Currently staying here now for another few days. We have also stayed here before. Jonah at the front desk was very accommodating to our room request. We were trying to get away for the week and wanted a room that was a bit quieter. Have enjoyed talking with Thomas, the bartender at the steak restaurant and all of the staff always says hello as we walk by. The resort fee covers the beach chairs, umbrellas, and water along with some other perks. This fee is disclosed and not surprising for a resort. We also ate out at the pool one day. Others have posted about the price of food/drinks. Well this is the W right on the beach in Fort Lauderdale. Kind of expected when you’re in a vacation spot. Have enjoyed our stay and will plan to come back!
