The Atlantic Hotel & Spa stands with quiet and elegant appeal on Route A1A, Fort Lauderdale’s seaside main drag, directly across from one of the best sections of the town’s 20-plus miles of beach. Inside, the deep chocolate lobby walls, accented with spot lighting, open up to a curved, shiny wooden bar, where you can sit on ottomans and gaze at the ocean through enormous floor-to-ceiling windows. The bar adjoins Beauty and the Feast, a delightful French bistro overseen by executive chef Steve Zobel that has elevated the dining scene on this strip. The spacious guestrooms (starting at 620 square feet) are designed in a modern beach style, in a smooth gray palette with wood furnishings and ocean views from private balconies. The marble bathrooms have both shower stalls and freestanding tubs, and the living area thoughtfully includes a kitchenette fully equipped with a microwave oven, a two-burner stovetop, a refrigerator and cookware. Despite the proximity of the ocean, most guests choose to hang out by the fifth-floor heated swimming pool. And just off the pool deck is the 10,000-square-foot spa, one of the best in the area, which offers a clever treatment menu that draws on different cultures and makes use of herbs, spices and oils from a variety of regions.

How to Get There
We checked in here for our birthday weekend! Our check in went smoothly. The room was very nice. We were given beach chairs on day 1. The beach is right across and the chairs have straps like backpak. really easy to carry. They didnt have umbrella. We got back few hours later and they said, they got new umprella. They went even tagged yet but staff gave them for use.
One awesome surprise was when we returned at night they put delicious cake for us to celebrate our birthday! Such an amazing present and surprise it was. We were able to cut cake with kitchen cutlary in our balcony overlooking the ocean. Thank you for this! :)
We has non alcoholic drinks at the bar and they made us really nice drinks not just juice and soda. This was very good for us.
One thing to improve - I like the bose speakers option but unfortunately there were no wires for us to connect our phone and it was not bluetooth either. I would be great to have this functionality. But regardless I gave 5 stars.
Staying at The Atlantic Hotel & Spa for 4 nights in Fort Lauderdale was AMAZING! It was a half business/half couples vacation stay. I’ve already looked for when I can return to this location as it was a perfect stay. Beautiful and comfortable ocean front room with a lovely balcony. Watching the sunrise each morning from the balcony was a definite highlight. We just couldn’t get enough. Bathroom was so great and incredibly large with a soaking tub, large shower, double vanity, and separate toilet room. Equipped with stovetop, refrigerator, dishes, etc. Spacious bedroom with comfortable bed. Robes were so soft, warm, and comfy. Considered buying one...kinda wish I had. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Restaurant staff were so nice and gave lots of tips for area activities and great conversation. Food was excellent as we actually ended up eating there 3 times. They provide beach chairs and towels. Just cross the street and your on the beach. I could just keep going but you probably get the idea that this place is amazing! We can’t wait to return.
Upon arrival Bianca and Marie were fabulous! We were ready to relax alone in our room and even though we got there 4+ hours before check-in they put us right in. Along with the most amazing suite with such phenomenal amenities, the staff is just outstanding. At the Sky bar Jae chatted with us and King made great recommendations. At the Coastal bar James made us great margaritas. We decided to eat in our room and ordered room service from Coastal, the AMAZING restaurant downstairs. 40 minutes later we had delicious snapper and ricotta gnocchi, both a must try. The Key lime tart is worth it if you can fit any dessert. My husband will definitely return!!
The entire trip was wonderful. The staff at the Atlantic is phenomenal. Patrick made our trip the best. I looked forward to see him every morning for breakfast!!! Even the wonderful gentleman who opened the pool every morning...he made me feel welcomed and comfortable!!! And Mark the manager at night, he made us feel like family!!! The rooms are clean and ABSOLUTLY beautiful views. We will return!!!! Thank you Atlantic Resort and Spa for an awesome vacation !!!!!
Stayed in early December. Our room was great, our view was directly to the Atlantice.
Very nice. The staff at the Atlantic was attentive, the pool and the 5th floor center was what we expected. The beach was a short walk. Close to great restaurants. Overall a great experience. Would come back.
