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.
In the Area
Explore Fort Lauderdale with Beach Hopper Tours. They offer open-air transportation and guided tours; it’s an ideal way for visitors to get their bearings. Nearby is Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, a hidden gem nestled between the beach and the Intracoastal Waterway, and across from it is the Bonnet House Museum and Gardens, a historic artist’s estate. For a casual lunch or dinner, head to Greek Islands Taverna or the bustling Las Olas Boulevard, the main strip, which has numerous dining, shopping and nightlife options.
How to Get There
A weekend getaway, this hotel was awesome. Spent time on the beach, at the pool and got a massage.
The room we got was an Ocean View King Suite and the view spectacular. In the room there are two full bathrooms: the master bathroom has a soaker jetted tub room for two and a huge double shower (you can have a dance party in there if you wanted lol). The room has a living room and full kitchen including dishes, full size fridge (it is empty), a dish washer, a stove and microwave.
The spa was amazing. I recieved what they call a body melt and it was as described. My masseuse, Bianca was fantastic. The spa is separated for females and males, there are no common spa jacuzzi, sauna, or steam rooms.
The pool was small. The pool bar does not have the best selection but they do try their best.
The resort fee provides you with beach towels, chairs, beach umbrellas, basic wifi, a welcome drink, 24-hour fitness center and you can use the spa jacuzzi, sauna and steam room while the spa is open without booking anything, plus 2 complimentary Fiji water per day.
Great food, large portions, appropriate pricing. EXCELLENT service from Scott. Will definitely come back! Great views of the beach. Recommend the crab cakes and bowls. Orange juice was freshly squeezed amazing.
Had a great breakfast. Our server Scott was amazing!! The avocado toast was delicious and their fresh squeezed orange juice couldn’t have been better. The homemade raspberry jam for the toast was off the charts!
One of the best hotel experiences I've ever had. The Staff in were extremely welcoming and heartwarming. Sally in particular was my favourite person ever. Apart from the fact that she was a fellow trini, she went above and beyond the call of duty to make us comfortable. SERVICE AND COMFORT 100% Thanks again Atlantic and Sally.
The staff went above and beyond to ensure we had a pleasurable stay. In particular, a Trini, Sally was extremely kind and helped us a lot. Gorgeous view, very clean and just spectacular service. Would definitely be coming back!
