Great location - close to the Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International - free shuttle pick up and drop off to / from the airport. Close to strip malls and lots of eating options. Close to public transport, eg the Sun Trolley HOHO for $2-3 all day pass. Close to the cruise terminal for paid shuttle or taxi service. Re the hotel itself - large king size room, very clean, complimentary hot breakfast. Great customer service from the front desk

... an email asking us not to arrive at the port until 1pm, but by the time we got there, it was already a hive of activity.
Ted and I wandered around looking lost until figuring out where to check our bag in, and where to check ourselves in. The process was surprisingly simple, mainly because we'd booked Concierge class. I don't really know what that means, but it sounds fancy and it's something we like to brag about.
One thing that was a bit disconcerting waiting ...
We were pretty tired arriving in Fort Lauderdale at about 5:30am. After a lonnnnnng security process and many an annoying American accent, we were through to the other side with the dilemma of what to do with our bags.

We then checked in and got told that to fly into Panama you have ...
... went in and rushed back out - but unfortunately I left my new ray ban glasses in my cubicle. I remembered as soon as I got back to the taxi rank, but when I rushed back, despite it being pretty empty it wasn't there. I was furious with myself as they're really expensive and most importantly I really liked them! So it finished the evening on a bit of a low for me. However overall the kids had a fab last night in Florida.
... br> By then it was time for Trivia however when we arrived, only Janice was there to let us know that for various reasons, trivia was a no go for this evening. Dinner was Plan B so off we trotted to the Da Vinci and sat at a table for two with other tables for two beside us so we could chat … which we did … shared a few laughs etc.
When the couple with the reservation for the window arrived, they said they were late as they had been to ...
We hadn't planned on going back to the US, but amazingly it was cheaper for us to fly to Fort Lauderdale and then to Lima, rather than flying directly from San Jose to Lima...plus this meant that we were able to experience some more of the States :)
Spirit Airlines is based out of Fort Lauderdale, which explains the price. And don't let any bad reviews sway you otherwise - there is nothing wrong with Spirit! It's like a local Jetstar flight, ...
