Fantastic As Ever
I stayed at the Worthington in June of this year, my second time at this gay complex and the experience was every bit as good this time too.
Upon my arrival I was upgraded to a suite (having booked a standard room, which from my previous visit is also excellent). My suite was first class with large lounge area, separate kitchen with dining table and chairs (and included full size refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker), bathroom, bedroom and small dressing / clothes room with iron, ironing board and in room safe. Both the lounge and bedroom were equipped with TV and VCR (there are free to hire videos available at Reception). Air conditioning and ceiling fans were also a welcome (although standard) addition.
Breakfasts were fine: coffee, pastries, cereals, juices and sensibly, trays are provided which makes life easier for those who want to take breakfast back to enjoy in the room.
Visiting this time on my own, the staff made a real fuss of me and made me feel welcome and included in everything.
The grounds, lush and tropical, with excellent pool and hot tub are well maintained as are the rooms. Toiletries (including mouthwash and body lotions) are provided regularly during the stay and housekeeping ensure that the rooms are cleaned to the highest standards.
The only problem I found (as did a few other guests) was the loudness of the music round the pool, which in fairness, once it was mentioned to the guys on Reception was lowered to a more acceptable volume.
I would not hesitate to stay at the Worthington again and would recommend the place without any worries at all.
Thanks again, I hope to see you back soon
A Great Place to Stay
My Partner and I both enjoyed our stay between Christmas and New Years. Our room was clean and the staff very accomodating. The grounds were well maintained. However, the one clincher for us were the friendly people. From all over the US, we enjoyed the company that made up the Worthington. Everyone there got to know one and other, all the while respecting each others privacy. My only one critisism was that they could have cleaned the jacuzzi more often. But this was a small problem that was easy to over look, given the time of year and considering the cleanliness and attention to detail in the rest of the hotel. It was definitely worth the expense. We will be back!
Have a great day,
Loved It !!!
OMG this hotel is amazing. not only is it clean and tidy, great pool and spa but the staff are great as well. yes it might be a little more than other gay/friendly hotels around that area but it is definately worth it. it isnt one of those hotels where if you leave the door open, or curtain open a certain distance it means something, just friendly and relaxed people there to have a good time.
the rooms are cleaned every day and nice rooms as well, great setting, near the ocean about a two minute walk, not even. loved it there!!
Beautiful grounds, great rates, all round excellent stay
We found The Worthington to be a comfortable, clean and beautiful place to spend our vacation. We hardly ever left the resort. The rooms were so comfortable and warmly decorated. The fellow guests were all so nice, and alot of them have been coming to The Worthington year after year. Well we have joined them and made our reservation for next year already. What a great resort!

Absolutly Beautiful, A tropical Paradise
this was probally the most beautiful resort we have stayed at, the grounds well manicured. Large pool, Jacuzzi and nice courtyard waterfall. we found the rooms to well appointed and comfortable. The ownwers and the entire staff very friendly and helpful with respect were to go and things to do. Definently a must place to stay.
To much for too little
Way overpriced. The rooms have had some touch ups, but still...
The owners are greedy and try to milk yu for every cent, like phone calls and the like. When you're paying $200 a night for a bed you would think they would throw in a local call.
Very small quarters so you hear every sound from every room
Very nice and relaxing
My friend and I stayed there for a week in April and have nothing but positive things to say about the place,The staff were friendly and helpful/Rooms and beds were very comfortable and clean,The pool area was great and it's just a short two block walk to the beach.Wifi access would be a nice touch for people traveling with there laptops,If the owners happen to read this :)
If you have never been to Ft. Lauderdale,Renting a car is a must,As getting a cab in Ft Lauderdale is next to impossibe,The bars/clubs are spread out all over the place.
The rooms were ok and the grounds quite nice. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful upon my check-in; but the gentleman they have in charge of the place that weekend while the owners were away was extremely unwelcoming and downright rude. Rumor has it he's there to attract potential guests, but what he really ends up doing is to prevent those already there from returning or recommending the place to others.
Awesome little place
This is a great little boutique resort for gay men. The rooms are modern and very very clean. The grounds are immaculate and the pool is beautiful! Just a short walk to the great beaches of Ft lauderdale, the staff is very polite and the rates very reasonable.

I arrived at Fort Lauderdale airport around 5.30am, but wasn't fully out of the airport until around 8. I'm pretty sure this was the slowest entry into a country I have ever experienced. Once I got out, I really wasn't looking forward to waiting around and getting 3 buses, so I had a few cigarettes and wandered glumly to the bus stop, but I made a quick inquiry with the shuttle bus guys, and decided to wait for a shared bus into town, straight to my hostel. As it ...
... Florida bound. we arrived in Florida to a balmy 80 degrees and a lovely warm breeze, ahhhhhhh, perfect! The hotel shuttle picked us up and took us to The Hampton Inn. After checking in we walked over to the little mall next door for some fruit & yogurt for our supper. we are both exhausted after the short night and long day so quick showers and off to bed. tomorrow we ...
... our way to Central Park. Yes a real open air park in the middle of the ship. We head to the Park Cafe for some lunch. A lovely, make your own salad, followed by delicious roast beef sandwiches. We then head to Cafe Promenade. More photos, more oohs and aahs. This ship has just about more of everything. As impressive as it is I can't help but have the feeling we are in the middle of a giant shopping mall rather than on a ship. But that's just this section. The ...
... Honey (700ml) for $13 (bloody outrageous if you ask me). By the time we got back on campus, it was after 8 and Sean and I had to clean the flat, before all the basketball boys came over. Sean had organised a "Rage Cage" session with his teammates (which is their name for the hectic pre-drinks). All the boys I met were good blokes and welcomed me with open arms. This was evident during the game they coincidently call "Rage Cage", where banter was flying all over the shop. To say ...
... unique shaped, resulting in a larger area and balcony. The only drawback is the balcony wasn’t completely covered out to the banister; only halfway. But other than that, we are happy. It was windy, so we attached Rosalind’s Birthday banner to the balcony using duct tape (yes I said duct tape…I purchased a small roll in the hotel gift shop. The string I bought would not work. After attaching the banner, we unpacked our suitcases, hung up ...
