      Fantastic As Ever

      from

      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

      from

      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 !!!

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      Not bad

      from

      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

      from

      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.

These include the Australian Melaluca (paper bark) tree, Brazilian Pepper tree and heaps of tropical fish, also snakes like the Burmese python which completes with the alligator at the top of the food chain.

It was a shame to enter under such circumstances because the entrance into Key Biscayne is stunning and deserving of attention. You can see the skyline of Coconut Grove and Miami. You go past a light house and some stilt houses in the middle of the bay. (First Mate later learned the stilt houses were old, abandoned fishing and vacation homes donated to the state. They were lovely and in spite ...

The trip back went a lot more smooth then on the way here because we weren't delayed. When we got to the Miami airport we checked in and waited around 1 1/2h then ...

      ... We’re trying not to be too excited. We’re all up early. We grab breakfast, load the rental car with our luggage, and at 8:30am, we’re off. Four hours later, we’re in Ft. Lauderdale and on our way to the port. We arrive at Dollar Rent-A-Car right at the entrance to the port only to find it mobbed with people. We pull in and wait for what seems like an hour, but in reality is only about 20 minutes. Finally, the guy ...
