Right across the street from the beach
The Atlantic Resort and Spa is part of Fort Lauderdale's main strip of beach hotels, along A1A highway. Most importantly, it is right across the street from the beach.
Situated between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, the Atlantic Resort and Spa has beautiful views all around and is close to many beachside hotels and restaurants. The Fort Lauderdale Beach is just across the street and Bonnet Gardens, home to beautiful flora and fauna, as well as a museum, is just blocks away.
Although there's a pool deck overlooking the ocean, a lovely spa, and cutting-edge gym, the real stand-out here is the large rooms that start at 600 square feet (and each one has a full kitchenette and spacious marble bathroom). The ground floor restaurant and lounge includes a wrap-around porch for eating al fresco, and more casual dining can be had up on the pool deck. The hotel doesn't quite match its main competitor, the Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale, but it's much more affordable and prices are very reasonable considering all you get for your money.
