"Very satisfied honeymooners!! Will return!" Ed Lugo Resort Tip by Rachel82

Ed Lugo Resort, Wilton Manors: 241 reviews and 0 photos

My husband & I just returned from our honeymoon stay in villa 2406 (2 bedroom, full kitchen, dining & living room areas). We really couldn't be any happier with our stay. I found it while researching online and emailed the resort back in February before booking to ask if we could bring my small dog. I received a quick response with a friendly message from Ed giving his permission. Upon checking in, Ed greeted us with a glass of wine and chit chat. The office is decorated beautifully with fresh flowers everywhere. Ed was warm and genuine, offering up reccommendations for nearby restaurants. He introduced us to Lourdes, who showed us around the pool area & to our villa located about 5 steps from the pool- it is absolutely gorgeous! Especially at night, the pictures & reviews do not lie. The decor inside the villa was boutique-like, tastefully done and very nice. There were fresh flowers throughout, robes, chocolates, complimentary snacks & drinks, a nice display of chilled champagne with glasses and chocolate dipped strawberries. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you'd need to cook in. The first night we used thier outdoor grill & had dinner on the back patio, which was beautiful. The heated pool is lit up very nicely at night, and paired with the waterfall & exotic foilage everywhere, it is simply stunning. Everything screams romance and relaxation! We spent time lounging in the hammock & hottub. We also pretty much had the pool to ourselves most of the time, which was great because I could have been perfectly content never leaving this property during our entire honeymoon. A nice touch is their outdoor shower made private by more trees & various foilage. Lourdes took great care of us, checking on us daily, bringing extra towels, etc. Although we refused daily housekeeping, it was offered to us. She even offered to walk our dog! There was someone on the property 24/7 if we needed anything. This place is so uniquely private & so close to everything at the same time. We reccommend visiting Le Patio restaurant if you're looking for a romantic dinner out, a 5 minute walk from the resort (amongst various other close by restaurants). There are plenty of things to do in town & the resort is a 10 minute drive from the beach as well. All in all, we loved this place & will be back. The value, hospitality and personalized touches you get for the price can't be matched. While coming home yesterday (we live on the other coast), we had driven about an hour when I realized I left some clothes in our unit by mistake. We called Ed & he kindly offered to mail them to us. If you are considering this place for a private getaway with your significant other, DO IT! You won't be disappointed. I highly reccommend 2406 for it's amenities and location by the pool. You could comfortably have 2 couples stay in this unit without it being too cramped, which is exactly what we hope to do in the future. Thanks again Ed & Lourdes! You guys are wonderful hosts!

Unique Qualities: Private right in the middle of the city, like your own sanctuary that's still close to great dining. Service is exceptional & tailored to the individual. Very small and intimate place, not to mention gorgeous!
