We've been to this resort twice now and it continues to improve. The location was great, just steps from several great restaurants and night life. There is no dining on the property but Ed Lugo always has snacks, beverages and even home baked cookies for his guests. I really love this place. You won't be dissapointed choosing Ed Lugo!

I had never been to Fort Lauderdale, so I was really taking a leap of faith with all my choices. This resort has such an overwhelming number of positive reviews, I figured it was a safe bet and it paid off big time. Colleen was super attentive and accommodating, and I really felt like I was at home away from home. My room was beautifully decorated and well maintained, and you're literally steps away from the pool. I ventured out a little bit here and there, and everything you could want is within walking distance (grocery store, restaurants, bars, nightclubs), but I spent most of my time quietly enjoying this little oasis. I'm looking forward to my next trip here. Thank you so much!

My wife and I stayed here for 5 days with our puppy. Ed was very accomodated and was always available if needed. Po was beautifully landscaped and the fenced in yard was perfect for our puppy. Location is great, close to Ft. Lauderdale beach and walking distance to restaurants and bars. Very safe neighborhood and everyone we met was very nice. Room was cleaned everyday and property was kept in great shape. All in all we enjoyed our stay and we highly recommend staying here. Do not hesitate to book or call Ed with any questions. Thanks for a pleasant stay!

I recently stayed here and loved it. It was my first time here and I wasn't sure what to expect but ended up having a great stay. The staff was warm and friendly; they treated everyone like family. The rooms were clean with great amenities. The resort is located in the heart of Wilton Manors and is walking distance to all the bars and restaurants. If you are looking for a great resort where you can get away from it all but still be close to all the action then this is your resort. I highly recommend it.

The hospitality demonstrated by Ed far exceeded our expectations and was greatly appreciated. The pool area was outstanding. The kitchen in our room needs some slight maintenance repair. We would definitely stay here again.

We selected this resort based on it's prime location, walking distance to everything. We felt like a guest in a friend's home, showered with amenities and lavish appointments!! We were only able to stay for one night but are trying to plan another trip with friends in the very near future!

Ed is top notch and his resort is quaint and fun. Can't wait to rerun.
5 on July 28, 2015
Rooms are amazing and the host is one of the bests in the industry. If you care for a nice swim in the pool that is the place to stay.
5 on May 30, 2015
This is resort is great, specially if you want to stay close to all the gay bars in Wilton Manors. It is a block away from all the clubs and restaurants. Great pool and jacuzzi to hang out at night after coming back from the bars. There is no onsite dining, but there are so many places close by that I rated a 5.

Ed has a great personality and is a wonderful, welcoming host. His well-behaved little chihuahua, Rocco, is equally friendly and personable. The guest rooms are in separate little houses along a quiet side street, walking distance to shops, restaurants, and hopping nightclubs. Our bedroom was large and comfortable as was the bathroom. Our unit came with a refrigerator and freezer which was nice for storing some perishable foods we were transporting home with us. Right outside our back door was a beautifully landscaped swimming pool with waterfall, hot tub, and a large size hammock in its own tented enclosure -- very romantic setting for a nighttime swim! Wilton Manors is a very gay-friendly town and has a large gay population. My husband and I really enjoyed walking along Wilton Drive meeting a lot of the cheerful, upscale townies at the many street parties up and down the street. People are very welcoming and no one feels excluded -- everyone is welcome. (Non-gay couples like us and families are welcome at the Resort and should not feel at all out of place.) We really enjoyed our stay in this fun B&B and friendly community and will definitely return in the future!

From the moment we arrived at Ed Lugo Resort we were treated with superior service by Ed Lugo and Colleen. Our suite #4 was amazing. Very nicely decorated and completely furnished with everything we would need for our week. The grounds are beautiful with an abundance of all the luxuries you would expect from a 5-star hotel. Ed and Colleen are constantly checking if you need anything and really go out of their way to ensure your stay is superb. The swimming pool and patio area is wonderful and the waterfall cascading into the pool is so very calming. I could go on and on but let me suffice this to say we will be back!! Very best wishes to you - Brian Falvey & Miko Peisel

Enjoyed our stay at Ed Lugo's Resort...not sure we ever saw any other guests while we were there - even though they were full. The property is very convenient to Wilton Manors. The rooms are clean, but the property is not in good condition.....Nothing seems to be done well. Power outlets, loose toilets, blinds, etc... The owner is a delightful host and the baked treats are divine.

A wonderful oasis just off of Wilton Drive. Rooms are quaint and the staff was the tops.

Ed Lugo resort is located right in Wilton Manors, walking distance to shops, restaurants and the nightlife. When we arrived on Thanksgiving day we noticed how well the grounds are kept with lots of flowers and palm trees. The room we rented was adorable with a very comfortable bed, it has the 'boutique feel 'that you get with a kimpton hotel. Overall very nice stay, if you are looking for location to Wilton Manors, a room with character, and a place to relax then you should check out Ed Lugo Resort.

I have stayed at a couple of resorts in Ft Lauderdale and Ed Lugo Resort has won my heart!!! Love the rooms and pool not to mention the awsome service. From the time we arrived until our dreaded departure, nothing but the best!!!!

Ed Logo's accomodations were warm and comfortable, had everything we needed plus more, but best of all it was fun!!

So close to "The Drive" but also so private and cozy. Ed Lugo and his staff our so warm and hospitable and attentive. Greeted with a refreshing beverage and tasty sweets that put the exclamation point on the accommodations. Highly recommend for a single, couple, or small group of people visiting Wilton Manors and surrounding area.

I sure did enjoy my stay, I was so close to everything n did not need my car a lot to get around. I would definitely come back.

Ed Lugo Resort is amazing...I have stayed there in April and recently in August. I even caught myself telling friends I was going home from an evening out...location...location...location within a few minutes walk to several clubs/restaurants (Alibi my favorite)...shopping, love The Mix designer clothing store! If you fly in get the Mercedes convertible...I got a red one...driving down A1A top down to any one of several beaches! The outdoor shopping mall in Fort Lauderdale is amazing (Beach Place)...will be back as soon as I can! Write it down this is the place to stay and vacation!

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. We spent time lounging in the hammock & hottub. Lourdes took great care of us. This place is so uniquely private & so close to everything at the same time. 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. Thanks again Ed & Lourdes! You guys are wonderful hosts!

My husband and I decedided to go away this year for our anniversary, we looked for several days in the Ft. Lauderdale area and just did not see anything we were looking for, and on my last try before booking at a chain hotel we found Ed Lugo Resort, and so glad we did. This was just what we needed a mini vacation to relax. We went to sit in their hammock for a few minuets, next we woke two hours later! Great experience, great people and great location! We will be back!!
5 on July 29, 2011
Ed Lugo Resort is welcoming, quaint and well appointed. Ed and Lourdes truly make you feel at home and go above and beyond to take care of you! The price, value, and everything they include for you is well worth it! We will definitely be back!

I had just turned 19 at the time I visited ED Lugo resort. I called ahead to make reservations when nobody else would book me a room because of my under 21 status. They were quick to say, COME ON OVER!. I drove there alone from the west coast, when I arrived, I was so tired, ED, and his staff were quick to come outside with big smiles and a great welcoming. Entering my 2 bedroom villa, I was stuck in amazement! Full living room with a big LCD tv, great decor, Fresh clean smell, beautiful hardwood floors, a fully functional kitchen, and heres the best thing, on the counter there is a big basket full of goodies! Oreos, cheese nips, crackers, chips you name it! Open the fridge and you find a bunch of sodas and refreshments. I diddnt touch a thing because I know how hotels charge per item, so I asked how much they are, ed simply replies, they are there for your confort and enjoyment, drink all you want, they are included with your room. Man, I was just confirmed definitely in heaven! I start to look around at things to pick at (my normal OCD routine). To my amazement, I could not find anything! The bathroom especially, custom toiletries, custom towels, Amazing everything! I diddnt want to leave. I really had a nice relazing time there, it was a nice get away from the parents, soak in the hot tub, take a nice swim, lounge out in the sun in an amazing landscaped backyard, eat my oreos and ships and get fat. lol, Ed, thank you for making this an A+ experience. Whenever someone mentions ft lauderdale, I say ED LUGO! I will see you guys again in 2 weeks on my next getaway! Mike

At first you may take it for two standard houses in an ordinary neighborhood …but looking closer – it is impossible not noticing the small inviting details and, arriving at night, all the lights, the marshals which Ed is lighting every evening. If you still had doubts, all disappears when you enter. There is absolutely nothing ordinary in the little world Ed created; with an eye for details that reflects in everything, inside and outside. This is not like anything we’ve had before -and we’ve stayed in many great hotels. Here you get a feeling of “being at home” … so much that our kids no matter what we did (traveling around a lot) – always ended with “Can’t we go back to Ed ..”.The house is very clean and fresh. Beds really comfortable & sheets marvelous. Kitchen with everything. The magic increases when you enter the garden; imagine a beautiful garden where love is showing in each detail; comfortable seating areas, sunbeds with fresh towels, a big hammock with romantically hung cloth, inviting walkways to the hot tub and hidden shower and plants around a pool which is always kept warm, making you long for a swim also at night when the air is colder like now in Nov. You get a feeling of being “of your own” …having other guests at the same time, but feeling of privacy and intimacy remains as if the place is all yours. Previous reviews made us choice Ed’s …and I shared opinions like “it sounds almost too good to be true …”, but I can only confirm; it IS true in each detail and Ed is the perfect host - always there for you without ever being “too much” … and all the small gestures …like fresh fruit brought to the pool …or the chocolate covered strawberries – just delicious …or the soft drinks always available. We warmly recommend Ed’s Resort; for the magic world he created inside, and his pleasant person. He is truly interested in the comfort of his guests in a pleasant, relaxed way … thank you so much, Ed, for contributing to make our stay in Florida unforgettable.

When we arrived - we could not believe our eyes. Too much to list everything but here's a partial list: -Ed, our charming host greeted us, welcomed us, took us on a personal tour, helped with our luggage -free snacks in the fridge including chocolate dipped strawberries, gourmet trail mix, cookies, crackers -free beverages in our fridge and in the fridge by the pool including bottled water, pop, diet pop, and beer. -when i declined the beer because i don't like beer, i was brought a bottle of sparkling wine from Spain (free) -feather top mattress -400 thread count sheets -tasteful decor -scented candles inside and throughout property -private patio with table and chairs to enjoy our dinner -plenty of towels in our room and pool side -most beautiful pool I've ever seen -Hot tub, pool, outdoor shower and canopy hammock all surrounded by lush tropical gardens including orchids when we were leaving, Ed was sorry we couldn't stay longer, because he didn't feel he had pampered us enough! Ed has definitely set the standard in luxury B&B's and I can't wait to go back!

My husband and I returned to Ed Lugo’s resort for the Labor Day Weekend. It was our second time there and we were joined by my sister-in-law and her husband. The second trip was just as wonderful as our first! The consistency in our experience was unbelievable. The pictures on the internet, while they were great, do not do justice to this fabulous place. This resort is even better than the pictures portray! The place was again impeccably clean, beautifully decorated, and spacious and it has everything you could possibly need. Ed was a fabulous host, paying attention to all sorts of details and making sure his guests were well taken care of but also respecting one's privacy. He was always accessible for any special requests or questions and was very friendly and sincere. The pool area is magnificent with a great hot tub, wonderfully landscaped pool area, beautiful orchids, and lots of chairs, a great hammock and a great waterfall in the pool. It has everything you need and Ed keeps his guests happy with complimentary sodas, beer and water. Never mind the wonderful plate of chocolate covered strawberries that greet you when you first get there and open the refrigerator. The rooms are very comfortable, the sheets are great and when you arrive you have chocolates and luxurious bathrobes waiting for you. The bathroom is clean, modern and beautifully decorated. This resort is conveniently located so you can get to a lot of different activities and sightseeing in Fort Lauderdale and Miami or you can just hang out in the back patio and pool area. The area also has some great restaurants that are located nearby. Once again this resort exceeded our expectations and Ed is an unbelievable host! Thanks again Ed! Ana & Family

We just returned from our stay at ed lugos resort.My wife and I and my baby stayed there for a week with my sister and her husband.When I say it was the most amazing vacation home I have been to,I am not exaggerating.I have been to tens of vacation homes but eds was the best.From the moment you arrive until you leave Ed treats you with royalty,like you are the only person on this earth.from the chocolate covered strawberry's ,to the chocolates on the beds.From the soft drinks and beer in the fridge and outside in a cooler by the pool for your convenience.From the snacks in the house,to the delicious dried fruits Ed brought us pool side every day,and the list goes on.The house was immaculate,the beds were more comfortable then five star hotels.When you walk out to the backyard you feel like you are entering paradise. Words and pictures can't describe it you have to see it in person.We would like to express our deepest appreciation to Ed,for the most amazing week!! ,WE WILL BE BACK!!!! To all those people out there who are thinking of staying by ed's resort, I promise you that you will not regret your decision.Thank you again Ed your the best.

As a fellow B&B owner of Inn on the Riverwalk in San Antonio, Texas, I wrote to all the B&B owners in Florida asking if we could do a swap - Ed was so gracious to accept! For some reason - perhaps in my vacation excitement, I was only expecting a room with two queens and was anticipating a 'cozy and perhaps snoring' week with my hubby and two teenage boys.....we got there at midnight and Ed stayed up and showed us around - wow! I was in heaven - a whole house?? AND we had 3 beds!!! The boys were delighted - but believe me, as the only girl I was more than estatic. It was like staying at our own private paradise ....we could have been happy there for a month. Ed was such a gracious host and as B&B owners ourselves - we KNOW how much blood, sweat and probably some tears, he has put into this place. It's gorgeous! The boys said the beds were like sleeping in marshmellows ;-) Overall it was a perfect stay - if only it had been longer ;-)

My husband and I found this place to be a wonderful tropical retreat. The house was immaculate and the grounds are gorgeous. There are gorgeous orchids everywhere in the house and outside. We rarely left the pool. Ed took great care of us. Every morning there would be fresh towels on the lounge chairs and at night he'd have all the candels lit. We really enjoyed our stay. Thanks Ed!
