    My husband and I booked the garden king suite with the private outdoor showers and we had a truly extraordinary and unparalleled experience. We cannot wait to book a return trip to Ed Lugo Resort. The resort is comprised of several buildings on both sides of NE 8th St, and our accommodations were across the street from those surrounding the beautiful, heated pool & waterfall. No matter, though, as our room had access to other private, beautifully landscaped grounds full of mature, tropical foliage and well-appointed outdoor furniture. Plus private outdoor showers! I'm not one to get naked outdoors, but let me tell you- it's quite a unique & cathartic experience to shower under palm trees and the Florida sky (behind the privacy of high fencing, of course). The main grounds were wonderful. It was uncharacteristically cold when we visited Ft. Lauderdale, but it didn't stop us from enjoying the heated pool each night. The pool was lit beautifully and heated well, so we were able to take a dip even at 2am (with outdoor temperatures in the 50s). Interiors-wise, the suite had a great big kitchen (we didn't really get to use it, so many great restaurants and things to do in the area!) and plenty of space. It had a decidedly home-y field, instead of the usual corporate hotel decor. We really liked it. Service was great and Ed personally walked us through the grounds and the room. All around: A+ experience.
