I absolutely love this hotel, from the decor to the polite courteous staff. I have been here 4 times and plan to come back this year again. It is convenient to everything you desire to do. Starbucks, shopping, the beach is right across the street, bistros, clubs and all within walking distance. You valet your car when you stay here,... More

Room was large, very clean and the hotel is very nicely kept. The location relative to the beach is unmatched. Hotel staff was very friendly. The free wifi was a little spotty, but otherwise no other complaints. I will definitely be back.

The view of the ocean when you wake each morning is beautiful,the room was very clean and comfortable and we were cared for very well by all the staff.The negative comments often relate to the restaurant which has no connection to the hotel and is noisy...

Ok let's get the positives out the way first as they are very few. The location is great, really close to the beach. The beds were also made each day and fresh towels. Now for the negative: 1. Key card is a nightmare to use and a really old system so is very temperamental. 2. Not even a welcome manual... More

Seeing other reviews makes me understand that the hotel seems to offer different prices via travel agents and we seemingly got an excellent rate for the location, which is why I give this an excellent rating. For under 200€/night via a travel agent booking site it is for its location and service a best-buy. I felt that the staff was... More

Lost laundry, no hot water, horribly uncomfortable bed and pillows, blaring music late into the night, and indifferent staff makes this a place to avoid at all costs. You've been warned! Why does the restaurant down stairs (not a club) need to pump repetitive latin dance music until after 1 a.m?

Had a one night stay here before flying out to the Exumas. South Beach is fun and this hotel is right where you want to be. However, DO NOT stay here. It is a very run down and quite expensive property (we paid $240) profiting from its location. The ground floor is a bar and grill. Drunk people were right... More

Stayed four nights here. Great location but although the room was large it was very In adequately equipped. Poor lighting. Poor storage. The fridge overheated. Noisy aircon and an intrusive extractor fan somewhere was always in the background. Difficult to drop off luggage and on the date we arrived no valet parking. Overall expensive for what it provides and would... More

Gloria Estefan's swank location on the water is the place to be seen or to catch a shot of Miami's crazies. Try the seafood pasta more food than I could handle at a fair price included a 2 lb lobster .

We did not stay here but we did stop for drinks. Dazzled by the fact that it is Gloria Estefan's hotel and they self publicise that they have the best mojitos we (party of four) decided to stop for drinks. We should have moved on when we were told that the only drinks we could have were in the ridiculously... More
