Great boutique hotel in a great location. The service was excellent in all areas -pool, beach, front area. The rooms size are large enough and lots of light. Super comfortable. I would stay there again for sure!

The hotel is well located, close to Lincoln Road and the main strip. You have beach chairs complimentary, but you have to pay $19 for a umbrella per day. The rooms are clean, but we found long hairs on the wall of the bathroom, best to the shower head, not sure how they got there. Housekeeping clean the rooms around... More

Really enjoyed staying here. It felt completely luxurious - my bed was so comfy it was like sleeping on a fluffy cloud! The location is superb - close to Ocean Drive but not smack in the middle of it where it might get a little too intense. Close to the beach and the pool is great. The only thing that... More

I stayed in the hotel for two nights recently, and felt like a King while at the resort. The food was amazing and the staff was even better. I received a wonderful experience & pain relief at the Spa.

The hotel is in an ideal location near the art deco strip, espanola way and the lincoln mall. The beach and pool were very nice. The staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. Good value for the money.

First time I have ever stayed here and the staff is out of this world. They do everything with a genuine smile on their face, help with anything you may want or need, and the rooms are impeccable. If you can get an ocean view, it is spectacular. Treat yourself to food and drinks at the pool, they're to die... More

Location, location... Being at the start of Ocean Drive you get the best of both worlds- peace and tranquility, with the excitement a short walk away. The atmosphere and decor is quintessential Miami, The grounds are maintained and decorated beautifully.
