Well located, close to the beach and to many rest/bars, the hotel has a discreet art deco architecture renovated and well preserved. Rooms and service are average/good, medium size pool with a pleasant bar/rest for a snach or a drink.

Nice experience, good breakfast, good, pool, awesome bed, excelent location, for the first time in Miami, I was not disapointed. They have some sort of agreement with the chairs service on the beach, that gave us huge discounts. And they speak portuguese!!
