We have had to wait three hours before check in, staff gave us the runaround and laughed after they said our room wasn't ready. If you don't speak Spanish, they will not give you good service. The hotel ATM ate my mother's debit card which delayed our check in further and they did nothing to help or speed up the... More

I had a really good experience at the Sanctuary, the staff were friendly and helpful, especially Andrew. The room was comfortable and quiet, the continental breakfast had some healthy options, not just pastries. I'd happily stay here again

pool was the size of a bath tub. you are able to use the sister hotel pool down the block but that is tiny as well and only 3 ft deep. room had no view, looked out to a brick wall. if you are going for a party scene, I would recommend a hotel on the beach.

Great little hidden gem. Nice and quiet but near all the action and a block from Lincoln Road. The beach club area was great. We were given towels and lounge chairs. They also had food and drink service on the beach. Will

Close to amenities, convention center and the beach. Ideal for person without car. Room OK, just few bugs. My was noisy, becuase next to the public restrooms - next time only upper floors. Breakfast poor, only few selection, everything with sweet, definitely not for diabetics.

I have stayed here before and knew already this is where I wanted to be when coming to Miami! Staff are amazing, rooms are nice and comfy, and the location is great when wanting to spend some time on Lincoln Rd. it's a little out the way from the strip BUT the mini golf cart that is presented to us...

Love the architect of this hotel, the hallway is open and out in the air with bamboos and water freely flowing, I love looking out the large glass window and door to the hallway while kicking my feet up in the living room/kitchen area, the beds are comfy and there is a nice deep tub shower.
