Bed sheets are wet because of humidity and lack of proper ventilation in the room. We are ok with the south beach parties and stuff but the walls are paper thin and you hear every other movement in the corridor. We couldn't sleep all night. Desk stuff seemed very boring. All stuff in the room is very old and whole... More

Great location, rooms spacious and bed surprisingly comfortable. However I feel the negatives far outweigh the positives. Walls are paper thin, you could hear your neighbours shenanigans all through the night. The room amenities listed a mini bar, it did not exist at all not even a fridge. Phone didn't work, iPod Dock didn't work. No towels in the room... More

To start with, the hotel has advertised "lush tropical gardens, super sized swimming pool with sun loungers." He super sized pool was the regular hotel size and many areas of missing cement on the bottom. The half dozen palm trees and a few planters are not my idea of lush tropical. The pool is situated next to the laundry are... More

The Carlton is about a five minute walk away from the beach on one side, and a five minute walk to the car and club scene on the other. Despite all that, the rooms are very quiet during the day. The location is great and everyone there is very relaxed and pretty helpful. The rooms are really airy and big,... More

The check in wass perfect, but the rooms deserve renovation and room service must be improved (3 hours to get towels in the bathroom!). No double glazing in all rooms, plumbing must date from the 60s ....

Naomi and CJ from the concierge staff make everything good. They are pleasant and knowledgeable about the area. Great front porch for hanging out and people watching and just steps from the white sands of south beach. Could not pick a better location. PJ Mass

Rooms are a million yrs old, no renovations, walls are paper thin and hotel is noisy as hell.. And I'm a young person who likes to party! But not when it disturbs neighbors and those trying to sleep. Loudest door slams I've ever heard because of badly constructed old hotel. Back faces a noisy alley where trucks go up and... More
