As a Bluegreen owner, I chose this property for a last minute getaway. It is easily accessible by public transportation from the airport, which is always a plus for me in a property. It is off the beaten path in a quieter area, but close enough to get to the action of South Beach if this is what you prefer.... More

My husband and I came to the solora for our honeymoon. As we pulled up we were a little freaked out because the building itself is older. However, once you walk through the front doors it's too notch. The staff was super friendly and the resort it self was well maintained and organized and clean. To stay here you HAVE... More

We've stayed in several BlueGreen resorts, and I must say, this is the first one that meets our standard of an actual resort and not just a suite hotel. Here's why: Oh my word! From the time we stepped into the room (we had 1-BR suite with 1.5 baths! on the 6th floor not far from the elevator), we were... More

We only stayed for one night on our way to Key West, but we were pleasantly surprised by how nice our room was. It was more like an apartment and had everything we could have possibly needed while we were there. It had private beach access and the pool area was great. We loved the large chess set and shuffle... More

We stayed recently for five nights. Although the reconstruction of the sixth floor was still going on, it was a great stay. The resort is small compared to others in the area, but that makes it quite charming. The grounds, lobby, rooms, bbq area, and beach space were well kept and nic. Our room, although one of the smaller ones,... More

We stayed five days during the week in mid-April. The area was very quiet, not much to do except beach activities. Restaurants were 15 min. walk away. Resort staff were friendly and apologized for the reconstruction noise. Rooms were newly renovated and comfortable. Heated salt water pool was fabulous. But we missed the busyness of South Beach.
