We stayed here last year, August 2013, which happened to concur with my sisters 14th birthday. One of her requests was to get a real coconut from a palm tree. So we decided to inquire if this was possible and to our surprise, one of staff members told us he would try his bets to get her a coconut (and... More

I stayed 3 nights in May and this hotel helped me to enjoy my first Miami vacation. Aside from the confusing entrance from the road it was a gem. The room was exactly how it appeared on advertisements. That moment that travelers look forward to when they open their room door was a "ahhh" instead of a "oh no". It... More

Clean, spacious rooms, with full kitchen and floor by floor updates coming in October. Small exercise room that faces the pool but lots of equipment. Clean pool, jacuzzi and pool deck with a variety of easy listening music playing. Game room, light refreshments and activities room coordinated by Kramer. Thanks Kramer, I thoroughly enjoyed the Yoga (I'm feeling it today!)... More

We spent 4 nights here in late April and it was a wonderful and relaxing time. The unit we stayed in (1 bedroom - #307) was clean and spacious. The only downfall was the lack of view of the ocean. Maybe if you were higher up you would be able to see it. Being able to get lounge chairs, for... More

After a very long winter in Wisconsin, it was absolutely wonderful to get to Solara. We had a nice view of the ocean from our balcony and the room was very tidy.

My friend and I stayed here for our birthday celebration. Room was spacious with a kitchen, dining room, living room and oceanside balcony. It is not a posh hotel, and is showing its age a little...but it was relaxing, clean and safe. Amazing service, great hammocks, short walk to grocery store & several kosher restaurants....also no bugs of any kind!... More

I would label this as an above average resort. The room is not the nicest I've ever stayed in but better than most. The staff are all friendly and helpful, especially Sergio, Carlos, and Kramer.
