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.

We stayed here in March with some friends who were in town, and as always it never disappoints. Even though it rained 1 of our day, we still had the best time. Our friends loved it and my daughter is overwhelmed and wants to go back on her own to stay. This is a truly great place to stay and... More

My husband and my one year old visited Solara Surfside in May and it was great. The beach right there at the resort was fantastic - warm, wide beaches, that are in my opinion much better than the ones in south beach. Because I have a family I wanted to be away from the hustle bustle of south beach so... More

First time we stayed here back in December of 2014, and it was such a delight! From the accommodations, to the service, to the people who have worked there many years, we couldn't have had a better time. While the property was under renovation it did not get in the way of our relaxation. We especially enjoyed speaking with the... More

It is important to remember that this is not really a hotel but rather a timeshare that uses extra inventory as hotel rooms. This becomes clear when you realize how little actual service there is away from the front desk - there is no daily room cleaning, towel exchange has to be requested, service in the social lounge and other...

Great beach front location with a great staff. Easy walk to Surfside. Surfside is all metered parking so be prepared. Flanigans is good and reasonably price. For Cuban go to Sazons at 73 and Collins. Metered parking there also!

Our family of 4 stayed 2 nights over Thanksgiving. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. Overall location was nice- tucked away from the hustle and bustle of South Beach which is nice when you're traveling with kids! Suites were spacious and clean. The sofa bed was fine for kids, but might not be great for anyone over 50 lbs!... More
