My wife and I stayed for a week over New Years. The hotel is new, having been built in the past few years. We were in a regular room (no upgrade) and it was spacious with a beautiful view of the ocean. It looks like they've designed the place so that all of the rooms have ocean views. Most important was that the bed and pillows were very comfortable, the room was quiet, and the blackout shades kept the room extremely dark when closed. The room also had a lot of nice small amenities including plenty of power outlets, large bath and shower, spacious closets, good sized fridge, large balcony with comfortable loungers and table. All very nice for a basic room.
The hotel has four pools. Two are reserved for condo owners, one is a family pool and one is adults only. We were staying without our daughter and so spent most of our time at the adult pool. Great to see that they enfored the adult-only rules since the family pool was very crowded with kids (our daughter would have loved it).
Servive was great. Everyone was attentive and knew us by name. Really nice staff.
My wife went for a massage at the spa and gave it top marks.
J&G restaurant was very good. The other restaurants (e.g. Fresca at the pool) were so-so. Definitely try the desserts at J&G.
We took one of the house cars to dinner one night and were pleasantly surprised when it pulled up and were realized that it was a Bentley (only in Miami!). Really nice ride.
The only potential negative is that the location is far from South Beath. It's great if you're looking for some quiet relaxation time but not ideal if you plan to spend a lot of time in SOBE.
We loved it and would definitely return.
