We wanted a few days of warm weather over the Christmas break and my husband found this property thought the Amex fine hotels and resorts. We reserved a terrace suite. We arrived at 8 in the morning and they graciously allowed us to check in at that early hour. They sent up a roll away bed ( as we had two girls with us) The suite was very nice with tile floors and big windows. The living area is relatively small. Once the rollaway was there it was cramped. The bathroom had a jacuzzi tub and separate shower. There's a set of little shutters over the tub if you want to look out at the room while you bathe. The bedroom is nice with a king bed and good linens. The highlight of the room was the terrace. It's very large. It's tiled with a concrete balcony. It has two lounge chairs, a small table and two regular chairs. There are nice views of downtown.
We had breakfast at the hotel several mornings and enjoyed it. The staff is friendly and the omelettes are excellent, as is the fresh orange juice.
For the kids ( two girls 13 and 14 years old) the pool was the star attraction. It's a massive pool with a waterfall feature. There is poolside service for drinks and food and there are polite employees who provide you with towels and water. We spent a fair amount of time lounging around and enjoying pretty drinks.
The hotel is located very close to Key Biscayne and not too far from Miami proper. We ventured out to the art district one day and to Miami Beach another but for the most part stayed at the hotel. Everyone we encountered was friendly and while certainly not inexpensive, it was a fair rate for such a nice property.
