First good news on our arrival to the hotel was that owner gave us $100 discount even without us asking for that due to the fact that we were staying there for a week. All staff members were very polite and helpful.
Amenities and rooms
The hotel has two buildings. We were offered a room to choose from in both buildings. We stayed first three nights in a building with oped staircases and the other three nights in a building with closed staircases. Second building has bigger rooms, however, first building is more convenient for smokers. All rooms are non-smoking, so in the building with open staircases you can just step out of the room and smoke next to the container with sand. My wife is very sensitive to the smell of smoke and both rooms passed her inspection. Pool was clean. We like jogging and used area around hotel for that. One loop was about 7 min of jogging.
Wi-fi was free everywhere in the hotel. Speed was fast enough to watch Netflix.
Breakfast was very good for the value. Hot sausages and egg patties. Waffle maker was a hit with choice of two different types of dough every day. Muffins, danishes, coffee, hot tea, butter, cream-cheese, apples, bananas, milk, oatmeal, cereal.
It appeared that about 30% of customers were international, from Germany, France, England, India, China ... Most of the Americans were on their way to or from Florida Keys.
Main reason why we chose this hotel was due to its location. One hour to Miami and one hour to Key Largo is a very good compromise. Finally, we spent only 2 days in Miami and 4 days at the Keys. We have also went to see Coral Castle and Fruit & Spice Park (24801 S.W. 187th Avenue
Homestead, Florida 33031). Both locations were within 10-15 min drive from the hotel and definitely worth a visit. Half day is enough for each of them.
Conclusion: we would definitely choose this hotel for another stay or recommend it to our friends.
Ask staff to show you rooms in both buildings.
