We stayed for 5 nights in the Palm Building. This is the building farthest away from the pool. We were happy with that location because it was quiet. But being closer to the pool could be an advantage for people with children or those with mobility issues. The room was clean and quite spacious. Although I had been worried about the noise from the planes landing at the airport, that was not an issue at all. In fact it was fun to see the planes coming in and I would regard the proximity to the airport as a positive overall. The resort itself is well maintained and the staff could not have been nicer. Everyone was so sweet and helpful! There is no restaurant on site but there are many restaurants nearby, as well as a Publix supermarket. Bottom line -- although there are fancier places to stay, this is a great place to have as a base if you want to explore Miami.
