“Great Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Made my booking online for a week, I needed to extend my stay and went back online to do so, found the same great rate and managed not to move from my original room. My stay in this hotel, was a really good experience, helpful staff, super clean, nice restaurant and a walking distance form lots of restaurants and amenities. Definitely will come back.

The pool is amazing and the view is spectacular. The service is super accommodating and kind. We had the best help with getting our cars and luggage settled - and its in a great location to all the fun grove bars and restaurants.

Recent scientific conference was held at this wonderful Miami location near Biscayne Bay in Beautiful Coconut Grove. The staff was very professional and easy to work with; very friendly and hospitable environment. Omar and Frank were excellent, contributed to making our entire stay very successful; attendees were very happy and pleased. The Sales Team, Catering and Conference Services and AV Services were awesome; ensured that all our needs were addressed and met. Highly recommend!

We stay at the Sonesta each fall when we are in town for a UMiami football game. We always have great service, clean rooms, and an excellent stay. The location is convenient to many restaurants and bars. The pool has an excellent view and great bar.

The last time we were there the pool had several children who were behaving irresponsibly. They were splashing adult guest and running around the pool. The parents were obviously terrible and said nothing. However, when the parents failed to intervene, the pool staff should have. For this I'm taking away one star.

This place seems to have been renovated fairly recently and the rooms were nice, but pretty standard for a mid-class U.S. hotel. My room had a very small balcony overlooking the pool and a view of the bay, which was quite pleasant. The room was clean and neat. It was also quite quiet, although road noise (rare) did seem to travel.

Location is close to the water (and a small park) and also close to a small mall and other shopping and some very good restaurants. The bar/restaurant area is on the 8th floor and has a nice patio, which is especially nice in the evening.

Service was pretty average.

I booked a superior room. The room I got, does not match with the standards of a superior room in the US. It was a small room, no balcony. The service at the pool was not good. We ordered a drink and must wait 45 min. for it. Valet service expensive and they scratched my car because of the very narrow ways in the parking.

We appreciate your comments about your visit to Coconut Grove. We over many different room types and our Superior rooms do not offer a balcony. We recommend you try a deluxe category room to ensure you will have a balcony on your next visit.

Stayed here for one night ahead of a cruise. Location was actually pretty nice -- a block from the ocean, a block from a mall with several restaurants and a Starbucks. Appears that the hotel is a mix of hotel rooms and permanent residents. We booked a king bed room with a kitchenette. The room was big, clean, and a pretty good value, I thought. The bathroom was big by hotel standards, and well-ventilated. Had a nice balcony that overlooked the pool deck below and the ocean, facing south. Desk staff was friendly, professional, and quick. Only objection was that the elevators could be a bit slow at times.

We are pleased that you stayed with us prior to your cruise vacation. We are close to the Port of Miami and as you mentioned, there are plenty of things to do in Coconut Grove before you set sail. We hope you will be back again before your next voyage.
