So we booked our vacation and booked a one bedroom loft/suite. We were told that we had our own private balcony facing the water. That if we rented a car it would be free parking. The pool had a bar opened all year round and was open until midnight and later on the weekends until 1-2am depending on the amount of people that were out there. We showed up and of course it was nice AFTER we found the place and where to go. Going back and forth from their office across the street. The first morning the alarm was going off on our floor and woke us up EARLY AT 9AM!! We follow the emergency exit down the stairs while NO ONE else was exiting their rooms. We were VERY CONFUSED!! Once we get outside half dressed mind you we se absolutely NO ONE else outside. We went to the front desk and they said they had NO IDEA what was going on that there were NO alarms going off. So we argue and tell them it woke us up and it was going off and we heard it outside our room. At this point I am wondering WTH is going on. So we go back up stairs and lounge around when it goes off AGAIN!!! and WHEN i SAY THAT THING WAS loud OMG!!!! So this time we sat in our room and called down stairs to ask WTH is going on. They insisted they had no idea. Personally I think maybe they were planning on possibly stealing our things. I have NO idea wth to think. So this is strike one. Then in the middle of the night as we are sleeping the long blinds mind you its a huge double story window well they just started falling off I believe two of them fell so obviously they were already broken. Whenever we went to the pool it was closing at 7pm. I asked for a manager NO ONE helped us. They said no one was in the pool so they were closing. They constantly had kids running around (track team, IDK) every day. Never could go out by gym in peace always a lot of kids hanging out. Whenever I went to the office the person I had t speak with was NEVR in. I gave up and just tried to enjoy the days we had left. Mind you we dealt with this for the entire time we were there. Issues and NO ONE knew what to do or how to help us out. Now I was there for 9days. SHADY I would NEVER use this place again!! I would NOT recommend this place either..NOT To mention our view the parking lot they had across the street where you come into the building on the main street 7Eleven was on. I saw NO water view...AWFUL! I wanted my money back and had NO LUCK! No one still hasn't called me back since I was there and I asked EVERYDAY! this WAS FOR OUR 2ND YEAR ANNIVERSARY! The ONLY good thing is I loved that we were literally across from the Mall,(SHOPPING), MUSIC RESTAURANTS AND CLOSE TO THE TROLLEY TO GO TO SOUTH BEACH! OVERALL i WOULD LOVE TO VISIT MIAMI AGAIN BUT NEVER STAY/RECOMMEND THIS PLACE!!!!! Sept 2012
