“Casual elegance, what a pleasant change of pace from the national chains.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2011

What a wonderful weekend get-a-way. Just a two minute drive from activities in beautiful Coconut Grove Florida lies this romantic, elegant yet casual gem of a hotel.

Situated on what appears to be a little island a couple hundred feet from the mainland (don't worry, a small bridge will help you not get wet). One you arrive you'll immediately feel like you're in a boutique hotel in Bali or some other exotic island.

The room was spacious, beautifully decorated and incredibly comfortable with a relaxing view of the Bay.

We really loved the outdoor evening dinning. Many of the outdoor tables for two or four were located at multiple levels between the main outdoor dinning area and the water. Little walkways and decks transported you to these alcove dinning spots.

Another of our favorites were comfortable outdoor chairs clustered around constantly burning fire pits. Though a little warm to spend much time at the fire pit in August in summer, this must be a great place to relax in the Fall and Winter.

If you're looking for a romantic get-a-way to spend time relaxing away from the hustle and bustle of Miami, we highly recommend a visit to Grove Isle.

my room was great: beautiful view of the sunrise over biscayne bay from my bed. just open the double doors, sit back down with a cup of coffee and enjoy the show

the staff were very attentive

the resort itself is just like the brochure.

this little escape will be repeated. next time with hubby. i loved it.

Room Tip: if you can, upgrade to the bay front rooms. well worth it

This resort is the perfect spot for a quiet get away. I wanted to get the Miami experience without the party feel of South Beach. This resort is beautiful, quiet, romantic .. I could have spent the whole time lounging in one of the chairs placed waterside with the sea breeze blowing over my body. The location gives you easy acess to Coconut grove and the wanderful dining experiences there and also a small easy commute to get to So. Beach if you want to shake it up. The staff anticipates your needs and the stay is easy, hassel free and you actually feel pampered while you are there. I am from southwest florida, I will definitely stay here on my next visit to Miami.

What a wonderful get away in our back yard of South Florida. We brought our two children and our new puppy and everyone had a blast. The deals this time of year are incredible. The place was luxurious, the amenities on site was great from tennis to spa and pool. The food was delicious. I especially want to recognize the great service we got from Nicole at the front desk and the staff on the premises. The place is very dog friendly and it made it very easy for our new puppy to adjust.

I went to this hotel because there was a special offer which I took advantage of. I was very surprised how peaceful this location was. Even though it's not by the ocean it's by the bay and it is great to just sit have a drink and relax. Time simply stops and you don't know what time it is.
The rooms are very nice and comfortable. You even have a small TV in the bathroom.
It's a very small hotel with only 50 rooms, so there is not that multitude of people of the larger hotels which I really enjoyed.

Room Tip: Check in is not till 4 PM, and couldn't get the room any earlier.

A vacation from South Beach into a carefully landscaped tropical hide-out, this is what the Grove Isle hotel is all about. Nicely tucked at the end of this way too geometrical island; the Grove Isle hotel gets you to breath at your own pace. 

The small enough size (50 rooms) is perfect for those who want a good balance between humanity and 'me & my book' quite time. The view from the top floor makes the location a superb sunrise camera-ready-shoot spot. 

The staff seems genuinely interested in adding a personal touch but could get a little more efficient - well, slowness also goes with taking a vacation from the ordinary I guess. 

It's pet friendly - which is a plus if you have your own pet but it's a SIGNIFICANT DETERRENT if your neighbors left theirs in the room crying for over 4 hours. Poor furry guest... Also not great if the hotel does not allow you to avoid the heartbreaking crying - despite a request of changing room. I am a pet parent too, but in managing this the hotel fell really short. 

The pool is not a plus but having the beach chairs conveniently located few feet from the Biscayne Bay makes up for it. 

All and all, the location makes you to be thankful to be here.
