My fiance and I took advantage of the Winter Escapes package for a few much-needed days of vacation in Miami earlier this month. Overall we had a good experience at the Grove Isle Hotel and Spa. The hotel is located just off the coast of Coconut Grove on a small island. Our room was airy and spacious, if not completely up-to-date (we had some stuck taps on the sink/tub). We enjoyed waking up in the mornings and sitting on our balcony overlooking the palm trees and water. There is a nice walking path around the island and you can either work out at the Fitness Center or run to a nearby outdoor gym. The pool area was clean and had a good mix of shady and sun-exposed places to lounge. I enjoyed a massage at the Spa, and we both had a chance to go in the Watsu pool (jacuzzi with massaging waterfall) one afternoon.
My only two negative comments about the hotel are these: first, the elevators showed inspection certificates that expired in 2010. They were quite creaky and one elevator actually dropped 6 inches below ground level when we were about to get on it. We reported the incident to the staff, but after that we mostly took the stairs. Second, the restaurant is quite pricey, even for lunch-type items at the pool. We chose to eat off-site as a result; there are many nice restaurants less than 3 miles away in Coconut Grove that offer better value. Still, it would be nice if the property had a more casual/low cost cafe option for breakfast and lunch.
Overall I had a very relaxing and restorative stay at Grove Isle Hotel and would go back.
