Our travel agent booked us here before our cruise in march 2014. Very nice hotel and updated. Very expensive. We probably will not stay here again before our next cruise due to the price. They do have free shuttle service to south beach. There is an extra cost to be brought to the cruise ships. I believe it was 7 dollars and fills up fast. The pool was out dated and dirty and so was the hot tub. We did not want to get in. Pool area was small as well. They did have a bar outside which had expensive drinks. They do have a very nice gym which includes dumbells, machines, cardio equipment and is very large with nice view over looking the bay. Also has fresh fruit, water bottles and granola bars which are complimentary. The hotel is connected to some cafes, shopping and restaurants which are a bit more affordable. Service was very nice. Everybody was in a great mood.
