“Fabulous visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

I loved this unique hotel. The suite concept was perfect for us. We had a great view of the water. The service was top notch. One of the best things the hotel has going for it is the pool area. There are great tuck away areas to read and/or work under the foliage. We ate in the hotel restaurant twice and it was great each time. In addition, it is a very short walk to the heart of Coconut Grove.

Dear florala,
We are so happy to read your review of your recent stay at The Mutiny Hotel. There were so many positive highlights, it is clear you took advantage of what our hotel has to offer. Two of our best selling points are our proximity to the historic Coconut Grove central district and the hidden gem of our pool area. I see you also upgraded to a view of the sailing club and harbor along with a few visits to our exquisite Thai restaurant. We are happy your stay was complete and hope to meet you during your next stay in the Coconut Grove area.

After consulting Tripadvisor, we booked The Mutiny for two nights to accommodate our family of four prior to a cruise. With so many mixed reviews, we were not sure what to expect, but the price was so much better than other places near the water that we decided to risk it. The first night we stayed in a one-bedroom deluxe. The suite was attractive and quite roomy.

Our trouble began once we went to use the sofa bed. There was hair on the sheets when we opened it up. We called down to the main desk and a security guard delivered us some new sheets. After making up the bed, our two adult daughters tried to sleep on it. One ended up sleeping in a chair for part of the night and the other crawled in to the very comfortable king bed the next morning to try and catch up on some sleep.

We requested an upgrade to a two bedroom for the next and final night. We could not get an answer as to whether that would be possible. We were told to pack our stuff up when we went out and the staff would move it when and if a room became available. We were to be called to confirm. We left a note with our suitcases asking the staff to also move all our groceries that were packed up and in the fridge.

When we returned about five, the front desk did not know any thing about the request, but was able to accommodate us in a two bedroom. When we returned to the old room we found that all our groceries were gone, the cleaning staff having misunderstood our note.

The two bedroom suite was extremely spacious and very comfortable. We all had a great night's sleep there.

We still think this hotel is a great value for the location, even with losing about $60 worth of groceries. It could be improved by upgrading the sofa beds and better equipping the kitchens. I always assumed that a full kitchen would provide at least a few pots and some cooking knives for some simple meal preparations.

Room Tip: The sofa beds are uncomfortable for one person and unusable for two. If four are travelling, suggest...

Dear FLWfans,
I would like to first thank you for reviewing The Mutiny Hotel. All constructive reviews are highly scrutinized by our management team and staff in an attempt to evolve our service in a positive way. I am very sorry to hear that the sofa bed in the initial room you checked into was uncomfortable. We have addressed this issue and are in the process of improving not only the sofa bed in the room you stayed in but also throughout the hotel. The management team was made aware of your particular issue which is why we know the rooms in question. This leads me to the communication, or lack thereof, issue which turned your situation from a manageable one to a great inconvenience. For that, we would also like to offer our sincerest apology. Effective communication is vital in ensuring a guest’s stay is exceptional. It appears your situation might have been resolved well if we had addressed your concern efficiently and effectively. We have used your situation in our monthly meeting and hope to never encounter this breakdown in communication again with new policies that we have put in place. Thank you again for taking the time to review The Mutiny Hotel. Your review highlighted some of positives of our hotel and would like for you and your party to return to our hotel so you may see how your constructive criticism has improved our product and service. We hope to see you soon!

We were in Miami for a family wedding, and were thrilled to find the Mutiny Hotel..travelling with 3 adults, the suites are perfect. Single brother had privacy in "living room" area, while we (married couple) enjoyed our comfy king bed in bedroom. The pull-out queen sofa worked perfectly for brother. Full kitchen, lots of closet space, and balcony overlooking pool, fabulous. The pool, ahhh. A tropical oasis, worth EVERY PENNY, tiki torches lit every night, hot tub, mature tropical foliage, pile of large towels to use, waterfall, koi pond, never wanted to leave. The little cafe is good, (vegetable egg rolls delish), pool-side service. Walk to awesome Coconut Grove nightlife, stone's throw from Vizcaya.
The staff is wonderful, hotel is spotless and smells so good in the lobby. It is not a new hotel, but is updated and pretty, with character galore. Other family stayed next door at Sonesta Bay Resort, which was fine, but they wished they had OUR hotel! Will stay nowhere else in future Miami visits.

Room Tip: I think some of the rooms don't have balconies, ask for room with one.

I stayed at the hotel for a week during a recent business trip. After working outdoors all day it was so wonderful to come back to the hotel and be able to hop into the pool and hot tub. I understand that the pool has recently been heated. I have been in several hotels in Miami in December and January and none of the pools are heated and the water is super cold. The Mutiny pool area is very secluded and quite charming and you are very close to the bar.

Room Tip: Ask to be on an upper floor near the front of the hotel especially if you like sleeping with the win...

During a recent stay I arrived early and was assisted by Matt at the front desk who got me checked in early! He did it without hesitation or question. The concierge Kahlil(sp) was great with finding me transportation to the wedding I was going to. The rest of the staff was very nice as expected, not even an issue with valet.

Rooms are converted apartments so lots of space with a full kitchen. As much as I dislike Miami the mutiny provided me with an escape from the hectic Miami ways.

For us, Coconut Grove was a great location to stay during our Miami trip. We were able to sail on Biscayne Bay from a pier steps from the hotel, visit the fabulous Fairchild Botanical Gardens without costing a fortune in taxi fare, and wander though the village in the evening enjoying the cafe scene. We loved our day on Miami Beach but would not have wanted to stay there - too many people, too much noise. Our suite at the Mutiny was great - very clean, well laid out, and comfortable, including a full kitchen, washer/dryer, living/dining room, king bed, robes etc. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Public areas attractive and spotless. Lovely pool in a lush garden. Tip: For a fantastic view of the Bay & sunset, go for poolside drinks at the Sonesta Hotel next door & bring your bathing suit.

Room Tip: Ask for a room above 4th floor. Ask for pool or bayview

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Few destinations can boast such a distinctive and colorful character as Coconut Grove. In the heart of this tropical paradise sits The Mutiny Hotel, a luxurious all-suite property neighboring the pristine waters of Biscayne Bay. A bright swatch of coral set against the intensely blue South Florida sky, the Mutiny's 12-story tower epitomizes the South Florida style; vibrant colors compliment chic accommodations elegantly decorated in a modern-lavish motif. Long a playground for the elite, The Grove - as it is known by locals - is also a second home to many celebrities, artists, and jetsetters. Its entertainment and shopping district reflects the quirky-yet-sophisticated nature of its residents, and visitors can find everything from haute couture to haughty kitsch in the many shops at CocoWalk, steps from The Mutiny's front door. After all, where else can you see stars in broad daylight, dance through an island festival, and enjoy dinner at a funky cafe? Only at The Mutiny. ... more   less
