Had a very enjoyable stay at Mondrian South Beach. First thing to say is that it's located on the Bay, not the beach. I was a bit unsure about this in the beginning as originally planned to spend most of my time at the beach. The reality is this was a non-issue. It's only 15 minute walk or 5 minute cab either way, so it's easy to go back and forth. And the pool is amazing, fun scene and beautiful views of the Bay. By the end I thought the location worked out perfectly -- hangout at the beach during the day and then the pool for the late afternoon and early evening, then down to Lincoln Rd or back to Ocean Drive at night.
Stayed in a suite, which was comfortable and spacious. The view from the suite was spectacular, overlooking the pool and the bay. The hotel design was stylish and cool without being cheesy. The pool area was beautiful and a great vibe, fun and relaxing place to spend the day, and incredibly scenic with the bay in the background. Location was great, one block from a Whole Foods and Starbucks, 10-15 minute walk to the beach or to Lincoln Road, or a quick cab ride.
Overall a great stay and definitely would be happy to stay at Mondrian South Beach again.
