I was quite surprised by the size of the room and the overall cleanliness. I had an oceanfront suite and still think it was a tad pricey (and we have stayed places that were $1K a night with tons of ammenitites) , yet used AMEX points to bring the cost down. My husband is a CPA and buried in tax season, and I just needed a break from my work and the New York winter. I was very comfortable staying here alone and did not miss the South Beach madness, and when I wanted that sceney thing--I storolled up the beach to the Fountainebleu for a lunch by the ocean. The food at the pool bar is very average and although I always expect to pay more in this environemnt, the food and offering really was just average for the price. in traveling alone, I loaded the very generous size mini fridghe with fruit and cheese and snacks and wine and was quite happy sitting on the balcony and reading and kicking back. Even if just OK, nice that they provide a mini in-room coffee service as well. The 7th floor "Sunset Bar" was only open once during my time there and there was no food/bevergae service when sitting at the adjacent 7th floor pool. It seems it is advertised to be more than what it is. The main pools are nice, but so many trees you can't get much sun if that is your thing, so you have to hit the beach. I would recommend this hotel simply for the views, great beach access, large room size, cleanliness, OK pricing and being not too far from the "scene" if you want it. (Including a short ride to Bal Harbour shops!)
