Our party of 2 stayed here over the Thanksgiving holiday, 2012. Great location, clean rooms, clean pool. Check out the Decobike rack near the walk way/pool area. We rented bikes and rode all over Southbeach. This property IS on the beach. It's a little bit of a walk, but just grab your beach bag and head over to the beach. Or, the hotel will help you reserve an umbrella and chairs.
The restaurant was a little slow to serve, so we mainly ate at other locations. You can walk easily to most places. I believe the entire hotel was renovated in 2011.
Within 1 block, you can easily walk to the pharmacy that sells many items including groceries. We wish we would have walked there the first day for water, snacks, etc... The service at this property was great, in our opinion. We had a hard time tipping the staff as they actually said no tip was necessary!?!? Much thanks to them!
The pool area is very relaxing and we had no problem finding a chair. The staff will dress your chair with a towel, although I don't think there is drink service poolside. There is a small bar in the form of a hut, but we didn't visit. If you want to play volleyball or relax in the oversized bean bags - it's easy. Overall, YES we will go back. It was our first stay, but it's a place we like.
Ask for a room as close to the beach as possible.
