“Good spot for South Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Stayed for 4 nights, it's a very well maintained hotel, nice pool area which was quite, it's one block to the beach and the highs on Ocean Drive.

Pleasant reception staff, there where a couple of outstanding people David would do anything for you, Rey in the bar would always make sure to tour the pool area handing out water, and asking if you needed a drink I'm sure the sales are higher when he is working. We also did the historical walking tour, which is excellent.

The rooms a fresh simply decorated and of a reasonable size, this is an older hotel, nice bathroom,.

We are glad we choose the Blue Moon, good location for everything in South beach, nice staff.

Green Features: Option to not to have bedding changed every day, which is good.

Brilliantly located just one street back from South Beach and close to all the action. Jose and Roberta on front desk were amazing from the moment we arrived - dealing with parking the car, dealing with the bags, offering refreshments, giving good advice, being welcoming, smiling and friendly throughout.
We'd sometimes get back to the sanctuary of the hotel and chill by (or in) the pool where the bar staff were always attentive, efficient and friendly and made you feel like a million dollars.
Overall, a superb experience which makes you look forward to going back to Miami.

Room Tip: Rooms in the old building are better located than rooms in the extension (same size, but just feel...

Green Features: Staff were aware of environmental issues (I asked because that's my job!).

A great hotel close to the action on ocean street but a block away. Sadly there is construction on the street so it's a little hectic. The hotel was very neat and up to date. We stayed three nights. The check I'm staff can vary. Our first night the guy was so cold and rude. Ok it was 2am thanks to flight delays but still. The valet parking spot is around the corner and sometimes the spots are full call the hotel and they'll send someone out. The door man David was so charming and helpful. The housekeeping staff needs some attention our rooms were not made up tip well after 2pm and it took over an hour to get an extra towel when we only had one on one of our rooms. We stayed one night in old side and two on new side. New side is more up to date. There are no views so don't plan on it. Overall a nice stay and I'd recommend this hotel. Just a note to hotel work on the housekeeping and have your front desk be a little more alert. We did mention the rude first night check in service and were told hey take care of us but I think they forgot.

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights to finish off our holiday after a cruise. Hotel staff were great and an added bonus was the free wifi. Pool area looked relaxing and noise free. Seating out front was a great place to have drink and watch the world go by. Great location and a short walk to Lincoln Road Mall. Would certainly stay again.

I stayed a there a couple of weeks ago and the hotel was great! the staff was very nice and corteous which made for a great stay! since I was there with grandparents and it was their first visit to the US as well as it was my girlfriend's birthday I wanted a nice place close to the beach. The rooms are a bit smaller than what I am used to but very typical for boutique hotels, the pool area is absolutely gorgeous and the overall decor of the hotel is great!
The hotel is just steps away from Ocean Dr (the part where you want to be close to anyways) but it doesn't get all the noise from that area since is a couple of streets back.

I will definetely return and recomend it!

We stayed at the hotel for 7 days. The hotel was renovated beautifully but the carpet had some odor. The hotel staff was wonderful, friendly and very helpful. The girls at the front desk were incredible especially Ersi. The room was cleaned but the bed was little small for two people.
I hope they will get rid of the smell and the beds will be little bigger and I will never change that hotel.
The pool was wonderful for my little girl and worked perfectly fine as a spa for me and my husband.

Our stay was pleasant initially but towards the end of our stay one of my rings went missing from our room. I left it on my bedside table, went to the beach for the day, when we returned it was no longer there. I told the front desk on 3 occasions, they said they would look out for it.
Since returning home I contacted the hotel again to tell them my ring went missing from my room, they said they would investigate. They got back to me saying there was no unauthorized access to the room, this did not in my opinion put the people with authorized access to my room in the clear. They also pointed out my ring should have been in the safe, leaving it out was at my own risk. I obviously assumed items left out in my locked room would be safe but I was incorrect.

So my advice, do not take anything expensive or of sentimental value to this hotel that does not fit in the safe (eg handbags, shoes, clothing) as there is a danger these items will be taken.
