We just came back from an outstanding stay at the Villa Italia Hotel. The front desk manager Carl is one of the best in the industry. He is extremely knowledgeble on the south beach area, where to go, what to do and when. This hotel is perfect for couples looking for a quiet place to stay, just outside the Ocean Drive craziness, but without the noise and headaches. Party animals go elsewhere...this hotel is one best kept secret and will hopefully stay that way. Carl and his friendly staff run a first-rate hotel operation - all for an excellent value. Rooms are very clean, well stocked and come with a 42in Samsung TV's and great channel line-up. Hotel is in a great location, safe, just south of the Ocean Drive area, but within easy walking distance of everything, including the Miami Inlet/Harbor area, where you can go watch the cruise ships head out on the weekends.
For couples, must do's are Happy Hour or dinner at Smith & Wollensky's, Joe's Stonecrab (A must do) and a walk down to Monty's for Hap Hour, overlooking the Miami Yachtclub. We saw some of the largest yacht's in the world, including the Aviva (#80 on the top 100 largest yacht's!).
They serve a very nice lite breakfast every morning. outdoor tables. All rooms and front gate have easy-swipe key cards for easy entrance. We stayed in the hotel, room was a bit smaller than I expected, but no biggie at all. I am sure the house is even better!
Great place to stay for quiet couples looking to enjoy SoBe!
