“Nice hotel but don't eat here stayed 21/2/13 3 nights pre cruise”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Although this hotel is nice clean and tidy the food is very average except breakfast which overpriced was nice with a good selection we ordered food twice in the restaurant and twice the fries came out cold despite the waitresses being told that we had cold fries the night before This hotel is a $10 taxi ride to good food in south beach beds were very big and comfy bar area is small and overpriced $6 for a can of beer Reception staff very friendly and helpful. those who say it's dated are right but you have never been to a Spanish hotel There is nothing around the hotel except the beach which is clean so any shops or food you need to go to south beach good 1 hour walk or taxi as above

Room Tip: Stay closer to south beach

This is my third stay here in that the location for me works well. However, it will be my last stay. The room is outdated, the tv small and old. The bathroom is small as well. Pool area is plain, and the outdoor restaurant is like a "greasy spoon". The Fountainbleau which is a mile south is far superior and the difference in price is not that drastic. The staff is nice and eager to please.

The hotel was very nice and clean. Gorgeous views of the ocean from our room (#1403). Stayed there with my husband and 3 kids after a cruise. They allowed us to check in early, which was great. There was a draft coming in from our window, which was old and rickety, so I wouldn't let the kids stand near it. We called for a late check out, but they didn't tell us we had to get another key, so they deactivated our key and we were stranded on the beach until someone came along and opened the gate for us. Then we went to our room and had to go back to the lobby for the key, slight hassle, but took about 1/2 an hour for all of this and quite inconvenient - we would have been in trouble if we were crunched for time. Housekeeping came to our door 3 times asking if we were checking out (including the day we checked in), and once by a mistake. Annoying, but not horrible. We couldn't find an inexpensive meal anywhere near the hotel, so we ate in the restaurant and no matter what we ordered, an 18 percent tip was tacked on, but the service was fine, so there was no bother there. It was nice that it was on the beach, the pool was warm and nice, but it was far from any type of attraction and with the Miami traffic, it was a hassle driving anywhere. They give you the price and then tack on a resort fee. They overcharge for everything, but overall, it was a good experience, except for the few hassles I mentioned. I think it would be better for couples seeking a get away.

Room Tip: 1403 had floor to ceiling window overlooking pool and ocean. Beautiful, but windows should be upgra...

We have stayed in this hotel many times, as it is conveniently located to relatives' apartments. We have stayed in other places nearby, but because of the boat show over Presidents Weekend, the rates were so high in other places (here too! $340 per night), we stayed here.
The hotel is dated and desparately needs a complete renovation.
Here is what was terrible:
hot water in the shower was iffy. Water pressure was awful. Linens and bedding worn and just barely adequate. Walls are thin and we heard our neighbors just having regular conversation - no yelling or anything, and we still heard them.
Here is what was just poor: worn carpets, worn bathroom.
Here is what was really OK: location is great, rooms are relatively large, so you can spread out all your stuff, and this time I found the maid service really thorough - shockingly! The room was very very clean. Towels were new and fluffy.
also - we had on ocean front room with large windows and bright views - that was wonderful.
Overall - it is just barely acceptable. If you must stay there because it is convenient, then do so - but understand what you are getting.

Hotel stuck in 80"s. Lobby is small. Check in room not ready they would call when ready. Never called. Room is large no hidef tv and the sceen is small. So many kids I thought I was at Disney. Front desk Staff and concierge seem confused. Happy hour at bar was eliminated with out warning because of boat show. Yet sign still up. So I walked next door to another hotel which had happy hour. The restaurant tacks on a 18 percent tip so not very noticed. The food is good portions small. Beer is $6.00. The pool is rusted in spots. Free water bubbler in gym. If you can rent a decobike just south of hotel and cruise south on Collins. The desk did not know the cost, but its cheap. I would stay next door at grand beach hotel. The sun is hidden by building after 4 pm at the pool. There is no hot tub. Closet space large. No explanation has to why the snack bar is locked. Lunch at the pool side bar was great.

Again I am going to reiterate all of the other reviews on here. The hotel was extremely dated and paint was indeed peeling off the walls and the carpet was stained and beginning to raise in places. Something I would not have expected due to the high prices within the hotel itself and how much it cost to stay there!

Some of the staff were helpful, however some of them were very VERY rude. We asked a number of times to have the service charge taken off (as I do not agree with 18% being added to my bill when I had only walked to the pool bar and ordered a drink. There was practically no service included what so ever!

The hotel is in a fabulous location for the beach. However the pool only got sun until early afternoon.

The hotel is not in a very good location and you need to catch a bus to go to the areas where you can actucally find some restaurants!

All in all I think the cons really outweigh the pro's for this hotel.

Room: small
Decor: poor and dated
Bathroom: tiny
location of the hotel to beach: brilliant
location of the hotel to ammenities: poor
staff: average

overall I feel this hotel is well below average and will not be returning.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel.
