Recently we stayed at the HGVC South Beach and enjoyed every minute. First of all, many reviewers acknowledge the wonderful staff. It is all true and we want to especially thank Orlando, Luis and Alex. Our 1 bedroom was great. Yes, it was a little smaller than some standard one bedrooms but this is in a beautiful art deco district. And......who stays in their room, when you are in beautiful South Beach. We found the beds to be very comfortable and the room was in great shape and very clean.
The weekend nights were very different from week nights, in the area. The action is non-stop on the weekend. People of all ages, all night. To go along with that, the restaurants, shops and clubs are open late. A bit quieter during the week.
The Hilton has a lovely terrace on the 4th floor, with comfortable couches, a hot tub, and a beautiful view of the beach. A short walk to the beach through a small park, across the street from the hotel. One thing to think about...the hotel does not have beach chairs/umbrellas. There is a separate, unassociated business which rents them. It is quite expensive, in my opinion. $51 a day for 2 comfortable lounge chairs and umbrella. We love the beach and will work something else out next time and yes there will definitely be a next time!!!
