Me and my partner stayed in the Habana Libre for 5 nights during the annual Winter Music Conference in Miami Beach. We truly enjoyed our stay there. The staff did everything they could to ensure we had a pleasant stay. And the cleaning staff was also excellent and did a really good job of cleaning our train wreck of a party room every morning.
The location, to me, is great. It's close enough to all the madness that is South Beach, but far enough so that when you come back at night you find yourself in a comparatively quiet area compared to South Beach. And the beach near Habana Libre is just as nice as South Beach and not nearly as crowded. And the beach near the hotel has a boardwalk which South Beach doesn't have. A really lovely boardwalk overlooking beautiful Miami Beach.
I will say though that the hotel is showing wear and tear. But they are in the process of renovating the entire property and renovations are scheduled to be completed by this fall. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite and it was perfect for us. Two nice flat screen televisions, a fold out couch, a dining table and a small kitchenette with all the dishes and pots and pans you could possibly need on a vacation. But the carpet in the rooms in a bit worn and the fabric on the sofa was also worn. The management acknowledged this and assured me that new carpeting and new sofas were part of the renovations. For the price we paid for a 1 bedroom suite, I feel we got a good deal. I don't think you could find comparable accomodations at the price we paid.
I will definitely return to this hotel. I love Miami Beach and I love the Habana Libre!
