I couldn't have been happier with the Boulan South Beach. We prefer to stay in "Condo" style hotels with full kitchens and a washer/dryer in every room. The rooms were large, new, and very nicely decorated. Our room had a very nice view up Collins Ave. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed.
We arrived early in the morning, well before check in, and they secured our luggage, provided a place to change and gave us access to the pool. We went and ate, checked out the area, and hung out at the pool. When our room was ready they called us on our cell phone and let us know we could check-in.
The beach is a four minute walk away, and the Boulan has reserved umbrellas and loungers on the beach. Lincoln Road Mall is an easy walk as are the many restaurants on Collins Ave. The heart of Ocean Blvd is a little farther. There is a bus, The SouthBeach Local, which stops right outside the Boulan and makes loops of the south beach area. It's 25 cents to ride and is the easiest way to get to Ocean Blvd.
As I said, we prefer to stay in condos with kitchens and in-room laundry. We pack less, and at night, when we go to bed, we just throw our clothes in the washer. There is a Walgreens just a block or two away to get any last minute items.
The Boulan is adding a restaurant in the future, though for the time being there is no bar or restaurant onsite.
Overall it was great, we will stay there again in the future.
