‘You cannot dream of better place than Deco Walk’. This is what locals and tourists would tell me about that hostel before staying there. I was already visiting a friend in Downtown Miami when I decided to be closer to that sparkling Miami Beach fun atmosphere. Deco Walk helped me being in the middle of it. I write about travels for different publications and when it comes to get the best traveling tips, I always turn myself into the Indiana Jones of holidays. So before getting to Deco I conducted my survey and many people all agreed on my first statement.
As I took the elevator to reach the lobby, I entered a beautifully designed lounge with leather contemporary sofas placed alongside a long window offering a superb view on the most famous drive of Miami. The high end plasma hung on the wall proved that Deco walk was also about déco. Those vacationers chillaxing on those sofas seemed like buddies hanging out at a friend’s living room, who had supa cool interior design’s tastes. I could hear laughters in the background. Holiday mates were actually happy here. I didn’t imagine that it was only the beginning of happiness. As I approached the front desk person Jon who welcomed me with a huge smile. Halima, his colleague standing by his side, was the same reflection of Jon; another happy smile. C’est magnifique all these super friendly people!
The dorm’s bedspace’s price was very descent for what I’ve yet seen of the hostel. Some had cooked their own food and came to seat at the lounge bar table. Happy as always. I almost asked someone to pinch me just to see if I was not dreaming because this place was just too good to be true but Déco was real. Even the boss was very warm, helpful and hospitable. He definitely got the know-how to make us feel comfortable.
I finally checked in and as soon as I stepped in my room, I made new friends right away and we went to a pool party, da kinda of party you see in music videos. I also heard that you could stay in mixed dorms if you wanted. Most of those ‘mixed’ dorm mates would end up friends going to the beach, parties or restaurants all together. Déco Walk is the kind of place you make unforgettable happy memories with old and new friends. After my day spent in that music video, we decided to discover the rooftop for the free night BBQ party. Its design was the perfected version of the lounge with a bar added to it, around which the holiday mates and party promoters were sipping a drink and sharing party tips.
Few happy memories and a night after/away, some staff came in my room to clean it up with the same attention of trouver une image sympa. I had slept enough to see them come. I woke up at 2pm. Hey, have I told you that when I checked in, I asked Jon to give me the quietest room for a grandma like me? lol. Well, I had to catch up on sleep, and I had planned a huge sleeping program between the parties, the beach, the bicycle riding and the eating outs. I called myself a grandma but if Jon knew I had my first Jacuzzi party on the rooftop… If you want to know more about it, you can always follow me on twitter #samiramesbahi, because if Jon gets to know, he’d never give me my ‘grandma room’ back in case I return to Deco Walk, and I’ll definitely do.
