I stayed at The Gale for a long weekend last month.
Upon entering the hotel's reception, the decor immediately catches your eye. Although our room was small, it was very modern with all the amenities you would expect from a 4 *.
The staff were helpful and quick to respond to any questions we had. One evening the hotel staff unexpectedly turned up at our door with a glass a prosecco and chocolates - a very nice touch.
The hotel is in walking distance to south beach and a decent spread of restaurants. The reason I rate the hotel very good instead of excellent is because I was given an incorrect quote for my taxi fare to the airport by one of the staff; which meant I had to pay the driver $30 more upon reaching the airport - thankfully i had the cash or i'd have been stuck!
