Upon arrival, we were greated by smiles as SOON as we stepped out of our shuttle. The staff at Z Ocean was nothing short of professional AND just all around happy to be there. We were served glasses of champagne while we waited for our room to be ready (which took under 10 minutes) then escorted to our room. The view from our room was right over the pool, with huge windows - palm trees and nice soothing running water from the fountains at the pool below.
We ate a the restaurant on location (Front Porch Cafe) which was also great, fast and fresh. I requested sidewalk tables and sat enjoying my food while people watching. A MUST in South Beach!
Our concierge, Mickey REALLY knew his stuff. He made tons of recommendations, helped with our reservations and would stop and talk to us about happenings in the city. :)
Our bartenders, hooked us up when it came to underground music clubs (thanks Major!) and Phil was all in all a super cool guy (good luck with your race up in Las Vegas ;-) )
Rooms - Extremely clean, housekeeping was outstanding and we even had a BOSE stereo to jam out to while chilling in our room.
Pool - Great service and comfy chairs to lounge in
There was a daily resort fee but 150% worth the cost - the guys down by the beach HOOKED us up every day with chairs, umbrella, towels and front row view of the ocean. SUPER FUN!!
I would definately go back to this hotel and was sad to leave so soon!
FYI - the fact that the room was stocked with Aveda was an extra bonus. It's my favorite brand!!
