We arrived at 1 p.m. By taxi from MIA. We were surprised that no one offered to take our luggage!! However, besides the noise factor (spring break week) we were quite pleased with this hotel. The staff was superb - beginning with Lucy who checked us in and recognized our Platinum status - to Kaira in the restaurant, who is a wonderful waitress ! We ate lunch and dinner in the hotel restaurant and were pleased with both meals. Prices were reasonable -at least to we New Yorkers!
Our room was spotless. We were on the fifth floor, with an "ocean view" thru the palm trees. We were pleased to receive two bottles of water and a small amenity basket, hand delivered by a maid. I have a pet leave about noisy a/c, and hate when they cycle on and off instead of constantly blowing air . This, however, was my only problem with the room. The pool was very chilly- however the adjoining property's pool was nice and warm, and didn't seem to mind the HI people there for a bit. There were plenty of towels available.
The workout room was small - one treadmill, one bike and a wt machine. Plenty of water and towels. They really could use an elliptical there, or even another treadmill.
The location is not to be beaten, and as we used points for this stay, neither could the price! We would not hesitate to use this hotel again, or recommend it to others. (Our usual hotel is choice per-cruise is at the IC Miami- but due to late booking and a huge festival in Miami we couldn't get that hotel)
