This was a last-minute booking since our chosen hotel was having beach maintenance work done, which didn't seem ideal for a relaxing few days. So we paid the extra and arrived at SoBe. The fact that breakfast was included was quite a bonus since we had fond memories of those opulent American breakfast buffets!
The best thing you can say about our room is that it will make our cabin on the cruise we are taking, look spacious.There is nowhere to put our luggage, there isn't enough room the closet for our clothes, and we have to use the shower room (no bath) one at a time because it's too small for both of us !(and this in the nation of world leaders in obesity !)The air con unit was blasting out heat at 27'C when we arrived and no one has managed to fix it yet. And they don't have a restaurant ! Amazing! 5 stars and no restaurant, enquiring at reception, we were told it " Wasn't the Modern Thing ".1
Breakfast is 'included'...... well that's as maybe, but you go down to breakfast and you receive a printed menu with prices up to 40 dollars and they charge for anything other than basic continental, and all with plastic plates and cutlery. We'd have it in our room except there isn't enough space.
Conclusion: totally overrated,and overpriced at 372 dollars a day plus taxes.
