“If You Love the Beach, This Is Your Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

My husband and I have stayed here several times pre-cruise. We love the fact that the beach is almost directly across the street from the beach. There is a nice bakery/deli right next door for a quick, reasonably-priced breakfast or lunch. The rates are fair and the rooms are clean and comfortable. I won't stay anywhere else in Miami but Circa 39.

This boutique hotel features cold AC, soft linens and tropical colors. The tile work in the bathroom was beautiful and my sandy feet appreciated the clean hardwood floors. This hotel is older but in a quaint art deco sort of way.The bar also served excellent mojitos and the pool was gorgeous. Right across the street from the beach, too. Would stay here again, anytime!

I have stayed at this wonderful hotel several times and it never disappoints. The staff are among the most helpful, especially Jorge who can be found in the very quaint, living room feeling Bar Area. The beach is an easy walk across the street, but because it is not a beachfront hotel, the rates are very reasonable. The rooms are wonderful with the great addition of ceiling fans, to make for a great nights sleep.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. We loved that the beach access was across the street. The room was clean, modern and had a super big comfy bed, best night sleep away from home. A sizable closet and a fridge for personal use. There is a little cafe/shop just next door for snacks, a liquor store across the street and a subway just a block down. The hotel is located just outside the hustle and bustle so either bring your walking shoes or hop the bus. They do have private parking in a lot parallel to pool side that you need to pay extra for.

Great 3 star hotel. The staff is very friendly and really wants to go out of their way to help with any question or need. Hotel is clean and the room is a good size. Good value for the money.
Note that if you are a light sleeper though to bring a sleep eye mask and ear plugs. There are no black out shades, only shutters on the windows. Personally, I need total darkness to sleep. In addition, the walls are very very thin. Traveling for work, I was in bed by midnight. The younger party people came in at 2am and then again at 4am and you can hear the laughing through the walls. The mattress is a little lumpy. I think it was 2 twins pushed together.
Also - there are no full length mirrors in the entire hotel. I asked at the front desk and she was about to pull one out of the back in the staff area but I told her not to worry. There is wall space in the rooms - I would recommend that full mirrors be added. As a female, this would actually prevent me from staying there again.
There are no umbrellas at the pool and there are beach chairs on the beach which is right across the street, but its $10 to rent an umbrella.
Coffee is in the rooms but no tea. I asked for tea in the restaurant and he gave me a cup for free which was great. Little refrigerators are in the rooms which is a nice to have as well.
Overall happy with my stay, just minor things I wish the hotel would fix. For me I just need a better nights sleep but for others those items may not matter. Price was great for the location.
