Wow what can I say! This was absolutely the best vacation ever at the Shore Club. My wife and I celebrated our 1 yr anniversary and stayed here the week of Sept 5.
Check in went well. We checked in earlier than expected and they upgraded us to an ocean front room which was nice.
The room was simple, bright, clean with concrete floors . Pretty much all white, crisp and clean bedroom. Nothing extravagant, but we appreciated the soft comfy bed and the beautiful view from our balcony .
Ken and Rio and Natalie, the concierges were outstanding, and went out of their way to help us.
Ken helped me with a suprise floral arrangenment for my wife, Rio with an awesome restaurant choice and Natalie with free passes to sobe clubs. They were fun and great to chat with for a bit.
The pool was clean, attendants at the pool were very attentive, checking in for drinks constantly.The music was eclectic and smooth. Towels availiable ,they layed them out for us. Ample chairs and space to chill and side areas to relax away from the crowd.
The beach was clean and the cabana dudes were helpful . It was raining on and off that day so we didnt stay long. you need shoes inside the water because of the rocks but the water was warm and turquoise.
THE SPA WAS AMAZING!
I cant say enough about Anna . Her spirit was so beautiful. Her soft tone and gentle spirit made my experience so wonderful. I spent an hour an half with Anna. Foot scrub, aromatherapy massage and scalp mint massage. OMG is all I can say! I left this spa feeling absolutuely amazing.(check Travelzoo for deals) There is no sauna, but if you want humidty.. just step outside.. lol
The location is great for walking around. We came on a Wed and had two quiet peaceful relaxing days before the weekend crowd came and that was awesome too. At night the lounges open and the music is pumping and the restaurants have that lounge feel. You can sit outside on the what fells like Moroccan themed couches and beds that are draped and lit by candle light. Very sexy feel, chic and Miami! There is ample security visible, never felt unsafe, us being two females alone in another city..but were New yorkers so we were cool....
We saw families with teen children here too. They were having a good time too.
Remember if you're from the states, it's not all inclusive obviously, you have to tip, they work hard. Prices are higher than back home and we're used to high NYC prices ; but thats expected. Its Miami. Enjoy, Live and Travel!
