It's been over a year since my husband and I have been able to get away to Miami. As always, we stayed at our favorite hotel and home away from home, the Shore Club. Even though it had been a while since our last stay, my husband and I were immediately reminded of why we always come back to this special property. The lobby is airy with a clean scent of lemongrass (?) and simply decorated with comfortable couches and billowy, sheer white curtains...I couldn't help but feel relaxed as soon as I arrived. At check in, we were greeted by the warm smile of Jennifer Espinoza, who was extremely friendly and helpful. Since we arrived hours before scheduled check in, we were able to store our bags and relax by the pool until our room was ready. The pool area is surrounded by beautiful greenery and and comfortable lounge chairs, couches and day beds. As soon as my husband and I stepped into the pool area, we were warmly greeted by Henry and Ricky, who set us up at our favorite spot by the pool...How they remember which chairs we like every time is beyond me! Our stay at the Shore Club was for only two days and each day was spent by the pool. The poolside menu since our last visit had changed, but I loved everything that they offered...there were healthy options for those watching their waistline and not so healthy options for those with a carefree diet. The food and drinks by the pool were well presented and so tasty, and the service we received from Sara and George was excellent! Both of them were very attentive, friendly and respectful.
During this stay, we had a room with the most gorgeous ocean view that we could enjoy from our balcony. Our room was clean and the decor, like most of the hotel, is minimalist, but relaxing and comfortable. Their beds are probably one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in and I look forward to sleeping in them with each visit.
As an avid traveller, I have stayed in many hotels and resorts. The Shore Club is one of the best and by far my favorite in South Beach. This beachfront property is in a great location (close to great shopping and restaurants) and has that cool SoBe vibe. But I truly believe that what makes the Shore Club such a remarkable hotel is the staff, how they treat their guests and the service they give.

Oh darling, we love you and your husband so much!! You are such a sweetheart for posting this fabulous review about how we are your home away from home. That makes us feel so special... Jennifer Espinoza is the most amazing Front Desk Manager with the greatest smile. Our pool team, especially Ricky, Henry, Sara, and George are all superstars!! Thank you for being one of our favorite hotel guests.... You both are jewels!
