I have been to Miami before, however this trip was my first time staying right on South Beach. With that being said....the Shore Club set the bar pretty high! If you are not a fan of pretentious properties but want all of the same benefits those places have to offer.....then this is the Hotel for you. Amazing and VERY efficient staff.... CHECK! Perfect location....CHECK! Awesome pool party every weekend....CHECK! Restaurants that leave you wanting more..... lol CHECK!! My friends and I had dinner at Nobu one night and ate at Terrazza multiple times and i must say...we were never disappointed. The service on the entire property was top of the line, but if i had to pick, Radi (the Night Manager for Terrazza) was a standout!!! He went above and beyond to make sure we were treated like VIPs at all times! Besides his impeccable service at the hotel, he knew every nook and cranny of Miami and was never shy to help point us in the right direction depending on our needs at any given time. You just knew he was a master of his craft. I only have one complaint about this hotel. Everything is so amazing, you want to stay even longer... so we did! We all booked an extra night a few hours before we were due to fly back to NY. It was well worth it!!
