Stayed here with my family-wife & 2 kids. This resort is amazing-the views, the service, the on site restaurant (The View)-I am not sure why the restaurant was not packed at more than breakfast time. Great food, super service & kids eat free! The view-corner table with ocean view & palm trees swaying a reality.
This resort is a bargain given that Trump International is just up the beach, the Bal Harbor shopping area is 3 miles south & Ferrari's, Bentleys, & Rolls Royce's are not uncommon to see everyday. Don't be put off by this, there is also a McDonalds, a Denny's, a grocery store & a Wallgreens all within walking distance.
This resort is dated & although the rooms have been refurbished with new furniture, televisions, comfortable beds & updated bathrooms-they are lived in. If you are expecting a totally up to date, spotless high end accomodations this resort will disappoint you. If you are looking for a great location at a bargain price in a high end beach resort area with an awesome pool for your family on the beach you will love it here like we did.
