Left New England's "Polar Vortex" for 4 balmy days in Miami. Hotel staff were exceptionally cordial and helpful. We especially enjoyed the 4 different heated out door pools. The hotel has arrangements with an outfit that rents beach chairs and umbrellas. The staff of this beach rental outfit were friendly and very efficient. They have a play area equipped with great sand toys and hand raked area to ensure a clean area for the little ones.
Dinning in this area is extremely expensive. The Eden Roc's Beach Club Cabana offers high quality food at a reasonable price. My grand son's favorite was a gourmet grilled cheese sandwich with a fruit salad (blueberries, strawberries, pineapple, banana and cantaloupe) for only $8. Grilled Mahi Mahi was my favorite.
