Our stay at Eden Roc was amazing! When we first arrived, we were greeted by the doormen. The desk attendant was extremely nice and she even let us choose what floor we wanted to stay on. She suggested a high floor because the views were amazing so thats what we chose!
We had a late flight so we checked in around twelve midnight (they will hold your reservation till 4am). Our room was stunning! We loved the long hallway that leads to the bedroom. The shower and jetted tub were so nice, especially the view of the ocean while bathing. The rooms are right there on the ocean so you can leave your floor to ceiling sliding doors open for sounds of relaxing waves to help put you to sleep. When you awake, the view of the ocean from your bed is definitely a treat.
The lobby bar is a nice circular bar with plenty of decorative unique seating all around.
The Cabana Beach Club bar was also nice. We had most of our meals there. One of the waitresses, Hannah, was very kind. We said we wanted to split a meal and she split the meal for us and gave us extra so we each had enough. They have really good Happy Hour specials as well. The pools were amazing! The view from the pool grounds to the beach was stunning! Unfortunately, we did not get to check out the italian restaurant Gia, but I am sure it is just as nice as the other dining options inside the hotel. Both Thursday and Friday nights, we ordered room service and we ordered the buffalo wings and they were oh so good! For 18 dollars they are so worth it and there are not that many restaurants near the hotel that are open at 4am.
South Beach is about 10 dollars away, give or take, depending on how your taxi cab driver drives. It is definitely worth staying at this resort and traveling to South Beach when need be. The resort has taxis waiting for you and whenever you are ready to ride, let the doorman know and they will signal the taxi for you; its actually quite impressive :) The resort is also next door to Fountainbleau Resort where you can walk about 3 minutes to have drinks, dine, party, or play and that is a plus!
All in all, this was my favorite stay in Miami. I have been 2 other times this year and the stay at Eden Roc has helped this trip top the rest! I look forward to staying at the Eden Roc again and cannot wait to go back!
