“"Good food, service and ballroom but dated rooms"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

We held our 40th H.S. reunion this weekend and the organizing committee did a great job! They got the ballroom beautifully decorated for our special night and the hotel staff were also terrific. Even at the registration reception there was a nice bar as well as really tasty hors d'oeuvres for the hour we mingled among old friends before being seated inside. The dinner buffet was also very good with plenty of food available. The servers were very attentive for things like water or coffee. My main beef with this place is the rooms look like they were last renovated when Don Shula still coached the Dolphins, or maybe even before that, LOL. They are quite worn down and overdue for a big upgrade. The beds are cramped and mattresses tired. My mattress pad kept bunching up under the sheets. The shower was weak and the handle very difficult to operate and turn off. They also have a small thatched roof near the pool for tiki type gatherings but it has no fixed bar. There were also no chairs so we had to take some from the pool area. The resort does have great ample parking and it's easy to park right near your room. All in all, it was a good deal, a decent breakfast buffet was included, for the room rate given our group. But I wouldn't stay there and pay their normal rates, there are too many other places that Shula's Resort can't compete with.

Room Tip: They're all pretty old rooms, I guess it makes little difference.

The rooms were very up to date and reflected the local Miami atmosphere and lifestyle. The lobby area and restaurant could have used an update since it felt like I was in a 70's or 80's movie. The hotel staff was very courteous and went out of their way to assist with any problems. The restaurant was also excellent. Breakfast was enjoyable and dinner was outstanding.

It looks great – especially the courtyard” the pool area is very nice, also the little ponds, fountains and everywhere little statues reminding you of football. The pool needed a little more attention paid to it, as it was getting dirty.The staff was very friendly. Overall the location is not the greatest, the main street near it with some stores and a few restaurants around the corner is all you have – unless you count the few cows close by in the middle of a town. If you like to walk around a nice neighbourhood with nice ponds or lakes, there is not a whole lot to do in the area.

We came to dinner and everything was wonderful. Dinner, drinks and dessert. All great. The service was on point and the general manager came around to make sure we had a great experience. Thanks Bill Wilson. I will be back here again. I enjoyed the crowd. Nice people. Nice place.

Seems a bit outdated, but very clean and receiving touches of modernization here and there. Staff was very friendly and professional. Extensive fitness center for guests across the street. Walk out the side door of the hotel to a touristy Main Street, filled with a variety of restaurants and shops all within steps of the hotel. Shula's Steak House 2 is located within the hotel. Bed was very good but AC unit was loud. HDTV in room. No free breakfast. Free make your own coffee in the room.

I stayed here because of a conference we had at the same place, nevertheless I found it expensive for what it has to offer. It doesn't worth it considering that there's no atrractions around or anyplace close to go by. Although employees are very nice, and the restorant has a good service. Breakfast buffet is just average.

We have stayed at this hotel many times with family and just my husband and I. We enjoyed the newly renovated wood floors, lighting and a/c noise what improvement. The staff are professional and very friendly. We stay at least twice a year! Location is excellent, great food, have to try the buffett, great. You have shops, movies, just amazing!
