“Wonderful place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Sun Harbour Boutique Hotel is really clean and I and my wife loved the atmosphere. The suite feels like home with a nice bedroom, living room and a small kitchen with everything you need.The beach is just across the street and you can take an umbrella, chairs or towels from the hotel to the beach. Luis who is the manager at the hotel is very friendly and always ready to help.We also had the best espresso coffee at the hotel.Also the location is very good because right behind the hotel you can find anything you need like good restaurants,stores,banks,cafes and many more interesting places.There is a nice outdoor pool for lots of fun as well.
We are very happy for staying at such a nice hotel!

The hotel is really great. It's close to a busy street but there is no noise from the street neither in the room nor in the pool. The rooms and pool are clean and the staff is very nice and helpful. The pool with jaccuzy is heated so even if you can't swim in the ocean, you can relax in the pool. The rooms are big enough for 4 adults, we were 3 adults in a one bedroom suite. In the room is fully equipped kitchen with fridge, owen, and dishwasher.

Room Tip: nr. 11 or 18 are quite and big

Picked this hotel based on reviews and TA and I am happy I did. Spent 3 nights in this hotel recently.

Rooms (2 bed suite) was very clean and spacious. The pool is lovely with a great seating area - like an oasis just off the main street. Good facilities in the kitchen and bathrooms.
The area itself is quite residential, not too many restaurants or bars. However, much better value than South Beach.

Found the staff helpful, we were a group of 4 adults, however 2 more family members came down to visit us as a surprise. We thought this might be an issue (some places might make you pay for another room) but we were allowed to have them stay with us on the pull out sofa bed at no extra cost which was great.

Not sure I would return - but that is nothing to do with the hotel, I wouldn't probably choose a different area if I was returning.
Would 100% recommend this hotel.

Just spent 9 nights here and I will be back. I travel on Business and have stayed in the more expensive hotels nearby - but never again – I have found the place I will come back to. What can I say – beach across the road, surfside restaurants just round the corner. Comfortable quiet room, great staff – perfect in every way.

Room Tip: think you will struggle to find a bad one!

I have stayed at several of the larger hotels in the North Miami area. This the ONLY boutique size hotel/villa in the area. For years I have tried to secure a room here but they were always sold out whenever I was going there. I understand why. Bal Harbor is a pricey area. This place has the absolute best rates. Trust me!

While I did not feel the interior warranted over $350 per night, that thought was quickly dismissed by the exceptional customer service, peaceful stay and local area. This is more of a bed and breakfast (without the breakfast, but they do offer coffee) Luis and Vanesa are very accommodating, they take the time to give you a full tour of the property, let you know what is around the local area. If you want to feel glamorous, pampered and spend an arm and a leg, go to the St. Regis, if you want to feel like you're home away from home.. stay here. This is the best place I have stayed at in the Bal Harbor area and my new place when visiting North Miami. Absolutely my first choice.

After extensive research decided not to stay in Miami Beach South because of a perceived lack of value for money, external noise and cost of car parking

Sun Harbour chosen because of its good reviews, closeness of restaurants and on-site car parking and proximity to public transport to take us downtown.

Sun Harbour was not what or where I imagined in a very good way - yippee

We stayed in room 16 (out of 19) for 2 nights during October 2013. It was an upstairs, corner room with a large sitting area with a flat screen TV, dining table with 4 chairs plus a small but fully equipped kitchen with fridge + freezer hot plate microwave dishwasher plus crockery glasses and cutlery. There was a compact bathroom with a well controlled over bath shower plus fluffy towels. The bedroom included a large walk-in closet with safe, a comfy king sized bed plus side tables and large flat screen TV. Everything in working order and modern - excellent so far

The hotel is shaped like a horseshoe around a heated pool and sitting area.

The hotel fronts a busy road - Collins Avenue. The location didn't create any problems as all the rooms are soundproofed so external noise is not a problem. Combined with comfy beds and good curtaining meant we slept well

Parking is either in front of the Hotel or under cover at the rear of the hotel

In terms of location, the hotel is one block from beach with chairs and brollies supplied.

A block behind the hotel is Harding Avenue with shops and restaurants. But these pale into comparison with the nearby Bel Harbor shopping centre which is like being in London Paris Milan with top named brands - Stella Alexander Versace De Beer Jimmy Armani Caroline Prada and many more that are beyond me. This is the place for the beautiful people with lots of $$$$ with an expensive taste in cars.

Restaurants are still affordable and we ate there twice - Japanese (scallops and chicken recommended) and Italian

The bus downtown is $2.50 with a regular timetable and stops close to the Sun Harbour. The journey on the 125 took about 40 minutes

Money saved on the hotel went towards to some excellent meals and we still had an excellent hotel which is one of the best we have stayed - makes sense doesn't it????? - thank you Sun Harbour you deserve to succeed

Room Tip: The rooms away from the main road are probably the quietest, though we noted no noise in either loca...
