We stayed here for 2 nights to attend a wedding nearby. This is a GORGEOUS spot...it would be almost impossible to give this under 4 stars based on the location alone! Sunny Isles Beach is a great combination of location and convenience. There are lots of pluses to this hotel but it will cost you!
+ exceptional service and courteous staff
+ top notch pool and restaurant bars
+ nicely appointed rooms (suite has a nicely sized kitchen that will save you a fortune)
However to be top-notch
+ wow $10 for a beer!
+ yikes $30 resort fee
+ although the staff works hard to get you set up on the beach, you are SQUEEZED in, and they don't do much to keep the place clean as the day wears on. On top of that, although there is service on the beach, it does take some work to get her attention.
+ a perplexing parking setup. You'll see.
All in all it was worth the big price tag.
