This is not a 5 star hotel, more like a 4 star with a +.5 for the friendliness of the staff. The lobby was kind of ho hum, nothing spectacular. The room had a marble floor for the foyer, and bathroom, as well as granite counter tops. The bathroom had a broken hair dryer and a shower curtain and rod fall on my wife. The shower curtain was held by a friction of a expanding bar, that was no more than a rough grey pipe. The bath tub was cheap plastic. You kind of had a mix of a nice room in some areas, and Motel 6 in others. The toiletries were nice, as were the plush towels. The standard room was large and the beds and pillows were comfortable. You were provided with robes and slippers for use at the hotel. They have 2 pools, one of them has several waterfalls + 3 whirl pools, and a pool bar.At the beach they provided you with chairs, chair covers, and towels as part of your resort fee. The hotel would also provide complementary transportation to and from South Beach. If you have a car, it will cost you an additional $30 a day for valet service + tips.
