If you are a golfer and come to Doral to golf then this is the place for you. If you are staying here for ANYTHING else, move along. This is not the place for you. Let's discuss....
Parking - Horrible. There are two self parking lots and unless you are villa 8 or 9, are a long walk to your room. Seems this is done by design to really encourage you to valet. Which is also a long walk to your room. They have also raised self parking fees to $18 per day. Ouch.....
The Rooms - Not bad but honestly close to average. Décor is a little dated. Good space in them though and at least the balcony is functional. The showers can be dismissed as nothing more than a faucet leak. If you want a good shower, take your shampoo outside and wait for the next thunderstorm. That or the gold course sprinklers seem to provide a better shower experience. Also not as quiet as newer hotels.You can easily hear what guests in neighboring rooms are talking about that evening. The property really seems to like to use a lot of air fresheners in the cottage lobbies. You can literally smell cottage 6 about 50 feet before you even get to the door. Will knock you out when you actually enter.
The FEES - This place has turned into the king of un-fees. The mandatory $20 per day resort fee and the additional $18 per day parking fee + taxes was nearly 50% of the actual room rate. Absurd and a really slimy practice at those costs.
