A group of us went to Doral in May for a golf tournament. We each stayed in a villa and they were very spacious. There were four in our family so we had two rooms in two separate buildings. The rooms were huge and comfortable (we all compared) but agreed that the carpets needed to be replaced. It had a moldy smell each time you came in the room. I asked for a fridge and 10 min. later, it was brought in. The air conditioning needed to be looked at, and in 10 min., a maintenance person came and fixed it....just needed adjusting.
The restaurant downstairs was usually the only place our whole group (80 of us) hung out for breakfast and lunch and an occasional supper. The menu is simple and felt they needed something in between this restaurant and their upscale restaurant upstairs. There are many restaurants nearby and walkable but most of the people in our group did not rent a car so they were mostly stuck at the restaurant. While we (my family) ate out at a Cuban restaurant one night, a Japanese the next night and a Korean restaurant one night. On the last night, we hopped to So. Beach and had Joe's Stone Crabs which were out of this world! We always manage to make it to Joe's whenever we are in Miami.
Doral's golf is fantastic! Not easy, very tricky, manicured and maintained nicely. Blue monster is on the pricey side but well worth the experience. The staff at the golf course goes out of their way to make your golf experience a special one. All in all, worth the stay and will definitely return.
Doral's front desk is excellent too. Since we were a Marriott member, and my son worked for the Ritz Carlton, they comped us on the parking ($10 a day) and free internet in the room ($12.99 nt). That's a big saving staying there for a week. What more can we ask???
Doral's manager keeps up after the trip to ensure we had a good experience and apologized for the little inconveniences we had....like the air conditioner, etc. What? It was nothing! Anyway, thought it was such a nice gesture! Thank you, Doral, for giving us such a special time!
