I am quite surprised by others' negative reviews. For background, we were staying at Fisher Island when Ernesto came to town and hence were evacuated to the Doral. I was totally bummed but when we arrived at the Doral my expectations were so low that I was pleasantly surprised.
Our suite was very cheap (probably because we were there in hurricane season)--$127 versus $850 at Fisher Island. The suite was large, beautiful and well appointed with lovely views of the golf course. The bathrooms were totally modern and nice. They gave expensive soaps and shampoos. Our beds were king sized with goose down pillows and comforters.
It is true that the hotel has a dated shell but they have done a nice job to modernize it. Again, contrary to what I read on this site, my golf was absolutely cheap ($90 to play the white and $57 to play the red, gold and silver). This may be due to my august stay.
The food is clubhouse fare--nothing more or less. The neighborhood is boring suburban but the gardens and grounds are very nice. At is a good 30 minute drive to Miami beach which was a hassle. The spa and children's facilities were excellent. My children loved the kids' activities. Staff was uniformly excellent and friendly.
This is not a spectacular resort but it is a nice place for a golf and family vacation.
