We had the experience to spend nearly a week at Casa Casurina at spent the first night at the Signature Suite, 4 nights at Gianni's personal master bedroom "The Villa" and one night in Donnatella's room called the "Venus Suite". The staff could not have been more nice and I'm glad I ignored some of the negative reviews that have been posted. Being able to stay in Gianni's personal Master bedroom was really amazing considering he probably only lived there for about 3 years. All of the murals that he had designed are still on the walls including custom cabinetry that still looked brand new when it was constructed over 20 years ago. The signature suite is really amazing and has a very large living room and then a HUGE master bedroom with a very impressive Master Bath. It's located on the non-pool side which is much quieter. I would recommend this suite as it has nice views overlooking the ocean and around 1,500 square feet. Gianni's suite is around 1,100 square feet and doesn't have a living room to hang out in (that was converted to Gianni's lounge which is now a bar with a sushi restaurant). Just the historical aspect of staying in the room is well worth it. Probably the best suite at the hotel is Donnatell's room which is the Venus Suite. The room has a lot of light and overlooks the beach and ocean. All of the rooms overlook the famous pool area but be prepared to have music coming into the room until 11pm. There is also the Sushi restaurant which is located directly above the bed so some noise comes from there as well. If it wasn't for the noise that would be the suite I would recommend. We enjoyed eating at the hotel on 3 different occasions, 2 right by the pool and one in the dining room. The nice thing is that they give preference seating if you are staying at the hotel which is really nice. Probably the best part about staying there is being able to swim in one of the most famous pools in the country. We enjoyed laying by the pool which you can do until 4pm and then they allow you to enjoy it after midnight when everyone has left the dining room. I will always remember the experience of taking a nightly swim after midnight in a pool which I have always admired for the last 20 years. It was truly a one of a kind experience that I highly recommend everyone doing at least once. There are a total of 10 rooms at the hotel but pay the extra money and get one of the signatures suites or Gianna's Villas suite as it truly makes you enjoy the entire experience of the hotel.

We nearly backed out of staying because of the negative reviews, so glad we didn’t cancel! We had dinner at the villa a few years ago and wanted to stay a few nights. I had requested The Azure Suite but ended up with The Empire Suite and was not disappointed. I think all the rooms are over-the-top opulent and fun. The breakfast was excellent. We had dinner there both nights, it is a bit pricey but was delicious. The restaurant stays very busy. The best part is exploring the mansion and feeling like you have it to yourself. We were in the pool in the middle of the night and every morning. It isn’t heated but I found it refreshing. Most of the staff were great and went out of their way to make our stay special. I would suggest calling or emailing guest to let them know valet parking is currently a few blocks away. I knew from reading the reviews and called for directions ahead of time. The valet was wonderful and the villa sent someone for our bags. Location is unbeatable but we really didn’t want to leave the Villa. We were planning on this being a one-time stay but decided we will be back.

What can we say; we decided to stay at the Villa Casa Casuarina (former Versace Mansion) for our 20 year wedding anniversary since we had dinner reservations there already! What we found out, is that we have the most incredible gem in our back yard (we live in North Beach on Miami Beach for 51 years) and will be holding our business lunch meetings and out of town friends and family dinners there as regularly as possible not to mention as many date nights as we can fit in. We stayed in the Empire Suite which was over the top beautiful and spent the afternoon at the pool enjoying caviar and Champaign, thought about taking a walk down Ocean Drive and both said, "why, look where we are, lets jut stay and enjoy the ambiance of the property!" Took a nap (wink, wink) and came down for an absolutely amazing dinner (the filet with white truffles was one of the most tender, I've ever had and their wine list was one of the most reasonably priced on the beach! Our waiter Ilan was very knowledgeable and made the evening even better! The pool side dining area is one of the best environments in all Miami Dade County! The side bar just off the main lobby makes you feel like you are somewhere in Europe! The Sushi Bar on the third floor is a great stop for a night cap! We woke at 5:00 A.M. ran over to do the 6:00 A.M. Cross Fit on Alton Road and 9th Street and walked back straight east on 11th street for a wonderful breakfast (included with the stay) and enjoyed a relaxing morning at the property. We had a special request that we felt was a 50/50 shot and Janina, the Operations Manager made it happen; we will continue telling everyone we know about our PERFECT experience in the best GEM on Miami Beach (in Miami Dade County) and truly look forward to our next moments on the property, including bringing our 13 and 9 year old daughters for a stay! Cheers!

This was a wonderful experience. The ambiance was great, the mansion is very beautiful and the food was excellent. The service was also very good, and my server was very attentive. All in all I had a great time at this restaurant.

Incredible hotel. Beautiful rooms. Great location. Amazing staff. Amazing bars and restaurants. Free breakfast. Gorgeous pool. Awesome spa next door at their affiliated property (The Victor). I don't think you can find better.
