We stayed here for five nights last week in a ground-floor, one-bedroom unit and thought the room and the hotel overall were impeccable -- well-located, comfortable and immaculate, well worth the rate. We had a great vacation, and the hotel was a primary reason. I'd highly recommend staying here, and I have absolutely no connection to the management.
After reading some of the comments below, particularly the one by the numb-nuts Oleg, I was a little skeptical about my choice. I'm contributing this review to make it clear that the place couldn't have been nicer. Our unit was kept spotless, and housekeepers were in no way intrusive. The linens and towels were top-rate, for instance, and the furniture was plush and comfortable. It's obvious that they've worked hard at these kinds of comforts.
We enjoyed having coffee on the patio and watching tiny lizards scoot about. The beach was easily accessible, no more than a quarter-mile to the east. The hotel is situated next to a bridge that connects barrier islands, and it sounded as if it might be a hassle to get in and out, but it wasn't at all. The shops and restaurants in Bal Harbour and Surfside were varied, plentiful and convenient. The staff was extraordinarily accommodating.
It was relatively easy to get to other spots in Miami that we wanted to visit, but, at the same time, it felt as if the Quarzo was kind of out of the way -- not another beachside high-rise. As for the "smell" inside the hotel, it's eucalyptus-based, very pleasant, and didn't drift into our unit. The only drawback I can think of is that the housekeepers liked to turn the thermostat down, but we simply turned it back up. If that's the worst thing I can say about the place, that's pretty good.
