We stayed at this property for three nights in January. We arrived early and went to see if we could check in. A woman (who had a manager name tag - I forget the name) wasn't that nice to us and accommodating. When we use Priceline to book hotels I find a lot of the time the front desk staff at any hotel treats us inferior to other guests - and this was the case. We had a few requests like being away from the elevator or the construction on one side of the building and she wasn't willing to help us out with that request. We opted to come back after 4pm and check in and we were able to get a front desk employee that helped us with a comfortable room. The room was very nice and had a wet bar, fridge and microwave. The balcony we had was clean and nice as well with a view of the bay and a small view of the ocean. The shower was really nice and comfortable and clean. The bed was comfortable and clean. We slept very well. The hotel was quiet which was a nice plus. One morning the hotel was evacuated at 7am and luckily we were awake and dressed.
The pool area was really nice, comfortable and clean. They have chairs along the bay which is a nice change. Within a few minutes I spotted a manatee swim by. The pool server told us it was rare. As a matter of fact, the morning of the evacuation we spotted another manatee swim by. The pool bartender apparently had the flu and was still working and serving drinks. We were disgusted by that.
Housekeeping was not the best. When we returned to the room after the fist day we had no towels and had to have some sent up. After the second day we had no toilet paper and had to have some of that sent up.
Overall we were pleased with the hotel. It's about a 20 minute drive North of Miami where we spent most of our time. We would stay here again if given the opportunity.
