December 23, 2012 to Jan 3, 2013 marked our 4th visit here and it only gets better!
We knew already that everything in this hotel was fabulous but since our summer trip they have made things even better, including bathroom scales in the room which, at this period of the year, helped me to only gain a "few" pounds!
The staff are unbelievably friendly, courteous, and helpful; nothing fazes them and they figure out just about anything.
A few mentions here;
Sonia, Oscar, Galina, and Mary in the club lounge - we love you guys;
Christian at reception - always recognizes us as soon as we enter the hotel (even after 6 months and countless faces)! And makes you feel like you just came home;
The great housekeeping staff who kept our room spotless;
All the super-friendly staff at Area 31 but in particular the wonderful, happy, smiling, efficient, beautiful Melina who must be an employee-from-heaven - start your day with Area 31's great breakfasts & Melina and nothing can go wrong the rest of the day;
All the valet-parking team who, in spite of an unbelievably busy holiday period attending to what must be "la creme" of Miami, shuttled our car in and out every day with a smile!;
...and last but not least, Jacqueline, who made sure we felt like royalty (although I am still trying to burn off the extra pounds after the chocolate-covered strawberries & champagne she snook into our room)!
Thank you all, you are without doubt, and from our experiences around the world, the best hotel team we've ever experienced.
If you're thinking of going to Miami, don't even bother looking elsewhere, this is the hotel from heaven - just for you.
We will be back at least twice in 2013, and for sure will do the holiday period with you again because it was absolutely awesome! (...and The Heat won both the games we went to!)
