“Excellent stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2011

Me and my wife have visited Miami before and wanted to return because we liked it so much. We arrived with my brother in law and we immediately liked the condo to a point it was spacious and all household items were available e.g. washing machine and tumble dryer, top of the ranger cooker, fridge, freezer etc.

We stayed right in the front of the hotel (3A) and could see the beach and ocean.

The only downside was unless you are a light sleeper, you will get awaken by the public walking below or customers eating/drinking at the restaurant. I had ear plugs so that was not a problem and my wife slept like a log.

Paul was excellent in arranging the condo for us from beginning to end and it was a shame we never got the chance to meet him.

We have already recommended this to my family and friends! We will return one day as well!

Ok so the other two reviews were reviews about the restaurant at this hotel!!! If you google The Carlyle South Beach, the pictures you see is what you get. The condos are privately owned so they are fully stocked and has a homely feel to the place. Check in and out was smooth. There is a security lock on the door that will only allow people that are staying there in with an electronic key. There is always a concierge on duty. If you are going to South Beach to do what most people do (drink) then the concierge will hold your room key at the desk so you will not loose it. If you loose a key there is a $200 charge.

BE WARNED!!!

This restaurant (like all on O Drive) tout on the street and offer a "20% discount" until the check arrives and then oops they forgot the discount once challenged they only give 20% on food and not drink it resulted in us and the table next to us in a 40 min argument with the manager.l...... plus the food is.... crap - stay away!!!!
