“Excellent Food....ripped of for a cocktail though!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

Went here for a lunch a few times during our 9 day stay in Miami and had the Italian Sandwich each time as enjoyed it very much. Was a great location on Ocean Drive and the food was reasonably priced and delicious. We came back a third time and were persuaded to have a cocktail each as was happy hour. There were no prices on the cocktails but we decided as we were told it was happy hour we would get the other one free anyway so we werent too concerned. When we got the bill we had been charged $70 for two cocktails - apparently we had been conned into thinking it was happy hour as it was not. Shame as this turned somewhere we had thought was a lovely place into a bit of a sham. Tip: always ask the price of drinks as there is a reason they dont advertise them.

Room Tip: Didnt stay as hotel, only ate and drank here.

We stayed 4 nights in appt 4b with our 2 teenage kids. PROS: loads of space, well equipped (sun hairs and umbrellas v handy as VERY expensive to rent on nearby SoBe), great views, in the heart of the iconic Art Deco area, good value for money considering the amount of space. Cons: decoration a little tired and several broken windows that were out of action, no decent parking nearby. Other than that this proved to be an excellent base to explore South Beach area and our kids loved it. No pool but the beach is just over the street - but be sure to take the chairs!!!

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have The View!!

The waiters not are the best option, the have an awful temperament.
The menu had a good options.
I liked so much.
The ilumination, the tables, make you feel in home.
They have a promo steaks for $14.99 + tax
It's a good option to take dinner

An absolute plethora of space looking out over the Miami beach coast and Ocean Drive. The rooms are VERY spacious, marble flooring throughout with a slick walnut dash trim all around the apartment.

The appliances were plentiful and very useful. We used the coffee pot everyday and cooked sugar cured bacon on the stone hob. large flat screen TV and the mother of all beds that I couldn't touch the side if I lay down each way. Our highlight being the dual sinks in the bath all decked out in lush marble with a built in wetroom. Everything you would need and more.

Highly recommended. I booked through Mr Mark Amery and he was also very helpful and his prices are the lowest from what I researched.

If you want to feel like a rockstar this is the place to look!

Stayed in the condos.. great space and location for the money. And the restaurant and lounge were really, really good. The staff was very attentive to us,and made sure that we were very well taken care of. Quite friendly for a South Beach place... and I've had my share of attitude from some of those places. Really fun place, to hang out on the weekend.:!

I just got back from a long weekend in South Beach. I stayed in 3C at the Carlyle. What a perfect location!!! It was steps to everything! It was about 2 blocks from Party Central so we could sleep when we needed to but close enough to get to everything. The Concierge Lillian was very friendly and helpful when we checked in. I had found 3C through VRBO and booked directly through Rita. The condo was a one bedroom with two bathrooms which was huge!!! We were two women and the extra space was perfect. The unit came with two beach chairs and beach towels which was great since we flew in from Maryland. The unit even had a hair dryer. I had looked into hotels but the rooms were so small that I was worried we wouldn't have enough room. So glad I went with the condo.
Across Ocean Drive was the park and then the ocean. The beach was beautiful and we spent every day enjoying it. On Sunday we had to check out at 11 but our flight wasn't until 8:20pm. We spent the day enjoying the pool at the Savoy Hotel on 5th and Ocean. You can get a day pass for $25 which was worth it. The two pools were great and it was nice to have a place to keep our luggage.

Room Tip: 3C was great!

Apartment 4A is astonishing! Three bedrooms, 3 baths, huge living room facing the sea. I stayed there with my wife and kids from April 2nd thru the 11th. It was magic! I was surprised at the amenities offered as it was appointed as well as our flat in Europe. And no surprises there, since I heard that the owners are European and use this apartment as their residency when they travel to the US. All you need to bring with you are your bathers since it is fully equipped. The location is exactly what you would expect by being in the middle of where everything is happening. Hundreds of bars and restaurants are within walking distance and all the shopping you can hope for is 4 blocks away on Lincoln Road. Amazing experience. Will do it again next year for sure
