“Great Location ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

The pool floor offers a great view and a perfect spot if you want to chill and relax. Ocean view rooms with a balcony is a perfect spot to enjoy the end of the day. The gym is well equipped and under good conditions. The staff is friendly and helpful. Will be back!

Nuvo clean and upgraded hotel near the center of town. It is close to shopping and has a nice view of the bay. Starbucks in the AM is 100 yards away. Large flat screen TV's and a nice room.
Very clean.

Room Tip: The best rooms view the bay. I would make the request.

I recently worked with, and stayed at the Sonesta Hotel in Coconut Grove, FL. My school had a reunion in Miami, and we chose the Sonesta Hotel. I enjoyed working with my Sonesta contact, Malena Orihuela, on setting up reunion particulars, including getting the goodie bags to our reunion members, getting maps and guides for the goodie bags, and setting up the dinner menu for a dinner event. Also, during our stay, the reunion gang spent a lot of time by the Sonesta pool (very nice, with a spectacular view of Coconut Grove harbor). The Sonesta pool employees were very courteous and accommodating, in particular, Alex Dubon. The rooms were quite comfortable, and the food and drinks were delicious. All in all, I enjoyed my stay at the Sonesta, and found the staff to be especially welcoming and helpful.

First time at the Sonesta Coconut Grove.
The location is an okay location. It's near the bay and close to shopping and restaurants. A little distant from gas stations or any grocery stores.
The view of the bay is a plus. It's breathtaking and relaxing. I did my morning readings on the balcony with the breeze blowing.
The restaurant is not as large as the pictures make it see. It's not a panoramic view. The food is good but not worth the prices they charge.
The kitchen is a nice size. Not equipped with enough utensils.
Cleanliness could be better. I found things like the dining seats having crumbs on them. Underneath the books on the coffee table had an old and used nail file. Otherwise, it was a clean room.
The bed was comfortable.
Both bathrooms were clean.
The staff responded quickly and are very helpful.
Overall, it was a good and relaxing stay.

I stayed in this beautiful hotel and loved it! It is perfect for a business trip or relaxing vacation. The hotel is across the street from the bay with outstanding views. I loved the surrounding town too. A perfect place for those who like to take a morning run!

My wife and I searched for a couple of days for hotels in South Florida. We finally decided on two in Coconut Grove, Miami. This was a business/vacation trip where I would be traveling solo. After reading many reviews of both, we decided on the Sonesta. A non-negotiable feature for me was a balcony with a water view. I was also looking for something that had a new and modern feel to it. Based on the reviews, Sonesta fit the bill.

Now, before making the reservation I called to verify that my room would have a balcony and water view. Well, on the morning I was supposed to leave I had a funny feeling, so I called to verify the room type. I was told that my room did not, in fact, have a balcony. So you can imagine how upset I was. However, after explaining how important this feature was and how disappointed I was that I had called to verify the room type and still had not received what I thought I was reserving the lady quickly provided me with an upgrade at no additional charge.

Upon arriving at the hotel, I was met by a very nice young gentleman of took care of my bags and vehicle registration. The check-in went smoothly. The lobby was elegant. The person who helped me take my bags to my room was friendly and efficient. The room was on the 19th floor and was awesome. Had a full kitchen, nice balcony with a great view. Everything was spotless. So far I was pretty impressed. Well, my stay just kept getting better after that. The staff at the pool and restaurant (Geraldine, Romy, Svetlane, and Alex were outstanding. Even the maintenance workers were super friendly. They really made me feel welcome and like they were there to serve me.

So, to wrap this up, I'd have to say that the staff, quality and level of service as well as the facilities themselves exceeded my expectations. I've traveled quite a bit and this was most definitely one of the best stays I've had. I highly recommend staying a the Sonesta Coconut Grove Miami if you have the opportunity.

My personal experience at the Sonesta Coconut Grove was positive. The staff is very attentive and friendly, my room was spacious, clean with a great view of Biscayne Bay. One particular encounter that stands out is the outstanding service and company my associates and I from the manager of the 8th floor restaurant and bar, John Avelino.
