“Romantic Weekend Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2010

From the time we checked in with Brian we knew we were in the right place. What a romantic getaway destination. The resturant is amazing. JP provided great service. The wine list is top rated. We were upgraded to a corner suite and it was magnificent.
We will be back again. This is a couples paradise.

I recently traveled with some friends to Grove Isle. We were told this hotel was the best of the best and it was. The wonderful service not only started once you stepped foot on the island but as you left to go home. The restaurant and food was absolutely delicious and gorgeous. The staff was helpful in every way possible, including giving us tips of places to visit with directions of course. I could not even begin to explain how much we enjoyed this trip. I highly encourage everyone and anyone to visit and stay at this hotel.

The new renovations at Grove Isle Resort are amazing! We got married in April 2010 (65ppl) and everyone who attended and/or stayed at the Resort were blown away by the food, views, location and especially the new staff/service. This little hidden gem is Miami's best spot for a secluded outdoor wedding that is away from it all, but still right in the middle of everything you go to Miami for. While I would love to name each and every staff member that shined, it would take too long. Starting from the time you arrive at valet, to the day you check out the GM should be proud of the entire staff.

I took a friend of mine to celebrate a milestone birthday-a girls spa weekend. The special pricing they had for the summer was exceptional. Check-in was a breeze and they were able to accomodate our early arrival. Spa services were exquisite. The rooms are spacious and the views sublime. The staff couldn't have been more attentive. The robes that are provided in the spa and the room are getting a little "tired". We didn't have dinner at the restaurant on site-but breakfast was typical resort fare. Having read previous reviews regarding the bill I was on guard-and there were some discrepencies. They were unable to correct them at check-out but within 2 days things were straightened out. I would return to this hotel without hesitation.

My best friend and I recently took a weekender to this hotel. Upon arrival, gate guard looked at us like we were lost. My friend and I are 24 and 25--so considering most guests are well over 30, we didn't look like we were in the right place.

Once at the front of the hotel the valet guys were SUPER friendly and very welcoming. The service stopped there. Once inside, I met "Christina" at the front desk. My friend and I were in jeans and flip flops in a hotel where people are totally dressed up all the time.

She gave us terrible looks and an accompanying attitude. "Yes?" she said to us. I told her we had reservations, she asked for a card, then gave us the room key and told us where the room was. That's it.

For the price we paid a night, you'd expect a better attitude.

Restaurant staff was super friendly--housekeeping, exceptional. It's the front desk people who looked down at us as if we didn't belong to some exclusive club bc we walked around in casual clothes--despite the fact that we spend $800 on service and food alone.

--WATCH OUT: the hotel automatically adds 20% gratuity to EVERYTHING already.

All in all, nice place...but if you don't "look" the part....they'll treat you like it.

Grove Isle is beautifully situated on Biscayne Bay and there probably isn't a bad room in the hotel. The Summer pricing package made the rooms a great value, but that is where the value stops. The resort has Ritz Carlton pricing, but doesn't follow through w/the corresponding level of quality and service.
It really is a wonderful place to get away, but being an island there is no ability to go elsewhere for food and beverage (without driving/traffic/parking/etc) so one is stuck w/resort pricing on everything. The food is good, but not outstanding. And the service, while friendly, is nothing better than one would find at a holiday inn.
The Spa.......Again expensive w/out the outstanding quality. Ordinary facial, great massage. Again, nothing extraordinary except the premium pricing. Even a bit noisy
for a spa
One final thing to be aware of. The resort shares Grove Isle w/several high rise condo buildings that, while beautifully situated on the Bay, are rather ugly 1970 era bunkers.
Finally, you would be hard pressed to find a more beautiful spot to dine, both inside and out.

I was planning a surprise for my mother and made reservations for a massage followed by brunch.
Upon arrival I was informed that I did not have a reservation. My credit card information was most certainly there in the computer, but the employee that I spoke with never booked the reservation. I don't know where the manager was on this holiday, but we heard nothing during the two hour wait we had before we could be seated for brunch.
While we ere eating, the manager (who could not be bothered to speak to us directly) sent a girl out to let us know they could "fit her in" after lunch.
We declined since we had somewhere else to go and told the girl that he had all of our contact information and to please have him contact us.
I have heard nothing from him.
Also, don't bother with the brunch. For the same exact price, the Biltmore is one thousand times better in every respect.
