Needed a hotel for two nights near the University of Miami for graduation. The hotel gave us a reasonably priced option with some nice resort amenities. While nowhere near a beach, we enjoyed the nice walking trails, pool and hot tub before catching our flight home. The rooms and public areas were nice. There were a number of different types of iguanas, birds and even a bunny out on the trail near the pool. I think the fact that this is not a traditional resort goes in its favor, as there was no typical rat race to hold chaise lounges at the pool, like you sometimes see at actual resorts. The pool was large but not crowded and the temperature was comfortable. Every once in a while a plane would take off with a bit of noise, but the frequency was so intermittent so as to make it interesting and not annoying. Perhaps it was a lesser used runway.
I found the breakfast buffet good, with excellent fruit and baked goods. The only reason I did not give the hotel a 5 was that the parking system is a pain. There was a back up getting through the one gate at 10 PM the night of arrival. The ticket machine did not seem to be giving out tickets. Also, while the front desk did validate our room key, they did not tell us that only one of the keys worked. I sicker or some other system would have helped us keep track of which one to use to exit the gate.
Finally, we were given a 2 PM checkout extension. It would have been helpful to tell us that our key would stop working at 12 noon and to stop by the front desk to get it extended. This caused an extra trip to the room. These should be easy things to fix.
