“Highlight-A Partial Beach View!”
Reviewed January 22, 2012

Our first trip to Miami included a 5 night stay at this hotel. The word "spa" gives the impression of more luxury than this property affords. It was clean. We did have a nice view of both the bay, and a small view of the ocean and that was great. On the lacking end- they short sheet the beds so that they don't use fitted sheets and therefore the bottom sheet doesn't go to the end of the mattress. If you are tall, as we are, your feet end up on a bare mattress. The pool (compared to neighboring hotels) is very minamalist; a few pieces of the gym equipment weren't working and the restaurant in the hotel is not worth trying. In the bar however, you can have the best mojito ever, but be prepared to wait awhile for it. It's worth waiting for. The only place you can walk to for restaurants are other hotels. It is far away from any place that you can explore on foot. However, if you take a small walk on the beach you can pick up a great boardwalk where you can walk behind many of the hotels you wish you had stayed at! Rates very reasonable. Just have a car or be prepared to take a cab to explore! Oh and do your homework on what to visit. The concierge was absolutely useless! We went to him 5-6 times and he didn't have info, or offer to get info for us. We were there for the South Beach Art Deco Festival. There were signs all over town. It's a huge tourist attraction and he couldn't tell us anything about it-like whether or not there were outdoor booths selling food and goods, etc. we went, and that's exactly what it is. How could he not know that, or offer to find out?

Room Tip: Make sure you at least get a partial water view.

Just stayed at the Miami Beach Resort for 3 nights. Check in was quick and efficient. You also have an option for an express check out. Rooms are very basic, but clean. Took a long time for the water to heat up. Room service was prompt and the food was good.
Don't expect luxury at this hotel as it's an older hotel that could use a facelift. The pool area is quite nice and the pool bar is great. Overall, it's clean, reasonably priced for SOBE...not bad if you're on a budget

We stayed at this hotel for a wedding. The rooms themselves were clean and beautiful and the whole thing is a scam. During check out time is IMPOSSIBLE to get an elevator down the stairs to check out on time. I spoke to a worker and they had another working elevator that the guests could have used but they refused to let anyone use it. WHY? Because then they get to charge you a late check out fee. We were literally stuck on our floor for over an hour waiting for an elevator. We ended up having to carry five suitcases down almost 10 flights of stairs just to leave the place. The food at the hotel is also way overpriced. Overall, it is just not worth it and I always try to give hotels the benefit of the doubt.

I was really pleasantly surprised by the place. The entrance is lovely, the pool is heated and big and the beach is perfectly nice. While the rooms could use an upgrade, they are big and clean and they let me have a cot so my kids could share the king size bed for free as i complained that we asked for two double beds. The cot was comfy, clean. The breakfast restaurant was good, reasonable. Overall, we had a great trip and was happy to be staying here.

This property is in a good location however it is outdated and lacking in service. The website makes the property look much nicer than it actually is. The rooms were not cleaned properly as the glasses where not cleaned daily and the king bed we had was made with queen sheets. They did offer the best price for rental cars in the area and great front desk and valet service. The restaurant and and beach bar where also outdated and dirty.I suppose you get what you pay for and we did get a good deal.

The Miami Beach Resort & Spa is a good hotel in Miami Beach. Good value for money. However the hotel could be a great option in beautiful Miami Beach if they invested in renovation, specially the rooms! I’ve been here 3 years ago and at that time the hotel was already beaten up. It only got worst. Cleanness in the rooms is also an issue. The Staff is very nice. The just need an immediately remodeling!
