“Great location but needs updating”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

Family of four stayed 2 nights post cruise on March 10th & 11th 2013. Kids (9 & 6 y.o.) were excited to walk the red-carpet and into the foyer. People at the reception were very friendly and efficient. We were hoping for an early check-in but we were fine with waiting. We brought our swimsuits in a carry-on bag and left the luggage with the porter. We were able to enjoy the pool and a walk on the beach. Pool is big and had some toys that the kids could play with. Great pool chairs for the parents to catch some rays. Beach was easily accessible and nice but the undertow was very strong so no swimming for us. Did find some great seashells though! Once our room was ready, reception called us on our cellphone. Room was quite big with lots of closet space. Very clean and quiet. Had a partial oceanview room and we saw cruisechips heading out to sea. For lunch, we ate at the pool restaurant. Very good but a little expensive. For dinner, nobody felt like dressing up to go out but there was not much in terms of casual dining so we ended up ordering pizza. The beds, not the most comfortable. Felt like I was constantly rolling into the middle. The shower head was broken and the water knob was not easy to figure out. That was probably the most frustrating part. Having said that, the location and beach access was the best!

Stayed at miami beach resort & spa with my boyfriend for a week from 20th march when visiting for Ultra music festival! Hotel was amazing check in staff really welcoming and was offered the choice of double or king size bed on arrival! Veiw from our room of the bay was amazing the huge houses across the bay are so nice to wake up to every morning! And rooms were cleaned thoroughly every day!

Food & drink in the hotel i would say is pricey haveing to pay a service charge when simply buying a drink at the bar. But the food and drink served by the pool is pretty good! Prefered the beach to the pool the pool becomes shaded quite often due to the big buildings around it.

Found the consierge for booking trips also quite helpful one even made a booking for a resturant for us. PRIME 112 stek resturant is a must visit! Amazing food.

The only bac points to the stay i would say is that the aircon was unnecessarily cold 24/7 there were people in the resturant wearing jumpers (including myself) corridors and public areas were always freezing!
Also on the last day after check out we were alowed to use shower rooms in gym to shower before we left. I wish i hadnt bothered one was blocked and overflowing the other was just ice cold water and when i notified the man looking after the gym he told me " theres nothing i can do, i dont work here a lot" i askd wat to do with valubles if i could leave them at desk he said " no im leaving in a minute any way i only sit here and read theres nothing i can do" really rude and unhelpful.
Also when we ordered breakfast roomservice our order left on our door wasnt collected and we didnt get breakfast

Friendly staff who realize that the hotel has shortcomings. Lobby is nice but rooms are old and while clean not well preserved. Great location. Right on the beach. Hotel will be updated so this may not apply at that time.

Hotel was easy to get to, had a lovely reception/lobby area and heated swimming pool with easy access to the beach. However the quality of the room didn't really match the price paid. Yes it was large but we had a CRT television rather than flat screen, and I had to re-wire the aerial as the connection in the lead was loose. Bathroom wasn't that big either. Storage space (wardrobes) was plentiful with one being a walk in. Price was room only which considering per night cost was disappointing.
Also if you drove to the hotel parking there was $28 a day. This may not have been too bad except we were under the impression it was included in the price yet it wasn't. I probably would stay here again if I got a better price on the room.
Reception staff were very helpful. Both were training but did a great job in making you feel welcome. Also when we found an old sandwich and pack of ham in the minibar, we reported it on the way out and when we got back it was cleaned away.
One tip. Get the 120 bus to downtown Miami otherwise you'll be stopping loads.

Room Tip: Try and get sea view. Partial sea views means you get a beach view and city view which wasn't to...

Big, fancy and glitzy hotel just by the beach. Really nice for a night or two but for a longer stay I would prefer a smaller hotel with some personal charm and atmosphere. We got a really nice and big, clean room with a very comfortable bed and a wardrobe AND a walk in closet. The bathroom was also very big with some lovely toiletries, nice! Did´nt have time to test the pool but it was big and looked quite appealing. There is a small coffeshop for the early birds but instead I would strongly recommend the really delicious breakfast buffet for 17 USD in the restaurant. The valet service was very convenient though a bit pricey, 28 USD.

Great, just great. I was highly impressed with the cleanliness of this hotel. They kept it immaculate. Rooms were very very large. Beds comfy. Two things I would recommend...better TVs in the rooms and fridges in the room. The valet is a lil overpriced and required if you bring a car. For the money it was great. Would absolutely stay again!

I was a little apprehensive about this hotel because of the negative reviews. I am so glad that I decided to stay with my decision to go forward with this hotel.Yes, the hotel could be modernized, but still the hotel was nice. The service was impeccable. The hotel also has a very nice restaurant /lounge downstairs. It has valet service which is $28.00 a day so keep this in mind when booking this hotel, however upon checking out we were given a complimentary credit of $75.00 which we put towards the parking fees. The only negative thing I have to say about this hotel is that upon leaving the hotel no one helped us load our bags in the car before departure. With that said I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Pick 10th floor up or higher for a better view.
