Our family recently stayed at the Miami Beach Resort and Spa for Spring Break. I felt a bit like I was stepping back in time. You can see the glamour that once shone at this property, but it is long overdue for an updating overhaul. Everything looks shabby or in disrepair. The hotel has a great location, large patio, pool and direct beach access. The property is quiet and convenient to get to from the airport. But you cannot walk to anything, not even another restaurant. Taxi or car is necessary to get to South Beach. The hotel rooms are very large and comfortable, lots of extra floor space and huge closets. Funny kind of tub shower, but double sinks were handy with the family. Meals were free for our kids, but the menu was so expensive for my husband and I for food that was fair to poor that we rarely ate on the property anyway. I'm not sure what the "resort" amenities are. Seemed to be just the same things offered at any hotel on the beach. The pool was OK, beach was OK, no hot tub. Parking was annoying. There always seemed to be a back up in the lobby and at the valet. The waiters at breakfast always seemed to be fighting with one another for tables or something, and the staff at the pool were really annoying. Limited number of towels available, packed up the umbreallas and closed the pool too early for our family. Also, the property once entended further south, and looks like it was abruptly cut off from the adjacent property. There is a flimsy plywood partition that cuts off stairs and railing from the property next door that was a constant puzzle to my husband the entire time we were at the pool.
