The hotel is absolutely beautiful. It is oceanfront, and has a very nice swimmingpool with
tiki bar as well. I had an oceanfront room with a beautiful view. The room was adequate, but rather small, and sorely missed a balcony to enjoy the view from... It did not have a refrigerator, but one was immediately provided upon request.
This used to be my favorite hotel years ago when it was still known as the Miami Beach Ocean Resort, when as a tour manager I regularly came here with groups... (And always had a wonderful room, as the staff then regularly upgraded me, something which did not happen now) It has since been renovated, and this was my first time back.. It has become more expensive, and it used to have a wonderful central bar and great entertainment at night! As a result it was possible to meet other (single) guests staying at the hotel.. This is no longer possible, and it is very quiet.
I checked in fairly late, and feel that the receptionist on duty did not make me aware of all the
options the hotel provided.. There was for instance a small store where one could buy a coffee/croissant/donut as an alternative to the very expensive breakfast (which is excellent but which I only could treat myself to once), but I did not find out about this until almost the end of my stay..
Although the hotel is still wonderful, I probably would not stay here again, but do recommend it
for families and couples!
