We just got back yesterday from a 5 night trip to South Beach. We chose the Loews Miami beach because of its good reviews and location. We were not disappointed, however taken back by the high prices for the food, drinks, beach chairs, etc.
My husband and I have traveled to South Beach several times without children, but this time took our 3 kids (from 5 months to 9 years old). The staff was extremely helpful and friendly from the moment we arrived. The hotel and grounds are very clean and lovely. Upon arriving, our children did not get their "welcome packs," but the staff made up for that with a gift certificate to the gift shop. The rooms were nice, but on the small side for a family of 5. The pool is great - very large and heated. There's an excellent walk in area for small children - a gradual incline of water (like the ocean). This worked out really well for our 2 1/2 year old and many other toddlers staying at the hotel. Plan to arrive early morning to get your chair, towels and cushion set up by the pool. The chairs get taken fast! Many people tend to stay by the pool since you have to pay for a chair and umbrella at the beach. $10 a chair and $15 for an umbrella.
There's great food and drink service at the pool and beach, however very expensive for both! $16 bucks for a burger and $14 for a frozen drink to wash it down! We were thankful that we had been there many times before and knew where to eat. Many great restaurants, fast food joints, coffee shops, etc. are within blocks.
All in all it was a great place to take the family. The hotel, beach and location is fantastic and our kids as well as my husband and I really enjoyed ourselves. I would definitely recommend this hotel and stay there again.
