Had very good 8 day stay in a lovely, very clean, spacious double room with a side view of the Ocean. Ironing board, kettle and supplies etcThere is a Sub Sandwich shop just about opposite and a liquor store and an expensive 'market', supermarket closeby.
Breakfast was all we wanted and more, service good.Thank you.
Check out and check in simple and fast.
The two pcs (with printers) in the lobby had extortianate internet access fees at $3 for 4 mins and free wifi worked well for us.
The pool area with hammocks wass excellent and very relaxing, ? next doors, hot jacuzzi is lovely.
The poolside music is not overbearing and the whole area is constantly maintained to a high standard, looks good and with poolside towels provided. The tikki bar is pricey.
When the sun moved we moved with it across onto the beach. A gate at the back of hotel leads onto the wooden boardwalk which then has steps down to the beach, so the ocean is basically - right there on your doorstep.
We walked the length of the boardwalk (which joins to a stone beachfront walk) heading south to around 5th street, which took us about 35 mins to walk . We walked it day and evening and, it is lamp lit at night and and police patrols on cycles passed us as we walked up and down. Public loos at Lummus Park.
A yellow, metered cab from 4th to 44th cost us $13.
The bus coming from the direction of South beach heading North stops outside, right near the hotel. The bus C comes roughly every 20 mins but other buses stop here too, including the 120 Beachmax.
The bus heading South towards South beach leaves from Indian Creek Drive which is the street parallell to Collins and the bus stop is on 41st street.
The bus costs $2 and the machine accepts notes and coins but does not give change, no ticket is produced either. Every request stop is usually called so it can take a good while to get to where you want to be.
The Airport Flyer bus goes from right outside the hotel on Collins at around 43rd street and is an express bus to MIA, takes about 40 mins and cost $2.35 per person with room for suitcases.
We took this with nno problem and it connects to the free shuttle taking you into the airport, all very straightforward.
