I have been addicted to what I call the 'Delano experience' since being introduced to this iconic destination on the Travel Channel 5 years ago. I now visit Delano three times a year during each winter season for at least a week, and, after having just returned home from yet another week of total fabulosity, I know I'll once again have trouble fitting in all that I have to say into this space. The world-class guest care at Delano is simply unmatched, and that is why I keep returning. As soon as one arrives, a magical feeling starts to pour over you. As you enter the huge beautiful indoor/outdoor lobby , with its rich dark floors and towering white, billowy draperies, you know you have just entered into a sophisticated high-end grown-up playground. There are several different eating choices and seating areas, with interesting decor that lead you down toward the fabulous Bianca restaurant which happens to include a huge veranda for outdoor dining if you like. Bianca provides fine dining with authentic organic Italian dishes that are sure to please. May I suggest the Truffle Taglietelle - homemade pasta perfectly done with an amazing cream sauce and black or white truffles depending on the season.....wonderful ! Also, I suggest the Grilled Big eye Tuna 'pizza' , the King Salmon , Petite Filet Mignon, Pasta Pomodora, the Salmon Carpaccio and the Heirloom tomato salad with fresh, soft goat cheese. Amazing management and consistent presence of Director Mahmood Abousalem and Rosario Magrelli lead to a very pleasant dining experience for all- I promise ! The wonderful, knowledgable and very courteous staff includes : Jason, Jana, Julia, Paulo, Stephanie, Lazarro, Chris, Scott , Bradford,Flavio and Fernando .
The huge fabulous pool area with its beautiful staff is perfect for either socializing or just relaxing with a very nice selection of foods and champagne , wine or cocktails. Large number of nice comfy lounge chairs, daybeds (or a cabana) and the attentive staff will surely make your day enjoyable. It is a secure area with direct access to either beautiful South Beach (with Beach service for Delano guests) or out to the walking/bike paths that will surely please. With all that it has to offer, (the fitness club, Delano Beach club, Club Essentia Spa and the Infamous FDR night club) most will find that Delano is a self contained property with really no reason to leave. If you do wish to venture out though, Delano is within short walk or taxi ride to Lincoln road and many other restaurants and popular South Beach attractions.
Delano is a breathtakingly beautiful property with its whimsical, sexy aura and always provides the very finest in guest services and customer care . The updated yet iconic Philip Stark design is cool and comfortable with clean lines and a nice variety of room choices. The rooms feature very comfortable beds with fine linens in cool white rooms, large flat screen TV, bevelled edge mirrors with Carrera marble everywhere. Wonderful glass-encased rainfall shower with fine Malin-Goetz amenities . The hotel and its grounds are discreetly and regularly maintained for comfort safety and beautification .
The biggest asset of Delano is its amazing staff- they ensure that every guest enjoys a fabulous individualized stay, and that is what keeps me coming back. They are a respectful, friendly, talented group of people and the attention to detail ensures the very highest level of satisfaction, whether you are a first time visitor to Delano or frequent repeat guest as I am.
Guest Relations Manager Dwight Palacious and Front Office Manager Lee Greenspan are the most amazingly talented guys, leading a fine team at Delano- their great pride and dedication to customer service exemplifies consistent world-class hospitality service. Their attention to detail is amazing and I am proud after all this time to now consider them my friends. They never cease to amaze me with all that they accomplish. That professionalism and pride trickles down throughout the team, and pretty much guarantees a lovely stay .
Special thanks to the illustrious JP Oliver , to Stacy , Sheerley , Natalie, Jose and Zooley, up front. Much Love and thanks you all . Can't wait to see you again in February !
