Stayed here for a weekend to visit family in October 2013. Chris at the front desk is amazing with an amazing smile! Kamille was also very helpful and cheerful throughout the stay. They made me feel like a VIP. I qualified for an upgrade due to the online package I purchased to an ocean front room - breathtaking! The room was very spacious and modern.

Kudos to the staff - you have a new repeat customer!

Enjoy!

We have been to South Florida many times, but this was the first time we had stayed at Sole on the Ocean. We arrived early that morning and the first person we meet was "Anna" at registration. She was very nice and accomadating, as she already had our room that we had requested earlier in the week ready for us. She even asked if we would like to trade up for something bigger or better view, but we declined as once we saw the great view from the 21st floor of both the ocean and intercoastal we decided it was awesome and no need to change. Anna through our whole trip was great for whatever we needed and for a person who is about to have her first child any day now, she was always patient with our requests. (good luck with your new child !!) Any way we loved the beach there, even though our first few days we could not go in the ocean because of some type of bacteria in the sunny isle beach area, but this was just temporary and there was no problems after. Alba's resteraunt located at the resort was great and their salads with crabmeat is awesome as well as their deserts. On the beach you could order for lunch and drinks and "jeorge" got us our seasoned fries like clockwork every day at noon. This resort is a "gem", and the whole staff from the beach guy's to the cleaning staff , and to the front desk , everyone was freindly ! We like to get an early workout out on the beach and we found a place for breakfast, "Denny's"that is open 24hrs. right down the road with some great specials. Also there is a cool Mexican style outdoor/indoor restaraunt just down from Epicure that has a great menu with happy hour that we loved. All in all this was a great vacation with great weather as well and would not hesitate to come back again !!

Room Tip: rooms that are 15th floor and above has some great views and any that are either north or south faci...

I have stayed at many of the well known brands hotels like the W, Delano and St. Regis and NONE of them provide the level of service I experienced while staying at Sole! Rooms was spacious and clean and the staff was absolutely amazing!!
Very surprise at the value since it's VERY affordable to what they offer.
Maria at the Front Desk was a breath of fresh air and simply started our vac on the right path! Will def be back.

First off, I am an accounts specialist for MR Hotel Management group from NYC... So I am very anal about my stays during travel!

Hadn't been back home(Miami) in about a year and every time I stay at Sole haven't been to a different hotel in years! The service is amazing, special rec goes to Kamile she does nothing other than smile and remain accommodating! Maria is awesome as well during her relief shifts... They both serve as great ambassadors for a new Front Office from what I could tell!

I miss the old familiar faces, however management did a great job of finding more excellent people!

I stayed on the top floor 2407 as always in an amazing room, I'm actually in the room writing this now as I was given a late checkout by Kamile! She's the best...

Thanks you guys and feel free to continue Wowing the guest and going above and beyond!

Our stay at Sole on the Ocean saved our trip to Florida! We were looking for rest, relaxation and rejuvenation at the beach, but we started in South Beach which was too noisy too late for us on this trip. Fortunately, we found Sole on the Ocean in Sunny Isles which was perfect - lovely hotel, terrific amenities, spacious and relaxing suite with a beautiful ocean view, wrap-around balcony, great location and right on an immaculate beach! The staff and service were excellent. The beach and pool crew, led by Diego, were top notch and helped make our stay memorable by providing for and even anticipating our needs. Sanford, "Sandy," brought guest relations to an even higher level, very attentive and with great suggestions for food and entertainment in the area. We dined at the hotel's restaurant, Alba, several times and were treated well and enjoyed the interesting and yummy cuisine and wines. We will be back for another relaxing couple's trip, and this great find of a hotel also is a place we'd love to visit with the grandchildren.
