I booked an ocenview suite at The Newport Beachside Resort for myself and my 27 year old daughter for a 5 day R&R getaway. What we got far exceeded our expectations!
The arrival area and lobby were absolutely stunning with a grand reception desk, sparkling gift shops and restaurants and concierge desk. The desk staff was friendly, courteous and efficient, we were checked in and on the way to our room in minutes. The hotel offers bell service as well as valet parking.
Our room was perfect with two televisions, a king bed and a Murphy bed tucked behind a sofa and occasional table. Ammenities included a safe, microwave, small refrigerator, ironing board and iron as well as a blow dryer and ALL Bath and Body Works toiletries. The bath was marble tiled and included a deep, Jacuzzi jetted tub and plenty of crisp, fluffy, white towels and washcloths. Our beds were firm and comfortable and the linens were changed to crisp clean ones daily by the friendly cleaning staff. The view from our patio was breathtaking!! We spent many hours there just lisening to the waves hit the shore and enjoying the tropical breezes. Our room was neat, tidy and extremely comfortable.
The beach was second to none. The staff was out early combing the sand and preparing the Tiki Huts for the day. You can rent a hut for $20 daily or an umbrella (personally placed by the beach staff) for $10 per day. All lounge chairs are free and there's plenty of space for sunning and playing. There is sand volleyball available as well as a playground, basketball goal and jet ski rentals. The resort also has beachside showers and foot showers for getting off the excess sand and salt before heading indoors. Thirsty or hungry? No worries, as there are beach waitresses ready to bring you a meal, snack or tropical drink. The beach staff was amazing and they'd do anything to make us comfortable! Forget your sunscreen? You can purchase some as well as beach towels and other necessities just steps from the beach, poolside. There is always music playing and sometimes even a steel drum band which adds to the amazing tropical atmosphere!
The pools are crystal clear, large and very well kept. They include a huge main pool and a baby pool and are surrounded by a beautiful stonework deck with tables and chairs with umbrellas and matching lounge chairs. There is also a bar and restaurant right there so you can enjoy any meal while the ocean breezes blow through your hair.
The Newport is unsurpassed for family fun. Every day we had an activities schedule delivered to our room and some of the activites included seashell hunts, poolside horse races, coloring contests and cookie decorating for the kids as well as Karaoke, Bingo, jewely auctions, henna tattoos and champagne receptions for the adults.
You may never need to leave this resort as they have two full service restaurants, three gift shops, an arcade, spa, wellness center and a nice little coffe shop with cold drinks, snacks, fresh fruit, salads and pastries. The prices are reasonable and vary by which restaurant you choose to frequent.
If you want to venture out, there is plenty within walking distance! There is shopping, restaurants, liquor store, botiques and a grocery just a couple a blocks away. Need souvineers? I highly recommend Wings for everything from tee shirts and alligator heads to swim suits, post cards and hats.
A must visit is the Pelican Restaurant on the pier. No need to run in from the beach, shower and change....oh no! Come as you are with beach head and flip flops for an unforgettable meal and some of the nicest staff in Sunny Isles. I highly recommend the fish and chips as well as the made-to-order angus burgers. This open sided, Tiki style restaurant is all about atmosphere, so if you're a five star kind of person, opt for the 503 at the hotel, but if you're a laid back, relax and have a good time person, the Pelican is for you! And don't forget the camera, as the hijinks of the pelicans are not something you want to miss!
A huge thank you to Armando, Steve, Amos and Johnathon (as well as many others) who made our mother-daughter trip magical and made us feel like royalty! We WILL be back.....and next summer, we're bringing the entire family!
