Good: -Staff -Amenities (beach access, pool, gym, bar, etc.) -Location Bad: -DANGEROUSLY SLIPPERY TILE FLOOR -Cost -Small - horribly designed rooms that was taken up more by a chest full of items they want you to buy. See through bathroom door -No shower door - causing water on the floor -Dark hallways that are hard to see in -Thin walls that you can hear anything next door -Bikes were never available or they were broken or missing our entire stay -Some weird stains on my pillow the first the night - Limited drinking water If you are older DO NOT STAY HERE. I traveled for a wedding with my parents (60s/ 70s), as well as my aunt. The amount of times my parents (even me) almost slipped on that white tile floor and had a full painful crash on the hard tile was scary. Added to this the bathrooms do not have a shower door so the entire floor gets drenched with water making it even more dangerous than it already was. My aunt did end up falling and hurting her tail bone from the floor. We saw in the photos online there should have been a runner/ rug but none of us received one. Honestly a death waiting to happen. The bathroom door is also that fog glass, which is super awkward if you are traveling with your family (or anyone) as you can see more than you'd like into the bathroom. Such a bad design. Our room was super small. We barely had space to put our things as they have taken a large chunk of the room for a ‘have to buy’ chest of food and drinks instead of just giving us needed space or our own fridge. It was a waste an entire section of the room (my aunts room was bigger than ours even though it was the same price). At 4 am our neighbor started BLASTING his TV (not the hotels fault) but we all woke up and it felt like we had it blasting in our own room because the walls are so thin. I tried to call down to the hotel staff and the phone was broken. I had to walk down and inform them. From here the staff handled it wonderfully and the entire hotel staff was professional, kind, and quick (one of the best parts of the hotel is the staff). The hallways are SO DARK and cold. I have decent eye site and it was still hard to see in those weird cave like hallways. My mom wanted to bike ride with my dad. Everyday she checked and the bikes were either broken or missing. The beach access and pool are amazing! If you are going here just spend the day on the beach or out of the hotel. Also the bartenders were great! Overall the design on this hotel is bad (to the extreme of physical danger) the nice staff and amenities are really what you are paying for. Finally for one room you only get 2 bottles of water a day. And their water fountains in the hallway do not work. I dont mind tap water but hopefully it was ok drinking water. I was just shocked if they didn't have access to drinkable water why they would be so stingy with bottled water.

Really enjoyed everything about this hotel and experience. Travelling between overseas trips the staff were very professional and accomodating. The hotel is in a perfect location of South Beach Miami. The fit out of rooms, lobby pool, bar and beach amenities is top notch, all at a reasonable price. Thank you will stay again.
