Disappointed in Miami
Posted Mar 20, 2017
The SLS hotel is located on a wonderful beach. The hotel room was very clean and the the bed very comfortable. Unfortunately, the room is the size of a small closet, part of the daily resort fee ($35) includes a daily newspaper which you have to go to the main desk in the lobby to pick up and most days they run out of them. There isn't an ice machine available for guests you have to request ice by telephone and wait for it to be delivered. The pool area has very few chairs and very few chairs are available until late in the afternoon. The beach is lovely and and you receive 2 beach chairs daily with you resort fee, and this was the most wonderful part of our stay. There is food and beverage service at the beach and a 4 to 5 ounce cocktail like a Mojito costs $18.99 with tax and gratuity it then becomes $25 for a drink. A small bottle of water costs $13. There are not drink special, or drink of the day. 2 doors down from the SLS is the Ritz Carlton. They offer $8 glasses of wine, many drink specials of the day Mojito $10 and app specials. You really do not save any money staying at the SLS. The Loews costs about the same as SLS and they too have drink specials and food specials everyday. At the end of my stay I realized that I paid quite a bit for the SLS and received very little in return. The highlight of my stay was the beach which is the same beach as the Loews and the Ritz.
