Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
The hotel staff was excellent. The rooms are extremely small and our room had one light on the ceiling on the corner. The room is super dark. The bathroom lights did not work properly as well as the fan. Not ideal with three guys trying to get ready for the day. No mirrors aside from one in the bathroom.

I liked the area and proximity to the beach. Didn't love how small the bathroom was but i could live with it if the shower didn't leak everywhere. Really sucked 2 of us trying to shower one after the other because no matter what we did there was a mess. No house keeping. Had to keep asking for towels then toilet paper. Just felt yucky after 4 days so wish that would be better

The hotel urgently needs to improve the lights inside the rooms. These are not pleasant and too dark. The pool floor, which is very small, needs maintenance and repair. The bathroom lights are not working properly specially when you need to go to sleep. In addition, the hotel is well located close by to everything on south beach and near by to South Point / South of fifth
