This hotel is only 2 blocks from all the partying. Staff was so pleasant. Only thing that I had a problem with is the pool was out of service.

Awesome stay. The hotel is clean no worries there. The staff’s hospitality is exceptional. Khadijah is the best. The diverse staff was welcoming, kind and helpful. We wanted for nothing. The breakfast burrito was delicious and the margarita at happy hour did not disappoint. The bed is so comfortable you will struggle to get out of bed. The room had several robes and slippers as well. The location is less than 1 block from the beach. The hotel provided beach towels and chairs on the beach when you arrive. Even the staff on beach were friendly and kind. The bathroom is kind of small but it got the job done. The hotel is one block south from the action of ocean drive, which is awesome. all the fun of Ocean Dr without the noise when it’s time to rest. I would definitely return to this hotel.
