Lovely little hotel
Posted Mar 15, 2017
Just stayed for a week and was very happy with the accommodations. The apartment had everything that you could want including a granite kitchen, 2 new A/C units and 2 flat screen TV's. There was even a little desk area for your laptop. Plenty of towels, soaps, lotion, sponges, dish-washing liquid etc. The grounds were wonderful with many quiet little seating areas tucked into beautiful flowering gardens. It was easy to get to from the airport with the Airport Flyer bus #150 stopping literally a 2 minute walk away. Like so many other South Beach area hotels, soundproofing was not great, but the buildings in the area have been around for so long that soundproofing probably didn't even exist back in the day. Even with the poor soundproofing I found it easy to sleep by just having the bedroom A/C run in fan mode while I slept. The white noise did the trick. My only complaint was the pool area. They REALLY need to monitor guest activities at the pool. I saw so many varieties of crazy going on at the pool that I could write for another 10 minutes. People standing inside the pool holding glass beer bottles, unsupervised children running laps around the pool and throwing nerf footballs at unrelated guests, various groups competing musically with their Bluetooth speakers even though the pool had it's own stereo system running. My vacations are about zoning out and relaxing so for the last 3 days I walked the 5 blocks to their sister hotel and used that non-crazy pool to get some peace
