Great Hotel

Posted Apr 18, 2018
Pros: the pool is great and the beach too.
Cons: nothing
Location: This hotel is almost right across from the Bal Harbour mall. Best restaurant around is on the TOP level called "The Grill".
Don't let its age fool you. This hotel is a hidden gem among more modern hotels. Even though there is a little renovation going on, it did not effect anything. The pool is super clean and the attendants are on top of everything. Can't say anything bad and I am very critical.

Great weekend getaway.

Liked everything about this spot. Easy access to the beach and shops. A little too strict on pool hours. However, great experience.

Horrible experience

Posted Apr 15, 2018
The hotel was horrible, worse experience ever. Charged extra money for an extra person and then the managers/ workers bickering in front of us weather they should lower it or not. The hotel was under construction and it was never informed on Expedia. The hotel looked unkept and dirty. The beds uncomfortable. We checked out 3 hours earlier just to get out of there. Hair dryer sounded like it was going to catch fire & no towels at the pool, and it looked gross full of sand. Not pleased with our stay at all.

Wonderful experience !

Posted Apr 11, 2018
My husband and I recently stayed at this great hotel. They are currently renovating but they were nice enough to upgrade us so we would be away from the construction noise. The room did not disappoint. The view from our balcony was beautiful and the room was very clean. On top of that, they have a heated pool and the beach was just phenomenol with chairs and towels included. Staff was friendly as well! We will definitley be staying here again.

They were doing work on the hotel during our visit

Mixed feelings about the hotel. Positives: Staff is very nice and the inside of the hotel was clean. Negative: They were doing work on the balconies and it was very loud. Pool could have been kept cleaner.

Very convenient for breakfast lunch and dining. We enjoy none crowded environments and this place was perfect. Very quiet and everyone was respectful. Beach service was great as that is where we spent most of our time followed by a late day dip in the heated pool.

Perfect location. Beachfront

Posted Mar 19, 2018
Pros: Location
Cons: When someone checks in the front desk should inform the guest of at least a few of the property features and mention how to get to the room.
The hotel is very nice and almost all of the staff was great. Every person on staff smiled and said hi. The hotel is very clean. The hallways are too heavily perfumed and the rooms are as well at times. The air filters probably should be changed more often (the one in our room was very dark). The staff for the pool and beach are very helpful. The bar staff were also very friendly and very helpful. The concierge and front desk people don't seem to know much about the area or hotel.
