    The food was excellent, and the room very comfortable. The pool area is a real bonus - a bit small but lovely addition. A lovely alternative to the huge hotels of a similar standard, with all the luxury but a little more intimate and better value for money

    Only perhaps nowhere to store bags once you’ve checked out if you’re waiting to fly later in the day

    Very nice themed rooms and facilities. Roof top pool was gorgeous for a nice sunset dip. Great location.

    Spacious room. Nice decor.

    The hotel is relatively small but extremely cozy and well decorated. The room and bathroom were very clean and the staff was always very helpful. The hotel provided complimentary towels, umbrellas and chairs for the beach as well as bikes for rides around Miami beach. The rooftop was very nice too! This hotel made our first visit to Miami extremely pleasant!

    This hotel was very nice and we were very pleased with our stay. However, there were 2 things that were not so pleasant and we would like to specify them below for future improvement: ---Our room (number 9) was right above some kind of garage door and every morning around 7am we started hearing some kind of very loud noise related with the opening of the garage door. The noise would then go on and off every now and then from 7am until 9/10am. We did inform the hotel staff and they stopped the noise the following morning, however it came back the two mornings after. We were surprised about this given that the hotel was very nice and very comfortable. ---Although the roof top was very nice, some kind of bleach/strange smell came from the pool every now and then. We enjoyed the facilities on the rooftop but did not go into the pool after noticing that smell.

    The room was clean. The area is quiet and not found at night time. The hotel's restaurant served excellent food.

    My friends booked exactly the same room and we paid the same amount of money but their room seemed to be smaller and didn't have balcony either.
