Pool area was great and location on South beach was very good.

What a great place. On Ocean Drive and being a few hundred years from the action was right where it needs to be but nice and quiet too. Nice rooms friendly staff and a rooftop pool great for relaxing. I’ll be back

Good 6.0
Staff nice apart from hostess from the restaurant. Hotel needs renovation. Water leaking on the corridor on 3rd floor. Not much light probably is a good tactic to cover imperfections. Dirty toilets in a bathroom and lots of hair. Carpet in the lift discussing. Good points : bikes.
Anna, gb1 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
We loved this hotel. It was in an excellent location on Ocean Drive but not on the most busy part. Our room was huge and quiet and had a balcony you could see the beach from. We only stayed here for 2 nights but would loved to have stayed longer.
