Mad Miami!

Hotel was smack bang in the middle of Ocean Drive so if you are looking for a lovely clean hotel and don't mind it being noisy from the surrounding bars then this is the place for you. Hotel staff were very nice and always helpful. Clean beach towels were provided everyday along with the beach chairs but be aware that you do have to carry your beach chairs to the beach everyday if needed. Complimentary breakfast was a plus and provided a variety of options every day with endless supply of coffee!

Fantastic 2 night break!

This was a fantastic start to our holiday. We had two nights in Miami before travelling to Orlando. The staff were very welcoming when we arrived. The location is fantastic, right on the beach. Hotel provided beach chairs and towels which was perfect for spending a few hours on the beach. Ocean Drive was really lively and fun and it was great to step out of your hotel right into the hustle and bustle of it all. Due to the location, parking was difficult. We drove from airport but were unable to pull up outside the hotel as it was so busy but we found a public car park just round the corner. Would definitely reccomend this hotel.

Emplacement idéal et c’est tout

Nous avons séjourné 9 nuits dans cet hôtel, les points positifs sont les suivants: - emplacement idéal, en plein Océan Drive, à deux pas de l’an plus belle plage de South Beach - personnel sympathique - prêt de chaises de plage Les points négatifs sont les suivants: - Hotel vieillissant - chambres peu confortables - nettoyage des chambre quotidien quasi inexistant (le sol n’est pas aspiré, la baignoire non rincée, la poussière non faite) - la climatisation est trop bruyante - le petit déjeuner est affreux

Super Strand Hotel an der Ocean Drive

Unser Aufenthalt im Beacon Hotel war sehr gut. Super Service, sehr freundliches, hilfbereites Personal, saubere Zimmer sind zwar etwas klein und eng. Deshalb das nächste mal würde ich ein grosses Zimmer buchen. Sonst ist es Top Lage und mit Frühstück super gut. Ausser es wäre ein zweiter Toaster im Frühstücksraum von Vorteil. Vielen Dank!

Kiva hotelli lähellä rantaa

Pros: Sijanti oli hyvä.
Cons: Aamiainen oli todella suppea eikä vastannut hotellin tasoa.
Location: Lähellä oli ranta ja rantakatu mahdollisuuksineen.
Hotelli oli kaiken kaikkiaan hyvä kokemus: vastasi odotuksia, sijaitsi hyvällä paikalla, oli siisti. Aamiainen ei vastannut odotuksia eikä hotellin tasoa.

Arvoisa arvostettu vieras, Kiitos arvostelusta ja ajasta. Mitä meillä on rajoitettu buffet-aamiainen, me ymmärrämme meillä kaikilla on eri etusijalle, minkä vuoksi ravintola tarjoaa myös a la carte -menun. Jälleen kerran, kiitos siitä, että olet päättänyt pysyä Beacon-hotellissa. Ystävällisin terveisin,
