Ants in room, dirty sheets, slow housekeeping

We had originally booked a signature double room (sleeps 4) but upon arrival it was clear to see that there was no way 3 people and luggage could fit into the room. It was so narrow with limited storage space so no space for us or our suitcases. The bathroom was completely see through aswell which doesn't suit a family. We then upgraded to the kascades suites (across the road) which was a much better sized room (again see through bathroom but we had a shower curtain put in) however we soon noticed that we had ants on all the walls and surfaces in the room. We called the front desk who said they would send round housekeeping who took nearly 45 minutes to come and spray the room. Before that we waited 30 minutes for housekeeping to come and change a stained sheet. Their housekeeping is very slow to respond which was frustrating. The spray didn't work as we still had ants the next day. We were then moved again to another suite the next day which was better but then on the last day I found ants on our bed. Overall I was very disappointed and angry with this hotel. We had also paid a resort fee which included 2 lounge chairs and towels at the beach. As we were 3 people in the room I asked if we would get 3 loungers to which front desk replied yes. We then got to the beach to be told we could only have 2 and that this 'miscommunication' with front desk happens all the time. Service overall was extremely bad.

Style over substance

Only a half wardrobe and two small bedside drawers for storage?! Although it boasts 3 bars, one was never staffed and the rooftop bar held sponsored events everyday (and late into the night on one occasion) to which hotel guests were not invited. Although we were told we had been upgraded to one of the larger rooms, it was the smallest balcony I've seen and was mostly taken up with a lime tree in a huge pot and no view because the walls were so high. Shame because the staff were all very helpful and friendly.

Great South Beach hotel

This is a great hotel on Collins Ave, a block over from the beach and a short stroll along the walkway to Ocean Drive. The hotel is well decorated and the staff are friendly and helpful. There is a mandatory resort fee charged daily which covers use of sun beds on the beach, as well as credit towards money spent in the hotel bar/restaurant. The main drawback is a lack of on site parking, but many hotels are in the same position. If you have a car, parking in the area is very expensive. Overall, a lovely hotel with character and we'll located to enjoy the best of South Beach.

A gem in busy South Beach

Quiet Hotel, well refurbished with helpful staff! Loved the style, the restaurant's food and the convenience of a beach and a pool... Rooms are small however, and you cannot hang clothes. Not a problem if you wear bikinis but just saying...

AMAZING HOTEL - lots of extra costs

I want to start by saying this hotel is AMAZING! It's gorgeous, modern, interesting, the room was lovely, and housekeeping came twice a day to replenish and clean everything. The pool is small but you go to Miami for the beach! Its only one block away and you can use the sister hotel's sun loungers and umbrella. The only thing is the room tax and city taxes etc that are added at the end of the stay (we stayed for 2 nights and it was $56). Also they have LOTS of things in the room like suncream, pack of cards, coasters, sweets etc but nothing says whether they are complementary or not and there is no price on them to know how much they will be. Other than the above this hotel is SO WORTH IT!

Well located and meeting expectation

A little bit noisy (from the disco/bar) and guests were not very respectful in the middle of the night.

Premier séjour et je n'y retournerai pas ! Beaucoup de bla bla pour pas grand chose...., personnel peu compétent et désagréable Chambre se voulant art deco, mais simple et pas fonctionnel pour ce type d'établissement. Depuis votre chambre vous entendez tous les clients allé et venir sur le parquet, ce qui est extrêmement désagréable ! N'ayant rien à dire de positif, je vais m'arrêter là
