We had a very nice stay for a long weekend as a couple. Hotel is in a perfect location...walking distance to Lincoln Road, Espanola Way,etc. Right off the beach. It is a public beach, though, and I wasn't aware of this before the trip.....but it was not a problem at all. We rented chairs and an umbrella and they gave us chair covers. We just picked up towels from the pool area.
The pool and pool area were very nice and ice water was provided. The staff sometimes had a little bit of trouble keeping clean towels available, and it could be difficult to get a seat at the pool. The wine hour from 5:00 to 6:00 every evening was great!
The hotel was recently renovated and everything was brand new and clean. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. Casey the bartender made some good recommendations about places to eat and visit. Also nice was to have a bike rental place right next door, what a beautiful view along the ocean walkway.
We only had lunch at the hotel restaurant one day...it was okay, not many choices. Just like any other restaurant you go to in South beach it adds 18% gratuity. With so many dining options just a short walk away, don't bother with the Lantao......go to Lincoln Road or Espanola Way or any other place. There is an awesome CVS a block away that is a combination liquor store, Hallmark store, grocery store. We got small items for breakfast since we aren't big breakfast people and the hotel's breakfast was expensive and not very good. I also asked for a Keurig for our room so I didn't have to go down to the lobby every morning for my coffee.
To sum it all up:
Location, location, location! Couldn't beat it!
small room, wouldn't recommend for a family...but otherwise great.....didn't spend much time in the room.
great pool area, great beach, absolutely beautiful!
