Let me begin by saying the layout was pretty nice to accommodate a group of 4 men (1 king size w/ its own bathroom / 2 double bedroom w/ its own bathroom / pull out couch). The pictures of the condo are a bit deceiving (assumed the site used pictures from the other unit). We were hardly in the room except to sleep but the front desk was accommodating and the staff tended to our condo daily. The only con was the shower pressure in the double bed room was really low but other than that the condo was spacious and nice. Be sure to ask for blankets because the unit will get really cold after a night out (AC options - Hi/Low/Off). I would stay at this location again. Overall we had a great stay and my brother enjoyed it (bachelor party weekend). The lady at the front desk was very nice and allowed us to check in early and check out late due to a late flight. Easy access to the beach - great view of downtown. The tenants were also very helpful in locating different places to eat for my group. Great tenants, nice store and great front desk as well.

5101 Collins was amazing!! Right in the middle of everything, we took cabs everywhere we went so that wasn't too expensive. Friendly staff we wished not to get room service just because we didn't want anyone else in our room and staff was concerned and checked a few times on us to make sure we where ok and didn't need anything. The beach was in our back yard, so beautiful and perfect the fact that they had beach towels available was perfect!! Overall our June stay in Miami was amazing if we ever go back we will stay here again!!
This unit I stayed in with friends is not the main pictures shown on the initial site which is slightly misleading. There are pictures of the unit I stayed in mixed in but I think guest should be able to choose which one, especially if there is an option out of two from the owner. With that being said, check and check out were a smooth transaction and the people at the front desk were very accommodating. We were able to check in early and pay an extra $50 to stay until 6 pm for a late flight out. The store downstairs is great, a lot of good things to cook and eat and most general items you may have forgotten to pack are in stock. It's easy to catch a cab at this location also at any time of day or night. Also, being right on the beach is great. Items to note are as follows: the condo I stayed in is pretty outdated. One of the bathrooms toilets ran constantly and the other bathroom had very low shower pressure. Also the balcony door doesn't lock at all - but since its located on the top floor with the exception of the penthouse above that, there is little reason to have a security issue. Also, after reconnecting some of the stove burners, they still did not work properly. But we were able to cook just fine. Overall, this unit was great for the price and location. If the maintenance problems are addressed - I would def stay there again.
