We chose the Sonesta Bayfront in Coconut Grove as we did not want to rent a car while in Miami pre-cruise. We were there for 5 nights.The location of the Sonesta Bayfront is ideal. Overlooking a lovely marina and just steps away from Coconut Grove which has plenty of shopping and dining options. We especially liked the Greenstreet Cafe for breakfast. Also the Peacock Garden Cafe right next door is a lovely place for dinner. Our room was a one-bedroom apartment with a full kitchen, bedroom, lounge, bathroom, guest bathroom and balcony. Lovely, very comfortable and clean.We had booked a corner suite which I assumed would be on an outside corner of the building with views in two different directions, but in fact it was an 'inside' corner ie our room was where two sides of the building joined. We only went to the bar once. Never ate in the hotel. The pool deck/bar/restaurant area is very windy, and there are so many options nearby. The reception staff are 'distant' as other reviewers have commented. No heads are raised when you walk by, no 'good mornings' are offered. The only time we saw any animation in the reception staff was when a resident appeared and a staff member said, "Oh, hi, Mr xxxxx, we haven't seen you for ages". Do remember that this hotel is partly hotel and partly private residences. This is not made clear in the advertising. The bellboys on the other hand were outstanding, very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Our stay was ideal and I'd go back in a moment, just one small flaw and that was the lack of engagement with the reception staff.
