This hotel was the pearl in Ocean Drive, absolutely beautiful both inside and out. The charm of the hotel was also replicated throughout the service and atmosphere within the hotel. Nothing was too much of a problem and we felt extremely welcome.
The beach across the road is also stunning, and the service from the beach staff again was also amazing, arranging our sun beds, towels and umbrellas each day, together with providing up to date weather reports.
We would totally recommend The BLT restaurant within the hotel, we went both on lunch and dinner and each time the food was outstanding. Sitting outside of an evening allows you to watch the interesting sights that go by with the amazing cars driving by, to very random people carrying snakes!!!
During the odd day when the weather was a bit doubtful we went to the Malls. The Adventura Mall was only about 20 mins in a taxi and only cost around $35, however we got caught in traffic on the way back so it did cost slightly more - would definitely recommend a day at the Mall, it was fantastic. If you want something a little closer, Lincoln Mall is only about two blocks from the hotel and had a good array of different shops and restaurants.
The hotel does have a swimming pool, however the only disappointing thing is that it's quite enclosed (although it's been stunningly designed) the sun doesn't really get to it, and in the whole time we were there very few people used it. The sun terrace on the roof, however is also beautiful with a great bar service, but you would have to go all the way to the ground floor to cool off in the pool, but you do have a stunning beach across the road. Apart from this minor thing, the hotel is really stunning, and we looked forward to returning each day. Our rooms were kept immaculate, with the air con keeping them always cool from a day in the intense Miami heat. I've already recommended this hotel to many fellow travellers and hopefully we will also be back to South Beach soon, thank you again The Betsy for a fantastic holiday.
