1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2009

this hotel is not on the beach, the pool is under construction--not enough room---definatley not a big enough dining table---staff knows nothing esp. when it somes to getting refunds---had to get a different hotel--had children when room was booked--but this is definatley not a place for kids----especially with half-nude pics on the wall of this particular room--had nipple and everything--room sucked!!! no remote for tv and very small balcony--oh but who cares when you take a risk of getting hit by the vistors in the opposite hotel flinging beer cans on the top of this hotel from the balcony of their hotel?????bad bad experience for my kids!!!oh yeah almost forgot--valet parking only--for $30.00 a night!!!!!!!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2009

After reading the reviews and not having any traveller's pictures to look at - I decided to book 3 nights at the Casanova Suites on the Beach. When we first arrived to the hotel we were greeted by hotel staff and escorted up to our room. The elevator was not working on our first day there so we had to take the stairs up to our room. The stairs were old and needed to be renovated. Judging by the stairs myself and my friends were scared about what our room would look like. When we entered our room - we were surprised that it looked exactly like the professional pictures. The suite was spacious, the beds/pull-out sofa were comfortable and cozy, and the bathroom was clean. The kitchen came fully stocked with beverages and food which were available for purchase.

The hotel was right across from the beach and located next to frequent restaurants/lounges and bars. I would highly recommend the hotel to all travellers.

This hotel was amazing!!! My stay at the Casanova was nothing but a pleasure and the perfect get away for a weekend. The atmosphere, rooms, and staff are outstanding!! The room is breathtaking and the only one of its kind on south beach, if you're looking for a lot of space this is the hotel for you! The beds are huge and very comfortable, and with a full kitchen equipped with all of the essentials, two full baths there is no other hotel like it. I will definetly visit the Casanova again and my return visit to South Beach will include the Casanova with out a doubt. This hotel is clean, new, and a great location for all of your vacation needs. There is also an amazing bar/lounge/resturant that I would reccommend to anyone! If you are looking for a great vacation like my friends and I where, then you better book the Casanova Suites, the best deal on the beach!!!!!!!!!!

Good place from Sunday-Thursday nights. The weekend, don't think that you will get any sleep, the hotel endorses college aged kids, drinking & partying...it's South Beach! The 2 Bdrm Suite is worth
the money it is very spacious. Beds are comfortable, bath = clean.
Management not attentive, so party down! They don't seem to care or try to accommodate you. I was told to knock on the door next door & tell them to turn it down at 4AM in the morning! The neighbors finally went to sleep at 6AM.

I wanted to let readers know that the owner did do the right thing here and is in the process of refunding our $700 stay since our earlier posting on 4/10; though we will not stay here again, we appreciated his attention to and consideration of this sensitve matter.

CasanovaSuites, Manager at The Fritz Hotel, responded to this review, 7 March 2010
Dear readers,

I am the current manager of Casanova Suites and I would like to explain some important changes. The property has been under new management and different name since August 2008. Please disregard all reviews posted on 2005 and 2006 when the property was under different management and different name. During those years, the property was called Suites 524. Please be sure that all the team at Casanova Suites has put a lot of effort to change the image and provide the best service possible.

Thank you for your understanding and hope to see you soon!!

Best regards,

Camilo Matarraz
Hotel Manager
