I booked a room (2 bedroom suite) at the Casanova Suites based on the reviews from this site and the pictures of the hotel from another. I was very disappointed in the overall experience. The hotel lobby is in the basement, very tiny and not in good shape. There are really no normal hotel amenities available. The man at the front desk had rips in his jeans and in the crotch area...very inappropriate. The hotel smelled moldy, the walls look like they hadn't been painted in over 10 years. When we got to the room, I must say it was big. However, there were all sorts of stains on the curtains and my teenage daughters found a bunch of used condoms under the bed. Ewww!!!!! All in all, it was a less than enjoyable stay.

We stayed three days before the weekend and we had an enjoyable stay(business), the suites were beautiful (as shown on the pictures) everything was walking distance, there is a restaurant on the second floor (food was fine) recommend a mini-market that is like 2 blocks from there(if you are planning to save) . I stayed with a partner on the two bedroom two bath suite, very spacious, roomy with a great decoration; excellent place to go with friends or if you have a big family. The staff was great, knowledgeable of the area and professional, we had the experience to meet the manager, very courteous and amiable. I would definitely recommend this place not only for the location, but for the unbelievable suites, and the prices that you pay for which it cannot be beaten by any other hotel in south beach.

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.
