Bad Stuff: added 18% tip so food service is AWFUL (so is food for that matter). Not close to action at all. Housekeeping rips through hotel very early every morning extremely loud. Walls are extremely thin. There is NO PLACE to get a simple bottle of water in this entire hotel (nothing convenient-no little store in here or anywhere close) other than ordering their extremely overpriced room service.

Good Stuff: private beach that's very lovely, clean hotel. Front desk and staff are very nice!

Room Tip: We stayed in the lowest possible room and it was LOVELY! Super impressed with how nice their rooms...

Thank you for your review of our hotel. We strive very hard to ensure a great dining experience for all our guests and I am sorry to hear that yours was less than satisfactory. As in every hotel, the room attendants are in the halls early in the morning. Their impact to our guests should be negligible and we will look into this situation.Please note that bottled water is available in a number of our outlets and in the boutique. Complimentary infused water is also available in the lobby and poolside.

We spent 3 nights here and what a great 3 nights they were. Suites were spotlessly clean, modern and had all required mod cons. Very impressive foyer, bar, pool area. Staff very helpful and polite. Bit of a walk into downtown Miami along the boardwalk especially if hot but taxi only $10. Hotal restaurant served great food at reasonable prices. (but try Italian Restuarant Tiramisu in Lincoln Avenue/17th St) If we are lucky enough to return to Miami the Grand Beach would be the hotel that I book.

We booked a king suite with partial ocean views for week's stay here. Room was lovely, views were magnificent and stay was very comfortable. Location is a bit limiting as there is nothing apart from other hotels and condos in the area. South beach is bus ride or $10 taxi ride away. Recommend the room service, and for a captive market, congratulate the hotel on its reasonable prices. Recommend a stay here for relaxing time out.

This hotel is amazing! Once inside the suite is all white has a sitting area and a bed area. The whole suite is white and very clean!
The only bad thing........you have to take a bus to any kind of decent restaurant........every half hour ..........and no pop machines on premises...We took a bus for supper and thought we could get a diet coke for after........no.........not here............

This hotel has a huge amount of recently written reviews, so I try to concentrate on those issues that I haven't seen mentioned yet.

The gym is very well equipped, in addition to the machines there are also free weights available. Many cardio machines. On 4 days a week there were 2 gym classes during the morning. These were very good and free for the guests. I don't know if they take place during the whole year (we visited the hotel in July). Towels and water available in the gym. If you want to jog outside, the broadwalk begins at 46th street, which is about 500m from the hotel. A lot of joggers in the mornings!

As previous writers have mentioned, you need a taxi or a bus many times during your stay. Bus service is excellent, line S runs every 20 minutes (we waited max 15min) and costs 2$ (you need to have exact sum) and the bus stop is right in front of the hotel. We drove to Aventura Mall, it took 45min. Bal Harbour Shops also along the line. We also drove to downtown Miami, to Bayside Marketplace, this took also 45min. So I really encourage to use the bus! S line also drives though Lincoln Road. We once walked there, it took 50min brisk walking.

House keeping is really efficient. Fresh towels available by the pools. No bottled water available but there were nice water tanks containing melon, pineapple, strawberries, etc that you could use and fill your water bottle. Drinking water stations available at least in the gym and 7th floor lobby. I don't know if every floor had an ice station, but our floor (16th) at least had one.

7th floor adults pool very nice. There were always sun beds available. Once I saw a teenager being asked to leave the pool.

Express checkout very efficient: if you are happy with the bill they provide you with, just leave the keys to the box. Breakfast cost 22€. I saw people queueing to the breakfast at 10 o´clock during the weekend (breakfast is until 11 o´clock). We went earlier and then it was ok.

We stayed in one bedroom suite. Some people have complained about the sofa bed, but our girls found it ok. The mattress is a bit thin, but they didn't find it problematic. The room had a fridge and a coffee machine. House keeping kept filling the coffee, which was nice. I was also able to make tea by taking the filter off and putting the mug in the coffee machine. The room was very quiet and I heard no noise during night time.

So, we really really liked the hotel and our stay. The big but is eating, especially when you have children/teenagers. We ate lunch three times at Chez Gaston. First time the food was cold and taste was quite bad, second time was very good, third time it took a very long time and they had run out of pasta bolognese and the waiter only told us this when we ordered. Strange. Part of the problem is, that lunch closed at 3PM and dinner begins at 6PM. Where are we supposed to eat if we get hungry between 3 and 6? We decided to stock our fridge with food: there is a supermarket on 41st street (25min walk).

If you want a full service hotel where you can have something to eat whenever you want, don't choose this hotel. If you are willing to plan your day so that you eat when the restaurant is open and/or are ready to have snacks in your rooms, this hotel is an excellent choice.

Thank you for having stayed with us at the Grand Beach Hotel on Miami Beach! Your kind comments are appreciated and thank you for giving us an excellent review. You had mentioned that the restaurant was closed from 3 to 6 pm; in actuality we are indeed open in Chez Gaston and serving a lighter fare menu during that time frame. The information on the TV in the rooms implies that we are closed during these hours. This has since been changed and I appreciate this being brought to my attention. Once again, thank you so much for joining us and for the great review! Looking forward to seeing you again soon.

We are a family of four and we reserved a two beds suite. We got a king bed and a sleeper sofa. It was impossible for my two kids to sleep on the sleeper sofa. The reception was unable to handle our request.

This Hotel was fantastic. Clean, Clean, Clean. Huge and Spacious Rooms with a great view of the ocean and the Bay. Housekeeping was very thorough and consistent. The staff was nice, friendly, and at times very humorous. I didn't care for the $29 a night valet only service, but with the hotels location I do understand it. Its worth it though because it never took more than 5 minutes to get our car. Grand Beach Hotel needs another restaurant that offers medium child-friendly food open through the night. Chez Gaston was good, but very pricey and not child friendly ($18 for a gourmet burger - "my kids wouldnt eat that"). We found ourselves going down to South Beach and North Beach to get our comfort food. I would say they also need a shuttle service to South Beach as parking is just brutal down there. Room service boggled our order one evening about 3:00AM and I reported it, the Hospitality manager was at our door personally that evening with a personalized card, a tray of deserts, and a warm apology. That made my wife extremely happy. Overall, we had a great experience. We stayed a week and I will not complain one bit about any facet of the hotel. We received our money's worth plus... I am happy we chose the Grand Beach Hotel, and on our last evening we were already planning what we would do on our next stay there. Thanks Grand Beach, I'm raving about you guys to all my friends. Honestly, I am... I'm a blogger, so you will get many great reviews from me.
