My boyfriend and I stayed here for four nights a week before Christmas 2011. My mother is a member of Blue Green so we used points to stay here. Our expectations were surpassed. Our room was huge, 1 bedroom apartment style: open family room, nice sized balcony, full kitchen, walk in closet..very spacious and homey feeling. We had a nice view of the pool/ocean. Junior at the front desk was amazing and very helpful/welcoming. We still talk about him from time to time. There is a publix and walgreens a few blocks away, you can walk, which we did, but with bags it can be a little bit of a stretch. We are in our mid-20s so we enjoyed the walking aspect. It is quite away from the normal hustle and bustle of SoBe, but fortunately we had a friend who drove us around to the hip spots. The fact the beach is right behind the property was awesome, we went everyday and relaxed on the lounge chairs that are provided free of charge. We would definitely stay here again.

We spent 2 weeks at the Solara Surfide hotel and had a wonderful stay. We knew the location before, and liked the idea of being close to Sobe but in a peaceful place and that it was. Right on the beach, just a few steps among the palm trees and we were in the beautiful sandy beach. The 1 bedroom apt was very big, first week we had an apt at the 3rd floor, lateral sea view (the front sea view are 2 bedrooms apts), 1 bathroom and half, balcony, nice and bright. Second week even better: 6th floor corner unit (610) with lateral sea view and front downtown-bay view, wonderful!
Publix, Walgreens and restaurants and bars are located all around the 94th street and Harding Av, so 6 blocks from the hotel, there are several busses (L,S,G,H) going there but the line S (also known as 119) is the only one that stops in front of the hotel and goes all the way through Aventura Mall going North or going South to Downtown passing through Sobe and stops in Harding Av and 88th Street ( one block from the hotel), price 2 USD. It takes 15-20 minutes to South Beach and even less to Aventura.
Beach chairs and bbq available without charge for the guests.
The staff was very nice, especially Mr. Junior at the reception, always helpful and kind. There is internet wifi in the rooms.
Perfect solution for a complete relax!

We stayed at Solara Surfside for a couple of days both before and after a cruise out of Miami. The resort exceeded our expectations. We stayed in a large 1 bedroom with an ocean view. It had large rooms, enormous walk-in closets and a large kitchen. The grounds were beautiful and included sand volleyball, an outdoor pool and hot tub, grills and picnic tables, beach access, etc. The view was amazing. There are walking/running trails that go in both directions along the beach. The staff was helpful and friendly. We will be going back!

The staff was not very helpful in planning activities or tours. We found out after our Everglades tour that we could have gone for about half the price by using a different company than the one they suggest. Also if you've already rented a car it is much less expensive to drive yourself to the tour pick up spots than to have the bus pick you up at the hotel. We spent about 4 hours on the bus driving to other hotels to pick people up then to the tour hub for bus transfers then out to the Everglades for a tour that only lasted 20 minutes.
The rooms do not have Wi-Fi and if you want to use the internet they have one computer on the lobby level that everyone uses. You will have to wait in line and the internet service is so slow i wonder if they still have dial up.
Our room was ok but you have no control over the themastat.
The best thing about this resort is that it is so close to the beach.

Room Tip: Recommend the ocean view rooms.

Like other reviewers, our experience with Solara Surfside was very positive. I will admit, having above average temperatures, daily sunshine & nothing to do but relax, made our stay a fine way to start our winter away from MA. Our corner 1 bedroom was HUGE. I think it was previously an apt. complex as our room had a storage closet (room) which was large enough for a child to sleep if you had an inflatable mattress! The staff is very helpful, a welcoming & helpful concierge, beautiful beachfront property with beach attendants who get you settled into lounge chairs with umbrellas. The propery is along the beach walk which is a picturesque walk along the various hotels/resorts. You pay for valet parking, but once your car is in the garage, you have easy access to it for forgotten items stored in the car. The bus route is in front of the resort & with parking lots at a premium, taking the inexpensive bus is the way to go out & about. We'd stay there again prior to cruising in the future.

We visit Solara Surfside Resort every April for 1 week. The unit we stay in is a 2 bedroom, ocean view with 2 balconies. The view is breathtaking. The unit is huge, roomy, clean, bright, breezy, well stocked....simply heaven. The property has a pool, a large deck area with tables, a garden area with lounges and bbq grills, and a short walk to the ocean. There is a walking/jogging/bike trail right between the property and the ocean. This area is mostly residential so it is quiet. We walk to the supermarket (Publics) to get all of our food. There are great restaurants within walking distance and nightlife a bit farther toward South Beach. This part of Miami has become my favorite spring getaway. The staff is helpful and friendly. The hotel is small so it has a homey atmosphere. If you can get an ocean front/view unit it is so worth the effort.

Room Tip: Bluegreen property so you must reserve room 11 months in advance, ocean front are the best!
