“A little gem in between the luxury towers in North Miami”
Reviewed 7 April 2013

We were forced to find new accomodations at short notice when we arrived at another very unsuitable hotel further south. We had the choice of three different size rooms and were shown each one before deciding on a one bedroom villa with a direct view to the beach. Or appartment was situated on the second floor and was so peacefull, clean and relaxing. We had our own full kitchen, but ussually just had breakfast in, as there are many good restuarants in the area. This hotel has a long history and has been home to famous celebrities of the past. It,s one of the few art deco style places left along the Sunny Isles Beach area as it is a time share condo and the owners wont be selling to Trump soon. It has a very well priced and excellent Italian restuarant, a beauty salon and free beach chairs, car parking, fitness center and is just across the road from Starbucks and other cafes. We loved our stay here and would recommend it to people who just like relaxed, friendly and clean simple style family atmoshperes.

Room Tip: Maybe dont choose the rooms near the laundry area as the gas dryers let off a gas smell during the d...

Charming full service resort in an ideal location. The layout and grounds of the resort are 4* caliber and feel like all inclusive resort in the Carribean. The rooms are 3* with 4* views but are clean, comfortable and functional. The pool is big and warm even on cold Florida nights. The only thing missing is a hot tub. There is ping pong by the pool, shuffleboard by the beach volleyball and plenty of beach and pool lounge chairs with cushion and umbrella service. The staff are friendly and clearly enjoy their jobs. The on premises Italian restaurant Azzurro Has a tiki bar by the pool and serves reasonable and tasty 7$ lunches. It is an excellent resturant for dining aswell however the price goes up at night with entrees from 20 to 35$. The 10$ daily resort fee is well worth it to have cushion and umbrella service with a smile for a 1-2$ tip. With a Publix supermarket, McDonald's, Starbucks, and many fine restaurants a short walk away, you need not even rent a car. If you do however, parking is only 20$ a week! Because it is a timeshare property that also acts as a hotel with unused rooms, the decor is only refreshed at the will of the owners, but if you are like us, you will spend most of your time at the beach or by the pool. I highly recommend this property for family vacations.

This was our first visit to this resort. We traded into it using our timeshare. It's an older resort, but well kept, clean and comfortable and ... right on the beach! The customer service we received here was simply exceptional. Sandra and Edwige at the front desk went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. When we were a little disappointed with our unit, they saw to it that we were moved to a more acceptable unit. We were simply overwhelmed with their efficiency and helpfulness. Even down to a little thing like coffee. We asked at the front desk where we might be able to purchase some coffee without having to take the car out. They gave us some coffee to tide us over until the next day, so we didn't have to go out. It was so pleasant talking with them and they started our week-long vacation off with a positive note that is much, much appreciate. Our thanks to Sandra and Edwige!

Room Tip: The one bedroom units are like a home away from home.

Came here with my partner who owns at this resort and aside from the lack of parking and rather lame "game room" very quite at night and wonderful views during the day! It will be a shame if this place is sold to make room for a huge tower like the ones on either side of the golden strand!

After reading so many negative reviews we were just hoping for the best. We stayed in a 1 bedroom unit 5102. Directly facing the ocean. Beautiful views even being that it was a first floor unit. More than enough room. Everything was very clean and I am very picky! Had coffee on the patio each morning. Could even see the ocean from the loveseat. New furniture was very nice. Check in was fast. Had problems with the key cards but they replaced them each time. Everything in walking distance. Never had to park across the street. The only complaint would be the amenity fees. We did sit on the beach each day, however no one came over to offer a chair pad. Had to track someone down to get one at the pool. Other than that the staff was very friendly.
