“OK Condo Experience in Sunny Isles”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

With the exception of a few things that are detailed later in this review, we had a good stay at the Miami Beach Intracoastal. We arrived to Miami a few hours earlier than the 4pm check in but the staff accommodated us and allowed us to check in at 2pm. The unit was clean and complete with most amenities. We have no complaints about noise as other reviewers have mentioned. We were in town for a family reunion at the Newport Beachside Hotel, and after seeing that place I am glad we chose to stay offsite! The building is about a 10 minute walk to the beach access on Collins Blvd and if you are particularly ambitious you can also walk about a mile (either on the beach or on Collins) to Haulover Park, which is a nice county park on the beach, although I will caution you that it is right next to a nude beach (LOL!! funny sights during my morning beach run!). It's also close to the Aventura Mall (about 15 min drive) and walking distance to everything on Collins. I do have three complaints, however, which prevent me from rating this place 5 stars:
1) We were expecting two twin beds in the second bedroom but instead had a full bed and a leather futon. My two teens switched beds for the 4 nights we were there because they said the futon was uncomfortable so it was not fair to have one person sleep on the futon every night.
2) You are instructed to leave the unit as you found it which is completely fine, but the management does not provide you with the tools to do so. No broom or cleaning supplies were in the unit. We did the best we could with what we had.
3) The appliances/electronics in the unit could be better. The washer and dryer were old and the dryer in particular needed to be replaced. It did not dry our clothes even after four 1-hour cycles (really??). Also the water heater was VERY small so we had to take 3 minute showers! TV reception was not good and this would not have been an issue at any other time but since we were there during the semi-finals and finals for the World Cup it was a big deal to my sports-crazy family.

With the exception of the above three complaints, we had a satisfactory stay and I would stay again, but the next time I will call ahead to make sure I have the unit I actually reserved.

Room Tip: Call ahead to make sure you are getting the unit that you reserved.

I was full of anticipation, being the first time we had stayed in an apartment.
We usually choose hotels and like the fact that we don't have to make beds or cook, so this was going to be different.
Because we arrived early evening Friday there wasn't anybody to contact until Monday morning
at 9.00am which I found strange, all we had was an emergency phone number.
After booking and we were contacted by Anna to say we could upgrade for a discounted fee,we agreed and paid.
We were lead to believe that we had paid for a superior apartment,but thats not what we found everything about this apartment was cheap.
The pool area didn't have a bar or restaurant and was full of noisy children.
The only good point was the valet parking,and the beach (Newport Pier) was a 10 min walk.

  • Liked — valet parking, beach close by

As feedback to a previous comment on very noisy dogs. We stayed for a whole month and only heard dogs barking twice. If you close the windows and put the aircon on, it blocks out dogs and traffic. The location is excellent with access both from Collins via 172nd St and N Bay Rd as well as Sunny Isles Blvd. There are lots of restaurants and Deli's nearby with gourmet take aways. We had a few hiccups with the wi-fi and the aircon the first week but Jean was very proactive in resolving the issues. The bedding and towels look quite new and smell fresh. My only real complaint is that the blinds let through a lot of light so we could not sleep in. However I will definitely come back and recommend Global Quarters in Miami for the good value and comfort provided.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor

A really nice and warm option to stay at Miami. If you re looking for an option to stay with a lot of contort and a place like home, I would recommend to select Globe Quarters and Intracoastal Yatch Club as the perfect option. Near from the most interesting shopping areas and the beach.

Don't expect to arrive to a hotel... But it's kind of one. We got te keys from Jean upon arrival in the global one's suite. He showed us the premises, pool, spa etc. then showed us the apartment. It was recently renewed and clean. You get towels, shampoo, soap, coffee...You have washing and dryer machines in the apartment (with the necessary products) for no extra cost. Some people complain about waiting for the valet parking. We had no problems at all with that. There's plenty of groceries around and is close to restaurants. The beach is at walking distance.

Located just a short walking distance from the beach and close to shops and restaurants. Valet parking, pool, heated tub, BBQ area, gym, a small shop, concierge, etc - all that you need without paying top dollar.

Room Tip: Rooms with ocean views are the best

Good value for money. Good location close to shopping and beach. Clean, modern and spacious ++ apartment with a big balcony where you can relax and enjoy the beautiful sea view. The children have a lot of space inside to play.
The apartment has everything you need and is fully equipped with microwave, washing machine, refrigerator with freezer, flat screens, bathtub, cable-tv...
Wifi is complimentary. So is the pool and gym area. We will come back and can recommend this hotel to families with children.

Room Tip: Ask for an apartment on the seaward side
