My wife and children were there for just one night pre-cruise. My kid's mouths dropped on seeing the crowds, the beach, the decor. They thought they were in a movie set. If you've read other reviews you know that this is no luxury hotel: it's very modest. But it's got all this 1930's feel to it that makes it really fun to be there. The staff was friendly and helpful in every respect: beach towels, a place to keep bags before check-in, even umbrellas during a downpour. Rooms were fine and were a lot quieter than we expected. We were a little disconcerted to find a female guest passed out in the hallway early in the morning, but my kids thought it was funny and pinned a note to her that said "Get better friends!".
There's probably no better location on Miami Beach. We'll be back!
