Took my wife here to celebrate her graduation We walked into our room after check in and found a repulsive giant toe nail on the floor First night here the hot water didn’t work until after 11pm

The rooms look nice from pictures but when we got into our room there was cheap vinyl flooring which was coming up and the shower had poor pressure The only staff we encountered that was actually pleasant was a woman at the lobby bar On the positive note, location is pretty great, mattress was super comfortable and the property itself is beautiful

Rosa Menendez

Our staycation at Grand Beach Surfside was phenomenal from beginning to end The customer service is really spectacular Tyler at the front desk is superb and so kind, she really understands hospitality

She made us feel so welcomed and set the tone for our marvelous stay Our room was perfect- two balconies and ocean and city views The beach was awesome as were the pools The food was so delicious, we ordered room service and dined at the restaurant as well The shrimp cocktail and crab cakes were incredible as were the pasta and breakfast items We are counting the days until we return Tyler, Tyler, Tyler!

The hotel is lovely but the staff is lacking We received two text messages welcoming us to the hotel and inquiring about our stay so far When we got to the hotel (after 4pm check in time) we were told our room wasn’t ready

We waited over 2 hours for our room, and when I asked if we could check out late for the inconvenience we were met with lots of resistanceWe finally got a 2pm check out it experience poor service at the beach, couldn’t never get room service on the phone and one day a random person was in our room looking for housekeeping/toiletriesAlso the sink in the room is terrible The basin is very shallow and the water pressure is on high, so every time you turn it on you and everything around the sink gets soakedThey appear understaffed but for the amount of money they charge a night it’s unacceptable I spoke to both Nia and Carlos and they weren’t helpful at all Don’t stay here

From the moment Valery checked me in, I felt welcome She was very sweet and I loved her personal attention It’s the little things, like remembering my name, that makes a guest feel even more welcome

Gigi and Jeannette took care of me at The Bistro, as did Chef Angelo It definitely is a place to Eat, Drink and Connect That’s how the website describes The Bistro, and it’s actually true I’ll definitely return to this Courtyard

Danielle Muriel

Lovely hotel Rooms and bathrooms are clean and modern It’s quiet

We stayed for 3 nights, this hotel was great for the price Across the street from the beach, having chairs and towels was nice which was included in the resort fee The breakfast was good for a quick bite

The room was clean, there is daily room service we chose not to use it for a few days just requested for new linens Parking garage was underneath the hotel for a fee but better then looking for street parking I’d recommend this hotel and we would def stay again here

Donnell Mitchell

The room we stayed in was spacious, nice and clean The hotel made sure that we had everything we neededI liked the location of the hotel

It wasn’t in the heart of everything ,but very short access to everythingOnly wish they had more breakfast options Enjoyed the fact, that they had bikes that you could get if you wanted to ride alone the beach

Desiree Steely

I stayed at this hotel and will be going back anytime I stay in Miami, it was the best!When I checked in Christophe greeted me and was so welcoming I immediately felt comfortable and at home Christophe made sure I was completely taken care of and was so personable and kind I travel often and have stayed at many Marriott properties around the world and the hospitality at this property was one of a kind

Beautiful pool and courtyard for lounging Complimentary beach chairs and umbrellas for nice ocean days The room was so spacious and modern Room temperature could be changed within minutes Breakfast was hearty and delicious Location of this hotel was perfect for a night in Miami and then back to a nice quiet safe SurfsideI absolutely loved it!

Positives: This place is absolutely beautiful Clean Housekeeping and front desk were super nice

Pending the laundry issue, I would definitely stay here againNegatives: no microwave in the room and the laundry for guests is broken We were staying as a family of 4 for a week So this absolutely disrupted our stay I had to lug loads of dirty laundry to a friend’s house one day Between kids, beaches and the heat, accessing laundry was an absolute must Had I known this before booking I would have honestly stayed somewhere else The restaurant was INSANELY expensive We caught a red eye and checked in off our flight (not early, we paid for the room the day before), I purchased on side of pancakes and one bagel it ran me $30!!!! First and last experience at this restaurant I was so tired I honestly didn’t feel like questioning why it cost so much more than the menu stated, I just needed some sleep

LeAsha Renee

It’s ALWAYS a great experience when I come to town and stay here!!! I have stayed here 3 different times since August & it’s always nice, clean & very homey feeling especially since I am almost never comfortable in hotels I never have any issues and my rooms are always clean The front desk and bar staff are always nice and accommodating

Rhonda Cadugan

I love this Hilton Even more than the diplomat Real 5 star service

Real chefs, food looks amazing and the flavors to match Rooms are so new and fresh Great designs The covered yoga area is a great space to relax Cute cabanas at the pool First come first serveIf you want the best pool side rooms Ask to be on either floor 7, or 8 I’ve now stayed in 3 different rooms All 100% to my liking Pool side is my favorite

Kristin Graves

We loved everything about the JW Turnberry The moment we walked into the property we were welcomed by the friendliest bellhop He guided us to our room and gave us a great tour of the amenities on the way

We had one very small concern about our room and they sent housekeeping immediately Once again, the staff was cordial and niceThe Tidal Wave (water park) was fun It was a adult only trip and even we enjoyed it But I will say, the adult only pool with towel service was my favorite part (and their staff was amazing too)!You know it’s a great stay when you don’t want to leave This resort truly knows how to treat their guests and maintain a beautiful property I have no doubt we’ll be back again!

Thomas Ryan-Lawrence

Don’t waste your money if you’re going for the water parkThe entire reason we stayed at the Turnberry Resort was to enjoy the water park with our eight year old son We were in town last Thanksgiving and stayed off-site, but visited the park twice and had a wonderful time

Unfortunately, for a park with a capacity of over 3800 people, it is apparently acceptable to have only fifteen tubes for the upper two rides We spoke with management, who didn’t seem to be all that concerned and even said “that’s the way it’s always been” When we in formed him it was not our first time at the resort, the response was “well, that’s what it is”At this point, I don’t believe we could recommend Turnberry for that reason alone It is quite more expensive than other hotels in the area and when you can’t even use the main attraction, it’s kind of pointless Also, the staff seemed more concerned about pleasing the special parties each day than addressing concerns of patrons who were staying at the hotelThis was one of my worst experiences with a Marriott to date

Annette Herrera

We have stayed here twice and have enjoyed their water park both times & absolutely love it here! Looking forward to being back soon The pools, the slides & the lazy river are great too Hotel and Pool/park area are well maintained & clean

All staff members have been welcoming & accommodatingThe only reason why I am giving them a four star is because I feel like there should be a different system for outside guests The first time we went, there were so many non guests in the pool area that a lot of the hotel guests had nowhere to sit I feel like hotel guests should have priority

Dylan Young

Love the location of this Residence Inn, very close to Aventura mall with lots to do there (over 300 shops/restaurants)Front desk workers do make you feel at home and comfortable (especially as MARRIOTT member)

$20 per car for use of their parking lot, but it is secured / lighted and has camerasCorner suites are super nice, spacious and include a lot of amenitiesWill definitely be back to this location for sure


The hotel was exceptionally clean and quiet The facility is up to date and well maintained We stayed on the 8th floor and there was very little noise

The housekeeping staff should be commended Parking is behind a gate in the adjacent lot There is a nearby Publix if you need to pick up drinks and food Breakfast was adequate The Hard Rock Stadium is about 20 minutes away so this is a good location for events over there

Sarah Bennett

We called to check room sizes they told us the 2bdrms suits were 1 king bed and the second room was 2 queen bedsWhen we got to our room there were only 2 beds in total Then they refused to refund us our money because it was within 24hrs of checking in

Even though we just booked it She said the couch counted as a 3rd bed$2200- we spent and we are now sleeping on the floor

My fiancé and I visited this hotel to see the venue there We are having our wedding there and seeing the venue in person made us very happy with our choiceWe stayed in a one bedroom suite with a full kitchen, dinette, living room and spacious bathroom

The hotel is very clean which is extremely important to me The staff is so helpful and friendly Director of Sales Melanie gave us exceptional hospitality, we felt so special on our entire stay! The Chef- William, was also Amazing and his food was absolutely delicious! We can’t wait to be there in July for our Wedding, we know that we will have a great team from The DoubleTree helping us to make our special day extraordinary!


Rooms are very spacious! The hotel is clean, although needs renovation and the “pool” is really a kiddie poolbut! The location on the beach is priceless!!! They have a tiki bar and small food shop downstairs, plus great service at the beach, very convenient and hustle free

And, there is Starbucks, Cuban coffee, full supermarket and many more food options across the street on Collins and within walking distance You really don’t need a car in Sunny Isles


This is a rear thing when I’m writing a negative review, but this one should be written as my experience at this resort turned out unpleasant1 The rooms are not prepared for visitors

The a/c did not work It was super loud and did not cool down the room as expected2 Another room they moved us, in did not have the extra lock which was suppose to be there3 The sink was leaking which caused the constant noise, but never fixed during our stay4 Umbrella costs extra $20 a day and is not included in the resort fee5 The staff is not welcoming, neither helpful, I tried to call to service desk many times to resolve the ongoing issues described above, but had to go downstairs as they did not pick up6 No restaurant on site No breakfast7 I didn’t have a chance to use them, but tiki bar is closing at 5 pm so might be good to know for those who don’t drink earlier :)8 Dirty hallways See the picturesAnd so on and so on…I am a Hilton honor member Believe me that worth nothing at that resort Not worth the money

I really enjoyed the hospitality and great customer service from Gabby and Ovy They both were really friendly, provided quick, and efficient service The hotel was located right next to the beach walking distance

The hotel provides beach towels, umbrellas, and chairs There are restaurants in walking distance of the hotel that were great The room was clean and up to par The bed and pillows were comfortable The cleaning service woman was very helpful in changing sheets due to a personal accident There were very accommodating and answered questions in a professional manner I was able to check in earlier than expected and leave my luggage with them safely until I return upon check out I truly consider someone to stay at this hotel if you were looking for a private quiet and pleasant stay in North Beach Miami

Hope Marshall

Cute hotel, in a good location; walkable to most “incidentals” (supermarket, bus stops, coffee shops) Also, a short walk to the beach If you’re big on opulence, this probably isn’t the place for you, as it is more functional than it is “pretty”

It is as if someone fixed up their spare bedroom real nice for you – but that’s part of the charm The only minor annoyance: (1) wish there were mini blinds at the rooms’ window, instead of a pull-down shade, as this would let more natural light in while maintaining privacy; (2) not having a shower caddy or someplace to rest your items while in the bath Overall, I had a good stay, and would recommend

Cleveland Street Preachers

THESE EVIL PEOPLE AT THIS HOTEL TOOK MY MONEY! I travel a lot and this was a terrible experience I’m usually not that picky with hotels, but this place was full of evil people that work there When I went there, there were tiny bugs everywhere

They had a man come and “spray” the bugs, and he put maybe a couple squirts on some baseboards That’s it They offered a different room and when they did the room smelled like smoke, so I asked for another room They didn’t have any, so I wanted a refund for the remaining nights I couldn’t use and they refused to refund me! Called hotelscom and they spoke to the owner and he didn’t care! They essentially robbed me! I left and found another hotel because I wasn’t going to sleep in a room with bugs and deal with shady people that only cared about liability These people here are very evil! Don’t do business with these wicked people

The staffs, especially the reservation manager and front desk concierge, were wonderful and helpful with professionalism Customer service was great all aroundEven though room and lobby were not super luxurious, they were spacious and very clean, exactly as advertised

Pool was decent, not crowed Access to the beach was easyThis hotel truly reminds you that you are on vacationDefinitely worth considering if you are in mid beach !

jones Mcgee

This hotel located in Bal Harbour has a nice pool with easy beach access It was a very quiet hotel They have workers in the pool area that will set you up for the pool or the beach

The pool servicemen were very nice and accommodating The area is quiet and about 1-3 blocks from restaurants and the Shops at Bal Harbour Their workout room is dated and could use a revamping I made it work while I was there but they could easily discard half of their equipment I would stay here again

Wendy Allen

We stayed here the day my husband proposed The property is old, but lends to charm The rooms are updated and big

The bar gets crowded at dinner time and the beach is literally right there off the huge pool The prices are very reasonable for the area Parking is extra We will come back again and again Good value and customer service

Gorgeous hotel Exceptional service From the moment you walk in, you can feel the luxury and the experience that comes with

Robert Gallione

Been coming here for many years, hotel is a really nice but the service has gone very very down hill Below are the issues that occurred during my latest stay:- Had many issues with my AC which took multiple days to resolve Room was 85 degrees

They sent a “engineer” to fix the AC on night 1, he said he fixed the AC Woke up sweating bullets, AC was not fixed Called back night 2 in the morning, they sent another 2 “engineers” who said they fixed the problem Got back to the room after being at the Day Villa we paid 650$ for to avoid being in a hot room & the AC was still not fixed, still 85 degrees I asked for a new room and they denied my request and gave me a 600$ credit The room was well over $600 a night so I find this very unfair I gave up at this point as I just wanted to try to enjoy my vacation My fiancé has asthma and was having breathing problems due to how hot the room was at this point We decided not to stay after night 2 even though we had 3 nights- Booked a 90 minute massage before arriving online Upon arrival we decided we’d like to get a couples massage so I attempted to call the Spa to change this They did not answer there phones for 2 days I called the front desk multiple times and explained the situation, they just forwarded my call to the Spa who did not answer the phone again and again Finally only 2 hours before my massage, they called The lady who called me was very rude and said they can move it as a “courtesy” however they only had one time slot available for a couples massage and we already had plans to leave at this point and go to a different hotel Because of this, I asked to cancel and they said they will still have to charge me the full price of the massage + 20% to cancel They said they’ve been trying to reach me for the past two days so it’s not there fault There’s no way they were trying to reach me, I’ve received numerous calls from the hotel which I’ve answered and had no communication problems whatsoeverI’ve stayed at many different St Regis hotels around the United States and I’ve never dealt with this kind of service St Regis Atlanta for example which I stayed at only a few months ago was an absolute joy, and the service was fantastic If you are vacationing to Miami, I highly recommend checking out other options as you will definitely be disappointed as this hotel does not live up to the St Regis brand

Beautiful large hotel close to the beach in Miami Stayed here before the pandemicThe good:- Beautiful, clean rooms with gorgeous views of the ocean

– Luxurious, tropical feel- Great location for visiting the beachThe not so good:- Service was below 5 star / 5 diamond standards- Pool complex could be biggerI know some people say the rooms are a little dated, but they are clean and well appointed If you want an ultra-modern hotel, you may want to stay somewhere else The location is amazing, as it is right on the beach Walk out from the pool complex right out onto the beachService was a little below standard for a hotel of this class The hotel didn’t seem all that busy when I stayed here, but getting a service request completed took a long time Also, the pool complex is nothing special While most people do go out onto the beach, the privacy of the pool can be enjoyable, especially at night I feel a little let down in that regardOverall, great location, gorgeous views, nice rooms, and lacking a bit in the service department I prefer this hotel over the Savoy For the price, you might be able to do a little better, but you could also do a lot worseRooms with ocean views are highly recommended

Hands down, this is a 6 star stay From the second you pull up, to the moment you leave, they are they for you every step The most accommodating stay ever

The rooms were the best of the best The view was surreal The food was emotionally amazing, seriously I can’t stop thinking about how good the food was They went above and beyond to make our stay nothing less then perfect Can’t wait to go back

From the moment we walked in and were greeted by Ashley and Carlo at the front desk who welcomed my wife and I with a warm smile and made us feel at home For many years we were loyal St Regis Bal Harbor guests and we recently unhappy wanting a change As a titanium elite member, each day of our stay we kept asking ourselves, “why haven’t we stayed here before?”

Incredible top notch service Every team member must have had “customer service training” Par excellence Highly Recommend Joseph Fisher, the hotel manager You’ve done an amazing job This will be our new home in Florida Many thanks

Efraim Till

When my wife and I arrived everything was great When it came to check out everything changed The staff gave us attitude and wouldn’t stop calling and banging on our door at 11:00am to make sure we wouldn’t stay in the room an extra minute

Definitely not the service I would expect at a high end hotel especially when they charge $1,000/ night

Definitely recommend this place to stay! Clean suites and room, great service, front staff and resort staff were all so pleasant and very helpful! From the moment you walk in you feel welcomed and embraced We definitely loved it here, beach was amazing The resort is close to everything which was great

The beach was awesome and the pool with side bar was amazing Definitely recommend!


Not a 4 star hotel in my opinion The lobby and restaurant are both nice, the rest of the hotel is between 2-3 stars at best Small pool, not enough chairs

The rooms are extremely dated, poor water pressure on the showers and toilets Elevators could not keep up with the demand 15-20 min wait during peak timesWe had 6 rooms, each of which had the same issuesSuggest spending your money elsewhere


Awesome awesome awesome experience!!!!Last week was a special week and I spent it at this hotel I stayed in two of the penthouse suites consecutively during the week and I could not have had a better experience My only regret is that I could not stay longer!I have been to other high end places for my birthday like the Sandals resort in Jamaica and was HIGHLY disappointed, distressed, and displeased so I truly appreciate awesome service when I receive it!Hotel was very very clean especially my suites! The front desk manager Derek went out of his way to help me even before check on

The other day time manager Jose was ultra helpful and considerate also and went above and beyond for me AFTER check in during my stayThe valet team was awesome, and the manager Juan, I believe, was outstanding and just so good to meALL hotel staff I encountered were friendly, hard working, and so kind I did not have one bad experience, from housekeeping, to valet, to the restaurant, to the towel assistants on the beach!The rooms reflect what is seen in the photos exactly, and the views are so lovely! I was almost in tears! You have beach views from all rooms, even on the bay side of the hotel! It was just so peaceful here!I highly and without reservation recommended this establishment! I will certainly return again soon!!!!

Staff is very nice Accommodations are less than Can hear kids banging the walls on one side, and a couple fighting on the other

Needed updating about 20 years ago And the “Bay View Suite” Yeah just cars racing down the road constantly Do not recommend Would NEVER have booked here, but used Hotwire for the first time in years First time I’ve gotten screwed booking through them

Evan Perri

The service and location was great But the room was not as good, the shower door didn’t fully close causing water to get all over the floor of the bathroom Every time that the air conditioner turned on it would make a clicking sound, you could hear everything that was happening outside your also

It might of just been our room though Other than that it was a really nice hotel

Pamela Lerch

I put 5 but 0, the worst hotel, dirty the balcony, the jacuzzi (also not working), the furniture, the carpet, the elevator and around the pool Expensive and they don’t give you any soap, everything is paid for, everything even the coffee in the room I pay only for the view $450 for one night

You also pay for parking and for using the pool I’m not picky but I have a 6 month old baby who was crawling and the dirt was very disappointing

My family and I stayed at this location for 2 nights The customer service was second to none as you’d expect from Marriott The amenities that are offered across the street right on the beach are spot on

The complimentary drinks were delicious! Valet made life so easy especially considering how congested this area can get at times The breakfast was above average and if you weren’t feeling up to the breakfast included with your stay, downstairs is a great little spot to grab something at joe and the juice The pool upstairs was very clean and the view from the pool area was beautiful looking out to the ocean I’d say the only ding I’d really have for this location is the rooms cleaning standards didn’t seem as top notch as they usually are It was still more than acceptable, but I will say I know staffing at the moment is tight I brought this up to the hotel and not only was it addressed during my stay, but the general manager sent me a personalized message addressing any concerns The level of care, concern and pride that goes into the Marriott brand is so nice to see We’d definitely recommend staying

John L

We were pretty disappointed Room was not in great condition, bathroom was particularly low quality (have had better at budget motels), service was bad Front desk was minimally staffed and closed at like 5pm, cleaning staff would not clean – only rehang our used towels, and I had to track someone down to find toilet paper and soap (during which I was questioned over what kind of guest I was)

No bar, no food, no vending machines, no ice machines It’s not a terrible hotel, but it was well below we expected to get for $350 a night Calling this place a 4 star hotel is honestly a joke

Tz P

We had a beautiful stay at the Quarzo hotel Starting from check in the service and the staff were amazing, really accommodating and a pleasure to deal with Wish I knew their names so that I can give them a public shout-out

The rooms were immaculately clean and very well equipped Although we took a small room there was a beautiful kitchenette and sitting room and place to put everything down The service at the beach was awesome!! We got as many chairs as we needed and we got 4 cold water bottles handed to us along with our towels When we needed to check out we still had many hours until our flight and we didn’t have a place to keep our luggage The person who checked us out (who might have been the manager although I’m not sure) allowed us to keep our suitcases in his office until we needed to leave I have no words to express the great customer service we experienced Highly recommend this hotel and will definitely be back!

Celebrating my sister’s 30th birthday, we had a party of 4 in our girls trip and stayed in the 2 bedroom with the 1 king suite water front apartment We had a really nice view from our balconyLeading up to our stay, the staff was very responsive

At arrival and check-in, again, we had no issues and we were pleasantly greetedIt wasn’t until we got to our room and discovered we needed washcloths We thought it was a simple overlook and had to be a mistake I brought it to the manager’s attention and he seemed disappointed and immediately said he’ll take care of itWe had reservations for massages across the street at another property and told him we’ll follow up with him when we return We returned, and we were offered 1 washclothOf course there’s not much 4 women can do with 1 washcloth, but we were told that’s all they had at the moment We requested additional hand towels and bath towels to substitute for the lack of washclothsIt wasn’t until the next day and sometime in the late afternoon that we were offered washcloths and was only handed 4The amenities were minimal, bathrooms were outdated and the 2nd bedroom had no TV although a port was in the wall for itAside from that, the overall space was nice and accommodating for 4 Location was nice and away from the high traffic areas The beach attendant was a nice add, but a way to order food and drinks would’ve been a nice value add and longer attendant hours
