Casablanca On The Ocean

Miami Beach, Miami

The hotel

Location’s everything in Miami — and Casablanca on the Ocean has one of the best. Right along the sands of Miami Beach and opposite the Intracoastal Waterway, it’s set in exclusive Millionaires Row. This puts you just five minutes from the famous Art Deco District of South Beach and five minutes from Bal Harbour, with its swanky boutiques and restaurants. An historic ‘condo hotel’ dating back to the 1950s, it has all the comforts of a residence-style apartment, including fully equipped kitchens in every room, with all the extras of an oceanfront holiday resort — extras like its cocktail bar and restaurant Bogart’s, the indulgence of room service, and the large swimming pool, which sits just a few steps from Miami Beach itself.

Stayed here for a Thanksgiving Family gathering. The staff was really helpful and treat you like family. Quick to attend to your needs, clean rooms, comfortable beds. Great location right on Miami Beach. Very convenient to have access to 2 locations within walking distance.

This hands down was the worst choice I have ever made and I have travelled all over. South Florida Vacations LLC in Miami Beach should be ashamed to have the audacity to rent the room we had number 716. Dirty linens paint peeling off electric switch in bathroom cracked and dangerous. Elevators broken..the beach is behind it and the only good point. We were trying to get refund after seeing the trip advisor reviews as hotels site didn’t show these real ones!! The rep from south Florida vacations lied and says he didn’t get calls from hotels site when they tried him. This place should be removed Read less

The best advantage of this hotel is the beach, beach access, beach chaises and towels! They are free. The best thing the owners need to do is close the hotel and renovate overall. Another option is to sell the property. Everything in the rooms are old and falling apart. I wasn't able to turn the TV on and finally gave up the second day. The… Read more
The best advantage of this hotel is the beach, beach access, beach chaises and towels! They are free. The best thing the owners need to do is close the hotel and renovate overall. Another option is to sell the property. Everything in the rooms are old and falling apart. I wasn't able to turn the TV on and finally gave up the second day. The mattresses are definitely 10 years old. The towels seem to be clean but there was a left over towel in the bathroom inside the shower curtain from the previous customer. The elevators are a mess. Some don't function although it's buttons work. Don't even bother to eat breakfast in the restaurant. You can have better options outside. The front desk is friendly but also depends on the shift. I had good and bad experience both within 12 hours. Lobby is large enough and can find comfy chairs to wait for others. The price we paid was average but there are comparable hotels within a few blocks. Read less

Had a prior reservation already and confirmed 2days before the actual stay date that our room is all ready and set.

Had a prior reservation already and confirmed 2days before the actual stay date that our room is all ready and set. Only after reaching there they said our reserved room is no more available due to some unknown issues. It was a shock to us as it was already late in the evening and hearing this was ridiculous. When questioned about this, they replied very carelessly. We had to cancel the reservation in Casablanca and had to book a new one for a very higher price at the last moment. This is unacceptable. Had a worst experience!! Read less
