There's a sophisticated poolscape with water features including the secluded Oasis Pool and an interactive waterscape play area that will be a hit with the kids.

I recently visited Miami Beach February 21st for a little rest and relaxation, I didn’t realize I was going to be given the best experience I’ve ever had. The pool girl Sara Miens was the missing piece to my adventure, any question I had, she answered, anything I needed, she provided. She’s so tall and sweet, she even gave me a list of things to do the rest of my stay in Miami. I think I’ll come back just for her...and the pool music. Read less

The room was something I could find in a 3-star hotel. The toiletries were of low quality. Head shower was old and dysfunctional. Pool was packed and short staffed. Beach was packed and short staffed. Food was average and basic. I wanted my money and I will never come to this place again.

Zarina, our server. was outstanding! The service and warm personality was just what we needed when we were at the pool after a long trip. She got all of our drinks and food just right. We can’t wait to see her again! She really made this the best time!!
