Rated 4 out of 5 by Ricnetwork Watch out when you leave the pool
The hotel has an unannounced policy that if you leave your chair by the pool, they clock your time and take away your chairs without any communication, if you are not sitting down 30 min later, and are rude about it too when by surprise you find out. I Like the hotel, the policy makes me question the guest experience. I have stayed many times and each time have enjoyed it. this incident and policy makes me question how to enjoy the hotel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mel456 This hotel has the worst service of any SPG property
The service here is the worst! they are totally unresponsive and aloof. Everytime you call whatever/Whenever you wait on hold and if they tell you tthey will call you back, they don't. When I called back they told me the person left. They closed the pool early one day and my wife left her bag there and the pool attendants were totally unhelpful. There was no sign saying they were closing the pool early. The front desk said trhey put a note under the door at turndown but we never had turndown because the maid knocked on our door at 10pm and we told her it was too late. I asked for the manager to call me and he never did. This is the 3rd time i've stayed there in the last year and everytime the service has been bad. We ordered drinks at the pool and we waited 25 minutes for them. Next time I'm going to the St. Regis in Bal harbour!! It's a pity becasuse i love the location but the service is too unbearable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tra1973 Great look per service.
II love the modern contemporary feel and look of the hotel however the customer service is not reflective of the luxury/exclusive trademark. The features of the hotel were not explained upon check in. The hospitality suite was not well maintained (dingy and severely worn furniture). In addition the account executive in error swiped my card twice at check in and also withheld $650 in incidentals. Therefore a significant amount of my funds (an additional 2600) were withheld until the reversal cleared which took away from vacation funds. Management did nothing to compensate me for this error. I also don't understand why this venue holds $650 in incidentals against credit cards. I have only heard of that being done with bank/debit cards. A number of the waiters/waitress were inattentive. Perhaps this is because their 18% gratuity is guaranteed. I actually liked the space and layout of the room however the bed did not sleep well at all and linen was felt rough and heavenly starched.

Rated 1 out of 5 by PBJ123 Unfortunate Stay
We checked in on March 6, 2013 and when we entered our room we noticed that our balcony overlooked a construcction scene with constant jackhammering. This went on throughout most of our time during the stay. It completely wrecked our stay as we booked a great suite with a large balcony for gathering and we could not even open our door without the loud jackhammering annoying us. We understand that construction happens but i would think that they would give us some kind of warning so we would know what to expect and have the option to book something else. The front desk was not accomodating and could not move us to another room beacause of availablitly. I also asked for a reduced rate which they did not grant as of yet.
Also, they have left off two nights from our rewards for SPG points. I will let them know but be sure that Starwood does not try to cheat you out of a few nights stay for rewards...dissapointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jillsie South Beach WOW!
My husband and I spent two wonderful nights at this beautiful property to celebrate my birthday. Jimmy upgraded us to a beautiful Oasis suite that had the most incredible views of both the sunrise and the sunset from the huge balcony. We did not want to leave our room!! Staff at the hotel were amazing... Very friendly and professional!
