The hotel was beautiful and I found the staff to be very welcoming, nice and accomodating. I spent a lot of time finding out about restaurants and attractions in Miami. The hotel is on a private island, but besides the hotel and spa, there are several high rise appartment buildings, which made it feel more urbane than I had expected. And while the room was generally very nice, the ceiling was not fully painted. Kinda "nit-picky" I know, but one wondered why in such a nice place they would skimp on the paint. All this said, the grounds are lush, and everyroom is right on the water.
Generally a very nice place to stay.
