We bought two nights using Groupon and the photos looked incredible and the price was USD 121 mid week - so ok - good deal described itself as a resort, touting massage, spa, steam rooms, Russian Bath...

The Hotel was nice for our stay. South Beach can be easily reached even without car (Bus stop right in front). The room was equipped with everything needed for the stay. Front Desk was friendly and helpful, especially Mauricio and Ardeli. If you do not expect a five star resort, it is really nice with Pool and Beach Access. Money...

This hotel was truly an unsanitary, hotel to reside in. It was filled with roaches, flies, and spiders. The insects were in the refrigerator and all on the walls and floors throughout the "condominium room" daily. My bed sheets did not appear to be changed daily either. The "hotel" has about 9 stairs to climb to enter and exit it...
