"First off the pictures on the website are a fairly accurate representation of the unit, but do not appear to be of the actual unit itself. The suite is in good condition, but it is not as fresh as the pictures indicate. Overall the suite appeared to be clean, but the kitchen could have been cleaner we when we arrived. The sink had some residue and the refrigerator could have been wiped down better to give it a nicer appearance. The photos of views from the room appear to be accurate. The owner provided plenty of towels and toiletries so probably would not have to bring your own soap or shampoo. The kitchen does not have an oven or dishwasher, but does have a stove and full size refrigerator. The TV’s in the suite were pretty dated and did not deliver very good picture quality. While I did not spend a lot of time watching TV, they could use an upgrade. We did miss not having a balcony, but Kamran let us know that during the rental process. know We had a few small issues which were addressed very quickly by Kamran and his crew. The one thing we could always count on throughout the rental process was a quick response to any email we sent or any problem we had. Karman was honest and forth coming with any question we asked. There were no surprises. The service from the owner was excellent.
The Hilton Bentley is in south section of South Beach. In general the area is quieter than other parts of South Beach which we liked. Directly across the street is Nikki Beach which has a late night party on Sundays. I am guessing you would be able to hear the music. Overall the room was quiet during our time there.
The hotel is right on the beach so it is a very short walk. There are several clubs on the beach by the hotel that rent chairs and umbrellas. I would go to Bucher Brothers about 100 yards north of the Hotel Beach Club. They were much nicer and there prices were consistant. The amenities at the pool are included with your rental, but chairs and umbrellas at the beach are extra and have to be rented out of pocket.
The restaurant in the hotel Santori’s was either very good or average. The first night we were there we went to happy hour and the drinks and food were very outstanding. A couple of other times it was not so good. Had a nice breakfast buffet every morning, although I only ate it once.
Overall we had a good stay. Great location, clean/quiet room, great service from the owner and his staff."
