How to Get There
We had a mini family reunion in Miami and chose this place to stay. We got a 2 bed 2 bath room. Our stay was quite comfortable. This hotel is tucked in the corner and is 2 minutes walk to the beach. For a small fee you can get access to an umbrella 2 and beach chairs right on the beach. Our room also had a kitchen which came in handy with the kids. This place is a hybrid of airbnb and a hotel. There will be daily house keeping and front desk reception. They have nice chairs facing the bay. There was some construction happening near by but it didn't bother us at all.
Now for the cons - this place isn't maintained to its potential. The furniture / appliances had some wear. We would ask for bed linen to be changed and they didn't always do so. But a quick call to front desk would solve that. The swimming pool is very small.
The Bar Harbour Quarzo is an excellent choice if you don't want to be surrounded by noise and crowds. The hotel is at the north of Bar Harbour, right on the water. The hotel is essentially a mixture of apartments and hotel suites - there are only around 30 or so suites in the entire building.
The hotel is right next to the main road that runs through Miami beach making it very accessible if you are only going to be using public transport. There is also the Bar Harbour shopping centre that is about a 10 minute walk away.
There is a small car park at the front of the hotel that you can park your car in.
The hotel has access to a stretch of beach (about 3 minutes walk from the hotel).
The apartment I had was huge. Far too big for my requirements, but very nice to have.
The free wifi was good.
The value for money was excellent.
Having stayed at bland hotels elsewhere the Bar Harbour Quarzo was a much nicer option.
Should I be back in the Miami area I will look to stay at this property.
We travel to Miami from the UK every year and I have to say this place truly is a great find. Top location in Bal Harbour, right on the water and a 2 minute walk from the beach. Ideally placed for visiting all of Miami's attractions. We stayed for 13 nights in April in a one bedroom apartment on the second floor. Very spacious, modern and clean. Great service from the moment we checked in to the moment we sadly checked out. Great communication leading up to our visit from Julio who made sure that due to our late check in, due to flight times, that everything was in place for us on arrival. The pool and hotel grounds are very clean, tidy and well kept and are perfect for couples or families. If you're looking for somewhere in Miami that is modern, close to to the beach and feels really private then this place ticks all the boxes. I cannot speak highly enough of Quarzo and can't wait to return 2019.
This hotel is located on the corner of the inter coastal and the ocean. It has an easy walk to the beach where the lounge chair, umbrella and towel are waiting for you. Also close by is a walking path that you can take for miles along the ocean. It is a walk to town, and there are no food amenities at the hotel. But each room has a full size refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and set of dishes, and silverware, so you can get the essentials for your room. Although it is situated next to a highway, it is completely quiet. Beds are exceptionally comfortable, and the staff is super friendly. Service is excellent.
First of all, there was a big renovation of a very close by bridge. The noice was just horrible. I know the hotel is not responsible for this. But selling expensive room next to the bridge is not fair. The very high sound when we check to our suite was totally unexeptable. . The girl in the reception was more or less afraid when we talked about the problem, said that this is the town, not the hotels, problem. After many arguments, the hotel was not full as first said and we got another suite away from the noice, without seaview.
The suits are really big and very modern and clean! Full kitchen but no soaps, detergent, no toaster. It seems that the hotel doesn't expect you to use the kitchen.
Nearby the hotel on the beach sunbeds and umbrellas is provided. Only for two people? Why, we were 4 staying in the big suites. 10 dollar extra per person after the first two. This is just stupid to get guests confused and angry. Then we did not pay extra anyway.. The beach guy was very nice!
You also have to pay 20 dollar for parking per day in hotel private lot.
All in all beautiful suites, very fresh and nice decorated. Large! Management should think over the how they want to be recognized by guests.
