Opened in October 2014 after undergoing a rebranding (it had been a Boulan hotel), Villa Bagatelle is just steps from the beach and is the first hotel venture from the hip Bagatelle dining/lifestyle brand. Thirty modern suites have been revived by designer Callin Fortis of Big Time Design Studios, and now they feature crisp white backgrounds with splashy accents, polished limestone flooring and designer lighting fixtures. The spacious digs offer living and dining areas, fully equipped kitchens or kitchenettes, bedrooms with Tempur-Pedic mattresses, Geneva Wireless Sound Systems and white marble bathrooms with deep soaking tubs and C.O. Bigelow amenities. Many units also have private terraces. Guests can hang out in the courtyard garden dining and drinking oasis, Bagatelle Gardens, or on the rooftop pool deck. The Bistrot Bagatelle restaurant serves modern French fare, trendy brunches and an art- and music-infused atmosphere.
In the Area
Set in South Beach’s happening, Art Deco–flavored Collins Park neighborhood, Villa Bagatelle is less than a block from the beach; beach chairs and towel service are provided for guests (note that beachfront food and beverage service, furnished by a restaurant partner, cannot be charged back to your room). Also nearby are cultural institutions including the Bass Museum of Art and the Miami City Ballet, the Lincoln Road shopping strip, and hip restaurants and nightlife options like Nobu and the Bazaar by José Andrés.
How to Get There
Had a birthday party at Bagatelle on Saturday night. Not a good pour on the drinks.
The food was cold and poor at best with the exception of the filet Mignon.
Do now get a prix fixed dinner for a group. You will get a lot of starches and not much protein.
Service was fair at best. We definitely do not recommend this restaurant unless the only reason to go there is to see pretty people.
In the center of Key West and on the most popular street we found the best restaurant experience we have had in Florida or key West. At a table overlooking the street and far enough away from Jimmy Buffet music across the street we took time and enjoyed our meal. The service was excellent headed up by the head server who was classy and friendly. The wine choices were good and the salad had raves from all 6 at the table and the grouper was also very good. Try it you'll like it
It was my business trip but I brought my husband and my 9 month old daughter along to enjoy in the sunshine of Florida but this accommodation turned out to be a real dissapointment. The rooms are rather spacious - we also got upgrade into a suite with a kitchen so we can boil milk for the formula - after the hotel told us we cant get them to boil us water because of a liability issue (?!). These used to be condos and some of the rooms still are which makes it weird. No real lobby, no restaurant, no breakfast room... Rooms are big but not really clean, there are pieces falling off the wall etc. The staff was nice but they couldnt really do anything as this place doesnt even look like a hotel, so the front desk was more like a doorman station... Not cheap and not really what we expected
Great location, huge rooms, modern facilities - all sounds great but unfortunately, it ends there...We stayed there with our kids because the room was huge and had a pull out bed in the (separate) living area. It also had a kitchen which is nice when traveling with the kids. That said, there was not a pot or pan to be found - no silverware and only two glasses. They provide a continental breakfast (pastries, couple of apples and yogurts) and there is an excellent coffee maker in the room- but there is no room service. There is no service in the lovely garden and no service at the pool on the room, despite they have full set up for a bar and dining area. Its a bit odd. If you want a drink or eat at the pool, you have to have it delivered by a local restaurant. The pool was freezing and it took literally six calls and two visits to the lobby to get towels for the beach area. It seems that there are two hotels in the hotel and the staff at the other was way more responsive. That said, we got a great price, the room and bathroom were huge and everything was very clean. It wasn't bad by any means - just really felt like there was no one in charge making sure all was run well.At the price, it was great - but I would not pay more a penny more and would think twice before staying there again (and bring a pan in my luggage!)
When you stay a Villa Bagatelle in Miami, it doesn't feel like a hotel and you are right on the nicest side of the South Beach! Feels like HOME everytime I stay there! Just behind it is my favorite cafe to get my Coladas and Cuban fix then head to the beach and at night, easily walk to any of the best clubs and lounges!
