Need to sort air conditioning

Lovely desk staff.....nothing too much trouble. Complimentary coffee, fruit, yougurts etc. Small outdoor seating area.....not a lot in area, about 30 min walk to beach. Flanagans Irish bar nearby. Couldnt sleep with heat in room & when we switched on AC unit, noise was atrocious. Wouldnt return for that reason.

Plastic Wine Glass + Pubic Hairs = Generally Weird Experience
Reviewed 1 month ago

Trip booked when property was called Daddy-O. Reservation showed 2 nights instead of 1 so I called to change it, phone answered “The Landon,” explained issue was informed “ummmm...our system is down right now, you’ll have to call back tomorrow.” Fast forward: three additional phone calls over three weeks to correct mistake, but to my dismay every time the system was down.

Arrived onsite and guess what?!?
You’ll really never guess.
The system was down. (Shocker!!!!)
Forced to allow hotel to make a photocopy of my driver’s license and credit card. When I said I was uncomfortable with it, they shrugged. 👀

Offered a glass of complimentary wine for my trouble. Asked if I was ok with a plastic glass as the real glasses were all dirty. Also told all white wine was out ‘cause people really like it and it always runs out, “hope you like red, it’s all we got!” 🤷🏽‍♀️

Then, I had the audacity to ask what time the restaurant (attached to the hotel, there is an adjoining door in the lobby ~6 feet away from the front desk) stopped serving. Another shrug accompanied by “I, like, think they’re closing.” Methinks, as frontline customer service representative at this establishment, you should, like, totally mayhaps make a point to, like, know that information for your guests. 🤦🏽‍♀️

Next: go to assigned room on first floor and beeline to the rest room. Discover walls are paper thin....guests above me are vigorously enjoying each other’s company and the guests beside me are enthusiastically letting each other know they are not happy with each other. Return to front desk, request second floor room.

Then: Climb stairs to second floor. Hallway dotted with air movers. Weird, but I’ll take it - their loudness will mask sound!

Finally: Enter room. Unpack, go to wash face. Small curly black hairs in sink, on sink. Not mine - I just got here. Rinse sink out, put shampoo in shower. What’s that? Even more tiny curly hairs....all over floor of shower. Again, not mine. Just got here....

And then: Traipse back downstairs. Report my findings and ask for assignment to a clean room also on the second floor. Literally not given a response. Just stared at. I show pictures on my phone.....AM ASKED IF I NEED MORE cheap red WINE.

It’s now 11:30 PM. My meeting is at 8 AM. Give myself a pep talk with the theme that pubic hairs will not kill me or attack me. I will survive.

Go back upstairs, drink the generous pour of stale red wine out of a classy plastic cup and get an awesome night’s sleep. Seriously, the beds are heavenly!

HORRID!

I would give it a zero if i could.Stayed one night and will not ever go back again. Check in had a lady screaming for ten minutes at staff. Homeless/drunk gent hanging out in "lobby". Entire hotel smelled like sewage. Walls are beyond thin so that everything is heard. From room next door, from downstairs, from hallways. No in room safe which staff was surprised about as well. Did I mention sewage smell? Reached out to manager - with no response. I felt like i was staying in a youth hostel in a 3rd world country not a "nice" hotel in Bal Harbour. Simply awful with no followup from management @ hotel.

Worst Customer Service EVER

Booked this hotel through Booking.com for two nights before a cruise for our honeymoon. Booked 8 months ago!!
Emailed hotel direct to state it was our honeymoon and ask if they could do anything for us.
On arrival, after an 18 hour day - I am told they have cancelled my booking last night as there was an issue with the credit card number they had on file for me.
They have not made any attempt to contact me considering they my email address and haven’t contacted Booking.com

We now have the first 2 nights of our honeymoon with nowhere to stay

DO NOT RISK THIS HOTEL. 2 BOOKINGS IN 5 MINUTES TURNED AWAY

Can't wait to go back

Normally I only stay at Hilton hotels and I'm so happy I broke that tradition. This hotel had such a comfortable vibe it felt more like home rather than a room. It was very well maintained and the staff was the most courteous I've ever seen. Kenneth is so helpful especially if you're new to the Miami area and not sure of where to go or what to do. I would literally go back to Florida just to stay here again!
