Wonderful but a few things

  • 4 of 5

I was very inpressed with the condo. The location was perfect. The room was very clean the bedding was clean and so was the pillows and towels. However their were wooden slacks that needed to be glue to the floor by the kitchette part. One of the table legs was very wobbly. The shower curtain liner need to be change before another guest come, as well as the mold by the shower head. These things are very minor compared to the location,price and, cleanliness of the property.

Thank you Benjamin we enjoyed ourselves.

Perfect stay for Memorial Day weekend

  • 5 of 5

We arrived for Memorial Day weekend in which the weekend is known to be hectic. First of all, our plane arrived before check in time and we were able to check in early. The Congress hotel had day time socials and a day time pool party which was perfect for the weekend. No words can explain the experience we had. Everything was exactly how it was pictured. Great location, no need for a car perfect. Benjamin was so responsive on all my emails. Overall stay was absolutely perfect!! Will be returning soon for a short vacation

Location-AMAZING Everything else... well you will have to read below.

  • 2 of 5

So lets just start with "pros" this place has to offer

1. Location, you just can't beat it, especially for the price. You walk outside your door and you are in the heart of all the action. Now, if you are vacationing with young children beware they will be exposed to A LOT; however, young adults and any one else, if you want to be in all the action, the location is awesome. Plus, the beach is steps from the door, so the convenience of that is spectacular as well!

2. The roof top pool...simply AMAZING! The view is second to none. The only downside though, was the music. The bartender plays the music over the speaker from his phone and you would hear every ding when he received a text message (annoying) & he played what he wanted to hear not music the guests wanted to hear (but that is just me being picky I guess).

3. The space within the condo. It is very roomy, has good amount of storage for your wardrobe, toiletries, groceries, etc.

Now taking a look at the "cons"

1. Location (lol) --Being a 25 year old single male, the location was perfect for ME, but if you are looking to sleep...good luck doing so before 3am. Let's just say the party never stops.

2. The Shower- it is a very odd shower. Though it is very nice that it has a "rain" shower head, the shower itself does not drain. We would shower off after the beach and the next morning the shower floor was black with dried sand.

3. The bed and the pillows- the bed itself is very large and comfortable but everything else was gross. The pillows had absolutely no fluff and order to prop your head up one person had to use 3 of the four pillows provided. There were no extra sheets for the bed so you didn't even have the option to change mid stay. The best we could do was remove the sheet, shake it off and hang it outside...but when removed the sheet we notice the mattress was marked with MULTIPLE stains.

4. The place overall-Everything seemed to be falling apart. It was as if there is no upkeep. drawers were broken, cupboards were loose and broken, major chips in the corner drawer by the stove, floor boards separating the wood from the tile weren't nailed down, the table legs weren't secured properly, etc.

5. The cleaning team- Though i appreciate having a nice clean room, they had no regard for professionalism or politeness. They just opened the door without knocking and started cleaning WHILE WE WERE SLEEPING.

It's a place to get drunk at the beach and sleep, not to relax.

nous avons séjournée dans ce loft les deux premiere de mars 2016, l'appartement aurait besoin d'être repeint et subir un peu de réparation au niveau des armoires, aussi un peu de vaisselle serait les bienvenue ( pas de verre a vin, ouvre bouteille a vin non fonctionnelle), le loft est bien située si vous aimé le party jusqu'à 5hrs le matin le mois de mars étant le mois du spring brake américain et se ce passe entre la 5 eme et la 12 eme rue, faut aimé les jeunes sur le party, surtout que tout le monde peux avoir acces au étage du bloc par l'acenseur sans aucune clef ou autre ces un peu comme un motel, la plage est juste devant, notre loft était le 402, si je retourne a south beach je vais regardez quelque rue plus au nord et laissez la place au jeune ...

The resort is outstanding! The view from the rooftop pool is amazing! They were filming one day up there which was very exciting! The staff is wonderful from front desk Henry,Jonathon, and Alicenma(not sure how to spell her name} to the bartender Miguel who will make you his specialty if you're not sure what you would like! The pool was heated and well maintained. They had parties out there almost every night and great drink specials daily. No need to go out to dinner since they were grilling the best burgers on the strip( Mossimo the grill master was magnificent) all for only $6!! I cant say enough good things about this place and staying at Benjamins place made it even better!!! He is a great host who was available immediately if you had any questions or concerns. The place was exactly how I was expecting it to be and he even surprised me with housekeeping services during my 10 night stay! I never went without anything and the housekeeping staff (carlos who spoke english and all the others who did not but were so friendly) made my stay very enjoyable! Thank you Ben so very much for letting me stay in your studio! I just loved it and I want to come back soon!!!!
