Apartment TH12 is located in what appears to be a tired hotel (Casablanca on the Ocean) which was not mentioned in any of the marketing materials we read. Had this information been provided, we would have been more cautious in booking the apartment having subsequently read so many unfavourable reviews of the associated hotel.
The apartment itself is of a very good size, light floods in and windows face towards Miami Beach with the most fantastic balcony. The beach itself is directly accessible from the hotel rear gate. Here is where the positive points end.
The décor and fittings were tired throughout; previous flooding (storm damage) to the second bedroom carpet resulted in an unsavoury odour which was concealed by the owner at the point of handing of the keys. Also, more worryingly, the broken lock to the patio doors leading to the first floor balcony was not declared despite a member of our party especially raising security concerns on arrival (apparently there are no security concerns at the property we were told)
The owner was pleasant, reassuring and accommodating in trying to resolve issues raised although his timekeeping in making agreed appointments was poor. In addition, his remedial action of supplying a broomstick handle wedged in the patio doors in lieu of a lock repair hardly engendered confidence in security!
The location at 63rd street/Collins Avenue was acceptable but the area lacked any quality local facilities apart from the Publix supermarket some five blocks further north and Denny’s fast food some two blocks on from Publix.
We made the most of our stay at the property, we loved Miami. We would recommend the city, South Beach especially, but not the property. We selected the apartment given budgetary considerations and inflated South Beach prices. However, it wasn’t cheap and didn’t represent value for money yet alone a quality lived experience.
