Reviewed yesterday NEW

I like this hotel for their friendly people, nice beach and pools. The only big disappointment was the dinner at Il Mulino. High price level and very poor quality. I was hardly more dissatisfied from a dinner at that level of restaurant.

Because reviews really are ones own opinion, sometimes what's good for one is not for another. Except in the experience at Acqualina Resort & Spa in Sunny Isles. In our 4th year of returning, we continue to be impressed with their CONSISTENCY of meeting the level of expectations. We have met numerous people in all these years, some repeat ,...

Hotel and staff were flawless. Ocean front as always is worth the upgrade. Only complaint is you loose sun at the pool by 1:00 and the beach around 3:00 to 4:00. So you have to strategize and enjoy the pool in the morning and have your beach chairs reserved for the afternoon. Assuming you came for the sun! Beach service...
