    I have stayed here twice in recent years and love the small resort, beachfront. Fantastic service from staff and great location.

    I stayed ther and loved it. The resort is right on the ocean boardwalk, a lovely daily walk. All that South Beach had to offer was close by, nightclubs, shopping, restuarants.

    I like this resort alot because it was a nice beachfront property. It is also small - 49 units which I like. The sign at the pool says no more than 18 people allowed in it at one time. So its probably not like most other timeshare properties. Parking is in a public lot next door - for about $7 a day which is cheap for Miami Beach/South Beach. Other hotels charge $20 or more a day for valet parking which is inconvenient most of the time. This is a quiet place. The units are very nice and equipped well.

    The only thing I wasn't happy with was paying for a chair and umbrella on the beach. $10 for each chair and $10 for an umbrella per day if you want it. We went to WalMart and bought 2 camp chairs for $10 each. I know its comparable to what the hotels charge but this is a timeshare and since it doesn't have alot of other amenities - the charge for the chairs and umbrella should be a nominal fee - not $30 a day. The chairs at the pool are free!

    Also the pictures shown here of a rectangular pool are for the other resort in north Miami Beach, not this location. This has a kidney shaped pool. It was never crowded and we were there during the third week of August.

    Used the hotel for a week this spring break. It's a decent hotel, rooms are pretty spacious and they come with most of items you need for the week. Direct access to the beach also! Overall it's a good place. Not horrible and not too fancy!

    I paid for a promotion for a 3 night/4 day stay (first listing under rentals), and was confirmed for an arrival on 1/15. I called 3 days prior to confirm the reservation and was told that I didn't have a reservation.

    They did refund my money ($198), but I had to make other lodging arrangements. Disappointing!

    This is a scam!!!! Do not ever go to this site!!!! They charge your credit card and then a few days later tell you there is nothing available. They offer you a resrt which is totally not comprable to what you are paying for. Beware of Westgate Resorts. I am contacting my Attorney General.
