Eager to see you in Miami!
Convenient, clean, with a lovely view. There is no exhaust fan in the bathroom, so bring along some air freshener, lol. This apartment needs some maintenance, but over all, it's comfortable.
Realmente muy comodo, la habitacion amplia, disponia de todas las comodidades descriptas (cocina y bano completo) todo muy limpio y la atencion fue muy cordial, siempre dispuestos a ayudar ante cualquier necesidad.
Disfrutamos nuestra estadia. Sin duda..vamos a volver!
I had a wonderful experience at the Castle Beach Design Suites (apartment 606) I leased for 4 nights with a friend. During booking via the AirBnb website Tomás provided immediate responses and was very professional. At check-in, we were greeted by a friendly and helpful employee named “Victor” who checked us in swiftly. Upon entry into our apartment we were greeted with an extremely clean and tidy space. There were two double beds, 2 arm chairs, 1 sofa, a nightstand, a coffee table, and a very large LCD screen that swivelled. To my surprise, our kitchen space was quite large and fully equipped with a fridge, portable stove top, sink, kettle, coffee maker, toaster oven, pots, pans, and all the eating utensils and dishes / glasses one would require. The bathroom was very clean and the water temperature and pressure was great. The wifi was easy to set up, secure, and the connection was quite fast.The cleaning staff was very professional and really surprised us with the care and skill with which they cleaned our room. The building itself was rather old and so the elevators took a long time; a little patience will be required. We did not drive and so did not need to use the valet parking. The security personnel in the lobby were friendly and courteous. The pool was a nice size and there was plenty of space for sun-bathing. The Lower lobby contained a small grocery store with friendly staff that makes excellent turkey sandwiches! Access to the beach was steps away from the pool and the building had quick access to the public transit system. There was construction happening in the building during the work week at business hours and this could be a problem for light sleepers. In addition, if you have noisy neighbors you will likely hear a lot of their conversations as the walls were somewhat thin. Overall, I had an amazing time at Castle Beach Design Suites and highly recommended it to all travelers!
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Not bad. But there is many cockroach
The room looks and feels like a motel room. Once you get over that cheap feeling, it's actually a pretty nice spot complete with a little kitchen with sink, hot plate, utensils, and a little refrigerator.
I could see the parking being a bit of a pain, but it's free. I didn't visit the beach or the pool. Two of the elevators were being worked on during my stay, so the wait times for the elevators sucked.
Overall, I would rent again.
Design suites are very mediocre; the view/location is okay, however the out dated building/rooms need a serious renovation. There have been minor updates, like paint here and there; but for the most part the rooms are pretty old and outdated. They were however clean, and again the ocean view was nice, room was just kind of shabby. There is direct access to the beach which is nice; and the check in was nice as your keys are just waiting on you and it does not require much of your time to check in.... The rooms are just older and need an update (bedding/sheets/pillows) etc.. were all clean and nice; bathroom needed serious attention; like sink which was constantly clogged etc... I would stay there again as a last resort, but it would not be my first option.
Great price and location. Builiding is a bit rundown, as well as the elevators. Room is exactly as in the pictures. They clean the room every day. This is a company not a person obviously, this kind of takes away the magic of Airbnb. But thats just more an issue of what I thought Airbnb was.
When I first reached out inquiring about the stay, they responded within hours, but when it came time for check-in info, I sent multiple emails without any response. I had to call Design Suites to ask how to check in. Finally, they sent me an email with instructions to check in two hours before we arrived.
The room we got was not what we expected, we had tile floors, the picture has wood floors. The shower was kinda dirty, there was a hole in our wall, the beds were creaky. The elevators need to be renovated, as does everything else in the building.
The few nice things were free valet for our entire stay, and the fast wifi. The location was great as it was close to everything. If we ever come back to Miami, we will probably end up staying somewhere else..!
The condo was exactly like it was described in the posting. They also made check in and check out extremely easy. And the view was absolutely stunning. I didn't have time to go explore the beach/ bar by the water but our view of the beach was beautiful! I have no complaints about my stay.
Also the host was great about communication.
Thanks for hosting us!
