... and then jumped on an airboat. This was an exhilarating ride over the swamps, very fast and rather wet! The driver took us down narrow swamp trails, and fast boat spins had the muddy water splashing up and into the boat. The ride took about 20 minutes and worth every cent.
We continued our drive to Miami, our destination Miami South Beach. Our route took us past huge cruise boats tethered at the port; ...
Just a short blog from Miami as we weren’t here that long. And we didn’t like it that much!
We got here on Thursday, after collecting a car in Orlando. This was a bit of a hassle, as when we picked up the car, the guy told us he didn’t have any sat navs! I looked at Olly in disbelief and said “well, renting a car is pointless then, as we have no idea how to get to Miami”! After helpfully (!) calling ...
All packed and Sedan arrives at 1000 to take us to Newark International airport. Flight delayed 2 hours firstly because something fell off the United airlines plane inbound which could be fixed (probably could find the bit that fell off) and then just as we were about to board a cabin crew attendant had a medical situation i thought that was airline speak for the pilot is ...
... his leadership and for the encouragement this has meant to him. He has so appreciated us being there and affirming him in this way. It is so good that we will be catching up with him regularly on skype. We know he will need the on-going encouragement and support as he confronts the challenges before them there. Plus it makes the good-byes easier!!!
So our trusty taxi driver, Frank, was there to pick ...
We started our day with an Everglades tour. So we headed out to the swamps and hopped on an airport with our lovely (if slightly redneck) guide took us alligator spotting. Some of the gators are monsters - we saw a 7ft one but the majority of the ones we saw were much smaller - think fresh water crocodile size.
We also saw a few turtles and heaps of birds including ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Mimosa Hotel Miami Beach
I was looking for a last minute escape to some warm weather without having to spend alot of money. After reading some of the reviews I was a little worried about the Mimosa Hotel.
The Mimosa was clean and the people were nice. The Mimosa was a very nice beachfront hotel.
I purchased a beach chair for $10 bucks down the street and enjoyed some of the local bars and restaurants and took advantage of the bus which easily took us to Bal Harbour and to Lincoln Rd. and South Beach.
I would recomend this hotel and will return.
Had the amenities of a Best Western or Travelodge, but more expensive. We were quite disappointed.
My Girlfriend recently attended a conference in Miami Beach and I tagged along for a little vacation. After reading your website I was a little concerned about her choice but after staying there a week I wanted to let people know about our stay
OK for 1 night only
The rooms are nice decorated and the beds are good but the location is really ---- with a paid parking across the busy collins avenue. The rooms are not soundproof, you really hear everything your neighbours do. The pool is not heated and small and the beach is the worst in Miami. The hotel is located between 2 construction sites. The Gym is located a block away, but the personnel is in my opinion outstanding and helpfull, especially if you consider all the problems and complaints from guests they have to deal with. Its rather funny to drink a coffee in the lobby and hear really every guest complain to the receptionists. For sure we don't come back and the advertisment is misleading.
If you like to live in garbage, you'll just love this place!!! Our first night there, we had to call to have the linen changed - dirty sheets. The following morning, we (my husband and I) had to share bath towels - one had old blood stains on it. When we reported it they were not apologetic or accomodating. Anyone whose mopped their floor knows that you have to use clean water or the floor will be dirty and sticky. The floors were mopped everyday with dirty water and you could see the footprints of the supposed cleaning crew. You are unable to regulate the temperature in your room, there is NO spa in the facility, or gym unless you consider one treadmill, one stationary bike with a curtain serving as a wall separating it from a pool table on the opposite side of the room a gym. Oh, the beach, it is about 7-10 feet of rocky sand backed up to the back of the hotel- no place to lay back and relax. THIS PLACE WAS A TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY!! Don't think you will iron your clothes either - no iron or ironing board in the room. The fridge is a wine cooler - it chills. The t.v/dvd player sits inside a makeship wall unit and will give you whiplash trying to watch it (you can't adjust or turn the t.v.). The best part of all - the walls are paper-thin where you can hear everything your neighbor says or does. WHERE'S THE PRIVACY????
My husband and I along with our 2 kids (aged 5 & 10) stayed at the Mimosa for 1 night as a post cruise vacation. Although we were there for only 1 day I have to say I did not notice any of the musty smells anyone else mentioned.
I stayed at the Mimosa hotel for a weekend recently. Firstly there is no parking I had to park across the street and walk through a busy intersection in order to check in luggage in hand. The first room they placed me in smelled of sewage due to a plumbing problem, when I called the front desk and complained a maintanence worker showed up with a plunger and air freshener. When I stated I wanted a different room the staff looked at me like I was nuts.
For the price tag of $125:
Very nice stay - friendly staff
We recenlty stayed at the Mimosa and we had a great experience. This building has been newly renovated and they did a great job. Rooms have a modern flair and are very comfortable. The staff was also very friendly.
