A Fantastic Hotel Experience
Having been in the hotel business for the past 25 years, I've seen a lot of hotels and this one rates at the top of my list. I found it on the internet and was very curious. I booked the room during the peak hurricaine season playing against the odds due to the generous discounted price. If you book directly on-line, they will upgrade your room (and there is only 49 of them) and provide two premium martinis, gratis. The room we had was an unobstructed bay view king with breakfast included. W were placed on the 4th floor with a balcony (balcony approx. 15'x10') which even had a ceiling fan. There was also a ceiling fan in the room. The room was magnificient with a king poster bed, shell wall sconces, marble-like table tops everywhere, a definite "first class" bathroom with all of the "first class" amenities, etc.
The shower was unbelievably relaxing. The Baleen Room Service we had (Baleen is their 5 star restaurant) was simply magnificent - and a little on the pricey side - never the less - it was fantastic. This hotel is not for the tourist family but for the business professional, romantic couple or someone just wanting piece of mind in a sprawling metropolis. Kudos to the staff and facility at Grove Isle - My wife and I will be back - forget Key West.
Really Really Really Nice
My wife and I stayed here for one night in December of 2002. This place was really gorgeous. We had stayed for a couple of nights in South Beach which was fun but then we came over to Coconut Grove to check that out. We could have stayed a couple more nights. The room was first class all the way. The furniture seemed to be new and the bed and bedding was top of the line. We had a room on the ground floor so we didn't have a birds eye view but from what we could see it was great. The marina was close but not too close to our room. It was so relaxing to watch the boats come back from a day of sailing. The web-site doesn't show you the that there is a big condo complex on the private island but it's very tasteful (million dollar places for sure). If you are going to Southbeach think about coming over to this place for a nice change of pace.
The resort is in a secluded location, part of a secure complex of apartment buildings. The service and staff were great, and the room was fabulous. We had a lovely view of the bay, and I just loved the room, design, space, and view from the balcony. I would definitely recommend staying there if you plan to visit Coconut Grove, and downtown is just a few minutes away by car. Although the resort seemed a little empty at the time we were there, but that may be an attractive thing for some people.
This is a wonderful little hotel a little off the beaten path but convenient for everything. The rooms are large and lovely. The food, especially breakfast, was quite good. The service was warm and efficient, and the grounds were beautiful and perfectly maintained. I would definitely stay here again.
Worst Stay of my life
The hotel is beautiful, but the rooms allow pets. I am allergic to animal dander, and I was sick the whole time!!! The hotel did nothing to correct this problem either!!
No heating system!
not recommend during december....
no activities in hotel....
too cold! our room had no heating system!
Baleen is way overrated....
instead of this fusion restaurant, go with any cuban restaurants around town...
The Grove Isle is one of the most fantastic resorts I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. Its location on a private island gives it a feel of being isolated from the chaos of the city. The entire atmostphere of the resort will make you feel like you've stepped back in time. All of the rooms are gorgeously furnished with private balconies. The bed had the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on. The jogging track around the island is fabulous, and the swimming pool was also beautiful, with a spectacular view of Biscayne Bay. The food is great too - Baleen is expensive but gourmet, and even room service was delicious. I would highly recommend Grove Isle for any trip to Miami. If you can afford it, it is worth the price and more!

Today was our first day at sea.
Our stateroom was in Concierge class, with a balcony. The room attendant, Joy, was a Filipino woman, who was pleasant and efficient. She had two children back in the Philippines and like so many crew members found she could make much better money on an American ship than she could ever hope to make at home.
As usual, it takes a few days to get all ...
