En snorkelen werd het vandaag! Zoals gisteren gepland. We hebben wel even moeten bellen want voor vanmiddag stonden thunderstorms op het weerbericht maar het snorkelen ging door. We zijn met de auto gereden naar het Nationale Park Biscayne, net ten zijden van Miami. Dit nationale park, net zo'n park dus als de Grand Canyon en Death Valley, ligt …
Weer uitgeslapen. Gisteravond kwamen we er achter dat we een dag langer hadden in Miami, dus kunnen we het wat rustiger aan doen. Als we eenmaal op zijn proberen we een snorkeltoch in het nationale park van Key Biscane te boeken maar dat is een eind weg en we zijn daarvoor vandaag te laat. Daarom gaan we naar Downtown Miami om een boottocht te gaan …
Vanmorgen uitgeslapen, we worden zo rond tienen wakker en genieten van het mooie uitzicht van de kamer. Als eerste vandaag gaan we natuurlijk even in zee en naar het zwembad. We krijgen een echt "vakantie aan zee" gevoel. Misschien wel net zoals je in de grote kustplaatsen in Spanje en Frankrijk tegenkomt, zie de foto's maar. Vanuit de hotelkamer, …
De twee weken zitten er al weer op. Ilse en Florence gaan naar huis. We hebben twee gezellige weken gehad in New York, Philadelphia, Washington en Orlando maar vandaag vliegen ze terug naar Belgie. Jammer maar vantevoren hadden we het zo gepland. We nemen met zijn allen afscheid van het hotel in Orlando en wisselen nog snel de foto's uit. Met de …
We went to South Beach on Miami Beach for a volkswalk through the Lincoln Road Mall; along Collins Street; Ocean Drive to South Point Park ; and back through Lummus Park to 17th Street. We had lunch in Miami at Casa Juan for some authentic Cuban food. I had Puerto Fracasse with ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Newport Beachside Hotel and Resort Sunny Isles Beach
The great things about this hotel are the comfortable bedrooms with large bath, great service, delicious breakfasts with a huge selection at the buffet, wonderful beach and pool. Room for improvement would definitely be the lobby--my first impression was, "what a racket --with birds in cages chirping loudly to the noise of the large t.v. going full blast next to the bar. This is the area that should entice one to feel comfortable, instead it made me want to run away as it looked so cheap! The restaurant (breakfast room) could also be improved on, as the colors are too dark. In the bedrooms there was hardly enough drawer space for two people (two dresser drawers) and we had to ask for more hangers which promptly arrived. Staff was very friendly and helpful at all times. I would come back again and recommend this hotel for a quiet stay.forgot to include that it is a shame that people don't try to keep the beach clean--there were cigarette stubs and bottle caps everywhere! At least the hotel staff should clean up in the evening, or make an attempt to do so.
Wonderful Resort.. Good Price.. No Complaints
Arrived 1/23/04.... Found room to be very large with fridge, microwave, coffee maker( free coffee), 2 t.v's, large kingsive bed and fold out.
Huge heated pool. perfect beach ( but mostly stayed at Haulover during the day, that was really fun). Very much reccommend this hotel especially if you get the lower internet rates... only complaint was the hot tub closed at 7 pm, other than that.... no problems
I would have to agree with many of the statements the previous reviewer gave. The hotel was older and needed some minor repairs. The rooms also have a mild smoke stench. To avoid the $6.00/day valet park across the street behind the gas station. It will only take you a minute extra to park there plus you can get your car faster. As for the smell of the pier, well it smells like any other fishing pier that has regular fishing. The best part of the hotel was its location and extra activities that they set up for you. If you like charter fishing I recommend the Therapy 4. The hotel will have them pick you up and a 1/2 day trip only cost $100.00. They also can set you up with snorkeling trips and trips to the Everglades. The pool area was set up nice as was the oceanfront view. I would definetly go back since it was part of a time share however I might recommend searching around if they are looking to get the 200-300 nightly rate.
This hotel is trying to "renovate" but their look still "old". They are a bunch of cheapos, trying to squeeze every penny out of you (these guys do not believe in customer satisfaction). Do not leave your car with the valet person. They charge you $6/day but you can go in/out as many times you want during the day -- because of their arrogance do not give them tips until they change their attitute. You can self park across the street, a bit an inconvenience but it's not bad.The rooms are old looking. We asked for a non-smoking room and got otherwise. We complained and got an air purifier (so much for customer satisfaction).
Love the Newport Resort
I went their once a couple of years ago with some friends, we all shared a one bedroom suite, the room was really nice and clean, the staff was helpful. I had a really fun time when I went their. I would recommend the hotel to travelers.
I stayed at this hotel with a bunch of my friends from my church. The hotel attempts at a Bahamian feel with their calypso music and vibrant colors (and the exotic birds in the lobby). Not a HORRIBLE attempt, though. Breakfast buffet is AWESOME! The beach leaves much to be desired. The pool is small and crowded. The rooms are decent and clean, but there is no sound barrier between rooms. I heard my neighbors every day when they brought their kids back from the pool. Someone lit an entire box of firecrackers in the hall @ 2am and we opened our front door to smoke and chaos--it looked like 9/11 in the hall. People were panicked and the hotel staff was not helpful. They were sending us back to bed w/o ok from the fire dept. People were angry and scared. Other than this incident the hotel stafff is nice, but not exceptional (I travel frequently.) I honestly would go back if my friends came with me. They were the real life of the party.
We really enjoyed the resort. The rooms were nice and clean. Everything was as we were told it would be. The location was great and the beach BEAUTIFUL!!! The pool and beach were very enjoyable and we will definately return.
DO Not Stay Here!
I took my wife, 2 daughters and their friend to stay here for 3 nites. We checked out immediately after the 1st night! This is in a bad part of town, alot of rough people. Little kids (8 yrs old) yelling obscenities from their balcony, lots of drinking, guards with guns everywhere. No one speaks English! People on patios drinking til 3am loudly! The website is totally different than the resort! We found bubblegum stuck to sheets, they probably were not changed. We reserved a one bedroom, what it actually is, is a hotel room with a glass shelf between the beds! We were afraid too go to sleep at night, being the only people with blonde hair, people were staring at us! Barricaded the door with our cooler. The worst place I have ever stayed!
It was nice, but..
My wife and I stayed here on our Honeymoon in June of 2002. It has a terrific beach, and the only peir we saw on Miami Beach. We had a good time however, all rooms in this hotel are pet friendly, and even though we stayed in an ocean view suite the room had flees. I had a great time at the hotel but was so flee bitten by the end of our stay that I was pretty miserable. If you go, get an ocean front room, the view is spectacular! Also be advised that parking is a problem, and onsite restaurants are simply okay.The price was very fair. It is an older hotel but has some charm. Far enough away from South beach for quiet, but close enough to go partying.
Love this place
I have stayed at the Newport on at least 12 occasions and I have always been happy with the rooms which were really upgraded during the last renovation. The fishing is fantastic and the staff is very friendly. I always recommend this hotel to family and friends. In fact my retired father goes there every year to fish and relax.
