Can you believe the August is upon us. Summer is almost over.
The best part of the summer is upon us. Miami Spice and Miami Spa combined. What better way to treat yourself than to enjoy a relaxing spa treatment followed by an amazing meal.
Enjoy the remainder of your Summer.

Ms. Bienvenides, the evening concierge was most gracious as were all the other concierge staff...And, the maintenance staff that is all over the property should be trained to be as welcoming as the bellman, valets and concierge. Perhaps
Ms. Bienvenides could lead this class.
Specific shout outs to the concierges:
Seth, who helped us with plans and directions before and during our visit.
Lenny even walked with us several blocks to our dinner restaurant!
