Shore Club 
Stayed for a week and had great time..What we really enjoyed is that you feel relax and the staff is not pushy ( they don't see you just as a $$ walking around). At beach hotels in South Beach where we stayed before (5 star hotels) the service might have been better but very annoyed because there is a continuous effort to get your money especially at the pool. Have to mention the BEST EVER CONSIERGE Vachira Perez which made the difference to our stay. She is so friendly and really she knows the best places to suggest. She immediately understands whats your tastes are and suggests the right place..
