W South Beach

Our Concierge Guillermo was a "make it happen" kind of guy!

Shore Club

In our 2nd day of vacation, my wife lost her phone and became very upset, due to all the valuable information plus precious family pictures. We saw Vachira at her work, and my wife spoke to her for help to use the phone to try to find hers. Vachira went more than the extra mile to help my wife to find her phone and helped her to go together to the last places my wife and I been there, she walked with her in the rain, and then got the Hotel Car to pick up the phone, she even tipped the driver on our behalf. What Vachira did is beyond what every one can do now a days to help others. God Bless her, her approach to manage the issue and her behaviour is indication of good leadership.

Amelia Nunez

A big thanks to Amelia from concierge who help me to do a beautiful surprise to my wife.

Charlie Phynes Garcia

But what sealed the deal for me was their concierge, Charlote "Charlie". She was fabulous. Since I did book this trip last minute, I hadn't had any time to plan any activities. She was a lifesaver! Everything she recommended was great!
