Grand Beach Surfside
The Grand Beach Surfside hotel is located next to the iconic Bal Harbour Shops (try Carpaccio restaurant) in an upscale neighborhood. We believe this beachfront 4 star hotel to be one of the best cost x benefit options in expensive Miami Beach. We really enjoyed the very modern, bright and airy property, with pools by the beach and a rooftop one from where you can enjoy breathtaking sea views and drink cocktails at sunset. Don’t miss a bike ride along the promenade by the beach, and some time lying in the sun with a very efficient private beach service. Rooms are graceful in pastel tones and quite large, most of them with panoramic sea views. A very good feature at the Grand Beach Surfside is that they offer family rooms, very convenient if you are travelling with kids. This hotel is a little distant from South Beach, around 15 minutes by car, and you will need to cross the bridge and a longer drive to reach downtown Miami and Brickell (areas that are in vogue nowadays), where you will find some of the many attractions in town like the Design District, Wynwood Walls and the Perez Art Museum. Please note there is another Grand Beach hotel in Miami Beach, so make sure you book the one that suits you best.
