THe hotel enjoys one of the better full service spas on Miami South Beach.

Always a good start when you can walk from the beach into the pool area. These are a quality choice in the Sunny Isles especially if you like to do some of your own catering and appreciate a decent kitchen.

Doubletree Ocean Point Resort Sunny Isles Beach

Trump International Beach Resort, Miami

Located close to Miami beach but in reality a world away. One of the best pool and bar areas you will find. Overall one of the better hotels in the area but does have some of the usual problems of understaffing on occasions. Worth a try if you are looking for something different and topically interesting.

Marenas Resort, Miami

Right there on the Beach with easy ocean access this 140 suite has an intimate vibe. Vibrant and full of energy this one will go down as one of the trendier places to stay in Sunny Isles.
