The colony was a great place & I absolutely loved the services! Harold who worked at the front desk was of great service and a pleasure to be around. I had so much fun staying there and chatting with him, he truly completes the hotel as far as personality, professionalism, & services!!! I hope to see him in future trips!

Stayed here for 4 nights 2nd-5th May. Was pleasantly suprised when we got to our room as I had read some very mixed reviews! The room wasnt huge but had 2x double beds and a small shower room. The only criticism about the rooms were that the beds were really creaky and the shower took about 15 minutes to heat...

As we were travelling to Miami with children and only staying 2 nights, we wanted to be in a good location but obviously wanted a good price and for it to be relatively child friendly.

I enjoyed staying at this hotel, the front desk people were respectful and very helpful. Even though this place is right on the beach in an area that has a lot of clubs, my wife and I felt safe and comfortable. The food was great and the rooms were clean.

However, there were others we know that have had the same experience.The room is basic (Ibut clean). There are...
