Michael Staniland from Bournemouth, Dorset
Really good place to stay in SoBe
If you want to stay on Collins (and not Ocean - and why would you?) then the Imnpala is a strong recommendation. The overall feel of the place is very comfortable and friendly, and it is well decorated in a South Florida style with wrought iron and large wooden furniture. It is only 3 minutes from the beach so is well placed for those looking to top up their tans or flex their muscles on Miami's infamous golden sands. Alternatively, you could just sit in a beach side bar and drink mojitos like we did. The staff at Impala were very friendly and helpful, especially Ros who was great. It is good value for money and is all you really need unless you want to open your window and throws dollars out (aka staying at The Delano or Ritz Carlton - both fab places but let's get real here a bottle of water simply cannot cost that much!) Breakfast is not to be recommended really as it is packaged goods bought in, so would suggest a walk down the road to any of the delis as a better option. In their defence, they do make this clear to guests, so they're not trying to hide anything or pretend they offer a gourmet start to the day. Would defintely stay there again.
