    If you're going for some R & R, you won't get it here. The "No Cell Phone" rule, which is posted everywhere, is not enforced. Guests in the bar are really loud. Definitely high pressure sales to see their holistic doctor - $$$. I was "misinformed" about one of the $275 50 minute sessions I had signed up for, it was nothing like what was explained to me. No one could give me proper directions to their place from the Ft. Lauderdale airport. One front desk clerk just blantantly lied to me and made things a difficult as possible for me to get an updated room menu (mine was out of date) - it's not rocket science. The teachers didn't know what "studio" they were teaching in. The children were allowed in a pool I was told they were not allowed in, so the staff was talking out of both sides of their mouths. How can you meditate or do yoga while children are screaming in the pool 20 feet from you? I won't even go into the construction noise. Simple solution is to have their yoga and mediation classes in a different studio. Staff couldn't keep my appointments correct, and then blamed it on me. I left four days early. Food, however, was great. Spa itself and spa staff was great. It was really the hotel part that just plane stank.

    Unique Quality: Pools were great as was pool staff. Spa and spa staff was great.

Weather in Late June early July in Miami

by Petercfc

Hi there,
I am looking at taking my honeymoon next year in the States. I plan to spend a week in New York and New England and a week in Miami. I understand June and July are in the hurricane season in Miami but is that a good reason to avoid the area? Does it tend to be fine during this time of year? What I am really after is a beach holiday to relax after sightseeing in the New York area.

Thanks for any help
Peter

I wouldn't avoid Miami because of the hurricane season but it will be hot. July is one of the hottest months of the year. But since you're looking to relax on the beach, that should work fine for you. Happy Honeymooning!

Peter, I might suggest your beach honeymoon at little farther north. Miami is brutally, brutally hot in July. Peak hurricane season (I think ) actually is August for Miami - not that one couldn't blow up in June/July -so that's maybe not a big issue.

We've even been to Hilton Head, South Carolina in July and it was so hot we could barely stand it but that may also have been one particular instance. I do remember the ocean water was a comfortable temperature to swim in so that was a plus.

There are some nice resort beaches on the more northern coasts - will let other members weigh in here.
Members, what to do you think?

Most hurricanes miss Miami, so South Beach should be fine for your pleasure!

Peter, you should be completely fine in June/July or any time for that matter. The end of June is when hurricane season commences so the beginning isn't usually active anyway. Although the weather is pretty hot and humid, you want a beach vacation so it's not going to be cool regardless of where you go. Avoiding Florida during hurricane season would be like foregoing California year round because of the chance of an earthquake. Better yet, you can monitor storms before you come and prepare if anything will affect your stay. So don't worry, and have a great honeymoon!

Thanks for all your help, I think I am sold and plan to have five days to a week in the Miami area.
Any ideas on a resort or area to stay in would be helpful. As we be just married will be looking for reasonable accommodation less than say $100 a night. Somewhere quiet but not too far away from the action.

Thanks again for any help

I have stayed at the Ocean Palm before, at $80-90 for an efficiency, and enjoyed it---it is nothing fancy but comfortable and right on the beach. (Close to the clothing-optional Haulover beach, too, if that is an interest)
In North Miami at 15795 Collins Avenue, with pool.

I agree that Miami and the surrounding areas are brutally hot and humid. I would recommend south beach for the novelty. Stay at a nice place such as loews,Ritz,national or someplace similar.If you try to skimp due to budget you will be dissapointed and have a bad experience. I live in Florida and have situations in Miami beach and south beach which were unbelieveable.

Travel Tips for Miami Beach

South Beach

by csordila

If you need a beach for people-watching and partying, then visit South Beach, on the lowest third of Miami Beach, the island between the Atlantic and Biscayne Bay.
Action is non-stop on the wide, 16-kilometre beach, starting with early morning fashion shoots for catalogs, commercials.
Sunbathers - some topless - spread out towels; seniors carry in folding chairs and umbrellas; couples stroll hand-in-hand; teens play volleyball; children frolic in the gentle surf as boats and jet-skiers ply the blue water.
Breezes are salty and sultry. South Beach temperatures hover around 20 degrees C. in winter and 27 degrees C. in summer.
Across a grassy meridian, studded with palm trees, rollerbladers share a pink sidewalk with joggers, dog-walkers and parents pushing strollers. Bordering it is Ocean Drive, packed with limos, Harleys, rental cars and Hummers. But there's no need to drive. Everything in South Beach is within walking distance. To the west, are the hotels, restaurants and shops of the Art Deco Historic District. Buildings, the color of strawberry, pistachio and vanilla ice cream, boast portholes, palm tree bas-reliefs and jutting 'eyebrows' that block the sun.
Interspersed with the Art Deco architecture are red-roofed Mediterranean Revival buildings. Many resemble European villas. It's not surprising that South Beach is called “America's Riviera.”
It is only 15 minutes from Miami International Airport.

Go Shopping!

by Weener

South Beach have some very trendy shops in Washington Avenue, Lincoln Road and a handful in Ocean Drive. Some really fantastic clothes, but they are not cheap. In comparison to London the prices were equivalent, if not more expensive.

Check out the thrift store on Washington Avenue between 12th and 13th Street. I got a second hand pair of roller blades for just $10, and hardly been used! There are quite a lot of second hand roller blades in there.

Outlet Centre go to Sawgrass Mills. 12801 W.Sunrise Blvd, Sunrise, FL. www.sawgrassmillsmall.com. About 40 mins/1 hr drive from Miami. Spend a rainy day here, theres loads to see. DKNY I found to be quite cheap. Check out the cheesecakes in The Cheesecake Factory!

Adventura Mall, north of Miami Beach, is another big shopping mall. Home to a Macys and Bloomingdales.

Everglades National Park

by sue_stone

When I was a little girl I used to watch a TV programme called 'Gentle Ben', which was about a family who lived in the Everglades National Park, as the father was a park ranger. Every episode they would jump in their Air Boat and fly across the water/grass to save the day.

Ever since, I had dreamt of visiting the Everglades myself and seeing the 'sea of grass' first hand. So of course, this was top of my list of things to do on our trip to Miami, as the Everglades are only 40 miles from Miami Beach.

You can arrange a tour to the Everglades from Miami, or the other option is to hire a car (or drive your own of course). We hired a car for the day and headed off in excited anticipation. We made our way to highway 41 (aka the Tamiami Trail) which runs right along the edge of the National Park.

Our first stop was at Coopertown Air Boats where we got to get out into the Everglades - full information in the next tip.

Then we continued on to the Shark Valley visitors centre. It cost us 10 USD (per car) to enter. Here you can find out more information about the Park and get up close with some of its inhabitants. Only a few metres from the car park we saw several varieties of birds - including some nesting babies, with their parents fishing nearby.

Taking a short walk away from the centre, you can see lots of alligators sunning themselves on the edge of the swamp....some on the pedestrian footpath! At one stage a large alligator just walked right across the path in front of us....I was a little nervous to be so close to these large reptiles, but it was quite an experience.

From the visitors centre you can hire bikes to do a tour, or jump on the tram tour, which lasts for 2 hours and takes you on a trip deeper into the Everglades for some serious flora and fauna spotting.

The whole area is teaming with wildlife - even when driving down the highway we had to swerve to miss turtles, and I could see alligators in the waterway to one side of the road....maybe not the best place to stop for a roadside picnic!!

Ultimate French luxury

by nomadig about Hermès

Hermès, the highest of the high in French fashion has its beautiful store located among its peers in Bal Harbour Shops mall. The brand is famous for their signature scarves, but there is a lot of other stuff worth buying for. If you are worthy enough... The store is really pricey, and most of can afford to buy a scarf or some other small paraphernalia.

They sell also clothing, bags and other stuff. The bags are classics, but price goes really through the roof.

The service, as usual in Hermès store, is top-notch. Attentive, focused and patient.

The ultimate in cheese

by Shaft28 about Mango's

Mango's on Ocean is an eating, drinking, dancing and frat party spilled onto the street,
While we found the food to be overpriced and bland, the drinks were pretty good.
The cheese factor is either a good thing or a bad thing.
Your wait staff tends to spend more time dancing on the street than serving you.
Once inside every bartending movie comes to life, and it is horrible.
If you are 22, go for it. 32 you'll tire of it, 42 run like hell momma!
Can be fun, but just tacky. Whatever goes. Less the better.
