Best. Pool. Ever.
One nice thing about traveling to a city you’ve already visited is the lack of pressure to “do it all.” When we were in Miami last week, we used some Hyatt points to stay at this lovely hotel, The Confidante. On our first morning we discovered the pool…and pretty much parked ourselves there until we checked out two days later! We literally sat on our chaise lounges for two days. It was awesome.
The landscaping is beautiful and they have a separate adults-only pool. It was peaceful and the service was excellent.
They have these lovely little cabanas which cost a fortune to rent, but if they’re available and you ask the pool manager nicely, you might get to hang out there for free. We were lucky 🙂
Then there are some even fancier cabanas! These come with big screen TVs and free food.
The design of the whole hotel is retro and colorful, but not over-the-top. I loved the color combos in the restaurant and public spaces.
The room was comfortable but lacked space to unpack. It was well-designed but not as comfy or interesting as the public spaces of the hotel. The Jonathan Adler toiletries were nice and we had a side-balcony room with views of the ocean and the Miami skyline.
Overall we had a great experience at The Confidante. The service, design, and location (41st St and Collins Ave. in Miami Beach) were all great…but the pool took the prize! 🙂
