Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • 12 outdoor tennis courts (11 clay, one hard)
  • Excellent gym: cardio machines with private TVs; yoga deck; jogging path
  • Spa/salon on-site -- massages and mani/pedis
  • Open-air Baleen Miami restaurant, open all day
  • 24-hour pool and Jacuzzi; pool bar serving drinks and light snacks
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • No 24-hour room service
  • No beach

Bottom Line

Isolated on its own, 20-acre island off the coast of funky Coconut Grove, the Grove Isle offers big rooms (each with a balcony and a stunning view), a spa, 12 tennis courts, an open-air restaurant, a superb fitness center, and a marina. But there's no beach, just a patch of sand on some concrete by the pool, some rooms and public areas need updating, and the remote location means there's not a lot to do (an upside for those in search of tranquility).

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Just off of Coconut Grove, on its own private island

Grove Isle Hotel and Spa is on its own 20-acre private island, complete with marina. A number of restaurants, plus Kennedy Park, are just a short drive away on the mainland in Coconut Grove.

Though off the beach, Coral Gables offers charming relief from downtown Miami's corporate towers, but it's still within 20 minutes of Miami International Airport and the Port of Miami. Once a hippie alcove, lively Coconut Grove is now home to rowdy sports bars, colorful shops, and championship regattas. Local college students and endless street fairs help maintain its eccentric undertow -- most notably during the outrageous King Mango Strut parade, held on the last Sunday of every year.

  • 15-minute drive or $30 taxi to Miami International Airport
  • 35-minute drive or $30 shuttle to Fort Lauderdale International Airport
  • 20-minute drive (or more, depending on traffic) from the beach in South Beach
  • 10-minute drive to the Port of Miami
  • 10-minute drive to Parrot Jungle Island and the Miami Children's Museum
  • Five-minute drive to the Vizcaya Museum
  • 10-minute drive to the University of Miami
  • Five-minute drive to the Barnacle Historic State Park

 Rooms
