Pre-Cruise Hotel accommodation in Miami, FL

Recommended Posts

Im not sure how fancy of a hotel your looking for, but we have blocked off rooms at The Laquinta Inn. Rates are about $100 a night and we will only be arriving one day before our April cruise. The perks are what sold me. They offer shuttle service to and from the  maimi airport and also offer a FREE shuttle to the port on cruise day. Breakfast is included as well as internet. They have pretty good reviews on trip advisor. Again only needed one night and something as close to the port as possible so this hotel was perfect for me and my guests.  Also a good note to know : you can block off rooms to lock in a good rate now and there is no obligation on your part. Any rooms not booked by your guest in the required amount of time ( i think they give you 30 days before check in date) are just released back to the hotel. So again you lock in a rate now and can cancel at anytime if you find something else. Also I believe if you need to make arrangements to be picked up from the port they will for about small cost per person. They bring you back to the hotel and you can use the free airport shuttle to get back to the airport. Good luck in your planning and I hope this helps.

You also have to pay for breakfast at Hilton.  Thats one expense taken off of your guests, who already have plenty of expenses I am sure.

Awesome, thank you!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
