Once known simply as Miami Bungalows, the fact that Miami is now a "resort" highlights its transformation from a few basic huts to what is now strictly a flashpacker to midrange spot.
Replacing the old huts are large and inviting light wood and concrete villas with high vaulted ceilings, tile floors, comfortable beds, wide terraces, modern bathrooms, air-con, fridges and TVs. Similarly equipped but less inspiring are the older white concrete standard bungalows set towards the back of the property, but still within a one-minute stroll of the sand. Apart from a family villa, all of the newer rooms are exactly the same and situated quite close together, with prices rising as you get closer to the beach and a sizeable swimming pool. The local family who runs the place have been at it for a long time, and while the service isn't as personable as some of the newer and more intimate resorts, they do a good job of keeping things clean and friendly. We were offered a sizeable discount if staying three nights or more. Both Ilmare Resort and Clean Beach Resort offer similarly solid midrange rooms with swimming pools at similar rates.
