The claim is true, they sell hotel suites to residents. But once they're sold they're not rented out.
I stayed in one via Airbnb, it was certainly in no condition to be rented out as a hotel room. Bit of a nightmare really.

Does the airBnB at SRBH include access to the pools and other resort amenities?

How is that hotel? Near restaurants/shul? Was thinking of maybe using some free nights there

Yes, we have stayed there a few times for Shabbos.
(We have gone to other FL locations that work out better for weekdays, etc...)
It works well for families with the one bedroom plus sofa-bed option.
Full refrigerator and counter space.
Friendly to Jewish needs: All rooms accessible via steps, some rooms have manual key-entry, and the staff is more culturally sensitive than some other nearby locations.
Interestingly, this year there was only a Menorah and there weren’t any trees or red/green to be seen anywhere in the entire lobby or on-site.
The staff even added an additional  light each night.

Would like to stay below $2k for the apartment if realistic

Sunny Isles also has close beach access, shul, some restaurants, etc...
Many within walking distance.

Which restaurants have good takeout for dinner during Covid restrictions?

Meshuga4Sushi has great takeout during covid (not sure if you would label it a restaurant).

Also, Lieders has an excellent menu. Not really a restaurant, but they have great takeout.

yes. but as always ask your rabbi

Our Rabbi said that it is totally Kosher to light in a hotel room or in the lobby.

(We once had manager’s permission to light three menorahs in the front window of the hotel lobby.
It was in Harrisburg or Allentown, I think.)

It is my understanding that most hotels in Miami do not allow open flames in the rooms or anywhere on the property.

Smoking is also off property.
Some guests said that they lit in the rooms, however kept it quiet and in the sink/on the counter, and not by a window or a doorway. (And did not leave the room while lit, obviously.)

see wiki should have all your answers

Question regarding lighting Chanukah licht: Since the hotels do not allow open flames, and it is too windy outside to light (and we cannot go indoors to most friends due to covid), then what are the options? And for Friday night?

Also, is there a thread for group lighting events/outdoor concerts, activities happening in the Miami area for Chanukah?

No shortage of Residence Inns around.

There is a larger Residence Inn in Sunny Isles that is next to Chabad of Sunny Isles -- still has open availability this weekend.

DAY 2
I guess with all the time difference we woke up at around 4am, mostly because the baby wouldn’t go back to sleep, and since the sun wasn’t out yet we just hung out outside. At 6:30 breakfast opens up, complimentary for gold & diamond members, so we took our bikes and headed there. This is around when the sun starts to rise so it was a beautiful bike ride and the breakfast area, named the Tasting Place was beautiful. There was only one other couple there. The views were beautiful and it was right on the beach with a choice of indoor or outdoor dining. The buffet was in a separate room and seems to be the only place in the hotel that they require you to wear a mask when entering. When we asked about the kosher options they said that they have separate pots and pans, cutlery, and plates for kosher guests since they get so many and offered to make eggs and such.

Some things I forgot to mention or include yesterday was some pics of the stroller and highchair they offer as well as the fact that they don’t have or offer a printed map of the resort so I would recommend you bring your own as its a big place. Also going to include the floor plan of the OWB and the kids program schedule:


Looks great here.
Excellent photos.

Was your private pool (at your OWB) heated?

You should go!

Yes, delicious fresh, dairy, and chocolate croissants  — very flaky and similar to authentic French pastry. 🍫
