Coral Gables was one of the first planned communities, and prefigured the development of the gated community and the homeowners association. It is infamous for its strict zoning regulations. The city was developed by George Merrick during the Florida land boom of the 1920s. The city’s architecture is almost entirely Mediterranean Revival style, including the Coral Gables Congregational Church, donated by Merrick. The domed, Catholic Church of the Little Flower was built somewhat later, in a similar Spanish Renaissance style. By 1926, the city covered 10,000 acres (4,000 ha) and had netted $150 million in sales, with over $100 million spent on development.

Old ownership was much nicer then the current one, the towel washing machine is always broken, the gym, sauna and pool are nice but the leadership needs to pick up the effort.

Nice place to have a cup of coffee with a friend in a quiet environment close to Granada Golf Course.

This place was surprisingly family friendly. Everyone there had kids and so the environment was casual and relaxed. Such a wonderful treat.
