Coconut Grove, the city’s oldest district, has a fantastic laid-back atmosphere, and an upscale mix of boutique shops in CocoWalk, gourmet restaurants, and beguiling ocean views. Here’s our guide to the best hotels in this part of Magic City offering bohemian bliss near the beach, without sacrificing comfort or convenience.
