Is my lease up yet? When I first began m search for apartments over a year ago, The Grand Tower at the Colony kept topping my list. To the eye it is a very lovely apartment: well-lit, well-maintained, modern, clean, spacious,… Full Review ▶


management is a JOKE! they have been building a parking garage for over 5 months, the scheduled finishing date was in June.JUNE!!! we are in September!!!! they will tow your car, even though it is not blocking any parking spots, not… Full Review ▶


Avoid living here at all cost. The parking situation is one of the worst I've seen. Not only is there no space for tenants they expect your guest to pay for valet parking to visit you. The elevator in our building… Full Review ▶


this place sucks....................BIG TIME..........DO NOT RENT HERE YOU WILL REGRET IT.....Looks can be deceiving. Full Review ▶


I live in the new building from last August 2012 until August 2013, which is 9357 SW 77th Ave. I feel that it is my obligation to write a review because I'm currently looking for an apartment in DC and it… Full Review ▶


This has been the worst first experience on living on my own away from my family. From the worst service with maintenance to the worst parking. To being treated badly from the management in the office to the security guard sleeping… Full Review ▶


I've lived in the Colony apartments a few months now. We have a unit in the 9305 building which isn't the nicest compared to the units by the pool, but its not bad either. The entrance to the building is right… Full Review ▶


Not nearly as bad as you'd think from the ratings. Really its very nice and in a great location. The Colony at Dadeland is a full amenity complex with a business center, gym, pool and extremely nice views if you end… Full Review ▶


Run away... Fast! Pros: -Units are fully remodeled -Nice gym -Nice pool -Maintenance requests are handled quickly Cons: -There is barely parking and the spots available are very narrow. Your car will get dented. -Management is EXTREMELY rude and unprofessional. -Have… Full Review ▶


NOT SAFE...TWO ROBBERIES IN TWO DAYS Staff: Accept one,staff is very rude. One day, in the newly constructed community hall, I was doing some work (i was the only one here) and the music was loud, so I requested the staff… Full Review ▶


It's highly overpriced for what you get first of all. The parking is horrid. Mine and at least 4 other tenants apartments flood from water leakage from pipes and on the first floor the neighbors get their apartments full of sewage… Full Review ▶


I had a terrible experience living here. My apartment was completely re-furbished...very very nice, everything new, except the a/c unit. The air conditioning unit was about 20 yrs. old. The first month living here, my electricity bill was for $243.00, I… Full Review ▶


The Colony (Dadeland at Colony)has change a lot with the new owners.Now, it is dirtier that before. If you need something to be repaired in your unit, you will have to wait a lot, call them several times and maybe they… Full Review ▶


When I first moved in here about a year ago I thought it was very nice, quite, the grounds around the pool were beautiful -- now its hell!!!!. The new management is very dishonest. My first encouter with them was over… Full Review ▶


Don't come here! Do yourself a favor! They lied about the parking spots. they said they were putting in more handi caps then only added one per building in the front. Then they took your assigned spots away and are selling… Full Review ▶


Since the new management took over in January 2010, living in Colony Apartments has become the most horrible experience of my entire life. Living here has become, for my wife and I and the tenants I have spoken too, basically living… Full Review ▶


I am very happy to see that the complex is being changed for the better. However, they say they are paying close attention to details, well I have put in numerous complains about my apartment and the maintance that it needs… Full Review ▶


This property has a new owner effective January 2010, and already you can see improvements on the property the pot holes are being taken care of. Many of the apartments are completely being redone. The maintenance staff has changed and things… Full Review ▶


We recently ask for some maintenance never really ask for much in the past in the last 7 years. Evone in the office (apt manager) is nasty, with a careless attitude We asked for them to do touch up some paint… Full Review ▶


I would never recommend this place to anybody. The people that work at the office are extremely rude they totally ignore you if go talk to them about concerns or vandalism going on in the buildings caused by residents of the… Full Review ▶


We have lived here for the last year and a half, and have really liked our time here. It's location is great, just down the road to dadeland mall, UM, metrorail, us 1...Aside from a few bugs and such (which management… Full Review ▶


Overall this place rates so-so. I was very disappointed with the not-so-helpful staff and the attitude especially from Ingrid. Jerry, the night manager was arrogant, loud and rude. Always claiming he was "The Man." A maintenance worker once begged me for… Full Review ▶


This place was sold after the 2005 hurricanes. Guess the old owner got his millions and didn't want to pay the high insurance and deal with problems he was smart sold the complex in the peak of the market best time… Full Review ▶

I've lived at The Colony for almost four years and it has become a real dump. The stove in our rental apartment is one of those old push button stoves from the late sixties or early seventies. The maintenance was just… Full Review ▶


I lived at the Colony Apartments from May 1996 through August 2000, while studying at the University of Miami, and left when moving back to Brazil. I found the Conoly Apartments very safe, clean, with good maintanance, and a very pleasant… Full Review ▶


I've lived at The Colony for four years and it has become a real dump. Building still not repaired properly since hurricane season of 2005, several muggings in the past few months since the new management got rid of security, and… Full Review ▶


I lived in the Colony from May 1996 to Dec 2000, when I left the US to come back to Brazil. The maintenace was great, managers and staff very polite, the environment very friendly and pleasant. I definitely recommend the Colony!… Full Review ▶


I lived at the Colony over a year, and it was fantastic. The maintenance was great; our AC died the first week we were there (hurricane related) and they replaced it the very next day. I didn't like a woman in… Full Review ▶


Dont even bother! sure the prices sound good and the area is nice. But this complex is horrible, the office manager lady is very rude with no tact. The service people also happen to be very rude, as well as the… Full Review ▶


The complex is old. The apartments seem to be solidly built concrete structures. Though management did absolutely NOTHING to prepare residents for Hurricane Wilma, amazingly, even though no windows were shuttered anywhere in the complex, I didn't see one broken window.… Full Review ▶


Moved in here 4/1/05 into a 2 Bedroom 2 Bath. So far it has been a very pleasant experience. I love the assigned parking place, too bad it can't be two, but you can't have everything. The only parking problem is… Full Review ▶


Although the rent prices are low for the area, the buildings are very old and come with many problems. There were major roach and other bug infestation problems that were not adequately taken care of by maintenance and bug spraying. Roaches… Full Review ▶


Been here for the past 2 years. Great location. 10 minutes walk to the metrorail means I dont have to drive to work. Staff very courteous. Any complaints were handled promptly. Security gated at night. The common areas were maintained quite… Full Review ▶


Get ready for peeling paint, water leaks, and slow service (this building is over 25 years old afterall). We still have a leaking wall after 3 years and many maintenance calls.

Parking lots flood multiple times each year, and 1st… Full Review ▶


Kids running and screaming in halls at all hours.

Incredibly slow (if any at all) response to maintenance requests.

Barely any guest parking spots available.

Gym and pool hours are not compatible with working professionals.

Inadequate telephone… Full Review ▶
