I'm not sure I would say Cancun...more like a tropical LA. And terribly crowded for a Florida beach. I would try Key Biscayne beach. Far more beautiful and less people. Right now it's very hot--atypically hot--in Florida. I'd say you can expect 80s during the day and 60s at night with occasional dips (cold weather does happen, but it doesn't last more than 2 to 3 days at a time).

I've never heard of that hotel, sorry, but I can tell you: rent that car! Florida has almost no useful public transportation to speak of. A car will make you much, much happier. Be warned, however, drivers in Miami drive more like those in Europe and South American than is typical elsewhere. Drive defensively!
