Breaking news: Long hidden pool location from opening montage. I watched the Pilot on blue ray today and what a difference. One of the things that stood out was the clarity of the background in this shot. wpa3da07f2.pngWhile this is an old screen capture and we don't see that clarity, it was clear to me now with my current knowledge and experience where this must have been filmed. Location found. Grove Island Resort and Spa on Grove Island.

Yup, I too have always wondered about that one. Quintessential Miami Vice shot.

Awesome find!  Last summer, I spent many hours staring at this screenshot and trying to match it with the Trust Fund Pirates house but finally I decided that it wasn't right.  It never even occurred to me to look at Grove Isle.

I really need to get a Blu-Ray setup this Xmas.  C'mon Santa!  :gift:

Although this short montage scene for the Pilot was shot at Grove Island - as far as I know MV never shot on the Island itself for any episode !

We saw the three condos on Grove Island many times in background shots mainly from Season 1 and 2 .:D:D

It's currently called Palmeiras Beach Club at Grove Isle.  Click the link for a larger version of that photo:

A few more :) The location was just north of Dinner Key Marina and south of Vizcaya.

Well it is private and a gate with a security guard but I mentioned I would like to view the hotel so did not need  access to 1,2 or 3 Grove Isle which are residential . I think this helped as you could have lunch at the club but these things are luck of the draw I find getting in or not getting in :fireworks:

Most of the racecourse side and the buildings have been demolished now with the new building there a casino . This is 5-6 km north of the Love Studios we see in "Stones War" and "Amen....Send Money" and west of Aventura.
