We stayed at the South Seas 04/09. The location was good. It's not exactly in the heart of South Beach, but I really enjoyed the location. It was close enough to walk everywhere. There were restaurants/bars across the street and the South Seas restaurant/bar serves great food. The drinks were good too. The staff is very friendly especially in the restaurant. It rained a few nights, but we were able to sit down at the bar and still enjoy ourselves bc it's a combination indoor/outdoor and the roof shelters from the rain. The rooms are not extravagant, but nice. They have the feel of a bedroom or B&B much more than a hotel (ie Holiday in or other chain). Breakfast was good and the lounge area is nice. I think it's the best value in the area. We checked the prices on neighboring hotels and they were much higher. We would stay again.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED AND WILL BE BACK04/22/2009

The front desk people were very welcoming and pleasant from the time we arrived untill check-out. Me and 3 of my girls went down for a long wknd and this hotel was the perfect location...walking distance to shopping, dining, and clubbing. Both the room and bathroom were clean and fresh. We were a lil' skeptical b/c of some of the reviews we read b4 booking the trip, but it turned out well. The rooms are tiny and nothing fancy, but you are hardly in the room. The hotel offers valet parking ($29 a day) and the service was speedy for the most part, they say it takes 20MIN to get your car, i dont recall waiting even 10MIN. The pool was clean and is open till 12A and the beach is within walking distance from the hotel. Yes, you have to rent a beach chair ($10 all day) but that's SoBe for ya! Continental breakfast was also good. My only thing was the rooms don't have a fridge/microwave and you can not reserve 1 for your arrival, its on a 1st come 1st serve basis, needless to say we never got 1 in our room, but we survived, CVS is 2 blocks away!

Luxury is a stretch. There is NO fitness center. there is a treadmill and a bike in a hut by the beach- no tv, no ait conditioning. Rooms are dingy, bathroom had chipped paint and molding all over the ceiling. You are charged $15 to use a gym down the street. Feel free to sit by the pool but beach umbrella's and a chair will run you $25. Might as well pay a bit more and stay at a better hotel with these items included. Hallways in hotel are dingy and carpet very stained and stale smelling. The front of the house is not warm and welcoming. Staff appear indifferent and mostly annoyed. If it wasn't for the great food at the lounge and the very solicitous bartenders the trip would have been a nightmare. It may be a good deal in a good location but not sure the squeeze is worth the juice. Would not stay again.
Overall, a nice stay.03/12/2009

The front desk agents had no clue about Miami when we'd ask them about cool clubs, bars, restaurants, lounges, quick lunch, etc in the area. They could only refer places in the immediate 2 block radius of our hotel. Otherwise, the room was a nice size, clean, quite with a very comfortable king-size bed with lux sheets/comforter. Don't be fooled by the word ""Oceanview"" because in reality, you can see the neighboring hotel's pool and only a sliver of ocean in the far distance from your window. The continental breakfast had a nice spread of fresh juices, all types of cereal, cold cut meats and cheeses, hard-boiled eggs, strawberry bread, multi-grain breads, English muffins, french toast (my favorite) with syrup, flavored coffees, assortment of teas, fresh fruit, jams, butter, cream cheese, milk, soymilk. Also there was a toaster and toaster oven to create any type of culinarymasterpieces. The pool area was very nice and quiet except when the hotel next door throws loud, pumping Saturday pool parties starting at 10AM. The pool was large, clean and HEATED (very important). Unlimited beach towels. Hammocks out back are a nice place to catch some zzzz's or just read a book. Just further out back is the gated exit for direct beach access. Not included are the beach chairs or umbrellas, $10 and $15 respectively. I also loved the hotel's central location. I forgot to mention the very convenient free internet room. One other complaint I had was that the room attendant did a very nice job tidying up the room but one day she shoved my nite clothes in a dusty corner of the floor next to the nightstand in the process. I hope it was inadvertantly done.

We got an ocean view room (on side, ocean front is just an ocean view from the front), which was nothing special because windows are not large and there are essentially no balconies. Room was nice, although a little dated, had a refrigerator and a nice flat screen. Bathroom was a little tight with limited, if any countertop space. King bed was great. Pool area was outstanding and towels almost always available, with plenty of lounging chairs in sun or shade as preferred and in February... Miami Beach was the perfect place to be, 80 and sunny all three days. Beach and boardwalk are easily accessible behind the hotel pool area. We did not have a car and the airport cab was $32 ea way. We walked to Ocean Drive restaurants on Southern South Beach about a half mile away. Also short $5 (plus tip) cab ride if you're not a walker. Also a nice mall area nearby at Lincoln and Washington a few blocks away with tons of restaurants, shopping and people watching. Hotel Bar and restaurant nothing fancy but nice for lunch at drinks by the pool during the day. Free wireless good. Staff was not overbearing and mostly invisible, and that is the way I like them, if you want pampered by staff....this may not be the place for you. European Continental Breakfast (comes with room) was very good and included cold cuts and boiled eggs along with other usual fare. This hotel is smack in the middle of a very nice hotel district, but homeless and wierdos on s Package liquor available across the street and beer and wine also at nearby 24 hour Walgreens and CVS. We would definitely come again in February....Miami has best weather in continental US this time of the year.
