Good Couple Trip

The decorations are nice and the location is really close to the beach. The rooms are a bit small, but expected for the location and price. The overall experience is pretty nice.

Perfect location! Amazing staff!

Really enjoyed my stay at the Gale! The staff was so friendly, they drove us to a few places with their golf carts which was faster than a taxi! So close to the beach and all the bars and clubs!

Perfect 1 night stay at the Gale

Check in was at 4pm but the lovely lady at the front desk kindly checked me in way early (7am!). Very clean and comfortable rooms. The pool area is beautiful, great view. Location is pretty ideal. My only negative experience was the pool bar/snack area being closed while I lounged.

Really nice

Fantastic. Great location, good amenities. Only blips were an elevator broke, our room wasn't cleaned until late afternoon(but done well), and the pool bar should be utilized more for late afternoon and evening fun. We would stay there again.

Great weekend getaway

Great hotel! All hotel staff was extremely friendly! Only suggestion is maybe have visibility from windows rather than covered to bring more light into the room. Other than that, great location, clean, comfortable and very nice!

Educator's Getaway

After a long and difficult school year, I traveled to South Beach with a group of co-workers for a school let out celebration. I got a great package deal where I paid $450 for hotel and flight (never fly Spirit airlines btw). While I was very disappointed with my choice of airline, I absolutely LOVED my stay at Gale South Beach. All of the staff members were extremely friendly and ensured that we were well taken care of. I received a text message from the Head Concierge each day of my stay asking if they could assist in making my stay more enjoyable. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the rooftop pool was breathtaking. The hotel offers free transportation along the strip between the hours of 12pm-10pm. This came in handy and was utilized during the day to shop, eat, and go to the beach. Attached to the Gale is a coffee/lounge/restaurant called the Dolche. If you are a coffee lover, PLEASE give them a try. They were excellent! I would definitely stay at this hotel again. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because it wasn't a beach front hotel. It is still however within walking distance of a lot of great restaurants and shops.
