This Collins Avenue boutique hotel satisfies South Beach fantasies with its ocean and city views. Its chic address puts it near the hottest clubs, boutiques and, of course, the beach. The boutique property sprinkles tropical touches throughout with a bougainvillea framing the entrance and romantic tiki torches surrounding the pool area, which doubles as a spa, cafe and bar. 
Rooms
The rooms follow trademark South Beach boutique style by using bold colors and minimalism to create an urban edge. Plush white duvets contrast with teak headboards and slate throw pillows. Orange drapes frame partial city or ocean views via large picture windows. Remodeled bathrooms come with fresh chrome fixtures, white ceramic tile, pedestal sinks and hair dryers. Flat-screens TVs and free Wi-Fi access round out the amenities.
Property features
The intimate hotel pampers guests with massages and body scrubs in the Palm Garden, an open-air retreat with chaise lounges, cabanas and a pool. On Saturday mornings, practice the warrior position during free yoga sessions. Guests flock to the pool area everyday for the complimentary hot breakfast and cocktails and light fare from Pilikia Cafe. Make it a point to lie in a hammock with a mojito in hand. As the tiki torches twinkle in the South Beach air, visitors will want to linger all they can.

Great Location

Location is great. Rooms are super TINY. Staff could be more welcoming upon check in. Free daily breakfast, towels and chairs are supplied which is great because it is unlike any hotel in the area, but you are not told ANY of this at check-in... If you need the bell captain upon checkout or your car from valet call about 40 minutes before you actually need to leave or you will be waiting all this time! Review your bill closely at checkout, extra restaurant charges and parking charges were added and front desk staff makes you feel as if they are doing you a favor to remove them from the bill, as if you are cheating or trying to get over on them! Since this staff is the first contact anyone has with the hotel I'd recommend REPLACING these two ladies!

Wonderful place

This is a really beautiful, well placed resort. Very nice that there is the breakfast by the gorgeous pool right by the path to the beach. Comfortable rooms, valet parking. Very nice.

Great Miami Beach hotel

Had a lovely stay at this beautiful hotel. Located in great spot on busy Miami Beach the resort is very quiet considering all that happens around it. We were in room 214 and the weekend of the Ultra concert had stayed at another rest that was too loud for us, this one was really nice. Beautiful pool area, very nice breakfast included in rate. Very nice staff. Room was good especially considering it is an old building like many in South Beach. Elevator really slow (only issue). Late check out was happily accommodated at no extra cost. Valet $29 per day was usual price & staff was really nice.

A gem of a hotel

We stayed 3 nights and were pleased with the location, the pool, the food and the customer service especially by the front desk people. There is a lovely shaded spot where you can hang out on hammocks. The poolside food service was great and the pool was large and beautiful. Watch for the resident iguana who likes to dine on lettuce leaves!

Excellent hotel with great locaiton

South Seas is a excellent hotel in one of the best locations in Miami Beach. Room is clean and neat. The staff are just wonderful from reception to the maids and bell hops to the pools and restaurant staff - Just the nicest people. My only complaints are the beds are too small and the TV should be mounted on the wall. I will not hesitate to use this hotel again. I made a very late reservation for the New Year holiday and was charged a premium but advance booking and off-season should bring the price down. A+++ Breakfast can be a lot better. Same combination of scambled eggs, sausage and potatoes every morning. Not the best. I had breakfast elsewhere.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Do the Lincoln Rd/Ocean View dining just once for the experience but otherwise avoid. Overpriced beyond belief and quality is questionable. Instread head down to Aroma Expresso Bar (2 blocks) for superb coffee and eats. Or Crema - also 2 blocks on Washington Av. Peruvian restaurant called Chalan on the Beach on Washington Av is excellent. Sultan Mediterranean Restaurant on Collins about one block from hotel is also good but a little pricey.

Nice place to stay

Nice location -- the pool area opens right onto the beach. Near plenty of restaurants, but at the same time, not on a crazy, loud block. It's a somewhat older hotel, but the room was clean and nicely decorated, and the pool was nice. Not over-the-top luxury, but a nice place to stay. We'd certainly return.

Comfortable hotel and great location for beach.

Location, location, location! This hotel is in a great location and within walking distance to good shopping, excellent restaurants, and only minutes from the beach. Staff very helpful and friendly. Noisy air conditioner in room was only downside. Good value for money!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Short walk to wonderful restaurants in Art Deco area, and slightly longer walk to very cool selection of restaurants on beach front. Best part, only minutes to walk to the beach.
