Alfresco spa treatments and poolside cocktails at this SoBe hotel
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. 
Highlights
  • In the heart of South Beach
  • Heated outdoor pool and poolside dining at Pilikia Cafe
  • Complimentary hot breakfast
  • Free Wi-Fi
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.
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.

Comfortable place to stay

The South Seas is a comfortable, clean and convenient place to stay if you're heading to South Beach, Miami. All you need is in close walking distance. The fact that breakfast was included in the rate was great and the selection of food for breakfast was good. It was our first visit to the USA, so we can not compare to other hotels in the States.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The Miami Hop-On/Hop-Off Bus is a great way to see Miami. Tickets are valid for a full 24 hours (and some include a boat trip as well). There is a stop about 5 minutes walk from the South Seas Hotel.

You will be embarrassed to bring friends to your room!!

Hostel like!!! Small small room!! No decor. Cheap hard spring bed. Ceiling paper was peeling off. And walls were discolored. Piping was exposed in the room. Bathroom was so small ! Like ridiculous! plus the toilet was running ! Floors were creeky and so was the elevator. The elevator was only big enough for 4 & years past inspection! You would certainly be embarrassed to have anyone back to    these rooms!! Valet cost 30 which we agreed to pay. When we got our car we relized they drove it using a quarter tank of gas and stole several items of value... But their not liable. So WARNING: DON'T STAY HERE!

Great Hotel, Excellent Location

South Seas had it all.. nice pool, beach access, wifi, better-than-standard continental breakfast, typically small for Sobe but clean rooms, accommodating staff. Would definitely stay there again.

Winter Getaway

Good location on the beach and within short walking distance to the nightly action. Areas of improvement are things that would be quite difficult for this hotel to address such as small bathrooms and a single, slow elevator. Overall good experience for reasonable value

Don't get suckered into the oversized & over priced drinks ($25 per) that many of the restaurants were pushing.

One night business trip

Arrived at amost midnight and passed the hotel twice as it's not well marked and there's really no "main entrance" or driveway so we just kind of pulled up on the sidewalk and went to find the valet. Check in was easy and cordial. Our room was small but adequate and clean. But the big surprise the next morning was realizing the location was right on the beach with a great outdoor resataurant patio, large salt water pool, hammocks under the palms and easy beach access. Continental breakfast was nice, tool

Good on the ocean.

Stayed just one night before a cruise. Nice breakfast patio, pool, and beach access. Rooms are clean and comfy. Not a luxury hotel but a good value in an expensive area. Staff were helpful, sent us to a great Cuban restaurant nearby.

SHADY

The same day we checked out we got calls shortly after from our CC monitoring that week for about 1000 dollars in fraudulent charges. Also our sheets weren't changed the whole time we were there, and staff is extremely unfriendly. We think that the one friendly person there was the one who stole our financial info.. you get what you pay for...
