Overview

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.

Solid choice in a fantastic location

Would recommend Fri, Dec 18, 2015
This hotel is directly on the beach in my favorite part of SoBe - a little north, but still within walking distance, of Ocean Drive. I like being here because you can walk to the madness of Ocean Drive if you want to, but you can also escape it when you want to. The hotel is an older art deco property. The pros: the pool, the pool area, the restaurant bar (and bartender) are great, in room keurig, free wifi, very clean rooms. The cons: the rooms are small, they are not really very updated, the front desk staff isn't friendly. They aren't rude, they just don't bother to look up to say hello when you walk by. All in all, I would stay here again because the rooms are clean, its directly on a great stretch of beach and its a good price compared to other hotels in the area.

Great location. Great staff. I've stayed here and other hotels in the immediate area for several years. The SS hotel is getting a bit tired for the money. The air conditioning seemed to stop intermittently at night?? I really didn't get the resort fee added at check-in - they SHOULD have disclosed that in their hotel info/advertising and at time of booking. I would recommend the South Seas based on the specific traveler's expectations.

Every time I come here, the customer service and friendliness of the staff makes my vacation go fabulous! I have been here 4 times and I am going to keep going back. The room is clean and cool. the swimming pool is a perfect size, the breakfast hits the spot, the walk is to the beach is quick and convenient.

Great Location

Would not recommend Thu, Jun 4, 2015
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!

Great Miami Beach hotel

Would recommend Mon, Apr 6, 2015
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

Would recommend Sat, Feb 28, 2015
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

Would recommend Mon, Jan 5, 2015
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

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

Would recommend Mon, Jan 5, 2015
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.
