Dream South Beach

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A great experience. The hotel staff was extremely accommodating and attentive. Smiles and yeses go a long way.

Enjoyed this property and the staff were especially pleasant and helpful. Unfortunately we weren't there to take advantage of the beach chairs that you're automatically charged for. Was also surprised to find see-through shower walls!! Yes, you can see the person showering if you happen to walk into the guest room when they're in the bathroom. Don't think I knew that in advance. Also, unfortunately many of the umbrellas on the roof top/pool area were broken (we were told due to storms that had come through a month before). It was too hot for me to sit in the sun (no shade was available), so I couldn't enjoy the pool area. Hope this gets fixed soon for other guests! Good location.

After paying for the hotel via Orbitz a $300 hold was still required as per hotel policy.

I had a great stay room was clean and it was really close to all the social sites I like the roof top pool as well i stayed in room 275 I have no complaints

This is usually our go to hotel in Miami. However, this past trip the hotel was definitely not what we were used to. The room was musty and stunk like it was wet and moldy. They didn't provide turn down service with a chocolate and a bottle of water. We were very disappointed this time and will probably look for a new hotel next time. We come to Miami usually 4-5 times a year.

Hotel staff was very friendly and very responsive. Although check-in time started at 3, we arrived around 1:30 and they allowed us to check-in early without a problem. Hotel room was clean and comfortable. Extremely close to the beach. The pool was pretty small, but it was never crowded. The pool area was very relaxing and quiet, not really suitable for any pool games or large floats. At the pool you could request a chair with or without an umbrella, or a bed. The major issue we experienced at the hotel was that the elevators frequently got stuck in which we had to call for service. When the elevator did not get stuck, the ride was pretty bumpy, especially when reaching the designated floor. Stairs are available which we tended to use more often than the elevator. The other minor issue was the mini fridge in the room. Fully stocked with drinks, alcohol had spilled before we had arrived and the fridge was very sticky and was never cleaned by the cleaning staff. Otherwise, the hotel was very clean and very comfortable, would definitely come back!

As a platinum member, I got upgraded to a suite and couldnt have been happier. The staff knows and remembers me, as this was my 6th trip in the last 16 months :) I always stay here and will continue to do so. Everything is outstanding and Ill be back in October.

Great experience I would recommend this hotel to family and friends

Had fun. Room was very clean an staff was very friendly

The staff was amazing,the wad having some bag smell ,all that time ,I even have to tell the cleaning lady abt it

The hotel itself is beautiful and the deco/layout of all the furniture were clearly all thoughtfully placed and selected. I love how pretty everything is! The pool is small but was never overly packed. I love that we were given free towels and chairs/beds. If you want a drink you can also grab one from the bar up there. There are so many opportunities for little photo sessions in front of different areas. With that being said, there isn't too much space that comes along with your King Bed Room. The lighting also isn't the best if you want to make sure your makeup looks good. So space and lighting are really the only things this hotel needs to improve on (minor adjustments). Not sure if this is worth noting, but one of the cleaning people entered while I was still changing and kind of barged in. We were checking out a couple of minutes late but I found it strange that after seeing I was inside still changing, the cleaning person still stood there as if he'd enter and clean with us inside. Maybe those situations could be handled a bit different? All in all, our experience here was positive and I would definitely still recommend the Dream.

Guest House was great only thing I wished was that they had a microwave and and refrigerator other than that my experience was great staff 1 of the nicest I've ever been around

Beautiful hotel in the heart of it all. Walking distance to lots of restaurants and bars. Very nice staff!

We stayed only one night at the dream. Overall had a great experience, staff was extremely nice and helpful from the front desk to valet and at the pool bar. The hotel is conveniently located on Collins and 11th so it's very central to everything. My only complaint would be the room size, it felt so tight and barely and space.

The hotel needs to revamp its furniture in the lobby and common areas. The hallway smelled but my room was very nice and very clean. The staff was very helpful. Especially Christian and Andrea and concierge.

Very clean, nice service, close to beach. Very nice rooftop pool

Central area. Close to the beach and great restaurants. Definitely hit up the Naked Taco and take full advantage of the custom mojito menu!

4th stay at the dream in the last 12 months. It's super convenient since it's 1 block from the beach and ocean drive. Tons of restaurants and entertainment options are in the area. I will be staying here again soon.

Nice hotel close to everything restaurants, beach.

Nice hotel. Clean close to beach. Nice size room, good food. Wish beach had food and drink service
