Gale South Beach

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This was my 27th Anniversary but my first real vacation with my husband. It was everything I could have dreamed of and more. The walk in marble tub and sauna was to die for. Staff was very friendly and helpful. It was awesome!

Don't have any complaints. Hotel is walking distance to everything. Great room and comfy bed and beautiful bathroom too. Would stay there again.

Room are too small , for additional space prob no door for bathroom on pictures this hotel looks better then in real life !!! I am not coming back to this hotel again!

The room was fine and clean. The staff was always super friendly. The restaurant is great and the happy hour at the bar is outstanding. However, the pool is DEFINITELY not as great as they claim it to be. I laid out there two afternoons and one time only one staff member came up (looked to be management) and the water and towels (or lack there of) were not replenished. The second time someone on the facilities staff came up and seemed like they were about to leave without putting out more towels (there were none) or refilling the water except another guest stopped them and asked. Also, I had no cable channels (literally just five local channels) and when I asked, they sent someone up who said that was correct, though the front desk said I should have cable. I said someone came up to fix it and did nothing. They said they would look into it and I never heard anything else. When I looked at my credit card a couple days after checking out I had a random charge from Gale. I called and they said it was a minibar item, which I did NOT use. It took a couple calls and a week to get the charge reversed. Annoying!

We had a great time! Our room was a bit small but it was clean, comfy, and cute!

Could not be happier with our vacation to South Beach. The weather, the food, and especially the hotel. Spend most of the time outside but nice to know that u have a wonderful room to come back to at the end of the day. Staff was friendly and informative. Overall a great place to be. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone.

Great spot! Very close to the beach and Lincoln Road shops and restaurants.

I stayed at the hotel for 6 nights and I am very satisfied with the room comfort and cleanliness, safety of the hotel and the entertainment. The staff was very friendly and professional.

There are 2 buildings that consists of this hotel ( one across the street from the Gale ). It smells like mold in some of the rooms in the htl building across the street Neither have beach front which is a hassle. Rooms are very small and nowhere to put suitcase or clothes.

Would like to return to the hotel the staff was great to work with and help me in different situations. Room service was spot on and the food there is great.

A good European atmosphere in a classic Hotel. Beautiful view from the roof top swimming pool area. 2 mn walk from the beach amazing sunrise... Nice for someone that want to have a town atmosphere very close to the beach....

By far one of the best hotel experiences I've ever had!

Nice room for quick getaway. Dolce restaurant was excellent and hotel offered many amenities.

The hotel was a block away from the beach! It was very nice.

The rooms are amazing,the staff is even more amazing. Fantastic location. Walking distance to all.Got off a cruise ship early. My room was upgraded to the Kascades(sister property,next door) which was to die for.Power toilet with power heated seat and bun warmer & bidet. Power curtains,big screen TV ,huge suite. The room is huge,has a balcony looking 17th st.Kascades has continental breakfast and Happy Hour. . Nice touch. Say hi to Jose, Dwight & Cassandra, they make it amazing.

great stay! hotel was beautiful with new renovations. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Great location in South Beach, a 2 minute walk to Lummus Park. Across from the Delano, Ritz, Sagamore, Marseilles, and Di Lido of the Ritz Carlton. Easy and safe for walking, shopping, dining and beaching. Very modern, contemporary hotel. Staff service is personalized with only 87 rooms. Roof top deck had beautiful 360 degree view. Pool water was bathtub warm in Dec, even with rain. 400 thread sheets were very comfortable. All linen was very white, almost like new. Instead of valet parking, walked only two short blocks away for safe public parking in a Miami Beach city lot for only $16 per day. Continental breakfast was included: coffee, juice, croissant, and a big bowl of fresh cut fruit. Concierge was knowledgeable and helpful. Good insulation: even on the second floor, never heard the restaurant, bar, or even night club. Lemon ice water available 24 hours a day even champagne in the evening. Fresh apples and bananas available in the fitness room. Wonderful place, and would return without any hesitation.

Wife and I needed a quick getway in South Beach. We had a lovely time at The Gale. I was a little caught off gaurd having an extra $70 per day in fees after prepaynig for the room, but I guess I should have expected it.. We would return for sure.

The staff is so accommodating and makes you feel so at home. They are friendly and make you feel like you have known them forever. Convenient location. I know the rooms are small but it would be nice to have a chair in the room. The rooftop pool is great with wonderful views. Restaurant wonderful.

Great place to stay. Very clean and convenient location.

not a beach front hotel

Students

There are 2 buildings that consists of this hotel ( one across the street from the Gale ). It smells like mold in some of the rooms in the htl building across the street Neither have beach front which is a hassle. Rooms are very small and nowhere to put suitcase or clothes.

Thank you for your feedback. It is important to note that, although we have a beach club, we are not, nor do we promote our hotel as a beach front hotel. Hotel rooms in Miami Beach, in general, are small but we go to great lengths to ensure that the space is optimized and used to its full potential. We are located at one of the busiest intersection in Miami Beach; it should be expected to hear some degree of noise from the area.Your feedback is appreciated and we will be sure to use it as a tool to improve on our guests' experience. We wish you the best in your future travels.
