The Jazz Brunch on Sundays at The Setai on South Beach is simply great. It starts at 1130 so reserve for that time so that you can be seated outside where a jazz quartet plays lovely music while you enjoy a delicious brunch. The array of foods offered is truly amazing and even with the endless variety, it is generally very good. Asian, Indian, traditional American breakfast fare as well as beef and lamb roasts, seafood and dim sum, are offered with breads and beautiful pastries and desserts. The service is amazing and friendly and the Roederer champagne is poured freely. It’s $80 per person but worth it!

The hotel and staff were great! The room was beautiful, decorated in dark wood and slate. We ate at the pool once which was good, but ate all other meals at other restaurants in South Beach. Pao was outstanding! We did a fair amount of day drinking on site. The cocktails were great! I am more of a traditionalist, but the craft cocktails were interesting. We would definitely stay there again! Lives up to the hype!

Amazing luxury hotel on the beachfront in Miami. We had a lovely afternoon here with a great lunch and lovely weather in the best spot to overlook the ocean. Didn't stay here on this trip as we just stumbled across the restaurant on the ocean walk, but the pool area looked wonderful and I'd certainly stay here on a future visit.

Went to the Setai with my wife for 4 days of relaxation. It was amazing in every way! From the moment you enter the hotel it felt like nirvana. Very lovely scent, great service and attention at check-in, perfect romantic room. Restaurants at the hotel were so terrific that we never went anywhere else! Amazing, relaxing ambiance. Great food and drinks. What more could we want? Went to the beach one day, the 3 heated outdoor pools another, and the spa for a massage the 3rd day. Also went to the gym every day. Left the hotel only to walk along the boardwalk. But otherwise the whole place was the 100% package. Truly amazing weekend! We'll definitely be back.

I'll keep it straight to the point. Absolutely the best service of any hotel I've ever stayed at in Miami. Veronica - at the concierge desk - was an absolute angel, as were the rest of the staff. They were extremely helpful, and accommodating. It really made the stay THAT MUCH MORE enjoyable. My boyfriend got sick upon arrival - the entire hotel staff, did everything they could to make him and I more comfortable (including running to Walgreens to get medication) The hotel is beautiful, quiet, classy. The rooms and facilities are clean and in great condition.

As always a pleasure staying with the entire Setai family. The entire staff goes above and beyond and interior is top notch. I would recommend courtyard suite as a minimum as otherwise you face Collins Ave, the most breathtaking rooms are the ones in the tower of course. The best hotel in SoBe - no doubt! Check it out!

This is one of the best hotels in Miami, especially when it comes to atmosphere and surroundings. The location is absolutely ideal and the zen-like surroundings immediately provide calm. Having stayed for 10 days during what is most likely the busiest time of the year will really put a hotel to the test and the Setai did well. Here is a breakdown of our experiences: The Spa - We scheduled services every other day from massages to facial and the experiences were amazing. I had Mira who was great and my wife had a male therapist who was exceptional as well (I don't remember his name). I would highly recommend the service. Housekeeping - We had 2 rooms and they were always well serviced and we called housekeeping based on our schedule. Even when it was late, it was never a problem. This was during a very busy time. Beach and Pool Service - The attendants were very nice and always helpful. Getting food or drinks were sometimes challenging due to a large number of people being served. There was only one day where there was a wait for lounges, but it wasn't long before we were able to secure one. Restaurant - Food was delicious and servers were attentive for breakfast. It was very busy, but we never had to wait long. We only ate at the pool restaurant once but I noticed it did get very busy in the mid-afternoon. Overall, on one of the busiest weeks of the year, the staff handled it well and with grace. We really had a great time and will definitely be back!!

Visited Miami for my daughters' 25th wedding anniversary. Family and friends gathered at this hotel for the festivities. Three days of partying!! A wonderful stay at this 5-star facility. Staff was courteous and were able to provide us with excellent service. Their buffet breakfast was outstanding and room service was fast and efficient. My suite was clean and spacious with lots of sunlight. The views from my room were not that great and mostly I was looking into other people's suites.The hotel provided guests with Aqua di Parma toiletries which were a plus. On the whole, had a wonderful and memorable stay. Would recommend this hotel.

A really amazing place at the Setai is the beach bar. Overlooking the beach you can enjoy yourself having excellent food and drinks served by an excellent staff. Always having a smile on their faces regardless how stressful the situation is. They give you always the feeling to be welcomed at your home far away from home. Especially the staff behind the bar headed by a young lady is worth to be mentioned as they are the core of this amazing place.

We have stayed at many of the Leading Hotels in Miami but this probably the best we have experienced. All the staff is super supportive, helpful and friendly. After check-in we were shown to the room including a quick tour of the hotel facilities and explanation of things. It took about five minutes for the luggage to arrive in the room. Roomwise, well we chose one of the less expensive categories. Still with some restricted view of the ocean however, the ones with a full view have a significant higher price. Our room was quiet though they have a DJ on Fridays and Saturdays and eventually you will hear some noise which will stop at about midnight. Size of room is acceptable, amenities are from Italien brand "Aqua di Parma". Breakfast is nothing out of the ordinary and what one would expect for this category. Great pool area with enough space and some big sun beds at no extra cost. Beach - the same. Plenty of space. Very nice pool bar and again service is great. Gym though a little small and some more gear would make the experience here a lot better, however ok for a couple of days to work out. Jaya the restaurant is great food and elaborate menu. Valet service quick though $49/night is stiff. (The Setai is well located hence probably no car needed). Net net, we felt very much "at home" and our host took great care of us. One of the few we would recommend.
