My husband and I just returned from a long weekend at the Sea View hotel located in Bal Harbor. The hotel was nice as well as all of the staff that we encountered during our stay.

Dear Karis B, As always we appreciate our guests comments. We are pleased that you had a great stay with us and the hotel was to your liking. We are currently completing the installation phase of our new split-unit air conditioning system, which would explain the holes in the ceiling in some spots. Due to this renovation, we sometimes use... More

The staff here was not friendly and didn't make my boyfriend and I welcomed. we are a younger couple and seemed as if we were judged because of that. There were several instances that the door man wouldn't even hold the door open for us and just scolded is as we left and arrived. We were always very respectful and... More

Wonderful stay, will definitely return for another stay. Pool is amazing and hotel is very quiet. Option to pay $20 resort fee or pay for lounge chairs only when used. This is an excellent option since most resorts charge a resort fee automatically whether you use the amenities or not. Complimentary breakfast is delicious with choice of omelets, eggs made... More

We recently spent a quick weekend vacation at Sea View. We checked in on May 30th and had such a bad experience we almost left right then. There was an older man working who never smiled, never looked up and basically grunted at us when he handed our key. There was also a tall blondish woman working who was horrible.... More

The Hotel is beautifully located in front of the sea, near to the Bal Harbor shopping mall. It has a swim pool and a private beach. The facilities are not new and if you are an international traveler you'll need ti bring with you an adaptor as they only have US outlets and no USB doors. Breakfast is quite simple... More

I would absolutely stay here again. This hotel looks ok from the outside, but is pleasantly well kept inside and by the pool. Our room was good and the balcony was enjoyed. The staff in the restaurant was very friendly. We walked to the shops for dinner and loved being able to walk on the beach in the morning. Very... More

We were delighted to find this gem on Miami Beach. It has all the modern comforts (comfortable king bed, great wi-fi, attentive staff) but you feel like you've stepped into 1950's Miami. You don't need a car as you are a short walk to Bal Harbour Shops and the restaurants of Surfside. We can't wait to return next winter.

This hotel was more than we expected. The staff was warm and gracious. Piano bar was a night well spent with guests and residents. This well maintained 1947 hotel is rich in history and elegance. Location is private with a beautiful secluded beach, yet within walking distance of popular shopping and restaurants.
