This is our second year in a row staying at the Tides. My Mom and I came for a girls vacation last year as the result of a package deal being offered on Travelocity. We loved it so much that we returned this year!!! This is one of the nicest, cleanest, largest hotels I've ever stayed at...and I've stayed at... More

A truly terrible night. It is midnight, we have a 10 year old and there is a full scale party going on in the bar next door. Unbelievably loud music has kept us awake and apparently it is a nightly occurrence. They don't make you aware of this on their website. We have cancelled the rest of our stay here... More

The first time we stayed at this hotel which has one of the best locations on South Beach was with my family in 2011. This time we went on our own, as a couple. We had a wonderful room on the 8th floor, but it was not as we would have like a corner room. So we asked, but we... More

We checked in at around 9am on a Thursday night. There is seating on the pavement for people wishing to dine alfresco and we had to walk with our cases through the diners and up the stairs to the hotel. Check in was quick and efficient with no airs and graces. The room was a little tired but very comfortable... More

We have been to south beach many times for a day out but never stayed overnight. Have always thought the tides was the most beautifully designed art deco building on ocean drive but had never been beyond the ground floor interior, which is most impressive. After reading reviews decided to book 3 nights despite warning of noise. Our stay far... More

Myself and my husband stayed here on honeymoon in January 2014. The location is perfect, right on South Beach and the room was really big and lovely and clean. We had a view right out onto the beach which was brilliant. The pool area was nice although the view from the pool is awful and we were unfortunate enough to... More

Popped in here for lunch on a short stay to miami: The positives: - There were fans blowing cold air at us - We got food, eventually The negatives: - Service was slow. I mean REALLY slow. We ordered drinks, and 45 minutes later they arrived. Even after asking twice about where they were. If it was busy, I might... More

My partner and I went to this hotel for a short getaway weekend to celebrate my birthday. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. We walked around and saw that they take very good care of the hotel and the grounds. What a gorgeous room. Thank you for my champagne and fruits. Thank you also to David Mills for... More

Beautiful room. Well-appointed and clean with a tremendous view. Great staff willing to help any way they can. Beautiful mezzanine pool which is a quiet retreat if you want to get away from pulsing Ocean Drive. If there is any advice I can give that would help…the rooms come with two chairs and an umbrella provided by a professional firm... More

Great corner room with good view. Housekeeping and reception very good, hotel a little dated. Pool nice for relaxing. Beach close by. Bar guy so great , not cheap though. Good location. Gym small but sufficient. Lots of choice in area for food so wasn't busy.
