My room at Sense Beach House exceeded expectations and was in immaculate condition. All the furnishings seemed brand new, and the shower is something you'd find in a $750,000 home. There were also several small touches that gave this boutique hotel a distinct up-scale feel ... bathrobes & slippers provided, Molton Brown soap/shampoo, modern big screen LCD television, beach towels...

I stayed at the Sense Beach house in September and it was absolutely wonderful. The staff was friendly the food was great and the room was clean and quiet! A perfect location when you do not want to be in the middle of a South Beach party not a far walk from the party either! Loved it!

For what it is, it's a great small boutique hotel. The decor and furnishings are modern and the location is perfect. Restaurant food was surprisingly delicious, as were the cocktails. Full bar at the restaurant is great. Beach is a block away and great restaurants and shopping are in walking distance. We are yoga practitioners and walked to a different... More

I love this nice small hotel. The hotel was very quiet , small and clean. I would recommend this hotel for those that don't want to stay at party hotel. This is also one of the very few hotel that actually have a pool on ocean drive.

I reserved this hotel for my last night of a March Break trip to Florida through Booking.com. I received confirmation of my booking several days before my arrival. When I arrived at the hotel, I was informed that the hotel did not have my room as they had over-booked and honoured someone else's booking and found another hotel for me.... More

I loved the beachy design and feel of this South Beach Hotel, it is so unique for the area! The location and price were great. You’re one block from the beach, right off of the main drive. Service was excellent, and our room was wonderful. We slept great, the beds really are very comfortable! The rooftop pool was very nice,... More

The rooms are nice with a great modern design. The beds are some of the most comfy I have stayed in. I really liked the design of the entire property. It is a few blocks north of Prime 112, a yummy steakhouse. The restaurant in the lobby was delicious and I would recommend. The beach is right across the street.... More
