We were warmly greeted from the moment we stepped into the hotel to the moment we left. The hotel itself looks exactly like the pictures on the website, the rooms were very spacious and everything from room to the foyer was beautiful and well decorated and the location is right near south beach and is close to many good restaurants,...

Great location , easy beach access,towels and beach chairs. The Service was the best part ! Chris at the front desk helped me find malls and good restaurants. Cons , the pool was and difficult to get a drink up there, unless you ask the restaurant bartender.

Me and my wife decided to take a trip to sunny south beach. We stayed at the sense beach house on ocean's drive. It was all very pretty and the service was great. It was our 3rd time in Miami and this time I wanted to stay close to the beach. Luckily Sense B.H. was only a block away. I... More

We were there for our honeymoon and they upgraded us to a wonderful huge corner room with ocean view. The bed was very confortable, and the shower very nice! It is just a block from the ocean, and they will arrange chairs with cooler, umbrellas,and beach bags with towels, all smelling fresh!!! The pools is very pleasant to go, they... More

They add a hefty $30 for "resort fee" to the bill, quite a bit if you're staying short term. Service in general also lacks professionalism. Reception generally gives off an air of unhelpfulness, and that you need to beg to get things done. The actual rooms don't look as nice as the photos advertised. Finishing is a bit cheap.

Very modern ,beautifully designed,cozy hotel with young and friendly stuff and relaxing atmosphere. Really liked the location :in the beginning of main promenade ,but not in the middle of crowds and party noises+ 2 min.walks to the beach.Looked like hotel's restaurant was good too as it was very busy through the weekend...Will highly recommend to anyone!!!!

The room was really big, clean and confortable! The partial view to the ocean was ok. The pool is small, but was good to refresh. The staff was very kind, specially Jessie. The restaurant was very good as well. The location is great, at Ocean Drive but in a quiet area. The beach was just 2 minutes walking. There aren't... More

We stayed at Sense Oct. 12-13 and unfortunately had far too many issues. Issue #1 (medium/large issue): We paid in advance for the room and had a confirmed King. When we check in they say "sorry, a pipe busted in your room so we can only place you in two doubles" there was no offer to compensate in any way... More

We stayed in this hotel for only two nights, but I wish it were more, because we had a great time here! The hotel is really nice and you actually have the feeling to enter a beach house when you come through the front door. With the natural color schemes and materials, they make you feel home in an second.... More
