Our stay at the specific hotel was very pleasant. Clean rooms, clean bedsheets and towels, friendly staff. Excellent location since we didnt have to use our car for the beach and nearest restaurants and bars. I will definetly suggest this hotel to friends visiting Miami.

Room was bright and clean. The beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was lovely. Staff very friendly. Only thing is that we asked for a wake up call as we were going on a cruise and we never received the call. But overall I would stay in this hotel again.

This is a typical Miami Beach hotel, 2 blocks from the beach, right in the heart of Miami Beach. The room was very good, clean, comfortable and recently renovated. The service was excellent, quick and effective (they changed us room immediately when we asked for a bit more space). The breakfast is rich and served by the pool. Wi-Fi was... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in July. Amazing hotel & helpful staff. Breakfast not included but room was great except for plug sockets being in strange places! Couldn't use the kettle unless we put it on the floor! Great location, short walk to the beach and we walked to Ocean Drive. Pool was lovely & warm and not many people... More

We LOVED this hotel. Location was fantastic, service was great, and the pool was beautiful. The price for the quality was very reasonable compared to others. We had a blast and would definitely come back.

This hotel is near most South Beach atractions, without being too hasseled by all the tourists. Is a small hotel with charming, simply but beautifully decorated rooms, great wi-fi coverage (free and fast) and warm welcoming staff.

Adding to a business trip nearby, I took the chance to stay 4 days in Miami, and I picked the Pestana South Beach. I wasn't disappointed, the hotel is small compared with most of South Beach hotels, but this makes it easier and quicker to handle any issue. I didn't try out the pool, as I was more focused on...
