Fantastic hotel ideal location for both restraunts on Espinola and Lincoln and walking distance to Ocean drive.The staff at the Pestana were very friendly and helpful and couldnt do enough. The rooms look to have had an upgrade recently and were very comfortable.We did like the photos in the room which reminds you of the hotels past.

Dirty pool and deck chairs, noisy corridor, loud air condition-impossible to sleep. Some of the staff trying to make us pay more for the breakfast and speaks poor English. Very poor service from staff, not helpful. Do not stay here.

We stayed last night in room 1109 after booking through Booking.com. We arrived late, around 11PM due to having to work. When we opened the door to the room it was extremely warm. The thermostat read 80. I informed Greg at the front desk and he sent someone to check it out. After resetting the unit my wife and I... More

Dear “rdemps01”, We are really sorry to hear we were not able to provide you with the experience you were looking for. Unfortunately and as you describe we were not able to anticipate the problem with the air conditioning in your room. We tried to fix it immediately and we were actually convinced that we did so as when our... More

Staff very friendly and helpful, a very busy hotel and they clearly do a good job at keeping people happy. Rooms are very light and airy and a good size, very modern and free wi-fi and safe in room. When we arrived there was not the twin room we had booked, but this was sorted the next day and we... More

It was my second stay at the Pestana South beach and this time it was even better, as rooms are better cared for, and the overall experience very good. The hotel location is not oceanfront but you walk to the beach in just 5 minutes! At much nicer as you have not to listen to music aloud in the pool... More

The room was spacious bright and modern. The cons were the view from the window - from building 3 was not great. The bathroom although clean could... More

Very nice location. Art deco buildings with excellent restoration. Charming pool facilities. At one step from Lincoln mall and South Beach. Parking is two blocks away, limited space for downloading and uploading to the car, at the street. Staff service is fine. It's expensive, as most of the sorounding hotels.

The hotel is located in a close distance of Lincoln Mall and the exhibition center in a silent street. Very good breakfast. The hotel is close to the see, The airconditioner is very noisy since it installed in the room, this is the only disadvantage.
