I stayed for one night pre cruising from Miami in November this year. The hotel is in a good location within walking distance of Washington Avenue and Collins Avenue and about 15 minutes walk from South Beach itself. The reception is functional but not overly impressive, there is a bar/restaurant which is a little pricy and the rooms are clean... More

My friends and I had a great weekend staying at the Pestana Miami Beach during Art Basel this year. The hotel is right in the middle of all the action! Right around the corner are miles of beautiful beaches, shopping on Lincoln Road and nightlife on Collins Ave. The hotel staff couldn't have been friendlier! Accommodations are basic, comfortable and... More

The bed was terrible. I felt like I was going to fall through every time I sat/laid on it. I had two cockroach experiences... More

We found this hotel to be in a very nice part of South Beach Miami, it was more in the neighbourhood but was still very close and within walking distance of all the shopping, restaurant and beaches. We did have to leave the housekeepers some notes each day to ask them to leave an extra tea bag etc and there... More

We stayed only one night here before a cruise. I wish we could have stayed longer. It's a beautiful, clean and stylish hotel within walking distance to everything from the beach to restaurants to nightlife! The pool looked lovely, wish we could have taken advantage of it but it was stormy when I was here! Our room was spotless and... More
