The Hotel location is very good and what you get for the price is good value. The room was very spacious although is was nice to have more space available to store clothes and your personal items. The decoration is cozy and clean, the perfect style for South Beach. The service was good and everybody was very friendly, fulfilling every... More

Was a bit apprehensive about this hotel as booked via the lottery that is Priceline so no idea at all what to expect. There was no need to worry; everything about it was absolutely perfect. Staff were professional and helpful throughout. I even saw the bartender helping a guest back to their room after they had overindulged. I didn't catch... More

This is a beautiful hotel in a fantastic location. I was in Miami on business for the first time and was pleasantly surprised by the high standard of this hotel. The staff, in particular, Endri and Steven, were extremely welcoming and their helpful and attentive service really made my stay memorable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel.

I stayed in Pestana for spring break and can I just say what a good time I had here! The staff at check-in were super nice and polite, I think their names were Tatiana and Sebastian, check-in was very quick and painless and we were shown to our rooms by a super attentive bellman. I noticed that the rooms were... More

Stayed here before a cruise and paid for 4 adults Very small room. I wasn't happy with the restaurant staff. He was not friendly at all. Expensive for what you get, but then everything in South Beach is expensive

First the good -- location by the beach, and good wifi. First night was quiet, but next night noisy, as we discovered the first night was a fluke with no neighbor. The bed is massively too soft, as are the pillows. Parking is 3 blocks away and costs an additional $30/day. The air conditioner was way too loud. There was... More

Spent 6 nights at this new art deco hotel. Excellent location, just two blocks from the beach and another two blocks from Lincoln Rd Mall. Very friendly and helpfull staff. Nice clean rooms. Nice heated pool. Good buffet breakfast. Definitely an excellent alternative to those pricey beachfront hotels. Will certainly return.

We stayed for 7 nights and from the moment we pulled up outside (in a hired Mustang) we were treated superbly. the cases were taken straight to our room and no tip was expected. The room was very large with excellent bathroom with toiletries that were refreshed every day, large TV, coffee machine, hairdryer etc. Pool was great - we... More

We ended up here after The Delores changed ownership the week before we arrived in town and wouldn't honor our reservation from the previous owner. I have never experienced this before. We found our rooms for Pestana on Hotwire. We stayed in Building #3 (there are 4 buildings). We had a very spacious rooms which were very clean. Remember, this... More
