Excellent location. Not far away from the Rumble of Ocean Drive or Collins. A quiet Hotel with the beach, Collins e Washington Avenues at a mere 2 minute walk. At an affordable price. it is the ideal place to be in Miami. The staff is friendly and the bed is wonderful. Remember that although it was remodeled 2 years ago... More

This Hotel is VERY PREJUDICE against their "ethnic" workers. I Watched the way they make them work like servants and the Hispanics do all the "light" work. The workers that they treat badly are mainly the ones who got everything done while we were there. At first glance the Hotel is gorgeous, but once you get inside and checked in... More

Perfect location compared to the area. The street is so quiet but just around the corner is Collins Ave with all the shops and restaurants. And the beach is just 5 min. walk away. The staff was very friendly and helpfull and the hotel (rooms and pool-area) was very clean. I will come back again !!!

We spend 3 night with my kids and my best friends, the location is GREAT, it is just 3 blocks from the beach and the main boulevards; the team was really kind and helpful. All in white color (inside & outside). Good ambiance and the kids spend long hours in the swimming pool without any issues.....I will strongly recommend this... More

I was a little worried about this hotel. I had read some dodgy reviews. But I had nothing to worry about. Firstly the room was so bright, clean and airy, all white and so comfy. We had a room 1203 which was facing the lift so we heard guests coming and going, tho we didn't complain since it wasn't unbearable.... More

Loved the location and the décor was nice. Fine for a couple of nights stay at the end of our holiday to get a feel for Miami Beach because main areas very close and lovely art deco style. Rooms small so would not be great for a family for more than a couple of nights.

But the bedroom was not so great, the pillows had stains, the bathroom had hairs and the walls were scratched all around, small details but.. that i consider important. The bed was great. This Pestana was not so great like others... More
