I booked this hotel through Hotwire.com. I didn't see the hotel name until I booked and paid for it. It was listed as a 4 star hotel. It was far from being a 4 star hotel. I've seen better 2 star foyers. No ice machine on floor. Nice room and decor with no view. Breakfast at the restaurant was sub... More

We found this great hotel via an online reservation system; we wanted something close to everything and did not have to be right on the beach. This place was great! Wait, excellent! The staff was awesome, everyone from the bell boy, reception, pool bar restaurant staff, morning restaurant staff.... We went on this trip as four adults and 4 kids... More

Room reminds me of a poolside changing room. Wardrobe10" wide do we can't unpack. Pay 20 dollars extra per day to sit by the pool. Listen to people above clattering in their room, to folk yelling outside your window and up and down corridors. No breakfast included and grimy grouting in shower. Sadly we prepaid 3 nights.

Contemporary hotel and clean. Like that it was blocks from action but not on a major street so could park right in front to unload. Showers had large water heads for max flow. Wifi solid. No gym. Breakfast basic. Pool not crowded although only up to five feet deep. My room was closest to lobby. Very noisy at night when... More

I have absolutely no complaints about my stay in Pestana Hotel, Miami. The rooms were lovely, the location was fabulous and the service was brilliant. In particular the staff in the cafe went above and beyond in assisting me to make my stay comfortable - Steven, Moise and Endri were fabulous.

Nice budget hotel (not sure if it has 3 or 4 stars, 2-3 stars would be fair). I only stayed at this hotel for one night (checked in around 7 pm and checked out early next morning). Nice, clean and spacious room (felt a little budget though). Hotel is divided in 3 separate building. Main building looked much nicer than... More

We stayed at the Pestana 01/10/14 to 01/13/14 and were very pleased with the service. It was much improved from the stay we had in Summer of 2013. Location is very central to Convention Hall, Beach and Ocean Drive.

Stayed here for 5 nights over New Year and really enjoyed it. Great pool area - always clean and plenty of sun loungers, pool lovely and warm and bar / restaurant staff were great. Only slight downside for me was location, just a touch too far from the centre of Ocean Drive for us - only a mile, but when... More
