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.

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

I booked the Pestana South Beach as a lucky dip hotel thru one of the major booking websites and was first disappointed, but they got better and better thru the stay. The hotel itself did open in March or April 2013. So the furniture, beds and other equipment is kind of nice and in well shape - but they got... More

Arriving at the hotel we were greeted by two lovely gentleman who were so sweet, enthusiastic, and complimentary. I do not recall their names but if you are greeted by them you will know exactly who I'm talking about! But the best part of the trip was meeting the most friendly helpful people who worked poolside and at the café.... More

Started off great....welcoming and friendly staff at checkin. Hotel is aesthetically pleasing and in a great location....only minutes from Lincoln. Pool is also lovely and nice to spend time lounging around. The biggest issues were 1) the noise...walls are thin, which is to be expected in a hotel but you can hear everything from the hallway when people come in... More

Wonderful experience. The staff upon arrival was welcoming. Bellman was courteous and helpful. Self parking was a couple blocks away at a valet garage. $30 a day. But this is SoBe which is about average. Just would've been nice if you didn't have to drive yourself for drop off. Room had a nice comfy king bed. No room for luggage... More
