I went to the Setai for a business event. I had a couple of drinks and when I checked my checkings account online I noticed they overcharged me. I tried to call to the Setai several times but no one was ever available. I had to leave several voice messages and one day someone decided to call me. I explained... More

This hotel doesn't miss a beat when it comes to offering a classy, sexy, upscale, perfect stay! It is gorgeously decorated throughout and the rooms have a very special touch! The Setai is also in a great location in Sobe so it makes it very convenient! Hands down, the outdoor zen garden/bar is the most romantic places I have been... More

Had high expectations based on reviews read on Trip Advisor and on the experiences of friends who have visited the hotel. Overall, I enjoyed our stay and the hotel lived up to my high expectations. It is a beautiful resort with every luxury expected in a five star destination. Location in heart of South Beach is huge plus. It is... More

This hotel is by far the best on Miami Beach. It is absolutely 5 star with all the amenities and service you would expect. The staff is very friendly, professional and is well trained in hospitality. They never refuse any request. Extra chocolates in the evening - no problem. Can I have a smoothie while sitting in the courtyard and... More

Perfect retreat on the beach. Our room was beautiful, as was the view over South Beach. Everything oozed calm and quiet which is what we were looking for. The beach beds and service were fantastic, as were the pools. The service was outstanding and very friendly. And the little muffins and macaroons housekeeping left were a very nice, and delicious,...

The three pools were fantastic. i do not think i will ever stay any where else when visting Miami. An absolutely stunning... More

We did a 2-day Miami escape, and this was the perfect pick. If you are looking for action, stay at the Fontainebleau. This place is about peace, comfort, uncrowdedness, attentive service that is not pretentious, and superb food/drinks. From the carefully configured grounds, comfy pool beds, amazing cocktails, the place oozes quiet luxury. An international clientele--not many guests were speaking... More

Just like all the men and women that are in South Beach....the Setai is a monument to that perfection as it were....... you will be able to enjoy a beautiful lunch and watch the ocean wash over the remains of the day.

The Setai hotel has to be my favourite of all, its a pleasure to stay there, everything is just truly fantastic. Arriving from airport is a flat fee by cab $33 but you need to go into the lower ground/basement to get the taxis which is not obvious at Miami airport. Expect to wait a long time for your baggage...

We had been numerous times at the Setai for drinks and brunch (we are locals) and decided to stay for a weekend. The Setai is a welcomed respite from the chaos you often find in other hotels in MB, went to dinner at Hakkasan and just walking into the FB lobby made me glad to be staying elsewhere. The service...
