We came there with a four days reservation made blind with hotels.com. Unfortunately we got a room with a view to the wall of just another hotel, no sky, no city, no trees, no park, no pool: just a wall in a distance about five feet. Ouch! This was really deceiving, being in Miami Beach and just looking into a... More

This is my 2nd trip back and what a disappointment. We booked an ocean view room. Our room did not overlook the ocean as advertised. Our room did, in fact, overlook a construction zone. I’m not sure if the new pool is going to be at the South Seas or at the neighboring resort but a large hole in the... More

I normally dont write reviews but I was pretty upset with my stay at south seas. My wife and I booked the penthouse suite which cost us over 600$ a night. With the exception of the ocean view the room was pathetic. There was broken tiles throughout the room. The grout between the tile was breaking apart and crumbling. The... More

Location: very good for south beach. But don't forget to ask if the beach loungers and umbrellas are included...if not it's $15 per chair/umbrella per day. Staff friendliness: very unfriendly.

its a hotel that needs an upgrade- the hammocks are the best feature- chipped furniture, stained ned covers, old stinky carpets. ok as a cheap family alternative to a higher end hotel- the pool bar and beach aspect is great but the hotel is tired.

I have never written a review in my life, so the fact that I am going out of my way to write this really shows how horrible my experience was at the South Seas Hotel. I went to Miami from 4/3-4/7. The hotel was more like a motel. The photos online are completely false. There are NO ocean views or... More

The hotel staff were very attentive and friendly. The pool and beach area were lovely, as was the simple but adequate included breakfast which could be eaten inside or at the poolside. The hallways were kind of dingy, and the room was tiny (328), but the bed was nicely made and comfortable. Since we didn't spend much time in the... More

The staff was competent; the room was spotless. Food limited and 'so-so,' but it has a beautiful pool and it's just a straight walk from the back gate to the ocean. Nestled between big, luxurious and expensive 5 star hotels, this unassuming hotel is worth every penny. Rooms are small (a few are unacceptably small, but most are OK), but... More
