We've stayed at the South Seas a few times and each time is excellent!! It's location is perfect whether you want to spend a day on the beach, go to a performance at the Fillmore, or go shopping or dining on Lincoln Road or Espanola Way. They are all so close by! Even Ocean Drive is a reasonable walk away.... More

We just got back from a long weekend stay at the South Seas Hotel. What a wonderful experience! Friendly staff and a beautiful property. We had delicious meals and drinks at the Pilikia bar and restaurant, enjoyed spending time at the pool, and loved being able to walk right out onto the beach! It was also great to have breakfast...

I recently had to go to Miami for business and decided to take my husband and extend our stay a little. We chose the South Seas because it was right on the beach and was the most affordable in the area. The hotel was clean, the pool, hammocks and beach were lovely! This is a great place to stay if...

We booked to stay at South Seas for Easter weekend. It wasn't our first choice but other (nicer and cheaper) hotels were fully booked. The hotel looks good from the outside and is in keeping with the Art Deco style of south beach. The rooms are dark, slightly damp, and have dreadful views of garbage trucks on the street outside....

I have been traveling to Miami three times a year since 2004. This is the only place I stay, even though my sister-in-law works for Kimpton hotels and can get me amazing deals, I still choose to stay at the South Seas Hotel.
