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. I travel a lot and usually stay at the same hotels, but this is the only hotel... More

The location of this hotel is exactly where you want to be, just off the beach with a short walk to the Lincoln road area of shopping and eating next to some of the posher Art Deco options. Hotel is a small Art Deco building, rooms and bathrooms relatively small but you expect this with Art Deco. Limited number of... More

Dear Guest, Thanks a million for your upbeat comments about our central, beachfront location and comfortable accommodations. I regret that the private concession handling beach chairs and umbrellas just beyond our gate wasn’t operating when you visited. I hope you were able to work on your tan in our tranquil pool and patio areas. We all look forward to your... More

First off the location is great. on the right side of collins, straight into the beach and also in a very good block in Collins avenue. However the rooms aren't clean (the air conditioning outlets are filthy), the staff (especially the parking) aren't friendly, the breakfast is packed with people all the time and is weak. My room was extremely... More

Dear Guest, I’m glad you enjoyed our beachfront location in the heart of South Beach. Historic properties like ours do have structural challenges when compared with brand new properties, and your feedback is important to us. Thank you for taking time to write.

This petite oceanside resort is nestled between larger hotels but holds its own with an elegant, serene poolside area, casual outdoor bar and eating nook and hammocks and sundeck, all on the same small property. A full, hot and generous breakfast is included, and although the rooms are small and modest, the sheets are soft and the towels are thick.... More

My wife and I just came back from South Seas. We have been going there for about five years. Great location and access to the beach. Staff is very friendly especially Ana and Laura at the front desk. Rooms are very clean. They serve a hot and cold complimentary breakfast everyday from 7 am to 10 am, which is very... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the South Seas Hotel. Though nicely located with direct access to the beach, the entire hotel is old and needs updating throughout. The rooms are small with some cosmetically upgraded. Even though we had reservations for a king bed, the front desk gave us a so-called queen. We were then upgraded to a... More

I had quite good experience with this hotel from check-in to check-out. The hotel has straight access to the beautiful beach. Pool area has plenty of space and we enjoyed the time there. The location is very near to the Lincoln Road Mall and we had good lunch and dinner. I think the price is reasonable in this expensive beach... More

The hotel is trying to upgrade it's image and is 60% there. The rooms are fine, not great but clean and decent linens. Interestingly the 5 start part of this hotel is the restaurant.
