Over the past 10 years I've been staying at the South Seas 2-3x a year when I visit Miami. I was just there again a few months ago and just when I thought it couldn't get any better they add MORE amenities. I walk through the door and am immediately greeted by the warmest most helpful front desk staff. .Anna... More

Once again I returned to The South Seas where I was treated royally by the entire staff. My two favorites who welcomed me with their smiling faces each morning were Rosario and Marta. Kind,considerate and always polite. I wish there were more people like these two in my home town. The free breakfast had been improved upon and the cook... More

This hotel is located in a convenient location just a few blocks from Lincoln road and a nice walk to ocean drive. The bus stop is nearby if you want to take a bus downtown and visit the Bayside Marketplace. We were there from July 17th through the 22nd. I was there with my husband and 2 teenage kids 19... More

So staying here was a rollercoaster. The lounge and pool/garden area is very nice, and with the beautiful Beach nearby it's perfekt. But that Said the stairways, elevators and hallways are run Down and a bit to retro-ish. We haha rather exspensiv room due to the weekend which was sad since it was such a small room for Four People.... More

This was my second visit to this property (see review from Aug 2014) and it was just as nice now as it was then. Close to the beach, Lincoln Road and even Espinola Way. If you are not a beach person, lounging around the pool would work.

It wasn't hard to locate the hotel, South Seas stand out among other hotels around it. Four of us shared a spacious family room overlooking South Beach, which was a bonus. Breakfast was sufficient and we could have it by the pool too, with towering palm trees all around.

I hate to write bad reviews, but this hotel was awful and I hope others heed our advice. Do NOT book here. The online photos make the place look acceptable, and really that is all we expected for our South Beach experience. I have been to South Beach before and enjoyed my stay, but the hotel I previously stayed in... More

Dear Guest, Please accept my deep apologies for your unhappy experience at the South Seas.

Nice hotel just a short walk from Miami Beach. The room was clean and tidy with a king size bed and a nice bathroom. Under average breakfast, but nearly located to many restaurants. Friendly and helpful staff.

We were coming from the Keys so we followed the directions on the hotel website. They are not accurate. We went the 1.3 miles on Collins Ave when it should have been about a block. Check in was fine. We asked about getting beach chairs. We were told there was a charge but the website says otherwise. Room was clean.... More

I've never been one of those people who writes a review of any vacation I ever been too. This experience made me feel obligated to write a review on this hotel 1. When I walk up to the vallet/bell hop station outside and asked for help with my bags I was completely ignored even though there was two employees outside.... More
