This was our first visit to Miami and wanted to stay somewhere memorable. Having spent time looking for the perfect place to stay we were disappointed at this place from the moment we arrived. Arriving at the hotel we parked in the limited spaces outside the front and on entering we were stopped rudely by a guy at the door... More

The hotel is in the perfect location - right on the beach, close to Ocean Drive and Lincoln Road as well as Espanola Way. The hotel itself it quite old, but most of the small boutique art deco hotels in Miami Beach are. The room was a bit dated but very clean. The pool area is absolutely beautiful. My two... More

Travelling around USA with my partner. Stayed at the South Seas Hotel for 2 nights. Nice hotel with free Wifi is always good. First of all location is fantastic.

Stayed here for 2 nights in July 2015. The rooms are a little small, but have everything in them, that you would expect. The dressing gowns are a nice touch. We were always able to get a sun lounger near to the lovely pool and having a free water dispenser at the pool towel hut was perfect. The wifi worked... More

We stayed at the South Seas from Jul 27 to 30th. We settled in the assigned room, a small one in front of the lift, with view on the side building, under construction. I called to check if it was possible to get a better room and was told that the hotel was fully booked. We emptied our suitcase, went... More

South Seas is a little tired - the rooms are very very cramped and everything needs a bit of a lift. The bar and pool area lack the atmosphere and flair you expect on the beach in Miami. With that said, the location is absolutely brilliant and that's definitely what you're paying for. Everything is clean and the staff are... More

the rooms are very dated. The door to the bathroom barely clears the toilet. Mattress very hard. Our room overlooked the trash dumpster. Pool are ok, smaller pool when families are swimming. Hammock area was nice and relaxing. Breakfast area too small for the number of people eating.

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.
