“SEE THRU BATHROOM”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

DO NOT stay here if you value your privacy in the bathroom. The entire bathroom is enclosed in glass. This means that whomever you are sharing the room with will be watching you as you shower. Some of you may be thinking that sounds romantic, and it could be. However, watching someone use the toilet is neither romantic, erotic or comfortable for both parties. And, should your companion wake up during the night to use the bathroom, the light will wake you up as it comes pouring out of the glass wall right onto the bed which is next to the bathroom.

We had a night at this hotel to celebrate my birthday at the end of a two week holiday in Florida. From start to end, this hotel is excellent. From the valet parking to the beach staff, all staff are friendly, helpful and they all remember your name. You cannot beat the location, right on South Beach, and all rooms overlook the sea. Rooms are large and well equipped. The only thing I didn't like was the clear bathroom window, but they do supply courtesy blinds if you ask. The cocktails are amazing and the pool is lovely and quiet. I would not stay anywhere else in Miami!

Room Tip: All rooms overlook the ocean so all are good.

Fabiola and her other lady colleague (sorry forgot the name but she knows who she is) then Raj and Allen. You guys rock. Made our stay to be perfect. Loved everything about the hotel but above all else your amazing service and friendliness. Thank you to Raj and Allen for also organizing us a taxi to Sawgrass Mills. Was at a very affordable cost. We are definitely coming back there next year July. From Mr and Mrs Kula all the way from Cape Town.

I have nothing bad to say about this place. The location couldn't be better, the staff is extremely helpful and nice, the rooms are beautifully decorated, and the restaurant is ideal for a quick bite and some people-watching. We will definitely be back.

The Tides hotel is right infront of the beach and in the centre of the action. The staff is really very hospitable and will accommodate most requests with a smile snd pleasant attitude. All rooms face the ocean so you won't worry about that. Our room was big modern snd beautifully decorated. The mini bar is fully stocked and they also offer staff complementary beach loungers and an umbrella supplied by Boucher Brothers. The staff at front desk also have complementary admission tickets with priority access to the hottest clubs. The restaurant downstairs offers great food at reasonable prices and apparently it's under new management. They also offer the best happy hour on the street. Those giant mojitos cost $16 as opposed to other restaurants charging $25-$32. Fabiola at the reception of the hotel us amazing.

We stayed at the hotel in early June. The hotel and staff are very good, the rooms are generous with great views of the beach. My only gripe is a very loud bar next door with live drag acts parading up and down the sidewalk. Even on a high floor it was intrusive.
Miami wasn't what we hoped it to be, but the hotel itself is class, barring the noisy neighbour!

We spent the first 2 nights of our holiday here. Although we enjoyed our stay the hotel lacks atmosphere. The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms have a great view. Although we would stay here again I'm not sure it is worth the prices they charge. I only gave 4 stars for sleep quality due to the noise, but hey, your on Ocean Drive and the bed was divine.

Room Tip: Go for a higher room if possible
