“good choice in miami beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Good value choice on miami beach with friendly staff, very good location, nice and relaxing pool area, a small and more personal choice than others, rooms are ok but nothing outstanding we just stayed one night so did not test breakfast or spa area.

The Surfcumber at South Beach is just a great place to stay.
The service and staff friendliness is a 10.
The premisses very nice, including a fantastic asian restaurant.
We will definately stay there again.

We stayed for 3 nights. Nothing to complain about the hotel, except the noisy Airco from the neighboring hotel. Very good located, nice and clean. Beautiful pool area and even wine tasting in the evening for free but when offered, then with different vineyards and not always the same...
Overall a very good!

Thank you for your staying with us. I'm happy you enjoyed wine hour! Like all Kimpton Hotels, we offer wine hour from 5-6pm each night for our guests. We have a different red and white wine from a Vineyard that has a love for the environment like us. Just another excuse to stay at a Kimpton at least once each month!

From the time I booked until we left the Kimpton Surfcomber was a class act! We asked for an early checkin and although they were not sure if it would be possible we were accommodated very early. The wine hour was very nice. Join the Kimpton group website and get free internet during your stay. Perfect wake up call at 4:00 am and taxi waiting for our ride to the airport. The next door hotel was a party scene all day and night, which was NOT what we wanted, so for our stay the Surfcomber was perfect calm and quiet. Front desk was very friendly. Beach employees were excellent. Continental Breakfast was just enough and included in our package.

The cleaning of the Room is poor or only focus on arranging the bed clothes.
I took twice the breakfast in the room and when I arrived late in the evening the tray with breakfast from morning was still there. No one picked it up.
Cleaning of bathroom is not great either. Carpet is not clean during your stay with the vacuum cleaner as I would expect for the type of rate I paid for.

My fiancee and I stayed here for four nights and could not have had a better experience. The staff were extremely accommodating, from the front desk, to the pool, to the housekeeping, everyone went above and beyond. The pool is wonderful, with music playing all day, but not too loud, and with the pool staff being very attentive, I never had to wait too long to get a chair, a drink or some food- plus the nightly wine hour is great. The beach was gorgeous, as you would expect in Miami Beach, and the staff there was also very attentive. Our room was not as small as I was expecting and very clean, and while the bathroom isn't big, I did not come to South Beach to spend too much time in the room or bathroom. We got some excellent restaurant recommendations from the front desk staff (ask Ryan and try Yardbird, it's amazing). And, the biggest thing was the price! All the other good south beach hotels (above 17th st) with a good pool and beach access were way more expensive, and combined with the service, location, and amenities, especially if you join their loyalty program, (which is free to join and you get free wifi), this is a hotel I will definitely stay at next time I am in Miami, and I could not recommend it more.

Room Tip: Ask for a courtyard view room.

Didn't know much about Miami and picked this hotel because of its charm, reviews and location in the better end of Collins Ave, i.e. north of 17th. It did not disappoint - the location was great, could walk to all the main restos/shops etc on Lincoln Rd, Espanola Way, and Ocean Dr. The decor was funky chic, the pool area very pleasant with palm trees etc, the clientele was eclectic (many european), it was clean and the staff were very pleasant. Most importantly there was direct access to the boardwalk and beach through a gate at the back. The only drawback, and it was rather major, is that it is situated beside the SLS hotel, which appears to be a hotel catering to the nouveau riche crowd. The SLS starts its headbanging techo poolside music at 10 or 11 in the morning and doesn't stop it until almost 11 at night. I would urge the Surfcomber to do something about this sooner rather than later as it was extremely annoying.

Room Tip: Don't chose a room near the SLS hotel. Also, Collins Ave can be noisy as well, re. Traffic.
