“Seacomber - Miami Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

This is a great hotel. The bellmen, Dorgis Delgado is very sincere, courteous and professional, as well as his colleague Erick. Great hotel & great people who work there, especially Dorgis & Erick. We obtained this hotel through SWA Vacations. I'm glad that we went here and we will be returning as soon as possible.

I had so much fun in Miami Beach! The stay at the Surfcomber was excellent! The room was unique and the service was the best; everyone was friendly. This hotel added greatly to my overall experience in Miami.

You know that friend who has the uncanny knack of throwing a party together effortlessly with the perfect balance of music, libations coupled with an interesting mix of people? That is what Surfcomber is like. Laid-back cool folks who invite you to a great party and let you wander in and out at your leisure. Comfy room that is furnished with what you need (including a yoga mat if you need a little up dog) and edits out the extraneous to ensure "room harmony". The grounds are awesome--long stretch of pool flanked by numerous lounge chairs and 2-story cabanas dressed in gauzy curtains on either side of the pool! Life-size farm animals humorously graze about the grounds. Beach bar beyond the pool, bikes available to tour about the Art-Deco District, Beach and ocean out backyard of property. FAB LOCATION. FAB HOSTS. STAY HERE!

10 of us stayed at this South Beach Hotel for a Bachelorette Party in May. They have done a decent job upgrading an older hotel and service was great, but for the amount we paid to stay there, it was disapointing to be woken up early each morning to hear people talking in the hallway, kids running and laughing, just a lot of noise through the thin walls. The service at the pool was average at best and the food was not great but also not terrible. If you are looking for the whole South Beach pool scene, there are better places to find it. All that being said, the location was great, it has beach access and the bar inside was very nice. Like i said, nothing special, but if you find a great deal or something, go for it.

The Surcomber in Miami is a fantastic little hotel located right in the heart of South Beach. It's staff are friendly and welcoming and you are always guaranteed a smiley face when you go to enter the hotel. The check in a d out experience is good, with no fuss or nonsense, just good efficient service. The rooms are well set out a d very comfortable. The pool area is excellent and not overcrowded as the hotel is one of the smaller hotels in the area.

Overall this was a great experience and we will certainly be visiting the Surfcomber again in the future.

Room Tip: Make sure that you ask for a room with a court yard view

Loved this place. The staff really goes above and beyond to make you feel at home. My dog was treated like royalty they brought him a bed and he was greeted by name everywhere he went. My children were given cute goodie bags upon arrival and when my son tripped they tended to him and treated his "wounds". The location is perfect, you walk right out onto the strip. Will definitely recommend this place!

Loved everything about this hotel.
Location - on the beach with gate to boardwalk, short walk to Lincoln Road mall, short walk to Ocean Drive. Easy access from airport bus.
Building - 1940's classic design, only 4 stories high so much more attractive than some of its neighbours. Funky interior design - random cows and sheep that are re-located throughout hotel and grounds, great fun. Free coffee available in reception every morning 6-10 am.
Pool - great size pool, although cold throughout our stay, with loads of sunbeds and the pool guys (Chris and Bryan) did a great job setting up your beds where you wanted them complete with covers and towels. They ensured that unused beds had towels removed to make plenty of availability and we never had a problem getting a bed. They also bring around iced water for guests and there is a supply of sun cream. The best bit is the free wine tasting around the pool 5-6pm every day. Only down side was loud music from hotel next door - especially loud over the weekend.
Room - received a free upgrade as members of Kimpton Loyalty. Expected room to be small but it was quite adeqaute, well- furnished and very comfortable bed. Upgrade provided a view onto courtyard rather than a brick wall. Bathroom was small but very modern, clean and a strong shower. We had requested a coffee maker and that was in the room when we arrived.
Breakfast - the only disappointment really. Choice of toast or croissant with coffee and orange juice although you could pay for other items. Could do better than this as it lets down the standard of the hotel.
All staff extremely pleasant and helpful at all times. Would stay here again and again.

Room Tip: Join Kimpton Loyalty and you get an upgrade. The rooms looked the same but the outlook is better.
