“Excellent customer service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

We arrived late after traveling all day and were greeted by the friendly front desk. She provided us with a wonderful room and gave us a recommendation for dinner within walking distance. The only complaint we had was the size of the bathroom and speed of the elevator. The bathroom was quite small and the elevator moved very slowly creating a wait. The room was clean and the outdoor amenities were well kept. The location is great because you can walk to almost any activity you wish to do. Overall it was a wonderful stay.

We stayed at the Surfcomber during July 2014. Fantastic location. Fantastic staff. We really enjoyed the wine tasting in the afternoons. If ever I have the opportunity to visit Miami in future I will look no further.

Shrothman,

Thank you for the return visit! One of the things I love most about South Beach is the history We would love to see some before and after pics of your visit from 1969 compared to today! We really appreciate your business and hope we see you soon!

I had the pleasure of staying at the Surfcomber in mid July 2014 on my way to Curacao. The hotel is in a great location within walking distance to nightlife, food & the beach. South Beach is known as a party town so I was worried about whether it would be appropriate for for my 9 year old daughter but the Surfcomber staff made her feel right at home. The Surfcomber is very trendy, impeccably clean & the staff is friendly, professional & knowledgeable. Beginning with arrival the Bell staff greeted my family with umbrellas in the pouring rain & assured us that the rain would stop shortly. Jorges hipped us to all the great local spots. The Front Desk staff was very accommodating & the food at the Social Club was amazing. The hotel has a path directly to the beach, however it rained the entire day. BUT to my surprise our poolside cocktail waitress offered my family a complimentary poolside cabana to enjoy the WorldCup because management felt bad that it had been raining all day. Talk about customer service! The fun began with Wine hour & lunch @ the Social Club. The General Manager was very engaging during wine hour & even poured a few glasses. We also decided to visit a recommended spot for pizza & brought it back to the hotel. To my surprise again, Foxie offered my family plates, linen napkins & told us to sit & enjoy our pizza together while it was still hot. When we finally returned to our room that evening, to my 9 year old daughters surprise in our room was the best red velvet cupcakes that I've had & a chilled bottle of champagne. I've been a Kimpton InTouch member for years & I hold Kimpton in high regard. Although my stay was short, the Surfcomber exceeded my expectations. Upon departure the GM was in the lobby greeting and wishing guests farewell. What a nice touch! Needless to say... I'm getting back to the Surfcomber ASAP. Kimpton 4 LIFE!!!!

I stayed at the Surfcomber from July 18-23 with three of my friends for a bachelorette. We absolutely loved the hotel, it's location, and the customer service received. We are not from Miami, which is why we wanted to get to do as much as possible. Brad Low in concierge was extremely helpful and patient. He helped us plan all of our activities and gave us a lot of really good recommendations. He works hard and tries to ensure that you are having the best experience possible.

This was our second time visiting the hotel. We love the location, pool, beach and their staff is amazing. Kenneth at the front desk is wonderful, always a smile and a "can do" attitude. Enjoyed their new restaurant, and the cabanas by the pool are comfortable and beautiful. Highly recommend, and make sure you are a Kimpton Karma member, their properties are awesome.

We stayed at the Surfcomber in May 2013, for our first time in Miami Beach. It was quite difficult to choose a hotel but we relied on the other reviews and our previous Kimpton experiences, which were always a success. And we definitely do not regret our choice! The location is great, the staff is, as always, extremely helpful and friendly, the hotel stylish, the pool area great (we loved Remi the black sheep), and the access to the beach easy. As in all Kimpton hotels, the beds are so comfortable.... and the bigelow bath amenities are always a great plus!
We can't wait to be back!
