“Great hotel right on the worlds best beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Wonderful, not too big hotel, most rooms with balconies (ours a least) facing the ocean. Good food, great drinks overlooking the beach, cool pool and jacuzzi - overlooking the ocean - and the best, cleanest, beautiful beach with white, white sand. Relaxing on the terrasse - overlooking the ocean - in cool lounge furniture ( I want a set like that at home) - Didn't try it, but you could get a massage - also overlooking the ocean :0)

We arrived at the resort late last Friday night. The staff was very friendly and took care of us quickly. Made to our room and the luage srrived shortly after we did. We were very hungry and disapointed to find out the only thing they had to offer on the menu was shrimp cocktail, turkey sand.(whitch was very dry) and keylime pie. So we ordered all ove the above.Over all the rest of the stay of 5 days was good. The bar service on the beach and by the pool was very poor. Ok the bed and the linens. were very nice.

Room Tip: ocean view

My five sisters and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Marriott South Beach! The little touches the hotel provides for their guests such as the fruit infused water upon entry did not go without notice. The pool area was very nice and so was the beach. We have absolutely no complaints. Every staff member we encountered whether they were directly servicing us or passing us in a common area said hello, had a smile and was overall very pleasant. To our bellman George, one of the managers Tracey, to Shanelle our waitress in the restaurant, John the catering manager and Piorette (spelling??) who made our omelets, we want to say thank you! They were all so very helpful and pleasant. The hotel is currently undergoing renovations in some of the rooms but you would never know as it was not a nuisance at all. I hope the hotel keeps up the great workl!! Should we ever visit South Beach again we will be sure to stay at the Marriott South Beach.

I surprised my wife with a long weekend in SoBe at the Marriott a few weeks ago. Knowing it was undergoing renovation, I was skeptical about a peaceful time there. WRONG! It was as if no construction was going on. It was very quiet and peaceful. Fantastic weekend!

The entire staff was remarkable in their courtesy and professional manner. From the car Valet to the Housekeeping staff, you would think you were in one of the finest hotels in the country.

At check-in I mentioned that it was my wife's birthday celebration. Without asking, we were upgraded to an ocean-front room. It gave us a great view of the beautiful SoBe ocean's clear, blue-green water and lovely beach. Lounges and umbrellas on the beach aren't cheap. But, they make the day.

All-in-all, it was a wonderful stay and we will go back again.

The only problem may be the steepness of the driveway for low cars. We purposely left our exotic car at home because of it. And, after seeing it in person, it may well be too steep for it.

Room Tip: Book the Ocean-view rooms. The view is worth it, Ocean-front are the best. Street-front ("Cit...

Marriott South Beach employees treated us like a King and Queen. The front desk
clerks were extra nice and friendly. Everyone always had a smile and didn't
hesitate to make sure we were ok or had any questions. There was always someone
at the door to open it when we entered or exit.

Every morning we went to the restaurant in the hotel to eat breakfast. It was absolutely a wonderful buffet. Having omelets and pancakes made to
your liking was one of our favorites.

We enjoyed walking around seeing the nightlife of Miami. We were in a perfect
spot with access to the beach, restaurants, shopping, people watching etc.

We can't thank you enough for making this one of our best vacations yet.

From the moment we pulled in to the hotel front entrance, the valet was super polite. I was greeted by Michael Garcia. He was attentative to our needs and very welcoming to the property. Erenia introduced herself as the front desk manager. Once again, so polite and welcoming us top the property. The room was breathe taking!!!!! The view, over looking the ocean!!!!!!! The staff was very courteous! From the pool staff, to our poolside server. Anyone looking to get away, even for the day, the Marriot South Beach is the place to go.

Room Tip: Ask for the front ocean view!!!! Well worth the money!!!!!!
