“excellent hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Very unique hotel, friendly staff, great location, nice rooms, the lightning of the rooms is very nice. I would suggest having a coffee machine in the room and more drawers. I would for sure stay there again.I would recommend this hotel highly

Stayed one night for a fun romantic getaway. The hotel is very modern in design and has a chic appearance. We enjoyed the beautiful rooftop pool and lounge during the afternoon sunshine. The rooms are very dark, romantic and comfy. I loved the lighting in our room and the shower was excellent! The location is close to many restaurants and bars, plus the beach is block away. The service is impeccable and the staff friendly and helpful. The bedding and pillows were comfortable and of high quality as was the toiletries in the bathroom. I would highly recommend this hotel for adults only.

After arriving in South Beach from New York we were blown away by South Beach..just what we needed after being in a big city.
We arrived at "Dream" and were greeted with enthusiasm and shown to our room straight away. The room was very well presented and up market. I had read all the reviews about the rooms and the lighting but it was ok for us..we opened the blinds in the the day. We didnt mind the clear glass on the shower/toilet - it made us laugh, after 23 years together, we have seen it all anyhow.
The hotel is in a good location and the rooftop pool has a great view to the ocean.
The only downside was the restaurant was really expensive considering you can get some cheap meals around the corner. It was empty most nights.
We really enjoyed our stay at Dream and would recommend it. We really loved South Beach and would like to visit again.

My boyfriend and I had 1 night in Miami and we chose to stay at Dreams on South Beach. The draw was that it had a nice roof, the rooms looked cool, and it was in the middle of everything.

We arrived around 6p and checked in easily. We stayed in room 156 which was decorated nicely! We requested a late check-out and were told 1p was the latest which was perfect for us.

The room was decorated nicely. It was sort of more of a 'set' than a 'room' though. There was nowhere to stash stuff, and my boyfriend and i felt super-awkward using the bathroom as the doors are clear... and we tend try to keep the mystery out of what happens in the bathroom... if you catch my drift. That mystery is now gone. If I were to come here with a bunch of girlfriends, it would have been tough.

The lighting is really cool... but if i stayed here for more than one night, i think it would get old. Its sort of an opium den in that its ALWAYS dark. The switches on the wall are tricky to use, and even with all the lights on... its not very bright. We ended up just opening the shade behind the bed to get some natural light in there.

We went to the rooftop bar for a drink or 2 before we went out to dinner. The elevators are HUGE... but slooowww. The bartender was adorable, bubbly, with tons of recomendations. She also makes great drinks. I'd recommend Lust... yum. We really enjoyed her.

We went to dinner and came back with leftovers hoping to put them in the mini fridge... but there was way too much other stuff that they charge you for in there. We tried to pull out what we could... but the fridge really was not made to hold even 1 leftover container.

We left our food next to the fridge, then went out to The Clevelander and Mangos which was less than 2 blocks away. A real quick walk to lots and lots of fun!

Continuing on location the Versace mansion is at the back of it, the beach is 1 block away, they have a partner company on the beach that will set you up with a nice chaise and a towel. The pool on the roof is gorgeous. It's a salt pool which is nice for the skin, and its an infinity pool too. Really nice to look at. We jumped in there the next morning and its so warm and nice that it was hard to get out! All of the staff was helpful and accomodating.

We packed up and started to take off when there was a knock on our door. A gentileman had clearly not gotten the memo on our late departure and he wanted to check on our plans for the day... we filled him in and he left us alone.

I'd stay here again for a night or two... preferably by myself... or with a VERY good friend...

Perfect location if you’re looking for a hotel that’s in the middle of it all but quiet and relaxing as well. Hotel décor was great, staff was friendly and informative when we had questions and the room was very accommodating. We had the jr. suite and that was just big enough for the two of us and our belongings. A little different having glass see through bathroom and shower doors but we got used to it and knew were the other should be in the room while the other was in the bathroom lol. Not a place for families unless the children are in separate rooms from the adults because of this. We have only one negative review point and that is the bed. The mattress was not so nice to our backs and hips and it was a queen so a little small for two adults. The pillows are down feather so no support there and hard to use. I hope the next time we go they have new mattresses and they are king beds. Otherwise they get an A rating overall. Will stay here next trip for sure!

Room Tip: Choose a Jr. suite if possible... it was the size of a normal hotel room big enough for two people s...

This was our very first time to South Beach and our first time to Dream Hotel. It turns out we picked a perfect hotel. The hotel is small but the location is great and the staff is all very attentive from check-n to check-out. This trip was for us to celebrate our anniversary and I wanted it to be special. Being new to the area I was worried that I might not pick the best places to go to. I went to the concierge for help finding the best restaurants and clubs to take my wife to. Wendy the concierge was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain many different options for us. We went to Juvia on her recommendation and it was exactly the type of experience I was looking for to surprise my wife with. She gave us all the insider tips on the best places to eat, best clubs and shopping. Thank you Wendy and all the staff for making our stay in Miami so memorable. We hope to be back again next year.

as soon as they opened my hotel room door i was like WOW, I feel like as if I was in a sexy dream. Like a princess. They had very nice accents to the room. everything was blue. The showers were very nice, very sexy..very much a couples hotel. I went there alone. The buttons they had for the lights were kind of confusing but make sure you look in the hotel manual book, everything you need to know is there.
House keeping was alwasy prompt and everytime i came back in the room, it was so spotless!!

i went to the rooftop pool, it was nice, the collors of the lights made it very romantic, but the only problem was that I thought the pool wasnt deep enough and it was too small. I was asked to get out of the pool during closing time, so I hung out on the nice beds that were provided alongside the pool.
Sundays theres a usual pool party, I couldnt attend because I was leaving that sunday
