“GREAT SERVICE, Excellent location, Fav rooms !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Great location, supper clean, comfy rooms, excellent Concierge Oscar :) who has a great attitude and knowledge of the city. We had dinner at Serafina's and it was excellent. The bathroom was on the smaller side, but who spends time in the bath.. when you have so much to do out the door. We had a drink in the downstair's bar. The upstairs one was full. Did go up there later in the night to see the view. It was amazing, sad I wasn't able to enjoy such a beautiful pool due to my short stay. The reason why I chose this hotel besides location, was the charm of the lighting, which gives the perfect ambient to the rooms. Thank you thank you thank you ! We love Dream South Beach Hotel and it's friendly staff ! We will be back !

great hotel spanning two buildings on collins. very modern interiora, rooms sleek with lots of uplighting if you like that sort of thing. the rooftop pool is fantastic, the service was excellent throughout the stay, and the hotel is good value given the quality. having stayed in several neighbouring properties this is the best of the bunch.

Going to try keep this sweet n short!

Pros:
•Location
•Service
•Decor
•Cleanliness
•Cool lounge chairs in front to people watch

Cons
•Room was very dark. Would have loved the option to make lights brighter when needed

•No iron in room...however, they delivered one very quickly

•They hold a WHOOPING $300 on your CC. A bit too high, I think.

•Hubby and I didnt get a chance to enjoy the pool, as there was a pool party 3-4 days out of the 5 days we were there. While we did get in free, as we were guests, there wasnt an ounce of space to enjoy. Would be nice if they have a designated area for guests during these parties. The pool played major factor in us choosing this hotel.

•No counter space at all in bathroom for toiletries. Our room had a pedestal sink. A little inconvenient that i had to dump my makeup and hair products in sink, in order to utilize the mirror.

But, overall we had a great stay, and the only reasons I would stay here again, would be the $300 CC hold, and not being able to enjoy pool area.

So the first thing I noticed about my room was the clear bathroom doors for the shower and toilet. Ha, very glad I didn't make this trip with my parents or something!

Anyway, the decor of the rooms is what you would expect with a trendy hotel on South Beach, there were several types of lighting to choose from in the room and the curtains did a great job of keeping the light out if you wanted.

The pool upstairs was also great, it was busy, but not hard to get a lounge chair to tan on, and the water was kept at a pretty good temperature. They also had free internet, which is pretty rare for hotels at this level I think!

I booked a last minute mother and daughter spa vacation. I booked a double handicapped accessible room and then booked massages with the spa. Rewards travel helped me choose this hotel and we were really excited about visiting south beach.

While we were driving around looking for the hotel my cell phone rang and it was the spa telling us they had over booked us and while we couldn't use the spa. they offered give us a massage in our room. I was upset because my whole point of this getaway was to have a spa vacation with my daughter. I was envisioning wearing fluffy robes and sipping expensive tea but alas it wasn't to be.

Then when we arrive at the hotel we were told that there was a music conference at the hotel and that I could only get the handicapped room for one night. They offered to move us to a regular king room. I asked to see the rooms and the double room was a perfect set up for a w-c user. It had a huge bathroom with a roll in shower. It was probably the best handicapped accessible room I had ever seen. The regular king room didn't work it was super small and I couldn't get to the bed or in the bathroom.

At this point I was about in tears to have traveled so far and to not get what I had booked. At this point the general manager found me and offered to comp our night and our dinner. This made up for the booking error and at this point I was happy. The hotel also offered to book us into another hotel.

I enjoyed my one night. the room was really cute and the restaurant and staff was outstanding. The rooftop bar had a big party along with a dj. I had fun checking it out.

The manager told me that if I came back she'd make sure I was treated like a queen and I'm tempted to take her up on it.

Room Tip: If you are a w-c user this hotel has excellent accommodations.

Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to write your review, and we can't wait to see you again very soon!

Stayed at the Dream for 6 days and 5 nights mid March.

The staff is very very attentive, helpful, and eager to assist you with anything. The staff deserves 5+ stars, their is nothing worse than staff that doesn't care, everyone who works at the Dream really gets this. I don't remember a staff that was so happy to be there for you.

The hotel is very well maintained, charming, if you like small and quaint this is a great hotel right in the heart of South Beach.

Roof top pool big plus, very chill, beach with private lounge chairs for hotel residents also a big plus. Sarifina's restaurant is part of the hotel too, so you hardly need to move far for great meals.

The hotel photos are beautiful, absolutely beautiful, the problems are that the rooms are tiny, everything at the Dream is small. Sidewalk walking traffic is so close to the hotels lounge chairs, if you want that you will like this, if not, oh well too bad, you will deal with it,

If you know what you are getting in advance, you will be very happy. I can go either way now since Ive been there.

I may go back maybe during off peak where I can upgrade the room, but with so many options in South Beach to choose from I enjoy seeing new resorts.

Overall I give everything 4 or 5 stars but the small rooms really make it hard for me to love this place.

I have been to many places in south beach

Room Tip: Ask for a larger room.
