“It was amazing!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

I've been to South Beach 2x before I stayed at the Savoy which was also great (since its one of the few hotels that are right on the beach) the second time I stayed with family. This was a last minute trip for 3 days and I have to day the Dream was a dream. I was supposed to have a male friend roommate and was freaking out over the rooms. Girls and guys if youre going with a close friend of the opposite sex DO NOT FREAK OUT over the room/bathroom situation. Even if youre not that close there is a door that serates the shower and toilet/sink from the actual bedroom. I stayed in their standard room (and last minute ended up alone either way) and I was very happy with the room. Girls/guys if you need a room with major lighting for hair or make up then maybe this is not the hotel for you. I do have to say the lighting is very dim so my make up was very basic. This room was one of the sexiets hotel rooms I have every stayed in some may call it corny but I loved it. The pool area was ok only stopped by for a few minutes on my last day. The furniture does need to be renovated the furnitutre was white/wicker and it was dirty. The mattresses on the lounge chairs were not cleaned....but everything else was amazing. It was a block away from the beach. It was within walking distance from all the shops (Sephora, Victorias Secret) it was also not very far from Wet Willies or Johnny Rockets ( a must for me In SoBe idk why but the shakes tastes better there)

I loved the location and if i go back to SoBe will definitely stay here...the rooms were cleaned periodically and everything was great. Im not much of a partyer so I cant speak in terms of nightlife I love visiting Hispaniola Way and that also was not very far from the hotel. At least not for me its so warm and walking doesnt seem like a pain when your on vacation especially in SoBe. Do visit Puerto Sagua its your regular no frill restaurant that had fried plantains (maduros) the size of my hand. I shared the paella with my sis and it was delish..not very expensive either.

I didnt try the spa or room service or rooftop lounge so I cant speak for that part of the hotel..but everything else was amazing. Book it and go.

Room Tip: Sorry not picky....who spends all their time in a room in SoBe????

My Wife picked this spot for our March trip this year and she didn’t disappoint. The hotel is smaller than I am used to but has a trendy boutique feel throughout and is in a great location. You are right in the middle of South Beach, walking distance to all the great clubs, restaurants and the beach. The hotel rooms are a little small but just cozy enough for what we needed. The roof top pool really is lovely. The staff was great. Everyone was very friendly. Wendy the concierge was really helpful with spot-on recommendations and went out of her way to make us feel like VIPs. Overall the trip was great. It was really the perfect South Beach get-away. We are planning to return for a few days again this winter.

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!
