“Great location & staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

My wife and I got away one night for our anniversary, and were generally pleased with our stay. The hotel location, rooftop pool / deck, staff service, and overall cleanliness and style of the property were excellent.

Our favorite part of the stay was hanging out the next day in the rooftop pool, listening to great music while we lounged on these sofa beds. Each had its own umbrella, and were very comfortable and made for a relaxing time. Staff even came by and offered cold towels to refresh us on the hot day.

The only negative was the size of the rooms were smaller than we were used to, but they made great use of the space. They had a really cool lighting system, which provided more than enough light after you got used to working the lighting console. While the hotel had a great location (can walk to Lincoln & Espanola Way), the traffic and street noise did wake me up a few times throughout the night.

Plus
- Location
- Roof pool & deck
- Service / staff
- Style and cleanliness of hotel
- Modern rooms with cool lighting

Negative
- Smaller rooms with really no view except street
- Street noise

Overall the Dream hotel is a nice play to stay as long as you don't mind not staying directly on beach with an ocean view

Staying here puts you right in the heart of South beach. Walking distance to the beach, wet willies and everything else. The boutique hotel was just inviting us to stay and relax. We were given champagne upon check in and the staff was great. The rooms are adult oriented and sexy. We decided to start our day off with lunch in there restaurant and I must say the food was delicious. We had the truffle pizza, grilled octopus and the Salmon tartare. We decided to explore the rest of the hotel and found the rooftop pool and bar. We had checked in only 2 hrs ago and already found our little oasis on the beach. It was a great beginning to our trip. If you want adult contemporary and first hand service, just stay here.

Room Tip: The jr suites seem to be the sexiest.

A+ Only con is the see through bathrooms lol make sure you stay with someone you are comfy using the bathroom in front of lol not really much privacy.

The Dream South Beach hotel was one of the most fitting I have stayed in over recent years. A perfect balance of cool sophistication and a couples retreat. The rooftop pool was to die for and the front desk staff (especially Hanack) simply couldn't do enough for us. The room rate was excellent and being tucked at the back of the Versace Mansion made the location perfect.

In order to provide a balanced review it wasn't all perfect, the wifi is slow at least with access blocked to youtube, the appstore and various other sites, the hotel refunded the $8.99 daily charge but it was inconvenient to say the least, furthermore what hotels still actually charge for this? Especially one so close to the high end?

Their was one member of the pool bar staff who clearly had better things to be doing than her job, her only defining characteristic was the typical eastern european attitude us folks from the UK have become more tolerable of due to experience rather than anything else nevertheless I only had to endure her once as the table staff more than made up for her lack of service mindedness.

The rooms are 'small' but perfectly formed with mood lighting and amenities beyond expectations.

Highly recommend this hotel for its location, its vibe and look, an overall amazing experience.

Like most places to stay in miami, it is very elegant but tiny. Location is great, your right on Collins avenue. For Miami, being in South beach, and being that close to Ocean drive is key to having fun.

Room Tip: Try and get a bigger room.

We were staying at the Dream for only two days in our anniversary trip and I can say it was great hotel.
The location is spectacular, as it is one block from the beach and Ocean Dr., right behind the Versace mansion, in the middle of south beach party.
Near to the hotel there are several clothing stores and bars. Also near you will find Lincoln Rd and Espanola Way.
The service was polite and helpful, the room decor is unique, we found it very nice. We love it. The lighting system in the room was not so complicated to use as reported in other reviews, it was easy to play.
We think this hotel is an great choice for couples, we find that because the room we chose.
The hotel has a rooftop pool with bar, the service there is also very nice, they have towels, suntan lotions and sunscreens complimentary for guests to use. The hotel also provides towels and chairs on the beach as a courtesy, ask at reception. The internet is very good and free in the whole hotel. Attached to the hotel is the restaurant Serafina, an Italian restaurant.
We find a unique experience to stay at the Dream, and we'll definitely go back because it is well worth it!
For those who rent a car at the airport, the hotel has parking Vallet, but we do not use, because two blocks up on Collins has a Public garage (Collins corner with 13th st) that charged $1,00 per hour or $20.00 per day.
I would like to express a special thanks, for all that was provided for us, to Mr. Walbridge, who was very helpful and attentive to our stay was perfect.
Our stay at Dream was a Dream.
