I enjoyed my stay immensely. The staff is welcoming and helpful. The room was clean, The breakfast was enjoyable. Best of all, I was on the beach and close enough to any activity I wanted to attend. Thanks

Great staff, location and a nice continental breakfast. Lovely view over the sea from the roof terrace, would definitely stay here again.Staff were friendly and helpful.
Would be great if there was a normal amount of milk in the rooms though, not everyone drinks black coffee or with a tablespoon of milk...

Dear Letitia,

We're glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We do offer cream and milk for coffee during our breakfast every morning and some guests do opt to take some to their rooms. We unfortunately cannot place either in the rooms due to local health regulations.
Thank you for choosing Edgewater, we look forward to your next stay with us!

Based on the previous reviews on this site our expectations were quite high. Unfortunately, things didn't go quite as planned.

Our first room (a one bedroom suite) was otherwise ok but VERY dark. 3 of the 4 windows were covered with a blind that couldn't be opened so the only actual window was in the kitchen / lounge area facing the street. The bedroom had only 3 dim lamps and there were no ceiling lights. We felt the first night in this room was ok as we were very tired after a long flight.

The next morning we asked if we could have another room with more natural light and luckily, were moved to a much better one bedroom suite. Both rooms had windows facing the sea and Ocean Drive. The views were absolutely beautiful and surprisingly, not too much noise from the street either.

The strange thing about this room (like the first one) was that it didn't have ceiling lights either, only a couple of spotlights in front of the bathroom. The living room and the bedroom had only a couple of table lamps and a floor lamp, all quite dim. That means in the evening there wasn't enough light to read anywhere in the room. Otherwise the room was fine and very spacious.

The weirdest thing happened a couple of days before we checked out. We had done some grocery shopping at Wholefoods and left the stuff that didn't need fridge (nuts, cookies etc) in the bag on the kitchen floor. The next day the bag was nowhere to be found. We went down to reception to ask if they could check with the housekeeping what was going on. Someone from the housekeeping came down to discuss this, unfortunately she didn't speak English and we don't speak Spanish. We were told that in a hotel if you leave a bag on the floor it usually means it's garbage and should be thrown away. We've travelled in dozens of countries and stayed in a lot of hotels and this was the first time I heard I shouldn't leave things on the floor unless I want them to be thrown away. We were told that the housekeeping had probably thrown our bag away accidentally and that they had checked the CCTV recording but couldn't find out what exactly had happened. We still find it very hard to believe that this is what happened because the grocery bag was quite full of unopened packages and quite heavy too. How could they not notice it wasn't garbage?

Also, previous travellers have commented how friendly the staff is. The way this problem was handled sure wasn't very friendly. Evasive is the word I would use. It was more like “we don't know what happened and that's why we can't do anything about it”. When checking out, I asked about the matter again and after telling us they didn't have any new information he told us he can deduct the $18 resort fee for 4 nights (we stayed 7 nights) from our hotel bill.

So, unfortunately I will not be booking Edgewater South Beach again or recommending it to my friends. That's a shame because the location is just brilliant.

Dear Alma,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us such detailed feedback, we appreciate it very much. We are aware our lighting is a bit too cozy for most of our guests and are looking into improvements this year.
Please accept our apologies for the mishap with your grocery bag, we most definitely do not discard bags left on the floor without making sure it contains refuse. Management is also informed by our team so that we may research and resolve to our guest's satisfaction prior to departure. This doesn't seem to have happened. I will be contacting you directly to discuss further.
We hope that you will give us a chance to change your mind about us during a future stay.

I had the best birthday and vacation getaway here. Besides the room (1bedrm oceanview) and property being gorgeous(open rooftop where they have free breakfast an happy hr) and right across the beach and right where all the fun Ocean Drive nightlife is happening is the one of a kind staff, Jonathan (my fave), Joseph and Raphael were excellent!!! The hotels restaurant was amazing as well, some of my hubby and I's faves were the banana pancakes, shrimp cocktail, skirt steak sandwich and their amazing lobster ravioli!
No need to even eat anywhere else really!
Attention to detail and service is 5 star here and I will be visiting again and again.

The location of hotel is perfect, very-very close to the ocean and gives a great opportunities for jogging in the Lummus Park. Breakfast was nice, fruits are tasty, "Happy hour" on the roof terrace was good. Cleaning of room on daily basis was provided. Staff was very hospitable, helpful and friendly. We recommend this hotel to everybody who wants to enjoy Miami.
