“comparatly much value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

Had a business stay there. Nice location, very friendly service, beautiful terrace, garden (big palms and bamboo, lawn, designed carribean style), pool and bar - did a walk along the boardwalk and found only one more hotel with a comparable flair and beauty! Beach directly cross the pedestrian Boardwalk (1 minute) with all service from hotel if requested. Kitchen is excellent, even Bio (!), wonderful breakfast with individually cooked eggs, waffles, etc. on terrace. Rooms modern and big, bathroom and toilet separate, beds exceptially comfortable. Unfortunately no window to be opened, no fresh air (upgrade to balcony suite $600 per night!), AC worked fine, ceiling fan additional. Seminar rooms in the basement well equipped, fine service, AC too cold and draughty, no fresh air possible. Luxury Spa and gym in the basement with direct access to pool and garden. Nice restaurant, but expensive.

Walk down to South Beach and Ocean Drive (center of nightlife) ca. 2 miles via Boardwalk along the beach or via Collin Ave (business, stores, hotels, etc.). Taxi ca. $9-10 alternatively. 30 minutes per taxi to the airport.

Summary: To be recommended for superior accomodation, family or business, 4 stars out of 5 !

Stayed February 2013, traveled on business

the hotel itself is lovely. the decor, rooms, beds and linens, lounge, veranda seating, beach, pool, etc. were all upscale and had a real eco kind of feel. however, i paid $2.70 for a lukewarm cup of decaf, and the room was unbearably noisy. there was a bang when the a/c kicked off and a loud drilling/ humming sound that was probably the elevator. when i made the reservation, i asked for a quiet room since my fiance has sensitive ears and reiterated te request when we arrived at the front desk. the construction next door -ahighrise going up - stopped for the day at 8:00 pm. we did eat at a cuban hole in the wall about two blocks away on collins which was fantastic! i would not stay here again.

Room Tip: did not use spa or $31.00 per person breakfast.

There were 39 of us for a company outing / meeting and we loved The Palms.

Service was fantastic from check in to the events team. They had total flexibility of where and when we did things and meals. During our stay we had everything we needed and felt as if we were the only ones at the resort.

The hotel itself has not lost the feel of a Floridian resort but has been completely upgraded. We loved the very tropical and intimate feel of the pool area and tiki bar. You are right on the beach and they have a hut out there as well. Running down the boardwalk was awesome.

Rooms were small side but neat and modern. The one issue and this is with most South Beach older hotels is there are no balconies, except on top floor.

Also the porches surrounding the back are so relaxing and great place for coffee or drink.

If you are hosting an event and want a low key, reasonable price resort, keep this place on your list.

The hotel and private beach were nice - good decor, turn down service, etc. Most staff were very attentive. Location was close enough to South Beach, but far enough away to avoid overly young and rowdy crowds. Maid service could be a little inconsistent, though. Spa service was good, not great.

The hotel service was excellent from housekeeping to the bar and everything in between, and frankly this is rare in Miami from my week here. The rooms are clean and they have an amazing 'eco' loo that I have never seen anywhere before. Only downside is that next door is currently a building site that means a quiet day by the pool or an outside lunch is out of the question Mon-Fri at least.

Room Tip: Beach facing is obv a plus but if you are on the very top floors the city view is also interesting a...

A friend recommend The Palms Hotel and Spa that lives in South Beach and I'm so glad she did. We had an extremely spacious ocean front room with spectacular views of the ocean. I especially oved the seperate his and her bathrooms. It made getting ready for the evening so easy. The staff was friendly and very attentive. The Sunday brunch was affordable and delicious. The outdoor set up reminded me of Robin Curose Island. The macaws were a hoot. The pool was warm enough to swim in in the middle of January. There were hammocks set up under palm trees to realx under. The servers by the pool made the best cocktails. The Aveda spa had a variety of services to choose from. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Go for an ocean front room! Well worth the view

We stayed for 4 nights as we were attending a wedding and had travelled from the UK. The wedding itself was outstanding - absolutely faultless service. I cannot praise them highly enough from the beauty salon to the food and ambience. Yes there is still construction going on right next door - but where isn't there in South Beach? Our room overlooked it (but there was little noise and none before 8am) and was very spacious and well appointed. Our only gripe is that breakfast is very expensive and there is nowhere easily to go outside the hotel for meals. You need to add another 25% to the price you see for tax and service. All in all a beautiful place which I would highly recommend.
