5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Recieved a bottle of red wine to celebrate our anniversary and a bag of sweets to welcome us as IHC members. THe ladies at the desk, Mickey the concierge and all the bellboys are sweet and helpful. we would definately go back...loved being across from the beach. The pool is small but we only spent one afternoon there.

My husband and I just returned from our first visit to Z Ocean. The location was perfect! One block to the beach. They are located on Ocean Drive so there were plenty of restaurants in walking distance. Also, Lincoln Road is only a few blocks away. We had our own private jacuzzi tub on our balcony facing Collins Avenue. We have no complaints about our stay. When we did have an issue it was solved right away, actually within minutes! We'd definitely love to go back when we can get away again.

After our third stay at the Z Ocean, it's time to write a review. If you want to rekindle your romance, the Z Ocean is the place to go. We have stayed in the same penthouse suite all three times, the second time by happenstance, the third time by request. We love the terrace and the Jacuzzi. The unobtrusive service is outstanding. Before we left, my wife asked if we should even bother to pack any clothes. She was nearly right, we only left the terrace or the beach twice. Mostly we wore our bathing suites. The spa service is excellent, two wonderful masseuses gave us a 90 minute couples massage on the terrace. I should also mention that the suite is spacious, the bed is very comfortable, there are two vanities in the bath, six shower heads in the spacious shower, and a wonderful kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, sink & dishes. The food at the Front Porch Cafe is good, particularly the 4 Cheese tortellini, broccoli lasagna, and the bacon cheeseburger. The Breezeway Bar is our favorite in South Beach!

Room Tip: The partial ocean view rooms have a better view.

Dear Konice,

Thank you for sharing such a descriptive, in depth review of the Z Ocean Hotel South Beach. This is great for all future guests to see and like the saying goes the third times a charm, glad we met your every need and desire... On South Beach you can either pack clothing to hit the clubs every nights or just a bathing suit and a toothbrush and we provide the rest. Next time before you arrive shoot me a message and wait till your wife sees what we set up for you both!!!! Seriously we appreciate you taking the time in doing this and sharing your experience with future guests .

We look forward to welcoming you back soon for another great stay!

Stay warm in Cleveland.

We will definitely recommend this hotel to our family and friends. It is beautifully designed, lots of special touchs in the room including comfortable bedding, fabulous bathroom, fluffy towels, nice dishes, glassware and a nespresso machine! We loved our spa suite with private hot tub. The location is perfect with every convenience within walking distance. What makes it the best are the people who work at Z Ocean. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. A special thank you to Maria who checked us in, and to Domingo and Mickey as well. We plan to return!

I don't think I have enough stars to give to this hotel. My boyfriend and I stayed in one of the rooftop penthouse suites for a romantic weekend and this hotel was by far the perfect choice.

Z Ocean focuses on the little things and to me, the littlest things are what make the biggest difference than other hotels. First and foremost, the staff is overly attentive and helpful, they genuinely want you to enjoy everything there is about your suite and accommodations.

I loved the "Do Not Disturb" button (which definitely did come very useful during my romantic "staycation") instead of a typical "Do Not Disturb" sign where you have to open the door. Just hit a button and that's it!

Did I forget to mention our private hot tub?! Sometimes, I don't always want to be at a public pool -- well, Z Ocean offers both options. Our room came with a private spiral staircase along with this very spacious jacuzzi! Very Romantic and convenient :)

The bed was ridiculously comfortable, we did not want to get out of it.

The shower was also something I have yet to experience before in any upscale hotel. There were jets bursting from all sides, needless to say it was the most relaxing shower we've taken in quite sometime...

Additionally, the food (especially the breakfast) from The Front Porch Cafe was stellar. Get the French Toast, to die for! The prices are reasonable and the menu options go on for days.

There's so much more to rave about but do yourself a favor and stay here, you will not regret it!

Dear Nicole,

Dear Susan,

Wow! I am thrilled to hear that you had an outstanding experience. Our level of service, amenity offerings and design are just a few of the things that we work very hard to make sure are on point and I am happy to hear you noticed all of them. We do like to consider ourselves an Oasis in the middle of everything South Beach has to offer.... I'm glad you liked our bedding, hot tub and our breakfast those three ingredients are the perfect receipt for a great weekend at the Z.....

On behalf of everyone at the Z Ocean Hotel South Beach, we thank you for your glowing review and welcome you back any time the sooner the better.

Live life to the fullest,

Frank Fuentes

We finished our vacation in an excelent, modern hotel, with a great location, close to the Art Deco buildings along the sea front. The staff was great, very friendly and helpful! The Hotel also had a parking, so leaving the car outside was not a problem. The room and the bathroom were very, very spacious and the shower was very relaxing. Altough the hotel was close to the restaurants and bars, the room was pretty much quiet.

Dear Riki,

So happy to hear of your positive experience at the Z Ocean Hotel South Beach. Sometimes I tell guests that if you had a dart board the Z Ocean Hotel is the bullseye when it comes to our location on South Beach. Walk out of either our Collins and Ocean Drive entrances and you're in the heart of everything. Glad you noticed our floor to ceiling windows but that you also noticed our triple pain glass that leaves you in peaceful tranquility when the sliding doors our shut...

Looking forward to seeing you back soon.

Safe travels

Absolutely loved this hotel-thanks to all the great staff, particularly Mickey and Brigitte who helped to make our stay so enjoyable. The only negative thing to say is that one week was not long enough. Very comfortable bed and great room/facilities- especially enjoyed our hot tub on the rather large balcony. Location is perfect, close to the fab beach and art deco area. The pool area with bar is lovely and the whole place has a chilled out feel, with enough of a buzz to keep everyone happy. Really enjoyed the food (amongst the best we had during our stay) especially whilst chilling in the Breezeway bar, though disappointed to miss the "pig and pinot" feast being laid on the day we left! Already planning our next trip:) Andy and Jacky x

Room Tip: Choose a room poolside to make the most of the sun.

Dear Andy and Jacky:

First of all thank you so much for the great review... it's comments like yours that make me so proud to be in this industry. So sorry you missed the "pig and pinot" event which was a huge success!! It was so good we are now going to do these types of events more frequent. Glad you enjoyed the services including pool and beach areas. I'll pass on your kind words to Mickey and Bridgette.

Hopefully we will see you two back again soon.

Take care
