Ok, Yes, There are plenty of Hotels with pools with Ocean views and Boutique Hotels at South Beach, Miami with great ambiance, and such... but, I find most of them lack the 'good' food or are too (ahem) snobby or seem 'private', like you have to be one of the 'cool' kids to feel cool in them. So, here's the skinny folks: The Z has always hired and trained a wonderful staff, which gives off the warm and vacationeeee atmosphere first of all. They are noted for having the best notable James Beard award winning chefs preparing your foods, and it is in a great location on South Beach. What I liked also was the unusual sky light in the lobby that is actually the bottom of the pool which is on the top floor. You can watch people swimming while standing in the lobby! Holy cow! When you go up the elevator to the small but relaxing pool area it is surrounded in the best Travertine flooring and fountains that scream...PEACE and style! give this place a visit for sure when walking South Beach!
