“Remarkably Romantic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

My husband chose a truly stunning Penthouse Suite to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The hotel has about 20 of these very unique 2-story suites which feature a private spacious sundeck and hot tub. These rooms are just gorgeous with beautiful tile throughout, sophisticated designer furniture, extremely well-appointed bathrooms, and lovely romantic lighting. Kristin at the Front Desk was exceptionally welcoming and attentive. We had the signature "Green Eggs" at the hotel's Front Porch Cafe. They were the perfect choice to revive after a late night out on the town. The hotel's location is ideal. We walked everywhere, rented bikes, or roller bladed along South Beach's oceanfront promenade. This hotel has been affiliated with the Intercontinental Hotel Group as a Crowne Plaza while retaining the unique look and feel of a trendy South Beach hotel.

Dear TropicalManorDaytona,

Thank you so much for your feedback on your recent stay at the Z Ocean! We are so elated that you were able to celebrate your 25th anniversary with us here on South Beach... and join us for some fun in the sun! We are delighted that you found your Rooftop Terrace Suite (27 units) so welcoming and comfortable... those little private oasis are really unique for a hotel in the middle of everything. The comfort of the rooms are always important to us and your feedback is heart warming. Kristen and the rest of the front desk team send there hellos and the staff at the Front Porch Cafe are delighted to read that you enjoyed the "Green Eggs and Ham" special after a night out on the town... We are proud members of the IHG family of hotels for a few years now and thank them for bringing us guests like yourselves into our home. Please let's not wait another 25 years for another visit (Daytona is only three hours away!). We hope that you you will come back and visit us soon, when you are ready to book, please feel free to contact me directly!

All the best

the hotel designed in contemporary style (a lot of steel, glass in design)
but.. in my opinion that hotel is oriented for party lovers
huge stereo, 2 tv, subwoofer in room.. who does need it?
the pool is too small and view to very noisy street
bu may be for Miami beach it is ok, i compared with Europe

Dear Kiryl_12

Thank you so much for your review of the Z Ocean! We are so excited that you enjoyed your stay here with us. Our modern design here on the beach is a bit different from the older Art Deco buildings and fits in well. We don't say it like you do but yes are rooms are very well equipped for those who like technology two LCD TV's, Bose surround sound stereo and for those who have rooftop suites an extra outdoor speaker for connection to your own player. You mentioned noise our windows are actually triple pain glass so they are pretty good in keeping out the noise from the street but like you mentioned you are in the middle of it all!! We would love to have you back, please contact me directly when you are ready to book! We look forward to hearing from you soon.

All the best,

Stayed at the this beautiful hotel with my family over spring break and loved everything about it. We had a poolside suite and loved being able to walk out from our room and right into the pool. The location is within walking distance of anything and everything you could be looking for. I would highly recommend this hotel if your are visiting the South Beach area. It was worth the money to have the convenience of its location. Breakfast at the hotel restaurant was delicious but we found good breakfast walking down Ocean Drive for $5.00. We also found steak and lobster for $20 at the Carlyle Hotel which was cheap enough that I ordered two. We definately will stay here again during the summer when the water is not so cold.

We spent a week at the Z Ocean. Excellent service from start to finish. Very good location, one block behind Ocean Drive with lots of choices for restaurants and bars within a few minutes walk. There is a great restaurant quarter just across the road (about 1 block over). Excellent accomodation in our suite room- Spacious and well appointed with a small kitchen area which was handy. Pool side was quite quiet and relaxed with good pool side bar and service. Food good. Very nice bar area. Great value throughout and would stay again.

Room Tip: Go for a suite room with a balcony.

Dear Leigh,

Thank you so much for your review of the Z Ocean, we are elated that you were able to have an amazing experience at our hotel. Our location here on South Beach is perhaps the best walking distance to everything South Beach has to offer night life, dining and shopping. That little area a block over is Espanola Way this area over the past few years has become a local and tourist favorite for casual al fresco restaurants feature menus from different parts of the world as well as a small desert place that has the best ice cream on the beach. Please don't be a stranger! Please feel free to contact me directly when you are ready to book.

All the best,

We stayed here for two nights at the end of a longer trip to Miami and the Keys.

The hotel seems to be comprised of suites and the suite we stayed in was very nice, however it was a little bit tired and could probably do with renovating soon. Sleep quality was excellent though, and the TV had a good range of channels.

The service was very very good. All the staff were very pleasant, we were given a glass of champagne on check in, and on our first night invited to a guest cocktail hour with canapes and drinks.

On the downside wifi was extremely expensive and they seemed to have some kind of blocker in place to stop other wifi networks. It always surprises me that high end hotels charge so much for wifi when the cheaper end of the market usually provide it for free. For that reason, I have deducted a star.

However, if you are looking for a good quality hotel directly on South Beach, this one is definitely worth considering.

My husband and I stayed at the Z ocean hotel on the last leg of our honeymoon and couldn't have wished for a better end to our holiday.

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel special. The room was amazing with partial ocean views and a large balcony area. When we returned on the first evening we had a bottle of champagne in the room with a lovely card wishing us a great honeymoon which was a lovely personal touch. We had breakfast in the hotel which was really nice

The location is fantastic and we used the beds on the beach which also had a great service. we also used the hotel to help us with trip ideas and they went out of their way to help us it really was first class service

I definately recommend this hotel for people visiting south beach

Room Tip: Get the rooms with the spa included (floor 4)

Dear EnglishHolidays,

Congratulations to you and your new husband on this new adventure! I have shared your praises with of your stay with our staff and we all thank you for choosing the Z Ocean Hotel for such a special occasion.

I am so glad that you highlighted two of our great features from our Rooftop Terrace suites the view (ocean) and the balconies on all our suites. Our restaurant the Front Porch Cafe is truly excellent and perhaps the best breakfast on South Beach hands down.

We are truly blessed and honored once again that you choose us to celebrate your anniversary and we look forward to your anniversaries, bringing your children over to America and many many more years of being your second home here in Miami.

All the best

This April was my 40th birthday and I wanted to go to South Beach for the first time. What a great idea! The Z Ocean Hotel was perfect from the minute we arrived until our departure. The staff was excellent and the room was such a treat. It was always clean, very comfortable, and modern. My partner and I stayed in one of the rooftop penthouses. It was a corner room which had a great view of Collins Ave and a partial beach view. Every morning we had breakfast at the hotel restaurant on the front porch. The food was outstanding and we had the same server each day. She was such a delight. One afternoon, after a day at the beach, we hung out by the pool. We ordered some apps and drinks from the poolside server and again everything was outstanding. The beach is just a short walk across the street. It is a true perk to have complementary beachchairs, an umbrella, and towels for hotel guests. I would defeinetly stay at the Z Ocean Hotel again. Especially, for a special event or celebration.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room for more space on the private rooftop terrace.

Dear Vacalover_10,

Thanks so much for sharing. What a nice review! I am so happy to learn that we have become your new home on South Beach and a happy belated birthday to you. So happy to read that you both enjoyed your stay from arrival to departure, and including the wonderful breakfasts at the Front Porch Cafe (hope you tried the Green Eggs & Ham). We truly care about our staff and I am glad it shows and we want them to care for our guests in the same way its wonderful to read that we accomplished this.

Let's not wait for another birthday to come back to South Beach...
