“Awesome hotel and staff!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

Don't hesitate: this hotel is great! It's clean, it's near the beach, it's near the centre, it's staff is very friendly! It started in our case with Domingo...such a nice and helpfull man, getting our suitcases, bringing them to the room and explained some important things! He made us feel at home!
Leave your towels at home. You will not need them. Also on the beach towels will be provided.
There is an ATM machine in the lobby, there is a restaurant 'the front porch café' where breakfast is great. I can not find anything to complain about...
So book it!
I know we would, if we will go again to miami!
Absolutely! No doubt about it.

We stayed for 8 days just after Easter 2014. The hotel is close to beach - very handy indeed. Staff super friendly and helpful. We needed a doctor for our son, and the concierge sorted it out no time. Overall I highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Avoid rooms facing Collins Avenue. Our room was facing the pool and also the pool level. The kids lo...

We stayed at the Z Ocean after returning from a 4 night cruise. The hotel room was beautiful and loved the layout...perfect for me, my husband and two kids. This was the perfect ending to a vacation before we flew back home and a welcome retreat from the crowds on the cruise. The staff was fantastic! Extremely courteous and personable. Our room was located right outside the pool. We weren't expecting the pool bar to be open as it was a Tuesday afternoon but were quite happy it was. The super nice bartender (from London) was great!
We are IHG/Priority Club Platinum Members so we received a bottle of wine, two drink tickets for their bar and we both received a glass of champagne when we checked in. Classy touch.
Our room was not ready when we arrived so we walked around the area for about an hour. We spent some time at the beach which was a short walk away. As guests of the hotel, we received 2 complimentary chairs, towels and an umbrella.
I'm not sure if we'll ever be in Miami again but if we are...we are heading to Z Ocean!

We stayed for 3 nights at the end of a 4 week holiday in US and loved the place. We booked a Poolside room ( though wish we had booked a roof top terrace after arriving)

The rooms are spacious and very clean, the service is excellent. The breakfast choice is huge and very filling.

There is a short walk to the beach, we didn't use the beach club on our trip as we wanted to get out and see some of miami - plus it was so hot and didn't want to be fried!

The location of the Z Ocean Hotel is great. It is right on Collins Ave. and Ocean Drive. This is not a large property, which is one of the charms of it. The front desk staff were amazing and offered us drink tickets to use at the Breezeway Bar in the hotel. We decided to check out our suite and then grab some drinks at their bar before explore Ocean Drive.

We had requested a suite with a rooftop terrace in a part of the building where we could look down and do some people watching from our balcony. Our room was perfect. The bathroom was amazing with a shower with numerous jets that spray out all at once. There was a nice in-room bar, but make sure you check the prices. Only grab things from here if your really need them. There are stores all around here where you can grab the same things for a lot less. The bed was very comfortable. The balcony was perfect. We were able to watch the night life for a bit, but we could not hear noise from outside once our balcony doors were shut. Directly off the balcony was a set of spiral steps that lead up to our private rooftop terrace area with a hot tub and amazing night views.

The Breezeway Bar had an amazing bartender who was doing a little "cocktail" action with bottle flipping, etc.; was fast with drinks; and was super friendly. We were there for happy hour so drinks were very very reasonable. They also have appetizer specials from the Front Porch Cafe. We had some hot wings that were great and very inexpensive. I would definitely recommend stopping here for this special and enjoying some good deals on drinks and munchies.

The one and only reason that I could not use five stars (wish I could do 4-1/2) was solely based on the cost we paid for this hotel room. In all fairness, we only stayed one night on a weekend before a cruise, so the cost of all hotels, motels, and BB's all over South Beach was just crazy. I would stay again but only if I was able to get a great sale or stay during the week rather than a weekend night. I would say it would be worth 5++++ stars if it was even a little more reasonable in cost.

Spent 5 days in Miami at the end of a Florida Road Trip in Z Ocean. Hotel was ideally situated between Collins Avenue and Ocean Drive. The Staff in the Hotel were excellent and really made our stay excellent. Particular mention to the Bar Staff (Zach and James) who ran an excellent Bar and made everyone very welcome. The standard of housekeeping was also excellent. We stayed in a Lanai Suite with direct access to the Pool. Rooms were spacious and beds very comfortable. Excellent Value for money and would definitely recommend it especially if you are visiting for the first time as it is a great location with great bars and eating places right on the door step!

Me and my girlfriends stayed here for 2 nights before heading out on a Caribbean cruise.
Upon arrival we learned that we got upgraded to a penthouse suite complete with Jacuzzi tub on the roof. The rooms are wonderful and the beds are so soft and comfortable. The showers were also fantastic. The staff were friendly and always greeted us with a smile. Any concerns we had were taken care of immediately.
It is conveniently located within walking distance to shopping areas, and had no troubles getting around. The pool was a nice way to end the days with a refreshing dip. I loved this hotel and would recommend in a second to anyone visiting South Beach. Thanks so much!!
