I stay at the South Seas Hotel EVERY time I come to South Beach. In the last 6-8 years I've made an average of 4 trips per year to South Beach and enjoy every minute of my stay.
Miguel, Anna, Laura, Gustavo and Daniel are true professionals and they care about their guests well being. It is a very busy hotel, due to its popularity, but there is never a time that they don't stop and have the courtesy to acknowledge my visit and chit chat the best they can. I enjoy the accomodations immensely. While they are seemingly simple, they are tasteful, clean and the staff is responsive in the event that something is out of order (which is rare). The price is always competitive with their peers.
Valet parking is very convenient, though a little pricey. This past time I went (2 weeks ago), I had an issue with requesting my car and waiting a half hour for it. I was anything but pleased about that, but that's not the hotel's fault, that the vendor does the valet parking.
In terms of the restaurant (Pilikia), it's one of our favorites.... The blackened mahi-mahi CANNOT BE BEAT anywhere... Mark, the chef, is flawless when it comes to the mahi-mahi. It's pricey, but worth it, in my book.
During the many years I've visited, I've come down with friends, family and solo and the accomodations have always been well-suited for us.
South Seas is my home away from home and when I arrive there, I know I can just relax and enjoy South Beach.
