“Pleasant Stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

Overall i was very pleased with this property. The only gripes I have is with maintenance. Toilet needed to be repaired as it ran all night making loud noise. The shower valve was impossible to close so the shower made noise running as well. The breakfast provided was sparse at best. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean. the location is the draw!! Nice pool areas as well. Good value for the money

My daugther and I stayed at the South Seas for eigth nights in the beggining of the month. My family has stayed there five times already, because we like the Hotel very much. We always recommend it for our friends here in Brasil. All the staff is very friendly and helpfull. The location is excellent, perfect for people like us, who like to enjoy the sun, the pool and the beach, and at the same time stay near the shoppings and restaurants on Lincon Road and Ocean Drive. And there is a bus stop practically in front of the Hotel, so we can get the bus to Aventura Mall, Ball Haurbor Mall, Downtown Miami, Bayside and even the Aeroport. The breakfast is very good and the rooms are comfortable and clean. Next time we are going to Miami we sure intend to stay at South Seas again.

A friend and I stayed at the South Seas Hotel in Miami for a few nights. After the first night, we noticed a few bites on our feet. The second day, we searched the beds looking for the cause; we found several ants, larger than usual, in-between the box spring and the mattress as well as underneath the fitted sheet. We immediately contacted the staff, whose only response was “What do you want me to do about it?” Upon finally getting a supervisor to accompany us to the room, his response was to laugh at us and simply say, “Those aren’t bed bugs.” The staff was hesitant to give us another room and acted like it was an inconvenience to clean our room. I would NOT recommend this hotel to anyone. For a few dollars more, you can get better service at a comparable hotel two doors down.

We stayed here June 14-21. This was our third visit and we will definitely come back again. We're from the Uk and were checked in within minutes of arriving at reception- something you really appreciate after a 9 hour flight. Our main draw to the hotel is not only it's location, you're literally on the beach, but also the friendly and efficient service we received from everyone. Breakfast was a relaxed affair, self service, but everything replenished speedily when required. The rooms were spotlessly cleaned every day, and nothing seemed too much trouble for anyone. It's so nice to be able to stay somewhere that's both relaxed and has that friendly feel, something we feel is lacking in the larger corporate hotel chains. Keep doing what you're doing south seas. See you in October.

Room Tip: We've stayed in various rooms during our 3 visits- ground floor, upper floor facing the pool, si...

Have stayed here numerous times. Everyone here is professional and friendly. The rooms are basic, nothing fancy but everything works and the rooms are spotless. They have an awesome
expanded continental breakfast in the morning that can't be beat. The pool is large and you are right there on the beach. You can walk everywhere within minutes. I recommend this hotel without reservation.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the South Seas in February 2014 during a whirlwind trip to FL. Our room was large, clean and very comfortable. The front desk staff was professional, greeted us immediately and directed us to some nice places to go later in the evening. The poolside area is lovely with a large pool, lots of seating and palm trees swaying in the breeze. Location is very close to the nightlife of Miami but not so close that it's loud. I would definitely return. And the complimentary breakfast was nice, too.

May was my second visit in 2014. (I go about five times a year.)

Valet keeps getting better which is a welcome change.

Front desk crew is always awesome. Anna and Laura should be called the dynamic duo. Adore them.

A little mix up with the room but it was rectified. Love love love the room I had. Best one ever!

Re: pilikia. I wished they served healthier options. I'd eat there more. Over the years each time I went I'd gain weight! Food is delish, but oh so fattening.

Antonio at the pool was unbelievably attentive and helpful to meoso that I could work, poolside. Many many thanks to him for his kindness..

Headed back to south seas next week! Go Heat!!!
