“One of the Best Places to Stay in Miami Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

We've stayed at the South Seas a few times and each time is excellent!! It's location is perfect whether you want to spend a day on the beach, go to a performance at the Fillmore, or go shopping or dining on Lincoln Road or Espanola Way. They are all so close by! Even Ocean Drive is a reasonable walk away.
Most important is the friendly and welcoming staff. Ana and Laura at the front desk even recognized me from previous stays. That's such a wonderful personal touch that I appreciated. The breakfast is also a great perk. Having a relaxing breakfast poolside is a great way to start a vacation day. Rosario and Martha are so friendly and always have welcoming smiles for the guests.
If you're looking for a warm, friendly hotel that has an excellent location, the South Seas is it.

We just got back from a long weekend stay at the South Seas Hotel. What a wonderful experience! Friendly staff and a beautiful property. We had delicious meals and drinks at the Pilikia bar and restaurant, enjoyed spending time at the pool, and loved being able to walk right out onto the beach! It was also great to have breakfast included. I would definitely stay at the South Seas Hotel on any future trips to Miami!

Picked this hotel just from looking at hotels on Google. Was a great find for the price. Is not a fancy hotel but is right on the beach. Cozy pool and relaxing beach area behind pool with hammocks Great location. The hotel staff were great. Helpful and friendly. Included breakfast hotel very clean and welled run. Shout out to Laura at front desk. Just a sweetheart. Would go back again. If your looking not to break the bank in south beach. Great value. Only comment. Breakfast the same every morning. Would have loved to see them offer some different options every other day.

Room Tip: I stayed in the back of hotel but any would be fine. No one is staying in there room at southbeach

We´re always staying there when we´re in South Beach! You can´t find a better value hotel with own little beach with lovely hammocks and private direct beach and ocean access. But beware of Spring Break!! :-)

If you want a relaxing hotel ON the beach this is definitely the place to be! The Pilikia bar and restaurant is the best service and food around! Thanks Lara and Zuzana for another fun trip and great drinks. Jimmy....GREAT FOOD...again! YUM! Thank you Mabel for keeping our room clean and fresh. The other great thing about this hotel is that there doesn't seem to be a lot of turnover here. The bartenders, pool staff, security, chef/kitchen staff were all there last year. . That says a lot about this place!

This is our second time here and every time we talk about coming back to Miami, staying at this hotel wins the discussion EVERY time. The only 'slight' gripe I have is that it would be nice if the partial and oceanfront rooms had balconies. That's really the only reason we've considered staying somewhere else, but we always end up here in the end.

This hotel also offers an 'included' continental hot/cold breakfast too! From bacon & eggs to fresh fruit and yogurt, you can't get that anywhere else on the beach...that I've found anyway.

This hotel may be older than those bigger hotels, but it's clean, the staff is nice, and service is top notch. My husband and I first traveled to Miami Beach last year. Last year we decided on this to be "our" once a year trip for just the two of us. We just got back and the hotel's staff, cleanliness and service didn't disappoint.

You're also close to Lincoln Road Mall and Ocean Drive where The Clevelander and Mangos are fun places to go enjoy food, drinks and live entertainment. A CVS is also a couple blocks down if you need something for your trip. If you want really good pizza, stop at SPRIS on Lincoln Road Mall. www.lincolnroadmall.com/.

Room Tip: Oceanfront rm#537 doesn't have a large front window to display the ocean view. Still nice w/2 sm...

I recently had to go to Miami for business and decided to take my husband and extend our stay a little. We chose the South Seas because it was right on the beach and was the most affordable in the area. The hotel was clean, the pool, hammocks and beach were lovely! This is a great place to stay if you want to be close to everything but have a nice quiet home base. Ana was absolutely wonderful and assisted me in getting transportation to my meetings in Miami.
We will definitely be coming back!!

Room Tip: Go for the Ocean View King!

Dear Guest,

I’m so glad you enjoyed the one of the hammocks that are strung between palm trees near our sparkling swimming pool, with the beach just beyond our gate. Thank you for writing about your visit, and for acknowledging Ana’s exceptional helpfulness with local transportation. Your recommendation means a lot, and we all are grateful for it.

I've been staying at the South Seas Hotel many times since 2009. Why? There is so many positive aspects and reasons why I am a returning guest. Ana and Laura at the front desk do everything to make your stay the most pleasant one. The Pilikia bartenders (Zusana, Charlotte, Lara, Angela) and Jimmy from the kitchen have always taken awesome care of me and my mom. The hotel offers spacious and very clean rooms (thanks to Mabel who has been taken care of my room during my recent stays). Also, one cannot beat the walking distance to the beach and to all the amenities, e.g. Lincoln Road Mall. I do recommend booking directly with Ana by phone or email or on the Hotel's website. My mom and I will be back in July and we cannot wait to hop on that plane and coming back to the South Seas Hotel. Thanks again to the whole staff of the South Sea Hotel, who have become friends over the years.

Room Tip: Contact Ana or Laura at the front desk and she'll be happy to help you with your booking.
