My wife and I stayed at South Beach on the 5th floor for five nights back in March, 2013. Based on that excellent experience, I booked most (6 units) of the 4th floor for my extended family as we were celebrating my parents' 50th wedding anniversary from Dec 24 - Jan 5.
The units are all well-appointed with everything you need to be self-sufficient in terms of cooking, sleeping, entertainment, and laundry. We found that all the units were maintained at the same high level. Staff are very cheeful and provide excellent customer service. All maintenance issues are dealt with promptly. Great location on Treasure Island, within 15 walking distance of Publix, 5 min to Waffle House and the best restaurant in the area, Middle Grounds.
The pool is heated and was comfortably warm even when the temperature dipped to 50F one day. As others have mentioned, it is heavily chlorinated so it would be nice if they could cut back on that or convert to salt water.
Do consider renting a cabanna on the beach as it makes a huge difference in blocking the wind which is especially important on cooler days. They rent them for $25/day but you can negotiate that down if you are staying multiple days and/or rent multiple cabannas.
Given that the weather did not always cooperate, we were very pleased that the South Beach condos provided all lots of space to visit indoors, along with big screen TVs. The balconies are nice and large as well - great places to catch the sun and visit while gazing out over the gulf. My wife and I have already booked for another week in Dec, 2014 which will be our third visit.
