People watching is a great pastime in Miami's South Beach, which draws celebrities and beautiful people in skimpy swim attire to see and be seen. The wide and fine, white sand-covered beaches are popular spots for fashion photo shoots, so you're sure to see models. The area is known for its hip clubs and wild nightlife as well as numerous excellent restaurants.

We met for the first time on ocean drive in South Beach nearly a decade ago and coming back to celebrate our love really was just as great as the first time. Sun, Sea, Sand, Restaurants, Bars and great people watching, you have to go its the best!

From the morning sunrise to the night club lights this place is unbelievable. You stay on the beach the whole day and enjoy the warm water or walk the streets and dine at the restaurants. There is something for everyone here and so many things to do you will not be disappointed.

I really love the feel of this hotel. It's very "boutique like" and super chic. The location is convenient to everything. Santiago at the front desk was very helpful and informative. I highly recommend and am definitely coming back!

South Beach is a tourist attraction. It is a mix between expensive hotels and cheap restaurant. (Look cheap but pricey) Ocean drive is crowded with many cheap restaurants with waiters trying to get you in. The crowd may be part of the show... Go for the beach and the ocean, walk on Lincoln and Ocean Drive. Go to the Mondrian... More

The sand is average here and there were many weeds still floating on the shore, but overall, it is well kept and there was plenty of room to swim and lay out.
