The hotel charged several hundred dollars more than agreed when we booked and they could not explain why but only blamed Booking.com. So when we checked out, the hotel didn't accept the agreed room rate even though we showed the booking confirmation and even though everything else such as room service, breakfast etc. was paid. I have never had this...

I'm really disappointed with my stay here on Gale South Beach. Me and my wife are here right now on our honeymoon. We did stay at another hotel here on South Beach and there we were satisfied with everything. Me and my wife travel a lot and we always try to go to nice hotels. According to the stars given...

We, two adults and two children, had reserved 2 nights in a double room at Gale South Beach, for rounding off our three weeks of vacation in Florida. The hotel is perfectly placed in South Beach, and a short walk to almost everything. If you come by car, it’s not easy to park and unload your car. That’s easiest to...

Good hotel, but due to an error made by Booking.com, we had to pay USD 339 EXTRA even though it was obvious that Booking.com had made a mistake (a booking mistake) Gale South Beach didn't care but just charged USD 339 extra in addition to what we already had paid and blamed Booking.com. So be sure the hotel don't charge...

I cant' find anything to criticise on this hotel, except maybe the fact, that they do not offer any breakfast service. The rooms are great (modern, clean, homey, comfortable, greatly equiped), the rooftop pool is big enough and its water clean and clear. The service qualitiy is high, the staff's friendly and obliging. Gale SB is very good situated, restaurants,...
