Hotel's Favorite
Quite honestly I dont know why we have never stayed at The Setai before after experiencing most hotels in South Beach over the years. It was sensational.... the staff at check-in made us feel really welcome and special. Our room was so spacious and all the welcome touches stunning. There is a lot of choice in Miami / South Beach these days but The Setai feels and operates more like a private club and community for its guests. It was faultless - the Beach Club, Bar, Restaurants made more enjoyable by great staff throughout. Cannot speak highly enough about the beach crew who do everything to look after you at the beach. One of the best negroni's I have had in the US at the bar and the breakfast really wow. Breakfast os hard to get right in any hotel and The Setai is incredible. Without question our best stay in a Miami hotel ever.... we should have stayed the entire week but business demands meant we had to change hotels... ( big mistake ).... Thank you to every single member of the team at The Setai... utterly special.

The beach staff at the setai are extremely helpful and they have very vibrant personalities which make staying here very enjoyable. There is excellent hospitality even on very busy days and there is a great variety of drinks to choose from. In particular the servers kadeem,max,mani and david take good care of their guests and the concierge staff work tirelessly setting up beds for everyone. all in all a definite 5-star experience

The Setai Miami Beach is nothing short of fabulous. The room, the service, the housekeeping, the in-room dining, everything was perfect. Having beach chairs available for you during your stay is huge. Not having to pack a beach bag and towels because they have those readily available for guests is a huge perk as well. Love that this hotel isn’t huge like others. The Sunday brunch selection is superb and entertainment makes it a fun vibe without being clubby. Beautiful hotel, stunning views and a true 5 star experience!!

I had a great time at the Setai! Top notch service, especially at the front desk with Towania. The drinks at Ocean Grill were spectacular, I would highly recommend the coconut drink. The ambiance and the overall environment is not easy to forget and I will definitely come back again.

We visit Miami annually to attend Music Week. In the past, we stayed at great hotels such as Fontainebleau, W Southbeach, 1Hotel and even Faena. Then we DISCOVERED Setai, where we have stayed now for 2 years in a row. It is like a second home. Staff are the BEST, food is awesome, accommodations and service are second to none. Lia in Concierge got us a reservation in Carbone (a miracle with 24 hours' notice since the place has months-long waiting list). Also, Pablo in front remembered us from FY 2023. When I get together enough money, I will buy a condo there - I am that satisfied. if you are going to Miami and both can afford, but do not stay at Setai, you are making a mistake. Setai Miami is second to none

The Setai is my favorite hotel in Miami, I only stay and will stay here. The entire staff takes the best care of me, especially Deniz Kaynar who shows me exceptional kindness, attention to detail and intelligence and I think he has the potential for a lot. I appreciate everything you guys do for me here.
