Love this hotel so much! Great happening pool. Very comfortable lounge chairs. Lunch by the pool was amazing and the service was great! We loved our room. It was spacious and very pretty. I can't wait to go back

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at The Setai and had an AMAZING time! The service was phenomenal! When we arrived, we received a complimentary bottle of champagne and a slice of cake on a plate that read "Happy Honeymoon". The vibe in the room was very relaxing. The décor in the hotel was very beautiful. On the beach... More

The photos are misleading. The swimming pool is small and the beach like a ST TROPEZ one at its worst. Food is average. Service is slow : 45 mn to get a room service at 1 am. It is like a Aman with cheap materials and American service ... It looks Asian , but does not taste Asian. I was... More

That is the kind of hotel I like: calm, peaceful, with educated and friendly staff (and guests), comfortable and on a good location. It seems a description of a place absolutely every one likes but in Miami many people prefer the trendy and fashion places to see and to be seen. This is not one of those. The room is... More

We are a family of 5 and visited the Setai for the 6th time. So we are huge fans of this hotel. The enthusiasm unfortunately has changed. We noticed some changes already at breakfast. Breakfast offers much less choice than usual. At least 1/3 less while the rate was till the same. Every morning I pay $240 for 5 including... More

I decided to vacation in late winter leaving Washington DC in a snow storm, but days ahead of the Spring Break season. Looking through all of the reviews, I selected The Satai on Miami Beach - and it is exceptional. The higher price gives it an exclusivity and privacy that most desire. But the investment is spent on every detail... More

It's such a great place to stay. The view is gorgeous. The bedroom is excellent with a great bathroom. Pools are great to enjoy sunbathing. The gym is good, but, with that view outside showing the sun, sea and sand, it's better to exercise outside. Miami is fantastic, so does the Setai. Best place to stay in the best place... More

I stayed at the Setai for a weekend this past March. I was quite pleased with the hotel. After staying at the W across the street, I can say that my experience at Setai was of a more intimate quality. The hotel is centrally located and close to all of the attractions of South Beach. Cabs are plentiful. Regarding the... More
