The Surfcomber is really a cool place that exceeded my expectations. It has an excellent South Beach location and a neat ambiance. I live in Miami and just wanted a getaway weekend and this hotel exceeded my expectations.The staff is extremely friendly, excellent and make you feel at home. The staff at the pool were very attentive to my needs and excellent service from the bartenders. Looking forward to return stay at the Surfcomber.

I just left there today and I just wanted to say thank you to the amazing staff! Especially Andrew! He is so sweet and really took care of us. He always greeted us with a welcoming smile and by name an that is not always something you see nowadays in customer service. He really knew where to send us so we could really soak up the city of south beach. So looking forward to our next trip! And with that kind of service I will be back to the Surfcomber! Thank you Andrew :)

Another fantastic Hotel from Kimpton. Everyone helpful and friendly the moment we arrived. Very good postion right by the beach. The bedroom and bathroom were a bit small for three people but we only staying a couple of nights. The reception area is very cool place to spend some time.

My husband and I stayed for two nights at the Surfcomber in South Beach. We were pleasantly surprised by the hotel. The staff at the front desk was very helpful with check in and also with directions. Our room was small as expected from other reviews and just knowing it was an older hotel in a bigger city. However, it was very nicely decorated, clean, and the bathroom was very modern. Our view was of the building next door but not a big deal since we spent very little time in our room. The lobby is really cool with funky, modern decor. The wine hour each night was really nice, we enjoyed ours one night on the comfy sofas out in front of the hotel during a rain shower. The courtyard area that you walk through to the pool and beach is so beautifully landscaped, we were really impressed. The pool area is very clean and well landscaped. The beach is very close, out the back of the pool. We rented chairs and an umbrella, $15 each for the chairs, $12 for the umbrella. Good idea to reserve these the night before or get there early if you want front row on the beach. There are towels at the pool to take to the beach. There is a paved beach walk that runs along the back of the hotel all the way down through Lummus Park, a great place for a walk or run in the mornings. The hotel is walking distance to the Lincoln Rd mall area with shopping and restaurants. We did not rent a car and were happy we didn't, the price and hassle of parking made the few cabs we took well worth it. Every memeber of the staff, from management to the front desk, the maids and bellman were very friendly and helpful, far beyond anything we have experienced at a hotel before, you truly feel like a guest. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't stay anywhere else if we return to South Beach.

Prior to arriving in Miami. I contacted the concierge to ask about restaurant recommendations. Mr. Andrew Linton was extremely helpful and contacted Nobu for a reservation. They needed a credit card number and we were already on the plane, so he gave them his personal credit card number. When we arrived, we were excited by the gift of complimentary champagne and chocolates! After arriving home, I realized my camera was missing. I called the hotel and got Mr. Linton once again. He not only checked the room, but then searched the laundry room and found my camera. It was a great phone call. It was truly service above and beyond anything I ever would have expected.

We had a wonderful stay at the Surfcomber. Perfect location in Lincoln Rd. just a few steps away from the crowd of Ocean Dr.
The Hotel hall is really nice as the standard double bedroom. The bathroom was a bit too small though.
The swimming pool area on the back is great! just in front of the beach.. with free towels, bar service, music, and also free sun cream.
We reccomend it

I read all the reviews before we booked. Now that we are back, a few comments:

We never had a problem with the daily maid service. We would walk down the street for breakfast and by the time we came back, our room would be cleaned. The pool was always crowded, but not overly crowded. The beach access was amazing! Just walk out the back of the grounds and you are there. The Surfcomber has an outside shower to rinse right before the pool. The 5-6pm wine hour was a plus. Great way to gather around the pool after spending the day at the beach.

The location is amazing! We have been coming to Miami for many years and previously staying at the Loews because of the close proximity to Lincoln and Espanola Way. There is also a Walgreens just don the street from the Surfcomber, which was great for last minute items, adult beverages, and snacks. We will definitely be back!

We did travel as a family, and there were other families there but not overcome with children like the Loews. Our son was the only child at the pool many times and it was nice not having a ton of kids on the property. Lucia did make my son feel welcome upon arrival and he also received cookies courteousity of Michelle! Thanks for making him feel special!!

The room did not feel small to us...we had the double, double. No ocean view but we did not spend much time in the room. No car or taxi needed, except to get to/from the airport, which was a $33 taxi ride, each way.

We did not have an opportunity to eat at the restaurant as we had read about so many other great restaurants within walking distance that were amazing. I would strongly recommend the Surfcomber as it fits into the budget nicely, great service, nice wine hour and fantastic location!

Room Tip: We were on the 2nd floor, near the rear/pool. The beds were really comfortable. We brought a soft...
