“Cardozo is a great choice for South Beach...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Stayed here for one night on our way home from vacation. We wanted to be in the middle of the art deco district & the Cardozo was a great choice. The beach is directly in front across the road which is pretty close imho. Lots of restaurants to choose from in the vicinity as well as the hotels own restaurant. The building is very charming & the main entrance to the hotel is actually from the side street. The lobby area is tiny, but clean and sweet and yes, there was incense burning but it was not overwhelming nor intrusive. Staff was helpful & friendly. The room was very clean, shiny dark wood floors & walls, white bedspreads and sheets accented with leapord print pillows. We had a renovated bathroom with travertine counter, travertine tiled shower with glass surround and a cute vessel sink. Spotlessly clean.....

Would stay here again without hesitation to enjoy everything South Beach has to offer.

Room Tip: Had room #218

My wife and I ate ate the Cordozoa restaurant as we were walking by and thought it would be good as it was by Gloria Estafan. Drinks $25 each. Food was terrible. Service was horrible - we had to wave down the waitress every time. After asking for the bill, we had to ask 3 more times in order to actually get it. Please do not ever go!

We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights and this hotel really was first class.
Ideally located across from Miami beach, the best restaurants and shops in the city.
Owned by Gloria Estefan I always knew this was going to be a stunning hotel, a credit to ocean drive and I was right.
Spotless, gorgeous decor, spacious bedrooms, helpful and friendly staff, I can't wait to visit this hotel again in a few months time.

Room Tip: Room at front of hotel will get you a view of Miami beach, breathtaking views

We stayed here on a Tuesday night when we had tickets to Madonna. This hotel is fantastic. The only negative is the noise but if you are going to stay on ocean drive that is a given. The rooms are beautiful. Well appointed and spacious. The downstairs restaurant is great. The staff is helpful, friendly and welcoming.

This is a great little hotel. Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel if you want to sleep. If you're there for the party, who...

Not having stayed in South Beach we got a deal thru Travel Zoo at this hotel.
Arrived late @ night on Nov 7, 2012 and were received by a nice young lady. Very pleasent and able to help at that late hour. Stayed 3 days, great time
The room was spacious, clean and reasonably appointed .. bathroom a bit small but ok..
Location was great just across from the beach and beach promenade.
The restaurant located at the hotel was very good.. drinks at happy hour 2 for 1 .. although I thought were expensive $24.00 .. they were giant fish bowls ..
Food very good.
Able to walk to all the shopping areas on Collins Ave, Lincoln Ave .. great restaurants in the area

Room Tip: The hotel rooms on the back of the hotel are quieter

Recently stayed at the Cardozo for a "mini vacation". The location was "GREAT". It's perfectly located across the street from the beach. It's close to everything.I read that it was Gloria Estefan's hotel. There were a couple of her CD's in the room but overall the hotel had a sauna like feel.The bathroom was "tiny". The room needed to be dusted and the bathroom shower/tub needed a good scrub. About the staff, they were average. I could have self-checked myself in this place. We had to ask for extra towels. Once we requested the tables, a member of the staff full-filled our request.

Ladies get away!!!! Me and four other ladies spent 4 nights at the Cardozo and it was GREAT..The staff was very helpful and friendly. The food was good and reasonable.The drinks are 25.00 and huge. We arrived during happy hour and drinks were by one get one free.I could barely finish one.I saw a few children during my stay,this hotel is not kid friendly.However it is within walking distance to the beach.I would defiantly stay here again.

Room Tip: all the rooms are nice bathroom is small
