The Sense Beach House is very comfy, cozy and clean! We celebrated our 25th anniversary starting in Miami before boarding a cruise; Evan and the staff made our stay spectacular!! Thanks so much for everything!!
We will definitely recommend to family and friends!!

My husband I and just returned form an impromptu getaway at Miami Beach yesterday. My husband booked this trip on impulse using a package deal and we were originally going to stay at a different hotel. When we arrived at the other place it was not what we were expecting so we left. At 1am, we were calling around to different local hotels to check pricing and availability. Michelle at the front desk of Sense answered the phone, gave us a rate that was reasonable and quickly checked us in.

First impression was CLEAN! This hotel does not have a speck of dirt or grime any where. It is obvious that the staff takes pride in keeping the hotel clean and tidy. The rooms are spacious and welcoming. We did not have an ocean view, but really it did not matter as the beach is less than a block away. The bar and restaurant are exceptional. Mojitos are great!

Every interaction with the staff was professional and courteous. From the front desk personal to housekeeping.

On the morning of our departure, my husband left his cellphone in the cab on the way to the air port. I called back to the Sense, Michelle answered and was prompt and attentive to my needing the cab company's number. She even went so far as to call them for me and call me back with an update. This was above and beyond.

I recommend the Sense to anyone coming to Miami.

Sense Beach House is the perfect hotel on South Beach. The atmosphere is calm and welcoming, rooms spacious, relaxing and very beautyful. The bed is really comfy and the bathroom large with a rainshower. We were lucky to be upgraded to ocean view room, which was great. The location is perfect. Two minuttes from the beach and Sense offer guest beach towels and chairs. You are on Ocean Drive where all the fun happens, but still far enough down the road to get a good night sleep. The pool area is relaxing and with nice maritime theme, like the hotel interiour. The pool is small, but nice as an option for the beach. The restaurant at the hotel is amazing. We booked a summer deal and got 25 percent discount room and continental breakfast included. It was lovely and a healthy start of the day with fresh fruit, bread and yoghurt. The blackened Mahi Mahi tacos are amazing and so is the burger. The all you can drink Mimosa for 19 dollar is good fun too. The most important feature of this hotel is still the staff, and i don't think you'll find better, more welcoming more attentive staff anywhere in Miami beach. We felt very well looked after, and would recommend this hotel to everyone who's visiting South Beach.

Whenever we drive over to Miami from Naples and stay overnight we first try to stay at Sense Beach House. This boutique hotel reminds me of my youth growing up in our summer Rhode Island cottage. The hotel is clean and the location is perfect. Staff has always been friendly and the value is excellent. The hotel offers beach blankets, chairs and bogie boards. Just walk across the street and enjoy the beautiful beach.
The reason the hotel did not get 5 stars was during out last trip. Bathroom has a strong mildew smell. Room and carpet are starting to look dirty..

We absolutely loved this hotel. It was super clean, beautifully designed, great location right next to the beginning of the strip of restaurants along the Ocean Drive, South Miami Beach. The service was also great, the hotel lets its guest borrow towels and umbrellas for the beach - great. The only minus for me was the vallet parking, which cost $29/day (not cheap exactly!) and one has to wait for the car being brought back every time and then there is expectation of additional tip - I could have done without it. However, this hotel was an amazing value for money, we loved it!

If you want to have an amazing stay in Miami, this is the place. I have been in several hotels before in Miami and Sense Beach House has perfect location, spotless service, outstanding food, great decor, comfy and modern rooms, relaxing pool area and easy access to the Beach. Highly recommended and a place to be back.

This is a boutique hotel with a difference. It is superbly located, comfortable and affordable with some of the best reception staff you could wish to meet (Yessy, take a bow). When you arrive at a hotel during the morning, you are normally told to store your bag and come back at the appointed check-in time. Not with this hotel. If the room is ready you can move straight in.

Th room itself was spacious, light and airy with an extremely comfortable bed plus a well-equipped bathroom. The hotel is well insulated, so you don't hear neighbours' snores or traffic noise.

We were made to feel very welcome and would not hesitate to rebook if we were in the area. Sense Beach House is well situated for bars, restaurants and public transport - not to mention the beach itself and you can even borrow their chairs.

The only downside is the cost of breakfast.

Room Tip: rooms do not have direct sea views but a room at the front of the hotel will give you a sea glimpse
