A perfect vacation experience. First, we would like to extend our appreciation to the staff for the exceptional customer service. The room more than meet our expectations, the plush robes, and the welcome gift made even more special We enjoyed the beach, restaurants, shopping, and the jazz clubs. Can not wait to return. A special thanks to Andrejas and Eva..

The resort was very nice and clean. The hot/tub spa on the rooftop was great. being right on Ocean drive is really great as you are basically in the middle of everything. The beach is basically across the street.

You can't find better location then Hilton Grand Vacations Club at South Beach, right in front of famous South Beach. We were here for 5 nights.

Super easy to get to from MIA airport, just hop on the bus #150 from the airport and get off the bus at 13th Street at South Beach, little less then 5 min walk, you are there. No need to pay a lot of $ for the taxi or shuttle. We have no problem riding this bus from/to Airport, clean and safe. 7 Days bus pass just $28. Cheaper then the taxi or shuttle ride.
If you are planning not to rent a car during your visit, this is the best option for you to get to the hotel. Parking is not cheap in this area anyway, maybe rent a car for a day to get somewhere, but you are in South Beach, easy walk to the shopping area ( Lincoln Rd and Collin Ave ) and restaurants.

Upon arrived at the hotel, the check in was easy, staffs are very friendly and helpful. Hotel is small, but very clean. BTW, there's no resort fee here. Free WiFi access.

Room is better then what we expect since they are suite, clean. There's kitchen in the suite, but we didn't use much since Ocean Drive have lots of restaurants around. Beach area just right across street. Area is safe and easy access to anywhere. Night time actually feels safe around Ocean Drive area.
No pool, but why needs one when the beach just 5 min walk away?
If you want to cook inside the suite, Supermarket Publix is not too far away from the hotel (0.9 mile/ 25 min walk).
During our stay, we have no problem with anything with the room (we were out mostly).
Check-out was easy and fast.

Since there's lot of restaurants around, is really depend on your taste and budget. There are couple restaurants that I will return to South Beach for it - Dore Restaurant inside Ritz-Carlton, Yuca on Lincoln Rd and super delicious pizza from Fratelli La Bufala.

We sure will return to this hotel next time when we are in South Beach.

Excellent location steps away from the beach and close to many restaurants and shopping. Excellent rooms with nice upgrades, clean and comfortable. Staff fiendly and helpful. No pool but spa on top terrace. Who needs a pool when the ocean is so close? Great experience. Planning to return soon.

Art Deco, Intimate, Boutique...great property and location. Very friendly, efficient staff. Ridiculous amount of great eating places, great park to run/walk with bike rental...not to mention the beach...right outside the front door. Great place for couples or friends. No reason to have a car here!

I have been visiting The Hilton Grand Vacation Club on South Beach on a yearly basis for the past 5 years. The accommodations and the service are excellent. Great location on South Beach with friendly staff. Although great for families with children, I think this is more of an adult oriented venue due to its proximity to night clubs, night life and bars.
