“Great hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

We moved to this hotel after we got stuck in Miami due to hurrican Sandy. The grounds were great and the hotel had a heated pool which also had a large area for lounge chairs. The bar also had a happy hour from 5pm to 7pm where drinks were half price and they gave you a nut assortment for snacking. The prices were right on track during happy hour and made our stay more enjoyable. The room we stayed in had little walking around room, but was very nice and clean. The bathroom/shower and toilet were in separate rooms and added a nice touch to the room layout. We also asked if we could have a small fridge in our room and the clerk agreed readily and it was sent up right away. There was no additional charge for the fridge which was great. We were also allowed to check-in at 1pm before the stated time which was 3pm. We loved this hotel and would stay here again.

Room Tip: There is a Subway and deli just two blocks away if you want cheap eats. We also went to a small Cub...

Stayed in South Beach for the week. My BFF and I went for the day for massages and to relax and have lunch by their very lovely pool. The services and food were all top-notch: great and memorable day!

This hotel is a great place to get away and really feel like you are in a Carribean resort. Amazing food, great service and super comfortable rooms. Trendy but private. The coffee bar downstairs was great as was the breakfast at the restaurant. Food blew me away and I am very hard to please when it comes to that stuff. The rooms were super cool and the beds were beyond comfortable. I loves the whole vibe of this hotela nd it really made me feel like I was in Aruba.

Room Tip: Get a beach view room.

This hotel is modern, well maintained and staffed with friendly and helpful people
The restaurant is excellent, pool and ocean beach facilities superb.
Priced below other hotels further south on the beach.
Spa excellent and has well trained professional staff

Kids were welcome but nothing special for them. Pool does not have a very shallow end {4ft} so for those under 7 you will need to supervise closely.

Room Tip: penthouse suites 1204, 1202 are on the ocean, 1201 faces the inland waterway. al are open and airy w...

Had the pleasure to relax here a couple of times now and both stays were excellent!
Lovely private beach, pool and garden....great rooms....lovely service and staff were really helpful.
Cocktails (to die for!) made a mess of me on a couple of occasions.....but the 'pick-your-own-ingredients' omelets for breakfast were amazing for the recovery process, especially with the super-fresh herbs picked straight from the hotel gardens. Could have benefited from a stint in the lovely spa, but opted for good old Vitamin D courtesy of the sunbeds. Zzzzzzzzzzzz. Blissful memories!

I have to say hats off to Magellan travel & The Palms Hotel & Spa. I was pleasantly surprised upon my arrival as they granted me an early check in for 1pm and everyone there was friendly and accommodating. Granted we flew in right after Hurricane Sandy, and the street flooded very badly during the evenings, to where they weren’t even passable via sidewalks, but other than that the hotel grounds were unaffected. I will say that if you are looking to stay in the heart of South Beach, this is not it. There was a 2.5 mile walk down the boardwalk to get to South Beach shops & dinning, so bring your walking shoes. The beach outside the hotel was spectacular!!! They didn’t charge for chairs or umbrellas, and they serve drinks and lunch on the beach! The part that I can really toot their horn about is the fact that they bring you cold peppermint infused face towels on the beach to cool down with during a tanning session. NICEEEE!!! I would definitely stay here again... Sorry I am rambling; just want to make sure I covered it all. Oh and the maids come by in the evening to ensure you have everything you need and to put chocolates on your pillows. Very, very nice. The food is pricey, but it is worth it. Everything was tasty.. from the burgers to the chicken spaghetti..

Room Tip: Get a Oceanfront Suite....

Rarely do you find a place that strikes all the sensory chords... From the pianist charming the atmosphere and the beautiful decor, to the friendly service, not to mention the delectable food. My wife and I were very pleased with the level of service. Manny, the restaurant manager, took care on occasion visiting our table to be sure we were satisfied with our experience; he was met with a resounded "Yes!"
