“Little heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We stayed at the Palms hotel for 4 nights. The hotel grounds are magnificient, very green around the pool area. The tiki bar is bery nice and the service is impeccable. Pricing is also good, not too expensive and a large choice of cocktails and food.
The room was very spacious and confortable.
The hotel is very clean.
Best thing was the breakfast, by the pool in the patio: large choice and excellent quality.
I would recommend this hotel if someone is looking for a hotel a bit far from Miami's south beach madness. There is a boardwalk that takes you directly to Ocean Drive and the heart of South Beach in about 20 minutes walking.

My wife and I spent a few days here last week - 3rd hotel we stayed in over the course of a week. The was the last, and the best one. Hotel was immaculate, staff addressed you by name in the restaurant and at the front desk. Everyone was very accommodating. Room and bed were comfortable. There is construction on a hotel next door, but there's nothing that can be done about that. Request a room on the opposite side from the construction (north side), and you'll never know it was going on. Grounds were lush and gave you the feeling of being in your own little oasis. Locked gates led to the beach and boardwalk. Would definitely recommend for couples.

Room Tip: Choose the north side for a more quiet experience. An ocean front would have a nice view of the oce...

Fantastic location, fantastic service, fantastic food. Did I mention this place is great? Right at the beach & boardwalk. A great pool. The rooms are awesome. This review sounds like a commercial. I love this place.

Spent a long weekend there this past weekend, service was nice, pool area was nice as well. Ate lunch at the hotel restaurant, food and service was great. Small things like more umbrellas in beach area would have been nice; but all in all a pleasant stay.

This is the 3rd year to South Beach on Mothers Day weekend. We have stayed at The Loews Hotel (meh), and The Kimpton Surfcomber (enjoyed). The Surfcomber was booked so we chose The Palms after a friend recommended it. From the moment we arrived we knew we made a great choice. The lobby decor is sophisticated yet relaxed, the pool area is like an oasis....gorgeous landscaping, nicely appointed with great chairs and umbrellas, pretty pool, tiki huts to order drinks or lunch and an easy walk to the beach.

Our room was spacious, comfortable beds and attractive bedding. Every single staff member from the front desk to the wait staff to the girls who worked in the small gift shop were friendly, accommodating and extremely pleasant.

We plan to return next year and are so happy to not have to hunt for a great hotel in SOBE as we have found it! Thanks to all. Can't wait to return!

Regarding the construction noise that has been mentioned regarding the hotel going up next door, we did hear a little bit on Friday afternoon....but it was minimal. Saturday and Sunday no workers on site so it was very quiet.

This hotel is highly recommended. We were here for a girl's weekend and it was perfect for our needs but I also would return for a couples trip. The hotel is on Collins Ave., very centrally located with direct beach access and about half way between the Fountainbleu and Ocean Drive area. The walk would be far to either but the cab ride was about 5 min tops. The grounds of this hotel were beautiful. Saw 2 weddings - one in a very pretty outdoor gazebo. Great pool area with tiki bar and lots of chairs, tables, hammocks, etc. Beware that the drinks at this bar are RIDICULOUSLY expensive. Food menu had a lot of options and great service. Bartenders come around the pool and beach area with free samples: frozen grapes, mango smoothies... nice little touch and overall, the entire staff was very friendly and accommodating. Rooms were fine. Very clean. Beds were comfortable and the upgraded room that we chose had 2 bathroom areas which helped with several girls getting ready at once: one had a shower and sink, the other had a toilet and sink. Didn't eat at the hotel but saw a nice outdoor breakfast area that other guests seemed to enjoy. Gift shop had coffees, lattes, small "to-go" type food. Always someone on hand to help with bags, call a taxi, etc. Overall, this hotel was a great choice. Felt like a mini-resort and truly made me feel like I was on vacation even though I was only away for a quick weekend getaway. Highly recommended.
