“Perfect value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Location, service and price together was perfect. It is close to the beach but not first line of hotels. There is swimming pool with enought shade. Cook area next to pool, which is good place to talk with other people.

You get what you pay for. It is very clean, hospitable and amazing location.

This is a more typical hostel if you stay in the shared rooms - there are also private rooms. You have to bring your own towel and also make your own bed when you get there!

Location is great for day time but is noisy at night given its central location.

Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Away from Collins Ave for a quieter room

Ok me and my boys stayed here the weekend of june the 7th, and I have no complaints. Except the elevator is slow. Outside of that, its a clean room, hot water, comfortable bed, and the location is EXCELLENT. We even played poker on the deck thing by the pool and ended up drinking with some people from Germany. Everything is within walking distance and the price was the best part. You cant beat this hotel.

I always stay in Tropics hotel when in Miami.. have been there 5 or 6 times already.
The hotel are in a really good location in South Beach; walking distance to Lincoln Road and Española Way. Buses to downtown Miami or Aventura Mall / north Miami Beach easily accessible as well.
As I said, you have what you paid for, which means, don't expect too much for the 60 bucks / night or so you paid for the private room (I've never stayed in the shared rooms - hostel - so I can't give an opinion about that).
The single room is actually big and nice. Comfortable bed, flat TV, closet with safe, small bathroom. The only bad thing in the room is the wood window blind (doesn't really protect from the outside lights - which is really bothering if you are in rooms facing the street).
Hotel cleanliness is poor, mainly due to the young "partygoers" guests who don't really care about it. Those guests are also responsible for the main problem of the hotel: Noise. I don't really care about it, but if you do, I'd look for a more expensive place to stay.

This was probably my fourth time staying at the Tropics and I am never disappointed. The staff are pleasant and helpful, the rooms are basic but clean. The pool and tables by poolside are a great place to spent time after time at the beach. The location can't be beat as well as the rates are good for South Beach. I will return again to the Tropics. See you this fall!

I was in the tropics for 2 weeks and i really enjoyed my stay. I was in a private room and everything was good. 3mn from the beach or if you prefer the pool it´s just next door... The personnel was very helpfull and always ready to advice you. It´s really a good price-quality ratio if you are still hesitating for a place in south beach go there !!

I stayed for 7 nights in a female only dorm. Room was clean & tidy with an ensuite. The window in the bathroom did not stay open by itself & as there was no fan & the window in the room did not open, we had to improvise.
No lockers in the room but you could leave valueables at reception.
Staff were friendly - was not told about the kitchen by the pool though.
If you're not going to spend much time at the hotel/hostel then I recommend this place.
Wifi is only available in the lobby.
Booked tours through the hotel. One went fine the other did not & when I complained I was fobbed off & told to talk to another person & the situation didnt get rectified before I left. Recommend booking straight with the tour company.
