“Great Visit”
Reviewed May 25, 2014 via mobile

Loved the decor and the super friendly staff. Small room but very comfortable....would be nice to have coffee available in rooms. Staff made great restaurant suggestions.
Danny was incredibly helpful with our luggage and loading our car. Great attitude and helpful suggestions for our stay. The pool was beautiful, would be nice if it stayed open later.

We spent two nights in the Gale South Beach Hotel. To be honest we were a bit underwhelmed. Our room was very small which would have been fine if we had only been staying a couple of nights and had small suitcases but we had been travelling for three weeks and there was hardly any room to open our cases. Furthermore, there was no hanging space, only a couple of hooks and an under bed drawer. The rooms really need upgraded. Our bathroom sink was full of cracks and chips and the tiles looked dirty. On a positive note the bed was very comfy and sheets were clean. We received fresh towels on a daily basis. The service from the front desk was good and the food that we tried was ok. I think if we visit Miami again we would definitely try somewhere else as this is definitely not a 4.5 star hotel, probably a 3 in my opinion.

Room Tip: We were overlooking a building site so maybe ask for a room facing Collins St.

Loved this place and the staff was amazing! The rooms, although small (which was explained to us beforehand) were very clean but I do wish there was more storage. The restaurant downstairs (The Dolce) was excellent and our waiter Dominico (Mimo) was exceptional! Informative of the dishes and never steered us wrong on what he suggested. Very personable as well. We also enjoyed the service we received from Carmilo (Milo) who was our bartender and waiter on separate occasions. A lot of fun and once again excellent service. This was a family vacation and we were celebrating three birthdays and Mothers Day at the same time. None of this we could have done without the help of Gili our wonderful concierge!! Not only did she make arrangements for extras to be delivered to each room before we even got there to help celebrate, but she went above and beyond while we were there! I wish I could name everyone that made our stay so enjoyable but there was not one staff member that did not make us all feel special! Every one was wonderful! The location of the hotel was perfect, the staff was amazing and the rooms were very clean...definitely coming back as soon as we can!! Highly recommend staying here!

We spent 2 nights at the hotel , the location was excellent within walking distance to everything ; the room was very small ; the bar was excellent ; very friendly staff and very helpful ; the swimming pool is on the roof , it's small but with pretty views from the top ; extremely expensive drinks at the pool bar.

My husband and I stayed here during the Christmas holiday. The hotel is in a pretty good location. We could walk to the main restaurant area as well as the beach. The room was very clean but as lots reviews explain, very small. It would not be practical for someone not staying with close friends or a lover. Hotel staff is pretty friendly. Was not too impressed by the restaurant, seem to be one note and staff there was not friendly. All in all nice clean hotel up to my sometimes too high standards. I would stay again.

The Gale South Beach is a great property in a super location. Comfy beds, accommodating and hospitable staff. Roof top pool area is very nice. Recommend this property. Convenient to transportation and really good restaurants. Bar at the back is a must. Cocktails and vibes are incredible
