Dear Herman,

Thank you for your recent comments on your stay with us and thank your for being a loyal customer. Very happy to hear about your wonderful experience once again with us. I always tell corporate travelers that South Beach is a great alternative to Downtown. You can do your business during the day and relax on South Beach in the evening.

Hope to you back at the Z soon.

Take care,

We stayed from Sunday nite till Thursday in November. Weather nice-- location perfect, walking distance to all of South Beach- a block away from the noise etc Staff and facilities were great! Clean and from the front desk staff to the ladies bringing you fresh towels Awesome!! Hope it stays like that,we will only stay at the Z when we go to South Beach.

Room Tip: Watch you restaurant bill, Many restaurant's add a gratuity to your bill even when you are only...

Dear 5,

So nice to hear about your recent visit with us and your stay here at the Z.

I will ensure to pass the comments along to the team, especially Front Desk and Anna on the Pool Deck. It's very rewarding to know that we were gracious, attentive and accountable during your week visit.

As for your suggestion/tip your correct most restaurants and bars on the beach do automatically add gratuities to your bills so please always make sure to check before adding any extra gratuities to your servers.

Thanks again and hope to see you back with us soon.

Sincerely yours,


Frank Fuentes

Hotel is beautiful and has multiple conveniences. The onsite open air lobby bar has convenient hours, great food and drink specials and the bartender is an amazing mixologist. I didn’t use the pool because we had one of their penthouse suites with rooftop Jacuzzi but it looked very nice. The room itself was spacious and had little touches that made it very livable for our group of three. The location is right by the beach, has a 24 hour diner right across the street, and a corner store that’s also open 24 hours diagonal from the diner. You can walk to the hot spots nearby or take a cab for under $10. Vanessa and Staicy made our stay even more special; thank you ladies. My only recommendation would be that they should have the speakers closer to the Jacuzzi because on one occasion, the security, kind of rudely, asked us to turn down our music. The only reason it was a bit loud was because it is placed so far away from the Jacuzzi. It’s not like we weren’t on the floor where the only things there are Jacuzzi’s either. Besides the experience with the security our entire stay and every staff member was pleasurable.

Dear RowPersaud,

Thank you for your comments on your recent visit to the Z Ocean Hotel South Beach.

Very happy to read of your wonderful stay. My sincere apologies for your encounter with our security team and management has spoken to them in reference to how they approach guests. Thank you for your recommendation on moving speakers closer to hot tub, I agree if your going to take a soak in our hot tubs your on South Beach so crank it up!!! We are looking into replacing our hot tubs and I'll suggest perhaps looking into new ones which comes with built in waterproof speakers!!

Thanks again for visiting with us, hope to see you back here soon.

Sincerely yours,

Would definitely return again... Good location and easy access to the beach. Professional, friendly and helpful staff, from the front desk to the bellmen (including Domingo who was especailly helpful) to the valet parking attendants, they helped make the stay relaxing and pleasurable.

Room Tip: The 'street side' is a little more noisy at night regarding sleep.

We stayed at The Z for the first leg of our Honeymoon after our gorgeous wedddibg in the UK. We checked in and decided to upgrade to the Penthouse Rooftop terrace - best move. We made our way upto PentHouse 25.
We was absolutley made up with our gorgeous room with chic boutique styling. It had a his and hers bathroom with Aveda products to use,massive gorgeous bed,plasma,sofa area,espresso coffee maker,hairdryer,iron,mini bar,glasses etc. The balcony looked out onto the pool area with a spiral staircase upto our own private rooftop with hot tub,double lounger, single loungers,table/chairs and fridge!!

Our terrace seemed like the best room in the whole of the hotel. We looked out onto the Atlantic Ocean and Ocean Drive - it really was perfection. We drank Mojito's watching the sun go down. A real escape from the crazy world that we live in.

The staff at the Z are also very helpful and nothing is too much trouble.

I would without a doubt stay here again on our next visit to Miami. It's not cheap but worth every penny for a taste of luxury.

Room Tip: PH 25 is good choice - at the back looking over ocean

Dear Leesa,

First let me start off by saying congratulations and thank you for that great review! I'm glad that you were able to experience so much of the Z Ocean Ocean during your honeymoon.

You did have on the few Rooftop Penthouses that we like to call the best of both worlds with both Ocean and City views. I'm glad that you found our staff accommodating and helpful towards your needs during your visit.

Hopefully you'll return on your first anniversary or sooner.....

Take care,

From the warm and efficient welcome at reception to the furnishing of our room this hotel oozed quality. Our room was at the poolside and we had two dedicated loungers and fresh towels every morning. The pool has glass panels in the bottom, viewable by people walking along the 'breezeway' underneath. There were two TVs in the bedroom, two fridges, a microwave and a nespresso machine. Our room was right at the end of the hotel and didn't pick up wi-fi, room wi-fi was $15 per night anyway. There was free wi-fi access in the hotel lobby. The hotel has underground valet parking, I think that was about $30 a day. The hotel is close to the beach and all the beachfront hotels with restaurants very close by, including a 24hr diner opposite. A very enjoyable stay.

I can echo the great comments about this hotel having just returned from a great weekend spent at the Z. The location is in a terrific spot in S. Beach and we found the staff and the accomodations to be top notch. The rooms are wonderful suites and we thought their bar served the best mojitos that we ever tasted. We didn't take advantage of it but we heard from others that their restaurant serves the best breakfasts in S. Beach. It was also great to use their private spot on the beach which came with an umbrella and lounge chairs. The Z is a bit funky which we loved and it fits the location. We can't wait to come back!

Dear Wromig,

Dear Wromig,

Thank you for taking the time to share your great feedback. Being a bit funky is what we like!! We are truly delighted that you enjoyed everything about your stay - from our location to the best mojitos (EVER).

It certainly sounds like you had a great weekend stay.....

BTW the Front Porch Cafe does serve the best breakfast on the beach and dinner is delicious as well.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon to South Beach!

Sincerely yours,

Frank "Bit Funky" Fuentes
