“Amazing view from the penthouse!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

We stayed at this hotel in November. The view of the beach from the jacuzzi at the penthouse was just amazing. The room was quite big. And the jacuzzi (with option to make it personal by drawing curtains) at the rooftop was very good.

Room Tip: Choose penthouse if you have the money for the view

Dear Ragh,

Thank you for you review of your recent stay at the Z Ocean.

I am glad to read you had a wonderful experience at the hotel and that you took advantage of your Rooftop Terrace Suite, the views from these units are amazing!!! You either have the beautiful view of the Ocean or the spectacular view of the skyline (my favorite)... as for the privacy curtain..... all I can say is I'm glad you like your Rooftop again.

All the best.....

Sincerely,

My husband and I stayed here for our wedding anniversary. Everyone was really friendly. Lovely room, we even had a bottle of wine waiting for us to help celebrate our special occasion - a really nice touch as we hadn't asked for it! Great location, great happy hour and a great stay!! Don't valet park at the hotel though, there is a multi story car par at the the end of the road and turn left - much cheaper!!!!! Would definitely recommend this hotel!!

Dear Jinsky,

Thank you for your recent review of the Z Ocean and once again wish you a happy anniversary.

Very happy to read of your recent experience and how much you enjoyed the accommodations, the staff, service and the proximity of the hotel to all the local attractions.

Like I've mentioned before we thrive on "going that extra mile" and being a boutique hotel allows us to really customize the guest experience.

Hope to see you back at the Z Ocean soon.

Z Ocean Hotel has been the "staple" for our annual girls trip. It goes without saying that our "home base" will be Z Ocean Hotel South Beach for many reasons. The location can't be beat! We can walk to all of our destinations (shopping, beach, restaurants). The rooms are spacious with many impressive amenities (2 vanities, waterfall shower,in-room espresso/beverage bar, 2 tv's, spacious balconies). The staff is always very attentive and accomodating. Our stay this year included a balcony jacuzzi which was an awesome ending to a long day of shopping and fun night of dinner and drinks! Housekeeping kept our room spotless and is always pleasant. This year we also had the pleasure of meeting the head Chef (Todd Webster), who made our dining experience at "The front porch" one to remember. Thanks again Z Ocean....we look forward to next years visit!!

Room Tip: Lanai rooms are most enjoyable for sun worshipers! Balcony jacuzzi rooms are awesome to have afte...

Dearest Teresa,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your recent visit to the Z Ocean for the THIRD time!!!!

It is wonderful to read how you and your girlfriends enjoyed your visit with us.

Our suites are perfect for ladies traveling together the two vanities in each room makes it even faster for you to get ready to party on South Beach. I forwarded your email to the housekeeping department, this is one of the hardest working departments in the hotels that really appreciate this kind of feedback.

I'm glad you have made us your new home on South Beach and are looking forward to welcoming you back again and again and again......

Hope to see you back here soon, to make some more memorable experiences.

Cheerio (i think that's how you say it)

We stayed here for our ten year anniversary. We booked a penthouse jacuzzi room and it was well worth it. They provided us with a complimentary bottle of wine for our anniversary, which was a nice touch. The bed is super comfortable. The rooftop terrace is specatular. I cannot say enough nice things about the service. From the front desk to the bell staff, they could not do enough for you and were so pleasant to deal with. Mickey, the concierage, was exceptional. He was very well informed with the area. He was dead on with the recommendations for dinners and lunches. We had some amazing food and it was all due to his recommendations. He is quite an assett to Z Ocean and the property is very luck to have him.

Room Tip: Get a penthouse room if you can

This was our fourth visit to this hotel in the past 2 years. i have already written a few reviews on it but thought I would add 2 more things. Firstly the addition of a full time concierge is a great idea. His name escapes me a t the moment but he was very helpful and knew more about the area than most people we asked. Secondly, we stayed in one of the rooftop penthouses as we usually do and at this price...WIFI SHOULD BE FREE!!!!!!!!!!!! If you are selling luxury then you have to offer luxury!!!! no hotel at this price range should be charging for wifi...stop nickel-and-dimming customers especially when you charge a resort fee!!!

My fourth stay at this wonderful hotel, always at the same time of year. Even though some of the furniture and decor in the rooms could do with a refurb I have to forgive my old friend because I love this hotel so much. The bed has to be one of the most comfy I have ever slept on and the hotel location is unbeatable. The staff are the friendliest in the world, so sweet and charming. Just keep on doing what you're doing Z Ocean and you'll always have my patronage.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on Ocean Drive.

Welcome back again and thank you so much for being a loyal customer all these years.

Very happy to read about your recent experience and how much you enjoyed the accommodations and especially the bedding... I receive more emails about how comfortable our beds are and where can people buy them, I'm thinking of selling them on our website.

For my 15th anniversary and the 60th birthday of my father I arranged a great visit to Florida. My wife and father weren’t aware that we would visit Florida. On big surprise trip !

Last time (2011) I also booked this hotel and I can say that it is really great. You should give the hotel a call before you go. They are very helpful and polite and they will arrange everything to satisfy your needs / demands. We got two great penthouses and we could enjoy some great breakfast in the morning!

Thanks all, you can be sure that I will always advise you to other people !

Sorry that I wrote this review this late but time really flies :-)
