“Fabulous hotel in South Beach!”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

This was our second visit to the Z Hotel. We loved the suite with the upstairs hot tub. Employees could not be any friendlier or helpful. Restaurant food is excellent. We can't wait for another visit! I would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Room with a partial ocean view on upper floor

My husband mother and step father stayed here at the end of February and it was my third year returning for the same weekend. The hotel is very accommodating to room requests. The service by the pool is always great and the Manager Frank was wonderful. The pool side lanai rooms are my favorite!! We look forward to returning again next year.

My wife and I spent 4 great nights at the Z Ocean at the end of January 2013. This was our first stay at Z-Ocean and we will stay again.
We have been to SOBE many times and we like to stay at the north end of Ocean Drive in SOBE as it is close to the beach, easy walking distance to great restaurants, and Lincoln Ave -- but away from the noise and clamor of the south end of Ocean Drive.
This is a very nice condo-hotel with a very wide variety of room layouts. We stayed in what they call a Lanai pool-side suite on the 2nd floor. This room had a door wall to a patio and the pool.
The room we had was very nicely decorated with king size bed, great bathroom with a wonderful shower, 2 TVs, microwave and what I think they call a chiller box (not a refrigerator). The chiller box will help keep items somewhat cold -- but not as cold as a refrigerator would. So bringing back food items from dinner for eating the next day may not be safe.
If money is no object, I would suggest the 4th floor suites which includes a 5th floor deck and private jacuzzi.
The hotel charges a daily resort fee of ~$25 which provides two beach lounges, towels, and beach umbrella. This is actually not a bad deal as renting these items from the beach vendor would be more expensive.
The hotel has a 2nd floor pool and jacuzzi which due to the design of the hotel is not very large -- but it is adequate for swimming and chilling out in the jacuzzi. There just isn't a lot of lounge chairs available for sunning. But the beach is a short walk away - so they really aren't needed. There is also a pool side bar for drinks and ordering food.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome.
The on-site restaurant is called the Front Porch This restaurant has been located on Ocean Drive for many years in another location and moved to the Z Ocean a couple of years ago. It is a very busy restaurant at breakfast and has GREAT whole-grain pancakes. I highly recommend you give them a try.

All-in-all we had a great trip and will definitely consider staying at the Z-Ocean again.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms face onto Collins Ave - which for us was not something we wanted. So check on loca...

Loved the rooms, the beds the bathroom and the huge outdoor patio. Beautifully appointed rooms with kitchenette (including microwave). Nice small boutique feel. Great location too...and it has a pool and hot tub on the second floor as well as a private beach area right across the street. Friendly staff, very pleasant. The restaurant is good, though more diner fare than gourmet. Breakfast served all day till 6. Always seems to be busy. And very reasonable prices at the restaurant as well as the hotel.

We recently did a girls reunion getaway and we choose South Beach as our destination...great decision we had a great location at this hotel so we all parked our cars and forgot about them for the rest of the weekend. This hotel is in the middle of everything we were able to walk to restaurants and clubs and across the street was the amazing WHITE SANDS OF MIAMI BEACH!!!
The rooms were very spacious, modern and clean the beds were heavenly!
But I also have to give kudos to the staff who were at our beck and call especially Frank Fuentes who was a true charmer and knew all the great things for us to do ...Thanks for everything!!

Dear Diva,

Thank you so much for your kind words and I am so glad you ladies enjoyed your weekend. I always tell guests that drive to just park and go... We are walking distance to everything shopping, dining and nightlife... I do remember you ladies had the spa treatments poolside during your visit while sipping champagne (now that's a girlfriend getaway SOBE Style).

Looking forward to seeing you back soon.

All the best
