Z Ocean is the perfect hotel for adults over 40 who want to enjoy South Beach without the twenty-somethings. I highly recommend the rooftop suite, it is worth the price. The restaurant is nice for drinks but the food is not good at all. Skip the restaurant and dine at a nearby spot with 2 for 1 drinks!

The rooms are beautiful and service was stellar. Do not skip seeing Mickey the concierge. He knows all about good food and night life. We stay at The Ritz usually but gave this a try and we will definitely be back.

Dear mclickner,

Thank you for taking the time to review on your recent stay at the Z Ocean Hotel South Beach. I must agree with you Mickey is an amazing concierge , it is truly amazing how he knows all the hot spots and best restaurants and stays so slim!!!!! At the hotel we take great pride in the fact that we are able to offer this great experience to all of our guests and considering you normally stay at the R Hotel up the street thank you it's an honor to be compared!!

My husband and I booked 7 nights at Z Ocean Hotel using our Priority Points. It was our first visit to Miami and this hotel was perfect for our needs. From the minute we arrived until we left we commented on how pleased we were with the hotel and staff. On our first night we received a complimentary bottle of red wine and welcome note from General Manager Ramon. I'm not sure if this is the norm for Platinum members but it very much appreciated (by my husband as I only drink white). Mickey, the concierge was extremely helpful and a really nice guy and all reception staff were a credit to the company. Every time we passed through we received a hello and a smile. I must mention how wonderful the housekeeping staff were. Every day our bed was remade, toiletries and coffee restocked and bottles of water and chocolate left in the evenings, excellent. The hotel itself looks far better than you expect from the outside. The lobby, reception and bar are bright and airy, the rooms are modern and spacious with a good sized balcony and the pool is great. We made use of the sunbeds and towels by the beach and again great service here and very close the hotel. The location is ideal for exploring Miami beach. It's close enough to walk everywhere but far enough away from the noisiest parts of Ocean Drive ensuring undisturbed sleep. When we return to Miami we will definately stay here again and I have no hesitation recommending it. I noticed a resort fee mentioned in some reviews. As a priority club member we don't pay but if I did have to it's something I would have to research beforehand.

My wife and I just spent 3 nights a the Z Ocean Hotel. We have stayed at a number of South Beach hotels over the years and this is our new favorite. We upgraded our room to a penthouse unit with a roof deck and hot tub which we thoroughly enjoyed. The room was excellent with a great view of the pool and the ocean. The bathroom and, especially the shower, were great. Seen from the outside, the hotel is not impressive; however, once inside the hotel really shines. The staff was great. Very friendly and helpful. The concierge provided excellent dinner recommendations. We are already looking forward to our next visit...

Room Tip: Our west-facing room (427) had a nice view of the pool and the ocean.

Dear DeanP,

Thanks so much for your positive comments, we truly take pride in providing top notch service at the Z Ocean Hotel South Beach. It is one of our main priorities that when you visit the Z, the intimate boutique atmosphere feels like a home away from home and upgrading to a Rooftop Terrace Suite. It pleases me that you were able to experience the wonderful atmosphere in a rooftop which is truly a unique experience. We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the near future.

We spent 4 nights at Z Ocean Hotel and would be happy to go back. This hotel had nice rooms with all the things you require for a comfortable stay. It had a nicely appointed kitchenette with a spare fridge for your own drinks as well as the mini bar fridge. The bed was comfortable and the the large bathroom was exceptional. It had a generous size balcony with good out door furniture. We had a room on the Ocean Drive of the hotel so the only minor complaint was that it was quite noisey.
Location was ideal. Close to beach, close to restaraunts and close to shops.
Staff were pleasant and housekeeping was efficient. Highly recommend.

Great location, lovely rooms with nice facilities including two TVs, coffee machine etc. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The only tiny downside was the $22 daily charge for towels, beach beds and wifi in the lobby (extra for wifi in the bedrooms). It wasn't positioned as a optional charge and felt a unreasonable, given we barely used these 'extras'. Why not include it in the room rate!?! We arrived on our wedding night and thought we'd paid everything upfront! The last thing we wanted to think about was money.

Dear jhevans10,

First of all congratulations on your wedding and thank you for choosing the Z Ocean Hotel to share your first night as husband and wife. We truly appreciate your remarks on the Z Ocean Hotel South Beach we greatly appreciated it, a real boutique experience is what we try to curate everyday day for all of our guests. As for our daily resort fee of $22 perhaps it wasn't explained correctly during your check in process but we don't like to nickel and dime our guests during their visit so we charge a flat rate for these services which includes beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, wireless in all public areas (free in guest rooms as of July 1st), two bottles of water daily, nightly turn-down amenity and service, newspaper service and a few other items that hotels charge up to $50 nightly in additional fees. Please come back soon if not for your first anniversary and we will make your next stay even more memorable. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Z in the near future.

All the best,

Frank Fuentes

We stay in beginning of May for three nights.
Location is excellent!
Room was very spacious. Modern furniture, two bathroom, good walk-in shower, kitchen area with nespresso machine and daily capsules refill.

Only negative point is laundry service we use. They damaged my polo and put it on hangers as nothing happens. When I noted and complained housekeeping manager send it back to laundry and reduce my laundry invoice by 10$.
