“Great place on South Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

This is a small niche hotel spanning Ocean Drive to Collins Ave near 15th Street. It is just a few blocks to the Lincoln Road Mall in one direction or the ocean in the other. Our room was very nice, opening directly on the pool with our own small patio and table, the room itself was dark adn quiet for sleeping. The decor was trendy, with a partial partition enclosing a flat screen TV on each side separating the sleeping from the sitting area of the room. The bath had a large walk in shower, vanity area and toilet all partitioned from each other, allowing multi-use. Comfortable bed and furniture, overall this was a great find and we will stay there again when in the Miami area.

We visited a lot of different hotels while in South Beach, and were so happy we had booked our stay with Z Ocean. The other hotels along the same Calibur (SLS, Delano, etc) were around the same price, but we got a much better value at Z Ocean: bigger rooms, better more personable service, and our private jacuzzi on the roof! (Tip: Do not go to the roof to look at the jacuzzi or furniture until after they set it up. There's a reason they put towels on the patio furniture - its very old and outdated with rips and stains all over it)

The front desk staff and concierge were very helpful and seemed to know everyone by name. We got to the hotel at 7am, and by 10am they had a room ready for us. Unfortunately, the room that was ready at 10am was one of the rooms that was facing the empty lot next door. We called and asked to switch rooms, and they said there was nothing available but to check later in the afternoon at normal check in time... and guess what? They moved us then.

The Front Porch also had an amazing happy hour deal: $5 appetizers and half priced drinks. I think we had happy hour there almost every day! The bartenders are great, so if having happy hour, please be sure to leave an extra tip on top of the 20%, since it's based on the half price discont you're receiving.

Only complaint is that the pool really isn't a fun place to hang out, but who needs a pool when you have the beach across the street!

We spent 4 wonderful days at this small, lovely hotel. The room was a mini-suite with a frig, microwave, coffee maker, room safe, lots of storage, huge bathroom (great shower!!), evening turndown service, plenty of fluffy towels, etc. The balcony was the the length of the whole room and overlooked Collins Ave. We enjoyed sitting out there watching the world go by and that wall of glass and sliding door made for a very bright room. We also enjoyed relaxing by the pool on the 2nd floor. All the employees were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a great location, close to the beach and the boardwalk, great restaurants on Lincoln Road and Espanola Way. We would love to return here on a future trip to South Florida.

The rooms were very nice and large. It is in a great location, although not directly on beach. The location is good for walking to many locations in the south beach area. The Front Porch has good food, but no fine dining in this hotel. Try the watermelon martini in the bar, very good!
Everyone was very nice & accommodating.

Great locations, good quality and service, but overpriced. You always get what you pay for, but is it is a good value for money?! Probably not the best. If you need good, quite, quality time with someone special, it is a good choice, if you need a place just to sleep while hanging out most of the day on the beach or night in clubs, then maybe you need to look for something cheaper.

Good one overall.

This Boutique Hotel out did themselves in the quality of the services offered. The accommodations were the best we have ever experienced, rooms new clean and chic, the customer service was above and beyond excellent. I cannot express how terrific the whole experience was. You got to choose this Hotel above the others on south Beach, you won't regret it!

Room Tip: A room on the pool floor would be nice if you don't want to do the beach. The beach is just outs...
