“Outstanding!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

My girlfriend and I went on a spur of the moment "spring break" vacation in early april , and she booked us at the Z. I am so glad she did. The room was well furnished , comfortable , and clean. The terrace was outstanding! Mickey, the concierge, and the rest of the staff where super helpful, really made our stay fun.
We will be back!!!

Our second stay at the Z Ocean and it was fantastic as before. It's a Crowne Plaza and part of IHG group so I booked it with my points. Check in was efficient and friendly. The room was excellent and there was a complimentary bottle of wine waiting to thank me for my membership.
The quality and size of room was excellent. We had a Lanai Suite, which opens to the pool area which is great, plus you have your own reserved table, chairs and loungers.
Great location on Collins Avenue and a few seconds walk to Ocean Drive.
If you want to be near the Ocean Drive nightlife but stay somewhere slightly quieter then this is the ideal spot...
Superb hotel!

My partner and I stayed here in November 2013, this hotel is in a perfect location... only a walk across the road to the beach, a couple of blocks to the main shopping in South Beach, and a stroll to heaps of beachfront restaurants. Unfortunately we only stayed a night before a cruise but cannot wait to come back and enjoy this hotel again, wonderful clean rooms and friendly staff (concierge, reception, bar and restaurant staff all very friendly and helpful!) and highly recommend the city view roof top terrace suite, (lovely to watch the sun go down with a cocktail in your own private hot tub!). Definitely worth the extra money, thank you for a great stay!

Room Tip: Roof top terrace suites! All hotels should have them!

I stayed at Z Ocean last week with 2 friends. We were totally blown away with the service the staff gave. We couldn't fault one thing, which rarely happens when visiting hotels. The location is perfect, the staff were so helpful and friendly, the rooms were not huge but lovely nonetheless. It was clean, and we had a fantastic pool area just outside our back door which was so convenient. There's a great little bar near the lobby area and a restaurant which does delicious food. All in all this was one of our best trips and the service at the hotel was a huge contributing factor.

Room Tip: We stayed in a Lanai suite which was perfect for easy access to the pool

My kids and I stayed in this hotel on March 23rd-March 28th, 2014.
Pros: The hotel is in a perfect location. The room is clean (But a little on the small side). Particularly liked the bathroom layout. With Toilet in the center and one sink on each side of the Toilet. The sink and Toilet area are separated, so three of us can use the bathroom in the same time.
The staff are friendly. Domingo who works at Concerige desk was extremely helpful. He went out his way to make sure the trip he helped us booked to everglades went smoothly. His friendly smile, his patience to my endless questions made our trip much more enjoyable.

Cons: The cleaning staff forgot to reset the alarm o'clock, It woke us up early in the first morning twice. We had trouble open the patio door. It gets noisy in the hallway.

But in general, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel to people.

Good Afternoon Spelic2014,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review! We are extremely thankful for having Domingo as an associate and that he was able to assist you with the everglades tour and all your questions. The bathroom is loved by everyone. It is true that 3 individuals can use the bathroom at once which is the best part of the design. We are extremely saddened to hear that the alarm clock woke you up early twice. Please be assured that our Director of Housekeeping has been informed and is in the process of following up with the housekeeping staff to avoid this issue with any other guest. Your comments and feedback are extremely important to us! Hopefully we see you back at the Z Ocean Hotel soon!

Warm Regards,
Z Ocean Hotel Management

This is not a cheap hotel. Not as expensive as some in this area, but still not cheap.
Room was a good size with large balcony but i would have traded most of that for not hearing every conversation or door closing in the corridor - it is as if the walls to the corridor were made of paper. Between the rooms nothing, but from the corridor - every sound.
Location here is great.
Staff very helpful.
Pool is nicely designed but not huge amounts of seating area around it.
Overall would not return unless deal very good to do so.
Brunch was slow and incorrect from restaurant.
Bar has zero atmosphere but bar tenders very friendly and helpful.

My boyfriend and I decided on staying at Z Ocean after reading through so many mixed trip advisor reviews for hotels in South Beach. While initially put off by the entrance to the hotel, we did find that it was really well situated for getting around South Beach. The hotel isn't directly on the beach but there was beach access quite literally 3 minutes walk away and great beach services that were shared with the Betsy hotel. The hotel itself had a good restaurant for breakfast and lunch (not too pricey either) and had a nice calm pool area with very friendly and attentive staff. In general, we were very impressed by the level of service offered by everyone at the hotel. The hotel concierge, Mickey, was great for finding tickets to the Miami Heat and for suggesting other things to do in the area. The rooms themselves were nice and clean, with balconies offering sun loungers. The bathroom, which wasn't perhaps private enough for our own liking all the time, did have a lovely wet room/shower. The few minor issues (one unclean pillowcase at arrival and a fellow guest talking loudly by the pool area at 2am) were dealt with very quickly and professionally by the staff. Having never stayed in South Beach before, I can't really comment on the value of the hotel with regards to price but I think it was fair with regards to rooms and services and would definitely recommend the hotel strongly based on our experiences with its staff.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the pool area which was mostly very quiet.
