“Love this hotel!”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

This past July made our second trip in two years to Miami, and both times we stayed at the Z Ocean on South Beach. The location is perfection, the rooms are big and comfortable. The shower I want to replicate in my house as it is the best shower I have ever had in my life. This hotel is in walking distance of any and everywhere you could possibly want to go, and if you would prefer to bike it, then there are bike rentals directly across the street. I can't imagine staying anywhere else when I visit South Beach. The only reason it did not receive 5 stars is because it does have a tendency to get a little warm in the room at night.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the side of Ocean Drive vs. Collins, as Collins side tends to be very loud.

Whenever I'm in Miami I try to stay @ the Z Ocean because it's trendy enough but yet boutique in it's size. The service is always wonderful and the staff is extremely friendly. It's close to everything "South Beach" and has some amazing rooftop balconies with your own private jacuzzi. If your ever in south beach and looking for clean, inviting spot to stay, I'd try here first.

I was really excited about coming to stay at the Z Ocean's Hotel because of all the great reviews I had been reading. My trip isn't until next week, but I wanted to call to make sure everything was still in order. When I called to speak with reservations about my stay, the women that was "helping" me was noticeably rude and very unwelcoming. I'm hoping my arrival, stay, & experience at the Z Ocean's Hotel are more like the great reviews I've read about, rather than my experience speaking with a representative via telephone. Still looking forward to having great first stay!

Took the whole family to Miami Beach for 3 days before heading off to DisneyWorld. The hotel staff were superb, epecially Jose at the front desk. Nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were spacious and the complimentary toiletries were Aveda, my favourite. Restaurant food also superb. I would definitely book this hotel when I come to Miami again. The only thing that could be faulted was the poor wifi reception which was virtually non-existent in our rooms (although we were at the far end of the hotel). Wifi is important to international travellers without data roaming.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 days after a cruise and my children (28-35) as well as my husband and I loved it. The rooms are suites and are indescribable! The hotel is right across from South Beach and include wonderful padded lounges and umbrellas right on Southbeach courtesy of the hotel. People there set everything up for you and reserve them. My kids loved this.

I was in Miami for a Bachelorette party and we stayed at the Z Ocean Plaza. The location was amazing, the price was great and the staff was friendly and willing to work with us over anything. Our rooms were beautiful and clean. Literally have nothing bad to say about this place!

We stayed at Z Ocean for a bachelorette party and the hotel was absolutely perfect! The staff couldn't have been better - the front desk staff, management, pool attendant & housekeeping were all 5 star. Additionally, the rooms were beautiful and spacious!! I would highly recommend staying here whether with family/ kids or with all adults.

Room Tip: All the rooms are amazing!!!
