The location of this hotel is excellent, just a few blocks from Lincoln Road and right across from the beach.
The front desk were always helpful and accommodating. The room was fairly basic with a view of a wall but more than adequate for our needs with a bathroom stocked with nice toiletries and lots of fluffy towels. The free Wifi was strong enough to Skype in the room.
Free breakfast was a nice touch - basic but enough to start the day - juice, cereal, fruit, yogurt, pastries - although it would have been nice to have toasted bread (the only thing on offer was bagels). The pool area was pleasant and uncrowded and the area behind the pool (with hammocks) was a nice secluded spot. One side of the pool was in shade for the whole time we were there, although there is also a raised deck for sun-worshippers. The pool attendant did a great job keeping the pool area clean, providing pool towels and topping up the iced water (with apple) - very refreshing.
The 'gym' was actually just a couple of pieces of fairly old machinery in a room by the side of the pool
The hotel was booked on Hotwire so we didn't know what we were getting until we paid, This can sometimes be a gamble but we were more than happy with the South Seas Hotel at a price which is much less than many Miami Beach Hotels.
