I found the room to be very relaxing and I was able to get the rest I wanted during my stay. Overall the staff were friendly and helpful and the facility was nice. I would come again and also recommend South Beach to my other friends.

Beautiful stay for my bf & I. From making the reservation to checking in to checking out. From breakfast to evenings in the pool. The staff especially Troy & the other receptionist were very helpful & polite. Even the ladies in the restaurant. I would recommend anyone to stay here. I miss there already.
