Kimpton Surfcomber Hotel

Miami, Florida

The hotel

Life’s a beach at the Kimpton Surfcomber, a central hotel boasting direct access onto those famous Miami sands as well as breathtaking ocean views. As an alternative, the over-sized pool is a popular place to laze by, complete with poolside bar serving refreshing cocktails and palm trees swaying in the breeze. There’s also a range of ‘Daylife’ activities on offer, including mixology seminars, kids ice cream breaks and guided Deco Bike tours along the famed Art Deco District and Collins Avenue. When it comes to dining, you’ve plenty on your doorstep but the Gastro Pub Restaurant is well worth a visit with its laid-back, friendly vibe. For a pre-dinner cocktail, The Social Club is ideal and don’t miss out on the complimentary Hosted Wine Hour – held from 5.00-6.00pm in the lobby.

A very good hotel regarding ambiance and service. The ‘vibe’ is good. Not to noisy. Pool service is excellent; they set up at the chairs with the provided pool towels. Regarding food and drinks at the pool: nothing special, just okay. Rooms are not big but large enough. Room cleaning service is okay (timing of somewhat irregular which can become… Read more
A very good hotel regarding ambiance and service. The ‘vibe’ is good. Not to noisy. Pool service is excellent; they set up at the chairs with the provided pool towels. Regarding food and drinks at the pool: nothing special, just okay. Rooms are not big but large enough. Room cleaning service is okay (timing of somewhat irregular which can become annoying when after a day at the beach/pool the room is still not done around 4.15pm and you miss the new towels for showering). Nevertheless, this is absolutely a favorite hotel for us. We will return to this hotel when visiting Miami Beach again. Pool parties at neighbors (SLS) might be experienced as loud but then again this is South Beach. It is part of SoBe’s charm. If you look for a quiet place, look further. Read less

Stayed at the kimpton surfcomber this visit for seven days. First time. First for the hotel room, ok room but for a kimpton need to step it up. Plus we had booked a 485 sq foot room according to Orbitz and were in a room half the size. Received a message would be taken care of and never heard from anyone.

Stayed at the kimpton surfcomber this visit for seven days. First time. First for the hotel room, ok room but for a kimpton need to step it up. Plus we had booked a 485 sq foot room according to Orbitz and were in a room half the size. Received a message would be taken care of and never heard from anyone. Second great beach service from Teodora. She consistently ensured our drinks were full and had food if we wanted. Walking around always, friendly and no pressure. She was one of the bright spots of the stay. Props as well to the Social Club bartending and wait staff, friendly and on their game. Also the chef, although we had mostly snacks, game was on!!! what a surprise, well done and props from a foodie. Five stars Third not so much praise for the high tide outside bar staff. Not welcoming, sat for almost ten minutes even to be acknowledged to order a drink, and twenty minutes before happy hour was ending already calling last call. It wasn’t busy there maybe 10 people at the bar. Zero stars. Fourth nice touch on the daily wine hour at four. Fifth, this place could be so much more and rival hotels like the SLS. Their pool area, surrounding cabanas and beach area next to the pool under marketed. please let me advise you to transform this space. Overall some bright spots, but needs work and step It up in the south beach Collins Avenue market Read less

I was there with two of my girlfriends. The beach is very close to the hotel so we just walked for like 2 minutes to get the water. The pool was also super nice. You get two chairs per room at the beach the other one costs like 17$/day which is alright but the chairs at the pool were free for all of us. The personal at the pool were wonderful,… Read more

The personal at the pool were wonderful, especially Claudette. She is the girl you should go to if you want ideas of where to go in Miami. She made our trip even better! The breakfast at the hotel was very nice, not cheap (but nothing in south beach is), and the service at the hotel was terrific!! Read less

Wonderful staff, gorgeous pool and private beach. An amazing getaway to escape the daily grind. First class treatment all the way. Location ideal for walking and viewing what south beach is all about. Beauty, music and relaxing.
