"Super place to soak up sunshine;)"
This is an exceptional value. The location is within walking distance to everything I need or want: beach, Boardwalk, restaurants, parks. For someone with OCD, I find it an acceptable and pleasant environment, which says much about its cleanliness. This was my third visit, and I have been just as pleased.

"A Clean Hotel But Clean up an Attitude!"
Very nice updated hotel, especially the pool and out doors / beach area. Our luggage took a little longer to get to our room but we appreciated the the politeness of the delivery person. Only one small concern…..Cleaning person showed up at 11:50am while we were still packing and indicated to my wife we should be out of the room. My wife politely pointed out to her that our watches and the hotel clock showed 10 minutes before checkout. Neither one of us liked her attitude and felt she was trying to rush in to clean the rooms.

"not so hot. but loved the pool"
We had two rooms When we arrived we were checked into a dirty room Then once again . My kids found hair and dirty towels in the second room and dirty pillows By midnight they changed their room for a third time. that one was ok. They refunded us for that night on that room. But what a Hassel. In our room the shower dripped, the toilet ran, and our pillows were dirty. They promised three timez to bring clean pillows. That never happened. We got sick of asking them Positives Nice clean pool Decent food Excellent complimentary breakfast. It was sometimes hard communicating with the staff due to poor English. I feel the pillows need protectors as well as cases. Not just cases. To avoid people sweating through them. I suggested that.

"Pleasantly Surprised"
I had once stayed at South Seas back in 2007. It was just an okay experience then. I went back because it was strategically placed right by the beach and yet not too far from places. My advice for guests is don't be rude to the receptionist. I got there way too early (@ 7 am) and was hoping that I could check in early. The guy looked annoyed and had made me wait almost an hour before I was even attended to (he was the only guy that morning and there were other guests). As soon as he called me up, he gave me a key and checked me in! That fast. The best part was that he gave me a corner room and it was extremely spacious. You're right there, steps away, from the beach as soon as you pass the pool. If you're a runner, you'll love the run/jog/walk pathway between the hotel and the beach. It's away from the bars of Ocean Drive but not too far if you want to chill at the bars. Will I return? Why not. Hope this helps future guests contemplating. Cons: not so helpful staff, parking is horrible (not to mention valet parking charge $29).

Beautiful area, perfect for a walk to lincoln road mall, the beach, or a 15minute walk to ocean drive where the real fun lies. The rooms are not the best nor is the television and the elevators are small. Service is great friendly staff throughout the hotel. Location is definitely the best thing about this hotel!

"Just the right size..."
I've stayed at this hotel several times over the years and remain satisfied. Guests are mostly Europeans or South Americans, staff speaks Spanish. Great location a block from Lincoln Road, has nice clean pool area with reasonably priced food and drinks available in a shaded eating area or served poolside; the pool is next to a hammock area that fronts right on the beach. Although the front desk warns you, first floor can be a bit noisy in the morning after breakfast starts if other guests have big mouths running down the hall...

"GENERAL OVERVIEW"
THE HOTEL IS DATED SO THINGS LIKE DAMP SHEETS FROM HUMIDITY IS TO BE EXPECTED. CLEANLINESS IS LIMITED BY THE AGE OF THE FACILITY. SHEETS HAD A STAIN ON THEM, NOT DIRTY BUT STAINED. A COUPLE OF TOWELS AND EVEN A DINNER NAPKIN ALSO STAINED. NOTHING CRAZY BUT STILL NOT FOR PUBLIC USE. SHOULD HAVE BEEN THROWN AWAY. THE CAFE/BAR AREA WAS GOOD AND COMFORTABLE. THE FOOD (PIZZA AND SALAD)WAS TASTY. THE FREE BREAKFAST WAS AN OK FILLER. SCRAMBLED EGGS, INEDIBLE SAUSAGE, HOME FRIES OK, TOAST AND OATMEAL AVAILABLE. OJ AND TEA/COFFEE. BUFFET STYLE SO FOOD CAN SUFFER A LITTLE FROM THAT. FREE SO NOT SO BAD. THE BUFFET UPSTAIRS IN THE RESTAURANT IS $26. WAY TOO MANY OTHER PLACES FOR HALF THE MONEY. DO NOT GET THE PINA COLADA. NO ALCOHOL. AT LEAST THE HAPPY HOUR VERSION. STICK WITH THE $6 BEERS. THE POOL AND THE GROUNDS OUT BACK WERE VERY NICE AND COMFORTABLE. BEACH CHAIRS AND UMBRELLA WILL COST YOU $30 PER DAY. AND CASH! CHAIRS SHOULD BE FREE. THE LOCATION IS PERFECT FOR RESTAURANTS AND SHOPPING. EXCEPT FOR THE STAFF AT CHECK IN, ONE GENTLEMAN AT THE POOL AREA AND ONE GIRL AT THE BAR, THE REST OF THE STAFF COULDN'T HAVE CARED LESS IF YOU WERE A GUEST. NOT FRIENDLY, NOT CONCERENED WITH CUSTOMER SERVICE. THE PLACE IS GOOD FOR $150 PER NIGHT. NEVER SHOULD IT BE MORE.

"Lovely Hotel"
This hotel was amazing! By far the best hotel my family and I have ever stayed at. It was very clean and the hotel staff was so friendly! The hotel is so close to the beach, has a beautiful view, and has a very nice pool. The hotel even serves a continental breakfast in the morning. It is right on the street of many shops which is very convenient. It also is very close to a variety of different restaurants that were great. We loved it so much there, we decided to come back again! I highly recommend this to everyone. South Seas is an ideal hotel.

Definitely outdated butthe staff was super friendly. Our room looked into the hotel next door and always felt dark. Hated that! Felt like we were in a prison cell. The food and drinks were overpriced but the location you cant beat. It's in a perfect spot on the boardwalk. Quieter and safer area that was super close to the beach. Overall a nice place, just wished I could have seen daylight from my window. Front desk ladies were so nice!!!

"Nice Miami Beach art deco boutique hotel"
Liked the location. We rented a car and the valet staff was very helpful with that service. The back of the hotel is the best with the lovely pool and bar staff and hammocks and even the very entertaining Iguana's. There is a locked gate with a code that goes straight out to the beach & a "brick" boardwalk where we enjoyed renting bikes and riding this walk for miles. The room was clean but furniture & curtains little old and the a/c was having to work the whole time - rather warm during the day. The continental breakfast was very good each morning and the bar staff made excellent drinks.

Leak in our room ceiling, faucet dripping, dirty room, windows to room next to us was boarded up. The hotel manager didn't do anything to accommodate our stay.

"We will back ... can't wait!"
We loved South Seas and look forward to going back. The hotel is typical Art Deco and is older but very clean. The hotel pool and beach access are great. The Staff is very helpful. The breakfast is rather plain but adequate. Their are many options to choose other eating locations. Parking with tip is $30 but parking in South Beach is hard to find. The bed were very comfortable and the in-house bar was a great place to gather. Can't wait to return!

"On the Beach"
This is an older hotel. The rooms are clean but need some upgrading. The free breakfast is good and the lunch menu is tasty. the reason I selected this hotel was because it was directly on the beach. IF you are not going to stay in the room that much this is a good place to be. It is in walking distance to Lincoln Ave. which is a pedestrian walkway with many restaurants and shops. Overall a descent place to stay.

I chose this hotel based on the pictures & description of it's lovely beach side courtyard. That's where the charm of this place ends. The facilities were shotty at best, the amenities were non-existent (not even a working ice machine) and it was incredibly noisy our entire stay.

This was our second visit to this lovely hotel, and we will surely be back! It's quaint and comfortable, with a very 50's-60's charming atmosphere. Our favorite spot is the garden of hammocks between the hotel pool and the beach, where you can lounge and sway to your heart's content.

"Two day stopover in Miami"
After 3 weeks in Cuba the South Seas was an island of delight. The pool and beach acces is wonderfully, even the restaurant was good. The front desk staff was fantastically welcoming, and helpful. The rooms were clean and well appointed. A little refreshing of the hallways would make first impressions better (dark carpeting, service carts in halls 24/7.industrial at best) We enjoyed our stay, and it's a close walk to Joe's Stone Crab RestUrants! Yummmm, don't miss it. Only open November to May...

"Don't be fooled by the pictures..."
We expected so much better. Upon arrival, everything was fine, except that the hotel really needs a renovation. In fact, we'd booked in a better hotel but the hotel didn't have complimentary breakfast. So we cancelled and reserved with the South Seas instead. The breakfast was TERRIBLE. The eggs were terrible, potatoes weren't cooked properly and the sausage was just plain uneatable... It smelled bad and looked even worse... But that's not the worst... They had the SAME BREAKFAST EVERYDAY. We stayed for ten days, after a week we'd go to IHOP for breakfast. The surcharge for the parking was 29$ a day, which we found very expensive. The staff was okay, unprofessional at times, but would always provide us with what we needed and were always nice. Although very disappointing, the rooms were clean and the cleaning staff were exceptionally nice. The hotel smelled bad, which they attempted to cover up with some perfume at the entrance of the hotel...

Overall we had a good experience. The only negative points are: -breakfast: very cheap -rooms: the carpets are smelly. I understand that this is an old hotel and it is trying to keep the spirit of art deco alive but the smell of the carpet is terrible. We had to buy a scented candle to kill the unpleasant odor.

"Rough around the edges!"
Rooms are clean but very rough at the edges. Years and years of paint over old paint, dinged doors and door frames. It felt more like a youth hostel. Our room at the front on Collins was VERY noisy from the music across the street to the trash dumpster being hauled away @ 6am. The noise criticism is not directed at the hotel rather a message NOT to take a front room.
