I was very lucky to select this hotel which was totally unknown to me. I was spending a lot of time in the pool - I believe that it is the best I've ever seen - feeling that I was spending my vacation in Caribbean. In MiamI during the day time there is not much to do so it's very...

The Setai is without a doubt the most luxurious hotel in Miami Beach. The property is stunning and immaculately kept. We spent most of our time luxuriating by the pool sipping Setai Coladas. The pool and beach attendants were fantastic. They couldn’t have been more attentive. After walking down the beach, I can say that the Setai has the nicest...

The room was beautifully appointed. The breakfast buffet in the morning was second to none in our travels. The person that made this dining experience so wonderful...

I recently had the pleasure of a 4 night stay at the Setai in South Beach. Service was stupendous. The amount of staff at this property is astounding and all with smiles and a willingness to please. Rooms were well appointed and spacious. Easy beach access and beautiful pool area.

I had to call the manager because the cleaning lady was in my room and she locked the door. I had the baby I was taking care of with me and asked her to unlock. Her response was ''when I finish the cleaning '' !!!

My wife recently returned from a long weekend at The Setai. We have stayed at many hotels in South Beach and The Setai is a mixture of the best of each. It is a beautiful hotel decorated in a very nice style. The rooms are very nice and the pool is great. The best part about The Setai is that...

This is our second visit to The Setai and it's the same incredible service. This hotel is a real treat to escape to for anyone. From the moment you walk in the door you can forget the rest of the world. The restaurant at the pool had fresh octopus that was Mediterranean quality. We hope to always get a chance...
