Sea View Hotel
Ranked #3 of 5 Hotels in Bal Harbour
Reviewed 11 May 2012

I've stayed at the Sea View a good number of times. It's in good location for me on our trips to south Florida. I reviewed it, here, after a recent stay and noted that the hotel is a good one but that the mildew in the bathroom is a real problem and I would have to reconsider ever staying there again. Well, I did go to Florida again earlier this month and because of the hotel's convenience we decided to give it another go, hoping for the best. Well my wife and I were happy to see that the room was clean and fresh and had been renovated since our last stay in November of 2011. The rooms apparently no longer have a "kitchenette" and the space is now more conveniently dedicated to a place for suitcases. The room was really comfortable. The bathroom was also completely redone and now has a spacious stall shower rather than a bathtub....and the tiles are clean and new with no sign of any mildew! Overall, the hotel remains a fine place to stay and I've raised my rating because of the very positive changes that have been made.

I like this hotel,for their spacious rooms,with big closets .The staff is always very friendly, Very clean rooms and hotel.With a beautiful lobby which is well preserved.We used the beach facilities every day, the prices are reasonable, but unfortunately there are no beach umbrellas included with the chairs.
Close to south beach or aventura mall.

tcmontreal,
Thank you for your feedback as it always helps us reach higher standards for our guests. We are currently reviewing the hotel policies on added fees and hope to have that completed in the months to come. The hotel is located in a very tranquil spot situated on the best beaches Miami has to offer. We are pleased you enjoyed yourself and hope to have you back as soon as you are ready to travel again.
All the best,

The room was great, and the host at the little coffee shop was great!!!!! He provided us with excellant service. The pool was great, but since their was not a lot of people in the pool.
The staff watched my kids really closely and it was difficult to enjoy the pool. Otherwise out staff was great.

The only good thing was the location so near to Bal Harbour Shops.... Too expensive, bad service, and the rooms(and all the hotel) need to be redecorated. No valet parking at night.... When we checked in they left our luggage in the drive way for quite a long time until the bellboy appeared...
Not happy....will not return to that hotel. Okay...the room was clean and had free Internet!

Want to lay by the pool? Have to pay for the chair. Want to work out? Have to pay to use the excercise facility. Valet and self park are the same price. Rooms were older, but very clean. Very upscale mall accross the street.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the east side, you will overlook the pool and ocean!

Very helpful staff. Very nice rooms.
It was our first time in Miami and got a good deal on the resort so we stayed here.
It is about 90 blocks from south beach, an hour walk or a 20 dollar cab ride, or you could ride the s bus for 2 dollars each way all around town.
Bal harbour is the rich end of town, very nice.
Jose in the Coffee shop makes a mean breakfast and is one of the nicest guys we have met.
There are tours galore to organise from here but personally we found that you can get it cheaper on the streets.
The pool is beautiful, and backs straight onto to the beach. you can lay around on the sand or hire a deck chair for $5.35. Gym was good but had to pay $12 to use it per visit, so a nice run on the beach was a must. Overall, nice resort, nice ppl nice location.
