“Great chillout bar, drinks and best attention”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013

I did not stay in the hotel. I just went to visit it and have a drink at the bar, so this review refers specifically to the bar. The place is very nicely decorated, in an open place, refreshened by sea breeze (like many other bars in this area). The drinks were pricey but worth the value, as they were well prepared. The attention was awesome, special compliments to our hostess Jordan who was really nice and friendly, and that sure makes a difference in a bar like this in a place like South Beach. The giant rubber duck was nice too ;)

All in all, a must visit. My impressions: it seems good for before-party drinks with friends, good for a date, good for just going to meet people.

I've had the good fortune to stay at several of Miami's top hotels and I have to say that the SLS is my new favorite. The design is fresh, beautiful and inspiring. The service was TOP notch. Who cares if the rooms are on the "small" side… they are lovely, comfortable and spacious enough.

My husband and I had dinner at Katsuya, which was delish. And Hyde Beach provides for some amazing people watching. Also, I loved my blow-out from the salon at the SLS, Prive.

If you want to have a true "Sobe" experience, book your room at the SLS.

The SLS is the place you want to stay in Miami. We ate at Katsuya and spent the rest of the evening at Hyde Park. Drinks are crazy expensive, but it's miami. Service was excellent from check in to check out. My only complaint, and I realize it is a restored hotel, is that the rooms are super small. It was just two of us in the room and there was barely enough space for our luggage. Other than that, no complaints. Love the design, beds were comfortable and shower was hot with great water pressure. Would definitely stay there again - perhaps just splurging for a larger room!

From the time you walk in till you leave, SLS makes you feel you are worth A Million Dollars. The pool in the back is perfect for daytime drinks, and the waitresses are a pleasure on the eyes. The appetizers are amazing!! My second time staying here for multiple days.

Fabulous guest services and great vibe. Enjoy serious people watching and whtever you do, be sure to look good in skinny jeans! Love the staff. Obviously this is well-managed bc everyone feels like a rock star. Be on your Saturday night best and be sure to smile bc you will be seen!

The rooms fall short of fabulous but the shower more than made up for the shoebox feel! Can't wait to return!

Thank you for taking the time to review SLS Hotel South Beach, your kind words are greatly appreciated. I agree with you in regards to the small rooms, we are not known for having the biggest rooms on the beach. With that being said we do offers villas that have significantly more room, which I am sure would be to your liking on your next trip. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back to SLS in the near future.

The restaurant and the pool are just perfect for relaxing and enjoying and the beach is a minute away.

Five star service, great experience. All restaurants are amazing and completely different which means you don't even need to go out to have an incredible meal.
Rooms are modern and very nice (loved the showers). Great for couples or family it adapts very well to both. Like I said the service to guests its above and beyond they even put a christmas tree in my room as a courtesy because my 3 yr old was worried santa wasn't going to leave her presents. Great pool great beach.
