We recently spent 8 nights at the Surfcomber for a business conference I had to attend in town and an event taking place at the hotel over the weekend. Overall, the stay was very nice. The hotel is nicely updated and appointed, and the vibe is very 'South Beach' yet friendly and welcoming. The front desk staff was very helpful throughout our stay, including arranging for early check in and assisting with various needs including housekeeping service, a change of pillows from feather to hypoallergenic, valet service, and minibar service. We appreciate that the hotel is pet-friendly, as we never travel without our beloved, little Yorkie princess, and she was welcomed and complimented by all staff she met during our stay. We also enjoyed our room decor and the contemporary touches like the glass-enclosed shower and vessel sink. The bathroom felt a bit small to us, but this is easily excused as we're used to a palatial batroom at home! Sleep quailty was quite good with a comfortable bed and pillows, however racous guests in the halls shouted at all hours of the night and we were frequently jolted awake by party-goers from Thursday through Monday. Again, not the fault of the hotel and it is to be expected anywhere on South Beach. The evening wine reception was a nice touch, as well. Finally, the hotel handled the weekend event we attended with grace and poise, as they were at capacity and were hosting many extra visitors at the pool parties.
The only opportunity for improvement I recommend would be offering at least a few vegetarian-friendly menu options for the hotel restaurant and room service. Breakfast was fine, but as for lunch and dinner, then only non-meat option was a tofu and veggie stir fry that featured oyster sauce, which is not appropriate for true vegetarians like us. We would have enjoyed the opportunity to eat and drink at the hotel from time to time during our long stay, but as they did not offer suitable food, we had to go elsewhere.
