I stayed here for 3 nights end of Aug for a short break. Visited my ill mom in Raleigh, then hooked up with some friends here before heading back to London. I chose the right place. Location is great, pool to beach really handy and got lucky with the weather esp since this was after Isaac! The little touches make it for me ex. the free wine hour, 2for1 Moday cocktails, magazines, sun cream, flavoured water, fruit platters by the pool - all free. The room by US standards is small but I didn't mind this as London and Europe expensive hotels are even smaller. Staff were great except for 1 by the pool who was a bit doh everytime you asked him something, he always says "dunno". Then a curt female Receptionist who literally cuts you off as if you bothered her. I liked the Asian restarurant (funny they served Amerrican breakfast though!)and all the bartenders will have a laugh and a joke with you. Plenty bars and restaurants nearby so we had dinner out every night. Watch out for the 18% gratuity on top of everything and the drinks (if not happy hour) are quite dear $14-$18 for a small frozen margarita! But hey, there's a store across the road and I would say 90% of guests did not order drinks by the pool. A really nice hotel, would recommend it. We are back in South beach in Feb 2013 and I have been googling other hotels but guess what, Surfcomber still comes up best value for money for the location, service and over-all stay!
