Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent location just one and a half blocks from Lincoln Road restaurants and bars. Rooms were clean, and have firm comfortable mattresses and excellent pillows. Low rise building, so rooms do not have views. Medium size boutique hotel, excellent food, friendly bar. Rear of property lets out onto the beach. Free Internet if you sign up for the free Kimpton hotel loyalty program. Internet station in lobby for online checkin and to print boarding passes. I will be sure to return here on my next visit to Miami Beach.

I would like to thank the entire staff of the Hotel, front desk, valet, house keeping, etc. Service was very professional and detailed. David Trujillo checked us in and recognized my voice (assuming) from a previous phone call. David was very informative and went above and beyond to welcome us to the property. I especially enjoyed the valet staff. The amenities were perfect and so was the room. I will definitely recommend this property to anyone!

It sounds like there is some special "David Club" on property here that I don't know about...Very happy to hear you had a 'perfect weekend' and all departments help made your stay amazing. Be sure to come back soon!

We stayed for two nights in June 2014, in an Oceanfront King Balcony room. The room was quite small, particularly the bathroom which was really small and tight with not much bench space. The balcony however was really big, sunny and fantastic! Worth the extra spend!

The air con in the room was hard to get right - seemed to blast out freezing cold air regardless of the setting, so we kept turning it on and off.

The bed was comfy and everything else in the room was fine.

The common areas in the hotel were gorgeous and luxurious, and there's lots of perks (coffee in mornings, wine hour in the evenings). Big pool, right on the beach, nice staff.

The location is their top selling point. Close to shops, restaurants, beach etc and easy to get a taxi anywhere.

We had a nice stay and would stay here again for the location and balcony.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with the TripAdvisor community. We are happy to hear you had a great stay. We will be sure to take a look at the A/C unit to make sure that everything is functioning correctly.It was a smart choice booking a balcony room; they are the best. Nothing is better than catching some early morning fresh air seeing the sunrise! We can't wait to welcome you back!

If you are looking for outstanding service with great vibe, beautiful decoration and superb location when holidaying in Miami South Beach the Surfcomber is the place to stay! I spent 7 nights with my mum and sister end of June and the staff made us feel like we owned the place, so welcoming and ready to please. Just 5 minutes walt to the popular shopping strip Lincoln Rd and right at the beach we had it all. Also a great place to watch the world cup soccer games either in the lounge or the pool with the huge screen and awesome crowd. I would definitely recommend this hotel particularly if you are travelling solo, with friends, or a partner.

Decided to stay here because of great location and relatively reasonable price for Miami beach.

Pros: central location within walking distance to ocean dr, Lincoln ave shopping and other attractions. Loved the beach front location, the pool is nice. Hotel rooms are ok nothing special but everything you need. Happy hour for hotel guests was nice from 5-6 every day. We also liked the free bikes to tour around the beach on.

Cons: mandatory 20 dollar per day fee that supposedly includes a bunch of stuff that should come w staying at the hotel anyways but it's extra including chairs on the beach. Only umbrella is not included and it's additional 19 per day...good luck going out there wo an umbrella in Miami heat so it's a total money grab. Water pressure in the shower was non existent...I mean in afternoon it was barely dripping. The restaurant includes a 19% tip automatically on every bill so there is absolutely no incentive for good service. In addition to that the "free" continental breakfast rules changed every day we ate there: one day u could only get a muffin next day you had a choice to get a croissant and could upgrade to a breakfast entree for extra 5 dollars, day after the upgrade Was 7 and u had to pay for ur coffee and juice even though the continental breakfast includes both. Super ridiculous. I recommend eating somewhere on ocean drive instead.

Champagnencaviar,

Thank you for taking the time share your experience with us. You are correct, the resort fee will cover two beach chairs each day. In order for us to keep the resort fee low, we choose to keep the umbrellas seperate for those who prefer the Miami Sun full strength! I apologize if there was any miscommunication as it relates to the continental breakfast upgrade which was launched during your stay. The 'b-card upgrade' will allow you to get an entree instead of the pastry/juice/coffee. We will certainly make sure we are communicating this properly in the future. Once again, thank you for the stay and sharing your feedback. We do hope you give us another chance.

Regards,

Nick

Andrea on the beach was a great server! Hotel staff super nice, especially Marlon on room service. Lovely location! Great art throughout common areas! Crispy snapper and Social burger Devine!! Beach service was consistent every day. They even had big spray at the front desk for those of us that Mosquitos love!

We come here every year right before July 4, to celebrate our anniversary. We are never disappointed. The people, the food, the drinks are all amazing. It is a low-key environment with high-end service. If there is something that you want that you don't see or have, just ask and it will be provided.
