We usually stay at The Betsy or Z Ocean when we stay in Miami. But because it was last minute, we stayed at Dream South Beach for the price. Let me be clear, it wasn't BAD, but it was not what we're used to. First the good....we checked in immediately, the bed was super comfortable, the room was nicely decorated, location was great! Now the bad....the room was tiny, no storage, bathroom tiny, they charge you $75 per day for "incidentals" which is automatically charged when you check in, resort fee does not include beach umbrella (only towels and chairs) and there was this GOD AWFUL stench whenever you entered the hotel (2nd building). But as I said, it was nothing really to write home about. It really was....just...ok! There was definitely nothing that would make us stay there again!

I really loved this hotel. I stayed here for one night when meeting family in the area. I was able to extend my stay for an additional night without problem.

The staff was friendly and helpful.

The roofside pool is great, the rooms are really comfortable and have a lot of fun lighting features. All the fun of South Beach is right outside the door. There is a porch outside with comfortable lounge chairs.

The food was ok for breakfast, but not anything super special.

I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because one of the lights in my room was broken and no one came up and fixed it, but this is really a 4 3/4 star review!

Hi, we stayed there for 1 week early May.
Place is very clean, smart decoration and very helpfull and friendly staff.
Rooms are rather small although we had a junior suite but we weren't there to stay inside so it didn't bother that much.
the 2 only negative point were 1. the noise of the ventilation outside our window on the first floor. was it the hotel's ventilator or the opposite neighbour I haven't checked but it was quite noisy at night and 2. the fact that we paid 260usd per room per night and that no breakfast was included... this should maybe be revised in the future

Otherwise, Location is perfect and very close to the main activities at South-Beach within walkingdistance. Fantastic rooftop pool and bar.
A recomended place to stay for those enjoying the night-life on SOuth-Beach

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the Dream Hotel and we couldn't have been more pleased!! We upgraded to a little bigger of a room to ensure more space and privacy- and that's exactly what we got! Upon arrival we were pleasantly greeted with a nice glass of Prosecco and escorted to our room, which was a corner room on the 3rd floor. The room was on the small side but perfect for us, super intimate and modern! We ate at the restaurant naked taco almost everyday, every thing was amazing, perfect for a little snack during the day!! The bartenders also served us the best drinks we had in all of south beach! The beach chairs were also super convenient! The rooftop pool was small but also very nice. I would recommend this hotel to any young couples! I looked forward to the turndown service every night when the maids brought chocolate and water bottles. Thanks for the great service!

I was so happy with our 5 night stay at the Dream in SoBe. Upon arrival we were greeted by the bell boy he was very polite and accommodating. After checking in early we were allowed to leave our luggage in the hotel and come back to a nice and clean room on the 3rd floor with a view of the street and partly of the beach. When booking the hotel we let them know this was our honeymoon and when we came back to our room after a nice morning at the beach we found a bottle of Champagne compliments of the hotel with a nice card signed by the concierge. Our stay was great and the hotel was very helpful with any requests we had. The cleaning service was always done early in the morning so we had fresh towels daily and a nice clean made room. We had a very relaxing and comfortable stay, the room was clean and modern looking I know people have complained about the size and the lighting but we had NO issues with that to me it was part of the sexiness of the hotel.

Room Tip: Choose the upper levels as the noise from the streets is inevitable since the hotel is located in a...

Excellent and close to everything, very modern and trendy. The service was great and only one block from the beach, friendly service, we would definitely stay here again given the chance. The price was quite reasonable given that everything else was a lot more expensive
