Dream South Beach is an excellent property with high quality service and very nice features. The pool up on the 4th floor with High Bar is definitely the best part of the hotel. Naked Taco is also a great restaurant on the ground floor which you can order food from at the pool and room as well. Everyone from the front desk attendant to the bartender was very helpful and made the stay a quality experience. The rooms are nice and chic, but do have a little bit of a funky layout, designer types probably would find it aesthetically pleasing while I found it a little strange but not really a big deal. The only real problem with the property is the elevators which are slower than slow, but being only a few floors I mostly just opted to use the stairs. Overall I had an enjoyable experience and would definitely stay again. While Dream may be a little more expensive than an average hotel in south beach, I would say it is well worth it.

High quality service is definitely what we are all about here at Dream, and it is great to hear that you had such a great stay! It sounds like you both got to fully enjoy our awesome rooftop pool and Highbar, which is the perfect way to enjoy yourself in true South Beach style. Thanks for staying with us, and we hope you will come back and visit us again soon!

Great location. BEACH: On google maps it looks a bit far from the beach but it's only a minute walk which is what I wanted. Staying right on the beach was expensive so Dream was a good compromise. Dream guests get free towels and chairs but have to pay $15/day for umbrellas, so we purchased an umbrella at Walgreens for $18 to use during our 5 day stay. We went to the beach 4 times during our stay so the purchase was worth it. We left the umbrella there upon check out.

AMENITIES: The hotel is close to everything - Walgreens, liquor store, restaurants.

CLUBS: 5 minute walk to mansion, $15 can ride to LIV, 10 minute walk to Story.

SERVICE: Staff were friendly from the front desk to the Naked Taco staff. On the first day our blinds were broken and when we got back from the beach, they were fixed. Amazing! Since this is only a 4 story hotel, anything you request (soap, shampoo, etc) is brought to your room quickly.

OTHER: no ice machine, however call down and they will bring it directly to your room and as mentioned earlier, it will be fast.

NOISE: Many have written that the noise is a problem but we slept through it all. The only noise we heard was from the street and the hallway and thankfully we couldn't what was going on in other people's
rooms.

Overall fantastic stay for the price!

This is my 3rd Dream property that I have stayed at. Two in NYC and this one in Miami. Guest Services in NYC, shout out to Vaughn who contacted Alejandro in Miami. He made our stay extra special.
Must say the Dream goes out of their way to take care of repeat customers. We will be back.

Just leaving Dream today and overall had a great time. The $75 a night extra fee when you check in is excessive and not stated anywhere on their website. The extra fee kind of messed up my vacation but besides that the hotel is fine. Rooms are small and dark, no microwave, small minibar and pool is way smaller than in their pictures. Next time I'll probable stay right in Ocean dr. Good luck!

Dear Guest,

It is great to hear that you had a great time while staying with us! We would like to clarify that the $75 authorization we take for each day of your stay is to allow our guests the ability to charge things to their room account with ease. This authorization allows you enjoy drinks at our awesome rooftop, or delicious food at Naked Taco and charge it to your room without having to worry about carrying cash or paying right then with credit cards.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us, and we hope that you will come back and visit us again soon!

Nice rooms, the reviews said rooms were small but I found my room to be comfortable. EXCELLENT EXCELLENT SERVICE. .. great location. Parking is not the best but no where in south beach is... I love this place, I will definitely stay again and I suggest you do too!

Room Tip: Try not to get a first floor room. Bring a small cooler mini bar is expensive.

Loved rooftop pool. Dj at night on the weekend & music played during day, Cool vibe. The restaurant Naked Taco was great. Good mexican food. The hotel is 1 block from beach. Great location. However rooms are dim. Lighting is a bit complex & cannot get really bright. So getting myself together to be on my Miami best was not an easy task. No full length mirror. I won't stay here again because of this.

Dear Guest,

It is very nice to hear that you were able to enjoy our awesome rooftop and enjoy some great food at Naked Taco! I am sorry that you had some difficulty with the lighting design and lack of a full-length mirror when you were getting ready. For your next stay, and for the benefit of future guests reading this, the hotel does offer full-length mirrors upon request and our friendly staff can deliver to your room.

We hope that you will come back and visit us again for your next trip to South Beach, so until then, safe travels!

Pro's: This hotel was very nice and quite fancy. The room was impressive with dimmed lighting and a modern look. It was very romantic yet fun and very 'Miami'. Service was great, they really went the extra step to make sure you had a good time. very clos to the beach and the resto at the hotel 'Naked Taco' was delish! Very nice waiters too. Rooftop terasse was very cool. Free WiFi.

Con's: The valet parking was reallly expensive so we parked two blocks down at the municipal parking building (1$/hour) as opposed to 37$ for the day. Although the room was very nice, it was VERY small. You could only be 1 person at a time in the bathroom and we had to jump over our luggage to get around the room. Full awesome bar in room that is nice to ....look... at ;)

All this being said, I'm not totally sure I would go back to this hotel since there are many hotels around there that are probably just as cool and might have a little more space. However it was a good experience and I would recomend it.
