Westgate South Beach Oceanfront Resort
Ranked #137 of 212 Hotels in Miami Beach
Reviewed 14 October 2011

This is a nice condo hotel right on the beach. This is a small hotel with great service. You can rent chairs and umbrellas from the hotel at the beach or buy a sandwich or drink. They also have a small store where you can buy just about anything you need to eat or enjoy the beach more. They were doing construction on the hotel while we were there, but it didn't bother us much as we were on the beach enjoying the sun and waves. There is a boardwalk that runs all the way down to the heart of South Beach past many stores and places to eat. While the Hotel does not have its own parking, there is a public parking lot right next to the hotel.

We stayed here for a week with extended family ranging in ages from 9 months to grandma in december 2010 and had a great time....we are westgate owners of Planet Hollywood Las Vegas, so we wanted to check out this property, and really enjoyed it....this is the perfect place for a family with its on-site playground, volleyball, pool, daily family activites, and even a convenience store...a few steps away is the boardwalk and beautiful clean beach....granted, there are some older shady looking apartments (occupied and vacant) nearby, the hotel itself was clean and comfortable, even though it is not new, its kept up well, and the staff is helpful and friendly....you can walk to stores and other hotels and restaurants via the boardwalk or street....the area was under construction at that time, and apparently undergoing improvements, so the future looks good for the area....we would consider staying here again even though we spent alot of time south of here on Lincoln Rd, Ocean Drive, Espanola way, and a few trips into Miami....cab fare to Lincoln Rd was about $12.00 each way and Ocean Drive about $15.00 each way, so it does add up....not many restaurants close to the hotel, so we took advantage of the on-site convenience store which had excellent baked goods, sandwiches, and purchased goods to cook in the room sometimes....great experience overall, and recommend staying here, especially with children....

Room Tip: we were poolside, next time would like ocean view, either way its not a noisey place....

A very nice, well maintained and upgraded resort. It has the art deco character that we really liked. It is right on the beach and short walk ( 5 minutes) down the wooden boardwalk you can enjoy a drink and a meal and watch the world go by. You can also walk down to Ocean Blvd and enjoy the many shops and restaurants.
The one bedroom with a kitchen we had was very spacious. The grounds and pool were very well maintained. They had barbecues, and a volleyball court as well. The resort was quiet. The only disadvantage we could find is that parking in the lot next doorwas not guaranteed even though you paid $10 a day. On Saturdays and Sundays it was impossible to get parking until after 8:00pm as many people from Miami came down to use the beach. It is a very beautiful and groomed beach,

Room Tip: We were on the ground level so we did get traffic noise on Sat and Sundays. I would choose a room on...

I want to start off by saying that everyone that works at the Westgate in south beach was very friendly and helpful. At check in I was greeted by a beautiful young lady named Daniela which she took us to the room and showed us how everything works and where everything was. The property was very clean and well kept. The next day we spoke to the friendliest and most helpful man in the world “ Gary ”. During our whole stay Gary came up to us asking us how we were doing and if we needed anything making us feel right at home. Every time we went by the front desk a young fellow with glasses, i dont remember his name would put a smile on our face, he has a wonderful personality. The best part of all was the beach; it’s directly behind the resort, two steps on the board walk and your there. The pool was heated, the room was big and it had it all except washer and dryer but they did have the Jacuzzi in your room that was a plus. All I know is that I’m hooked for life to this beautiful resort

The personal attention we received was excellent. All members of the administration and staff were friendly. We are especially thankful to the personal in charge of the activities, they when out of their way to ensure that our children were having a good time. The BBQ was delicious and FREE. Gracias, see you next summer.

We stayed here 17 June 2011 for 1 wk,after a long flight from the UK we were faced with an un pleasant member of staff,no greeting ,just `are you checking in`,natually afer just being dropped off by shuttle and 2 cases in tow! We took the advise of a previous comment and asked for a top floor room.The room itself was clean,spacious and comfortable.The hotel has a shop attached the young chap that was often on duty did not have a care in the world,asking if they had any teabags in stock was such a chore for him,take your own is my advise! Be advised that the nearest decent restaurant is a good 20min walk from hotel,but the buses run frequently and drop you off near hotel,this we found out by ourselves as hotel staff were clueless on public transport.Nearest place for a lovely bar is up the board walk to Edan Roc,a lovely hotel,superb location,happy hr 4-6,this also a good 15min walk. Lincoln Road 30min walk,Ocean Drive 1 hr walk.
Westgate is a timeshare resort and you are going to be pestered with their options,just say no thanks! Overall we got what we expected,and enjoyed the experience, and no we will not be back.

Room Tip: Ask for top floor.

Our mission is not only to meet your expectations but to exceed them. It seems that we fail to do so with you and your companion, and I sincerely apologize. I want to thank you for bringing to our attention the poor greeting you experienced. It will definitely be addressed in our next staff meeting, and it’s a great tool for training purposes. We’re constantly trying to improve, and honest feed back, such as yours, will certainly make us a better team.

In addition, we truly appreciate your review about our rooms, as our housekeeping staff worked very hard to maintain our rooms up to par with comfortableness, and cleanliness. If you decide to visit us again, I’ll like nothing better than to have the opportunity to make your stay a memorable one.

We've been owners since 2002. This year we tried this smaller location in May with the family for a full week. It is literally on the beach!!! We walked to the beach every morning. The resort is conveniently located within walking distance to restaurants. The rooms are ample and comfortable. The boys at front desk were knowledgeable, helpful and friendly round the clock. We will return next summer satisfied.
