“Very nice boutique hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

Very nice hotel. Expensive for the limited time we were actually in the room, but it was nice and the food at Front Porch Cafe is good and priced well. I would stay at the Z-Ocean again. It was a sexy hotel.

Good Afternoon Letitia T,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on the Z Ocean! We would love to see you back at the hotel to enjoy another stay at the "sexy hotel". Front Porch Cafe breakfast is one of the best in South Beach. We are glad you were able to experience it!

Warm Regards,

My husband and I stayed here last week for three nights in one of the penthouse suites for our honeymoon, and I could not have been more satisified with our stay!  Check in was quick and easy, we were given a glass of champagne afterwards and two free drinks from the bar. Both bartenders were wonderful, very friendly!   The room was perfect! It was clean, spacious, cool, & comfortable. It had a nice well stocked wet bar, though we resisted and bought our own drinks. There were three refrigerators in the suite (2 inside and 1 on the rooftop terrace), but they didn't keep our drinks very cold, just cool enough. The bed was like a small piece of heaven! It was so comfortable, I could've slept my entire stay away! There was some construction on directly in front od the hotel, but it didn't bother us a bit-the room was very sound proof! The shower was also amazing, with one rainfall shower head, a standard shower head, and four jets on the wall! (Complete with a spot to sit, which was nice) Although we paid for a city view, we had a partial view of the ocean. The rooftop was great! Very private- with curtains to pull if necessary and a retractable awning to keep it a little cooler (it was 90° for our entire 4 days there, so that helped). The hot tub was very relaxing, and the gentleman who cleans and refills it was there every time within minutes of calling; entering through a tall back gate. He was also very nice. The pool looked very welcoming, but we never got a chance to swim in it. The hotel's location was perfect, we walked 2 or 3 blocks to Lincoln Avenue every night for dinner, lots to choose from all around though. The beach, right across rhe the street was beautiful! The beach service at boucher brothers was perfect! All in all the Z Ocean is wonderful! The staff was all very polite and very professional! We can't wait to come back; we're actually planning on it for next year already!

We stayed in the spa suite, it was great to have your own spa & privacy! Room size was fantastic, the bathroom had a great layout & loved our own Nespresso coffee machine in our room! Staff were great & really helpful Thanks to Fiorella at the front desk, very helpful with all local info & pleasant to just chat with! Highly recommend this hotel, location is great & has sun beds & umbrella on the beach all included in the price of the room!

So we stayed here because my husband get holiday inn points, the service is amazing and we got upgraded to the pent house suite which had a fantastic view it's own rooftop patio and hot tub, simply stunning. Service was impeccable but very pricey place we ordered breakfast that cost us $65 because we had a flight , but there is a Starbucks and beach access right behind the hotel Also be sure and visit cabana 14 included with your stay is a free umbrella and 2 chairs with a towel which was a nice surprise since it was such a hot day! Overall amazing place next time Starbucks for breakfast!

Room Tip: Ocean views need a higher room

I am a Platinum member with their rewards program and I always receive fantastic customer service. Love coming to this property for its discreet and quite location yet easy access to all the action in Ocean Drive. Close to it all , comfortable, and just feels roomy for it being a South beach property. Keep up the detailed good work!

This past July made our second trip in two years to Miami, and both times we stayed at the Z Ocean on South Beach. The location is perfection, the rooms are big and comfortable. The shower I want to replicate in my house as it is the best shower I have ever had in my life. This hotel is in walking distance of any and everywhere you could possibly want to go, and if you would prefer to bike it, then there are bike rentals directly across the street. I can't imagine staying anywhere else when I visit South Beach. The only reason it did not receive 5 stars is because it does have a tendency to get a little warm in the room at night.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the side of Ocean Drive vs. Collins, as Collins side tends to be very loud.

Whenever I'm in Miami I try to stay @ the Z Ocean because it's trendy enough but yet boutique in it's size. The service is always wonderful and the staff is extremely friendly. It's close to everything "South Beach" and has some amazing rooftop balconies with your own private jacuzzi. If your ever in south beach and looking for clean, inviting spot to stay, I'd try here first.
