This is a gem. Quiet,relaxing and family friendly to boot! Got to the hotel and we were upgraded to a ocean view room, free of charge. The piano bar was simply fun. Met some lovely relaxed patrons. Would recommend if you like a quiet,low key, but classy stay. Away from hustle,loud Miami Beach.

This hotel is from another era. The music, the decor, it is like stepping back in time. However the pool is nice and the staff friendly. And it is right by the beach. Also rooms have recently been redecorated and are nice and friendly. Bay view rooms view is probably even more spectacular then sea view.

We stayed at the Sea View to attend a wedding in the area. It was a wonderful stay, the hotel is simply lovely - it is not new but the rooms are quite large. The lobby is beautiful and very elegant.

The Sea View Hotel is apparently the oldest hotel on this strip of beach in Bal Harbour, having been built in 1947. The age of the building is apparent, with some areas in need of some updating. The upside to an older hotel, however, includes larger rooms, larger pool and reduced cost compared to the newer surrounding hotels. The staff... More

The Sea View is one of the last Art Deco hotels on this strip of Miami Beach. It's now dwarfed by everything that's been built around it in the last 25 years. The pool is small but never crowded. And the beach is close enough with hotel umbrellas and towels available. The food in the restaurant wasn't particularly good, although... More

I'm am currently on a vacation and I booked this trip on Hotwire and the pictures makes the hotel look more luxurious than it really is. Wouldn't stay here again. They were doing construction and the food was disgusting. It's more like a motel than a hotel.
