It was one of our several stays a the Setai Tower over the several years and it is still one of the best Hotels I know. Great area of SB, pool facilities, rooms, restaurants are so good that you never want to leave. Staff is excellent and we love the breakfast and very comfortable beach chairs. The only two things...

There is one 5 star location in Miami and it is the Setai - no question. But since the management/ownership changed some things changes also for the guest - and some of these changes might not be for the best. Let´s pick valet parking; during our 8 day stay we where presented with more than 5 different cars due to...

This is not the first time we were staying in this hotel. This time we found the service under average compared with other hotels of this category we are used to, especially when you pay over $2000 a night. The room are large and pleasant although the noise insulation is far from being perfect. The valet parking requires every time...

Nice hotel. A bit pricey, which I typically don't mind. My main problem with the place is that I was told one of their three pools was heated to 90 degrees. When I was there, the pools were all too chilly to set foot in. I was told that the pool heaters couldn't keep up with the cooler air temperatures...

This hotel is a luxurious haven in the hustle of south beach. From the moment of check in with a welcoming cocktail to the large comfortable rooms everything is designed to make you feel at home The service is excellent and the pool and beach glorious. I would highly recommend if you want pure luxury.

If this is a 5 star hotel, then pigs really can fly!! From broken doors, broken blinds, broken lights, leaking toilets, blocked sinks to idiotic and sometimes rude staff, this hotel has it all. Mind you, most of the above room problems cannot be seen as the bedrooms are so dark! Make sure if you do go, it's very warm...

Extended family stayed at the Setai over the Holidays. Here is a drill-down 1. Room: We stayed in a two bedroom suite and loved the Duxiana beds, the amenities and the furniture. I am a sucker for the washer dryer since I refuse to pay 10 dollars for laundry on a tshirt. 2. Beach club: Wonderful three-temperature pool area. I...

I'm always conflicted about where to stay in Miami. My husband and I like luxury, ocean and good food but find South Beach to quickly get cheesy and loud. We don't care for The Four Seasons in Miami because of the location and find the W Hotel, although very pretty, too loud. The Setai ended up being the perfect compromise...
