          The Surfcomber was great value for money, especially considering its location on South Beach across from the Delano and with beach access. The service from all the staff at the front desk and concierge was amazing and the Kimpton Hotel chain really thinks about its guests with free coffee in the mornings and free wine from 5-6pm. I was here with a group of girls for my bachelorette party and we would all highly recommend this hotel!

          The only thing I did not like about this hotel was the food from the restaurant and how early they stop service at the pool with no more towels by 7pm. Besides breakfast I would not recommend the food at the Lantao Kitchen here although the cocktails are great. I ordered pad thai and it did not even have chilli or fish sauce. We ordered chicken wings and they came triple dipped in sweet chilli sauce and no one could eat more than one. They must have changed the chef or put a new chef in the kitchen...

          The location was excellent! Beach and Lincoln Road were right there. Staff was very friendly..... Opening front doors when you entered and we were even able to check-in to our room early. Drinks and food available poolside. Night swims at midnight were perfect!!

          No spa services. No coffee makers in room although coffee was available in the lobby.

          good location (on the 1st line, not noisy but at the same time close to Ocean Drive, some good clubs and restaurants nearby)

          small rooms, available facilities and services correspond more to 3* or 3.5*

          Little touches like free wine hour, fruit/water/sun cream/magazines free by the pool!

          All staff were great but 2 were curt as if we bothered them. Gratuity 18% on every bill.

          The position and people working there were rally nice!

          They should organize something at night and clean the swimmingpool better!

          It is luxury without the price of a 5 stars hotel.

          The hotel was very trendy and interior designed beautifully as you might expect in South Beach, Miami. The staff seemed very enthusiastic to help and the location of the hotel is perfect for all that South Beach has to offer. It is walking distance to Lincoln Rd., and Ocean Drive and also has a section on the beach with chairs and cabanas for rental. The coffee in the lobby was a nice touch in the mornings.

          The rooms (they are also kind of small, so be prepared to be cozy) are on lower floors (only 3 floors in the hotel) that are fairly set back from the there really isn't a great option for a view. If there is, we didn't get one remotely. Our room was in an alley facing the wall of the building next door. This felt odd to me since I've stayed in Miami many times and usually have some sort of water or at least green tree view. There was work going on at the very close hotel next door and we were awoken at 8:00 am to their drills and equipment. Lastly, the pool area is fairly small compared to other hotels so you really have to stake out your chairs if you want to sit there. We were there for 3 nights so none of this was worth complaining about, but it would make me think twice next time.

          Staff were great. Concierge (Reuben) was excellent.

          Ongoing construction was a bother.

          They charge your card, without asking you. If you want to pay cash, you can't nobody ask, they just charge the card during your stay. For example, one day before my checkout, they charge my card for all the nights. Why ? and I if I wanted to pay by cash all my stay ? Girls at the reception, they are not happy to work there, you can feel's a 4 stars Hotel... During the Miami Music Week, there isn't difference between the hotel guest other "clients". You have a Wristband to have an access at the pool parties but from the pool party to your room, you have to go out by the beach side, turn all around the hotel and get in again by the street...stupid. People from the pool party production doesn't care if you are from the hotel or not... If go out by the closest exit door from your room to have access at the pool party, guys ask you to do the queue.... 100 people queue... And you are from the hotel I repeat... Maybe try surfcomber hotel another week than miami music week... Good Luck if you wanna book anyway x

          Location and new room also knowledgeable porter please see below

          We I booked via the web I particularly selected the hotel because of the tea and coffee making facilities in the room and also the free wifi in the lobby.... None of these were available. No information in the rooms regarding these facilities or in fact any other facilities that the hotel had to offer. The porter, a tall thin moustached gentleman was knowledgeable and helpful and gave the most information as to the obtaining of early morning tea/coffee in the lobby. No glasses were provided in the bathroom for when brushing teeth.. Staff at reception were lacking in service. I asked if it was possible for late checkout and was told that there would be no problem to checkout at 2.00 pm. We returned to our room at 1.20 pm to get our cases ready etc but were locked out of the room. I had to go to reception and ask to be let into the room .... was asked whom I had spoken to regarding the late checkout. After recognising the fact that an arrangement had been made the cards were activated. Once packed and just about to leave the room at 1.45pm, the phone rang and I was asked when were we going to vacate the room!

          Perfect location to take in all the action in South Beach. Pool area was great--appropriate music playing, comfortable lounge chairs and a warm pool to swim in. Beautiful beach right out side. The staff was very helpful in sending us to great dining spots and what to see while here.

          Parking was a bit pricey-$35./day, but maybe that's just South Beach
