A stay here is very expensive
Those who have stayed at the Z Ocean Hotel South Beach were wowed by the hotel's pleasant staff and the outstanding ambience. For many recent guests, it was the vistas that made a stay here memorable. To enjoy the view overlooking Ocean Drive and the ocean, many suggest you book one of the rooftop terrace suites. In addition to the superb vistas, you'll have a hot tub and plenty of space to lounge. If you're not in the mood to splurge, recent guests said the standard suites are just as luxurious, with rain showers, espresso machines, wet bars and oversized, furnished balconies. Recent lodgers also raved about the on-site restaurant, the Front Porch Café, saying that the food is as excellent as the service. Note that you'll be within walking distance of the beach, but the hotel isn't directly on the sand. However, some previous guests said that you'll have to pay a pretty penny for a room at this central Miami Beach location.

Critic Reviews



Z Ocean Hotel balances modest amenities and service with big, comfortable suites, a prime location, and reasonable rates. Marketing itself to adult couples, it successfully achieves an intimate, laid-back vibe.



The lauded firm of Arquitectonica designed the rooms and suites at this glossy and bold hideaway, including 27 rooftop suites endowed with terraces, each complete with Jacuzzi, plush chaise lounges, and a view of the South Beach skyline. Rooms are at least 500 square feet and have big balconies.



This chic hotel, featuring upscale decor with residential comforts, is located very close to shopping and just steps from the beach. Expect oversized guest rooms with wet bar and impressive service.
