We brought ~30 people from 10 countries to Hotel South Beach Resort for a one-week business conference in OCT 2016. In a word, the hotel was EXCELLENT. Management went out of their way to ensure that we had a stellar experience. They arranged all entertainment, food and local transport, which took a huge load off our shoulders so we could... More

The first thing you notice is the amount of concrete used to build the hotel! a bit more greenery would have been nice considering its supposed to be a "resort".

If you're a day visitor looking to party, I believe this is the place to go since they throw a pool party every weekend.
