I recently had the pleasure of a 4 night stay at the Setai in South Beach. Service was stupendous. The amount of staff at this property is astounding and all with smiles and a willingness to please. Rooms were well appointed and spacious. Easy beach access and beautiful pool area.

I had to call the manager because the cleaning lady was in my room and she locked the door. I had the baby I was taking care of with me and asked her to unlock. Her response was ''when I finish the cleaning '' !!!

My wife recently returned from a long weekend at The Setai. We have stayed at many hotels in South Beach and The Setai is a mixture of the best of each. It is a beautiful hotel decorated in a very nice style. The rooms are very nice and the pool is great. The best part about The Setai is that...

This is our second visit to The Setai and it's the same incredible service. This hotel is a real treat to escape to for anyone. From the moment you walk in the door you can forget the rest of the world. The restaurant at the pool had fresh octopus that was Mediterranean quality. We hope to always get a chance...

The Setai is a very upscale 5 Star Resort/Spa in a fantastic area of Miami Beach. It's no surprise lots of celebrities stay at this property all the time. Appearances from the front are deceiving. It's on a busy street (Collins Ave), but it's literally on the beach. Once you walk in, you're welcomed by wonderful staff, a cool signature...

A really cool first class experience. Just a shame the weather was poor when we stayed . To wet and windy for the beach, however the three elegant deco style pools of varying temperatures were a delight. This is a beautiful Art Deco style Hotel which offers an exotic eastern atmosphere. .

Only spent one quick night at The Setai in a handicapped accessible room on the 5th floor at the end of the hallway. Room was extra spacious with a partial ocean view and partial building parking lot. The checkin process was quick and efficient, the room service was fast and of high quality. This hotel is in a great location...

Wonderful interiors, nice pools and spa and great dining experiences topped by exceptional customer service, especially Bruno and Elvis at the Pool and Ghalia at breakfast went above and beyond! The concierge Eleonor and Thomas were of great help and wonderful to talk with. Chapeau!
