The setai is probably the best hotel in Miami beach. Nice pool, private beach, good service but with a lot of space to improve and become an excellence. The beach for example could be more luxurious and well mantained. Beds are old, umbrellas, little cheap, service slow. The oriental spirit makes this place more thai than Miami, but the room...

This is a fabulous place! The place is a great "friends" getaway because it is located near the beach and bar/club. Very kind and well trained staff. The rooms were extremely spacious I surely had a very wonderful experience.

We stayed in the Residence Towers for the second time and found even with a change of ownership that the level of service is incomparable. By the second day you are greeted by name at the entrance, at the pool and at the beach, and everyone makes every effort to insure your comfort. No request is too small for their...

The rooms are exquisite and so is the service. The rain shower is a blessing. A well-trained staff goes to extremes to satisfy, waiting on guests as if they were royalty. Most employees address you by name. And having a choice of three lap pools, each kept at different temperatures, is a real luxury. It was our second visit and...
