Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ci04 Nice room and great service
I really liked the Z Ocean hotel. Our king suite was very nicely designed and decorated. We also loved having the balcony. The hotel has a superb location---it's a little further north on Ocean drive but still just across from the beach.
The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful, especially those at the front desk and in housekeeping.
The hotel is showing some signs of wear. My hope is that it is maintained because it is a real winner.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bob1626 Splendid Stay
Our stay was most enjoyable. The staff were great and very accommodating and professional. The dining and bar operations were excellent. Our only criticism was the generally poor lighting in the rooms. It was virtually impossible to read after dark. One bedside table had no lamp and the light on the other side was too weak. The very small lamp in the main room was insufficient for normal reading. The dim light around the bed served no purpose. These were the only negatives from a very special stay. In spite of the lighting problem, we will be back!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Go1234 Nice, comfortable room and great bartender
Veronica, the pool bartender, is extremely professional and makes the best mojitos ever! Although we never received nightly housekeeping service, they were very responsive to remedy the situation in the morning. The only negative was that the hotel allows smoking around the pool and in open areas.

Location, atmosphere, facilities and staff are all exceptionally good. A unique and special property. Only one small criticism- the beautiful marble pool deck looks great but is too slippery!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kapstar Absolutely stunning
This hotel is a bit pricey but is truly worth it! Centered in the heart of the bustling and eclectic center of South Beach, it's perfect walking distance to everything. The rooms were incredible with views of the city, and if your lucky, even the ocean! I highly recommend this hotel. The staff is very helpful as well.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pekka56 Good location but was it value for money
We stayed in this hotel for 11 nights. When arriving to hotel (6:30pm) our room was not ready. Then we were told that we got upgrade for the room but actually it was downgrade to the lowest level, on Collins Avenue side (no any seaview), behind 2 big palm tress (only 2 rooms with similr non-view from balcony, very dark). The room itself was big with good bathroom. Lights were lousy (as in almost every hotel nowadays), difficult to read anywhere else than on bed. Room cleaning worked pretty well though there was a lot of dust on shelves when we arrived. Balcony was never cleaned, black dust and dirt everywhere. Lobby and bar are pretty low and darkish, more bright lights would improve the feeling. "Gym" was disappointment with very minimal setup. Personnel was nice and friendly. Also location was good, hotel opens also on Ocean Drive side.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CosmoK One of the Best Properties in South Beach
Overall, the Z Ocean is my favorite hotel in South Beach Miami.
The Z Ocean Hotel is perfectly located
In general, everything is within walking distance, even Lincoln Mall if you are up for it.
1) The Ocean Drive side of the hotel is away from the hustle and touts of hotel-based restaurants along Ocean Drive.
2) It's across from Lummus Park, on its northern end, with easy access to the beach and a major beach entryway.
3) Attached to the hotel is a popular and professional (no touts) casual restaurant.
4) The Ocean Dr. side has a Starbucks directly across the street.
5) The Collins side of the hotel is right at Espanola Way, which is a small tree-lined street with several boutique restaurants and cafes.
The rooms are fantastic
The room I had was spacious, modern, well appointed and comfortable.
My room had a spacious bathroom, living room, bar area with a single pod coffee maker, microwave and fridge.
A patio area included lounges, chairs and tables.
The king size bed was very comfortable.
I arrived earlier than the check-in time, so my room was not available, but I was offered a place to change my clothes if wanted to spend my time waiting on the beach.
Dealing with the staff did not require any manipulation on my part, they seemed to want to make my stay enjoyable.
Housekeeping staff were like ninjas, I would return to find everything straightened, cleaned, replenished and made up. I never saw them in the halls.
This is a modern hotel, with fresh elements like the indoor patio with casual furniture that has a bar, where you can order food from the restaurant.
There is a pool area with a bar, but I spent my time at the beach instead.
Beach service for guests includes lounge chairs and umbrellas.
The Z Ocean does not have a business area, or an area with a desktop computer and printer for printing boarding passes. They have an iPad at the front desk you can use to print to a printer that is behind the front desk. I had to attempt printing several times to finally get my boarding passes. I do use the passbook app, but the United app was not behaving, otherwise printing would not be an issue.
Note to Staff
When I was leaving the hotel I was in a discussion with the staff - if I should take a taxi to MIA or the number 150 airport bus. The staff was concerned that I would not make my flight, citing over an hour travel time versus 30 minutes for a taxi, but I took my chances - the bus trip took only 40 minutes and I made my flight in time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Texas1400 Wonderful room with large balcony
The floorplan of the room was flawless. Enjoyed the location.
The 1st floor breezeway to Ocean Street was handy.
The fresh lemon/lime water cooler in the lobby was nice and greatly appreciated.
The parking valet was very quick and always helpful.
The beach/cabana service was good, too.

An absolutely fabulous experience!!! This was my husband and my first time in South Beach, I had planned this trip as a surprise 50th birthday present for him and I could of not asked for a better experience!!! From the moment you enter the hotel lobby you are welcomed with a smile and a complimentary glass of champagne!! Upon entering your room (we had a rooftop terrace) it was jaw dropping!! The room was beautiful but the roof top terrace was amazing.I strongle encourage the rooftop.The staff was more than accommodating especially Micky the concierge. He truly made our experience a memory. I highly reccommend The Z Ocean .

This hotel is a very classy reworking of a vintage building. All the staff are attentive, knowledgeable, and just fantastic. The bed was so comfortable that I called back after my trip to find out the brand name of the mattress! Walk over to Espanola Way to find some great restaurants.

This is our second time to this property. The location is amazing you don't need a car and everything is in walking distance. The decor of the rooms are modern and beautiful. This time we upgraded to a suite with a loft and private hot tub. The housekeeper will prepare your hot tub at your request and have it ready for you to indulge. Mickey the Concierge was very helpful with any questions of the Miami area. The pool area is very relaxing and was offered frozen grapes while we had our swim. All the staff seemed happy to assist you. We cant wait for our next stay!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by IrisTina Thanksgiving weekend--3 nights
This is my second review for this weekend, and this form only asks if I am a PCR member; not which tier. My other review did not show my tier when the review posted. I have been a Platinum member for 10 years.
My Platinum status was recognized at check-in; however, I was not offered any extra perks. After I got to my room and saw the Internet charge of $14, I called the front desk and was given an access code, so I did receive free Internet service. I did not receive the "VIP" monogrammed pillowcases bragged about on Facebook, or a spa or rooftop suite upgrade.
The suite was spacious, comfortable, and soundproof. We did not receive consistent turndown service, and again--no turndown "delicacies" like what is shown on Facebook.
We were not told about the Beach Club across the street, so I am glad I read the guestroom directory and other guest reviews because otherwise we would not have known about it. The pool and beach chairs were comfortable. The pool staff was attentive and provided great service. The pool floor area needed to be washed with soap and water because the soles of our feet and shoes turned black. The dirt was not visible when looking at the floor, just on our soles afterward.
Happy Hour in the hotel restaurant--The Front Porch Cafe--was excellent. I highly recommend the shrimp tacos. Room service breakfast was barely "okay." I would not recommend the California Omelette.

The staff was very eager to assist in any way they could . As I was checking in we were offered lemonade and I jokingly said I would prefer something a bit stronger after spending the day in the airport and almost immediately the concierge appeared with a glass of champagne for us! The room was beautifully appointed , the location was great and everything was perfect.
