The restaurant in the front of the hotel is better than the one that services the pool.

We liked everything about the hotel: location, modern up to date furnishings and decorations. We liked the whole house AC vrs a room unit which for us makes too much noise. We also could open a window for fresh air--very important to us. We like the size of the place not too small and not too large. The pool was nice. It was heated and clean. Lots of staff to make sure everything was OK. The ONLY thing we did not like was the way the TV worked. We wanted to watch regular TV often ; News, etc. It took FOREVER to get to regular TV. There was no clear path shown to get you to regular TV. The numbers and letters on remote were small, dark and hard to read. ...

My wife and I only stay at Kimptons if we have the option. The service is always outstanding and each hotel has it's own uniqueness. The Surfcomber is in a great spot and I would absolutely stay here again

Loved the wine hour
February 18, 2013
Interesting decor, I still don't understand what the plastic farm animals are about. Don't be frightened by the word "boutique" in the description. Boutique doesn't mean shoddy, gaudy or cheap. It simply means not cookie cutter. I appreciated the decor. The staff were very helpful in recommending places to eat - I was not disappointed by any of their suggestions. The concierge secured a 9pm reservation for my friend and I at a 4 star restaurant and called for our transportation. We did not have to carry our bags at any time. Valet were generally attentive, punctual and on point. Free wine at 5-6pm is a nice way to start the evening. Private entrance to beach. The room numbers in the 160s do not have a view at all. We had a small window (maybe 30" x 18") in the bedroom area and that was the only way to get natural light. The bed was large and comfortable. Very important - the only place I could find an easily accessible wall charger for phone/Ipad was in the bathroom. One is tightly fit behind the tv, but this could be attributed to the type of room that I was in. Outside ambiance was nice. There is an outdoor bar, plenty of lounging room, a swing and the beach. Hot towels are available and there are plenty of spa/massage opportunities. Overall, very pleasant stay. Might stay here again. Considering the price we were working with, we were pleased with what we got. ...

This Hotel had very nice amenities. They had a calendar that listed different activities every day of the month. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The hotel staff was very friendly and accomodating. I loved the free happy hour from 5-6, a very nice treat. The grounds were beautiful. Overall, my husband and I really like this hotel and will definitely be back when we visit South Beach. The Surfcomber hotel really gives you a Bang for your Buck! ...
