I've been here before and enjoyed it. But since the owner died in 2015 things have changed. Lights don't work, stuffy, drawers won't close. The ice machine isn't working and it's 85 degrees. Desk was dismissive. When we arrived, there were four decaf coffee cups in our room. No caffeinated. Pool guy plays loud commercial radio, despite better music audible...

Dirty, scruffy, REALLY noisy, tired, and completely uncaring/ rude staff and management. We were returning customers - the place has lost any charm it might once have had and is now just seedy. Don't bother.

I planned a family trip down to Miami (5 adults and 3 children) my husband and I usually stay at the palms with my daughter but they were booked. The hotel is very old and small. The rooms have barely any space to move around. I found blood on my sheets and mold in the showers. Needs a serious remodel....

We have been guests at the South Seas Hotel twice before, although not for a few years. It was truly nice that Ana--and the team at breakfast--all remembered and treated us like returning friends. Our room was spacious (we chose an ocean view), had a refrigerator, and was nicely made-up every day. We enjoyed spending a lot of time in...
