I can’t say enough positive things about our stay at Sea View. My best friend and I both went through bad breakups recently and decided to take a girls trip to Miami. We wanted to be away from the Spring Break and Ultra crowd and found Sea View online with enticing photos and reviews. When we arrived we were given a complimentary upgrade. Staff was friendly and accommodating, any questions or requests we had were answered efficiently and effectively. Our room was very clean and spacious, the beds were cozy and the shower had great water pressure. The view from the balcony was stunning! We had our routine every day of having breakfast, heading to the beach (such an easy experience: walk out of the pool gate and a beautiful private beach awaits you with chairs, towels and umbrellas ready to go. Dream life!) then head to the pool bar! Geri was a great bartender who made perfect drinks and was really easy and cool to talk to. She definitely became our new friend! Ordering food at the pool bar was also nice (try the fries!) as was heading to the coffee shop for the best milkshake on the beach. Jennifer from the coffee shop was lovely! We would take a nap then go out at night where a Lyft/Uber was never more than 4 minutes away. The Bal Harbour shops are within walking distance (less than 5 minutes) and are a shopper’s paradise. We also found it easy enough to walk to Bay Harbour (15 ish minutes) where there are cute little cafes and a delicious chocolate shop!
Bar Harbour is about a 25 minute ride from South Beach and feels like a quiet oasis away from the chaos. I personally prefer this but if you don’t, you may want to find something closer to South Beach. If you are into ultra luxury, the posh Ritz Carlton and St Regis are right next door but Sea View has an old world glamour that is (in my opinion) more comfortable and refined.
1 more fun fact: the hotel is equal distance from both FLL & MIA airports.
I was SO SAD to leave the beach heaven of Bal Harbour and quiet, safe relaxation of Sea View to go home to cold, snowy DC but I will absolutely come back and when I do, the only place I will stay is Sea View! Thank you to the entire staff for making this the best vacation ever. We look forward to seeing you again!

The hotel was great, clean comfortable and nice atmosphere. At the bar. Geri was the best!! Bartender by the pool informative , helpful. Lots of good conversation. She was attentive and detailed. Smile on her face always. She will be the reason for our next trip back there. As well as a great atmosphere . Breakfast after arriving from a cruise was a little slow considering our room wasn’t ready. But they held our bags. Recommended!! Tell Geri the jersey girl sent you :)

This is our fourth or fifth visit to this old and under considered hotel, that in my opinion, complies with each and every requirement that well bred but not flashy searching tourists
need to meet a very pleasant séjour. The pool and it´s service which a are compulsory wht it´s sunshades, are absolutely worthwhile to enjoy the relaxing sunny period of the day. Lunch either at the Cafeteria or terrace are simply very adequate. The Bar in the evening/night, before and /or after dinner are most enjoyable as there is a very nice and quality Menú and a remarkable atmosphere, created by habitues who are always delighted by a pianist who plays old movie music.

Room Tip: I prefer a quiet standard room

Since my husband's grandfather is very ill and lives in the area, we looked for a hotel nearby to have our small 50 person wedding. The Sea View was elegant, intimate and beautiful. The weather held out (although very windy) and our wedding service was held outdoors near the pool on the shuffleboard court with the reception inside in the beautiful music room. My parents surprised my husband and me with the bridal/ honeymoon suite and it was gorgeous! We had out of town guests also staying overnight in the hotel and their rooms were lovely and spacious as well.

There are only 2 small criticisms I can give: 1. The jacuzzi part of the jacuzzi tub was not working, although the bath still worked. 2. The wait staff was in a hurry to clean up and accidentally took our food at the wedding, so my husband and I didn't get to eat our main course. Otherwise, it was an incredible and unforgettable evening and I will cherish it and the Sea View hotel! Thank you so much!! We hope to come back again and again!!

Room Tip: The Bridal Suite/ Honeymoon suite is incredible, but the other rooms our guests had are wonderful too. Ask for a sea view room.

The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Our family of 4 enjoy a four day stay and sat poolside each day. The cabana is a nice feature with great pool staff and the beach right there. Room was small and dated but clean.
