Love those mojitos!!

Jan 20, 2015 by Lisa Molina

I was sold the second I took a sip of my complimentary mojito prepared by the bartender Rene. I'm from San Antonio, TX and have ordered mojitos at various restaurants in SA, but none compare to those from The Place bar. Rene really knows his craft. The other bartender, Lucas, was super friendly and knows how to make an awesome mojito too. All the staff at the hotel were great - friendly, professional, and full of smiles. I was impressed with the housekeeping staff - we would come back to a super clean room with plenty of clean towels. Two ladies need plenty of clean towels - believe me! The beach is right across the street and was lots of fun. Food at the restaurant was delicious. Just wish the bathroom would have been larger with more counter space. All in all, I would stay here again.

There are not many hotels that stay open for many years. I remember my mom telling me she came in the late 40's to Miami for her honeymoon from Cuba. Yes, at that time you could travel freely. We have lived in Miami since 1966 and would drive to the beach to look at the hotel. Never got tired. We have seen many changes to the Hotel and the area, although never physically staying in the hotel(could not afford it). I get chills knowing that in some ways this hotel is part of our family.

Had a Great Time

The staff was wonderful, helpful.
Comfortable and clean.
The breakfast was fantastic!!
Loved the short walk to the beach for sunrise every morning!
On the 'down' side, rooms are small especially the bathroom which is poorly lit. Also bathroom has semi-frosted see through door which some might find uncomfortable.
Also had to ask for housekeeping to take care of room.

Great Lunch

We didn't stay here, but stopped for lunch as we walked the beach. The service and food were fantastic. You can't beat the atmosphere and of course, "2.4.1" :) Thank You.

We have just returned from a 4 day trip to South Beach. We stayed at The Beacon Hotel - what a treat. The Beacon is a jewel - clean, ultra comfortable and modern. I have never come across such helpful staff - always with a smile and a suggestion - I would not hesitate to recommend this wonderful hotel to all my clients/family and friends. We will make return trips to South Beach, just to stay at the Beacon again and again. Its a home from home.

Best weekend ever

Best location, amazing staff, and super clean. This place exceeded my expectations by far! The beach chairs and towels were so convenient as well as the free hot breakfast and valet parking that were included in the special we purchased. I have stayed in many hotels over the years and never had a customer service experience as great as this one. The staff not only called us by name every time we walked by but offered us water if we looked hot, gave us free passes to nightclubs and even surprised me with a complimentary bottle of champagne and a birthday card. I thought that by purchasing a Groupon at such a cheap rate we probably wouldn't receive 5 star treatment - not the case! I can't say enough great things about this place. We will definitely be returning to the Beacon Hotel again!

Response: Dear Amy,

Than you so very much for your kind words. We would love to have you stay with us again!

Perfect Beach GetAway

Jun 21, 2013 by Lynn

My sister turned 30 on June 15th. In February, we talked about what she wanted to do to celebrate the beginning of her 30s. She asked if I could find flights and a hotel for us to stay in; the goal was to just get a tan on the beach, have dinner together on Ocean Drive, and to enjoy shopping. We have been to South Beach on 4 different occasions. This was the best hotel we have stayed at yet. The beach was the easiest access with towels and chairs provided! We were so excited for those benefits. Having breakfast provided was also wonderful. You never know what you might get with that option, but The Beacon had great omelets, pancakes, and Belgian waffles. We enjoyed having a variety of breakfast options and to be able to eat while people watching on Ocean Drive every morning. We are planning to return to South Beach again for sure in the next two years; this hotel will definitely be at the top of our list for making reservations again.

This is my second stay at the beacon. The staff is very friendly. The free breakfast is amazing! The location is perfect. My only complaints are they don't let you go on the roof top where they have beautiful patio furniture set up and the mirror in the room is on the side of the bed where its dark and its not full length. But besides that I love the beacon.

i really, enjoy my stayed at The Beacon hotel from Saturday 25th May through 28th. The hotel is situated in the heart of the beach and convenient to all the activities. The staffs ( Juliana & co) and the cleaning services personnel are very awesome. i requested a refrigerator from the front desk and within couple minutes, i saw the engineer by my door with it. As such am recommend this hotel to whoever traveling to South Beach

Great Stay

I had a great stay at the Beacon, friendly and helpful staff, did have an issue with one of the valet guys attitude, but it worked itself out, otherwise, clean room, hotel itself, the noise level was great, I would definately recommend to friends and go back for another stay.... Had a great time!

Only Place To Stay

Apr 26, 2013 by Harry Baughn

Incredible location. Fantastic staff. Great room with beach towels and beach chairs provided. Free breakfast. Why would anyone stay elsewhere? Juliana is wonderful, Victor is the perfect character for this historic place and even Reynauldo brings a smile to your face. Service is great. No question we will be back!

we absolutely loved the locale of the beacon! we were only staying in south beach for a nite, but the time spent there was well worth every minute of it! juan carlos and gus were awesome! they gave great recomendations on where to eat and where to drink. they accommodated us the next day with a late checkout, beach chairs and towels for the beach, access to the hotel's facilities and a shower in the gym to use while we waited for our late evening flight home. we will definitely be returning on our next trip back!

Our first time in South Beach and the Beacon was a perfect location. The staff was great and had a great time. I highly recommend this hotel for your stay.

Friendly staff

Most outstanding feature is the very friendly staff. They really make you feel like an appreciated guest. Great location right on Ocean Drive, however, a bit noisy at night, but that is the trade off for the location. Can't wait until I return.
