Asian inspired restaurant from Japanese to Thai to Indian food. Amazing ambience with beautiful and tasteful decor. Friendly and attentive service. Ridiculous prices for what's being offered both on their entrees and main courses. Food was generally carelessly prepared. The Maguro Alamo was good but just good. The Hagashi Toro was seared for so long that it was mostly brown...

I stayed in a 2-bedroom apartment in the tower. Very clean and quiet flat, enjoying superb views. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. Outstanding restaurants and very nice beach. A few minutes walk to Lincoln road, therefore it is easy to go out not using always a car.

Stayed there for a few nights while on business, the hotel was exceptional. The room had a great view, wood floors, very clean, and modern. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. I enjoyed the dining very much too.

Let me start by saying that we ate lunch at the grill just of the boardwalk. The food was interesting an excellent. Our server was lovely, professional and polite. Unfortunately it took AN HOUR to get our main course, and I noticed that the couple beside us had the same problem. The manager came to our table (we made NO...

First visit to the Setai. Upon arrival, check in is fast and easy. First thing I noticed when entering the room is the absolutely awesome smell. Relaxing right away! The room is spacious, the soaking tub placement in the room is unexpected but we enjoyed it very much. The walk-in bathroom with his and hers sides is very well designed....

A first class hotel with great rooms. The staff is very accommodating. They really go out of their way to please. The common spaces are really beautiful, especially the pool area. The beach is readily accessible.

This place does not have the vibe of South Beach whatsoever. That can be a good thing. If you want the restaurants, night life and clubs of Miami but would rather be in a more relaxed environment, then this is the place for you. Very beautiful with an Asian vibe. The staff could not be nicer or more helpful. On...

From all the hotels visited, this one is by far the best in town. The food is amazing and the choices are very appealing. If you can at least try a cocktail at the bar, it would still be an excellent idea for you to get to have a small idea of what they have to offer. In few words......
