Why We Love It

  • Quiet AAA 4-Diamond beach resort, five minutes from the party scene of South Beach
  • The pool is tucked into a big tropical landscape lined with palm trees and hammocks
  • Much of the menu at Essensia, the hotel’s farm-to-table restaurant, comes from an on-site organic garden
  • Some rooms have panoramic ocean views

Rooms & Rates

Set directly on Miami Beach's boardwalk, amid tropical gardens the laidback Palms Hotel & Spa is just a five-minute drive to flashy South Beach but the ambiance here is much more serene and secluded.

Lazy afternoons can be spent at the pool surrounded by palm trees and hammocks, on the beach (lounge chairs and umbrellas are included in resort fee) or at the on-site Aveda lifestyle spa and salon that has a steam room, outdoor treatment cabanas and a Vichy-shower.

The hotel’s signature Essensia restaurant serves up wholesome global cuisine with popular appeal -- some ingredients come directly from the Chef’s on-property organic garden. Happy hour is held Mondays-Thursdays from 5-7 p.m. offering discounted drinks. Don’t miss the poolside Tiki Bar, which serves up a daily featured drink and has a lively scene in the early evening. Cabanas are also available to rent.

The rooms and suites have spa-inspired bathrooms (with rain showerheads) and floor-to-ceiling windows, with views of the ocean, the property's lush gardens or the Miami Beach cityscape. Suites come with private balconies.

There is a $19 hotel fee per day (inclusive of tax) that includes unlimited Wi-Fi, gym access, beach chairs, local and toll free calls and a daily newspaper.

Get to know the coastal metropolis from land, air and sea with top attractions, luxe spa days and evening dinners out on the town.

Enjoyed Most: Overall quality was excellent!
Other Comments: Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The maids were very sweet, loved the evening turn down service with chocolates on the pillows. Our stay included the breakfast buffet which was fabulous.....great selection of food, they have their own bakery so breads and pastries were delicious. So much better than the usual continental breakfast provided by lots of hotels, this was a full buffet! The grounds were very pretty, short distance between the pool and ocean. Lounge chairs (super comfortable) and umbrellas everywhere.

Enjoyed Most: Pool, beach access, wonderful room, breakfast buffet, essensia superb menus, staff, prenatal massage for my pregnant wife, great gym.
Other Comments: Daniel at the Front Desk was superb, upgraded our room, answered our questions as we settled in, and gave us honest recommendations that worked out real well. He was fabulous member of the staff. The noise from the constructive was intrusive in the mornings but all of Collins Ave is under construction so you have to live with it.
