Good hotel, but due to an error made by Booking.com, we had to pay USD 339 EXTRA even though it was obvious that Booking.com had made a mistake (a booking mistake) Gale South Beach didn't care but just charged USD 339 extra in addition to what we already had paid and blamed Booking.com. So be sure the hotel don't charge...

I cant' find anything to criticise on this hotel, except maybe the fact, that they do not offer any breakfast service. The rooms are great (modern, clean, homey, comfortable, greatly equiped), the rooftop pool is big enough and its water clean and clear. The service qualitiy is high, the staff's friendly and obliging. Gale SB is very good situated, restaurants,...

On a recent vacation to Orlando we decided to take a trip to Miami. We found the Gale on Booking.com for a great price and have to say it surpassed all expectations. The room was absolutely beautiful and modern. The shower was the best I've ever had! A 55" smart TV adorned the walls. By all accounts a very impressive...

We decided to extend our getaway to SB and chose The Gale for our last night. I wish that we had heard about it sooner.
