We had a wonderful stay at the South Beach. All hotel, casino and restaurant staff were professional, polite and helpful. The hotel was bright and decorated with a Florida theme. The beds were very comfortable, in fact, my mother in law raved about the pillows. The pool is larger than most hotel pools and has lots of windows. There was no hot tub but I didn't miss it.
We ate at the restaurant for breakfast, which was included with our room, and once for the international buffet and once for the Thursday seafood buffet. We enjoyed the meals. Although the buffet is not huge, it had everything we needed. The seafood buffet included cocktail shrimp, cod, bbq salmon, cold mussells, & scallops. Crab and lobster were brought to the table separately. It was a little busy on Thursday as would be expected, and therefore the service was just a tad slow, but our waiter was running himself ragged, so maybe they were short-staffed. Also, there was no other protein other than fish and seafood so if you do not like fish, I would recommend another restaurant.
The casino was a lot of fun and the majority of slots are penny machines. There was a pop dispenser with free pop and cold water. There was also a Van Houtte coffee system with coffees and hot chocolate for all tastes and all for free. Alberta could take a few tips from this casino.
Our stay was marvelous and I would recommend this hotel to any of my friends.
