Some of South Beach’s best hotels host sexy pool parties that kick-off during the day and lead into nights of fun long after the sun goes down. Grand oceanfront resorts and smaller boutique properties offer guests a variety of hotel options from budget-friendly to truly opulent. At some of the larger hotels, lavish pool decks are appointed with tropical landscapes, private VIP cabanas and food & drink service throughout the day. Even if you’ve decided to save money by staying elsewhere, a day pass at a luxury resort adds some extra sizzle to your South Beach adventure.
