Great Santa. He was attentive and very helpful to our last minute needs. Would definitely rehire or recommend.
Santa was amazing, every one at my party commented on how he was the best Santa they'd ever seen. Highly recommend
He was great! Got to the party on time! And the kids were very impressed! Would highly recommend!
This gentleman did an amazing job as Santa! He was well mannered, prompt, entertaining and absolutely magical! There were tears in our eyes as we watched him interact with the children and bring the magic of Christmas to our home! Perfection! You will not be disappointed!
He was absolutely amazing!!! Highly recommend!
Wow! Santa was outstanding! Perfect. Couldn’t be happier. He even sang Christmas songs! Never broke character! I will be hiring him again next year!!
Response from Santa Miami:
He showed up on time for my daughters birthday event. He was patient and kind to all the kids and even sang songs to them and read them a book. He memorized why all the kids were on the nice list and even read a couple of their wish lists in person! The children and adults alike loved him!
We had Santa come to our holiday Pajama party and boy was it amazing! The children and parents were all amazed at everything he remembered and how he addressed each child by name. He left a lasting impression with everyone that attended the event. I highly recommend Santa Miami to anyone that would like Real Santa to be a part of their celebration. :)
We hired Santa Ernie for our annual Santa visit. He was absolutely perfect. The children and parents were completely star struck. Santa memorized the names of all 21 children, a reason why they are on the nice list and whispered in their ear something to work on. He even handed out gifts to each child and had enough time to read the kids a story and sing 2 songs with them. We cannot wait to use him again next year. The parents are still talking about what a magical experience It was.
SANTA MIAMI SHOWED UP ON TIME AND DID A GREAT JOB!
Response from Santa Miami:
Thanks Marco! I had a great time!
Santa Miami attended our Holiday Christmas Sessions. He truly outdid himself ! he was by far the best part of our holiday sessions! Staying in character & engaging with each and every child 100 % of the time. Helping us capture REAL SMILES and emotions from every child, making us photographers so incredibly happy! He is amazing with the children and not to mention very photogenic. We got amazing photographs all thanks to Santa Miami . We are so very grateful to have had him & sure can't wait to work with him again !
HANDS DOWN THE BEST SANTA! WE RECOMMEND HIM 110% !
I am happy to give Santa Miami my highest recommendation.
I booked Santa to attend my daughter's fourth birthday. The theme was breakfast with Santa. Before the event Santa, communicated with me several times. He even asked me to give him details about the children attending the party so he could be more convincing. When my daughter sat on his lap, he congratulated her for being a great big sister. Then, in her ear, he whispered that she should stop using a pacifier. She has been pacifier-free since.
Arrival-He arrived on time.
Appearance-He was entirely authentic. His Santa suit, boots, and bag were impeccable and clean. His beard is real and well-groomed.
Disposition- He never broke character. He is soft spoken and did not scare any of the children.
each child had an individual, personalized chat with Santa
read a book
sat for unlimited photos with every party guest
mingled with guests
decorated cookies with kids,
gave each kid a little present.
He brought his own supplies.
The children were amazed and the parents were delighted. All of our friends complimented Santa and wanted his contact information to book him for future events.
He made my daughter's birthday so special and unforgettable.
Santa Miami was our Santa for our Christmas Party. He was GREAT!! His costume was superb and his beard is REAL! He was on time...even alittle early and spent the entire time talking and giving each child their special gift. He gave each child special attention and there were smiles on all their faces. He remembered ALL the details of each child. All the parents commented on how great he was!! Really wonderful.
We definitely recommend Santa Miami. He was sweet with the children; listened to each and every one. He was great!

I require a deposit of 50% to reserve my time. If you can let me know two weeks in advance if you have to cancel, I will refund the deposit. Two weeks is usually long enough for me to find an alternative. Anything shorter than that I still will still try to rebook the timeslot and if I can find another event I will refund your deposit. If I cannot however, it will be nonrefundable.
