This place is very similar to the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo.Only super wealthy have access to the island. Definately not worth staying because prices are way too high.

This place is very reminiscent of the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo. Like that location, access is severely restricted to the wealthy. Unless you're a rich guest of the hotel, a resident, or a resident's guest, you can't even access the property. Like Ocean Reef, Fisher Island is self contained so rich reclusive residents never have to leave for... More

No more glasses, no more silverware, no more napkins explained the waiter "but it is not my fault . . . We just can't handle this many people." The Beach Club was a zoo where it literally took hours to get a table and get fed. When the food arrived haphazardly after several reminders, both the quality and presentation were... More

Fisher Island is a ferry ride across Government Cut - where the Port of Miami cruise ships exit and enter Miami. A very busy waterway minutes from South Beach...yet once you arrive...you are in paradise. Beautiful condos, homes, country club, beach, marina, restaurants and market. The main restaurant has one of the best chefs in the country! Life of the... More

You can't go on this island because it is a gated community but we rented a boat and we rode around the island there are much nicer homes in the area than I saw on Fisher island.

Why does Trip Advisor request a review of Fisher Island?! It's for millionaires only. Visitors can't go there.

The privacy and the serenity of this private island while minutes away from famous South Beach make this island a great place to live. Real Estate prices are cheaper than all of the very high end buildings in South Beach. Worth the time if you are considering a high end condo.

Liked the exclusivity of the island and being away from the hustle and bustle of Miami beach. Dislike you can't use any money at the restaurant or bar - if the member is not presently with you…you are stuck and can't order anything.

Well, it's pretty and all, and the ferry ride there is fun, but if you're not rolling, you might as well just drive on by. We visited for a party that was held there --the party was nice and the food was excellent, but as for the island, it just wasn't into us. When we went to the spa to... More

Interesting visit but not totally enthralling and younger children would not appreciate it. I find it embarrassing for the tour guides to ask you to tip them.
