Very Disappointed This Hotel doesn't have any at advantages besides it's location South Beach Miami the neighborhood it's great just when you check in make sure to fake your smile because everyone that works in this hotel is fake. The staff literally treats you like animal. Rooms are small and dirty hotel needs an upgrade unlike Delano or SLS wich... More

Arrived to the hotel today. Check in was very fast and easy. Staff very attentive. The rooms and facilities are definitely not near the Ritz Carlton standards. The most shocking thing is they charge for umbrellas on the beach!!!???? I always stay in 5 star hotels all over the world and I have never been charged for a beach umbrella,... More

I have just returned from a two night stay (16/18August) at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. I used the reviews to help me book the hotel and wanted to share my thoughts upon returning. This is an exceptional hotel, which is equally if not better than the 5star hotels I have stayed at in London,eg the Langham. I do not understand... More

The hotel was in a good location. It was close to the beach and close to majority of the entertainment there. I would have to rate our stay some what below average because concierge are not the most helpful people there. I think they really try and want to help, but aren't the smartest nor average people around. I will... More

I loved this Ritz property. The location was perfect. We didn't need a car. It is located at the end of Lincoln Dr. The pool was great. We enjoyed relaxing by the pool. The staff would pass little treats out periodically - frozen grapes, smoothies, chips, etc. The poolside service was pretty good too. The beach was good too. We... More

Majority of staff were helpful, especially the concierge. However was not bowled over by anything, the hotel lacks atmosphere. Beds & bathrooms comfortable & spacious as always with Ritz Carlton but would not choose to stay here again as it is pretty soulless

Before I booked this hotel I read the most recent reviews and I was a bit surprised to see that some people did not like the hotel or more specifically many of the travellers who typically stay at a Ritz Carlton were not impressed. Having never stayed at a Ritz before I thought the hotel was quite good and I... More

We had a short 4 day trip from the UK to South Beach in March. Everything I read about the service and location was correct. Lovely people, exceptional service, always helpful, wonderful location and we could not have asked for more. Short walk to Ocean Drive. Also no resort charge. We were going to stay in a 4 star hotel... More

What an amazing place. Club level upgrade was phenomenal. The food was amazing and the concierge was very helpful. Located on the best part of Miami's South Beach and short walk away from the Ocean Drive where fun never stops.

I do not understand some of the negative reviews on the hotel. The service is exceptional, from the time you enter until the time you leave. Everyone working for the Ritz is friendly and always says hello. The front desk is friendly and they get you checked in quickly. They have a beautiful pool with someone always around to take... More
