“Good but maybe does not worth the money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

This hotel has beautiful rooms and excellent service, however in my view it lacks the wow factor i have found in other hotels this level of prices and reputation. The beeakfast for example, is subpar both in variety and in the room where it is served. The beach area is so so in its design, does not show all the hype that has been made about this new venue. I think, unless you need to be at the beach, the Mandarin is a better choice in miami for a luxury stay.

...it might approximate the vibe of staying at the st. regis bal harbour. the staff is remarkably friendly and relaxed, like they were so excited to share their awesome hotel and city with us. the room is gorgeous, the gym is rad, the pools are heated, and the whole place embraces the ocean, so that you always kind of feel like you are on the beach, even if (like when we were there) it's a little too chilly to be lounging by the sea. i wish i could afford to move in...

We stayed at the St. Regis Bal Harbour for our 10 year wedding anniversary. It was just the two of us - no kids - and we were thrilled to be staying at this beautiful resort. There were some hiccups with our check-in and late check-out which were not resolved and very disappointing but we were promised they would make it up to us upon our return at a later date. I'll try to hold them to that promise! We are loyal SPG Platinum members and even though it was our anniversary - which we mentioned when making the reservation- there was not even a mention of our anniversary. Nothing.
The resort itself is beautiful. Very modern and elegant. The rooms are amazing - very spacious and well appointed with very large balconies offering a perfect view. Service seemed slow but it was Spring Break so we figured they were simply overbooked. We didn't spend much time at the pool but it was very busy and looked nice. We spent our time mostly on the beach while we were there and it was impeccable. Fantastic service on the beach - umbrellas, chairs, towels - even complimentary sun screen. Sadly, the famous butler service which we have enjoyed at other St. Regis properties was nonexistent. Even requesting a small item like a curling iron to be brought up to the room for an hour was not fulfilled - even with a salon on site. Other than that, a very nice getaway in a beautiful location.

We had a beautiful suite..incredible..but the maid knocked at 5 and we told her that we would be out of the room at 7. However, she did not show up until 10:30 ..when we were already in for the night. . . for turndown service etc.
Would have expected better in a hotel of this class.
Breakfast buffet was great and great service.

I was here for a wedding ( the only way I would be able to afford the hotel lol ) and the wedding rate was OK. It was the best night ever!!!! Our room was huge and the balcony even bigger!!! The room service was amazing ( got the turkey club and they granola and yogurt ) and the beds were sooooo comfy! You could watch TV from the bathtub, everything was perfect.

The beach is great and they are very accommodating. Beach chairs are super comfortable and they bring around free smoothie samples and fresh fruit. Amazing amazing!

Room Tip: I'm sure all the rooms are amazing

Spent a week at this gorgeous resort escaping the January cold of Atlantic Canada. Very impressive property, very impressive service! We have stayed at several St Regis Hotels in America and Europe and the service here is as good as it gets! From the moment you walk in and are met with a glass of welcome champagne by Lenny the Lobby Butler, you are just getting a taste of what's to come. Not only is the service excellent but friendly as well (very important to us).The modern decor is very attractive with plenty of bling, crystal and silver contrasting with the gorgeous deep purple orchids! The state of the art elevators are designed for total security providing access to hotel guests only and only to their specific floor. The rooms are very spacious (more of a junior suite) and well appointed. Large foyer with double closet, 4-piece bath with double sinks, deep soaker tub & oversized shower, mirror TV, separate powder room, plenty of travertine marble, large walk-in closet with the 1st room safe I've seen with a convenient interior light, spacious bedroom with king bed, desk, large flat screen TV, curved sectional seating, glass cocktail table, wet bar, power drapes & the latest in light controlling electronics. Huge balcony overlooking the ocean (as do all rooms) with 2 chaise lounges, ottomans and table & chairs for dining al fresco. Beach is not huge but lovely fine sand and the beach butlers wait on you hand & foot offering drinks, lunch, suntan lotion, cooling spritz, etc. Ocean temperatures in January were perfect, warm but still refreshing. There are 2 pools; one for families with children and one for adults only. Adult pool is very quiet as most people seem to prefer the beach. Bar & light lunch available nearby or from the pool butlers. Spa is excellent 5-star with well-trained professional staff offering a nice selection of treatments. Atlántico is open for a la carte breakfasts or buffet/brunch which is complimentary for Platinum SPG members as well as other nice Platinum perks. Everything about this property is 1st class but the crowning glory is the J & G Grill!!! Resident Chef de Cuisine Richard Gras is absolutely Fantastic! What a gift! On most trips we may eat 2 or 3 times a week at the hotel restaurant if it's good and the other nights we experiment around town. This chef is soooo good we ate here every single night! It didn't matter what we tried it was prepared to perfection! We highly recommend this resort and especially Chef Richard Gras, looking forward to a return visit!

Room Tip: All rooms have a fantastic ocean view. SPG Platinum guests be preparred that you will not be upgrad...

This is a great place for a vacation. The property is beautiful. It's luxurious and hip, while making families feel welcome. The kids pool is fun for youngsters, and there is an adult-only pool, which is good for when the kids are in Sea Turtle Club. Speaking of the pool, the villas are an incredible treat. They come with their own butler. Ours was Ed, who takes the cake for being the most congenial, guest-experience centered, proactive hospitality industry employee, that I have ever met. The staff at the Sea Turtle Club could not be more friendly and welcoming to kids and their parents. Misty is fabulous. At one point, Christina invited my kids, who were attending Sea School in the afternoon, to play with her group that was in the pool in the morning. The employees, from the doorman to the pool staff, must love their jobs, as they always greet one with a smile and a pleasantry. Don't miss having at least one room service breakfast on your balcony or a run or walk on that perfect beach path. Also, I am a germ phobe, and this is one of the cleanest hotels in which I've stayed. One of the best vacations I ever have had thanks to the beautiful beach, stunning and swank property and exceptional service.
