5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Stayed a week for work reasons/in-hotel team meeting. Stepping out of a lift to see only 3 doors (2 rooms & 1 stairs) is a surprising first time experience! Lovely rooms, great views, great staff & service, excellent facilities, good food. Highly recommended if you can get a good rate. Didn't really have time to experience the surroundings but there seemed to be plenty in walking/biking distance to start with. Some of the team walked a short distance to a local marina for a great afternoon fishing trip. Meeting room facilities were good for our ~25 heads. Only tiny thing I can pick on, I should have asked earlier for a better light over the desk area (for working, the room lights were somewhat dull). Next time.

Room Tip: North facing rooms give you a view of the northern parks & beaches and charter boats coming and...

Been in this hotel a few times before it was transformed into the Ritz Carlton and it is now better than ever. The food and service have (especially room service) have improved dramatically. The beach has also been widened and is even more beautiful. The views are breathtaking! If you are a sun lover then ask for the Oletta tower end suites with the wrap around terrace that faces west with sun all afternoon. The other units face north and don't get much sun. Make sure to request pool chairs on the terrace and enjoy the sun hours later than everyone else. Expensive but you get what you pay for!

Best oceanfront location in Bal Harbour with amazing ocean, intracoastal and city views. A great alternative to the frenzy of South Beach, this hotel is newly under Ritz-Carlton management and the improvements in service and facilities are quite noticeable. Convenient to world class shopping, restaurants and amazing beaches as well as boating and many outdoor activities. Beautifully decorated and appointed rooms are generous in size, all with balconies to enjoy the views. This luxury resort offers quiet and relaxation...perfect for couples and families looking for a quick beach break. Just don't expect the nightlife options available at the other end of the island (Lincoln Road and South Beach) which are only fifteen minutes away by car.

Room Tip: Rooms facing north have amazing ocean and intracoastal views. Lower floors closest to the Haulover B...

I am used to go to that hotel for some time, but it was not a Ritz until recently. For me, it's the best hotel in that region. The staff is very kind and all the ambiance is amazing. The rooms are very comfortable and the bathroom with a beautiful view. Certainly I will come back there.
I think they could improve the restaurant for dinner, to make it more special.

Dear Traveler,

My loved one and I spent an amazing week at the Ritz Carlton in Bal Harbour ringing in the New Year. This pet friendly, jewel of a hotel has a very residential feeling allowing many of the guests to socialize with each other. The Ritz for New Years Eve organized a Monte Carlo night. It reminded me of the grand elegant casino days of a time gone by. In addition, there was entertainment and dancing. One room hosted a live band and the terrace offered sounds from a very talented DJ. There was something for everyone. Every individual who attended was beautifully dressed in proper cocktail attire. The hotel prepared a delicious prefix dinner which included a bottle of champagne at midnight and full open bar of top shelf spirits throughout the evening.

At the stroke of Midnight, the Village of Bal Harbour for the first time (sure to become a yearly tradition), organized a spectacular fire work display. The position at the end of the pier gave the guests of the Ritz a Birdseye view to enjoy. It felt like you were sitting under falling stars.

I would like to send out a special thank you to the entire staff of the Ritz Carlton for paying excellent attention to every single detail and making our holiday such a memorable one. I highly recommend you visit this resort property. I am certain you too will have a great time.

Safe Travels,

Anthony V.

An expensive disappointment is the best that I can say. My wife had difficulty scheduling a massage and the yoga class was cancelled without notice. Dry cleaning was supposed to be returned first thing in the AM, but I had to call for it and was almost late for a meeting.

On the other hand, my children enjoyed to beach immensely. The pool was warm and fun for them.

The service here was impeccable from start to finish. Place was beautiful and well maintained. Other places could learn from how they train the staff. Can't go wrong by staying here and would come again in a minute
