We booked two rooms for a weekend stay in Miami. My husband and sons spent the day at football camp at the U and I spent more than I would usually spend on our rooms so that the girls and I could enjoy a day at the incredible pool that I saw in the online pictures. Wow,were we disappointed when we got to the pool! It had rained the night before and the pads were left on the lounge chairs. They were old, moldy looking and sopping wet! A nice pool attendant tried to help us with lounge covers but that did us little good. We were stuck with damp chairs all day. The pool area itself is filled with ugly, green mold growing everywhere. My older daughter is allergic to mold,so it made her feel bad and we ended up leaving after a few hours. We did have lunch at the pool bar and it was very nice and tasty, but an 8 oz drink cost me $17! The bathrooms in the rooms were very nice - best hotel shower I've had! But, I expected incredibly comfortable beds and linens from a Ritz and was, again, disappointed. Our bed was nothing special and had old linens. The other furniture in the rooms was comfortable , but dated. Even the grounds seemed a bit unkempt in this place. I guess I was expecting too much. My very first stay in a Ritz was a let down.
