Arrived here on Friday for a girls getaway and was not disappointed. Unlike the Ritz Key Biscayne, EVERYONE on the staff here is friendly and goes out of their way to be helpful. We were able to check in early, which was wonderful! The pool is warm and has an "infinity" feel to it. All of the pool staff were constantly checking in to see if we needed refills or water. The rooms were immaculate and spacious. I wasn't thrilled with the toiletries (Ritz Cayman has Bulgari that smells amazing), but shower and bathroom were large and well maintained. The location is quiet. If you are looking for party atmosphere, this is not the place. Coco walk is a 5 minute walk from the hotel, and has a nice selection of restaurants, although you will find some chains as well. We didn't eat in the hotel, but the breakfast looked excellent. South beach is about a 10-15 minute taxi away, and brickell is a bit closer. We found the construction in the area to kind of be the norm, as every neighborhood we visited was riddled with half finished buildings and cranes. So if that bothers you, Miami might not be your place. Other than that, ask for Giovanni in the main lobby, he have great suggestions and was very personable and helpful. A fantastic stay and highly recommended! Easy to access beach and other areas of Miami by taxi. We never paid more than $20. Definitely will be back.
