“Outstanding property”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Impeccable service, great decor, high quality rooms and a fabulous view of the Biscayne Bay makes this one of the best properties I have stayed in. Great location on Brickell Key, away from busyness of South Beach and Downtown, but with quick access to both. There isn't an area that I could point out and say that this property needs to significantly improve on - overall, an outstanding property.

A few friends and I stayed at the Mandarin Oriental Miami, because we wanted to stay away from the smaller South Beach hotels and crazy crowds. We were not disappointed. When we arrived at the hotel around 1pm, we were a little put off that we werent able to check in early but were told that because the Miami Heat just made the NBA finals, the hotel was completely full. Probably because the media and Spurs were all filing into the city. Also, it just so happens that the Spanish National Football (soccer) team was also staying at the hotel. So...celebrities and athletes galore.
The hotel was very accomodating and suggested we sit by the pool for some food and drinks while we waited for our room. 1st round on the Mandarin, of course. They just a sour situation into a positive and it was a great start to our trip. Drinks are easily $16-$20 each.
The hotel is very clean, modern and the service is excellent. Pool and lounge areas have great views and is not overly crowded. If you just go for the spa alone, it's worth it. They treat you like a million bucks. It's a great place to stay to get away from the typical South Beach scene.

We stayed at Mandarin Oriental Miami for second time and love the hotel. We usually try to pick a hotel which is calm and quiet enough for perfect relaxation. The location is ideal, it's close to Miami Beach but still located in more quiet neighbourhood. The pool isn't the biggest possible but nice anyway. We didn't experience any crowd so we were abe to get sunbeds at any time of the day. The pool bar is very nice and welcoming and serves really good dishes. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and most importantly quiet. I highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Bay view rooms are spacious and have a nice view.

All is very nice and perfect, only thing: no free WIFI and no free Business Center Internet Access. We needed to print our flighttickets and had to pay 6 USD for access and 0.75 per printed page. Bit dissapointing for a hotel on this level. Besides> nice rooms, nice location, friendly.

I stayed at the Mandarin Oriental over 10 years ago on business for a few days and was extremely impressed. Returned last week for vacation and found the same professional approach to guests. From the moment we arrived (from UK) to check in to the moment we left, everything was first class.

Front Desk, Concierge and "Front Door" always happy to assist, with a smile. Pool staff very accommodating, always happy to see you, remember who you are. Same too with restaurant for both breakfast and dinner. very, very happy all round. Well done. We hope to see you again in the not too distant future !!

You pay the money you get what you pay for, this is 5 star from start to finish.
From the time you step through the door you are looked after and pampered and spoilt, the gym is something else, the pool is fab and the service you could not find better.

Room Tip: Get a top floor room the views are great and its quiet

What to say about this hotel?
Everything is perfect.
Colin, the guest receptionist, is very kind.
We celebrated our 10th anniversary, and they made everything possible to spoil us.
The breakfast is amazing, the staff is amazing, always ready.

PERFECT
