AMAZING stay in May at the Mandarin Oriental. We arrived VERY early in the morning and while our room was not ready the Front desk immediately offered us a complimentary breakfast which was EXQUISITE and was really what we needed after being up before dawn. From the moment we checked in it was the attention to detail in everything that stood out.
The room itself was EXACTLY as advertised and the view of downtown and the ocean was amazing. We used the balcony every day. The private beach on the property was wonderful. If you are looking for noise and hustle and bustle then you probably want to stay somewhere right in south beach but if you want somewhere close to anything you may want to do including great bars and restaurants and somewhere to get away from it all yet be in the thick of things when you choose to this is the place for you.
The spa was excellent and the restaurants in the hotel were also excellent but you have quick and easy access to all areas of Miami if you want to explore.
Thank you so much to everyone for delivering exactly what we wanted with all of the extras that we did not expect but were thrilled to find.
