“Excellent Hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

The hotel is beautiful and the location is ideal. The kids (2 teenage girls) actually enjoyed this vacation, the rooms overlooked the beach and the pool, and we were walking distance to many restaurants and shops. The only thing about the rooms was that you could hear the people in other rooms and what was going on outside, but you don't go to south beach for a quiet vacation. Alin at the bar was wonderful, she suggested one of the best restaurants we've been to in a long time, Ola! The pool staff and the concierge were also very good. Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony.

I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation for the staff that operates and maintains the beach at the Ritz-Carlton, South Beach in Miami Florida. The entire staff; Chris Pascual, Jonathan Rivera, Martin Cadet and Caroline Setragani are all to be commended on the outstanding service that they provided for my wife and I. Jonathan and Caroline always greeted us with warm welcomes. Chris was extremely generous and always made sure that we were well taken care of, and Martin in particular always went above and beyond to insure we had everything we needed and were as comfortable as could be. My wife and I want to make sure that the "Powers That Be" know of the quality of all of them and we thank them for helping to make our stay most enjoyable.

Stayed in a luxury full ocean view room for less than $500. The hotel is perfectly located for the beach, the Lincoln Promenade, and the hot spots in South Beach. The beach bar is right on the beach walk with its never ending people watching. But, the Ritz is just a fancy Marriott, therefore everything but the room is overpriced, e.g. drinks ($17 for a tropical), hospitality bar, internet (not free), food ($64 for a small salmon filet), business services ($1 a printed page). Being an older building, the rooms are not well insulated so you can hear your neighbors speaking in normal voices, so remember to whisper.

Our flight was delayed on the return from Jamaica and we ended up spending a night at this beautiful hotel located in South Beach. The rooms were clean and beautiful and the beds to die for. Everyone was very friendly with no less than four to five people greeting you by name upon entering and exiting the hotel. The food was excellent and the pool is clean and beautiful overlooking the beach. This is a classy hotel with a lot of European visitors and not what I would consider to be a party hotel. If you are looking for service above and beyond the expected and a romantic and/or good place to visit South Beach with your family...this is the place to stay.

I stayed at the Ritz Carlton South Beach with my mom for her birthday and it was an amazing experience. The hotel staff went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. When we first arrived they gave us an envelope with a letter inside that said happy birthday to my mom and hope you have a great mother/daughter weekend! Also, they included a gift (two wonderful Ritz Carlton beach bags). This was very thoughtful of them. The pool area is so nice and the staff come around and give you complimentary snacks all day. Everyone is very helpful and friendly and do everything they can fo you. I would come back and stay at this hotel in a minute.

Room Tip: Get a high floor with a pool or beach view
