“Amazing property!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

If you are looking for a place to retreat and simply focus on strengthening your mind, body and spirit. This is the place for you. Be as active as you want or not. But definitely enjoy the many amenities the hotel has to offer. Aquavana is truly water heaven and the classes have the best instructors. It's also nice to be in a place where everyone (guests and workers) are happy that they are there.

Room Tip: The higher floors (i.e. 7th floor up), usually have wonderful views. So save the extra $s you would...

This was our second stay at this property. We did a mother daughter long weekend for my birthday. We love the classes ( although we noticed that this year there seemed to be less cardio and more yoga and conditioning) and like to try different instructors. It was nice to break up our workouts with time at the beach. The beach is very nice and removed from the hustle and bustle of South Beach and Miami Beach by being a bit further away. The downside is that you need to take a taxi or drive everywhere, the upside is that on property you do have more privacy. NIce pop up boutique jewelry event while we were there. Food is ok. It is a fun girls trip! Hang at the upper pool....very private. Service overall is good, a few glitches in the shop with an overcharge, but it was finally rectified. We would like to try the Tucson and Berkshire properties.

Room Tip: Avoid going Memorial Day Weekend.

This was our first stay at a Canyon Ranch and it could not have been a better place to rest and relax. The rooms are large, extremely clean and well equipped with many amenities. The grounds are beautiful and meticulously maintained. The classes are fun, the gym is the cleanest I have ever seen and the spa was amazing. Everyone on staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We will definitely be going back!

I read a previous review which was really off track! Canyon Ranch is one of the best in Miami.
The staff starting from the doorman, bellmen,frontdesk and the concierge were all very attentive and helpful.

I had the pleasure of speaking with the concierge Randy and Chauncey who were on point with information and recommendations for dinner and attractions for the children. they were engaging and very informative with the number of questions we had since this was our first and will not be our last visit because of the great service.
For those negative comments do not pay attention to any of them.

Room Tip: High floor ocean view.

I booked a staycation at the Canyon Ranch the first weekend in August and was just elated! Every encounter with the staff was incredible – at the front desk, concierge, spa, restaurant, and activities.
Incredibly designed, large, super clean rooms (actually one bedroom suites), and turndown was on point both nights. Since the hotel has a kitchen, you can walk across the street into the Publix and get basic food and drinks for the room.
The staff in the activities department were inspiring and such an asset to the hotel – Leah (yoga) and Tamara (Zumba) were both terrific - Tamara is actually a Miami Heat dancer! In the spa KJ Anderson is a superstar (the most incredible point pressure massage!) and Tatiana is just lovely. At the spa everyone was gracious and helpful, even though it was busy as it was Miami Spa Month (each massage at $99 plus tax).
The beach set up is great with flags next to the lounge chairs for drink or food service.

I recently spent 4 nights/5 days at Canyon Ranch Miami with a friend of mine for a relaxing and fun beach vacation. The food was fine (it was healthy, so it was as tasty as it gets for what it was), the classes were fantastic and the spa was superb! Before leaving, I had read several reviews that said that the teachers were not helpful and that residents who are regulars at these classes made them difficult for those not living at Canyon Ranch. I found quite the opposite. The teachers were remarkable - one even crafting a water strength class for me since I couldn't swim but wanted to participate with my friend. The others were great in helping with alignment on poses and exercises, etc.
The only downside to the trip were the management, concierge and front desk staff. When we checked in, they put a hold on my card that was almost twice our entire charge for two people for 5 days. Since no one mentioned this to me at the time of check-in, my card was declined at dinner later that night. When we got back to the hotel and asked for help, they did change the card but seemed unconcerned that we were given incorrect information. Also, be sure to ask for your welcome bag upon arrival - we did not know to do that and ended up buying a bunch of bottled water from the grocery story across the street. Turns out, we were supposed to have received reusable bottles to use at the water machines around the campus. Finally, the concierge staff - we interacted with at least two separate staff members during our stay. One gave us incorrect directions on how to bike to South Beach and the other refused to help us find dinner reservations - instead preferring to talk about her most recent vacation while we were still trying to have ours!
Overall, it was very relaxing and I am likely to go back, but smarter this time. I loved that I could relax and do classes all day and then spend the evenings eating dinner and visiting South Beach - it was only about a $20 cab ride, depending on where you have them drop you off.

I spent one night and two days in this hotel, I had total relaxation!! The staff has very great attention to details, doorman Tommy and Ando are very accommodating and helpful. The check in is just cant be any smoother. The room is perfect, they even showed me to the different rooms for my considerations. The spa, health and fitness centre is just amazing, i went for sauna three times during my stay - just like the place so much. And finally, the beach!! I have no words to describe, absolutely fabulous!

Room Tip: If you want a total sea view, choose the ocean front, you will have the great view for the sun rise...
