One of my favorite hotels to stay. From the gorgeous pool to the unreal gym to the beautiful marble floor to the phenomenal restaurants there is no better place to stay on Miami Beach.

Make sure you check out the view from the Gym.

In early July 2012 I visited the Ft. bleau as a guest for the "iheart radio" concert. I was very confused as to where to go, as the hotel is so big and beautiful, you can easily get lost. There were several connections to the event blocked or for security reasons and I noticed a young gentlemen who was speaking with someone in the lobby hallway that was dressed properly as a hotel manager, I approached and asked if I could kindly interrupt for help. As he completely turned around, I noticed that he was familiar and realized it was from my amazing stay with girlfriends years ago at the Raleigh Hotel in south beach. As he was then a gracious host and very hospitable, he is so much more today. Eli Kostbar is by far an outstanding person when it comes to his job making sure guests like myself have had an amazing vacation, with no questions asked.

Room Tip: Ocean and Pool view of course!

If youve stayed at FB before, you'll understand what I'm saying :: it's about the staff! There are countless beautiful hotels and resorts in Miami and SoBe, no doubt. They amount to nothing more than four well-designed walls that fall flat without a great personable staff; by that, 'familiar faces,' staff who make the place come alive. People who are behind the scenes making it happen. I've stayed at FB about six times, front desk -- outside bartenders (Journey in particular!) -- LIV staff -- hotel managers (Eli Kostbar in particular!), these guys make it happen.

The sneaky thing is -- you don't leave the property its so completely self-contained. You don't have to, you dont really want to.

Room Tip: Rooms on the Collins St side will be quieter but dont face the Ocean. Rooms over the pool area, faci...

It was my first time in Miami and I was blown away with the beauty of Fountainebleau. The chandeliers were gorgeous! Easy access to the beach, beautiful pool area and incredible amenities through out the property. My room was ideally located overlooking the resort and the ocean. Every morning the view was perfect. The staff was fantastic! Gina at the front desk was very professional and attentive at check in. Michele in lobby was a delight, she greeted everyone in sight! Erik, the bell captain, was sweet as pie and definitely made the wait time on the valet pass by quickly. Claudia at Concierge was also wonderful. She provided great information for around the city and was very informative. I definitely recommend this property, don't miss out on a great opportunity if you have it!

I have stayed at this location numerous times. This hotel is top of the line. The rooms are spacious and clean, There are many amenities at this location from several pools, pool bars, spa, gym, several restaurants and top clubs. While there at the Fontainebleu the staff went over and above with their top notch service. While out by the pool the manager David Arraya came out in his suit to check on the guest and staff. Hot as it was, he was still outside making sure everyone was taking care of. He even took the time to ask us how we were and if we needed anything. I would stay at this hotel again if I'm ever in the area.
