“Beautiful & quiet!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Beautiful hotel, secluded from the Miami nightlife & small quaint beach. We enjoyed our short stay here but can get quite expensive. $20 Mojitos were very good but costly after a few. :)
Would definitely go back, rooms were comfortable & spacious. Have Gino the Bartender, make you one of his crazy concoctions, best around!!

We were a bit weary of coming here as it is 20 minutes away from downtown Miami but it is definitely worth the drive. The service here is unsurpassable and the beach is beautiful. The rooms are clean too. The only real downside is the value for money. A MUST GO!

Room Tip: Pick a room with ocean view, its worth it.

Stayed here for 2 nights with my wife. This hotel is great. Large rooms, updated with large bathrooms and balcony. Great location in Key Biscayne away from the hustle and bustle. Great walks with good nearby restaurants all within walking distance.
We did not eat at the hotel. Reviews on TripAdvisor from previous guests were not very flattering about the food.

Gardens are beautiful and the beach goes on forever. There are several pools and one reserved for adults only.

Service is friendly and very helpful

So what's not to like?

Paying for WiFi when the room rate is $660 per night.
$32 per day for Valet parking ( there was no other choice ).Just felt they were nickel and diming me for extras that should be included in the room rate.

We stayed here for 4 nights in November. The rooms are huge and offer great views. We loved the rum bar and the italian resteraunt very much. The Spa is very nice and they have very excellent therapists. Went for a massage every day. The only draw back is you are much away from South Beach. This place is for people who want to be in a recluse environment.

The check in process was complicated, there were people milling around arguing with the front desk about room reservations and what they were promised. The front desk was overwhelmed and no one was accepting responsibility.

Since you are captive at the hotel, the food prices were off the charts. Lunch for my wife and I which was Hummis, a bowl of gazbacho, one bloody mary and one mojito, came to $78.00! More than anticipated. The food quality was average even for breakfast.

I suppose if you are going to be in that area of Florida you can anticipate high costs, but some of it was ridiculous for the level of service and quality. The bed was not as good as the other Ritz Cartons we have stayed at in the past.

This hotel has an amazing beach, great food, people are just amazing. The rooms have a great view of the ocean( recommended is ocean view front) very spacious and very clean.
The swimming pool and ocean temperature was just right! If u want to go when it's quiet the best time is July and August!
September- May: the staff get too busy!
People at the bar were so friendly!
I recommended my sister and she went there n loved it too!

Great hotel. An ideal spot if you love the shops, bars and restaurants of South Beach, but need to get away from the madness. Key Biscayne was perfect for us: reserved, lovely and quiet yet only 10-15 minutes from South Beach. The hotel has beautiful grounds; a great pool and beach; excellent service; nice rooms. We paid extra for the concierge level, which featured delicious foods and beverages for breakfast, lunch, happy hour, and dessert time. Our 15-year-old son loved it as well. We cannot wait to go back!
