“Excellent for toddlers”
Reviewed March 5, 2006

We just returned from this Beautiful Hotel. We took a four day weekend with out 2 1/2 year old daughter and the trip could not have been better. The the pools and beach were ideal for small children, especially the pool with the zero walk in edge. Kids could walk in to the depth they felt most comfortable without jumping in. The pools while not large are scaled appropriately to the hotel, which promoted an intimate feel. Our room was equiped with a kitchenette complete with a fridge, 2 burner range and microwave even though it was not a suite. This was very practical feature for traveling with a toddler, and totally unexpected in a luxury hotel. The only criticism was that the dining options at the hotel itself were limited to the informal beach side restaurant or fine-dining. But it was a quick drive to Miami Beach for a very wide range of dining options.
We are looking forward to coming back next year.

We stayed at the Ritz during February school break and were delighted when we drove up to the beautiful entrance. We arrived in the early evening and were disappointed that we were unable to get into any of the restaurants in the hotel. Each morning regardless of how early we rose we were unable to get a chair around the pool, it seems that people reserve them the night before so it is impossible to get close enough to the pool to feel comfortable letting your child go in. I did not find the staff that friendly although never rude. The room was O.K. , of course there was no water pressure but I find this often in hotels. A soda at the pool ( small plastic cup) costs ten dollars which seemed alot to me. We didn't feel it was worth the money at all and would not go back.

The Ritz Key Biscayne is one of the loveliest hotels I've stayed in. The property is immaculate, rooms are spacious and clean and the service is the best of anywhere in the world. Hotel staff greets you by name and every want is catered to. Whiskey bar is a great place for a drink. I look forward to every visit.

Key Biscayne still has some signs of the damage done by Hurricane Wilma, but the Ritz is in perfect condition. The weather in January was near 80, so it made a perfect respite from winter. Hotel staff were uniformly attentive and prompt; although I normally resent it, I didn't mind the fact that tips were automatically added everywhere but the bar because the service was always so good. Food was not inexpensive, but every morsel was fabulous - we ate all but one dinner in the hotel over a 5-day period and wish we'd eaten in that night, too. (Lynda B's Steakhouse was a disappointment.) The Ritz's Friday night seafood buffet was especially fabulous. Spa was very nice, especially the steam room and massage. The wind and jellyfish made ocean swimming a bad choice, but the beach is terrific and both pools were lovely, as well. What a great way to spend a few mid-winter days... cozy, comfortable and pampered at the Key Biscayne Ritz. Went to South Beach for a few hours, but came right back and had no interest in leaving again.

Very nice hotel, but had a un pleasant experience in the restaurant. Me and my husband got there for an early dinner and the waiter kept on getting the plates and forks to set up the tables with out any consideration if it was bothering us. Well, that was the only thing that I did not like.

After we went past the security checkpoint and provided our names, every staff member greated us by our names. It was impressive and made us feel famous. You request anything and the response is always "my pleasure". The spa's setting alone is worth seeing, the massage was wonderful. The yoga class was outside overlooking the beach. The pool experience was enhanced when they served complimentary bananas/strawberries skewers...nice touch. We left so relaxed.
