We had spent a few days at the Loewes in Miami Beach which was really noisy so it was a joy to get to the Mandarin Oriental and be able to actually relax.
The hotel is located on Brickell Key, a tiny private island that's linked to the mainland by a short road. So, you get the luxury of being away from the hustle and bustle of the city whilst at the same time being able to walk (or get a free shuttle) to the mainland. Within a mile or so, you'll find Mary Brickell Village where there are countless restaurants, bars, clothing stores and a supermarket.
We had a very spacious room with a big bathroom and a great balcony with a view across to the city.
The pool is not the biggest you've ever seen but it was never packed and it was just really comfortable and relaxing. The staff on hand were great and there was plenty of complimentary water and fruit to keep you hydrated. There is also a man made beach with it's own iguanas which is a nice touch and even more relaxing as few people seem to use it. Obviously there's no swimming there but the pool is close by if you want a dip.
My only gripe is that I don't think hotels should be charging for wifi when you spend a fortune on a room.
