“Perfect location in SoBe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

I've stayed at a Ritz in Beaver Creek CO, and the South Beach locale, while an older property, does not deserve anything less than a fantastic rating! South Beach has many boutique hotels, but if you are looking for a hotel with an established rep, the Ritz is a great option!

The rooms are nice and spacious. We had an ocean view and pool view room on the 3rd floor. The service is the best part. The cabana staff and wait staff were incredible. A friend had a massage and she said it was amazing. The beach is also right across the walking path, so another added bonus!

A fantastic hotel in a great location!!

This was my second visit to the Ritz on South Beach. You cant beat the location but it comes with a pretty hefty price tag. The staff are very welcoming and definitely live up to the Ritz Carlton standards.
Our room was small but very clean and comfortable and the maid service was top notch. We didn't actually eat at any of the restaurants during our stay but room service was very good. Pool Area was very nice, it is however getting a little run down and worn looking since my last stay, thankfully it was not too crowded.

We would stay here again.

Room Tip: make sure you ask for a patio room if that is important for you.

Best Location. At the intersection of Collin Avenue & Lincoln Ave. near to Ocean Drive. Very Courteus Staff. Pool Side Restaurant - Bistro One has very good ambience. Room not upto the Ritz standard - Very basic not upto the mark. Nothing entertaining for family with Kids.

We traveled to Miami for our son's college graduation and decided to stay at the South Beach location. The service here was outstanding. We only ate at the hotel on one occasion-a light lunch at the outdoor restaurant and the food and drinks were wonderful.
The location can't be beat and, again, the staff really make the hotel what it is.

The service at the Ritz Carlton could not be better, knowing your name on arrival is pretty impressive. Navigating one's way to the poolside suites can be a bit confusing (especially arriving home at night after a few cocktails at the Soho House!!) and if one takes a detour through stairwells and corridors the paintwork and state of affairs can be telling of the hotel's age. Those spaces could be fun and full of bright graffiti of some kind. The club breakfast was delicious but once again the room is showing signs of age and wear and tear.
The room we had faced the pool and south and could not have been more comfortable, clean, pristine and fun. The balcony was a blessing late into the day after an exhausting day at the beach. The music around the pool is a blessing compared to the hip hop durge heard next door although for me No MUsic at all around a pool would be good. The development of this pool area has been tastefully done and the pool - mainly for young kids (during school vacation time) is well situated.
The location of the hotel and its proximity to Lincoln Ave and the beach is second to none and the beach staff were attentive - bright and well positioned. Bravo Ritz Carlton - to maintain your standards amongst many new comers is to be commended.

This is a perfect spot to stay on south beach. Location is great - can walk down to fun things to do at the SLS (Katsuya or Hyde) also has a great beach with chairs, food service, etc. Walking to shopping on Lincoln Road too. The pool seems to be crowded with lots of families. The rooms are very nice and spacious. I would love to stay again! (But it comes with the Ritz price tag so be aware)

Had a wonderful stay at this hotel in March.We were going to a wedding in Miami and decided to stay at South Beach.The location of the Ritz is ideal for restaurants and shops.The staff couldn't do enough for you, always offering there services and excellently too!
We stayed in the club level,which we thought was excellent value.You have breakfast,lunch,tea,drinks,canapes etc..and again the staff in there are very welcoming and make you feel like special guests.
We would stay there again.

Room Tip: Club level is worth it.
