My daughter and I just returned from a weekend at the Ritz Carlton South Beach. It was fabulous! The staff was very friendly and accomodating ... our room (oceanview with balcony on the club level) was incredible ... the food delicious -- my daughter loved the Americana fries that we ordered from pool service! The hotel is perfectly located on a beautiful beach ... close (but not TOO close) to the craziness of Ocean Drive. Children were very welcome here. All in all, a great weekend getaway!
