I stayed at the Ritz with a bachelorette party this past weekend. The service was wonderful, clean rooms, good food, extremely friendly staff, etc. The Ritz made you feel welcome and were very accomodating. We got a decent deal because it is the off season. Worth every penny. Can't wait to go back!

We have stayed at this hotel serveral times since it opened. It is a relatively new hotel in a renovated older building. if you don't look at the outside of the property, you would never feel that it was a renovation. The interiors are well done, except for a few small issues where it is obvious they did the best they can do with the original space...and would have done differently with new construction.

The location is a little bit of a walk from Ocean Drive and the main restaurant and people watching area, but you have three choices of paths to get there...the beach, the beach "boardwalk" (actually a very nice brick walkway along the beach) or the street. All can be an interesting walk and we highly recommend trying all three.

The hotel is directly across the street from the Lincoln Road shopping, restaurant and entertainment district...which we don't find as attractive as Ocean Drive, but for those who enjoy this area, the location can't be better.

The only small disappointment we had was that it took 2 hours and four phone calls to get our luggage to our room after it was promised at check in in 10 minutes. Another comment...we stayed here this time in September and received a fantastic off season rate...but so did everyone else and the typical guest was not a typical Ritz guest as a result of the lower cost. For example, the pool area was much more loud with much more of a party atmosphere than is normal for a Ritz and for this hotel.

Having driven to the Fontainebleau and had a less than thrilling experience (rude valet attendant/manager, surly reception desk) we discovered a problem with our booking. As we had seen enough of the Fontainebleau in the first 20 minutes we hot footed it to the Ritz Carlton where the service was excellent, the staff accommodating and the Ritz full-on experience still shining brightly. We are back at our desks today plotting another visit to our favourite hotel chain and with The Ritz Carlton South Beach being up there with our favourites. This hotel with it's beach/pool service and lovely rooms with great staff is a brilliant place, close enough to Ocean Drive to walk there but far enough away to relax.

Let me keep this short and succinct - My wife and daughters (4 & 20) stayed here for 16 days from 26th August. If it were poor I'd be the first to review it as such. The fact is that this hotel is every bit as fabulous as any other City Ritz Carlton I've stayed at. The staff are outstanding and there was little to fault. Of the complainants below, they sincerely must have been staying at a different hotel to the one we were at. Of one reviewers suggestion of "tiny rooms", I confirm that the reviewer must have cataracts in his eyes. The rooms are massive. Indeed, let me be clear that I did have an ocean front suite (so I expected a large room but I also bought the cheapest city~view single room for my daughter and it was sincerely massive with a fabulous bathroom. I'm at an age when I only stay at 5 star properties and i hope this review is read in that context.

Fantastic service. Even though our stay was short, staff remembered us by name. The room was nice. This hotel was decorated more modern than other Ritz hotels we have stayed at. The beach was beautiful and the views were gorgeous. We were upgraded without asking! A perfect Labor Day get- a -way!
