“Miami break”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

Fabulous Hotel next to the beach. We stayed for 2 nights in April before our cruise. The rooms were spotlessly clean, beds comfortable and an added bonus of a mac in each room with free internet access. The restaurants were fairly pricey but the food was excellent. Biggest pool area I have ever seen with different pools to accommodate everyone, also ample sun loungers. The hotel has direct access to the beach and if you are able to walk along the boardwalk all the way to South Beach which at a leisurely pace took about an hour and a half. My older children went to LIV, the nightclub and said it was amazing! All staff were polite and helpful. Would have liked to have stayed longer.

Absolutely stunning hotel. The service was above and beyond, and the pool area was fantastic. We really enjoyed ourselves here, but just beware that it is extremely pricey once you check in. I have never had a $24 drink before, and while they were tasty, I feel that's a ridiculous price to pay. The staff at the steak restaurant were extremely sweet, and lots of fun, be sure and go there - you won't regret it!

I sent 3 nights at the Fontainebleau hotel and it was a beautiful hotel, recently remodeled and the staff was excellent. I ate in three of the restaurants and the food was perfectly cooked and presented well. It is very expensive but if you can afford it, the hotel is an excellent place to stay.

Room Tip: Get the higher rooms in the Chateau tower

This is a beautiful hotel! I had the best experience with the staff on the beach. The manager Edwin was very helpful, Evelyn, the server was very attentive, and Mitch set our chairs and umbrella in a great spot. Everything was perfect, and the Service was amazing. Defininately recommend to my friends

Room Tip: Pick for ocean view, it's great!

On the paper this place looks great and a fair price for a 4/5 stars hotel in Miami Beach. However, once you check in, costs add up very quick starting with the valet parking at $40 per day (if you need your car you then need 20 minutes and show all kind of papers), overpriced restaurants ($20 for an average glass of wine), more than $ 20 for a Burger. Not to talk about breakfast which is also overpriced and takes 40 minutes to be brought to the room. This is somehow understandable as this place is so huge that they may not have enough personnel. There are 3 nice swimming pools although you would need to get there at 7 am to get a chair.
However, we had an upgrade but whenever we asked for a late check out, they "generously" extended it to 12 instead of 11 am
Conclusion, I don't recommend this place unless you want to be seen and tell your friends that you went to a hotel that spent $ 1 Billion to be renovated.

I hosted a 400+ person event last week at the Fontainebleau hotel and I honestly could not have asked for a better venue or staff to work with. Everything was absolutely amazing, from my very first experience with Karen Perryman (my sales rep) to onsite staff including Melissa Barcelo, Jake Eldridge, Colby, the ENTIRE banquets team (esp. Javier & Hassan) and the AV staff... the team themselves made each and every aspect of our experience perfect. The hotel was not only beautiful, but had everything I needed to make the experience for my attendees incredible. The meeting space is perfect and located in one central location, which made it easy for my attendees to navigate through. The reception sites on property exceeded my expectations. We welcomed our guests at La Cote, an oceanfront bar and restaurant, that made for amazing pictures and great networking and ended the event at LIV which was nothing less than perfect. My attendees raved about their experience with the hotel and the staff, and I will definitely look at booking another event there. I would recommend this venue to anyone looking to book a corporate event, or any personal stay.

Room Tip: If you are planning a meeting, try and book your hotel room in the Versailles tower.

A group of us girls celebrated our birthdays at the Fontainebleau pool with a few of our little ones. The Team was incredible, Richard Torres, Giani, and Pamela to name a few. They treated us as VIP as we rented 2 beds, had 6 lounge chairs, umbrellas, babysitter, delicious food, Perrier-Jouet Champagne, PAVAN Sangria (all natural no sugar added!). I recommend everyone to celebrate at FBleau, with kids or without. They have an amazing program with top notch sitters so little ones can splash in the pool and the big kids can play near the refreshments! The Suite was perfect and guest services were on top of our many requests. Hakkasan and Scarpetta were also flawless as usual and it's not a complete review unless I give a shout out to the Valet, top notch. Thank you Fontainebleau team for making an amazing experience for our birthdays, Mother's Day, and any day... Coming from a local.
