Fontainebleau Miami Beach

Miami Beach, Miami

The hotel

The legendary Fontainebleau Miami Beach first opened its doors to the public in 1954, when the A-list celebs of the time — Elvis, Sinatra and the Rat Pack — liked to stay here. You can enjoy 22 oceanfront acres of a blend of Miami's golden era and stylish modern luxury. Take a dip in one of the 11 pools, and little ones will love the water play area. They'll also love the kids' camp, and while they're having the time of their lives, you can head to the spa and pamper yourself. All of this is topped off with nine different dining options, from sushi to pizzas, you're certainly in for a treat.

The visit did not disappoint again. The pool staff is exceptional. Starting with cabana check-in being greeted with morning smiles and jokes. To Luis,John Paul,Jason setting up our beds and attentively checking on us throughout the days. Then the constant cabana bedside manner from the ladies over the whole week. Each one on top of their duties and paying careful attention to my family. I cant thank each one enough, even when I wasn't in their section they stopped by to say hello and check on us. Camille, Emily, Paola, Tatiana, Natalie were awesome and made it a special experience. We come 3 times a year and this was the first time I felt compelled to write a review. We have stayed at some of the nicest hotels from London to Seattle and this a 5 star experience all around. Read less

Went on a girls trip and booked several rooms. We understood that this was a party hotel- that is what we were looking for! But when paying top rates for a hotel room we expected good service. The room has wet spots on the carpeting and hair in the shower upon arrival. At the pool the attendants wouldn’t help us find chairs and the bar staff at la cote was exceptionally rude, yet automated added 18% gratuity on top of $22 drinks. The wait at the beach for food/drinks was over and hour. We called down from our room one night to ask for a bottle opener - we had to call 5 times to get the opener and it took two hours. We even tried to go down to the lobby to get it ourselves and they wouldn’t just hand us one they said we had to wait for it to be delivered to our room. WILL NOT EVER RETURN Read less

This was our third visit to Fontainebleau - this time we brought the whole family. We rented two - one bedroom condos in Tresor Tower. Staff are amazing and promptly honor requests for towels, extra blankets and pillows and literally responded with a maintenance worker within about 10 minutes when we told them one of the toilets kept refilling (not a big deal, just a nuisance). The hotel was super quiet and rarely did we even see anyone in the halls. A bit of noise from the traffic below as the city rocks at night but it was spring break and there is nothing one can do about that. The pool area is really the best!! We rented a Supreme Cabana one day and an Opium bed another. Both are great but nothing beats the Cabana!! The staff at the pool are AMAZING. I can't say enough about them - especially Ronnie - he is an outstanding person!! He is kind and makes everyone feel special. Always a smile on his face and you never felt like you were bothering him by asking for clean towels, water or anything. He is truly an asset to Fontainebleau - ask for his section if you go down by the pool. At least meet him and say hi - he makes everyones day better. The cafe near the pool called Fresh - is a good way to get a quick bite to eat without paying the 18% fee, however the staff that work there are not very nice at all - very crabby - probably because they aren't getting the tips like the poolside staff. You can order the same stuff from the pool chairs (Fresh is only steps away) but you have to pay an 18% gratuity. The spa is awesome, the gym is nice to have available but not a ton of updated equipment or weights but enough to keep your beach bod in shape. Go to Fontaine Bleau - you won't regret it. Read less

The Fontainebleau is a large conference hotel with clean but somewhat dated rooms. The hotel's three best features are (i) the pool areas, which are very large and nice, (ii) the variety of great restaurants and (ii) LIV, the nightclub. Despite this being a large conference hotel, it is really a party scene, so if you are looking for a quite, low-key place to relax, this is not the place. Read less
