Miami Beach, Miami

Virgin rating

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.

English at the fountainbleu is a familiar face from our last trip here. He does a great job at being attentive and kind during our stay. Wonderful resort! We were served drinks and food via other workers doing a good job as well.

Make sure you ask for Julian if you plan on having a beach day at Fontainebleau! He brought as much brightness to our day as the sun, super helpful, friendly, and charming. Thanks for taking great care of us!

My wife and I have spent a week at The Fontainebleau and had an amazing time. It was made extra special by Fabio who assisted around the pool he went way beyond to make sure that we had any thing that we needed and was comfortable. He is a huge asset to The Fontainebleau Hotel and we would revisit just because of his hospitality.
