We spent the day on the beach and our waiter Kyle was SO accommodating! Very helpful and tentative. Always asked how everything was, and when my drink actually wasn’t good he was right on it and got me an even better drink. His service alone is the reason I’d come back!

Iconic Hotel with beautiful rooms. We had a wonderful time celebrating our honeymoon here and it was made extra special by the staff, in particular Nina that works there. She went above and beyond to ensure we had a wonderful and memorable time there. The hotel is a massive resort with lots of pools and access to the beach. There are party pools and more relaxed pools. We ate in a few of the restaurants and they were all very good, but the Chinese restaurant was lovely. For me, it was the customer service (from Nina) that made us return to the hotel for our last night after a trip to the keys and would make us want to return in the future. Read less

After wanting to stay at the iconic Fontainebleau for awhile, my fiancé and I spent Labor Day weekend there in an ocean-front balcony room. I’m still not sure what I think of the hotel. The lobby and amenities are nice and well-kept, the staff was friendly and helpful, the food was good, and the room was nice with a large balcony and great view. However, everything still seemed dated. Maybe that’s what some people like about it. Also, the only thing separating our balcony from our neighbors’ was a waist-high iron railing. We could see everyone else on their balconies [at least on the same floor as us]. The pool area, including the poolside bars, closed really early [like 6 or 7pm], even on a Saturday. I’ve never stayed at a resort that closed the pool/pool bar area so early. Finally, even though I knew it wasn’t real close to the heart of South Beach, it was a lot farther than I anticipated. All in, glad we stayed there to experience it, but won’t choose to stay there again unless attending an event at the hotel. Read less
