The hotel

With rich history, set within an art deco landmark, Ritz-Carlton South Beach is a hotel oozing with glamour and exclusivity. DiLido Beach Club is the place to be seen, and their ‘Frose Fridays’ offer the perfect start to the weekend overlooking the oceanfront. Continue your weekend shopping and dining in South Beach, everything you need is within easy walking distance. And whilst Sunday may be considered a ‘day of rest’, we’re carrying on the party here with brunch at Fuego y Mar complete with live music and Atlantic views. If you’re looking for a more chilled break, the Ritz-Carlton Spa is perfect to relax with luxurious treatments and products on offer, or just chill by the elevated pool and let the sounds of the ocean take away your troubles.

The rooms seemed outdated. There were some features, like glass doors between the toilet and shower, that could use to be turned into wooden doors. The doors also opened out, which then made the bathroom feel even smaller. Also, there are no overhead lights in the room, which is odd. The pool area and restaurants are great.

We went with teenagers for spring break and it was a very family friendly experience with lots of other kids around - although most younger. The hotel was nice, the staff very attentive. Kudos to Kelly at the pool who set up chairs for us every day. She was fantastic and on her game. The rooms looked like that recently been updated and were very spacious with a great bathroom.

We had the best time at the Ritz! Our original trip was scheduled to Puerto Rico and due to airline issues, we never made it. So we got redirected to Miami and made the best of it.

We had the best time at the Ritz! Our original trip was scheduled to Puerto Rico and due to airline issues, we never made it. So we got redirected to Miami and made the best of it. The staff at the Ritz went above and beyond. Caleb, Soso and Abrham did everything to ensure our beach experience was top notch! They got us set up and checked in with us to make us feel special! Mateo was our server and made sure the drinks were flowing. Great guys, very personable and extremely professional. My spa experience was amazing as well. Clean rooms and great food. A last minute diversion to Miami at the Ritz Hotel ended up being a blessing in disguise. We will be back! :) Read less
