Me and my boys went for my bday to Miami. I stayed in Miami plenty times but this the BEST SERVICE especially for urban people like me. We was partying in the room so the front desk lady moved us to a different room that was better and more in the cut room no charge. That boy Laz at the beach gave us a deal cause we needed 3 cabanas so he hooked us up and we got to turn up like we do in the Rack🔥 Never felt like the workers was tryin me, made us feel at home. Guy at the beach told us bout the clubs, ATVs, jet skis all that too ⚡️ Read less

Kaitlyn by the pool was amazing with the kids! She does great face painting, and temporary tattoo. As well as great games! Super fun time and the kids loved her! Meanwhile, everyone by the pool was great our whole stay and really appreciate our friends at the Ritz.

The ritz Carlton brand really has taken a nose dive. It use to mean something. $1500 a night to stay in the facade of luxury. A complete farce and illusion. The finishes resemble that of a red light district motel. Far more than underwhelming, unimpressive or disappointing. The epitome of puffery. Bait and switch at its finest.

Had a beach day with my friend and was given exceptional service from the beach gentlemen. Everyone was extremely attentive and catered to all our needs. Specifically I’d like to give a shout out to Wolf and Laz for their extra sincere character and genuine care for our experience.
