"Great Time at this Property"
Best property I have stayed at hands down. The property is quiet which is absolutely amazing. There are only two rooms per elevator so you have almost an exclusive elevator ride to your room. The beach is right at the end of the public beach area before the entry to the inner waterway so many people don't come toward that spot unless they are the local surfers who understand the waves are good there. Everyone at Ritz Carlton Bal Harbour is friendly and make it their duty to give you the best service ever. Special shout out to Felipe for taking care of setting up a special moment. I would stay here again and consider getting a residence there if the opportunity ever presented itself.
"Not Up to Par with Other R-C Hotels"
Nice, but not RC. Seemed more concerned with Residents or those who drove a $150k car. Hotel lacked that resort feel- dark, not airy or open. Beach was nice, pool average. Not a great vacation neighborhood- lacked good restaurant choices unless you drove to South Beach. Again, nice but wouldnt pay RC prices again.
"Ritz-Carlton at its Best"
Great hotel, everything you would expect from the Ritz Carlton. Wish I was able to stay more than one night! Stayed the night before a cruise out of Fort Lauderdale and would have loved to stay two nights. Room was huge and private cabana was perfect
"Ritz Carlton Bal Harbour"
Spectacular location on north Miami Beach with virtual private beach less than 5 minutes from all Bal Harbour amenities. The service throughout the property was second to none and all food was outstanding
"An ocean-front suite with barely an ocean view - false advertising"
We booked an ocean-front one-bedroom suite. We arrived late and tired and were given a suite with a bllcony from which you can potentially see the ocean if you turn your head just right. From the living room, you see A1A and the intracoastal. From the bedroom, and bathroom you see only buildings. The views have nothing to do with the pictures. The raucous of A'qA is very loud in both bedroom and living room. We went down to correct the error in suite assignment (at best, this is a partial ocean view suite). The front desk staff smiled and essentially told us nobody gets ocean front in this hotel, tough luck. Do not book this place as they engage in false advertising. Ritz Carlton should feel ashamed to have licensed its brand to this hotel.
