"Resident style "
Ritz Carlton took over like a year a go as far as I was told, and it doesn't feel like it's a ritz Carlton, need some up dates, it's an ok location, if you looking for a relaxing vacation in might be ok but for the money it's over priced.
"Beautiful hotel and property"
Luxury hotel at it's best. Beautiful and modern hotel. There are only two rooms per floor. Very exclusive and private. Beautiful balcony and ocean views. Very professional and friendly service. Worth the high price.
"Second Trip/Second Review"
Second stay and it really has become our favorite hotel in Miami- I cannot emphasize how huge the one room suite is. The pool is great, the jogging trail along the beach front is convenient, the staff is top notch. It is a quiet getaway from the crazy of south beach but Uber is always near by and it is easy to get out and explore. Personal Thanks to Tino McKenzie who retrieved an item we left and rapidly get it Fed-Ex'd back to us. We will definitely be back.
"Wonderful area, but some areas for improvement"
As always, Ritz-Carlton didn't disappoint when it comes to delivering quality service to their ladies and gentlemen, but I wouldn't rate this hotel a 5-Star for missing some major components. SERVICE: -Upon check-in, water bottle or champagne service is provided -Valet service were quick and efficient in delivering their service - kudos to the team! very impressive and anticipated your needs (e.g. water bottle having it ready in the car, assisting in putting your seat belts, before we even stepped out the property the valet already knew we were coming out so he got the car ready). -House car is available within the 6 mile range - Upon Check-in, Front desk showed the property around and gave a brief "history" of the property. Toured us where the amenities are (e.g. pool, spa, breakfast lounge, business ctr. and etc). -Friendly staff -Pool & beach staff were very attentive to your needs and really appreciated their assistance to making your beach stay wonderful! HOUSEKEEPING: - This is where I will eliminate one star. The housekeeping service is poor and when I say poor, its because of the things I noticed like, upon getting into our room I noticed right away that the room was never vacuumed nor dusted. The dust around the tables, mirrors, base boards and walls were troublesome! Imagine MY EYES were all over the place! The balcony was not cleaned so I didn't use the chairs to lounge during the day. In the balcony, there were indication of either yellow jacket, wasps or perhaps ants. Furthermore, the bathroom vanity stool had a remnants of hair that were never clean up. Awful cleaning service! -Turn down service was not consistent. There was a time when someone would refill all toiletries and there were nights were you didn't have any toiletries, however trash were picked up, thank goodness!. - Throughout our 5 night stay, it was evident that the room was NEVER vacuumed nor dusted because the dust kept accumulating. How can I prove it was never vacuumed' - because I had a small cable tie purposely left on the carpet and it never went away throughout our entire stay. How sad! - We had an incident during our stay where the room was infested with an insect in which I believe was a termite or big black ants with wings (i'm not sure but they are freaking disgusting)! . There was a trail of them coming from the window and they took over the towel, bath robe and bath mat! Will try to upload a pic and video soon. Reported this to the front desk but never received a follow up on what happened and how it was taken care of. AREA: The area in which the hotel is situated at is in a very affluent place therefore, less noise, and clutter. Location wise, very great! -They claim that the beach is "private" but its not. It is semi-private because it is right next to Haulover park and there were some people fishing nearby. -Beach wise, its clean, less stones/rocks compared to south beach. AMENITIES: - Didn't use the spa so I can't review on that - Jogging path - excellent, they also provide you with complimentary towel, bottled water (not natural spring water though), fruits and jogging map -Gym - I used their gym quite a few times. Very clean, there some fruits, gatorade, towels, disposable headset. I wish they had sauna, steam room or at least a changing room. -Pool - didn't use the pool so I can't comment/review on it. There were two or three cabanas I think, and it runs from $425-475 per day. I think that was a little too expensive because its really not private since people were walking all the time. I recommend putting a cabana next to the beach and that will make the price worth it. OVERALL: In summary, this is a great hotel with a lot of plus and minuses. The minuses can be used as a way to make some improvements. Since daily rates are on the high side, a vase with fresh cut flowers in the room, perhaps daily fresh fruits (apple or orange in the room 2-3 pcs.) will definitely kick it up a notch. Service didn't disappoint but of course they can do more if they please. I wish this property had a club level - perhaps something they can introduce in the next several months. Would I come back here again' Maybe. Do I recommend it' Sure, why not!
"The Best Hotel Experience"
My husband and I stayed in this hotel for one week and I'm glad to admit that it was worthy of the high price we paid. Our room was very spacious with a nice balcony and a breathtaking view over North Bearch Miami! When showering or relaxing the hot tube, the whole Miami is under your feet! The hotel feels more like a private residential building...not like those commercially crowded hotels...So we really felt like getting undivided attention from the very friendly hotel staffs. The parking is through paid valet service of $35/day. I highly recommend this hotel and most certainly next time we'll stay in the same hotel.
