"Beautiful property, great service and great location in Bal HArbour"
Loved the room! We were upgraded to a suite that had 2 balconies with views of the ocean and inter coastal. Only true downside is the cost at the restaurant. Spending $9.00 for coffee (simply as an example) is waaaay too much!
"Excellent experience, the TOP place to stay in Miami"
I love all Ritz Carlton hotels and this particular hotel did not disappoint. The Bistro offers excellent selections of fresh fish and wonderful appetizers. The staff throughout the hotel aim to please the guests. The only negative is I wish the fitness center had been a bit larger and offered more weight equipment. At best the fitness center is on par with the typical gym you'd find in a Courtyard Marriott. Other than this issue everything else in the hotel is a "5" on a 1-5 scale.
"Great place to stay"
We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Bal Harbour, Ritz -Carlton Resort. The team of professionals work diligently to meet all your needs, and they are also very charming! Charlie the Bartender, Jonathon our Pool/Beach Technician, and Yuliya , our Guest Relations Manager go out of their way to make you feel welcome, and comfortable.
"Not Ritz Quality"
This hotel does not deserve to be called a Ritz. It is an inferior property with horrendous service and massively overpriced for the experience it provides. Wrong room, poor housekeeping, holiday inn like pool setting, unattractive public spaces. I would never go back.
"Maybe the most stale hotel experience to date'"
Hello TA Friends! Just a little background on my travel preferences (usually luxury resorts and also luxury kid friendly hotels) - 4 seasons, St. Regis, Ritz, etc. This is my second time staying at Ritz Bal Harbour and I walked away with the same feeling. Its just super stale and feels like a boring old apartment building then a place to have fun. In Miami alone I've stayed at: 1 Hotel, Fountainbleu, St. Regis Bal Harbour, Edition just to name a few. First of all, Ritz has no scene at all. Not a single person wants to head to the lobby or restaurant to have a drink (really its one restaurant that's suffice for breakfast). First time ever I didn't buy a single drink at the hotel. The St. Regis down the street (our other half of our trip) had live music in the wine bar every night and you wanted to stay at the hotel and enjoy the restaurants... NOT here. The rooms are nice enough, but I'm just confused why anyone would stay here. The pool is cold, the beach is not very pretty on this side and you simply can not walk to a single restaurant or shop in the area from this location. Plenty of other options in Miami and Bal Harbour. I even used my points and I'm still not happy (not a good sign) We were there during the holidays and they literally had nothing set up. They did a small thing for the kids (showed a movie and put out some stickers in a room - very odd)
