Overview

The property has a 10,000-square-foot spa
Main restaurant receives mixed reviews from diners
You'll have to adjust your expectations when staying at the The Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour, Miami. This isn't where you book if you want to stay in the nucleus of South Beach activity to shop all day and party every night. Rather, this is where you come for a little R&R with a taste of luxury. The deluxe and standard rooms at this Ritz-Carlton outpost boast 42-inch flat-screen TVs and Bose surround sound systems, while suites bump you up to two flat-screens TVs and fully equipped kitchens. The hotel also features a 10,000-square-foot spa, a heated outdoor pool and the Artisan Beach House restaurant. Some guests said the food and service were superb, while others were disappointed in the food quality and high prices – especially the $40 daily resort fee. And if you couldn't tell from its name, this hotel sits in Bal Harbour, just 15 miles northeast of downtown Miami and about 10 miles north of South Beach. Because this hotel is part of the Marriott family, it gives Marriott Bonvoy members the chance to earn and redeem points during their stays.
