Overview

Guests praise the resort's attentive and helpful staff
The property is a bit removed from Miami and Miami Beach's activities

The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, Miami is pleasantly decorated, pleasantly staffed and pleasantly placed. It's true that the barrier outpost of Key Biscayne is a bit removed from Miami's activity, but the resort is close to area sights like the Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park and the Miami Seaquarium. On the resort grounds, you'll find two heated outdoor pools, the Cuban-inspired RUMBAR lounge (and three other on-site dining options) and the tranquil Ritz-Carlton Spa, Key Biscayne – an ideal venue for a little extra R&R. Accommodations at this Ritz-Carlton property are bright and sunny with tropical decor, plush fabrics and ample space for lounging. Recent guests highly recommend requesting an ocean-view room when booking, but no matter which accommodation you choose, you'll find it equipped with amenities like Frette linens, mother-of-pearl bathroom vanities, LCD flat-screen TVs and iPod docking stations. And if the well-appointed rooms don't impress you, guests say the staff will blow you away. Keep in mind that this hotel participates in the Marriott Bonvoy program.
