Guests praise the resort's attentive and helpful staff
The property is a bit removed from Miami and Miami Beach
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 chic yet homey, with modern wooden furnishings, blue and white hues, 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, marble bathrooms, flat-screen LCD TVs and Wi-Fi access (which your $35 daily resort fee covers). And if the well-appointed rooms don't impress you, guests say the staff will blow you away. Keep in mind that this resort participates in the Marriott Bonvoy program.

Critic Reviews

Travel + Leisure


Hands down, the Ritz-Carlton is Miami's best full-service resort, with tropical gardens, a tennis center, a 20,000-square-foot spa, kids' programs, and a pristine beach.



In this ultra-laid-back setting, it's natural to appreciate the Ritz brand of pampering with luxurious rooms, attentive service, five on-property dining options, and ample recreational activities for the whole family.



In addition to superior services and amenities, this British colonial-style version of the Ritz rises above its casual Key Biscayne surroundings, with a stellar view of the Atlantic Ocean, not to mention an equally impressive 20,000-square-foot spa.



Cemented as a staple of luxury, this oceanfront resort offers a color palate reflective of the surrounding sun, sea and sand. A bounty of amenities await you in the beach-inspired guest rooms.


A tranquil 450-room island resort off the Miami mainland on Key Biscayne, the Ritz provides some of the traditional 'Ritzy' benchmarks – impeccably kept grounds, huge pools, a brilliant spa, a world-class tennis center, a kids' club, and elegant (if generic) interiors.
