    Acqualina Resort & Spa on the Beach
    Sunny Isles Beach, FL
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 1159 reviewsTripAdvisor (1159)
    Free WiFi

    This spa resort doesn't take any of its five stars for granted, particularly when it comes to delivering first-rate customer service. Recent guests can't help but keep the compliments coming: Travelers say that the resort staff took extra care to personalize each experience. One problem you might face, however, is exclusivity. The Acqualina Resort & Spa on the Beach only has 98 guest rooms and suites, so be sure to book early for an upcoming trip to Sunny Isles Beach. The rooms come with flat-screen TVs and private balconies, as well as double sinks and glass-enclosed showers. Meanwhile, the property also features three in-house eateries, four pools, a spa and beach amenities. What's more, the hotel is part of The Leading Hotels of the World, meaning Leaders Club members have access to perks here. You'll find the Acqualina Resort & Spa in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, about 11 miles north of Miami Beach.

    Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa
    Manalapan, FL
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1304 reviewsTripAdvisor (1304)
    Free WiFi

    Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa is a little farther removed from the other luxury oceanfront properties of Palm Beach; as such, you can anticipate a little more privacy on your beach days. If you stay at this resort in Manalapan, Florida, you'll be about 12 miles south of West Palm Beach hot spots, like Clematis Street. This Preferred Legend property has taken the area by storm, with recent visitors raving about the resort's array of unique offerings. The spacious guest rooms feature beachy yellow and blue hues, and amenities like complimentary Wi-Fi access, soaking tubs and balconies overlooking the resort grounds or ocean. Meanwhile, travelers say the treatments and services offered at the serene Eau Spa are worth the extra coin; or, you can get your R&R fix alongside one of the outdoor pools. Eau Palm Beach also offers diversions for children, like the AquaNuts kids program (with physical activities for those ages 5 to 12), or the COAST teens lounge, where young lodgers can learn how to DJ and or simply hang out. And when you get hungry, try any one of the four on-site restaurants.

    The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort
    Bal Harbour, FL
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1697 reviewsTripAdvisor (1697)
    Free WiFi

    Although it only opened its doors in 2012, The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort has made a lasting impression on Miami Beach visitors. Travelers describe their experiences here as phenomenal, primarily due to the property's attentive staff and prime location. Overlooking the Atlantic from its seat in Bal Harbour (about 8 miles north of South Beach), this member of the St. Regis Hotels family provides a less frenzied setting much appreciated by couples and travelers with children. Guest rooms are spacious and feature pastel hues and private furnished balconies, as well as high-tech amenities like 46-inch flat-screen TVs with Blu-ray players and iPod docking stations. When you're not bedding down, you can pass the time at one of two outdoor pools, the 14,000-square-foot Remède Spa or the adjacent 1,000-foot beach. The resort also features four on-site restaurants, including one with a wine vault. And because The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort resides under the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    W South Beach
    Miami Beach, FL
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4238 reviewsTripAdvisor (4238)

    If we only had one word to describe the W South Beach, it would be "stylish." This hotel's trendy slate-gray color scheme and gorgeous pool beckon to the young and hip. Add to that a glamorous spa and five mouth-watering restaurants and lounges, and you've got yourself a Miami Beach hot-spot. And did we mention the location? This W property dominates its central Collins Avenue address, making it a huge hit with guests. When it's time to go to bed (if it's ever time to go to bed in Miami), you'll find accommodations here to be both swanky and comfortable. Rooms feature ocean views, private balconies, high ceilings and kitchenettes or kitchens, as well as contemporary amenities like flat-screen TVs and on-demand movies. The W South Beach even has amenities for your pets. Lodging at this Miami Beach hot spot will put a sizable dent in your wallet, but if you're a member of the Marriott Bonvoy program, you can use points to cover the cost of your stay.

    The Ritz-Carlton, Naples
    Naples, FL
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2181 reviewsTripAdvisor (2181)

    This Ritz in Naples, Florida, is a clear guest favorite. Travelers find its luxurious amenities and attentive staff to be in a class all of its own, even when compared with other top-notch properties. The only thing comparable is its sister property, The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples, which is located approximately 4 miles away (there's a complimentary shuttle that goes to the Tiburón Golf Club at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort). At this Ritz, you can relax at the massive spa and salon, which boasts 30 separate treatment rooms, or work up a sweat in the fitness center. Or, feast away at one of the seven decadent dining options: Recent vacationers describe the on-site Gumbo Limbo restaurant – with its Floridian cuisine – as the perfect place to grab a bite to eat. Some recent guests aren't as complimentary of the rooms, however. Some travelers say the rooms (which feature 42-inch smart TVs and marble bathrooms) are subject to late-night noise. Keep in mind that Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points by staying here.

    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3222 reviewsTripAdvisor (3222)
    Free WiFi

    As is the norm with Ritz-Carlton properties, The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes pleases guests with its well-appointed rooms and fantastic customer service. Each of its 582 guest rooms and suites feature private balconies, marble bathrooms (with two sinks) and LCD flat-screen TVs. This immense property also boasts an 18-hole golf course, two pools and access to a massive lazy river at the neighboring JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes (the two resorts share grounds and activities). Craving more quiet relaxation than the kid-congested river can offer? Head to The Ritz's 40,000-square-foot spa, which boasts 40 treatment rooms and citrus-inspired treatments. And when it's time to refuel, The Ritz-Carlton Orlando features a plethora of on-site dining options, offering everything from casual alfresco eats to formal dining restaurants. If you're having trouble booking a room at the ultra-exclusive, ultra-expensive Ritz, consider giving the JW Marriott a try. Keep in mind that this hotel participates in the Marriott Bonvoy program, so members can earn and use points by staying here.

    Four Seasons Hotel Miami
    Miami, FL
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2072 reviewsTripAdvisor (2072)

    Surely there are crazier things you could do than pick a hotel solely on the merits of its fitness center, right? After all, the gym at this Brickell Avenue Four Seasons is pretty spectacular: It measures a whopping 50,000 square feet and boasts a smorgasbord of cardiovascular equipment, more than 100 exercise classes a week, certified trainers and more. The only drawback – if you could call it that – would be that it's not open 24 hours. But not everyone comes here to work out, and the Four Seasons Hotel Miami staff knows this, offering friendly, personalized service to everyone who walks in the door, according to recent guests. Because of its downtown Miami location, the hotel caters to business travelers, offering a 24-hour business center and complimentary car service to get guests to any local meeting destinations. Room amenities include luxury bath products, LCD televisions and complimentary Wi-Fi. However, don't spend all your time hunkered down in your digs: Visitors highly recommend spending the afternoon by the hotel's swanky palm-peppered pool. And at the end of the day, treat yourself to a gourmet meal at EDGE Steak & Bar.

    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 was superb, while others were disappointed in the food quality and high prices. And if you couldn't tell from its name, this hotel sits in Bal Harbour, just 13 miles northeast of downtown Miami and a little less than 10 miles north of South Beach. This hotel participates in the Marriott Bonvoy program.

    Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando Resort
    Orlando, FL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 5780 reviewsTripAdvisor (5780)
    Free WiFi

    The Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando Resort enthralls its visitors. Its Mediterranean-inspired setting is a treat for the eyes, but the most compelling reason guests rave about this Loews branch is its high-end amenities. Examples of perks travelers love include the full-service Mandara Spa and the elegant atmosphere found in Mama Della's Ristorante (just one of this Loews hotel's four restaurants). The guest rooms also earn high praise for their style and creature comforts, such as flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and Keurig coffee makers. On the other hand, the ritzy features come with a price tag that guests say can take a toll on your pocketbook. Plus, there are extra fees for valet and self-parking. (However, you can earn perks by becoming a member of the Loews YouFirst rewards program.) As its full name suggests, the Loews Portofino Bay sits on the grounds of Universal Orlando Resort, giving you easy access to the Universal theme parks, like the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

    Travelers say this Hyatt Regency makes a convenient choice for those conducting business in Orlando. The hotel sits within easy reach of both Orlando International Airport and the Orange County Convention Center. And for those who've brought their families along for the ride, this Hyatt hotel serves as an I-Ride Trolley stop, meaning guests can quickly get to theme parks like SeaWorld. No matter your reason for visiting, guests say you'll enjoy the Hyatt Regency Orlando's recreational facilities, which include three swimming pools (one of which is equipped with a waterslide for the kiddos), an outdoor tennis court and The Spa at Hyatt Regency Orlando, which houses a 24-hour fitness center and offers a wide array of treatments. Meanwhile, the on-site eateries earn high praise for their tasty cuisine. Travelers also appreciate the comtemporary rooms, which feature a neutral color scheme, flat-screen TVs and coffee makers. However, some past visitors lamented additional fees for amenities like parking. World of Hyatt members can cut costs by cashing in rewards points.

    This resort in northern Naples is a big hit with families. Perhaps it's the pool with a 100-foot-long twisting waterslide or the 3 miles of white-sand beach. But don't worry, if you're traveling sans the youngsters, there are still plenty of amenities to pass the time. The property boasts an 18-hole golf course, 15 Har-Tru tennis courts and a spa with 12 treatment rooms. Grab a drink at the lounge, sit down to a tasty lunch at Aura, or head to The Catch of the Pelican for a delicious dinner of steak and seafood. When it's time to sleep, recharge in a coastal, garden or gulf view room and enjoy private balconies or patios, flat-screen TVs and marble bathrooms with walk-in showers and soaking tubs. While former visitors raved about the rooms and the beach, they bemoaned the daily resort fee.

    If you have a hankering for nostalgia, consider booking a stay at this landmark property. Everyone from Judy Garland and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor to Al Capone has stayed at The Biltmore Hotel. Capone even ran an under-the-radar casino here, and legend has it that the 275 rooms and suites are still haunted by the ghosts of past lodgers. Either way, travelers are blown away by the beautiful European aesthetic of the hotel. Rooms carry on the luxurious theme of the hotel flawlessly, offering guests 340-threat-count Egyptian bedding and oversized picture windows with views of the pool, golf course or surrounding neighborhood. Amenities like the posh Palme d'Or restaurant and the 18-hole Biltmore Golf Course are just too good to think otherwise. But should you need to unwind outside your digs, recent guests said you can't leave the property without lounging by the expansive Italian Renaissance-inspired pool. You should especially make time for the Sunday Champagne brunch – that's when this hotel really puts its best foot forward. You'll find the lovely Biltmore Hotel in the city of Coral Gables about 10 miles southwest of downtown Miami.

    JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort

    Spacious rooms and luscious fairways are tantamount to this Marco Island property's acclaim. But visitors also appreciate this resort's versatility as a meeting and event space (it is a Marriott, after all). For example, the business center boasts all sorts of amenities, including office supplies, computers and FedEx shipping services. What will you find if you're away on pleasure, not business? Try a state-of-the-art spa, three outdoor pools and a sprawling stretch of beach. Meanwhile, the JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort's 726 rooms and suites feature South Pacific-inspired decor and contemporary amentities like flat-screen TVs, minifridges and balconies or lanais that overlook the pools or Gulf of Mexico. When mealtime rolls around, you'll find eight on-site eateries that serve everything from pizza to sushi. Recent guests say that it's expensive to stay here, but if you're a Marriott Bonvoy member, you can use points to help keep costs down.

    JW Marriott Turnberry Resort & Spa

    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2089 reviewsTripAdvisor (2089)

    The secluded JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa hotel tends to exceed travelers' expectations. And as its name suggests, this Marriott-affiliated resort is located on the grounds of the Turnberry Golf Course, so prepare to be fairly far removed from much of the Greater Miami area. However, many visitors say that this hotel's location – not to mention its on-site spa (which boasts three floors of treatment areas) and long list of recreational amenities – make for a great getaway. The incredible customer service doesn't hurt either. Guest rooms here are spacious and comfortable with 47-inch flat-screen TVs, Keurig coffee makers and iHome docking stations. Charges, however, apply for in-room Wi-Fi access. Families are particularly fond of this JW Marriott property due to its abundant kid-friendly facilities, including a waterslide, a splash pool and a lazy river, not to mention its kids programs, which offer supervised activities like arts and crafts (for an additional fee). And the resort's four in-house restaurants cater to a variety of palates. What's more, thanks to its brand ties, this resort invites Marriott Bonvoy members to use or earn points here.

    The Mondrian South Beach faces Biscayne Bay as opposed to the Atlantic Ocean. And as such, it largely misses out on some of the hectic atmosphere associated with the South Beach shore. But this is an infinite plus to this hotel's faithful guests and a pleasant surprise for recent first-timers. From the eye-catching design (by industrial design genius Marcel Wanders) to the relaxing pool, many recent guests were impressed with the Mondrian South Beach's swanky decor and contemporary furnishings. Guest rooms and suites are decked out in black and white hues and come equipped with 42-inch plasma-screen TVs, rainfall showers and GUYandGIRL bath products. Meanwhile, Mondrian Caffè serves American fare with a Florida twist for breakfast, lunch and dinner. But one of the top attributes of this hotel is the incredible staff who goes out of their way to make guests' stays enjoyable and comfortable. Keep in mind, though, that the property charges a daily resort fee of $34.

Along with high-end amenities, this resort also boasts well-appointed rooms and suites, outfitted with marble bathrooms, blackout curtains and furnished balconies with views of the surrounding buildings, ocean or Intracoastal Waterway. The guest rooms receive a thumbs-up for comfort and style, recent guests mostly praised the customer service, citing the staff's friendliness and eagerness to help as a reason to return. (The oceanfront views aren't too shabby, either.) But convenience is something this resort lacks: The Diplomat Beach Resort Hollywood is about 10 miles southeast of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. And thanks to this Curio property's Hilton ties, if you're a Hilton Honors, you can use or earn points here.

    There are four Ritz-Carlton hotels in the Greater Miami area, and The Ritz-Carlton Coconut Grove, Miami happens to be the smallest. But recent guests said you'll find just as much refined luxury and winning customer service at this Coconut Grove hotel as you'll find at any other competitor. Travelers describe the expansive lobby as a treat for the eyes, thanks in part to its towering columns and swanky Victorian era-inspired furnishings. Meanwhile, the 115 guest rooms and suites are a bit more demure with green, red and gold fabrics and polished wood furnishings, with some offering expansive views of Biscayne Bay. (Visitors say that the higher up your room is, the better the vistas will be.) Accommodations also come equipped with marble bathrooms, wireless internet access, LCD televisions and iPod docking stations. But don't plan on hunkering down for your entire stay: The Ritz-Carlton also boasts a 6,000-square-foot spa, a heated lap pool and a 24-hour fitness center. After working up a sweat, satisfy your appetite with fresh seafood at Bizcaya. This hotel participates in the Marriott Bonvoy rewards program.

    Keep in mind that this Kissimmee, Florida, hotel is about 5 miles away from the Walt Disney World area, which may be a deal-breaker for families. But on the plus side, it won't take you too long to reach the parks by car or via the resort's theme park shuttle (which is covered by the daily resort fee), and those not interested in the theme park fanfare will be far enough from Mickey's hoopla to enjoy a restful stay. Previous guests appreciated the convenient location, as well as the amenities offered for working travelers. The Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center features a business center and several meeting rooms, plus it's only 19 miles southwest of Orlando International Airport. Take your pick between the standard guest rooms or the Emerald Bay guest rooms, differentiated by their distinct decor. No matter which room you choose, you'll find a flat-screen TV, a coffee maker and free (albeit slow) Wi-Fi access. The property also houses a swimming pool, a water park, a spa and six distinct eateries, plus a coffee house and a frozen yogurt shop. And since the hotel is part of the Marriott brand, Marriott Bonvoy members can use or earn points here.

    The Shore Club South Beach is the go-to hotel for many frequent Miami Beach visitors. The resplendent rooftop spa is certainly a one-of-a-kind setting, the hip Skybar is a fun environment (decked out in vibrant red and orange hues), and the on-site Terrazza restaurant offers top-notch Italian fare in a casual indoor-outdoor venue. But still, there are some visitors who say that this is one of those South Beach properties that is just too-cool-for-school but not down-to-earth enough to excel at the basics. According to some, the rooms appear dated despite the bright decor, rain showers and MALIN+GOETZ bath products. Still, guests say that the customer service here is truly excellent, especially the attentive beach staff. And with its perfect placement along Collins Avenue, the Shore Club South Beach can boast that many of its rooms provide an ocean view. Plus, the two bungalow-strewn infinity pools are some of the prettiest in all of South Beach.

    The first Four Seasons property to open at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, this resort – which sits about 5 miles southeast of the Magic Kingdom – aims to fill the park's luxury lodging void. And judging by its amenities, the Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort appears to be succeeding. With its own 18-hole golf course, 13,000-square-foot spa and rooftop steakhouse, the Four Seasons Resort Orlando is well-suited for travelers who want easy access to the theme parks without the over-the-top kitsch associated with Disney-owned properties. That's not to say that the resort doesn't cater to little ones: The hotel also boasts a 242-foot-long waterslide, an 11,008-square-foot lazy river and the complimentary Kids For All Seasons kids camp. Plus, the Four Seasons Resort Orlando offers its own Disney character breakfasts, complimentary park shuttle service and a Disney Planning Center – a separate concierge desk designed for mapping out your park itinerary and purchasing tickets. Aside from its amenities, this Four Seasons excels in its accommodations, according to recent guests. Rooms are outfitted with large soaking tubs, flat-screen TVs, contemporary decor and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Recent travelers also appreciated the customer service team here, but were not as pleased with the pricey nightly rates.

    Recent lodgers said their stay at the Faena Hotel Miami Beach was next to perfect. Guests gushed about the staff's attention to detail and genuine friendliness. Accommodations received tons of praise as well, and were described by reviewers as spacious (the smallest rooms measure 400 square feet), well-appointed and downright chic. Rooms are decorated in a modern, South American style and come outfitted with sleek wood furnishings and colorful accents. Other amenities include flat-screen TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi access and marble bathrooms with walk-in showers. Some standard rooms are also equipped with furnished balconies, and most rooms offer ocean views. What's more, you'll have access to a Faena Butler to arrange any request. Dining here is also a big attraction. Travelers say you can't leave without grabbing a bite at Pao by Paul Qui (just make sure to reserve a table in advance). The hotel's other dining venues include Los Fuegos by Francis Mallmann, which specializes in South American grilling, and the Veranda, which serves breakfast, as well as a lounge and bar with live DJs. The Faena also boasts an Old Hollywood-style theater that hosts cabaret shows and the Tierra Santa Healing House spa. You can find this highly acclaimed hotel in the heart of Miami Beach. But be forewarned: guests say a stay here is pricey. However, Leaders Club members can enjoy perks like welcome gifts and free upgrades.

    Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach
    Palm Beach, FL
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2339 reviewsTripAdvisor (2339)
    Free WiFi

    Like any Four Seasons worth its salt, this luxury resort on Palm Beach's South Ocean Boulevard offers plush cream-colored rooms, ocean views and quality customer service in spades. Although the beach is within easy reach, we'd be remiss if we didn't also highlight this hotel's grand freshwater pool area, where you'll be treated to ice water, Evian spritzes and chilled towels to keep you looking cool and refreshed all afternoon long. Should you happen to spend a little too long in the sun, previous guests highly recommend soothing your skin at the hotel's spa. Travelers are also fond of the Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach's guest rooms and suites, which come dressed in contemporary furnishings, down bedding and plasma TVs. Although the resort does offer some business-friendly services and a few family-friendly perks (kids younger than 5 eat for free at the on-site restaurants, while teens can play pool or watch movies), this property is better suited for couples looking for an escape. For example, the on-site Florie's restaurant, with its contemporary health-conscious fare, makes a great venue for a date night.

    Mandarin Oriental, Miami
    Miami, FL
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2970 reviewsTripAdvisor (2970)

    If you plan on staying at this Mandarin Oriental hotel, don't plan on being surrounded by the raucous environment most visitors expect of Miami. This sophisticated hotel on the shores of Brickell Key on Biscayne Bay has an intimate feel that might make it hard to remember that you're in busy, buzzy Miami. Inside the hotel, you'll find rooms and suites featuring trendy decor and Asian design elements mixed with a bright beige and orange color scheme. Each accommodation also comes with a high-definition TV, a spacious bathroom (fitted with a separate soaking tub and a walk-in glass shower) and a private balcony that offers spectacular views of the city or the bay. As much as they love the rooms, recent travelers save some kudos for the staff as well as the hotel facilities, especially the infinity pool and the four on-site eateries.

    The northeastern Florida seaside community of Ponte Vedra Beach – due southeast of Jacksonville – is known for its super-luxe resorts. And like its sister property, The Lodge & Club at Ponte Vedra Beach, the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club gets kudos for its attentive staff and choice amenities. Accommodations here are spacious and equipped with conveniences like fully-stocked minibars, flat-screen TVs and high-speed wireless internet access (which is covered by the $29 daily resort fee). When you feel hunger pangs coming on, you can sit down to dinner at the Seahorse Grille, which serves up fresh seafood alongside spectacular ocean views. The Ponte Vedra Inn also has a pastry chef on staff with homemade ice cream, served in the bistro-style Gourmet Shop. And for a hearty serving of R&R, guests recommend spending time at the in-house spa; measuring 30,000 square feet. However, for many guests, it's the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club's customer service that makes them want to come back. Travelers describe the staff here as superb.

    The Breakers Palm Beach
    Palm Beach, FL
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2621 reviewsTripAdvisor (2621)
    Free WiFi

    Travelers and critics alike gush over this Italian Renaissance-style resort. High on their list of perks are the gorgeous grounds, which feature two golf courses, four pools, a private beach and 10 Har-Tru tennis courts. And the genial front desk staff will probably recommend you spend a day in the relaxing spa. As for lodging, the spacious guest rooms come with custom furnishings and high-end linens, as well as flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi access. Yet not all travelers were impressed, noting that the resort can get crowded and advising guests to watch out for hidden fees. Reviews are much better for the on-site restaurants: Recent guests appreciated the variety of dining options, though some do say the prices here can be a little steep. Visitors suggest The Beach Club Restaurant for breakfast or lunch and the Flagler Steakhouse for an elegant dinner. You'll find The Breakers along Palm Beach's South County Road, less than 2 miles east of downtown West Palm Beach.
