The Ritz Carlton South Beach is a hotel that embodies elegance and sophistication, with a rich history that dates back to the 1950s. Originally opened as the DiLido Hotel, this iconic property has been meticulously restored and reimagined to offer guests a luxurious and memorable stay in Miami Beach.

One of the reasons to choose The Ritz-Carlton South Beach is its prime location on Lincoln Road, just steps away from the beach and close to all of the area’s top attractions. The hotel is also within walking distance of many high-end shops and restaurants, making it an ideal destination for those who want to experience the best of Miami Beach.

For those looking to unwind and relax during their stay, The Ritz-Carlton South Beach offers an exceptional spa experience. Operated by the Sports Club/LA, the tranquil spa elevates personal indulgence to fine art. The private treatment rooms include a dry redwood sauna, a Turkish steam room, and a couple’s suite where partners, mothers, daughters, or friends can enjoy treatments side by side. The wet treatment area features a Vichy shower, and the Spa gift shop offers a wide variety of bath, body, and skin-care products.

When it comes to dining, The Ritz-Carlton South Beach does not disappoint. The hotel’s signature restaurant, Bistro One LR, features delicious seafood and locally sourced ingredients, and the DiLido Beach Club offers a more casual dining experience with stunning ocean views. The hotel also offers a full-service bar, as well as 24-hour in-room dining for those who prefer to dine in the comfort of their own guest room.

The Ritz-Carlton South Beach is also surrounded by many high-end boutiques and griffe stores. These stores offer an exceptional shopping experience and feature a carefully curated selection of designer clothing, accessories, and home goods from some of the world’s most sought-after brands.

You can define it as a luxury hotel but family-friendly.

The service here is top-notch, especially from the valet and Maria at the front desk. They were so nice and accommodating to us! ??

John, San Francisco

Overall, this place is good! Breakfast and dinner were both excellent. However, the housekeeping could use some work. Our room wasn’t properly cleaned, our luggage was overturned with clothing spilling out, and they didn’t replenish the coffee or take out the trash. We arrived late at night and the front desk greeting was poor with no help with our luggage. The room we booked via was awful, so we had to upgrade. Club level is a glam!

Emily, New York

The ocean view, pool, and direct access to the beach were all excellent. Room service too!

Disliked: The front desk staff wasn’t as friendly as I’ve experienced at other Marriott properties. As a golf member, I requested a late check-in but was told my room key would be deactivated on the date of checkout. I’ve stayed at Marriotts around the world and this was the first time I had to check again during the checkout date. Very disappointing.

Jake, Los Angeles

This hotel has a great location with excellent beach views and proximity to restaurants, retail, and other attractions. The staff was extremely professional and friendly, from the concierge to the spa personnel to the security team and beach/pool attendants. They were all very attentive to my family’s wants and needs, asking if we needed anything before we even had to ask. The bellhops and door attendants provided excellent service as well, and housekeeping was very good, especially since we visited during Spring Break. Fuego y mar a good experience.

Disliked: The linens and bedding quality could use an upgrade, and firmer mattresses and pillows would be appreciated.

Megan, Chicago

This property is in a fantastic location, right on the beach and within walking distance of shops, restaurants, and the Art Deco district. We also took advantage of the daily complimentary 2-hour bicycle rentals. We ate breakfast daily at the on-site restaurant and the food was great, but the wait staff was not worthy of the automatic 18% tip we were charged on every meal.

Disliked: Our first impression of the hotel was marred by a very rude valet who, when my husband asked if our bags would be brought to our room, told us in a snide tone that “he didn’t bring bags to rooms.” However, Yurman, the porter who did bring our bags to our room, was friendly and kind. Overall, we found the customer service lacking compared to other Ritz Carlton hotels and felt that despite the great location, it was overpriced at $890 per night.
