Very nice property.

It is away from the hustle-bustle of South Beach, but if that is desired this is a great place. The staff were all very friendly, inviting and accommodating. Nice pool area and beach access with chairs and umbrellas. Everything is over-priced, but that is the norm for a Ritz property.

Great hotel in every way!

Great private beach at the end of Bal Harbour. The service of the staff is unlike anything I've experienced before and I've stayed at a fair share of high end hotels. Also, the stand alone tub in the bathroom overlooking the beach is wonderful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

Nothing as expected

Posted May 15, 2015
Very poor accommodations for the price point. Only one pool and no staff or luxury on the beach. Outdoor grounds were very minimal and the room was very small and cramped. A pleasant basic experience, but not worth the price or stars.

Pros: nihil
Cons: Housekeeping!!
Location: local maravilhoso, agradável e com excelente visual. Não nos servimos das atividades nas proximidades.
Infelizmente, já conhecia o Hotel como "One Bal Harbour Resort", agora, convertido em "Ritz". Excelente, especialmente por ter mantido seus maravilhosos funcionários, tal como o Juan, no restaurante, que se antecipa em atender e conhecer as necessidades dos hóspedes. Quando contratei o Ritz pelo sítio, esperava encontrar o que houvera encontrado em Montreal, Toronto, como também, em Boston. Ao deparar-me com o excelente hotel "One Bal Harbour Resort", convertido em "Ritz", ademais do péssimo trabalho do "HouseKeeping", foi decepcionante. Parece destoante, mas, é isto mesmo. Neste particular, desejo ressaltar o péssimo trabalho do "housekeeping", que deixava o quarto cheio de pó, tinha um péssimo "timing", como um determinado dia em que deixamos o quarto por volta de 12:00 h, e, retornando às 17:30 h, ainda não haviam feito o quarto, o que nos fez descer ao "lobby" do hotel, para esperar o término do serviço. Para lá não volto. Tudo se resume na decepção em escolher um "Ritz", e receber um hotel que já era regularmente utilizado por mim, ainda que maravilhoso. Acho que vão enfrentar este percalço com os antigos clientes do "One Bal Harbour Resort".

Exclusive hideaway

Posted Mar 23, 2015
Pros: Secluded. It was easy to feel like you were at your own private retreat. Cabanas with adjoining hot-tubs made for quiet relaxing hours.
Cons: The hotel is high-end and comes with the commensurate price tag. Only 100 guest rooms, the balance are residents.
Location: Great pool, spa and beach facilities on teh property. Enjoy the COB at nearby Haulover beach and enjoy being unencumbered.
If you would like to turn a weekend into a private retreat, the Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour is the hotel for you. This hotel earns all five stars from amenities to the high caliber staff. From the moment we walked in the entrance, the staff was there to make thsi a memorable weekend for us. We were greeted with a glass of champagne and warm smiles. everyone on staff knew our names and treated us better than family. The food and presentation were amazing.
