My wife and I spent a long weekend at the Mandarin Oriental last week, and it was just what the doctor ordered. We were looking for a place offering great weather, solid pampering, and away from the South Beach scene. This hotel is it.
We arrived late Wednesday night, and basically had the beach and pool to ourselves all-day Thursday and until 5:00 Friday - with the exception of the iguana who was interested in the fruit from my wife's sangria. The weekender crowd rolled-in late Friday afternoon (including a wedding party). However, that didn't affect the excellent service and attention that we received from all pool attendants, bar and food staff, and housekeeping. MO knows how to spoil its guests.
Bed was extremely comfortable, balcony views were great. One would be hard-pressed to find much to complain about on-property (other than some of the prices, maybe...)
MO is on Brickell Key, which is a small island between downtown Miami and Miami Beach. The island is less than 2 miles in circumference (great for morning walks) and a 10 minute walk to Mary Brickell Village (shops, bars, restaurants). In sum, it is quiet and separate from much of the Miami nightlife, but not entirely removed from the places you'll want to go if/when you get out of the beach chairs.
