The Ritz has a great location. Rooms and general facilties were very nice. We never ate dinner at the restaurants but did have lunch and breakfast there and it was very good. Prices are slightly expensive but it's not ridiculous. )Check out the Delano for ridiculous price) Remember this is South Beach and this is a first rate hotel so if you want cheap you're being unreasonable. The pool and beach are great and we really felt the Pool staff and their director Chris were eager to make everyone's day enjoyable. I do agree that charging $20 for an umbrella is dumb at a high end resort like this. It's a nuisance fee in my opinion and rubs most guest the wrong way. People are more conscious now of the harmful effects of the sun so umbrella's on the beach should just be given out to everyone who asks. The other small negative was the Kids club. It's small and is more a baby sitting service with only a few activities. They charge $20/hour/child.
Overall though we enjoyed our stay and would certainly return.
