I wouldnít recommend the Miami Beach Resort now for the sole reason that it seemed dated when we went in 2 years ago, and you may have a healthier budget than that. But, I personally would have no qualms about staying there (wish we had the last time instead of the Fritz - you can enter your own rhyming nickname here- Hotel on South Beach!)
Iím very jealous, would love to go back soon!

We stayed at the Delano on south beach - another 5 star - great location- loads bars restaurants around - but the pool is smaller than looks on website. Drinks $20 a small beer at the pool! Very trendy - felt quite old - young glamorous people around pool putting their pictures on Instagram etc!

Wel loved the Kimpton Surfcomber. Free drinks in the reception area every afternoon for guests and right on the beach. Close to loads of great restaurants. The rooms were compact but clean, parking is valet and offsite so you would need to factor the pricing in. We would absolutely return!

Iíve booked Ritz Carlton South Beach, currently finishing a return, due to open end January. Beachfront but walking distance to Lincoln Road Mall. Have previously stayed at the Fontainebleau but found it too far away from everything, unless you are happy to eat in the hotel and chill out at the beach/pool.

South Beach or Miami Beach? That's the question now.

Weíve stayed at Eden Roc in one of the corner towers suites which are really nice but youíd need an adjoining room to accommodate you all. They do have family suites too though.

Not stayed at Fontainbleau but weíve been to Hakasan which we love and the inside of the building looked very nice.
Hakasan in Miami is a carbon copy of Hakasan in London (they even burn the same fragrance of inscense I think. If youíve been before and want something different then Iíd not bother eating there, lovely as it is!

I think if I could chose anywhere Iíd go for The Edition because it has our favourite restaurant inside!

A few years back Richard E Grant presented a TV show called ĎAmazing Hotelsí or something like that anyway!
Miami Bach was featured so it might be worth looking it up.

Aside from Matador Room and Hakasan I can thoroughly recommend a trip to a hidden pizza restaurant called Mister 01 btw.
It is tucked away in a locked mall so itís all a bit weird and secretive (a doorman will confront you and then let you in 😬 ) but the food it excellent.
I think booking would be essential

I forgot to say that I donít think they have onsite parking at Eden Roc but there is Valet parking. Itís about $45 per night though.
On subsequent trips we have picked a car up from Alamo upon leaving Miami!
