Fodor's Expert Review Fontainebleau Miami Beach

4441 Collins Ave., Miami, Florida, 33140, USA Fodor's Choice

Vegas meets art deco at Miami's largest hotel, which has more than 1,500 rooms (in four separate towers, almost half of which are suites), 12 renowned restaurants and lounges, LIV nightclub, several pools with cabana islands, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and a 40,000-square-foot spa. Fontainebleau's main pool is nearly as big as a small lake—complete with islands with private cabanas. DJs play sets around the pools, and on weekends it can be a mix of kids, bachelorette parties, and honeymooners. Truth be told, there's so much going on in and around the hotel that you can easily forget about the downy sands directly behind the property—it almost feels like being on a cruise ship. And in this vein, there's plenty to do for party-ready adults and restless kids and teens alike.
