Amazing amazing amazing. I came just for the spa and it is the best in the world. Wish I could afford to go back again and again. Total luxury. The staff were fantastic. Make sure you come early to use the facility, the showers and steam room.

This resort is absolutely gorgeous and beautiful, but what makes it exceptional to every other place in the Miami and the world is the staff.
