Fontainebleau didn’t live up to its reputation
We staid at Fontainebleau with my wife and our 7 month old baby for 7 nights in the middle of December 2019. This was our third time in Miami Beach, but the first family vacation with a baby. We got a Deluxe room with a bay view that was located in the Versailles tower. The room was okay, but the sound insulation was terrible and we could hear all the traffic from Collins Ave (heavily trafficked with lots of loud motorcycles and sports cars) and even the sound from neighboring rooms flushing their toilets. Some of these sounds woke up the baby throughout the night. The view from the room was nice but the window was very dirty. Fontainebleau is a huge resort hotel with a very beautiful pool area. Talk to the pool guys about where to pick a spot that suits your preferences, because some spots get more sun than others. We always picked a spot on the artificial grass, which we covered with a couple of towels between our sun beds and the baby enjoyed playing there in the shade. The umbrellas in the pool area are complementary, but on the beach you have to pay extra for them. The La Côte Restaurant is great, but the music is just too loud. The by far biggest downside with the pool area is the loud music coming from the day parties every day of the weekend. Even though there were no guests partying (max 40 people), they kept playing an incoherent mix of EDM and hip hop on full volume that echoed throughout the pool area. This is disturbing for the majority of the guests.
