A mainstay on the hottest hotels of Miami list, the Delano not only offers direct beach access, but also features one of the most popular pool party scenes on South Beach.

Go for a dip and cool off in a picturesque setting that’s straight out of a magazine and enjoy the scene.
Fontainebleau Miami Beach
For the ultimate beach resort experience, the Fontainebleau is pure oceanfront heaven. Featuring more than 1,500 rooms, the spacious resort is a destination within itself. The Fontainebleau’s poolscape combines “walls of water” with multiple free-form pools—all with stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. Offering a luxury experience for couples or groups, there are a variety of cabana options including the Island Cabana at the center of a circular pool and located in the heart of all the action.
The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach

Listen to live music in the afternoons on the weekends and soak up the sunshine and ocean breezes.
W South Beach
Sporting a swanky scene for in-the-know travelers, the W South Beach is a place to see and be scene. Kick back in a cabana at one of the two disappearing edge pools or opt for a chaise lounge on the beach to enjoy the sand and surf.
