I love this resort and recommend it to clients whenever I can! Its located on Key Biscayne via a bridge from Miami and although it’s close to everything it seems like a world away.
With 490 rooms this resort is large which means it has tons to offer guests but doesn’t feel like a mega-resort.
Here are the dining and lounge options:
Thursday – Saturday have live band
Located inside the resort on the main level, it’s a Cuban rum bar and lounge
Serves breakfast (where you will receive your Virtuoso breakfast) ,Lunch, Dinner along with a Sunday brunch.
Miami’s only ocean-front Mexican restaurant serving lunch and dinner. I ate here during my visit and it’s really good! Be sure to ask for the guacamole.
Dune Oceanfront Burger Lounge

Eat here for lunch or dinner and be sure to meet Geno, the bartender, and have one of his signature Mojitos. They’re awesome!

Kids of all ages won’t be able to resist this pool-side ice cream parlor.
