Seeking the perfect destination for your next family vacation? Look no further than a dreamy oceanfront resort located in bustling Miami Beach. Teeming with activities for kids, offering large rooms ideal for families, and with the dazzling city of Miami right at your fingertips, Fontainebleau makes where to head this summer a no-brainer.

Just in case you’re still on the fence, here are eight reasons to book this resort ASAP.

The Location is Unbeatable

A truly beachfront property, Fontainebleau is located right on Collins Avenue in lively Miami Beach and has become an iconic landmark. Enjoying the ocean waves and bright sun is as easy as walking out your door. Not to mention the famed colorful art deco buildings of Miami Beach that surround the property. It’s the optimal home base for exploring everything else Miami has to offer travelers and families, from historic neighborhoods to museums to beautiful state parks.

There’s Plenty of Space for the Whole Family

Large two-bedroom suites offer plenty of room for the whole family. Everyone can appreciate family time together in the spacious sitting and dining areas or retreat to relaxing rooms for a bit of privacy. Many suites also feature private balconies with breathtaking views for relishing a cool sea breeze. Plus, with penthouse suites giving families the option to have up to five bedrooms, you can even bring grandparents and friends along for the fun.

Kids Have Endless Entertainment Options

The FB Kids’ Camp lets families choose between full-day and half-day options. Kids can also just sign up to participate in one of the hour-long activities during the day. Every day presents new choices for daily activities, led by experienced Adventure Guides. The ever-changing assortment of options includes everything from making sand art to being wowed by a magician to racing against the clock down a waterslide as part of an inflatable obstacle course.   


Enjoy a Virtually Endless Poolscape and Miles of Pristine Beach

For kids looking to splash around and revel in endless pool time, Fontainebleau beckons. Bask under the Miami sun at the signature Bowtie pool. Parents can easily watch kids from the comfy lounge chairs and when little ones need to refuel there’s a poolside menu. Private cabanas featuring WiFi, butler service, a mini fridge and more make it easy for families to create a base spot for the day.

Even the youngest of guests can enjoy the many shallow pools and the Family pool, perfect for kids’ playtime. Get into full summer vacation mode with a dive-in movie. If waves and sand are more your speed, the ocean and beach are just steps away.

The Varied Dining Options Are All Delicious

From picky eaters to foodies, everyone will be pleased with the wide selection of delectable restaurant options at Fontainebleau. Serious food lovers will delight in trying Scarpetta, the Italian restaurant led by James Beard Award recipient Scott Conant. Named one of the top 50 restaurants in the world, Hakkasan serves up mouthwatering dim sum nightly. Meanwhile, young eaters will love Pizza & Burger by Michael Mina, a casual dining option serving exactly what you think it would. With 12 restaurants ranging from fine dining to casual, plus room service, one thing is for sure, no one in your family will go hungry during your stay.  


Babysitting Services Make Life Easy

For babies and toddlers who aren’t old enough for the FB Kids’ Camp and activities, or if you’re looking to enjoy an adult-only night out, Fontainebleau makes it easy with babysitting services offered every day between 7 am and 4 am. You can rest easy knowing that all babysitters are experienced in working with children.

There’s Nightlife for the Whole Family

Every Friday and Saturday the resort offers Kids’ Night Out from 7-11 pm. Kids can play with new-found friends and enjoy movies and games. Parents can savor a date night dinner, hit one of the bars or lounges for a cocktail or dance the night away at LIV.


Art and History Abound

The resort and building itself is a cultural landmark full of history that has played host to a plethora of celebrities and icons since its opening in 1954. Fontainebleau is famed for its curved angles and flamboyant design. Designers strived to retain many of the original design elements, including the “Staircase to Nowhere,” also known as the “floating staircase.” Fontainebleau offers a world class visual arts collection, the signature art includes James Turrell’s light installations, chandeliers by Ai Weiwei, sculptures by Yves Klein, ceramics by Mineo Mizuno, neon sculpture by Tracey Emin and paintings by Robert Rauschenberg and Darryl Pottorf. Additionally, you won’t want to miss the carefully selected works of art specially chosen to complement each guest room.
