Atlantis hotels. The Miami Heat basketball team stayed there when I was there. I won't lie, it was pretty expensive. Spent about $3k for a week of stay. But you do get a lot of perks. There's a private beach and pool at the Cove. You also get access to the water park, and a little aqua-museum. I believe you can access any of these places for a price if you're not a hotel guest.

Petting dolphins was cool too. Definitely check out the hotel even if you don't stay there.
