“Again a happy stay at Florida Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2012

This was our 5th visit in 7 years to this hotel and every time we had a good stay. The rooms are almost al refurbished with new paint on the wall and new carpet on the floor. We even noticed some changes in the bathroom! The people at the reception where as kind as always. WiFi is still not for free 24/7 but you get 90 minutes for free every day. And.....now they have WiFi in the rooms as well. But if you are on the beach or at the pool, you can use Free WiFi from the City of Miami Beach! We did not went to the pool, i still hate those people who leave their towels at 7 in the morning and come back at 10 to have a good spot! I still think this should not be tolerated! We always went to our friend Carlito at the beach. Rented two beds and an umbrella for $25 a day! That was perfect for us. Also unbelievable but still possible...you can eat outside (breakfast and dinner) but there is not a smoke free zone!! As a non smoker i find it discusting to enjoy my dinner while people are smoking in the area! RIU do something about this!!

Unfortunatly parking space is a problem at Miami Beach but we used the Hotel Valet Parking. It's $20 a night (cheap compared to next door Palms which charges $36) but waiting almost every for 15-25 minutes for your car is not good! Altough the guys from the Valet Parking did their best to get your car asap i find this a minus point and hopefully this will solved soon.

We stayed 16 days at the Riu and we had a great time! Looking forward to visit the Riu again!

We stayed at the Riu last year and returned this year. We had a wonderful stay again. Hotel is super clean, spacious and service is superb. Location is great, near Lincoll Road Mall, S bus stop on the front of the hotel will take anywhere for 2 dollars each. Parking in the hotel costs usd 20 per day which I think is a bit too much. Pool area is great but I recomend the beach which is great. Breakfast is excellent, generally included in the price of the room, dinner buffet is also excellent but again a bit pricy usd 23 plus tax, tip and drinks (that will add up to 33 aprox each). Personel is wonderful, always helpful and warm. Next time in Miami, we ll stay again for sure.

For a quite reasonable price the RIU Florida Beach is a fine hotel.
Good location, large rooms, clear pool area and excellent breakfast.
Next time in Miami we stay here again.

Great hotel which backs onto a fantastic beach . We stayed in room 935 , not a sea view room but it had a nice view of downtown Miami . Room was spacious and modern . No complaints with the room whatsoever . Buffet breakfast was great also , plenty of choice . Buffet dinner bit on the expensive side though . Some reviews reckon its a 20 min walk to Ocean Drive , more like 40 though. Not a lot outside the hotel and it is a fair way out but it depends on what you want . I prefer to be a bit away from the crowds and noise anyway . Pool area was good but oh that beach is only a stones throw away !!!! Overall the hotel had great staff and was spotless clean . Some of the negative reviews on here seem a little unfair by my experiance anyway . One small point , not many Engish in hotel mainy Dutch and German during my 10 day stay . Take a trip to Key West .... Fantastic !!! ENJOY MIAMI !!

Room Tip: The 9th floor is fully renovated .
