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!
