“Great Hotel”
Reviewed 11 May 2012

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 .

I stayed at the Riu Hotel during the Hip Hop memorial festival May-June 2011. The hotel was pleasant enough. On arrival we were shown to our room we wanted a sea view and were promptly shown a bigger room with a beautiful sea view rather than the construction site of the other one at no extra charge. rooms a little dated but quite adequate. Rooms cleaned daily. Theres a fridge in the room. We stayed on bed and breakfast basis...cant complain plenty to choose from from. As well as an egg station. There a shops including a Subway in close proximity. Staff were very helpful i didn't really notice a language barrier as some have mentioned.

The Hotel backs onto the beach. Buses run right outside and across the road takes you to Ocean drive and Washington St where you'll find lots of Bars, Clubs, Shops and Restaurants including the famous wet willies.

Nothing can prepare you for the event that is Black Beach weekend. So if you dont like huge crowds of people, Hip Hop blasting from sound systems and cars. Men calling you every other step you take and paying extortionate prices during that period...Don't go during the memorial weekend.

But overall it was an experience...I like new experiences, so at least i can say I did it, but i wouldn't repeat that one.

The hotel looked nice initially but check in took forever and we were the only people checking in. After eventually checking we got to our room which was OK, we had a nice view of the building site next door but we could see a little bit of the beach. The buffet was overpriced and basic too. We were conveniently located on the beach, literally 10 meters out of the back gate so couldn't ask for more and the beach was beautiful too. Expected a little more for $150 a night, wouldn't stay there again.
