Riu Florida Beach
- What's Included
OverviewThe stunning hotel Riu Florida Beach has an ideal beachfront location in the heart of South Miami Beach's world famous nightlife.
We found a really good last minute deal and enjoyed our stay. The pool is nice, the beach was beautiful and the room was clean and the bed comfortable.Valet parking was available for $32 per night which is fair for Miami.
lobby areas and pool beautiful. rooms are dated and simple. No matter how low we turned down the AC, never got below 73 degrees. Called desk who sent up a maintenance person that spoke 0 english, we had the thermostat set to 68, he turned it down to 66 and said it will take awhile to get cooler (it has been at 68 for hours without ever getting below 73. We waited awhile and then called down ... Michelle told us she would speak to her manager about getting us a different room. Needless to say no one ever called back or checked on us. we gave up waiting, as we weren't going to ruin our whole vacation waiting. Tried to use the in room safe, couldn't get it work...was told we had to rent the batter for 2.00 a day ... i've never heard of something so absurd. Half the listed TV channels didn't work, but i presumed we be told they would turn them on for us at 2.00 per day each... really felt nickled and dimed.
Had a good stay here back at the beginning of September. Breakfast is tasty, rooms are clean. The bathrooms are a bit awkward, class doors and they do not close all the way. Other than that, would stay here again.
Having read some of the negative reviews, I was a bit worried about our stay here. In reality, there was nothing to worry about. The first room we were given smelled heavily like smoke which made my allergies act up. I don't know if someone smoked in that room or if that was because that floor used to be a smoking floor when smoking was still allowed in hotel rooms. They switched us to another floor with the same style room. This room looked like many of the other Riu's with the dark wood. It also had a bit of an update with the new purple that is seen in some of the renovated Riu's. The furniture, however, is really dated. That was fine, however, as we were hardly in our room. We were on the side of the hotel which gave us just a wee little view of the ocean. The room had a safe which we paid extra for which was great so we could store our passports and electronics. We arrived early on check in day so we changed into our suits and went to the pool. We paid for drinks and lunch by the pool. The pool is smaller than the other Riu resorts but just as fun with music playing. The chlorine was really high in the pool both days that we were there. It's nice to have a hotel directly on the beach but if you want to sit out on the beach chairs, you have to pay. Our rate included breakfast and dinner and unfortunately we were only able to take advantage of the dinner on one day. It was a smaller version of a Riu resort buffet but it was really good. Lots of variety and fresh items. We used the valet and they were quick and efficient in bringing our car around. I really liked this Riu and would stay here again.
Well what can I say,after reading reviews from all around the world here’s one from the uk.From the very first day until the last day we both had a wonderful time at the Riu plaza.Firstly we had a city room which was beautifully cleaned every day,the room was perfect with a fantastic shower in the ensuite.The reception staff were fantastic too,nothing was to much trouble for them including wake up calls.Breakfast is fabulous full English,omelettes bagels yogurts salmon everything you need really Directly outside the hotel you can catch the middle beach trolley bus into town and return for free.If I had a complaint it would only be a moan about the elevators but what the hell your on holiday what’s the rush.Would definitely return to this hotelThank you riu plaza
