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.
The personnel does not care about you. Check in not in time. We had to wait in the lobby (can not go to beach without card). We waited for 2 hours (no drinks!), and asked again by ourselves; than we got another room. Unfortunatelly, this was one was also not ready. So again we had to wait for a room. Eventually, we got one where the TV did not work. This was repaired within one or a few hours. I suggest you dress like a pilot from (I think) Lufthansa, than they will notice you, and get a nice room immediately. During check in, I asked to left a remark, that I was very uncomfortable with the situation. Offcourse, at check out, there was not left any remark left behind. We should have complained immediately. I allmost started to cry...Then I got stung by a bee. Probably you have to speak Spanish before staff knows what's going on. Their First Aid Kit consist of sone fluid and bandage.... Went to the reception, same fist aid kit. They did not know what to do, and did not care. So I was asking for a dokter. They told there was a Pharmacy in 2 blocks. Offcourde, there wasn't. Locals said there was a latino Supermarket were they also sell pain killers, that's it. What if I had an allergic reaction? They probably had left me over there. They could not care less.So the hotels looks good, from the outside. And if you have no questions / problems whatsoever, this is an average hotel. But if you are in need of things, this is just life threatening! Oh, at the end we did get a compensation from the assistant manager (who did not spoke to us at all, the reception did all the talking): late check out (wasn't possible, because our plain was leaving) or a drink at the bar.
No issues with the hotel, it was clean and the rooms very big. It's right on the beach which was great.I would recommend asking for a room with a view!It makes all the difference. Staff all friendly and helpful!!
This hotel is top notch. The service from the valet parking to the check in are excellent. Staff are very attentive and helpful. The room are meticulous and have a fresh scent. The breakfast is of the highest quality with an excellent variety. We can't wait to return. This is the kind of service you receive at a 5 star all inclusive resort.
Nice building, kind people, comfortable and clean room overlooking the sea, pool, restaurant, drinks. Do not miss to spend some time in the evenings having a drink next to the pool. I would definitely go again. Highly recommendable.
Came down for 3 nights for my birthday. Managed to get a free upgrade from city view to ocean front for my birthday.Lobby is beautiful, lovely open space with cool seating, staff were attentive.We were on 6th floor, corner room, huge balconies. Room itself was like a 3 star, although clean and comfortable, everything was a bit on the tired side. Bathroom was like a 5 star one, lovely tiles. So that night after a relaxing sleep, we went downstairs to the bar, they served pizza for $10.50 and $.50 extra toppings, I got a pepperoni and mushroom and Johan got a Hawaiian, went outside with some drinks and waited, lovely breeze and Beautiful patio area. Pizzas arrived and they were quite big. Delicious, fresh and tasty toppings, nothing skimped.We had breakfast at the buffet, $20pp plus 9% tax and 20% gratuity incl in bill, little surprised to see tip incl but it's done in most restaurants here. Was actually very nice buffet, mimosas and champagne included, quality items, separate omelette and egg stations. Were some Spanish and Cuban items too.We had dinner buffet as well one night, $29 plus tax and tip again was superb. Cooked to order steak, chicken and salmon. Amazing cheese board and salads too very fresh and tropical. Johan was going nuts over the fresh fruit with the usual plus papayas and mango.Service was impeccable and bottle of house wine only $14. We ate outside in the breeze.The coffee shop was great, delicious coffee and pastries that were only in the $2-$4 range, very reasonable.Pool was lovely, no bathroom outside though had to use lobby bathroom. Boardwalk out back then Beach right there. Now that I've been here I would not call this South Beach, we are about 15 blocks from there, however it's a $5 Uber ride to all the attractions and dining. To be honest the hotels there are older, have no air conditioning and are further from the beach. I prefer this area of town.
