Family-friendly hotel near South Beach with pools and breakfast buffet

All-inclusive travelers might know the name Riu from past vacations, but this Miami Beach property is different with bookings including room only. The 284-room hotel has direct beach access, an adult and children's swimming pools and a poolside bar and grill. An extensive breakfast buffet -- which includes on the spot cooking stations -- draws the regulars and guests can pay separately.  South Beach's major attractions, from the Art Deco District to Lincoln Road Mall, are less than two miles away.

Highlights

  • Children's and adult swimming pools
  • Extensive breakfast buffet
  • Close to South Beach nightlife and attractions
  • Coral restaurant with terrace
  • Free gym
Rooms

Guests choose from superior rooms and superior rooms with ocean views. Copper-colored linens, curtains and carpets achieve a tropical feel, while standards like LCD TVs and ceiling fans lend comfort. Basic amenities cover satellite TV, central air and a mini refrigerator. Some rooms have balconies and can interconnect with other rooms.

Features

Palm-tree lined grounds and a well-rounded buffet pamper guests aiming for the resort experience. A manicured pool area -- complete with children's and adult pools -- is the place to lounge when visitors aren't using the gym or dining at Alligator, the poolside bar and grill, or Coral, another spot for alfresco dining. Coral restaurant requires men to wear long trousers at dinner.

Great time for all

We were there with one other couple and the room was good sized. The shower was amazing and we had a refridgerator which helped. The food in the cafe and at the pool bar was fantastic. Excellent customer service all around. The valet was worth the $30 a day. It's north of the main action but plenty of great shops and restaurants within walking distance and everything else a short cab ride away.

Just ok

Went to Riu for 5 day celebration in Miami. Plus- on the beach, recently remodeled Neg--boring very quiet in Lobby pool area lots of all day construction notice. Food and little coffee stand/store expensive w 3 people standing around but none knew what to do. $5 for a cheap bottle of water. Our A/C didn't work. Very noisy in halls and adjoining rooms. Our room smelled musty all the time. Just not a very exciting or lively stay

Would stay here again

It was a great price for the location. The room was nicely and recently decorated. Their was still some evidence of the age of the hotel, but nothing bad and mostly nice.

"The bad, the terrible, and the worse"

This trip compared to my previous trips was horrible! The hotel had a hidden charge that was not listed. When I went to Las Vegas in February it was fantastic, and there was no hidden charges. They were up front about additional fees. No one in the Hotel spoke english. The hotel room was dark, dank, and dem. I was surprised when the Hotel had absolutely no wash clothes!!!!! I would NEVER stay at the RIU Miami Beach Hotel again, or any other RIU for that matter!
