Overview

Prior visitors enjoyed hotel's beach, pool and restaurant buffet
Room decor could use a refresh

Nestled along Miami Beach, this RIU outpost places visitors within a few miles of the Lincoln Road Mall, downtown Miami and the Art Deco District. But it's not just the prime location that draws travelers to the hotel. Past guests praised the property's amenities, including its beach, pool and restaurant buffet. When it's time to bed down, guests can retreat to one of 284 guest rooms, each of which is decorated in hues of purple and white and features conveniences like a satellite TV, free Wi-Fi access, a coffee maker and a minifridge. However, some previous travelers noted that the rooms' lack of space and basic, outdated furnishings (despite a 2014 renovation), plus the nearby construction leave a bit to be desired. Hotel service is also hit or miss: While some past guests said the property's employees were friendly and helpful, others noted forgetful staff and slow valet service.

READ MORE 

The Hotel Riu Plaza Miami Beach operates much like a mid-century Miami resort in its heyday: An expansive pool deck for dedicated sun worshippers, plenty of fried food at every meal and, at the center of it all, a sprawling, over-decorated lobby designed for hobnobbing. ... The Riu caters to a new era of guests, many of them traveling on tour packages from Europe.

Guests wandering the lobby will catch a glimpse into the nostalgic past of Miami Beach or they can just enjoy the view overlooking the pool and ocean beyond. All guest rooms have double beds only.
