The check-in staff was very nice and professional. We got off the cruise ship and headed early to the hotel. They allowed us to get checked in and gave us a towel card to sit by the pool. And got the rooms ready as soon as they could.

We truly enjoyed our stay here. The property was clean, service was good, breakfast was great. We didn’t realize how expensive food and drinks are in Miami but the hotel’s weren’t any more are less expensive than anywhere else. It was a family friendly place further north than all the spring breakers, which was good for us.

I believe my expectations were to high. There were nights I couldn’t sleep because people sounded like they were in our room every time someone was in the hallway. It was very noisy. Also I’m glad the breakfast was free because it wasn’t great at all. The staff was friendly and location great but I would not recommend it to anyone.

Dear Kimble, Thank you for your feedback, We are very pleased to hear that you were really well looked after by our professional and friendly staff and we are very pleased to hear that you found the location of our hotel to be good, as it really is, being very central and with good connections. However, on the other hand, we are sorry that we were not able to meet your expectations regarding the breakfast and we regret that we did not live up to your wishes regarding the soundproofing of the room. Do not doubt that we write down what you tell us and we will deal with it with the corresponding department. We hope to have the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Warm Regards, Hotel Riu Plaza Miami Beach Online Reputation Manager

Initial room had black mold spots on wall near shower and rips in window shades. They moved us to a different room the second night which was fine. Overall room was clean and beds were comfortable. Biggest complaint is the chain link construction fence that spans the entire rear of the property separating it from the boardwalk and beach. It makes you feel like you are staying at a construction site. All neighboring properties have nice fences and vegetation as boarders. A staff member confirmed it has been there for months. For that reason alone I would recommend staying elsewhere.

When I booked a RIU hotel for my stay in Miami I though “RIU” as a big name with prestige. What I found in this property was a basic three stars hotel. They are making an effort to stay in business but the dingy appearance of the rooms does not contribute to it. I encountered roaches all over the room climbing on the phone, on my bagel, on the towel, the bed, the garbage 🗑. There was no microwave, no tissue box or a clock in the room. The pool is small and with a door that connects to the beach, so a lot people from the beach that didn’t belong to the hotel enter it for a splash and just occupied the whole pool. In the positive side, the breakfast buffet is really good and the stuff very friendly. Never again I would book this hotel. At least not the Miami property.
