Nice hotel offering good food - extensive buffent for breakfast and dinner (you can book halfboard).

Compared to other RIU hotels it is not as fancy amd chique, yet the staff is as friendly and welcoming.

It's located on the north end of South Beach - an ideal point to start going south to Ocean Drive, Lincoln Ave and ESPAÑOLA WAY. From hotel to the Nikki Beach Club is about 10.00 USD with an UBER.

This hotel has a large mostly white, shiny plaza in the lobby that seems like a shopping center because it's very commercialized. It has two restaurants, one has large photographs of chocolate cupcakes and is more like a cafe, and the other has photographs of fruits and large blocks of cheese. I was put off my these large pictures in the restaurants. The newly remodeled Rui offers some basic hotel amenities like free wifi, a poolside bar, flat screen TV, electronic safes, and breakfast buffet. They also offer water sports on the beaches. The outdoor pool area was very well-lit and led to the boardwalk, which has amazing views of the beach. I didn't find the hotel charming or attractive. It felt more like a commercial shopping center. No one was especially attentive either. The best thing is the location since its central on Collins Ave., near both South Beach and the upper side of Miami Beach. So you get the best of both worlds.

This hotel chain is extremely popular internationally but only has one location in the US - Miami Beach. The lobby is overwhelmingly impressive, with glass balls floating down from the ceiling like underwater bubbles. The property itself is huge, with an onsite restaurant and huge pool area. The rooms are very contemporary with shades of bright purple thrown into the furniture color palette. I would highly recommend this hotel for families, especially because you're far enough from the bustle of South Beach to actually enjoy the hotel and ocean. Also, free wifi can't be beat!

First to Review

Located slightly away from the heart of the action in South Beach, the RIU is a rather large, oceanfront hotel. Upon entering, it's fairly obvious that you're not in a stereotypical, luxury Miami Beach property. This is definitely a budget-friendly alternative. The staff is friendly and attentive, but the hotel needs some major updating. The décor is quite dated. However, the pool is nice and features a convenient snack bar. The rooms are clean, but again, dated. There is also a musty smell lingering in the hallways, possibly from smoking. Overall, it's a perfectly fine hotel. In this city (like most), you get what you pay for. If you need somewhere to stay in a central location, the RIU is certainly not an awful option.

Although the check in felt a little longer than necessary, the staff was very friendly and helpful at the front desk. The lobby had a grand, regal feel to it but the furniture was a little dated and could definitely use an update. So, needless to say, I was surprised to see rooms that were simply beautiful, down to every little detail. They were clean, comfortable and immaculate, and the oceanfront view from the balcony is definitely worth the extra money. The hotel is a little far from South Beach, but the place is huge and has a lot of onsite amenities. You could easily find your relaxation groove at the several lounges, restaurant, and pool. They even have a gift shop. RIU is like its own little city.
