Mediocre, overrated!

Staff was friendly but not very efficient. Toilet and tub were both clogged and took 3 complaints for someone to go and fix it. Rugas extremely dirty.

South Beach RIU..Great Location, NicePPL

The hotel was very nice in the lobby, outdoor, and around the pool/bar area. The hotel rooms were average plain rooms like staying at the Days Inn Motel or Motel 6. The rooms could use some updating. The standard rooms do not have balconies. No flat screen TV and the shower was not powerful. Im not that picky and the room didnt matter to me because my friends and I were on the beach all day and at night we went to south beach. We used to the room for showers and a couple of hours of sleep. It is in a great location. You can walk or catch a $10 cab ride to the nice part of south beach like lincoln or 10th st.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Go to D'Vine. It is a nice hookah spot with different types of music including arabic. They have outdoor seating, GREAT food. Prices are $12-$20 for dinner. Not expensive. Drinks are $10-$12. It was a very relaxed and laid back place. Not a club type of atmosphere because I do not club. It is located on Lincoln off of washington ave. Go there because its like a mall that has at least 50 restaurants and shops in that perimeter. You will enjoy it. Lincoln is between 16th and 17th st by the way.

Humble but nice

The stay at the Riu hotel was pleasent, not fabulous but good. The hotel was in a great location, there was always a taxi and there was a bus stop right out front. The pool area was extremely nice. The beds were very comfortable and upon check in...we found the rooms to be clean and very fresh smelling. The hotel is not a place to go if you are looking for an experience, it is very relaxed...but not a party or social atmosphere at all. The staff was a slow in response when we called for towels, and in the morning the cleaning person just comes in..I would stay there again on business...but I think for absolute fun...I would stay somewhere else. Overall, I think its great for families, but not so much for singles. Great for business..but not so much for pleasure. Great for leisure...but not if you are looking for a social atmosphere.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Lincoln Drive is where a number of shops and great food are. It is a short drive, but a long walk. Washington Drive is where the nightlife is...again...short drive...but long walk.

Better than expected

The Riu was a pleasant surprise due to the fact that the write ups we had read were not falttering. We found the facility to be very nice with a large pool and only steps from the beach. The Staff was very friendly and the one restaurant offered buffet or ala carte. We really enjoyed our stay. They were remodeling several floors but work was almost unnoticeable.

Shopping tip: Long walk from hotel

$6.00 cab ride (17 blocks) to Lincoln Road. There are a large number of very good restaurants, better than South Beach (Ocean Blvd)especially if youare eating at night.Lots of shops to browse also.
