Riviera Suites South Beach, a South Beach Group Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We enjoyed the Havana feel and nice staff. The heated pool area was adorable, rooftop pool a little blah. Great bar area, fun bartenders and wait staff! Great location!

This is my first time here and it was hard to find somewhere to stay until I came across this listing they are clean friendly and it’s 2 blocks away from the beach I highly recommend this hotel

Upscale apartment living suite that is minutes walk away from the beach. Really liked the location as it is right off the main street block of hotels, therefore less busy. The hotel room could have used more lighting inside the apartment, but besides that, great hotel and location.

Pretty decent hotel that I’ve stayed at in a while. I had the balcony room. It was a little bit bigger than your average hotel room, the balcony was really nice and the bed was really comfortable. Location of the hotel to the beach and other places was pretty cool as you can walk to many places without having to take your car out of its parking spot. Minutes from the beach too !!! Hotel staff was respectable, and cleanliness was respectable too.

Great hotel with a great location , 3 min to the beach and 10 min to ocean drive ( walking distance) Across the street there is a good deli ! Affordable price as well ! Definitely recommend!

Nice hotel artsy beautiful landscaping And decorations

Went to lunch at the hotel restaurant, and was very disappointed. The service was exceptionally slow, and the food was not good at all. I will stay at the hotel, again but will avoid the restaurant

Hotel staff go above and beyond to assure a quality stay. They are friendly and hospitable. No complaints about room or hotel. It is a short walk to the beach and local bars & restaurants. I would stay again.

Great experience!!! This is our second time there

great location and service staff everywhere. Chairs at South beach...free cocktail hour at night....transport to Miami...all included. Great Italian restaurant across street ( SYLVANNOS) so drink wine and walk 20 feet home. No UBER needed.

Really love this hotel. It’s cozy and close to the beach and Collins Ave (a block away). Lots of activities and places to eat close by. Lincoln road walking distance. One complaint only- beds (matress) are too soft. Railings are worn out. Other than that- great stay!

The hotel was old and it had a very strong smell of carpet deodorizer. the rugs were old and beat up in the common areas as well as in the room. Our room was decorated in dark colors including the paint on the wall which was attractive but there wasn’t enough lighting in the room to offset the darkness. As we walked to our room i noticed you can see light coming through some of the room doors. That’s not privacy. The lobby and room we stayed in, in building 3 - i believe, need updating. When staying in south beach spend the money on a Lux hotel.

My friend and I landed in Miami and took the free shuttle service to Riviera Suites on a Monday night. We were welcomed right away by the front desk agent, Santiago - who was very friendly and accommodating. Originally, we were supposed to have a room with one classic queen bed but asked him if we would be able to get upgraded to a room with two beds. Luckily, there was room available and were given a whole suite for no extra charge, which went above and beyond our expectations. I wish we would have taken pictures of the room, it was very spacious and beautiful. Definitely made a difference in our stay! The hospitality was greatly appreciated. P.S. We walked a short 5 minute walk to the beach, it's near everywhere, if you are looking to go to Wynwood it is about 20 minutes away with an Uber.

We enjoyed the hotel for the most part but there were a few complaints... first the room thermostat was kind of jacked up it wouldn’t let you adjust temp in the middle of the night it got super hot and when we tried to adjust it wouldn’t work. Second the restaurant isn’t well equipped to handle large groups which they had each night and we ended up waiting over a half hour for service. Lastly the floor balcony are near the kitchen and trash kind of a lot going on there.

Loved our stay at Riviera Suites! Very nice and comfortable hotel with lots of greenery, and cute artsy decor. Wonderful restaurant with an island ambiance that serves free drinks from 7-8 every night with love band. Friendly bar staff that can give you suggestions on all the fun places to visit. Hotel only couple blocks from the beach, and very walkable to everything that is happening in South Beach, but away enough from loud music. Good for couples and families with kids. Will definitely come back!

Stayed in the beginning of the week for a quieter stay. Rooms were a nice size and clean. We had a great stay. Front desk service was great. Especially Lamar.
