I’ve stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. On check in they charged me deposit of 100 USD and was told they’d refund after checkout . I have emailed hotel twice last month and a half, they haven’t replied and not refunded the money either. Very disappointed , would not recommend staying there!

My husband and I came to South Beach Miami to relax at the beaches, eat good food, shop, and go on tours. This hotel is within walking distance (about 15 minutes) of the outdoor Lincoln Road Mall where there are lot of restaurants and shops. The hotel is about 5 minutes walking distance from the beach. Included in our stay, we received vouchers for lounge chairs on the beach. The hotel has a cuban-themed bar/restaurant that stays open until the late evening playing loud music. The hotel is about half a block from a main street so there is not as much foot traffic in front of this hotel but if you want some more excitement, it is not hard to find since you are close to many other hotels. We worked with staff Amaury, Christopher, Vob, and Arismendy who were all very helpful and friendly. They were very knowledgeable about the area and helped suggest tourist activities. The hotel itself did not offer a few amenities I would have liked such as earlier check-ins and later check-outs, and were under-staffed at their cafe so service was slow.

Dear Btravels25, Thank you for your wonderful review of the Riviera South Beach. We are very happy you enjoyed your visit and our team was helpful and accommodating. As you mentioned, the hotel is just off the main street so it offers a quieter setting while still being close to the action. Mas Cuba Cafe & Bar is our guests' favorite! Did you get a chance to enjoy our complimentary happy hour? The mojitos are delicious. We are very close to the beach as well as restaurant, bars, museums, and the Lincoln Road Mall. The area is very popular and we are glad you had a good time staying with us. Thank you for sharing your feedback on the check-in and check-out times. We sometimes can accommodate an earlier check-in but it is a little harder when the hotel is booked up. We do offer luggage storage before and after, so that helps a little bit as our guests can enjoy South Beach just a little longer. Thank you again for being our guest and leaving such a nice review! We hope to see you again soon! V.

It was an ok hotel located near the beach and with a generally relaxed feel. We had a health incident however and the hotel was extremely non-accommodative. Customer service seems like an uncertain and meh thing until it's of concern.
