I stayed in the RIU for 1 night/2 days after a cruise in Miami before a flight home to the UK. We were greeted as soon as we walked into the hotel, the staff on the front desk were more than helpful. I was looking to find DASH the Kardashian store which was a few blocks away...the girls on the reception got a map out, found out the exact location for me. The hotel is quite dated, it could do with a referb, but that was nothing as it was clean. Nothing was 'dirty' the only thing i seen was a hair on the bed when we arrived. There's not much on the boardwalk just lots of stray cats, but perfect for a morning walk to clear your head after getting home at 2am from South Beach! The pool area was quite busy when we were there so we went to the beach, literally 30 second walk. The bus stop/taxi rank right outside the hotel to take you wherever. The shop in the hotel is expensive, there is one literally 5 minutes down the road for half the price...which is where there is a subway..italian etc. Dont know why people are complaining, take them with a pinch of salt as yes it could do with a refurb but theres alot worse. They upgraded me as soon as i got there free of charge, we arrived at about 11am and we knew check-in wasnt until about 3pm, and we were just going to drop our bags there and go shopping, however reception made sure they had a room ready for us straight away...lovely. Would stay again.
