Situated on the famed Miami Beach strand, 2 miles from South Beach, oceanfront Riu Florida Beach is front and center to 1 of the hottest resort areas. The retro, 1940s-era facade houses modern decor, amenities, and activities, making this hotel a fun, family-friendly find.
Riu's guestrooms are easy on the eyes, as most boast a view of the sea, beach, or pool. If you manage to pry yourself away from the window, you can make use of the in-room WiFi and satellite TV.
Besides the many beach-centric recreation options, Riu houses its own family-friendly restaurant, El Coral, open for breakfast and dinner. You won’t want to miss either of the hotel’s conveniently located bars, whether you're poolside or lounging in the lobby.
If you're feeling full after an evening of dining, you may want to check out the fully equipped fitness center. With an array of treadmills, cycles, total body trainers, and more, you can find the equipment you need to stay on track with your workout routine.
Riu's boardwalk leads to some of the hottest beaches in Miami. To admire other views of the strand, you can rent bikes, wave runners, or parasails. Golfers can hit the links at nearby Miami Beach Golf Club, an 18-hole course located 2 miles southwest.
