Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Central Miami Beach location, two blocks from the beach
  • Charming on-site Cuban cafe, Morenos, with outdoor bar
  • Free shuttle to Miami International Airport
  • A rooftop swimming pool and tropical ground level pool
  • Modern and stylish guest rooms with stocked minibars
  • Free cocktail hour each evening

Cons

  • Building one has dark rooms and hallways
  • The rooftop pool is a little bland
  • Fee for Internet access
  • Some noise complaints

Bottom Line

The 52-room Riviera Suites in Miami Beach is a modern and funky boutique with lots of tropical charm and Latin flavor, along with a Cuban restaurant and landscaped swimming pool. The two-building hotel is located two blocks from the beach and both luxurious Ocean Drive and the scene on Collins Avenue are within easy walking distance. Rooms are modern and hip with big flat-screen TVs and nicely stocked minibars, but rooms facing the Morenos restaurant/bar may get noisy at night.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

A historic and glamorous boutique

The lobby of the Riviera Suites is modern and bright with windows facing the street. Free cocktails in the evening pull guests away from the two swimming pools and on-site Cuban restaurant, Morenos. Indoor and outdoor clusters of seating make the space feel expansive while art gallery coffee table books and paintings by Miami artists add a local touch.

 Location

In the party scene of chic Miami Beach

The Riviera Suites is located just behind the Art Deco epicenter of Collins Avenue and two blocks from the beach. The posh shops and restaurants of Ocean Drive and the buzzing scene of Lincoln Road are all within easy walking distance, while Miami's hourly bike rental program offers fast access up and down South Beach for even more nightlife options. The Miami International Airport is about 25-minutes away by car.

 Rooms

Unique and clean with attention to style

Classic rooms are decorated in all white with pops of color while the luxurious one-bedroom suite has bold blue walls, wood paneling, and cowhide rugs. Flat-screen TVs, mini-bars stocked with booze and snacks, and C.O. Bigelow Apothecaries bath products are found in every room. Balcony rooms face the street and coffee addicts will have to book a luxury suite for a Keurig. The rooms and hallways in building one are a bit dark.

 Features

Two swimming pools, free cocktails, and a Cuban restaurant

The Riviera Suites has a rooftop swimming pool and a smaller pool next to Morenos Cuban Cafe for lounging and free happy hour every evening. Free transportation to the airport and back is a nice perk, though some guests have complained about long wait times.

 Bottom Line

The 52-room Riviera Suites in Miami Beach is a modern and funky boutique with lots of tropical charm and Latin flavor, along with a Cuban restaurant and landscaped swimming pool. The two-building hotel is located two blocks from the beach and both luxurious Ocean Drive and the scene on Collins Avenue are within easy walking distance. Rooms are modern and hip with big flat-screen TVs and nicely stocked minibars, but rooms facing the Morenos restaurant/bar may get noisy at night.
