Aesthetically, the Eden Roc Miami Beach falls somewhere between the whitewashed cool of many boutique South Beach stalwarts and the familiar look of an upscale chain. The resort’s 631 rooms and suites sprawl across a renovated historic building dating back to the mid-1950s, as well as a newer tower added in 2006. The decor is comfortable but somewhat predictable (safe, muted colors and basic furnishings). That said, the guestrooms follow a familiar floor plan, save a cheeky view from the tub into the bedroom area in some rooms. For a roomier feel — think floor-to-ceiling windows and a jetted whirlpool tub — book one of the suites. The views alone are worth it.
Bed and Bath
Even the smallest room categories (Deluxe and Intracoastal) are spacious, at 430 square feet. Even with their size (they’re notable for being some of the larger hotel bathrooms on Miami Beach), though, not all rooms come equipped with separate bathtubs; book a suite if soak time is imperative. However, all bathrooms do have rainfall showerheads, plush bathrobes and a selection of Aveda hair and skin products.
The upside of being two miles north of sceney South Beach is that Mid-Beach is less crowded and the water more pristine. Two beach chairs are included in the resort fee, but there are four different pools to hop between if that’s the scene that fits you best. For prime relaxation, you can book a rooftop cabana at the Spa at Eden Roc, but you’ll still feel quite pampered in the spa’s main (coed) lounge, with its cream loungers and pretty potted plants and soothing sculptures. Treatment-wise, couples massages and four-handed facials are popular, and the scrub bar is a great addition to the spa’s sauna and rain showers. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, sample classic food infused with Latin and Caribbean flavors at the oceanfront Cabana Beach Club, or snack on casual fare alongside a dirty martini at the circular lobby bar.
In the Area
The Eden Roc’s most interesting neighbors are its fellow Mid-Beach hotels. Next door is the Vegas-esque Fontainebleau and its slew of high-profile restaurants including Scarpetta and Hakkasan — worth a visit for the luxe Chinese den decor alone. Also here is the LIV nightclub, which plays host to internationally acclaimed DJs five nights a week. Just around the bend on Collins is the Soho Beach House; while most of it’s open only to members and guests, you can get a peek at the scene with a meal at Cecconi’s (the fairy-light-strung patio leads onto the main pool deck, making for prime people watching). And to prove that Miami can pour a craft cocktail with the best of ’em, there’s the Broken Shaker, where locals and cool kids alike sip mixology-driven drinks infused with fresh samples from the garden.
How to Get There
we usually stay at fancy places while in Miami. This was bit last minute trip planned and we had to give another place a try. We are so happy to stay at the Edenroc, we found our new favorite place in miami. The staff was on point in every way. I could tell the management did a great job because this is always a reflection from the very top. Special thank you for honoring my request and assigning suite #2050 the dessert and prosecco surprise was a nice touch. It was a highlight of our trip. One of the top hotels we have experienced internationally and domesticly. Without hesitation, we would definitely return. Thank you everyone at the Edenroc!
Loved this hotel. Pools were heated for the children, rooms were spacious and clean. Hairdryer and straighteners in room. It was our anniversary and strawberries and prosecco were left in our room and cookies and milk for the girls. Can not fault the hotel or staff.
From our initial contact with the staff there the service was superior. Mr. Barrios the Reservation Supervisor absolutely went above and beyond to help us with a unique and complicated situation. We actually needed to transfer reservations from a different hotel outside of the US that is owned by the same company due to a medical situation preventing me from traveling outside of the US. Mr. Barrios worked across counties to ensure our vacation plans were not ruined. His willingness to assist, responsiveness, and ability to resolve the situation very quickly was greatly appreciated. My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Eden Roc and found the rest of the staff to be just as helpful, but it was Mr. Barrios who made our vacation possible. He even followed up with us while we were at Eden Roc to ensure we were enjoying our trip and offered his services if he could assist in any way. It’s not often you encounter service like this and I am glad I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Barrios.
I just checked out of Nobu/Eden Roc and I got the all inclusive option offered, I love the fact that there is even an option for all inclusive in the US. This hotel was fabulous from check in to check out. We were greeted with such amazing hospitalty and escorted to our room. We ordered room service almost every night after a night out with the girls, breakfast in bed almost every morning, and drinks pool side during the day. All incuded,Yes, ALL INCLUDED! I probably would have spent $1000+ there if I didnt have the all inclusive option but my bill came down to $0.00 at the end of my trip. Super luxury and right on the beach. This is my go to hotel anytime Im in Miami :)
I had mixed-feelings relative to this property as there were some very positive aspects and others which were not up to my expectations for a resort of this caliber.
I stayed in a "inter coastal" view which also overlooked Collins Ave and the main entrance to the property. You could hear the whistle every time the Bellman was trying to summon a taxi. Overall, the room was clean and the bathroom was very spacious but the tile floors were stained with rust and the carpet was not very clean. I had to call the front desk to have maintenance un-clog the bathroom sink. I minor inconvenience but I felt housekeeping should have recognized the problem as very little water would drain. I did find the beds and pillows to be comfortable.
During the busy times, the main bar in the lobby had one bartender who was overwhelmed, frustrated and understandably was taking a bit of attitude as most patrons were expressing their displeasure with a lack of service. I ordered a Grey Goose and tonic ($18.00) and witched her pour Tito's and soda. But since I did not want to add to her frustrations, I accepted the drink.
The Aquatica Bar was even worse. We were looking to grab a quick beer before another commitment but took at least 15 minuets. There was little activity at the bar and our server was on her cell phone after taking the order which seemingly took prescient over running a few cans of beer to the table.
Malibu Farms was amazing! Food was exceptional and service was decent as well.
Although I did not eat in Nobu, others in my traveling group did and indicated it was "amazing."
I did not use the pool or any of the pool amenities but took a few walks to this area which was very nice.
I would have reservations relative to staying here again as I travel to Miami Beach often and have other properties which I prefer.
