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
The breakfast here is amazing. The buffet is not like other buffets. The food is excellent, healthy, and a great variety. I’d to specifically mention Gregory, our server. This guy is top notch and was so nice that he made our experience extra special!
Great location , large rooms, fantastic amenities, wonderful service. Excellent food , especially nobu :) Ariel was our server and took great care of us!! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a good hotel for a reasonable price
Last Saturday I visited the Eden Roc Resort for my birthday and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed my experience. I received assistance from a young woman named Courtney during my stay and she was exceptional. She helped me on the beach and made my birthday special. I was wowed with a free glass of Chandon ☺️
I’d like to preface this review by saying “it’s the small things in life”......
every morning for the past week I’ve been eating at the hotel buffet & every morning without fail Mr. Gregory greets me with a smile a warm hello and the offer of ice coffee (which I usually need to recover from the night before) his warm & inviting attitude has me smiling ear to ear & ready to face the day!!! God bless this man & his kind soul <3
Here for work so we experienced banquet food and meeting rooms as well as sleeping room.
The suites were lovely, thermostats have some limitations, so if you are sensitive to temperature you may find like I did that you have to keep the blinds drawn all days to limit the sun from heating things up. Toiletries are lovely and water temp and pressure was very good. Room,service menu and restaurants are kinda limited for basics, but it’s close to options you can get to quickly.
Banquet food was excellent - some of the best I’ve had. Meeting rooms are in the basement and the sewer stench was permitted everything. This must be a constant problem as the wee glade plug ins in every room and when we left for breaks or lunches someone obviously did a spray walk thru.
I arrived early and had to wait almost 3 hours for a room - though I watched numerous others in my group get escorted up right away which was super frustrating. I’d come back though.
