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
I have stayed at Eden Roc in Miami the past few nights. Life is good, views are perfect. Anywhere in Miami you pay for the great time you have, but at Eden Roc, I got my money’s worth. Great service all around, especially to my servers Felicia and Milica and John S, all of them made us feel at home. Felicia gave us ideas where to enjoy our vacation while suggesting us to basically stay here. Great staff gives me great vibes. Great hires to the team that hired these 3 gems!!!
The Eden roc is fabulous! The rooms are brand new and clean, the lobby is beautiful and the staff is one of the friendliest around. We are loving our stay, and will definitely be back. The only complaint I have is that the pool area seems to be a little dated - but everything else is brand new! We will be back :)
Love love love this resort!!! Vojislav (aka Vlove) Abi, John Soto (Snowman) & Igor. Best service ever! They knew how to take care of us and always had smiles on their faces! Easy to talk to and answered any questions we had. Beautiful resort beautiful rooms clean and all around fabulous resort. Highly recommend!
Amazing resort with very friendly service. The location is a short uber ride or Bike ride to any destination in South Beach. The Bartenders by the pool:Vojislav, Igor, Abi and John S, made the trip an exceptional experience. Will definitely be back
I have had the best service ever at the bar. I had the best time of my life I will remember this trip forever. My bartenders were there to serve me whenever I needed them and were very friendly towards me and made my trip amazing. The bartenders I had were Igor, vojislav, abi, and john Soto. If you are at this hotel you need to make sure these are your bartenders because they make for a very fun time and a very good drink. (:
