We needed to get away a two night vacation. We decided to choose the Breakwater Inn & Spa in Kennebunkport. We were greeted by the Inn Manager Milton and the very kind front desk clerk, She gave us a lovely tour of the property before going to our charming room with balcony on the second floor. It was just lovely... More

Had never been to the South Beach area along Miami Beach. Enjoyed the uniqueness of our hotel experience. Check-in was easy. Had never gone "through-a-bar-area" to get to a hotel room, but we did just that on this trip. The bar was buzzing with excitement on a Sunday afternoon. Hotel room was very nice and comfortable. Amenities were neat, along... More

There are a lot of mixed reviews about this hotel on here, and to be honest I was a little wary of staying here. However - It was great! Set on a busy social part of South Beach, right on the beach front in the middle of the stunning Art Deco area. It's busy, it's colorful, it's noisy, and VERY... More

This third time we really enjoyed our stay and we were really really happy with the service that we received from their staff. Natalie and Pablo made our whole stay a lot easier. I would definitely... More

You can choose the option of a quiet room or one of the rooms that over look the courtyard brimming with excitement. We choose the room with views f South Beach and Ocean Drive and although it was very loud we enjoyed the music and found a set of ear plugs is all you need to get a good night... More

Great location. Friendly staff. Stayed in a Junior Suite on the Penthouse floor - room was a good size, comfortable and clean. The "noise" from the downstairs restaurant and bar - not a problem and did not bother us at all. Maybe because we were one of the patrons, having a cocktail and enjoying the Miami nightlife ! :-) Would... More
