It's next door to Mango and beatgasm so you can party anywhere you like. The staff is great, really helpful all the time especially Pablo and Juan, won't... More

DO NOT MAKE THE MISTAKE of staying at the Esplendor Breakwater hotel in South Beach!! I stayed at this hotel on 3/15/15-3/17/15. I placed three jackets in the hotel closet and failed to repack them in my luggage when I left. Within 24 hours, I called the hotel and reported the jackets missing. With 100% certainty, the jackets were in... More

Looking for a visual feast? This is it! Great location, beach just a walk across the street and the people/car watching is just the best entertainment for free! The food was fabulous, service excellent and the drinks to die for! I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone, chic, modern and no detail left unturned! We will be back!

I came to the Breakwater for my anniversary last weekend and had a really lovely experience. For a South Beach hotel on Ocean, it wasn't exorbitantly expensive (we also found a deal online) and it was a great area for restaurants, beach, and bars. They offer bikes that you can sign out for free, so I definitely recommend riding out... More
