Beautiful hotel with very helpful staff. Everything sbout this hotel was what we wanted about Miami: chic, sexy, in the middle of everything! The pool is wonderful. The night life at the hotel bar/restaurant was loud and lively, which was awesome! And after staying out till 4 am, sleeping was no problem (just close the windows). We will definitely stay... More

From the room to attraction, this vacation was simply amazing. Great quality for price, I honestly did not think that the room was going to be as fantastic as it was. The rooms were extremely clean, spacious and pretty. As soon as we walked in the hotel it was such a dreamy place and the every single employee that helped... More

I booked this hotel because we wanted to see South Beach by day and night and walk on the beach.I had been concerned because of some bad reviews on here. We had a horrible time getting through Miami airport and arrived at the hotel slighly hot and bothered. The lovely receptionist straight away offered us cold water and then did... More

First of all, don't stay here if you like nice country hotels. I stayed for my 50th birthday. It was lively to say the least. Evenings are loud and go on for ever, mornings are quiet. The hotel is lovely and the staff are really helpful. Free international calls was a bonus. The pool is interesting with its glass wall,... More

Breakwater is a great location if you want to be right across from the fabulous beach. It's central to everything. Love that they give out bikes to use. The front desk generously hands out free bottled water and towels for the beach. The gals are very helpful in answering any questions. The rooms are clean and the ladies who clean... More

My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Breakwater. We were offered a beautiful upgrade for a good price, and had an amazing view of the ocean, beach, and Ocean drive. Natalie catered to all of our requests and was very accommodating...bikes, information, bottles if water, ice delivery, friendly, and so much more. Pablo was really friendly too!... More
