Hotel Breakwater is located in the middle of South Beach. At 1 min from the Versace Mansion and all the fun things on Ocean Drive. The rooms are very beautiful, modern and clean. Great staff. Entertaining ambiance. Live music on the terrace. We had a great time. Not for people looking for a quiet time

I booked this hotel via hotwire for a one night stay after the Miami Marathon. I was excited that I was able to get a decently priced hotel in the Art Deco district across from Lummus Park. Knowing it was in the heart of South Beach, I expected a lot of "energy." What I did not expect was the music... More

Fantastic hotel very close to the Beach. You live in the middle of every thing. The Breakwater was everything we expected in an art deco hotel. The rooms were clean, tidy and a very good size. The beds are super. The Breakwater was everything we expected in an art deco hotel. Poul DK

My wife and I stayed at the Breakwater in November. Having read the reviews, I was not expecting a quiet hotel, but then again, if you want a quiet hotel, don't stay on Ocean Drive!

This is by far the worst hotel I've ever stayed at. The front desk staff is extremely rude. The free breakfast was awful and the buffet was dirty looking. Our room was right above the bar and hotel next door that was playing extremely loud music. The music was so loud our room was vibrating, and didn't stop to around... More
