Overall excellent stay! The staff is very attentive, friendly and courteous. The room was clean and comfortable. The food outside at the two restraunts was good. Hotel is in the heart of South Beach and close to everything. The one negative would be the pool. Pool is really not a pool. Build a real pool please so we can swim... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The staff was friendly, the accommodations were nice, and free bike rental was included. The locations was marvelous. I was underwhelmed by their breakfast however. For the class of hotel, I thought the breakfast would be a better quality. Also this hotel is right next to a club. If you plan to party, this... More

We were relaxing at the pool and my husband went downstairs to order food. Since he wanted to go back to the pool and eat it the waitress instructed him that when it came up to take it - so he did. He had already given our room number to charge it to the room. About 30 minutes later the... More

We found this hotel to be pretty good as far as convinience to the beach, right across the street. There are 2 parts to this hotel and we had to walk thru the restaurant area if we wanted to go to the hotel lobby. There is a side entrance that you accessed with room key. The room was as pictured... More

I wanted to enjoy this stay but really wish we had a plan in place for parking and had considered the 24 hour noise. We drove by the front of the hotel at about 4:40 pm on Saturday and didn't see a sign for a valet or anything anywhere so we drove north to 1501 Collins and had to pay... More

The service we received at the Breakwater was superb and the room was clean, modern and ideally located. We had just arrived from a week in the Amazon jungle and needed a place for R&R before heading back to NYC. Perfect place to relax in the sun and to get rid of the mosquito bites. Sometimes you need a little... More

Hotel has been refurbished and it shows! The junior suite is spacious and quiet despite all of the reviews I read. The staff are eager to please and the location is in the heart of the action. Do not recommend if you are looking for a restful vacation!

My wife and I visited Breakwater Restaurant a number of times while on our Honeymoon. We enjoyed the ambiance (music, premier league on the TV, fans), the food was great and the servers went the extra mile to make sure we were happy. Will defiantly go back!!!!!
