What a fantastic place to stay while visiting South Beach. The rooms are big, clean, and have wonderful large showers, some rooms even have double vanities. The hotel is situated in the center of all South Beach activities, bands are playing, people are crowding the sidewalks, etc and the interesting thing, that stunned my husband, was that the windows completely...

My wife and I decided to try Miami Beach for her 66th Birthday and we were glad we chose to stay at the Breakwater. It started when I called the night before our stay to confirm our reservation, and I wanted to request a quieter room knowing this location is in the heart of the the entertainment district. Not only... More

A great "boutique" hotel right in the middle of the Art Deco. Good amenities, helpful staff, fluffy towels, right across from Art Deco museum. We were able to get a room facing interior courtyard and the noise from nightlife was acceptable.

Great Art Deco hotel in the historic district. Have a very nice room on the second floor. It's sparsely decorated, but clean. Bathroom and shower are very nice and location is superb, but... The noise from the bar next door/under the room is unbelievable. The bar is Oceans 10 and the music must be 100+decibels from noon til 3 am.... More

Talk about location, location, location...This was the best place to be in the heart of it all. The beach, the nightlife, the food, the people. The staff were very accommodating. The restaurant food was excellent; especially the huge 2for1 drinks. The room was spacious and clean. They had bikes available. The rooftop was glorious and we had it almost all... More

I had a quick one night stay at the Breakwater after travelling nearly 24 hours. I just wanted to sleep but this is a noisy hotel. Perhaps it was my room, but even the double glazing didn't shut the music out. Thanks to exhaustion and blocked ears from a nasty head cold, I managed to fall asleep and when I... More

Great staff very friendly. Lovely room with great showering facilities. Right in the heart of south beach. You won't be disappointed if you pick the Breakwater. Complementary water and bicycles. Asked about a restaurant and the girl on reception even took the time to draw me a map.
