My fiance caught a great deal at Hotel Breakwater the weekend after Ultrafest for my 30th birthday, and holy crap was it EPIC. I mean, seriously the best spot on South Beach.
We got a VIP Penthouse Suite which had a private hottub and lounge area on the rooftop. It also has a private connecting door to the rooftop lounge that overlooks Ocean Dr and the actual 'beach' on South Beach.
There's a club nestled in between this hotel and the one next door, just underneath the pool a DJ is spinning dance music from 2pm to 6am.
Having the VIP Penthouse with the private rooftop lounge and hottub was absolutely essential to staying in South Beach. When we were tired of the club, (and spending an absurd amount of money on drinks) we were all able to go upstairs and party in our room, with our liquor, and the music at a perfect level to talk over yet still enjoy.
The room itself was fantastically appointed. We had a pullout couch in addition to the regular bed, plus a seating area, and everyone was able to comfortably move around when everything was the most chaotic.
I've seen complaints about this hotel from families with children, and I can understand why. This location was meant to be used for PARTYING and enjoying all the delicious nightlife that Miami, specifically South Beach, has to offer.
We had an amazing time at Hotel Breakwater. It was the most epic 30th birthday I could have ever imagined.
