“Such a great hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

I can't say enough positive things about our stay here! We looked at so many reviews online before booking I honestly felt overwhelmed. I don't know how many times my friend and I said "we booked the best hotel!" during our stay. The customer service of the hotel staff was above and beyond my expectations. Our room was clean, cool, and nicely furnished. A special shout-out to Natalie who truly made our stay exceptional. We had a rough journey getting to Miami (I absentmindedly left my wallet at the airport!) and when we arrived at the hotel she made everything so easy and stressfree that our trip experience turned right around. Thank you so much for such a great stay!

I have stayed at this hotel before, but this time my brother and I stayed in the Penthouse or Roof Top Suites. Amazing experience. I love the rooms, the shower is incredible. It is one of the most modern hotels and centrally located to all of the hot attractions in SoBe!

This was my second stay in the breakwater. It was a beautiful place and pablo was such an amazing person always so helpful and everyone there was nothing but gracious. I would however say they need to do a bit of good cleaning in the bathroom but overall i have no other complaints. You are staying next to the cleavlander so expect it to be loud! Overall a great experience!

Room Tip: Stay in the main tower that the lobby is in.

My stay was over the 4th of July weekend. The overall hotel service was great. Soon as we arrive in the hotel the hotel supervisor Natalie was very kind and helpful. She provided great service alongside another staff member named Mario.I highly recommend this hotel. This hotel also provided complimentary breakfast and free wifi.The location is perfect! I will definitely stay at the Esplendor Breakwater Hotel again.

Me and a couple of my friends recently stayed at this hotel and the experience was nothing short of amazing. The hotel was extremely clean, the location was perfect, and most of all the service was great. Two staff members in particular were very helpful by the names of Mario and Natalie. From the check in to our check out Natalie was amazing and helpful, when asked questions she provided us with info that made our trip much more than what we expected. As far as the location is concerned the breakwater is perfect. Once you step out the hotel you have the beach feet away, great restaurants just as far, and last but not least great places to have a drink and get your boogie on. If you asked me if I would stay here again I wouldn't think twice, great experience!

My stay at the Breakwater hotel was excellent from start to finish. The valet was quick. The staff was amazing! I want to especially thank Ana, Natalie, Mario, and Murat. They were all so sweet and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. We stayed in the Junior Suite. It was very spacious and clean. I am very big on cleanliness and I was impressed. The complimentary breakfast was delicious, great variety of food and drinks to choose from. Anything you need is in walking distance of the hotel. There is all types of places to eat and shop all around the area and the beach is right across the street. I had an awesome stay at Breakwater I can't wait to visit again!
