Nice room & bathroom, comfy bed. Noisy till early morning and poor restaurant food which I was supposed to get a discount for but didn't. 1 night would be enough unless you party where the noise is, and the hotel is right there

Stayed there for only one day. Super service and nice and clean room. We will definitely come again. Spot on at the best area of Miami. though, If you are looking for a quiet hotel this is not the right place.

We booked a four night stay but checked out after one night as there was constant outside noise from adjacent bars until around 4 in the morning which is ok if you like late nights but not if you don't (especially after travel)! Breakfast was also very limited. One positive is that when we complained about the noise the manager...

Stayed here overnight which was probably enough for us. Room clean, had to ask for bedding for sofa bed despite booking for 4 of us. Lots of outside noise but we had been warned, we slept well considering. Son and husband loved car watching, lots of very nice cars. Muscle beach just opposite if you've got the muscles for it....

Have to accept that we had probably not done enough research before booking this iconic hotel. If you are wanting to party late into the night then this is the ideal hotel & location for you. Having arrived after a long haul flight, we asked for a quiet room but they simply don't exist at the Breakwater. Staff were excellent...

South beach is fantastic, walking the strip is very interesting, if you stay on ocean blvd be prepared for loud music till early hours of the morning, that was the bad part of staying on the strip, hotel and personal are great and they go out of their way to help. Nice trip
