Hotel Breakwater is the worst place you can spend your holidays in Miami. Not only because the installations has nothing to do with the ambiance you get through the pictures on the site. It is also very very noisy and uncomfortable. The pool is small and rather too hot for Miami temperatures. The service is way ling the worst we... More

This is an excellent location in the heart of south beach. Great atmosphere and good night life. The staff are polite and responsive. The rooms are clean and the breakfast buffet is worth the money. We stayed here twice and enjoyed it! :)

My daughter and I stay at this hotel at least twice a year. It's always clean, the staff is friendly and it's in the center of everything in South Beach. The pool is very relaxing and the breakfast buffet is a great way to start the day. The beach is across the street and there are complementary chairs. Lincoln Road... More

My boyfriend and I enjoyed are stay. The location is amazing and if you are looking to party this is the hotel because you are surrounded by bars with great drinks and loud music.

The rooms were extremely spacious and clean. The king bed was huge. Bathroom was huge. Entrance was odd through an elevator in an ice cream parlor. We didn't mind and caved in and bought a few scoops our last night :) The breakfast is free and the same everyday. Breakfast potatoes, scrambled eggs, waffles and sausage. That is it food... More
