My boyfriend and I arrived on Thursday and left Sunday. We arrived at about 11AM and it said checkin was at 4PM, therefore I was not expecting to get a room before 4PM however we... More

I honestly thought after checking out and seeing some of the other reviews, that we had stayed in the wrong hotel! Certainly wasn't anything more than basic on every level. Pros - free wifi, decent bed, close to the beach and bars nearby, free (although you stung with a hefty service charge) bike hire to explore the area Cons -... More

Very updated an stylish hotel in party area. Our room was very spacious for a boutique hotel. The room had a nice bathroom and a big bed. Our room was also a corner room in the back and had a lot of light. Breakfast was barely decent, not one single piece of fruit or vegetable! (Even though they promoted a... More

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

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
