We went for a couple's getaway and we booked a room at the Breakwater through a travel website. This hotel is in a renovation phase and is located on a prime spot on Ocean Drive. The pool is not yet ready, which is a big reason why rates are so affordable at the present time. The customer service is FANTASTIC. Ivan and Jaime have been wonderful and the Concierge is always available. The rooms are clean and the decors is a modern version of a classic style (many throwbacks in terms of photos and furniture). It is located directly across from the beach and all of the chairs/towels are included (open until 930a-5p) but umbrellas are $12.50 per day. There is a fitness area but I never got around to trying it. No restaurant in the hotel, but there are so many right outside the front door. Rooms do not have tubs, just showers...unless you get one of the select penthouse rooms. There is a penthouse suite with roof access to hot tub and the rooftop bar that is nearing completion. Overall, we would stay here again and recommend it to friends.

Room Tip: Contact hotel directly instead of using 3rd party website. Ask for penthouse rooms and act before the pool renovation is done!

Breakwater JUST reopened (June 2011) and while the rooms are neat, modern and well-appointed, the hotel overall was not so great. I think they should have waited until everything was ready before opening. As of July 2011, the spa, pool, room service, business center, internet cafe were not open. This was a huge disappointment.

I will say that the staff was great and did everything they could to improve our stay. The hotel is in a great location, IF you want to party on Ocean Drive all night. Our room was right on the street and (not being huge party people) we heard music all. night. long. No sleep for us.

I think Breakwater has potential, but i would wait a few months for everything to open before staying there.

Room Tip: Room #331 looks right onto Ocean Ave.

Dear crawfishes,

Thank you very much for choosing Hotel Breakwater. I am very pleased to hear that our staff has gone above and beyond of making your stay special. I am happy to inform you that our room service is already operated by our current hotel restaurant, the second dining outlet and of course our unique infinity pool is expected to be completed soon. This information is communicated on our website along with an opening special that compensates for the missing pool. We look forward to once again welcoming you back very soon for a splash in our new spa pool. Once again, thank you for choosing Hotel Breakwater.

Let me just start by saying if you want real sobe experience stay at the breakwater. If you want to being boring the holiday inn is down the street! Beautiful rooms, excellent customer service. The rooftop is gorgeous!! The private patio of the penthouse makes for a perfect sobe experience. Right in the middle of alll the action, miami never sleeps so this hotel is perfect!!! Can't wait to come back!
