I surprised my wife for her 29th birthday with a weekend in South Beach. After a lot of research I decided that I wanted to be in the middle of the party on Ocean Drive between 9th and 10th to get a perfect feel of what this beach is all about! When you stay around this location a car is not needed, you are within walking distance of shopping centers, clubs, restaurants, beach, etc.
As for the Breakwater goes…It was between very good and Excellent. You have to consider the fact that this is not a resort, it doesn’t try to be one either. Customer service is GREAT. The team took care of us and we felt that if we had any issues they would be more than willing to fix them. Everything looked clean and fresh.
Some fees to consider:
$35 all day Valet Parking (24 hour period) get you car as many times as you want!
$18 resort fee: Includes the following - towels for the beach and beach chair (no umbrella), unlimited phone calls from room, international too!, bicycle rentals (2 Hours max. per rental), internet in the lobby, pool, gym and spa.
Continental breakfast was included in our Double Superior room.
