We stayed at Hotel Breakwater during our short break in Miami Beach in September 2013. We had read the less than positive reviews of the hotel but we had no such problems. Yes, the area is quite loud at night but that's Miami Beach! That said with the balcony door closed I could barely hear the music outside and it certainly didn't keep me awake.
After checking in we had a bit of a relax by the pool which was really wonderful, the water was warm, the sun was hot and the loungers were comfortable. What more could we want?
The room was a good size and was clean and well equipped. The bed was particularly good, I often get a poor sleep in hotels as the beds tend to be extremely soft and often quite small but no such problems here as the bed was very big and just the right firmness.
The only slight niggle was that the sliding door on the bathroom didn't want to stay closed and even if you wedged it closed it wasn't a very effective screen against the noises going on in the bathroom. The shower though was lovely, with a big shower head fixed to the ceiling and a hand held shower head. So rarely do hotels have hand held shower heads and as such I often find I leave the shower feeling as if I haven't rinsed myself properly. Not overly pleasant.
We have no complaints about our stay and would consider staying there again next time we are in Miami Beach.
