Ok, so there's music, there are restaurants and there's definitely a vibrant nightlife and if you have done you homework this should be obvious. I don't quite get it that some folks complain about noise. Never noticed it but that might be the awesome G & T's they knock out at Oceans 10, one of the two bars that service the Breakwater. This hotel is rather delightful and rather a cut above many on South Beach, facilities are excellent though I did not reap the benefits of the resort fee - well other than WI FI - which many enjoy to the full, and that's my problem because 20 mins sunshine on the beach would lobsterise me to the point I would end up on the menu at Joe's Crab Shack. So I avoid the beach. Plenty of other things to do and so didn't need the beach stuff. Staff at hotel really helpful and you usually get a lovely warm welcome when returning from a hard day of doing as little as possible for as long as possible. Check out the Clevelander for a great happy hour between 5 and 7, back for a sleep and scrub up then the choice of places to eat is exceptional, with prices to suite all pockets. Now I liked The Betsy and Smith and Wollensky but then I do like my meat! Not good for veggies though I did not check out what they had on offer for them. Don't mind veggies but I can't manage a whole one. Anyway back to the Breakwater. Stayed in 305 looking inwards to the small courtyard and this was sheltered from the clubs - unless the G & T's had something to do with it. Room lovely and big with gorgeous bathroom, a safe that worked, plenty of storage and the most comfortable bed. I should really give this place a rubbish review so I can keep it all to myself! I will be back. Now who said that?
