“One night stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

Nice hotel with very helpful and friendly staff (Mario and Natalie)! In spite of outdoor clubbing at night, we did not hear a lot of the party "noises". If we will visit Miami Beach again, we will definitely consider booking the Breakwater Hotel again!

In the heart of Deco District right on South Beach. Venue is nice, room are good price quality ratio and they also have choice of quieter rooms so u don't have to listen to the parties till 5am. Wish they offered king size beds rather than queen.
Staff service is ok and if they improved the overall level that would be better. Reception very friendly and a bit confused on room costs charges etc.
Not my recommended location for Miami after being coming for several years.
Ciao

We stopped by the breakwater hotel after out can took us to south beach , we wanted to just come to the beach but we had all of our luggage and bags with us, the hotels bell boys and manager assisted us in out requests even though we weren't guest and had no intention of staying . They then stored our luggage for a small
Fee of $5 , and helped us in touring south beach. It was a lot to ask for even though we weren't guests , but they helped anyway. They even arranged a car service to transport is to Ft lauderdale to catch our flight. I know for a fact the next time we're in Miami we're staying here

My sister, best friend and I needed a place to store our luggage until our flight and the staff was so nice. It was $5 a bag but Mario even went and booked our transportation to get to the airport just out of courtesy. The hotel itself was in a great location. Next to everything you would want to go to. When I go back to Miami I'm def staying there.

We had a very nice week at the break water hotel.
Of course its a little bit noisy, but its well located, in the heart of Ocean drive.
Employees here are very nice and friendly (Nathalie, Pablo, Sadrac and the rest of the team are always there when you need)! So really appreciate it
The menu of the restaurant should be improve, it was better two years ago...

Room Tip: Rooms in the front of the hotel are too noisy, much better taking a room in the back with no view.

It was wonderful having you here visiting with us! We are happy you enjoyed being here with us in the center of Ocean Drive (we know it can be a bit noisy, but is the heart of South Beach!). To address the noise from all the surrounding entertainment and action, we will be modifying our windows this year to help minimize the noise for our guest's comfort. Natalie, Pablo, Sadrac and the Team look forward to having you visit with us again soon!

This hotel was perfect. Starr was excellent, location was prime time and the aura was much needed. Definitely recommend this hotel to any and everyone. Pablo who works for the hotel helped us with our bags and taxis as if it was his livelihood. Much respect
