Not sure what to write about this hotel, it wasn't the worst hotel i have ever stayed in but definitely not the best. We arrived at 8pm which was not ideal because it was a Saturday night and OMG the area was pumping and getting any sleep that night would have been hard which is what we wanted to do...

My friends and I had a great stay at the Breakwater. The staff could not be any nicer. Especially Natalie at the check in desk. She always made sure we had everything we needed. The up grade to the PH suite was a nice treat. The rooms were clean. The pool was great. And the outside lounges by the PH...

Fun hotel located in the heart of South Beach! What makes this hotel truly amazing is the staff, specifically Natalie at the front desk and Juan Vargas (customer experience manager). First, Juan knows every great dining establishment in the area and is spot on with his recommendations. I truly suggest you ask him where to go; you will not be...

This boutique hotel is adequate for short stays in South Beach. The beautiful Miami beach is a short walk across the street from the hotel. It tends to be noisy throughout most of the night as the clubs (attached to the hotel and next door) are in competition to see who can blast music the loudest and longest. This was...

This is an excellent hotel next to various bars and clubs (request quite side if you want to sleep). It is also directly across the street from the beach. The staff is great especially Natalie, Juan, and Pablo. The staff will take good care of you and remember who you are, which makes the overall experience better.

Could not get in a decent night's sleep during a three night stay due to the noise from the outdoor bar. The hotel itself is operated as an afterthought to the bar and restaurant.
