if you enjoy the essence of south beach then this is the hotel for you. Nothing like waking up like your on a cruise ship with great music from the live band and DJs in the courtyard. Staff was great and helpful. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed my stay at the Hotel Breakwater. The room was large and very well done and the staff was extremely courteous and accommodating. The location was great-right across from the beach and walking distance to shopping, restaurants and nightlife. Never ending water bottles and complimentary breakfast buffet were also included. I would definitely stay there...

We had a room facing the back of the hotel next to a huge fan and was very noisy and ongoing. Breakfast was good enough!

The evening when we wanted to take up the offer, the girl...

I stayed at the Hotel Breakwater with my mother this month on a trip to Miami Beach. First off, the location is perfect. Right on ocean drive, in the middle of the party area.

Nice hotel, very modern but the staff is a bit aggressive. They push sales at their restaurant although theres an entire strip of other places to eat.The hallways are a bit dark, and a 4pm check-in time ia far too late.
