Hotel Breakwater South Beach
Ranked #112 of 212 Hotels in Miami Beach
Reviewed 25 October 2011

The hotel was located in a perfect location right in front of the beach in between the best night clubs (mangos, oceans, and the Clevelander) just to name a few!
Driving wasn't necessary and walking was a pleasure from the hotel. Our room had a fabulous view of the ocean and Ocean dr, and oceans 11 with live music every night. We also had a window sofa where we could read and watch TV from...very nice! The room was clean, very well attended and really comfortable.
Special thanks to Serge for the outstanding service from her and the rest of the staff.
A very positive experience!
We will definitely stay here again...

Room Tip: Beach front room corner suite made the trip more enjoyable

We wanted a getaway and found your hotel. "Breakwater". The location is fine. Moving aroundfrom that location is pretty easy. The rooms are simple but breathe taking. I really appreciated the few "Housekeeping" staff that I came in contact with. Please keep doing a good job of keeping the rooms and hotel that clean. We will be back.

My wife and I frequently visit South Beach for both pleasure and business throughout the year. We have stayed at the W-Hotel, the Delano, the Hilton and many more. We are very picky when it comes to hotels and resorts. I were surfing the internet and noticed the brand new Breakwater and cautiously gave it a try. And I must say, I fell in love with the hotel, the staff and the service.
I stayed at the Breakwater for a business trip in early September and it was absolutely awesome! My room was clean, new and modern! I was upgraded to a corner room facing Ocean Drive in the adjacent building and it was lively and had a wonderful vibe! I’m hooked and we will be staying at the Breakwater again on next week. And we’re bringing some friends along with us this time to experience the Breakwater and all of it’s surroundings. In hopes of experiencing the same level of excitement, we requested the same type of room category! We’re keeping our fingers crossed!

Me and some friends came to South Beach for just for a couple days and we have to say we were very impressed with the hotel. It is true the pool is not open but you can literally see the beach upon check -in, so who cares about a pool? its south BEACH! We were checked in by Amanda and Amanda which i thought was a cute gimic. Both girls were very nice and made our check in so much fun. The girls made sure our rooms were near eachother and both my room and my friends room was upgraded to an ocean front in the 2nd building. Although the 2nd building can feel like you are the loop but it was perfect for us. Our building lead right out to the clevlenader hotel which is a big hot spot and we never had to pass the front desk always doing the awkward 3am stroll through the lobby after a long night of partying!!!

The only bad thing is that it is a pretty loud area. The hotel is located inbetween loud and louder so it can be bad for some people but I've been to South Beach before, I know how it goes so I wasnt bothered by it much.

The hotel is beautiful. It is brand new and the stafff is extrememly friendly. Im sure once their pool is finally open and their resturant is open this will be an even more amazing hotel. So the best of luck to them!

We will be returning for sure.

My husband and I visit Miami 2 to 3 times year. This was by far the worst experience we have ever had. One week before our visit, we were notified that their renovations were bot complete which meant no room service, restaurant or pool. When checked in, we were told that our room got upgraded.... I wouldn't call it an upgrade. We were in a separate building that in order to get to, we had to walk through a dark alley that was not clean or safe. There was no security or concierge in our building. To top it off, the staff was extremely rude and unprofessional. I am still waiting to hear back from the manager. I have never been so disappointed than I am after this trip. This is the first time I am writing a negative review.
