“Amazing Hotel for an Amazing Trip.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

Me and a couple of my friends recently stayed at this hotel and the experience was nothing short of amazing. The hotel was extremely clean, the location was perfect, and most of all the service was great. Two staff members in particular were very helpful by the names of Mario and Natalie. From the check in to our check out Natalie was amazing and helpful, when asked questions she provided us with info that made our trip much more than what we expected. As far as the location is concerned the breakwater is perfect. Once you step out the hotel you have the beach feet away, great restaurants just as far, and last but not least great places to have a drink and get your boogie on. If you asked me if I would stay here again I wouldn't think twice, great experience!

My stay at the Breakwater hotel was excellent from start to finish. The valet was quick. The staff was amazing! I want to especially thank Ana, Natalie, Mario, and Murat. They were all so sweet and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. We stayed in the Junior Suite. It was very spacious and clean. I am very big on cleanliness and I was impressed. The complimentary breakfast was delicious, great variety of food and drinks to choose from. Anything you need is in walking distance of the hotel. There is all types of places to eat and shop all around the area and the beach is right across the street. I had an awesome stay at Breakwater I can't wait to visit again!

This is our 2nd summer in a row staying there, and now I can't imagine staying anywhere else! The entire staff is helpful, and pleasant. When we informed them that we were going to spend the morning on the beach, they provided us with towels, water bottles and apples! We highly recommend the Esplendor Hotel Breakwater!

This hotel was amazing! The staff was friendly and very helpful. The complimentary breakfast was great and while you eat you can sit outside and enjoy Miami strolling by. Everything is within walking distance. It's just a great location and the night life was everything I'd hoped it would be. I can't wait to come back!

Great location in South Beach. My room was away from the courtyard, which was noisy due to the world cup. Natale and Mario took very good care of my family. Nice rooms, etc. I did not give 5 stars due to plumbing issues in the room (low pressure for toilet and shower slow to drain). The personal service was outstanding, as Natale was able to virtually predict what I needed before I asked. She booked our tours, ensured we had adjoining rooms, water and towels for the beach. Mario was also outstanding!
