Great place to stay and enjoy South Beach - number of bars / restaurants close by. Beach towel and bicycles are a huge plus. Friendly staff. Basic but very tasty breakfast. The only cons its lack of parking space but this is the case for almost all hotels located on the Ocean Dr.

The hotel Breakwater is just fine, on Ocean Drive you take the noise with the noise and the vibes with the vibes, good fun. Crazy route to our room which was in the adjoining buidling through the outside cafe, left through the ice-cream shop and then there's a lift hidden in the corner, unique is the word! The corridor carpets...

Arrived at the hotel, paid for a balcony room. Got one overlooking an alley. Had to stick paper in the closet door so it would stay closed. I get that the hotel is old and Art Deco, but come on. Then get changed to another room with a balcony with an Ocean View. However balcony is undergoing renovations. So it...

The Breakwater Hotel is perfectly located if you want party all day and night long. This is the most noisy Hotel ever. Perfect if you go to bed at 6 in the morning. Don't expect any sleep before the early morning. Can't recommend the Breakwater Hotel.

Location is versy good. Bad clening of the room and the front desk staff are not frendly. They try to make you over pay. We did pay for a night advance but when we did check out the charge us for the first night one more time. The pool was much smaller then the pictures did show.

I was here on business and found this hotel is ONLY for the party crowd. Music from rooftop bar went on until 4:30AM and got louder the later the evening went on. I heard every word to every song and the DJ singing and talking also. The hotel is a bit rundown, again if you're partying all night and just...
