My first visit to South Beach was fantastic. My stay at Hotel Breakwater was absolutely amazing! The rooms and bathrooms are very clean and spacious. The breakfast was perfect especially because they offered turkey sausages as I do not eat beef or pork. :) Special thanks to Natalie and Stanley! I will definitely be back!
