I stayed a night at this hotel on Valentine's and they gave me a room overlooking the pool and the Restaurant/Live Theatre/Nightclub. The room was nice but the noise levels were extreme. The music level was high until 4 am. You can feel the bass. Couldn't sleep well there. The location was great and service was excellent. Breakfast was good....

This hotel was all good during my stay! There was a nice, but shallow pool overlooking south beach. The location is ideal and in the best place to be in miami. The rooms are very nice and the bathrooms are AMAZING and have the best glass shower you have EVER seen! Many people say that the Cleavlender hotel next door...

Yes, it's noisy at night but this is south beach, so that is expected. The rooms are actually very nice with good lighting and lots of outlets to plug in the many electronic devices. The shower water pressure is awful (seems like a south beach common problem) and it took a LONG time for the hot water to arrive. The...

Breakwater is a sleezy lemon. The location is great because it's across the street from the beach but that is it. Upon our arrival at 1 am Saturday we were tired and eager to get to our room. The receptionist strongly persuaded us to upgrade to a much more expensive room for $180 + tax so it would be quiet....

Dear Emily L, Thank you for taking the time in sharing your experience of your recent visit to South Beach with us.

This hotel was great. We read some of the reviews about noise and things like that and were concerned. I think those reviews were written by older people who HAVE NO IDEA what south beach is. Music turns off at 4am. You should be stumbling back to your clean room by then and fall asleep drunk. If you are not,...

Do not stay here if you want to sleep at all! The windows in the room were shaking from the bass, for this price stay elsewhere!! Even with earplugs you still feel the thumping as the floor vibrates from below. Oh, and there were also ants in the bathroom. Stay away unless on college springs break fraternity trip.
