The best part of this hotel is the location. Right across the beach and as soon as you walk outside you are swept up in the liveliness of it all. Rooms are nothing fancy. One thing to know is that there are NO DOUBLE BEDS. Breakfast is included and although it didn't change from day to day, it fit the...

You can not get any closer to where action is. This hotel is located right on Ocean Drive along with other hotels and restaurants. You step outside in the morning and is nice and quite, after 9:00 p.m. you realize you right where the action is. We stayed in their junior suite which can easily sleep up to 4 people...

I go to South Beach about six times a year and usually stay at a very highly rated (and very expensive) competitor. On a whim, I gave the Breakwater a try. It was FABULOUS!
