We stayed the night before our cruise and were delighted to receive a complimentary upgrade to a penthouse suit, which was beautiful. Natalie behind the front desk was super friendly and Pablo was quite friendly as well and very helpful with our luggage. We had a great dinner downstairs in the restaurant called iPaparazzi. Don't forget, guests receive a 20%...

I came to the Breakwater for my anniversary last weekend and had a really lovely experience. For a South Beach hotel on Ocean, it wasn't exorbitantly expensive (we also found a deal online) and it was a great area for restaurants, beach, and bars. They offer bikes that you can sign out for free, so I definitely recommend riding out...

Stayed in the penthouse and I was more than happy with the room. It was large and I loved the added bonus of the private rooftop hot tub. And even though it is near a club I didn't hear excessive noise in the room. And the cost was very affordable and the location was great!

This hotel is in the heart of South Beach, and is a very busy hub of activity. Our room was literally hanging over Ocean Drive (see photos) and was really part of the "scene".

We had a wonderful time at the Esplendor. My only concern was that the room was a little small as was the pool. But in the grand sheme of things, it really didn't matter as the rooftop lounge is lovely with a beautiful view of Ocean Drive and the Atlantc Ocean. The beach is just steps away across Ocean Drive....
