Boutique Art Deco hotel in the heart of Miami’s South Beach nightlife scene

The Lowdown

Just steps from the sand and surrounded by South Beach’s hottest nightlife, this 99-room Art Deco–era property has a modern, artistic look. Guest rooms are a minimum of 350 square feet and feature iPod dock stations, Keurig coffeemakers, plush bathrobes, flat-screen televisions, and rainfall showers. The trendy décor blends colorful patterns with futuristic furniture. For relaxation, a rooftop terrace offers shaded lounge chairs and views of the bustling scene, and the glassed-walled plunge pool offers another spot to unwind. Towels are provided to guests lounging at the beach, and there’s live music in the evening at the hotel’s seafood restaurant and bar.

In the Area

Just next door to the property is the iconic Mangos Tropical Café, a sizzling restaurant with nightly shows that feature belly dancers, conga and samba. Free bicycles are included in the resort fee, and a short ride will take you to Nikki Beach, a landmark beach club and cabana bar that’s perfect for Sunday brunch followed by lounging in the sun. Miami also has an underwater playground, so scuba divers can explore numerous coral reefs, shipwrecks and the unique — but slightly creepy — Neptune Memorial Reef (an underwater cemetery). There’s also sailing, kayaking, hang-gliding, windsurfing, and an array of other water sports. For a fabulous dinner and creative cocktails, head to the Bazaar by José Andrés for unforgettable tapas and indoor/outdoor dining.

I had a nice time. The rooms were very nice. Nice hotel view of the ocean. The food was good. I like the fact that there were two restaurants in the hotel and you can take your drinks to your room. The pool was nice as well

Last stop on tour

This was our last hotel of a 11 night rugby tour and it was a little disappointing, the pool was small, the rooms were dated and not big enough for 4 adults as we only had one bed and a pull out sofa, one good thing it's in a great location

Great hotel and location

This is my second time staying here and I'm very pleased with my stay. Lucked up on a good price and it was money well spent. Breakfast is good. Eggs, sausage, toast, waffles, French toast. Great choice for sobe. Room is nice and clean. Not really a view but that was fine with me. Just overall a very nice atmosphere

Our stay at Hotel Breakwater was absolutely amazing! We arrived late Wednesday night, the girl working the front desk that night was so nice and awesome! She let us know where everything at, what time the sun rises and set! Breakfast was amazing! They had a little of everything for everyone! Our room was amazing! We had the junior suite and it was perfect for us girls! The staff was amazing and friendly. Definitely planning a trip back and I will most definitely be staying here again!

Clean hotel in a superb location.

The location is spectacular. The staff is courteous and helpful. The hotel was clean and modern, but the building itself maintained its historic charm. Very helpful staff that kept the room spotless and refilled all of the consumables in the room everyday.
