Action and Entertainment

Posted 12-Nov-2014
Pros: This hotel is right on the beach in the heart of it all. It was very convenient. The hotel staff was very nice an accomodating.
Cons: The water was an issue. At times, the water pressure was low and there was no hot water.
Location: Perfect location and walking distance of most things on South Beach.
When I first arrived and received my room key my room door was open and the bed wasn't made. It appears that they were doing some installation of cable. For this mix up, the hotel staff/managment apologized and upgrade me to a better room. This made up for everything. Hands down, I totally enjoyed my ocean front room. This room gives you the ability to watch all the action going on on Ocean drive, the beach as well as the entertainment that goes on from around 11 am - 5 am. You will hear the music and live band/singer most of the day. This did not bother me at all but if you are looking to hear crickets most of the day/night its not going to happen at this party hotel. The bed is very comfortable. Without a doubt, I would stay in room 217 again.

Excellent hotel in the heart of SOBE!

Posted 1-Nov-2014
Pros: The attentive service, location and hospitality.
Cons: Not too much!
Location: Right in the middle of the SOBE nightlife and tourist strip. The beach is across the street. You can walk on promenade. Nice restaurants too!
Enjoyed this hotel immensely. My wife and I decided on SOBE for our 12th wedding anniversary: we wanted some glitz, nightlife and the beach. SOBE has all of these and the Breakwater Hotel was a great place to stay to experience all it has to offer. The location is excellent: right next to Oceans 10 and one half block from the Clevelander and the beach. Natalie, Marisol and Robert (and other staff) provided excellent service and were very attentive to our needs. If you are looking to enjoy SOBE this a fine place to stay!

Nice hotel, great location, very friendly staff.

In the center of the crowd, awesome staff especially Natalie, David and Robert. If u r a light sleeper, reserve a room at PH level with balcony, you won't hear the loud music. Natelie checked us in 4 hrs earlier, Thx a lot Natalie for the bottle of wine in my wife's b.day. Walking distance to the beach. Breakfast can be improved a notch and add fruit to it.

Really Nice Hotel

Posted 7-Oct-2014
Pros: I enjoyed all the amenities being close. As well as the bed very comfy and shower head was cool and double sink .
Cons: More towels at the pool ! lol
Location: BEACH across the street. Clevelander next door.
Everything was good except I don't know why but on sunday the breakfast was supposed to be until 11:30am and at 11:10am it was gone but the manager did give us the option to a complimentary bkfast off of the menu. But overall highly recommend the hotel. Complimentary bikes free internet downstairs with newspaper. RIGHT ON OCEAN DRIVE

A weekend getaway

Posted 22-Sep-2014
My girlfriend and I plans for Miami changed almost let minute ,so we decided to go to South beach. I chose the Esplendor Hotel Breakwater after reading some reviews. Well to my surprise the hotel was great The staff starting with Natalie was fantastic and helpful .We did have some minor issues with a sink and the door ,maintenance was on it within minutes with no inconvenience to us. Food was great ,room was clean. Pool was fun . The hotel seems like the place to be great entertainment . Again fun. We stayed Courtyard so it is loud, we however loved it and when we did go to bed we had no problem at all sleeping . Thank You NATALIE and staff you made our stay great , we will see you again in the winter

Love the hotel. Awesome location. Bad location.

Posted 19-Sep-2014
Pros: The service and room was awesome.
Cons: Move the hotel about a mile away from the noise.
Location: Do not party on Ocean Drive. They rip you off. Naked Taco-2 blocks up and one block inland was awesome and way cheaper.
I just got back from a cruise. I wanted to relax and rest and sleep. I got 5 hours of sleep over 2 days. South Beach is LOUD. The hotel was great but the noise, i.e. techno, was blaring until 4am. I cannot go back there.

Sleepless nights

Posted 2-Sep-2014
Nice hotel pleasant staff. Directly in the middle of all the clubs. Don't expect the loud music to stop until approximately 4:30 AM. They tell you 15 minutes ahead for valet service. Our's was one hour five minutes.
