                          Rooms were modern and clean. The shower floor looked dirty. Shower shoes suggested. Maid waked in room without knocking.

                          Good location. Next door to Fat Tuesday two blocks from sugar factory. Across the street from beach.

                          Hotel has two different sides. One side requires you to walk through outdoor restaurant and through an ice cream parlor. Elevator did not work at first.

                          The location was perfect,rooms were clean and modern.over all a nice hotel, the staff are very eager to help ,very accomodating.

                          Just some technical issues, the second day the air conditioning broke , however it was repaired in a couple of hours, just one of those things,can't really blame anyone, the telephone didn't work the last two days of our stay,no big deal until I had to call the front desk, had to go down and walk over to main building, minor inconvenience.

                          Can't get any better than this location on Ocean drive.. It's perfect!! A walk from everywhere .. The hotel was extremely beautiful and staff was very friendly and desired to go above and beyond your needs.

                          I was upgraded to the beach view, and I must say you can hear the music all night, so hopefully your not going to mind that.. It's south beach on the strip.. What can you expect.. Anyway if your thinking of staying here.. You can't go wrong..

                          I liked the room and location, but the noise from the bar outside our window ruined it all, no sleep until four am!!!!!!

                          The noise from next door bar, music very, very loud until four am!!!!! No sleep!!!!!!!!

                          It was very spacious and comfortable...awesome location

                          The house keeping was horrible. You never get the front desk when you call. And as expensive as it is, they need to offer breakfast

                          This hotel had only been open 4 days when we checked in and the staff were extremely attentive. They recommended a few nice places to meet and were happy to help with any questions we had. Jamie and Trisha were particularly great. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a nice clean hotel in the thick of South Beach.

                          The restaurant/bar next door plays loud music till quite late and can be heard from some of the hotel rooms.

                          My experience at the breakwater hotel was wonderful, to always remember. We has some issues that were solve immediately. The staff was really friendly and professional. The management was excellent and helpful.

                          Be more specific in description on rooms regarding number of beds available, and difference between single and double occupancy.

                          Very cool and recently renovated art deco hotel in South Beach, Miami.

                          The hotel boasted an indoor swimming pool and also a rooftop lounge, but neither was open yet. This was very misleading and I feel that Booked.net should have supplied this information.

                          We were not told at the time of booking that the pool was closed for renovations - also - the rooftop bar was closed for a private party so we could not enjoy that either Courtyard view was right above a bar which could prove very noisy at night

                          The hotel is fantastic great location & we were lucky enough to be upgraded to a penthouse suite which was out of this world we lived it.

                          Nothing at all

                          The ocean view room furniture is modern, spacious and new.

                          Never cleaned the room although I called them every-time we leave the room, and when they did sometimes they forget to put towels, never cleaned the coffee glasses or even mob the bathroom floor! There was a very noisy club next street the music didn't let is sleep and they close at 2:30am and 3:30am during weekends, my baby everytimewakes up.

                          The hotel was ideally located right on the beach and the restaurants and night life of Ocean Drive. A great place to stay if you have a few nights to stay in Miami. The staff were extremely helpful.

                          Construction work is ongoing and the pool was out of use during my stay. Also the gym was part of my criteria but the advertised 'state of the art' leisure suite was a room with a couple of cardio machines.
