Hotel Breakwater South Beach
Terrible. At check in they couldn’t find my reservation, took an hour at 1am. Finally they let me check in, I go up to my room and keys didn’t work; went up & down 3 times and still got wrong keys. They gave me another room, it was again the wrong room, i paid for a king size bed and balcony and got full size bed and I balcony. I was so tired that I just went to sleep. Complaint the next day and they said I actually got an “upgrade” because I was one floor up hahaa. I went from 2nd floor to 3rd floor lol. And they said I was ocean front. Well the ocean is half a mile from the hotel. I got street front, super loud and crazy. I complaint again and they just didn’t care. Do not stay here. Ohhh and the Pool is GROSSSSSSS super dirty

Heart of South Beach
The hotel was in very good condition. The guess service was amazing. They went out of their way to answer questions or resolve any concerns. Their hotel is in the heart of South Beach. You can walk out door to the beach across the street. Night life along the street, & shopping one block away on Collins Avenue.

Overall the hotel was just ok. The location is what you are paying top dollar for. We were able to check in at 2pm but they gave us the wrong room. I called down to the front desk and inquired about the mix-up and the woman at the front desk was rude as if I did something wrong. We drug our four suitcases back down to the lobby and was told our room wouldn't be ready until 4. We came back at 4 to the rude attendant and she rolled her eyes at me and told me i'd have to wait another hour. At that time I asked to speak to the manager and he promised me that I could have a late check out on Sunday at 2pm since I was having to wait so long. Of course, Sunday morning came and the manager that was working had no idea what I was talking about. in so many words.... bad customer service! Our suite was hidden in the back of the hotel and we had to go through a bar and an ice cream shop just to get to the elevator. Literally an ice cream shop to the hidden elevator. All in all... horrible customer service! The attendant at the desk had the nerve to ask me if we took anything from the first room they gave us! Never again will we stay at the Breakwater! nOT TO MENTION THE DISGUSTING POOL ACCOMMODATIONS!

I was very disappointed at the hotel service, everyone had an attitude at the front desk and acted like they didnt want to help or they had something better to do instead of speaking with you. Dirty sheets in my room, pool was very dirty with trash in the pool. I understand the hotel being right on the beach the workers have so much to do but for almost $20 drink and almost $300 a night this was over all a bad representative of what Miami beach has to offer.

Unacceptable- couldn’t sleep!
Extremely loud music kept us up til three AM! Live band ten feet away outside the window. Ear plugs did not help. No other rooms available so we suffered. Unacceptable
