Time Out Says

3 out of 5 stars

An Art Deco classic in the heart of Ocean Drive

This Art Deco beauty is one of the most well-known boutique properties in the area. You’d recognize that grand, nautical-inspired spire anywhere. If it seems like the ocean-facing hotel is about to sail, well, that’s the point. Though stylistically in the past, the Breakwater’s amenities and various restaurants and lounges position it rightfully in the present. Don’t miss the aquarium-style plunge pool and scenic rooftop. 

Neighborhood: This is the South Beach you see in postcards. Brace yourself for Ocean Drive mayhem: traffic, bizarre characters and colorful cocktails. The good news: you couldn't be closer to the beach. 

Employees Only: Quite possibly the best place for a delicious nightcap in Miami Beach
The Wolfsonian: Multi-storey museum dedicated to the impact of design
Lummus Park: Rent bikes and peddle through this pretty beachside park

Time Out tip: Beware of the restaurants along Ocean Drive. If they've got a pushy hostess and cocktails the size of your head, stay away. The quality will no doubt leave you disappointed.
