Overview

Unique touches — like free breakfast, complimentary use of bikes and iPads, and a glass-encased aquarium-style rooftop pool — set the Esplendor Hotel Breakwater South Beach apart from other outposts in the lively Miami Beach area. (While these particular amenities are a hit, there is a daily resort fee of $22 per room.) This property's location right along Ocean Drive and across from the Art Deco District also earns a nod of approval from recent visitors. The Esplendor Hotel Breakwater's 99 rooms and suites are equipped with 42-inch flat-screen TVs, minibars, iPod docking stations and complimentary Wi-Fi. What's more, private beach access and a picturesque rooftop lounge offer hotel guests a way to relax amid the bubbly South Beach atmosphere. As for food, you'll find two on-site restaurants (Ocean's Ten and II Paparazzi) though the property's convenient location on Ocean Drive puts it near many of Miami Beach's hottest eateries.
