First cruise!

This hotel is wonderful, however the $22 room fee is unfair to the guests because it is a mandatory charge regardless if you use their services or not. Also there is no onsite laundry facility.

Best trip

Everything about this hotel was excellent. The staff was very accommodating. The pool was not big but perfect to cool off and for tanning. Anything I asked for was provided. The bathroom was beautiful. Definitely going back.

Our Experience at the Esplendor Hotel

My husband wanted to experience a nice hotel on the beach front but when we arrived on Christmas Day we realised very quickly this was not the Hotel for us. Very very NOISY! After d1 night in an ok room it was impossible to sleep due to the noise and was offered ear plugs! In the morning we were moved to another room after we were going to check out. We accepted this but realistically this is not the hotel if you want to relax. Its location is great but the noise is impossible.

Little annoyances and hidden charges

We wanted to like this place-- friendly staff, good location, cool old deco style building...but there were a lot of little annoyances that kept popping up. Shower that leaked all over the bathroom, no cold water from the faucet, no waste basket in the room, TV remote didn't work, a maid that kept knocking on the door when we were trying to sleep in asking if we needed anything, but when we mentioned the issues in the room, she couldn't do anything about those! Charges that aren't up front included being charged $22 a day resort fee which according to the front desk covers the "free" breakfast and use of a beach towel. Also $100 a day charge to your credit card to cover incidentals which if you don't use does get refunded a few weeks later. The food at the restaurant was nothing special either for the price. Lots of better restaurants in South Beach.

Get away from Ocean Dr. for dinner. The hotel restaurants are a rip-off. Much better food a couple blocks away from the beach.

Great Location in the center of all the SoBe action!

Pleasantly surprised with this hotel! We got a great deal on the price, otherwise I don't think we would have afforded it, because I believe it is somewhere around 300+/night. The hotel is located right next door to the clevelander, which is great if youre looking to have access to the parties! But not so great if your room is overlooking it, like ours was. The music is blasting from 11 am until 5 am, which kinda stinks if youre trying to sleep in! But we were there to party not to relax so we dealt with it. It is 2 or 3 doors down from mangos and across the street from the beach. It is a great location!!! I would just rec to ask for your room to be away from the clevelander. The woman at check in, natalie I believe was a doll! She was full of info, super helpful and gave us great recs every day for restaurants. Anything we asked for she was able to help with. The cons of the hotel is that the there is only 1 ice machine and the hotel is split up into 2 sides and we happened to be on the opposite side of the ice machine. The pool is very small and way too hot. It felt more like a hot tub than a refreshing pool to take a dip in. Not a horrible thing, as we spent more time at the beach anyway. But we might have spent more time at the pool if the water wasn't so warm. The rooms were clean and comfy, modern and updated. I gave a 3 star for amenities, only bc there is no gym, ice machine so far away and the pool was small.

Miami Couples Retreat

We visited Miami in mid July and the hotel was great, clean, and filled with entertainment. The hotel staff was very helpful from arrival to departure. There is nothing like being greet by happy energetic people. The moment the shuttle can stopped Pablo was there to get our luggage and put it up for safe keeping as we arrived before check-in. The daytime and night life was fantastic, now I must if you are going to stay in the room and sleep this is not the spot for you. That was not us so it was very enjoyable. We are in the process of booking our trip here for the same time same place!!!!!

never stay at esplendor (no esplendor at all!)

breakwater or breakvacation ? if you don't to sleep , if you like to pay high price and get terrible service , if you like the smell of old beer and dirt carpets , and a very very strange crowd around, this your hotel. the pictures at the website are amazing but the reality is a nightmare. for sure this NOT a 5 star hotel, by any meaning. and finally they charge you a resort fee .... it's joke .... the swiming pool is a small as a jacuzzi.
