Our Experience at the Esplendor Hotel

Would not recommend Sat, Jan 3, 2015
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

Would not recommend Mon, Nov 24, 2014
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.

Dining

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!

Would recommend Tue, Sep 9, 2014
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

Would recommend Tue, Aug 12, 2014
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!)

Would not recommend Fri, Mar 28, 2014
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.

Not a good experience

Would not recommend Sun, Feb 9, 2014
While the room was good, getting there was nearly impossible. First of all locating the hotel, we were looking for Esplendor. No where did the name Esplendor appear, even business next door never heard of it. They go by the name Breakwater. After driving around the block three times (we have GPS) I finally found a place to park so I could walk. After finding it I had to pay $35.00 to park for a day. After arriving the initial hotel looked good but we were put in north tower which was very run down. Paid $198.00 a night which is not cheap. Electronic keys did not work well 2nd set didn't either. Had to insert 6-7 times to get elevator to work and then had to insert 6-7 time to get into the room. Had to ask for everything, towels, wash clothes, beach towels etc. naturally they wanted a tip each time. All brochures said chairs were included on beach with the $22.00 resort fee, they were not. Room was very good, but getting there was an adventure. Breakfast was also good except should include a soft drink not just coffee my wife doesn't drink coffee, soft drink cost $4.00 with $1.00 tip. Staff was ok depending who you talked to.

Dining

Specify what size drink you want. Wife doesn't usually drink but she did ask for a Pina Collata for lunch. They brought out a 40 oz. drink that cost $32.00. If my wife drank a drink that size I would have to carry her to the room. She did drink it but it had no effect on her and I don't think they had any alcohol in it.

Great stay for those who like the night life.

Would recommend Tue, Nov 26, 2013
Our stay was in the center of the activity on Ocean Drive which wS a great location to experience the Art Deco area. However, we were not prepared for the street noise late into the night and were kept awake with loud music from the Breakwater and the hotel next door until 2am each night and 4 am on Friday night. Had we known this would be the case we would not have chosen this hotel. We paid extra for an ocean view suite but could not actually see the ocean. Definitely a hotel for the young party goers and not those looking to relax in the evening. Next trip I will opt to stay in North Miami Beach.
