The Confidante

Miami Beach, Miami

The hotel

Enjoy one of the world’s most exciting destinations in a hotel voted one of the best in town — The Confidante Miami Beach! Bursting at the seams with Art Deco glamour, it combines bohemian beach chic with the very best in comfort. Stylish, retro guest rooms, designed by Martin Brudnizki, boast city or sparkling ocean views plus there’s a whole range of top-notch amenities to indulge in. The hotel enjoys its very own beach area along with food and beverage service. Alternatively relax by the poolside instead, not only have you got two to choose from but there’s live music to get that tropical vibe going! And for moments when you want to simply de-stress, we recommend a trip to the open-air rooftop spa and salon for a revitalising body massage or detoxifying body wrap. When it comes to eats, Miami has so many restaurants to choose from but you’ll be hard pressed to beat what’s on your doorstep! The Confidante’s restaurants and bars deliver quality dining experiences in unique settings. Bird & Bone is a Southern-inspired restaurant led by celebrated South Florida chef Richard Hales with a popular Sunday brunch. Cafecito Bar serves coffee drinks from local favorites Café Bustelo and Panther Coffee, along with international grab and go food items like guava & cheese pastelitos, yogurt & berry parfaits and gluten-free blueberry muffins. The Backyard menu of casual cuisine and specialty cocktails is available in the gardens, poolside or on the beach.

I've been the first time at the Confidante Miami Beach and it was a great stay there. All the staff members are super friendly and try to help you out with everything. Especially one of the bartenders at the pool area was super professional and nice, his name is Devontae. We needed to wait for a meal a little longer because it was so crowded but he have been taking care for our order and acted as professional as possible.... thumbs up!!!! A warm and welcoming service from him and not just polite. A big thank you! This is what you expect from a service orientated Service Professional. And after waiting was over :-) the food have been great too. I'm traveling a lot and i always like to feel comfortable and treated as a guest.... it's at all departments in that hotel. I'm looking forward to visit the Confidante soon again. Read less

I stayed with my 10 year old son for 4 nights midweek and booked through a 3rd with a party site. I paid a good rate for my room and I’m fine with the $20 resort fee (it’s less than most) but the resort fee does NOT cover umbrellas at the beach. They tack on another $22 for that.

I stayed with my 10 year old son for 4 nights midweek and booked through a 3rd with a party site. I paid a good rate for my room and I’m fine with the $20 resort fee (it’s less than most) but the resort fee does NOT cover umbrellas at the beach. They tack on another $22 for that. The pool area is tight and we had trouble finding a seat in the family area early Friday afternoon on our last day. The (pay for) cabanas sat empty every day I was there and I saw several families having trouble finding pool chairs. Pros -Great section of Miami Beach and less crowded and chaotic compared to South Beach but close. -Beach is amazing. Nice sand, beautiful water -Room was small but totally acceptable for the rate I paid. -kids breakfast buffet was only 12 dollars. -I liked crossing the beautiful Boardwalk from the hotel to the beach. Cons: -The handset for the phone in my room was broken and had to use speaker phone. Not a big deal but this is supposed to be “4.5” star hotel -I called “O” for my car numerous times and on at least 3 occasions no one answered. After about 20 rings it just hangs up. The second try always worked. -Service was spotty and slow at the pool. No one seemed to want to go out of their way for you. Overall, we had a great vacation and for the rate we paid I would consider staying again! Read less

I am currently here at the Confidante with my 11 year old daughter and we could not be happier with our choice of hotel in Miami Beach. We spent a lot of time researching options and decided on the Confidante after reading all the amazing reviews. We arrived late after flight delays in Boston to find we had been upgraded to a ocean view with a balcony king room along with some special treats in our room. From there everything else has followed suit - from the food at breakfast to the most incredible day at the beach - all of the service has been top notch! The grounds are beautiful, the lobby has the most incredible coconut tropical smell, the Jonathan Adler products, the coffee bar in the lobby, the pool and beach staff....all of it combines to make this choice of hotel one of the best decisions we have made in a long time! We will absolutely be back with friends and family. Read less

The pre-check-in service is very poor. I called one month ago try to link two reservations under different names (Me and my husband's) together so we don't have to check out and check back in. I also specifically request to change the room from two queens to one king since we request a crib in room so no need 2 beds anymore. The frontdesk I talked… Read more
The pre-check-in service is very poor. I called one month ago try to link two reservations under different names (Me and my husband's) together so we don't have to check out and check back in. I also specifically request to change the room from two queens to one king since we request a crib in room so no need 2 beds anymore. The frontdesk I talked to promised me that the reservations were linked together and the room had been changed to one king. However, upon the check in day, the front desk told us the reservation weren't linked so we had to check out and check back in for the other reservation. When we got into the room, we realized it was still a two queens bed room. I called frontdesk immediately and was told that the kings were fully booked during our stay and there was no way to change my reservation anymore. The room facility was horrible. The plugs at the bed were not working. One of the bed light was not working. The overall room experience was very bad. The good part was, most staff were quite nice. We had a good time at the pool and restaurant. Overall, as a Hyatt member, I wouldn't recommend this hotel to others. Read less

As always wonderful. The hotel was busy but that didn’t mean the staff weren’t up to the job. Great service poolside. Shoutout to Federico who made our time at the pool perfect. Miss the 1930 house as a bar in the evenings.
