The Confidante

Miami Beach, Miami

Virgin rating

The hotel

Perfectly positioned between South Beach and Miami Beach stands The Confidante, in all its art-deco glory. Right on the beachfront, you’ll be able to step out onto the sands in an instant. Or if sand between your toes isn’t your thing, you can choose between the two outdoor pools instead, complete with funky, colourful cabanas. Fancy a massage? Treat yourself and head to the rooftop spa. And when the evenings roll around, make the most of happy hour, try some Southern-inspired food, and relax under the stars, the sound of the ocean waves in the background.

Had a great experience by the beach. Giancarlo and David helped us get chairs by the beach and helped us make sure we had umbrellas and fresh towels. I will say service was a little slow but everyone was very lovely and helpful. Great experience.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the hotel and it had excellent service. We went down to the beach nearly everyday and were met with amazing and kind faculty. Special shout out to Martin on how he helped us feel comfortable and made sure we had everything we need. Great employee.

Great experience with Malik at the confidante. Super helpful with beach chairs, towels and umbrella set up! Also good drinks and food so we could relax and enjoy our day at the beach. Definitely recommend spending the day or more with them!

Great hotel! Staff is lovely, rooms are sizable (and clean), and beach is remarkable. No shortage of chairs, really friendly staff, and in a great location. It’s not such a party hotel which is nice if you’re not looking for that; however, it’s near everything you need or want.

I had a lovely time under the umbrella at the beach. Alex and the rest of the staff at the beach made my vacation quite enjoyable! Everyone at the hotel was very attentive and friendly. The drinks and food were all very tasty. The mac and cheese was my favorite!
