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.

Was very much looking forward to enjoying the beaches reopening. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience with family and friends. All the corona procedures were in place and we felt very safe and comfortable. Josh Meyer went above and beyond to make sure we had the best experience possible. Josh and Autumn at the front desk helped us with all of our annoying questions. They clarified and resolved every small detail with regards to our rate booked which included some great perks such as waived pet fee, parking and a credit for food Felipe and Leo at the pool were attentive to every request. Thank you to all of the Condfidante team , you made our annual family trip perfect in a very challenging environment. Read less

I just got back from spending one night at the Confidante during my three-day whirlwind stay in Miami/Miami Beach. Enough time to get a strong impression though. First, in terms of the "pros" about this hotel: very friendly and seemingly caring staff--in particular Monty at the front desk (and he's also a bell boy) who was so kind, helpful and caring. Right up there with Jose who also is at the front desk. Kudos to them both for being A+ representatives of their hotel! Oh, and they gave out individual mini bottles of sanitizer which I REALLY appreciated. Next, the hotel is in a very prime location on Miami Beach--direct beach access which is very desirable. The building itself is historical and I like that and appreciate it. HOWEVER, the place has a sort of shabby, run-down appearance especially in the halls (rugs, yuck), elevators, and rooms themselves. While the bed was comfortable and the room clean, it seemed dark and sort of...dingy. I hate to say it but I wasn't very impressed with that. Also, there were consistently empty, dirty wine glasses in the hall leading to my room which is a big no-no in my book. Come on house-keeping staff--stay on top of that. The pools area was decent--pool staff didn't seem overly helpful or friendly but not bad either. I don't think I'd return though--there's a lot of other hotels on the beach that may very likely have both a historic building but updated renovations to make it a more attractive stay. Sorry, Confidante, but you can do better! Read less

My husband and I took a 5 day vacation and had an amazing time. The hotel was in a great location away from all the south beach partying which is what we were looking for. The rooms were nice and clean we got an ocean front room and the view was amazing. The pool area was great had nice music playing and bar service. However what we enjoyed the best was the beach which is a short walk from the hotel. Lounge chairs, umbrellas and towels were set up nice and early and the staff was ready to go right at 11. I want to emphasize how amazing the staff at the beach was, Paula, Leslie, Camila, Mishelle and Hector. They all went far and beyond what we were expecting. They all were always on top of our needs making sure we were comfortable, relaxed and having a good time. It’s not always you go to a hotel and have staff treat you like that. So thank you so much Paula, Leslie, Camila. Mishelle and Hector, because of you guys we will definitely be back. Read less

Leo and G were great at the Pool. Leo was attentive and entertaining. At the front desk, Alexis was thorough and informative and made us feel safe. Rooms are clean and the hotel is close to some great restaurants
