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.

Beautiful hotel directly on the beach. So many great things about this place. The view, the boardwalk, the beach, the pools, the bar and happy hour. There are some drawbacks though. The hotel is dated and really needs an upgrade. No hot tubs and the lock on our door was broken. That can be overlooked by all the other great things about the place.… Read more
Beautiful hotel directly on the beach. So many great things about this place. The view, the boardwalk, the beach, the pools, the bar and happy hour. There are some drawbacks though. The hotel is dated and really needs an upgrade. No hot tubs and the lock on our door was broken. That can be overlooked by all the other great things about the place. What’s tough to overlook though is the staff. The staff are really hit or miss. The valets, front desk and beach staff are fantastic. The staff at the pool and the restaurant are painfully slow and at times, simply rude. A 20% automatic gratuity is included on every food and drink bill. As a result they have no desire to do anything quickly or to be extra helpful. At one point, while poolside I ordered a salad. After waiting for an hour I approached my waitress who was playing on her phone and asked about my order. She came out with the salad after another 20 minutes and apologized that she forgot to put in the order. That service was typical of the 3 days we were there. I love staying at Hyatt properties but this didn’t feel like a Hyatt. More like a Best Western or a Holiday Inn. Great place overall. They just need to replace some locks and some of those servers.

Another great stay at the Confidante. We spent most of our time at the beach and the service by Joseph, Rodger, PJ, Alejandro, and Naeem was excellent - making sure we had everything we needed. Look forward to returning again.

From the lobby you'd expect you're in for a treat of Deco-proportions, but the elevators give it away. This hotel needs a full makeover. The period-appropriate furniture in the rooms is a nice touch but the elevators, carpet, hallways between hotel sections and the banquet/meeting facilities need redone. The staff was courteous but was not able to… Read more
From the lobby you'd expect you're in for a treat of Deco-proportions, but the elevators give it away. This hotel needs a full makeover. The period-appropriate furniture in the rooms is a nice touch but the elevators, carpet, hallways between hotel sections and the banquet/meeting facilities need redone. The staff was courteous but was not able to help when a loud banging noise kept hammering in the ceiling of my bathroom. No rooms were available for me to transfer into so I had to sleep with a banging noise every night. Thank God I had sleeping pills with me on this trip or I'd have gotten no sleep. I would pick a different hotel for a future stay in this area. Read less

This is a beautiful hotel! The staff was excellent! The beach was beautiful. Fun and trendy venue. Close to South Beach but not so close you have to deal with the noisy crowds. I would absolutely return to this hotel.
