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.

The beach/pool and first-class customer service from the staff are hands down the best part of this hotel for me. Kudos on the free hand sanitizer at check-in and also the texting service which allows guests to text the front desk with questions rather than calling or coming downstairs.

The beach/pool and first-class customer service from the staff are hands down the best part of this hotel for me. Kudos on the free hand sanitizer at check-in and also the texting service which allows guests to text the front desk with questions rather than calling or coming downstairs. There are a few small things that just don't sit right with me. The room itself was great, but it didn't have a refrigerator. That's a basic amenity every hotel room has. We brought snacks/drinks and ended up throwing stuff away. We also ordered room service and the food was delivered in a to-go box with no plate. I understand certain precautions taken due to covid, but no one wants to eat over-easy eggs out of a cardboard box. Also, guests pay a resort fee, yet the hotel charges $20+ for umbrellas at the beach. Like why? The location is in mid beach, so not a whole lot of restaurant options nearby. Free trolley is current out of service due to covid so you have to uber or drive everywhere. Read less

We had a wonderful weekend at the Confidante. Hotel was very classy and refined, from the "backyard" area to the beach was top notch. Everything ran very smoothly, all the employees are great and committed to providing a great experience to the guests. Wonderful service all around. Everyone from the beach crew to the waitresses to the valet and front desk are great! Only thing to be aware of, I believe this is an older hotel and as such the rooms are pretty small. We had a standard king-bed room with an ocean view and the room is pretty cramped for 2 people, not much room to move around. Bathrooms are a good size though. Read less
