The Confidante

Miami Beach, Miami

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.

The Confidante is a nice hotel in mid-beach. Close enough to the hustle and bustle of South Beach to be convenient, but far enough to avoid the anything too crazy. The proximity to 41st street and its bridge also made it convenient to travel to/from Miami.

We had a fantastic trip to The Confidante! The view from our balcony was amazing. The beach and pool area were great with yummy cocktails. The Ambersweet was just ok for the big price tag. But overall we would definitely visit again!
