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.

With the exception of the light over the minibar never being fixed, all was great. Drinks and food were very good. I also want to mention the beach service. During previous stays, it was extremely slow and inattentive. This stay was much different. Adriano (beach service) was amazing. He made sure we were enjoying ourselves and everything was good. Thanks to both Josh and Adriano for a great stay. Read less

Even during this challenging time for the hospitality industry, the Confidante team was ready and prepared to address any concerns and ensure our stay was a positive experience. The dedicated beach area was great, as was the personalized service. They even prepared boxed breakfast items once they were required to close the buffet area.

Had an amazing time here, spend 3 days with a couple of friends for a getaway and the staff was amazing. From the front desk to the beach attendant (Decarlo) who was really friendly and respectful. We had a great time!
