“Not very satisfied with this resort.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

My husband and I stayed here May 31st for 7 nights. We exchanged our timeshare week through Interval Exchange. After looking at all the on-line pictures of the Breakers showing it right on the water, that's what we expected...... but were VERY UNHAPPY to be told that our one bedroom unit was across the street with no view of water at all. Then to top it off.... when we get in to the unit, we see that it is a handicap accessible room.... meaning it has no bathtub... not even a shower stall.... it more or less has a shower curtain up across part of the room to allow for a wheel chair to roll in. The water was either scalding hot or ice cold.... no in between. The sink in the bathroom had absolutely no counter space.... just a sink on the wall.... which means you have no place to put your toiletries. We actually ended up bringing in one of the living room end tables in to the bathroom, just to have SOMETHING to put our things on. I talked to the front desk several times about getting us moved to a 'regular' room..... they at first said possibly in a day or two they would have another unit available but they never called me back.... I had to keep calling them to check on the matter. Seemed like we were just getting the run-around. We finally just gave up on it. Nobody at the front desk went out of their way to help.... quite disappointing.
The resort also states that they have free Internet access but it RARELY worked. I heard other guest complaining about not being able to connect too... all the front desk personnel would say is " all I can do is reset it'.... but the situation never improved over the entire week.
We completely enjoyed our week on the cape but would definitely NOT stay here again.

We had a 2 bdrm/2 bath unit for four people. It was very clean and comfortable, decor and colors were cheerful during a cold and sometimes dreary week. Jacuzzi tub (next to dining room table) was great--kids enjoyed it. View of ocean from windows was great (room 205)--would recommend room in ocean-side building, and the two-bedroom was great. Coffeemaker is 10 cup, no filters provided (uses cone-shape). Beach towels provided in rooms. Free laundry facility (opens at 9am), wi-fi is free for time-share owners/exchange, surcharge is for renters. Nice WARM pool and hot tub next door at The Soundings (very appreciated when weather isn't great and kids need something to do). Outdoor pools at Breakers were not open when we were there--too cold. Beach area is nice, but we didn't get to enjoy it b/c of cold/wind. Did see a few ants near jacuzzi in room, tried to be careful w/ food and crumbs and it didn't become a problem. Hairdryer supplied in each bath, but I used my own b/c it has cooler settings. Parking is challenging--skinny spaces, uncovered, have to turn around in small lot to exit.

Let me start by saying we had a lovely experience here. There are not a lot of truly luxury accommodations on cape cod and this was a super clean and renovated and comfortable moderate accommodation. The location of your unit makes a big difference. The views on the ocean side make up for some eccentricities. We exchanged into a 2 bedroom and also booked an extra 1 bedroom ocean front that we paid for. We had six people; 4 adults and two 15 year olds. We couldn't have fit in the 2 bedroom alone. I guess we are beyond the sleeper sofa stage. However it is big enough to squish in one twin aero bed if you don't mind it sticking out into the living room. The two bedroom had ocean views out the side windows, the 1 bedroom had full ocean front views, both water views were looking over a dining room table and indoor jacuzzi bathtub. The table and bathtub are in an area that used to be an outside porch that has been incorporated into the room. That makes the living space larger, but there isn't a porch or balcony. There is a kitchenette with no stove or oven. There is a microwave, toaster, full small fridge and coffee maker. Full dishes and utensils. We brought a hot plate to boil things, and an electric fry pan to sauté or steam shellfish. We were set! The walls are thin, but the bathrooms are clean and the place was really functional. We had fun playing cards and watching basketball, and listening to the waves. Furniture was comfortable. Recommend asking for the 1 bedroom ocean front second floor. It's the best room in the house.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms have better views. Try to get on the ocean side as there are units across the str...

We stayed at the Breakers after New Year’s. The staff was very friendly but we had to check in next door at the Soundings. We booked a one bedroom "oceanfront" but they initially gave us a loft condo at the other end of the building. Still could see the ocean but not oceanfront. They did upgrade to an ocean front overlooking the pool which overlooked the ocean. It took 3 hours for the temperature in the room to increase 4 degrees. If it wasn't for the electric fireplace it would have been too chilly. If you are on the top floor there is only a middle entrance so lugging things to your room can be cumbersome. The room manual called for a $25.00 a day room cleaning charge which we did not take "advantage" of so I don't know if they would have charged us anyway. There was no cook stove so unless you ate out all the time or bought TV dinners for the microwave you’d go hungry. The parking lot was poorly maintained with a lot of slippery ice. Forgive me for being so negative, but I don't think we got our monies worth.

Room Tip: Book an upstairs room because the bottom floors hear a lot of what's happening upstairs.

We had a great stay - the room was clean and easy to live in. The kitchen was great but there wasn't anything to heat food (no stove or microwave) so if you're coming for a long stay bring a hot plate! Otherwise it was fantastic - we're coming back for sure. We came in November when things are quiet and it was PERFECT!

We absolutely love the Breakers!!! Being timeshare owners elsewhere on the Cape, we come to the Breakers at least once a year because it is like being in heaven. We are here for a week in Nov. & have not seen any construction. The staff is wonderful & we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom when we arrived!!! It doesn't get better than that. There are 3 flat screen TVs & we can see the ocean from our room. Do not listen to the last review. Some people are never happy. I was worried about sleeping in the bed cause I have back problems, but not to worry, it was very comfortable. There are 2 restaurants within walking distance if you like to walk.
