“Turn down the music in the breakfast room!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Breakers has been my favorite hotel for many years. I was coming alone here to write my novels in a peaceful environment. I was bringing my kids here for vacation. I met my husband and we spent our honeymoon here. Now, we are coming every year... because you are just the best.
My only complaint is the loud music in the breakfast room. Both at Papa's and at the North Tower the guests are forced to listen to radio stations that match the discos rather than a relaxing time we all are looking for in coming to the beach. Two years ago, when at Papa's the reception was kept by an older lady, the music was quiet, fine, deep in the background, therefore pleasing the visitors. When the old lady left, a young one took over changing the radio station and the volume. After severel times suffering with the noise we changed the breakfast restaurant. This year we have the same situation at the breakfast room at the North Tower. Both yesterday and today young men are handling the music. And it is loud and aggressive.
The guests I saw in the breakfast room are approximately between 50 and 85. Who - do you think - gets pleased by the disco music for breakfast?
You do not have to be a brain expert to know that a music taste varies from person to person like the food. It is not beneficial for Breakers business to force the guests to consume neither the food nor the music that they might not like.
Another thing, the hotel staff probably should have learned in the management school, is that one of the factors that distinguish a fine restaurant from the "less fine" is the volume and type of music. In a high class restaurant the music is soft and almost not to hear. You can improve the impression of a restaurant if you put the music in the back ground where it belongs.
I hope that the management of my favorite hotel will consider my review seriously for the benefit of both the hotel and the guests.
Sincerely,
Mrs. Krys Pence

We stayed this weekend 11/17/12 to 11/19/12 at the Breakers North Tower room 953 and had a wonderful time. The staff is courteous and accommodating. The property is clean and kept up. The rates were very reasonable. We only had an outdoor pool and hot tub on this property but a few blocks down at he original Breakers we had privileges to use the indoor pool. Parking is not an issue and right across the street. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: 953 was our room and it was an oceanfront queen with kitchen and living room two queen beds and the...

We have stayed at the Breakers for several years now. The staff is helpful. My Grandson who is 3 1/2 loved the pool area. The ship and the wading pool were great for him. We also enjoyed the lazy river. You can't beat the location. Minutes from alot of restaurants.

Room Tip: Ocean front rooms are great. Do NOT book a room through Allegiant Air, they had our room all messed...

I chose this resort for my fall vacation (November 9-12, 2012) due to the indoor water park and location, and my husband and I had a blast. It was our first time coming to the beach during this time of the year, and we were pleased with the amenities. We stayed in the Paradise Tower, which housed all the indoor amenities ( pool, kiddie pool, lazy river hot tubs, etc.). The pools were heated, which allows swimming all year round. We also had drinks and hung out at the Red Parrot our first night. The drinks and atmosphere was wonderful. Thank you Breakers for a wonderful mini vacation. We will be back.

I just got back from The Breakers. It was awesome! Room clean, staff awesome.
The View was so nice. Get ocean front if you appreciate seeing the sun set and the beautiful ocean. Its not just a room, you have a sofa in the other room to watch tv. Try it.

Room Tip: Ask the reservationist about the hotels and rooms so you can get the one that best fits your family...

We've been coming to the Breakers after Labor Day probably 7 out of the last 10 years - no matter what building we are in, we always find clean, comfortable accommodations. The front desk is very helpful, and the different pools/amenities are great. We always get a room with stove/microwave/refrig so that we can save money by not eating out the whole time. It helps to prepare a couple of family favorite recipes ahead of time and bring to cook there. We also go to Kroger's close by on the way in and stock up on breakfast, drink and snack items.

There were Groupons advertised for another property at Myrtle Beach, but even with their discounted price, the Breakers Resort was less expensive for 3 nights!

Even though our daughters are now 18 and 13 and perhaps a little old for the Pirate Pool, they still enjoy this property. We love the Breakers! You can't go wrong with their specials, location, and proximity to the ocean.

We once again hosted a small conference at The Breakers. The event planning staff was excellent, the food and room received many compliments and the wait staff was very accommodating and exceeded our expectations. The sleeping rooms were clean and comfortable, and the view, location and amenities were great!

Room Tip: get an ocean view or side view room. it is well worth it!
