“Quite a surprise”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

We stayed at the breakers the last week of May for a week on our way to Orlando. The unit was quite comfortable and clean. I liked the idea that you did not need a key as there was a combination lock to enter. Very close to shopping and restaurants. The beach was a stone throw away. Would of rather had a better view as our balcony was over the parking lot. Check your units view before you book. Not all overlook the ocean and pool. There are no elevators so beware if climbing stairs are a problem. The pool was very nice and well kept up. If you like going into the ocean beware of Sting Rays. Two people were stung in shallow water who were staying in our development within the week. Very painful and their vacation was ruined. The lifeguards do not like to talk about the sting rays because the city is afraid of losing the tourism crowd. Felt like Brody from Jaws always watching for them. They are in shallow water off the beach line. Very dangerous. We did not go into the ocean after that. Be careful.

Room Tip: Remember there are no elevators and some rooms overlook the parking lot

Terrific view of the pool and beach. Right across the street from Coligny Plaza. This is on the third floor, which is actually four flights of stairs. No elevator, be aware of that. Walking up all of those flights is a bear. Not much square footage, but that was OK. We had two children besides the two of us. There was enough room. Clean. Kitchen well equipped. Rental company was attentive, very nice, and professional. We will stay here again.

We had a mostly good time here. The room was clean and had a great view of the ocean. It is a great place for a couple. The property is close to many restaurants and shopping. A couple of items to consider are the second and first floor have a patio above you so it provides shade and a great place to enjoy the view without getting too much sun. The problem is that if you have a group above you and they are up late at night, you may not get much sleep. With hard floors above you, you hear all sounds. It makes sleeping impossible.

Room Tip: Check out the website to view the rooms. Be careful to make sure you are getting one right on the oc...

I have stayed at Breakers 3 times now. My first and last experience was a flop. Not impressed with my accomodations either time. The 2nd stay was very nice and the condo had lots of upgrades. Please make sure you review the unit description and pictures before booking. If it looks questionable, find another unit. Also note that they complex has no elevators. The positives are you are close to shopping and dining and are directly on the beach. Plenty to do nearby if you don't mind a little walking.

Our place was clean with ocean view at a good price. It had cute decor & comfortable beds. It sleeps 6 but it would be very crowded with this many. Very convenient to shopping & restaurants across the street. The down side is 3rd floor with no elevator! Also was difficult to cook in this unit only 1 small burner worked. The oven is old. Skillets in room almost unusable. Outdoor patio furniture rusted. My biggest disappointment was there are no grills on the property. I always love to grill once or twice on vacation. We enjoyed our stay & it was at a good price.

I will not complain about our unit, we enjoyed it very much, the property itself is in need of maintenance. The garbage went un emptied for 1 week, we stayed for 2 weeks, pool side garbage was overflowing, as was the dumpster from the restaurants in front of the property. Several of us renters complained to our owners and it was emptied but we did wait a week. You could really use security, we saw one guard the entire 2 weeks, he was only there a few hours for one day. The stairs, porches and entire property is sad looking, needs paint and a sweeping-this used to be done in previous years daily, we saw nobody in the 2 weeks we were there. Hate to see the place looking so worn, pool furniture is poor, what's with the tables???? We love the breakers, but feel it's going to down hill and not being maintained, which will not bring families and us responsible renters back, we will consider other options next yr. So sad, loved the Breakers for 19 yrs but has gone down for sure, come on owners speak up!!!

Spent the first week of April in Breakers 319. Jim was kind, prompt and willing to work with our schedule and requests. Online pics are accurate; condo is cozy, clean and comfortable for two. Kitchen well stocked with cookware/utensils. Location is superb! Right on the beach. Across from all kinds of shopping, including Piggly Wiggly with normal prices and anything you need. We rented bikes for the week and rode everywhere- the best! No elevator only meant we could exercise off our wonderful seafood meals as we climbed to 3rd floor. No complaints.
