I stayed at the Breakers with my family Aug 16-23 this year. What a great stay we had. The hotel staff was curtious and helpful all around. The rooms were clean and spacious (I stayed in the 3 Room Royal Suite in the North Tower). I had two teenage boys, a 3 yr old, my husband and my parents. We had a wonderful ocean view.
The pool bar was only open until 5pm but the food was very good and prices reasonable. We enjoyed the use of the main resort with the Pirate Pool and lazy river, but all of us, including the teenage boys preferred the North Tower. The beach was nicer and the pool area was so much less crowded. It was a much more relaxed atmosphere.
The concierge service is very nice and helpful but they try to push deals on you and get you to tour time share property. The deals they offer are quite significant, but you are required to do the tour in order to get the deal. We ended up doing everything on our own, although we enjoyed Myrtle Beach so much, perhaps a time share isn't such a bad idea.
The location of the hotel couldn't be more convenient. Just 10 minutes from Broadway at the Beach. 15 minutes from the airport. There is miniture golf all over, 10-15 minutes from several different water parks, 15 minutes from Freestyle Music Park which had a great deal if you get there before 4pm only $10 per person.
Only negative comments about the hotel - elevators very slow, the hallways were really hot and a bit dated and the beach towels were more like hand towels, so bring beach towels. Also the beach is public and not run by the hotel so its expensive to rent beach lounges & umbrellas. The hotel has just four cabanas which are first come first serve and they are taken by 7am.
The trip on whole was really wonderful.
