My second trip to the Breakers was this past August. We were pleasantly surprised in August 2008 so decided to book again and we had the same WONDERFUL experience at this condo. The Sailfish Tower is newly part of The Breakers Resort complex but is seperate from the hussel & bussel that you will find with the big resort but you get all the amenities that come with a larger beach condo. The in room amenities are rather basic. You get a suite type floor plan with a front bedroom then kitchen & bathroom that walk thru to the living area that has an additional murphy wall bed (the most comfortable bed in the room). You have wifi access that was very easy to access but rather slow. The kitchen is equiped pretty basically but has a full fridge, stove and microwave. The housekeeping & maintanence staff is friendly and respond quickly if there is a problem or request. The front desk staff is VERY helpful and friendly. Both years we arrived before check in time and were able to pay, receive a parking tag & get a key to their gym facilities so that we could change clothes and head to the beach ASAP until our room was ready. They have a decent pool bar just a couple buildings down in the main Breakers building. They have activities for children and a DJ during the weekend out by the pool. I would recommend the mail Breakers buildings if you are traveling with children but if you are adults without kids take the Sailfish...it's much more quite and further away from the lazy river and pirate ship pool that the children love. We will be visiting again this year and I hope that our experience is the same as the last two years. Very affordable for the quality and location. You can walk to several restaurants and bars as well as an icecream shop and starbucks which are located across the street under the parking garage. We really enjoy the Bummz Beach Cafe located beside the main Breakers building. This is a must! Great beachy food, sandwiches, some seafood, cold beer and a delightful atmosphere with a deck area that you can walk up to from the beach and enjoy lunch, a drink and typically a local musician in a great beachy atmosphere...we usually visit here several times during our stay! The Breakers Sailfish is a great place to stay if you are looking for a decent room for resting in between beaching it...if you are looking for upscale you won't find that here but this is great place for the price if you are looking for something clean and convenient with a beachfront room that won't break the bank.
