“Amazing place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

One of the most incredible places I've ever stayed. Outstanding accommodations for an outstanding value. Entire 2 bed/2 bath condo finished in high end, modern decor. Large balcony with great view of ocean. Beach a little more secluded than some, which is what we were looking for. Good location to go into Fort Walton, Destin or Sandestin. In February, with cleaning fee and taxes included, only $133 per night. Cheaper than any hotel on the beach and so much more!!!

Room Tip: Unit C416 can't be beat!

We stayed here in the middle of September 2011. Our family - a total of 9 people - stayed in one of the three bedroom condos. It's very spacious, there was plenty of room for all of us. My husband has stayed in many condos in different parts of Florida and he said this was the nicest he's ever stayed at. It was also less expensive than any he's stayed at. We had no complaints with our condo. It was so great to have a full kitchen and washer and dryer. It's very conveniently located, with lots of restaurants just a few minutes away. The balcony is so nice. I'm guessing the time of year we went had something to do with it, but we were amazed at how quiet the hotel and beach was. Maybe not for everyone, but great for us.

The beach is gorgeous, prettiest and softest sand I've ever seen - the only thing is there were tons of jellyfish! We were told that that's a pretty regular thing there. We stayed mostly out of the water because of the amount of jellyfish, but when the waves really started rolling there seemed to be fewer of them so we did finally get in without incident.

A few suggestions: if you want beach pictures, google gwynemark photography. They took pics in Destin and we absolutely LOVED them, Gwyne is wonderful to work with and was excellent with my toddler. He's super shy around strangers, will not get his picture taken in a studio and had a cold - you'd never know it from the pictures. I'm usually very frugal but it was worth every penny. We ate at Fish Lipz on our last night and I DO NOT recommend it. We had a horrible experience. Coach N Four - the restaurant itself nothing special and but the food was good. Fudpuckers - average touristy place, they encourage graffiti which is kind of cute, but there are markings on literally every surface of the restaurant which left me with the feeling that I needed to take a shower.

All in all we loved our trip, even though we only stayed for a long weekend it will be a trip we'll never forget!

Stayed at the Breakers for 3 nights. Weather was OK in the low 70's and high 60's. Hotel was a little older and could use updating. The real issue we had was with the AC in our room. We called the front desk to complain and was told the owners of this room had locked the AC so it would not go below 72 degrees. This is OK during the day but at night with all the humidity it was hot in the rooms. This unit is a 3 bed 3 bath unit. Everyone complanined about the heat or lack of AC. The desk said there was nothing they could do about it since it was the owner of the unit that locked the system out. . So I would advise not to stay in unit 601W unless you like to sleep without any covers and still be hot. We also saw another unit 316W that had no AC issues and was much nicer unit. Would never stay here again. Would prefer to go to Destin or San Destin.

Room Tip: 316 W was a nice room. 601W has AC issues and needs updating.

We have stayed at the Breakers multiple times over the years. Even had our wedding down on the beach there. Hands down the prettiest white sand I've seen anywhere in the US or Carribean. The rooms are always nice and clean. They all face the ocean and the view is awesome. The grounds and pool area are well maintained. Kids and I love the tennis courts.

The area is more laid back then Destin which is right down the road. The biggest complaint I have, and why I gave only four stars, is that years ago they took out the hottub. It can get cold up in the panhandle during winter and we like to travel down between Christmas and New Years. They do heat the pool somewhat, but it's still chilly, and the kids love jumping in and out of a hottub to break the chill. Other that that, the place is perfect. Only about a 10 hr drive from Indiana. We plan to return soon.

We spent four days here around Thanksgiving. It was our first time to the area. The condo was perfect. Great view!!!!! Our one-bedroom condo was very nice, nice furnishings, clean and perfect size. The breakers staff was helpful and efficient. We paid off-season prices so it was great and had great weather. We'd definitely go back. Great places around there.... Helen Back Cafe/Bar, Howl at Moon for some fun in Fort Walton. Tightlines and AJ's in Destin Harbour.
