My wife and I spent a week at the Breakers. When we arrived there was no one to greet us. There was a note on the managers door to let us know which condo we were staying in. Unfortunately, the room was not the one we had paid when we booked online. It was an ocean view and if you positioned your head at the side window just right you could see the ocean. We had asked and paid for an oceanfront room and they stuck us in one of the condos closer to the street. We had to wait until that evening before one of the managers/owners, Robert, arrived and he did move us to the right room. Unfortunately, the air conditioning wasn't working and the condo became a sweat box. There was a lovely ocean breeze so we thought we could open the windows, but then we noticed signs that the management didn't want you to open the windows. It was late, so the first night we toughed it out and told Robert about the a/c problem. He said he would fix it. When we got back from diving that day the a/c still wasn't working, the place only had a few other people at it and we asked if it would be easier to move to another room with a/c but he insisted that he had fixed it. To make a long story short, after working on the a/c all day, and not being able to fix it, he finally got us a new a/c for the room the next day.
We spent most of our days shore diving, which is some of the best diving in the world. A lot of the dive sites are close to shore and only takes a short swim to reach. We thought the local food was delicious and priced reasonable. The local people are shy at first, but if you are friendly to them first, then they seem to open up and are very friendly. We heard a lot of good stories from some of the older Caymanians.
We would definitely go back to the Brac, but not stay at the Breakers again. The condos are nice enough, but they are far away from everything, there is no place to buy food or drinks nearby, and the management is not good. I heard that they are building another condo next door. Hopefully, they will hire a professional management team that knows how to make a guest feel welcome,comfortable and want to come back..
