My family spent a week at this resort during the September holidays. Wow, we loved the awesome views and excellent location, the apartment was perfect for us. Great sized rooms, modern kitchen with stone bench top, light, fresh and airy family room. Our beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms were modern and well appointed. Behind double mirror screen doors, were complete laundry facilites. Within the wardrobes, complete with hangers, was an ironing board, iron and clothes horse. There was nothing else we could possible have needed. All this across the road from the beach, and walking distance to Caville Av. All the staff were wonderful and most helpful. We enjoyed a family hit of tennis, and swam in the indoor pool which was lovely and warm. My son used the gym each morning before his beach walk before breakfast. We were lucky to get a special deal that was available during the dates of our stay so had without a doubt, excellent value for money. Well done to Mark and the team at Breakfree Longbeach

Room Tip: Higher units have the best views. Our room had been recently refursihed and was wonderful.

My boyfriend and I just spent 6 nights at Breakfree Longbeach in Surfers Paradise in a one bedroom apartment - it was exactly what we were after and we had a great time! The apartment was well equipped with everything you could want, a great kitchen and large bathroom. We only swam in the indoor pool and the spa as the weather was pretty overcast during our stay, but the facilities were great and we also played some tennis on the court. Perfect views of the ocean, metres from the beach and the ideal distance from Cavill Avenue - close enough to take a 5 minute stroll to the attractions but far enough away to not hear the noise. All staff we dealt with were great - all in all our stay was wonderful! Thanks!

Room Tip: We had room 1004 and it was great!

We have just spent 5 relaxing and enjoyable days at this resort and our overall experience here was very good. It has large picture windows providing excellent views up and down the coast, and we were able to see whales and dolphins from the balcony. We were on the 23rd floor (2303) which offered un-interrupted views. It's location is perfect - close enough to walk to Cavill Avenue (about 600 metres) without being right in the noisy centre.
The resort has great facilities - a good-sized indoor heated pool, outdoor pool, spa and sauna, bbq and gym. The staff were very friendly and happy to help with all our requests, which included asking for a unit on a higher level and an extra pillow.
The rooms are spacious and the furnishings are quite modern. There are 2 very comfy 2-seater leather couches in the lounge, but the main gripe we have is that the mattress was rather thin and uncomfortable and there is still a small, old-style TV in the unit. 2 other units we saw had flat-screen TV's though. These units are individually owned, so each one would be differently furnished.
On the whole, we were very happy at Longbeach and will be happy to return there for a future holiday.

Room Tip: Request a high level, corner unit for amazing views.

Hi Von14

Thank you for the review. Our location, room sizes and the views afforded by all rooms are what our guests like most about our resort. The whales this season have been performing well for some of our visitors.
Your comments regarding the bed and tv will be passed on to the owners of that apartment so we can try to keep up to date with our offerings.
Our team here look forward to welcoming you when you choose to stay with us again.

Kind Regards

Rooms were spacious, we had a good view of the sea, location was great - across the road from the beach and close to Surfers itself.

Beautiful views, excellent facilities, great management team always happy and obliging. We didn't want to go home. The whale watching from the living room was spectacular. Nothing was too much trouble for Mark and his friendly team. With out a doubt it is the best service we have ever experienced on a world class scale.

We were really surprised by the quality of these apartments! Living space was large enough for 6, and the rooms and bathrooms were really modern. The kitchen was well equipped at allowed us to cook for meals to save some cash. The view we had of the main beach was amazing through the large windows; the beach was only across a small road so the apartments aren't situated directly on the beach. Reception staff were really nice and accommodating to our needs. The walk to cavil avenue is about 10-15 minutes.

Room Tip: 2301 was a great room with really nice views

This place is really value for money, especially if you can get a deal. The location is perfect, easy walking distance to the beach and cavill Mall, but far enough away that its not noisy. It's a little bit run down, but it'll only bother you if youre a bit pedantic, little things like dents in the walls, peeling paint etc, nothing that faults its livability but it really looks as though it could do with an upgrade.

The staff were very welcoming and friendly and let us up early, easily the best thing about this place, that or the perfect views of the beach, bliss!

There were a couple of things that let the place down, the biggest one for me was the fact that the shower ran out of hot water after 10 minutes, not sure if there was a problem with the heating system, but it happened more than once so its definitely something that needs looking into. Possibly connected to the water issue was the fact that the spa pool was luke warm at best, which was a let down. We also found our apartment had a bit of a dust issue, not the best for an asthmatic.

I'd definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room with a seaview.

Dear Mellygator

Thank you for the time in providing feedback on your stay. I will pass your comments on to the team, as a "pat on the back" is encouraging.

The spa heater was struggling at your time of stay as one of the three heating elements had blown, this was replaced in June 2011. The hot water running cold after 10 minutes had no bearing on any other outside influence. With all units individually owned and having different interior fitouts we constantly try to provide a suitable level of comfort and decor' in rooms for guests. We have several rooms currently undergoing tidy ups and refurbishments.

We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

Kind regards,

Mark Powell
