BreakFree Beachpoint
Reviewed 18 January 2013 via mobile

The rooms here are a great size and you have everything you need. Good pool and fantastic location, straight across from the beach and a short walk to cavil. Staff were more then helpful when any problem arose.

I do agree the rooms weren't super clean, and you only get housekeeping if you stay more then 8 days. We stayed for 10 but only got house keeping once. Also we had to pay a charge of $10 to use the tennis court which you think would be included. Plus if you don't do your dishes before you leave you get charged $25, the last thing I want to do on my nice holiday is dishes.

Clearly an older hotel, but if you don't let little things get to you youll have a great time.

Holiday apartment was atrocious, oven putrid and full of grease on oven racks and oven trays. Range hood dripped of oil every time we tried to cooked dinner. 2 out of the four elements on the cooktop did not work. When we first arrived to our hotel room the kitchen smelt of cooked fish. The cleaners only used odour neutraliser as a temporary measure. One of the single beds had 4 broken legs out of the six. Smoke alarms clotted with dust. Fridge constantly leaked water and didn't cool the food properly. We spoke to reception on 3 occasions over the first 4 days that we were there and on two of the occasions the receptionist said that the manager would contact us. We never saw the manager at all. We even wrote a letter of complaint about the poor conditions of the hotel on Christmas eve. It is now the 3rd January and we have not been approached or contacted by the hotel. We also had one 2ltr pot to cook with. The toaster was unusable and when we gave it to reception, 2 days later we had to ask for a replacement as one was not offered. We were suppose to get house keeping done in the middle of our 8 day stay and which never happened. The clothes dryer didn't work properly, it took 1hr on the high heat setting to dry our costumes.

Room Tip: Look at the title of our review. "stay away from Beachpoint"

I am writing this as we are staying here. We spent our other 3 days at another apartment (Mantra Wings) and it was perfect. This place is a disappointment for the same price. It's old and smells old. The windows, doors, mirrors and walls are all dirty. The refrigerator is old as is the kitchen and appliances. Guests are informed, that if the dishes are not washed prior check out, there is a charge of $25.00au. It is in desperate need of renovation and new furnishings for the price of stay and rating it only a 2 out of 10. 1 for the location (but not really bothered) and 1 for the size of rooms. Sorry but not worth the money.

We stayed here for a week in December and loved it! I was really scared after reading some reviews but if you're the kinda of person who doesn't get caught up on the little things (like us) it's perfect!
we were friendly greeted and shown to our room - some reviews mentioned there was a bad smell, we didn't notice a thing apart from the underground carpark -but hey, you're only in the carpark for a minute anyway!
Everything was as expected, all the proper furnishings and really big lounge/kitchen space. A few marks on the kitchen bench and a missing tile outside, but who cares when you can wake up to the most amazing view every day.
Reception were more than helpful as well! Will definitely stay here again :)

Room Tip: 17f was a great one bedroom room - top floor!

Arrived just a little after midday, reception was friendly and knowlegible pointing me in all the right directions to visit the sights.Room was clean, modern decor and a good bed, the one minus the toilet roll was down to about dozen sheets and no spare rolls in sight a call to reception quicky fixed that.Location is great to everything that makes surfers fun city, the only other minus to this stay was coming back to my room after a night out and heading out to the balcony for some air and witness the young woman on the balcony below having a technicolur yawn, but all up great digs.

Our family stayed for four nights in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 11th floor with an ocean view. Our room had recently been renovated and it was great. The kids loved both the indoor and out door pool. The location is really convenient with beach access straight across the road. The front desk staff were very helpful in booking theme park tickets and accomodating when we accidently left a few items when we checked out. Overall we had a really nice stay with an amazing view!!
