We have just stayed at the Breakfree Wings for a 7 night break in a 2 bedroom executive apartment. The apartment was lovely - clean, modern, large, lots of storage, and a wonderful spa bath. The best thing is that there was no noise from the neighbours - fantastic soundproofing. (We have 2 small boys who make quite a lot of noise, so we are always conscious of this with accommodation).
Breakfree have a reception desk in the lobby, and were great with information regarding public transport and directions. The bus stop is right outside the hotel.
The photos of the pool we had seen on the website are a bit deceiving - the pool is very good, but not quite as good as the photos lead you to believe. Its great for little ones as there is baby wading area at one end of the pool where they can paddle around whilst you watch from the deeper end. We didn't use the tennis court, but it seemed popular and well maintained, as did the gym.
They have a lovely BBQ area with tables & chairs and a fenced-in playground located close by which is great. Our afternoon ritual was to let the boys have a play in the playground whilst we sat and had our own 'happy hour'.
The only negative thing I would say about Wings is the location. It is half-way between Surfers & Broadbeach, which means everytime you want to go somewhere its at least a 15-20 min walk in either direction. Also, we were on the 7th floor and still had noise coming up from the highway beneath which did interrupt time spent on the balcony.
Overall, a great holiday destination with lovely facilities and spotlessly clean. Recommended.
