“Great location, service and overall experience)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2011

We spent 4 nights at The Breakers - We were very happy with the overall service and experience and would probably stay here again. I booked via email which was super easy as they responded quickly and answered all of my queries. I requested an apartment with an ocean view ($15 extra per night) and we were happy with our apartment (Level 5 room 33), we had a good view of the beach and could sit on our balcony and watch the surfers and bodyboarders. We were given clear directions on how to check in late so that wasn't a hassle at all. Apart from the sound of the waves crashing and kids playing in the pools the apartments were very peaceful and quiet, we hardly heard anybody else around us.

Our 1 bedroom apartment was very spacious and clean. the bathroom had a huge shower, vanity and mirror. The kicthen had a full size fridge, oven and cook top, dishwasher and all cutlery/crockery. The laundry was fitted out with a washing machine and dryer.

The pool was great, as were the sun lounges, BBQ area and the fact that the beach was just 2 steps through a gate from the hotel property.

We were allocated a secure car spot (at no extra charge) under the building which we hadn't requested, but we did end up hiring a car so it was good to have it available.

beach towel hire was only $2.50 a towel and they weren't strict about returning the towels, we just gave them back when we checked out.

The location was really good, a slow 20 minute walk along the beach or footpath to Caville Ave in Surfers paradise (we didn't want to be too close) and about 15-20 minutes in the other direction to broadbeach mall - about a 5 minute drive either way depending on traffic.

Room Tip: Request a room with an ocean view and air con

After a long travel it was fun to be so close to the beach to actually it. This hotel is good overall, the location is excellent and the rooms were pretty clean. We only stayed 1 night, but would of stayed longer. We would recommend the Breakers.

My husband & I stayed at The Breakers in October 2011. Everything you need for a comfortable stay. Well appointed units, fully equipped overlooking the sea & beach. Nice pool, BBQ area, close to shopping & restaurants. You couldn't ask for more in this type of accomadation. The front desk people are very pleasant and helpful as well.. Would certainly recommend this property.

The Breakers is an apartment building right on the beach in a quiet residential part of the Gold Coast right between Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach. You walk out the basement to a nice pool and BBQ area and right onto the golden sandy beach. The apartments are spacious and comfortably appointed with lovely sea views. There is a free parking space. We were very pleased with our stay as the apartment was spacious enough for a 3 year old not to get cabin fever. There is a nice cafe about 500m down the road towards Broadbeach which does good coffee and food. The only problem is that to stay here you really need to have a car as the location is not that near to any significant retail or dining areas. With a car though it is very easy to get around.
