“Relaxing and Convenient”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014 via mobile

Resort rooms great, clean, roomy and have great conveniences to cook, wash and dry clothes. I found this good just before flying out overseas. Close to shops and restaurants if going out is your thing. 10 min walk to main shopping centre and close to local attractions and surrounding mountains

great price, room was nice but the overall cleanliness of the place left a lot to be desired... There was mould in the ensuite shower cubicle and hairs in the drain of the spa... Food particles found on the crockery and cutlery. Staff mostly friendly

This was our second stay in BreakFree Grand Pacific.
Our first was on the Australia Day long weekend in 2011. My wife and I had a one-room unit overlooking the pool, … and a comfortable, enjoyable time.
This time, it was a two-bedroom apartment with a perfect view over Pumicestone Passage, towards Bribie Island and Golden Beach, a luxurious outlook: the colours; regular fly-pasts by brahminy kites, pelicans and seagulls; the waterfront activity of fishermen and joggers.
Across the street is the boardwalk leading to King’s Beach -- a beautiful and easy walk each morning.
Break-Free is close to Caloundra’s central business and a range of cafés and restaurants. Our unit, self-contained and very well equipped, also allowed us to enjoy meals in our room.
The Reception staff were friendly and accommodating.
Our room was spacious, nicely appointed and decorated. Starter-packs of toiletries were provided. There were a couple of minor plumbing problems in the bathroom.
Most memorable was the view from our balcony, always changing, always beautiful.

Stayed at the Breakfree Caloundra to attend the Ladies Oaks Cup at the Sunshine Coast Turf Club
The room was excellent, clean comfortable and large. Our rooftop BBQ area was amazing and lying in the four people Jacuzzi was so wonderful. (Would recommend you select the rooms with the rooftop access)
Good allocated car parking, a wonderful large pool and lawn area in the middle of the Resort.
The facilities in the room was more than we expected and the bed was extremely comfortable
The rooftop air conditioning was a little loud but overall a very good experience.
The staff at check in were a little rude and not of the usually standard we expect from Breakfree and it was the first time we have been told “check in is not until 2pm so the room won’t be ready to then” (it was 12.30 pm) We have travelled extensively and are aware that a at times the rooms won’t be ready until after check in time but if we are there a little early we like to get the paperwork completed so we can go off exploring but this time that all seemed way to hard for this staff member.
We hadn’t received the promised phone call so when we went to reception 2.10pm and was told, I was about to call you, so we got our keys and made our way to our room on the other side of the resort with our luggage to find the key didn’t work, I had to walk all the way back to reception only to be told “they always work and I have reset them to make sure”.
Fortunately, after that uncomfortable experience the rest of the stay was excellent and we would recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Get a rooftop access with BBQ abd Jacuzzi

Dear MSH35

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at BreakFree Grand Pacfic. It is great to read that you found the unit to be clean and comfortable and that you also were able to enjoy one of our spacious roof top units with amazing views over Pumicestone Passage. I am also pleased to read that your enjoyed the facilities at the resort including the pool area and recently upgraded lawn area. Please accept my sincere apologies if you found the staff to be less than our usually friendly and helpful standard. You are correct that check in time is from 2pm and where possible we are always happy to offer an early check in to allow our guests to enjoy their break sooner, unfortunately as this was a busy day due to the Ladies Oaks day we were unable to offer an earlier check in. I am sorry to read that the keys to your unit were not working at first but am please to read that the remainder of your stay was excellent. We look forward to welcoming you back to the resort soon.

We had a three bedroom apartment with spa bath Ensuite on the 8th floor. The apartment was clean & tidy with modern decor & facilities. We had two balconies & plenty of space. The large pool & spa area was great with no time lock outs. Only down fall was no bar facilities for the pool

After being told the complex had been recently renovated, I had reasonably high expectations. The room was still fairly dated but had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. It did seem strange that there was no duvet cover/bed cover (just a top and bottom sheet... We pulled the woolen blanket from the cupboard but wasn't really ideal). Potential guests need to be aware the rooms are not serviced and you need to supply your own toiletries etc (3/4 roll toilet paper wasn't really going to cut it for 7 nights!). The Thai Restaurant downstairs is definitely one to pass on, I wish we had read the reviews prior to a horror experience!

Dear Melissa L

Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay with us. It is great to read that you found your unit to be comfortable and had everything you needed. We are currently completing a refurbishment on the resort and we will see outstanding improvements over the coming months. You are correct that our units are fully self contained and therefore we provide a mid stay service for guests staying 8 nights or more. We look forward to welcoming you back to the resort soon.
