Breakers Resort
Ranked #15 of 19 Hotels in Umhlanga Rocks
Reviewed 4 May 2014

The weather was perfect and the accommodation was equally as good. We only had a short stay but really this resort has everything you could ask for, beautiful views, swimming pools, close to the beach, short drive to the town centre, where there is a buzzing night life and an enormous number of restaurants to choose from.

Breakers must be one of the friendliest, most perfectly situated, cleanest resorts in the country. We spend all our holidays at the Breakers and don't even think of another resort. The staff are friendly, the facilities are well maintained and the pool area is amazing. For any family with children, this is the place to be.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms ground floor, walking out onto the lawns

Just returned from my first visit to Breakers Resort. I was more than satisfied with the resort and would recommend this place to anyone! The staff were friendly, the gardens absolutely beautiful and the accommodation very neat & clean. My kids had a ball on the waterslides. I cannot wait for my next visit!

Room Tip: All rooms are sea facing, so no need to choose a good room. They are all good!

I love Breakers because the resort is very clean and the location has all the convenience it can offer. I come to breakers every 2 years. From Australia. Excellent security and the staff are very friendly.

Room Tip: The bikes from level 8 was excellent.

We have been going here annually for the past 8 years and have never been disappointed. Excellent and friendly service, attentive staff, great amenities. The upgrades done since 2010 around the pool area is a definite winner as is the pool service restaurant. One of our favourite holiday spots in South Africa.

Room Tip: Try not to book during the Matric vac as it tends to get a little noisy. Also the higher floors give...

We stayed here with family on a holiday to South Africa. Overall the resort was spotlessly clean and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a 2 bed apartment which was a bit disappointing as it was quite small and felt like everything had been done on the cheap side. We appreciate that this will have been done to the owners taste.
The grounds were very pretty and had a really nice pool. I would definitely stay again but would probably go for a studio flat or 1 bed as they seemed to be a lot bigger.
Wifi was available in the main lounge area of the complex, but would have liked it in our apartment.
Generally, We did have a good time here and would go back.

The pool area is great for children. Lovely location, just a stone throw from the beach. I must say the stench on the entrance foyer of the resort was indeed not welcoming. We stayed on room 127. If the deco can be updated and the place kept clean it would be a lovely place. There were cob webs on the ceiling and on almost every hidden space. We spent three nights there and never unpacked our luggage because even the cupboards were not clean. The pool area of the resort was certainly the only highlight of our stay there.
