“very good place for divers and kite surfers”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

if you don't dive or kite surf, don't go there ! except if you just want to relax... but there is no night life in this hotel
food is ok and service is very nice
the only probleme is the diving center (orca dive) price !!! completely mad !! just double of the average of the dive centers around.
A good tip, if you plan to stay a week, book at Dune dive center at Safaga (on line) for half price and for 10 €/day they'll come to pick you up and take back at the breakers...
good place to stay on your own, easy to meet people there, mostly germans...

Room Tip: ask for the room on the reef side

Our family holiday here was perfect! Our boys snorkelled on the easy to get to house reef and did a couple of intro dives with a dive instructor, all of whom are so helpful. All the staff here are friendly and amazingly generous with their service. Great food and they even catered especially for our gluten & dairy free son's dietary needs whenever they could. (Advise taking any home ingredients like gluten-free pasta & flour etc. and they will cook with it for you).
The hotel's ambiance is SO relaxing. Comfy banana bean bags and hammocks & loungers at the bar. The beach and pool are spotless and clean. I can find nothing to complain about. Even the doctor was brilliant when I was sick. I should warn you about the what seems to be the inevitable Egyptian belly (D&V), but drugs offered were really fast acting for all of us.

We stayed the 2nd time at The Breakers. It"s a hotel where everything is perfect. It"s a small hotel, there are not so many peope, the rooms are comfortable, the bathroom big, the food excellent.
You can dive and snorkel and see all variaties of fish. The riff is not damaged and it`s not crowded. The kite beach is not far away, there is a shuttle to go there.There is no animation for children, so it`s very quiet there. There is no sandy beach but that not necessary when you want to have a good riff. There are no shops and o people who come to sell you things.
It`s a hotel for recreation not for people who want to have animation.

Room Tip: All rooms are good

Very friendly and clean hotel. The staff really makes you feel welcome and at home.
The food is delicious and the breakfast has something for everyone.

Only downside is the prices of the drinks. The prices went up during our stay for wine and beer.

How come this is a holiday hotel?! It's just for diving and some other water sports, the pool is only one and very very small. We left a note that we'll arrive at 12:00 p.m but no, we had to take it at 3:00 p.m. We did take a tour in a room, which was terrible so, we just went to the Sheraton Soma Bay, it's just the best. We did not stand even to stay a minute in this hotel.

Dear guest,

Thank you very much for your evaluation on Tripadvisor. We are very sorry, that you did not like our hotel. In Soma Bay there are different hotel- and price concepts, which cannot be compared. The Sheraton hotel can offer different services than the Breakers. The Breakers focuses on sport and lifestyle. Also service orientation is very important to us. Our goal is to create a relaxed atmosphere and we regret, that you could not feel it.

Best regards
The Breakers-Team
