We stayed for 3 nights which was way too short. The Resort is clean and tidy and our room was modern and spacious. We booked a package which included car, whale shark dive and breakfast. The whale shark dive was FABULOUS with 3 Islands and everying else was beautifully organised. I would probably not include breakfast next time beause the kitchen in the room was excellent and you can buy all your stuff in Exmouth at Aldi and have the same breakfast. If hiring a car get a 4 wheel drive and spend more time there exploring the different beaches in the National Park (Ningaloo) and also the hinterland. We liked the fact that the resort is out of town and it has an interesting past. Well done Sea Breeze and thanks :)

Thank you for your informative review and pointing out that the packages we do provide are the best value in Exmouth and working fine! I agree, 3 days are nowhere near enough to explore all the things Exmouth and Ningaloo Reef have to offer, especially not when you want to go bush and explore the 4wd only land! I disagree with you here in regards to the 4wd. In almost 100% of all our bookings the small Getz are more then enough for 2 people or a small family to get around. The price difference is massive between a small car and a big 4wd, which you will need, An all wheel drive SUV does not do it, believe me, I tried it. I agree with the Breakfast if you are not a coffee fan. But still you could provide your own BF ( sorry it is IGA, we don't have an ALDI sadly ) and purchase a nice Latte, Cappuccino or Espresso. We pride ourselves on our coffee, which we need for the right start into the day! ;-))) We also appreciate your view on our location and history. It is a different and unique place and we hope to welcome you soon for much longer! Thx again

7 nights here due to a cracked kneecap, and as an apartment, the Sea Breeze is OK. It is 5 km out of town, a tiny and very cold pool, and the inroom 'kitchen' is barely adequate.
The fridge has no freezer and although 'tall' is small, so space was limited.
The a/c is non contollable (except for fan speed) and is very noisy, and is cooling only - we needed heat - so there wasn't any!!!
We have definitely had worse rooms/apartments, but this wasn't one of the goodies either.

Thank you for your review, but I am sorry that I don;t get what you are complaining about. You booked a standard studio and negotiated a $140/ night! We do not have apartments only studios. Difference is that a studio combines cooking facilities and bedroom in one. An apartment has 2 separate rooms it is a 1 bedroom apartment or 3 rooms in a 2 bedroom apartment! If you don;t turn the Air Con on then it is actually quite warm! That is Exmouth and that is why people come here in winter. Now it is also funny that we have heaters and you could have asked at reception and I am sure Nadine would have been more than happy to give you one. It is also interesting that you never mentioned anything to the staff or management during your stay! The freezer issue has been a hard one as nice fishermen left their bait, fish and prawns in it during a test phase. We have the common freezer at the BBQ for people to keep their Ice cream or freeze their freezer packs for the Esky the next day. If a 290l fridge is too small then I am sorry Mate, but that is all we could fit in. I think your stay would have been made better and more enjoyable if you would have voiced your concerns with Nadine, then simply put up with it and then write these comments. One thing for sure, I can;t change anything any more to make your stay nicer.
Maybe next time if you want and apartment, book one.
Kind regards
Axel

Really enjoyed our stay at the Sea Breeze Resort. The Resort itself is in unusual surroundings (the naval base) which made it that little bit different. The rooms were spacious, clean and reasonably modern. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and went out of their way to make sure that we enjoyed our stay. We booked under one of the Whale Shark packages - awesome. Highly recommend.

My first time back to the Sea Breeze in over 5 years, and was I glad to be back! My partner and I stayed for a beautiful 6 Nights!! we met some of the new crew including the new manager "Nadine" who is such a compliment to the Resort her fresh and friendly approach and such willingness to help is a true asset! the rooms were lovely and clean and very comfortable. we also found out many interesting facts about the naval base during our stay! We will definitely be back, for more whale sharking and enjoyable days sitting on the beach at Turquoise Bay. Exmouth really is such a beautiful place!! :) Thank you Sea Breeze for sharing this with us!

Room Tip: The Deluxe suites are lovely, perfect for travelling couples! :)

Ningaloo Reef is a wonderful place.Our visit was an enormous success as a consequence of the assistance of Axel and his staff at Ningaloo Sea Breeze Resort. We followed exactly what they suggested and it was perfect. I have never encountered such an excellent standard of service, anywhere. We were very comfortable at the resort. It was perfect for the location.

Room Tip: Upstairs probably best

Thank you for sharing your Whale Shark Package experience with other travelers! You summed it up perfectly! Call us and develop your holiday with us and listen to our advise and you will have a great time! Take your luck into your own hand and ........ I have learned a thing or two in the 15 years in the Industry in Exmouth. My name is on the line if and I have worked hard and long to get the knowledge I have, and trained our staff! All of them are well experienced and have done most of the tours and highlights themselves. Ningaloo is not an easy place to travel to, or to enjoy without good advise. We are committed to make your stay as enjoyable as possible! Thank you and I hope you will spread the word in and around Sydney what a great hidden treasure there is on the West Coast! ;-))) Cya Axel

Axel, Nadine & team are absolutely marvelous. Our rooms are better than expected (more impressive than photos). Not only did they make our 3 day trip a breeze (by organizing car rental & whale shark tour for us), they also offered helpful local advice on things to do / places to go when one of the days ended up stormy and our manta ray tour was cancelled. Most commendable is they are really flexible! We were supposed to check out at 10am but as our flight was 3pm, they extended our check out time to 1pm without charges! So ask them for anything and I'm sure they'll say yes! :D Our room was leaking at night during the storm but they cleaned and dried it up the next day before we came back from our snorkeling trip. Bring your own hair dryer if you're fussy as theirs weren't powerful enough.

Haha!! ;-))) Thx for the great comment! No good bringing your own Hairdryer! We have some you can get from reception! The reason is that we are on American 110V 60Hz power! The special wired Power Points in the bathrooms are on that power and I agree are not blowing you away! ;-))
I have been 4 weeks overseas and have not seen the new paint job in the rooms but the pictures I have seen look great! So the rooms are actually even better then when we have seen them! Need to get new pics done ASAP. Thx for pointing out that the Whale Shark Packages work a treat and that our crew is ok, no we do go that extra bit to make your stay enjoyable! Cya back soon! Axel

super happy and helpful staff,one even came on the whale shark trip with us courtesy of kings ningaloo reef tours.Great hotel/whale shark package deal and the advantage of the resort being 5km from exmouth center was it was closer to the boat ramp and turqoise bay beach which is just amazing for the snorkelling.Hotel was clean and well serviced (although we forgot to mention maybe it was time to change a very tired mattress),it would have made a big difference.Not much to compare this resort with in exmouth itself which is quite a sleepy place.Overall our best part of the coast from perth to exmouth which was made incredibly memorable due to the bucket list whale shark snorkelling.Ask the staff anything and they will do there best to help you.Well done and thanks from karen and martin from adelaide
