Our family of 3 stayed for 4 nights in a deluxe room (upstairs). We were very comfortable. The building is not new by any means, and the bathroom was fairly basic. However it was clean, spacious and well presented. It was also very quiet. There was a lounge area outside our room, which was shared with other guests. This would be great for families travelling together. It looks as though there is one lounge room per 4 rooms on the upstairs level.
We took a package which included a small car. It was just big enough for the 3 of us, but if you were a bigger family I would suggest discussing car size when booking, just to make sure. Once we had snorkelling gear, wetsuits, an esky and our day packs in there, there would have been no room for a 4th person! The car also has a 100km per day limit which is pretty difficult to stick to. You need to expect a surcharge for extra kilometres used.
This hotel, being 5km out of town, and in a relatively unattractive building, has endeavoured to set itself apart on packaging and service. I think they have done this very well. The free airport pickup alone saves you a lot of money. The staff were all lovely and very helpful, particularly Robbie and Nadia. We were given fresh beach towels each day, and offered extra towels too. We also found the wi - fi in the room very useful. It was a bit cold when we were there, but the BBQ area certainly looked very appealing and was spotless. (Huge modern BBQ with nice tables and chairs - like an outdoor restaurant)
The Seabreeze only uses selected whale shark tours; ones that they have checked out and feel are of a high standard. This took the guess work out of choosing a whale shark operator. (We went with Kings).
All in all, given that accommodation is expensive in Exmouth, the Seabreeze package was a good choice which I am happy to recommend.
