The Breakfree resort is situated in a beautiful spot on the Fraser Coast. The rooms are very dated and sparsely decorated with only the very basics. Only a few units have air conditioners. They are however generally clean. It would be a great spot to stay for a economical short family holiday, however, having travelled extensively all over the world,... More

Asked to book 5 apartments close to each other, got them either end of a very large complex! So called penthouse was a joke, yes it had a barbecue but it was locked up in a cupboard. Rooms were dusty and old and haven't been updated since the 1990's. Furniture was lacking in style and class and didn't match at... More

Was a bit worried about staying here after reading some other reviews, however our experience here was very good. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment overlooking the marina. The apartment was very nice - new bathrooms and kitchen. Large flat screen tv and blue ray in lounge. Very clean too. Outside, the complex is perhaps showing its age, but... More

This place is a joke the room was dirty the bath/shower leaked into the kitchen and there was a full size glass window in the shower room that looked on to the lounge so everyone could see you getting washed. The bedroom was so dirty and dusty I had to buy hay fever tablets. There where a couple of days... More

We were lucky enough to score a 'special deal' via email. Had a great spot on the water, corner unit that was very clean. Beds are really comfy according to our teenagers! Some noise from the locals fishing off the rocks outside our room at 0530 hrs. Further advice from teenagers: update your technology whatever that means. Offer bikes/paddleboards/fishing rods...

Handy to the boat harbour where there were restaurants and shops. Is an older resort (no wi-fi), but was very clean and comfortable. 2 tennis courts, 2 pools (lap pool was... More
