We would like to commend the staff at Break Free Acapulco, our 10 day break was fantastic, my husband and two twenty year old "kids" had a fantastic time your facilities are great, the apartment was awesome with breath-taking views. We found the apartment to be perfectly located, clean and a home away from home, the staff, all of them... More

Our group booked 4 rooms, two of us were on level 6 and the other were on level 12. All of us got beautiful sea views which were breathtaking. The rooms on level 12 seemed more modern than those on the 6th floor, as ours looked like it lacked a lot of love. All 4 rooms were desperate for a... More

We were a group of 26, mostly senior citizens from NZ and stayed 5 nights. Our rooms were spread over level 18 to level 23 and we were accommodated in 2 room apartments. They were spacious, well furnished with million dollar views from the windows! No one had any complaints. Whenever we had queries, (there were many), regarding sightseeing, transport,... More

Apartment unfortunately was old and drab. paint peeling, only had one remote for both bedrooms lights and fans, balcony slider was hard to open and close, long waits for lifts, insufficient parking available. Definitely not on our list of must stays :(

We stayed at the Breakfree Acapulco Resort in October, 2013, in a two bedroom apartment (mid-level) and absolutely loved it.  My husband and I have stayed in many resorts, in many places, and this apartment rated right up there.  It was extremely spacious and clean, with a large living room with a balcony just off it, a dining room, and...

I phoned through directly when I realised I had a couple of days off before Xmas. I spoke with Tahlia and she couldn't have been more helpful. She gave me a great deal and a fab. room on the 11th floor. The view was awesome and as this is not right in the middle of Surfers, not very noisy at... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights in November. The location is fantastic, north life surf club straight across the road for fantastic food and patrolled beach. Close enough to Cavill without being in the middle of the madness. The common areas at Acapulco are a little dated, but the rooms more than make up for it. We... More

I stayed at the Acapulco for my first family holiday a while ago and the visit is still a bright memory. We had a good chance to explore the hotel and its services available as unfortunately the weather wasn't co-operating with us for the week. However, I was very impressed with the appearance of the hotel and the facilities that... More

We have stayed at Breakfree Acapulco for the last 2 years, it is just a short stroll from the heart of Surfers Paradise which means less noise. Our kids absolutely loves the indoor and outdoor heater pools and its opposite the beach. We stay in the higher levels 2 bedroom deluxe room which have magnificent views of the whole Gold... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in October 2013 and I have to say the view was amazing. We were on the 22 floor in a 2 bedroom apartment which was re-furbished with new kitchen and bathroom and lovely furniture. Yes, the motel is older but really for the price, you can't get a better location and we spent most... More
