We have been going here annually for the past 8 years and have never been disappointed. Excellent and friendly service, attentive staff, great amenities. The upgrades done since 2010 around the pool area is a definite winner as is the pool service restaurant. One of our favourite holiday spots in South Africa.

We stayed here with family on a holiday to South Africa. Overall the resort was spotlessly clean and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a 2 bed apartment which was a bit disappointing as it was quite small and felt like everything had been done on the cheap side. We appreciate that this will have been... More

The pool area is great for children. Lovely location, just a stone throw from the beach. I must say the stench on the entrance foyer of the resort was indeed not welcoming. We stayed on room 127. If the deco can be updated and the place kept clean it would be a lovely place. There were cob webs on the... More

This is also a place that we have stayed at many times and earlier this year we decided to go back. The new pools, slides and gardening that has taken place makes this place so picturesque and problem the most relaxed spot in Umhlanga. The food was average and on Saturdays when it gets really busy, the orders can take... More

I will never recommend this place. The GM Ian Hume is severely lacking in managerial skills and has zero interest in guest relation. My 2 week stay started with my 1st car being vandalised ( keyed / scrached) on both sides front and back (4 different areas, at different levels and in different directions). My 2nd week ended with my... More

Stayed at Breakers resort last week and found the accommodation of a high standard and clean. The pool area must be the highlight of the resort, with a variety of pools for both children and adults. The entertainers got to know the guests and the person that really stood out for my children was Blessing, his caring charm and charisma... More

Overall Breakers is not bad. It's exactly what you'd expect from the website and price. A big resort-type development. In it's favour is the awesome beach on the doorstep, lots of pools that are great for kids and a fantastic view down a lagoon with no other hotels in sight. Particular credit should also be given to the team who... More

Grew up in Durban, but had never stayed at Breakers. Was better than I had expected. We were in a 2 bed, 6 sleeper. Majestic views of the sea and unit big enough for a family of 5! Ate often in the lounge (tasty and reasonably priced) and had coffee/cake by the pools. Also good. Pools far too cold this... More

Breakers is a resort that caters for all types. From families with little children to the more mature. There is a lap pool located outside as well as a water polo/volleyball pool where they have activities daily. There is a magnificent leisure where you can work on your tan and have poolside service from the restaurant's. There is a gym... More

What a beautiful resort, the facilities are top class. The garden and pool area is beautifully laid out and it is such a pleasure to sit and soak up the sun. Our Unit was situated on the 6th floor which gave us a wonderful view of the ocean. The restaurant is presently being renovated and will be ready by December... More
