The self contained apartment is located on the main road that goes into Byron Bay. We originally had the room that backed into the pool however the main bedroom was facing the main road. We requested to change the room to an upstairs, side room where the main window in the lounge can be opened at night without the traffic... More

Great location, easy walk into Byron Bay. We stayed in a studio room/apartment; the room was clean and had everything we needed. Overall the hotel is good, but beware of the thin walls. We were woken several times on both nights by a crying baby. We could also hear the occupants of the next room conversations.

We needed a break for the weekend and booked into the Break Free Eco Beach for just the Saturday night. Great little place to stay, had a nice balcony room facing the beach and plenty of secure parking underneath. Walk to town, comfy and clean...will re-visit again now we know its there.

We stayed at Eco Beach for 4 days. We had a lovely one bedroom apartment. There was no daily service but there was a great laundry which was free, so towels and personal clothing could be washed and dried. Eco Beach is just a few minutes walk from the centre of Byron Bay. The receptionists were extremely friendly and knowledgeable.... More

We had a one bedroom apartment which was quite spacious and everything we needed was supplied staff were friendly and helpful.We had a front unit so unfortuatly got a lot of traffic noise that would be the only negative, really handy to everything.

We stayed for two nights whilst touring the Byron Bay area. The Breakfree Eco Beach is not the easiest place to locate on arrival in Byron Bay but does provide decent, clean accommodation with well equipped rooms and friendly Reception staff. It is more like a motel in some respects and to be fair there is excellent, secure underground car... More

We stayed here for two very enjoyable nights but the Eco Beach struggles to find an identity for itself. It is not a hotel but had all the facilities (apart from a safe in the room) we needed for a two night stay, it is more than a Motel (secure underground car parking is excellent) and yet sees itself more...
