We stayed here for two very enjoyable nights but the Eco Beach struggles to find an identity for itself.

The pre-authorisation is a refundable deposit and acts like... More

I stayed at Eco beach in January and I really couldn't fault it. The staff were lovely and very helpful to my requests. As I was traveling alone Sharon was more than helpful at organising tours and making suggestions of things to do during my stay. My room was clean and comfortable and I felt safe staying there on my... More

On arrival the staff were very friendly and helpful. We found our studio room to be very clean and comfortable with a generously sized balcony. As the hotel is a short stroll from the town centre it was very easy to access the retaurants, shops and beach. Overall a very enjoyable stay.

It is wonderful to hear that you felt welcome at BreakFree Eco Beach and that you found the room clean and to your liking. There is a bush track to the beach and it sounds like you may have missed a turn off as it is a 5 minute walk and yes you do cross over the disused railway line... More

Very nice and welcoming staff that gave us the rundown on some great tours, organised the activities for us. The hotel itself is modern and clean, the rooms feel like a nice studio and the bedding is comfortable. The pool is very nice to se after spending the day at the beach or shopping to unwind. Only drawback is the... More

Very friendly and efficient staff. Reception allowed an early checkin and facilitated our return journey to the airport. The room was very spacious, clean and had everything necessary for our stay. Equipped with fridge,microwave and crockery. Large, clean communal BBQ area. The pool is small but great for a cool dip. Short walk to beach and shops.

Thank you for bringing your concerns to my attention. The $200 pre-authorisation at check-in is standard procedure, it is communicated at time of booking in the booking terms and conditions and acts as a bond. I apologise that the manhole was loose fititng and disturbed your stay and have organised this to be repaired. My team are usually very pro-active... More
