“Lovely hotel with a fantastic location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

This hotel was clean , in a great location with an amazing view and staff were very helpful, happy and friendly. Self contained unit so everything we needed was on hand. Staff helped with passes to theme passes which was quick and convenient. A very enjoyable week.

We went to Queensland to celebrate my husbands birthday with family members. We lucky to get two units side by side. Unit 52 was a two bedroom and 53 a one bedroom. Just what we needed to suit our group. My family loved both units, both very well kept and great views of the beach and the hinterlands.
The pool and access to the beach is fantastic
The staff especially Lyn at reception were great, could not do enough to help us enjoy this great holiday.
We will definitely come back again

Room Tip: Either of units 52 or 53 were great, clean and modern. Great views of the ocean and hinterlands.

For years we have stayed in the heart of surfers for our short breaks to the Gold Coast. What a find the Breakers was. From initial contact with Lyn the property manager to the check out this place was a unexpected joy. We stayed for three nights Friday to Monday.

The location was ideal, away from the bustle of surfers itself but close enough for you to enjoy it. Position amazing, right on the beach. Apartment was modern and very clean, cleaning then some five star 'apartment hotels' I have stayed in on the Gold Coast. Facilities and garden beautifully kept - heated pool was great. Service and friendliness of Lyn - was of a high level.
We will stay again hopefully in apartment 23 - so enjoyable.

This is my second only review on this site and I have been using Tripadvisor for over five years, but I just had to write about this place.

Thanks for your lovely words and more so for taking the time to place your review. I have to agree with you that apartment 23 is a credit to the owners and it does make our job so much easier with fabulous presentation. I will pass your comments on to our cleaners as this also makes our job easier as they too, take pride in the presentation and cleanliness for our guests.
Really glad you did find us and we look forward to your next visit!

We recently enjoyed a short stay at the Breakers. The apartments are right on the beach and only a short walk from the Broadwater mall. Our apartment was very clean, tidy and had everything we needed to make our stay an enjoyable one. The vistas over the beach & ocean were simply breathtaking. We found the staff extremely friendly and helpful & the free wifi was a bonus. We will definitely stay again.

Glad you enjoyed your time here with us and for placing your lovely review. Just a small correction - it should have been the Broadbeach Mall that you mentioned as the Broadwater is further north of us. Just thought this would be beneficial to other readers location wise. Look forward to your next visit.

A lovely apartment, overlooking the beach. I though we were booked into a hotel in Surfers from the address, but it's a good 10 minute power walk to the centre of Surfers.

The apartment itself was fine, but for a 'superior' room, it was dated. I think that only 3/4 of a roll of toilet roll is not really appropriate for 3 days stay... and with no reception over Easter, not ideal.

Would I recommend to come again, probably not, location wasn't ideal, but if you are looking for a holiday overlooking the sea, then you can't get much closer.

Agreed the view of the beach is second to none as we are right on it!! Any closer and you would be in the ocean. Certainly our address is Surfers Paradise, however, we do find our guests love the fact that we are close enough to the centre of Surfers yet far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet.
I am unsure of the actual apartment you stayed in so my only comment would be that everyone does have individual tastes and ideas as do the owners, as all apartments are individually owned and furnished to their liking. I cannot comment on the amount of toilet paper as the norm is for a new roll to be put in for each arrival and then you would need to replenish this when it is finished.
I am confused at your comment re no reception over Easter as I was actually working over Easter myself and was in the office every day.

We are just home from having spent five nights at the Breakers, and we can't wait to go back again! I honestly cannot understand how anyone can review this place poorly, as everything we experienced - from customer service, cleanliness, value for money - was outstanding.
We booked a 2 bedroom superior apartment online in advance, so got a great deal by booking and paying in advance. Check in was a breeze, and Lyn at reception was so helpful, explaining where everything in the area was, and even giving our two boys a lollipop each :-)
When we entered our apartment on level 10, we were blown away. The views were amazing! From every bedroom and living space, there was a gorgeous view of the beach and ocean. And the apartment was lovely - well cared for, modern and spotless. Full laundry, kitchen, air-con, comfy beds and couches. A home away from home.
The Breakers is situated half way between Surfers and Broadbeach, and is an easy 20 minutes walk along the beach to either destination. It's also right on the beach with its own secure entry. The pool overlooks the beach (perfectly clean and moderately heated), and there are beachfront barbecues and seating if you want to cook outside.
All in all, I cannot recommend this place highly enough. And I will be booking again soon!

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience here at The Breakers at such great length. Really happy that you did enjoy your apartment - it is certainly very rewarding to get the great feedback that you have given. I am sure you are aware that all the apartments are individually owned and the apartment you were in is the pride and joy of its owners and as much as they love to enjoy it themselves, they also love our guests to experience that very same feeling - as you say - "a home away from home".

Look forward to your return........ soon!
