“Loved the Breakfree Caribbean Resort for our Young Family!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2007

Our family of 2 adults and a 4 and 2 year old really enjoyed our stay at the Breakfree Caribbean. It was very conveniently located at only a block away from the beach, main restaurants as well as Underwater World, bus stops and shops for groceries, all walkable. The rooms were clean and had everything we needed to get started. Wonderful to have a dishwasher and washer and dryer when you are on holiday as well as air conditioning and fans for those hot days. The staff were all very friendly and helpful with ideas, bookings and rental equipment. The pool, spa pools, barbecue area and exercise room were awesome especially for our young family. Overall, we would definitely stay again especially for the difference in price to some of the larger hotels and it was nice to stay somewhere smaller as you didn't feel lost. Our only regret was not staying longer as it took us a few days to get used to the no daylight savings so early to rise with young children.

  • Liked — Location and pools!!
  • Disliked — We didn't stay long enough.
  • Tips/Secrets — Ask for a higher room for the view or request a poolside room for older children. Don't plan a romantic trip around school holidays.

Previous reviews had me prepared for the worst however the resort was very well located just off the main street. The rooms were on the small side but big enough for two adults and two kids. We had a great apartment at ground level next to the pool which the kids loved and I was easily able to keep an eye on them.

Within easy waliking distance to shops, cafes, Underwater world and supermarket.

Staff were very friendly and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Rooms were clean and comfortable.

This was a great place to holiday. The kids loved the apartment. Great kitchen with dishwasher. We stayed for 2 weeks and really enjoyed our stay. Close to shops, restuarants and beach. Great value for money.
New Gym is fantastic. Our apartment had just been upgraded and looked terrific. Friendly staff who looked after our every need.

Would highly recommend to families.

This is a great value apartment block.

If you are looking for cheap-ish accommodation in an excellent location then this is it. If you have some spare cash then go to the Outrigger instead.
We stayed in a 2 bed apartment on the 4th floor which was adequate for a 5 day stay.

The good points of the Breakfree Carribean are the location (2mins from Beach, Shops, Wharf & Surf Club), the reasonable rooms, the rooftop BBQ & spa.
The bad points are the poor air conditioning (to the bedrooms), smallish 2nd bedroom and the pool area can get crowded. There is also a popular pizza/bar downstairs that can get loud at weekends.
The pool is long thin one that is fun for kids but not if you like to do a few laps. The gym is never used

Overall this is suited for a family with small children.

I had read the earlier reviews and was expecting smallish bathrooms and tired decor. Our 2 bedroom suite was great. Big bathroom with corner spa bath. Furnishing was typical cane decor. Very clean and good sized rooms.
Excellent location very central.
My only comment would be to request a third floor apartment with a view of the pool. We had a ground floor one overlooking a side street. Bus stop right across street from main entrance.
Would recommend breakfree to anyone - catered well for families.

We were disappointed with the Caribbean Resort.
The apartment was quite small, no ensuite. We have stayed at other apartments in Noosa and Mooloolaba and they have all been much larger, with ensuites. Also found it quite noisy - the sound of doors banging and people talking echoed quite badly. On the plus side, the apartment was clean and tidy. Close to shops, restaurants. Loved the Surf club.
Would not stay there again.

We had read the previous review and were a bit worried that the unit would be small, but were pleasantly surprised. Our unit was spacious, It had a nice big kitchen and lounge, the bedroom was a good size and the ensuite the toilet area was a little on the small size but we didnt have a problem with it. It was a lovely place to stay everyone was friendly and it was a 1-2 min walk to the shops/cafes etc the restaurant/bar downstairs put on some nice meals also recomend it for anyone just wanting to get away.
