My wife and I stayed at Breakas for four nights in early January 2012. Upon arriving, we were greeted with leis and a fruity drink before staff walked us (and our heavy suitcases) to our garden fare (# 52).
We were instantly impressed with our fare. Sure, we saw the pictures online, but they didn't really show how cute the place was. Our only complaints were the fare did not really get much cooler at night (the sea breezes the website mentions did not reach us) and the refrigerator did not get all that cold. If, like me, you need it cooler at night to sleep well, you might be better off to spend the extra money and get a fare near the water - particularly in December and January when it's hot and humid.
The resort itself is beautiful with the many flowering trees and plants. It's quite obvious that the staff care for for the resort. We never ordered off the restaurant menu for regular food, but we did partake in the Melanesian and Seafood feasts. Both were pretty good for buffet-type food, but the atmosphere of having dinner on or near the beach and the native dancers made the money worthwhile. The breakfast buffet (which was included in our rate) did not change while we were there, but we were happy with the choices available (coffee, fruit, juice, and pancakes worked for us). The bar also makes beautiful drinks. One could easily stay at the resort without leaving, but I would recommend taking a bus into town and trying out some of the local restaurants (L'Houstelet, Baywatch, and and Jill's Cafe were all good). Although we generally had good luck with the buses, there was one episode where we felt we were getting scammed - ask the concierge what your trip should cost so you know.
We would definitely consider staying at Breakas again although we would probably stay in the cooler months.
