“Idyllic retreat with excellent diving/kiting/snorkelling opportunities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2010

Calling this hotel a 'Lodge' suggests a basic level of accommodation but this is far from the truth. The Breakers is a well run smallish 4 star hotel where every member of staff is concerned that your stay is the best that it can be. It is a recently opened hotel on a large private estate of several large stylish hotels, a golf course and spa. It is quite isolated and ideal for 'get away from it all' holidays but not suited to those seeking retail therapy, markets or late night life.
The hotel attracts a predominantly German clientele but English is widely spoken and in fact, most of the films shown on the open-air roof terrace in the evenings are in english with german sub-titles.
Practically everyone staying at the hotel is either a diver or a kiter. This means that most people want a reasonable bed time so as to maximise their sporting opportunities during the day. Consequently, there is no late night bar action or loud, late parties. A point to note is that this is not an ideal hotel for people with young families - a great selling point if you don't want to be listening to other people's children whist you're relaxing by the pool or on the beach. The much larger Sheraton next door is better suited to families.
The chefs and kitchen staff worked particularly hard to produce varied, high quality, delicious meals which followed a different theme each evening. The hotel & kite house general manager was keen to speak with the guests at dinner so as to ensure that they were satisfied with what the hotel, dive school and kite house were offering.
Altogether, a superb 2 week stay that we are keen to repeat.
