Lots of things to do only a few minutes away, very well set and amazing views from your room. There are several restaurants and cafes centred near the apartments and also lots of things to do like jet skiing and snorkelling

Where else can you sit on your own private balcony overlooking the sand and ocean with uninterrupted views! There is no other place I know that is so unique! There is no busy road in front like all the other units here. There are 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units. The 2 bedrooms are a little better. There are 2...

We stay at the Great Sandy Straits each time we go to Hervey Bay and always have a wonderful stay. It is very comfortable with great views and amenities. It is within walking distance of places to eat or just have coffee. A great place to stay.

We had a family event in Hervey Bay and stayed here for 7 nights. The accommodation was quite basic, however the apartments are quite roomy. The furniture is quite dated but with 3 kids staying with us that was probably a good thing. The kitchen had all the basics you needed and the 2 pools, Tennis courts and BBQ got...

Was a good relaxing stay it has always been a good experience, tho I prefer the ocean view It would also be good if Wi-fi was available. Notify of upcoming specials from Mantra would also be helpful, as I come over quite often.

Will never book this place again. I tried to change the dates regarding to a horrible weather and I even wanted to pay an extra feee if necessary but every single time I called nobody was willing to help, they basically said that it was the hotel's policy and if I booked on a bad weekend that was my problem....

Have had a lovely week at Breakfree at Hervey Bay. Prime location, peaceful with only the sound of the waves lapping the beach. Our ground floor unit had quality fittings and furniture and was spotless. The Breakfree ground staff were there, but in the background quietly doing their work. Front of house stafff were very pleasant.

Very friendly, helpful staff. Nice outlook, good location. Room very dated not up to standard for a 'resort'. Shower over bath could be a problem for some people. Crockery, cutlery very cheep and mismatched.

the price they are asking to stay at this place is way out of the ball park. 240 dollars for an outdated run down unit. the cost of a room like we were given should be no more then 100 dollars. the front desk isn't even maned after 5pm. it is difficult to communicate with staff if you need to...

Hello Jason Thank you for your review - I believe that our Front Office Manager is in direct communication with you regarding the issues that you've raised. The initial concern seems to be the type of room that you booked (being a 1 bedroom suite, rather than a 1 bedroom apartment). We are pleased, however, that you found our sister...

Very clean, very comfortable. Although there were a couple of minor maintenance issues, they could be overlooked (and we did), we would gladly stay there again. It was just a pity that the week we chose for Hervey Bay was not as sunny and warm as we had hoped.

Boasting safe beaches, pristine waterways, great fishing and boating, along with some of the world's most unique natural attractions, the Fraser Coast is a rare destination.

The resort offers one, two and three bedroom apartments with all room types offering air conditioning, kitchenette or full kitchen facilities, balcony or patio with views, TV and laundry facilities (studios have shared laundry facilities). There is also a three bedroom penthouse with all the same facilities mentioned as well as a spa bath. The one bedroom apartment also has a spa bath. The resort has a range of onsite facilities sure to keep the whole family entertained. There are two pools, a sauna, tennis courts, BBQ area and for the kids a children's play area and a games room.
