Great amenities, many outdoor swimming pools and outdoor playing areas for kids young and older. Beautifully maintained gardens. Comfortable, cozy lounge and restaurant on the premises. Comfortable bed and couch. Flat screen TV with some dsTV channels. Secure parking, some underground... More

The Breakers Resort has been in Umhlanga for a long time but the communal areas are lovely and have been refurbished to a very good, modern and comfortable standard. The pools are lovely as are all the outside areas too. For this reason the hotel is excellent value for money in comparison to the other surrounding accommodations. Service was hit... More

Breakers offers a reasonably priced family vacation. The rooms are dated and it is definitely a mid-3 star property, but the location and the beach more than make up for it. Our kids loved playing on the beach and in the pools. It was very good value for money.

Breakers Resort is ideally situated close to the ocean, making for a short walk to the beach. The rooms were very nice and comfortable. The downsides were the parking as there was only a single Lane to get both in and out of the uncovered parking which made it especially difficult when someone arrived and left at the same time...

Extremely unpleasant stay. Room was musty, single beds not available, when requested a dirty single mattress was provided and I was told to use it on the floor. Bathroom very dated. Staff are rude, not helpful. Found nothing wrong about telling me to sleep on the floor. Not very clean. Disappointed.

Very tranquil setting. Very close to beach and good boardwalk. A number of activities arranged at resort. Ideal for families. Full self-catering but restaurant on site, or many others close by. Third and Fourth floor have balconies. Good sized rooms and bathrooms. Kitchen well equipped.

It looks amazing from the outside but it is a sh*it hole! The place smells so bad, waitresses are a horrible lot. Although renovations are ongoing, it is in a very sorry state, the rooms needs a miracle! But they have hot water showers..swimming pool is well located but its too shallow and small. Very amazing salads though....

Although we don't own timeshare at the resort, we tend to return here year after year. It is always consistent. The newly revamped entrance and reception area is outstanding. It now looks like an upper class resort. The gardens, swimming pools and public areas are all excellent. Clean, convenient and well managed. Activities for both kids and families during the... More

This popular FAMILY resort now offers weddings and functions. July school holidays we came down with 3 kids for a relaxing week. Just got here. First night and the blaring music which started at 7pm kept us all awake until midnight. BE WARNED.
