Second time lucky for us in Australia.
I had to ring up few times to make sure we get one of the refurbished apartments. Unfortunately they still had the old cutlery, the odd plates and glasses, the buggered frying pan. The apartment was reasonably clean, but every now and then it does need a good clean, skirtings, behind the couches, beds and like somebody mentioned in here the air vents from the air conditioning were filthy, caked with dust.
We have little children, touching everything, we are not picky, but we like clean places, it doesn't take tat much! We manage a 400sqm home and never let it go filthy.
Lot's of flies for that time of the year, I guess in the summer will be terrible if they don't spray (again?!).
However the people are very nice, apart from one of the receptionists. They were helpful and very sensitive. The pool is awesome and the BBQ are great entertainment place. We even had some friends over, we had a great time.

Room Tip: Ask for a refurbished room. Ask also for a room with garden view, you'll love it!

Booked 3 night romantic getaway. We stayed in 2 bedroom garden view room. When we arrived we found hairs in the spa.There was no hot water the night we arrived or the following day.There was glass sliding door with no curtain in the living room giving no privacy. The TV in the bedroom didn't work. Went to reception but it was closed.Next day told us everything would be fixed when it wasn't they told us we should be lucky we had a tv in the bedrooms as most rooms don't. We asked for a refund and were denied.We requested to change rooms and were denied.The air vents were disgustingly filthy caked with dust. The air conditioner was excessively noisy but drowned out the street noise. The glassware was dirty. We returned from dinner one night and while waiting for the main entrance door to open a mouse ran straight along it. Don't waste your money staying here.

Recommend this resort. Spent 3 nights away for a well earned holiday early in January. The property is 10 minutes away from from most restaurants, Bullock beach is across the road. You can walk the boardwalk around to Kings beach. Our room was not a first class room, but our view was fantastic, we overlooked the pool, Bulcock beach and had views over too Bribie Island. The unit itself was great, 2 bedroom small kitchen and lounge area. We spent most our time on the balcony which was faboulous, great breeze and views to Bribie island, overlooking the beach. The Breakfree staff were very polite upon checkin and checkout, and the car park space was good. The resort is older, but it is very clean and the unit we stayed in was modern, clean, and very comfortable, no road noise, very very good,.

After looking for accommodation at the last minute for a short stay away, my wife and I again stayed at the Grand Pacific. We got a 1 Br rooftop Boardwalk apartment this time. Last time we got a resort apartment. This is about the 3rd or 4th time we have stayed here.

The location of the Grand Pacific is great...close to Bulcock Beach and a short walk to the main street for cafes, restaurants and small shops. Most things that we needed were within a 10-15 minute walk.

We stayed mid week, which was a little quieter than the weekend when Caloundra has the markets etc.

The room was well appointed with the rooftop spa accessed via a spiral staircase that was no problem for us but could be a challenge for those less mobile. There was a good sized balcony area. The unit had laundry facilities and also small bar fridge and basic kitchenette - small hotplate and microwave. Separate bedroom with TV was good as it allowed us to follow our separate shows if we wanted.

There was no shade or shelter so we waited until late afternoon for the sun to be setting and also the heat to go out of the day. Also the large unit complex overlooked the spa and BBQ area so there is little privacy, again not an issue for us, but might be for others.

There is a large sized pool and spa area for resort guests and visitors.

There was some repair work being done to our apartment and others around ours that resulted in some strong acetone/acetate smells that took a while to dissipate once the aircon was switched on but this didn't detract too much from the first few hours.

There are options for families, couples and I have also stayed here as part of a large conference contingent.

Room Tip: The higher rooms have less pool/spa noise. If you want a rooftop spa apartment with privacy I would...

We have stayed a grand pacific a few times now, each time we have had a great time. The views from the rooms are really nice looking over the water and having the takeway / restaurants at the bottom of the complex you cannot ask for much more for a nice relaxing getaway.

We had a 2 bedroom rooftop booked and I wasn't expecting much due to the very reasonable price. It's one the best places I've ever stayed! The rooms were a great size as were the living areas. The best surprise was the rooftop, it was absolutely HUGE! The spa was lovely, the BBQ was so handy and the view was gorgeous. The apartment was clean and fully self contained. It may not be your thing if you're expecting 5 star accommodation, brand new furniture and a huge TV but it was absolute perfection for my friends and I. I'll definitely be staying here again!

Room Tip: Rooftop all the way!

Came here for my 30th birthday celebrations with a group of friends. Stayed over a long weekend in one of the rooftop 3 bedroom apartments with private hot tub and BBQ on the rooftop terrace. Apartment was large, clean, and inviting with multiple balconies and an ocean view. The price was reasonable, particularly for a long weekend. Other friends stayed in a smaller 3 bedroom apartment and were also impressed. We all enjoyed the pool. All in all, a great place for a getaway - would definitely recommend it!
