“Retirement Holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

A fantastic way to spend a few nights away from the hubbub of NZ life. A great resort with friendly staff, to go with the fact that this was a place that was relaxing,no children no hassles and accessible to some lovely sites around the coast. Our room serviced clean,tidy and airy. Management on site daily, a tireless Issac and an ever watchful Frita to make sure that everyone was catered for. Dining on the beach a treat, nightly entertainment. Thank you Breakas for a lovely retirement holiday.

Our first time in Vanuatu and very pleased we stayed at Breakas. From the first day the welcome with a fruit cocktail and introduction by Frita started our 7 days at Breakas with the friendly approach from the General Manager as well as all staff. We stayed in a garden Fare which was clean and the outdoor shower a real treat, like having a shower under the stars. Food or cocktails delivered any where in the resort. With a no children policy and not many rules made our time here rely relaxing. Many thanks to all the staff that made our stay one that we will remember.

My wife and I chose Breakas for our 10 day stay in Vanuatu after returning to the island for the first time in 7 years.

Everything for us at Breakas was just about perfect and it seemed that way for just about every other guest we spoke to as well, "just so relaxing" was the continual theme we heard.

Highlights for us were the caring staff they have at the resort, Frita, David, Mantai, Roy whom I think was the Assistant Manager,plus of course Pam, the Manager, the lovely girls who cleaned our room for us and left picked flowers on the bed every so often and was always smiling and happy. It is very obvious all the staff at Breakas love their jobs, it shows in how they treated us like family.

The restaurant and meals were superb, fresh and tasty and I must mention the seafood platter on Saturday nights, wow, that was a struggle to eat it all as there was so much. We tried the daily menu specials several times to vary it as well. The dining on the beach ( book early in the day for this as its very popular and we missed out twice) was also very memorable. Sitting a few metres from the ocean, live music in the background with oil torches for light was an unexpected pleasure. From what we gathered in the couple of times we dined out of the resort and past experience from previous visits to Vanuatu, the location on the beach with sand is rare which sounds strange on a tropical island but we didn't find it anywhere else around Port Vila.

Our garden room were very comfortable, the outdoor shower ( you can look up and see coconut trees) was a real treat, beds super comfortable and huge. No TV or Phone was perfect for us. We did catch a bit of sport in the TV hut on the beach but didn't miss it at all to be honest. We worked out that we could practically walk the entire resort with our feet in the sand if we wanted so it was bare feet or jandals most days for us.

Recommended tours we did were the Helicopter Tour, The Jungle Zipline ( amazing) and we hired a buggy one day to drive around the island which was a lot fun. We booked them all at the tour desk with Frita who ensured we didn't get taken advantage of or choose a bad tour.

Overall we give Breakas 5 stars. If you are after a super relaxing holiday where you are not just a number, need a good base to see the rest of the island then there isn't much better. We experienced very good value for our money and we think Breakas exceeded our expectations as a 3 star property, the service and restaurant and location really made it for us.

We will definitely be coming back to Breakas next year.

Room Tip: We were in room 28 which was very nice, all fares seem to get the breeze from the ocean and have hig...

I'd read that Breakas had one of the best restaurants in Port Vila in the inflight magazine on the way over... and let me tell you, they were wrong! Breakas IS the best restaurant in Port Vila. And what a hidden gem, a little way out of town, although not too far that you can't easily and cheaply get a cab, and right on its own private beach. We dined on the beach under the stars and sipped amazing cocktails served by really genuinely friendly staff. For dinner we had the eggplant parmigiana and seafood platter. Just delicious and so unexpected from a resort. Well priced, great service. Only disappointing thing was the wine list - not a great selection and mainly cheap kiwi sauv blancs, hence why we stuck to the cocktails!

Dear Pacistraveller,

thank you for the wonderful food review. Especially glad you read the recommendation on the Air Vanuatu Inflight Magazine. We have had many guests to Vanuatu come and dine with us.

Our beachside dining is becoming more and more booked out. Thanks for the lovely compliments on the food.

I have mentioned the wine list ( or your suggestions) to our F&B Manager and he agrees we need to add a few more wines so you will have to come back in 3 weeks and try the new wine list!.

Please visit us again on your next stay to Vanuatu

Tropical regards

Recently stayed for 4 days and had a wonderful time. The room was large with a super comfy bed and awesome outdoor bathroom. It wasn't too warm so didn't matter that there was no air con. Our last few trips have been to Asia so it was a nice change NOT to get hassled. On the flip side at times everyone is a bit too relaxed. Breakfast was basic but nice. Ocean water was super clean but you can't just swoon out due to coral. Overall it my hubby and I had a great time at Breakas.

Came back from staying at Breakas two days ago.
Best resort we have been to: lots to do, friendly staff, great meals and our bungalow was private and clean.
Entertainment every evening, dining on the beach: too may things to mention.
No children, so a lovely quiet place to relax, they even bring you your meals anywhere you choose to sit, so a romantic meal for two on the beach is fantastic.

Dear freedomfortwo,

thank you for the amazing review. It seems like you got to experience a little bit of everything at Breakas.

As much as we all love children at Breakas, isn't it nice just to have those few days child free. We are glad you appreciated this and also our nightly entertainment and beachside dining.

Come and see us again, you were wonderful guests.

Breakas is truely an amazing and awesome resort. From the moment we arrived which was about mid night the staff welcomed us with smiles. We spent our first three nights here in Vanuatu to celebrate a special birthday before moving to another resort that was already booked which is also lovely but so wished we had booked to stay at Breakas the whole time. The resort is beautiful with an amazing infinity blue pool which is viewed as soon as you enter the reception area and from the restaurant, bar & casual lounge areas.

We stayed in a Garden Fare which was gorgeous, the best king sized bed ever, out door shower with the trees canopy overhead & the birds whistling. The resort is full of lovely gardens & trees that define the sand paths through out.

The staff are just gorgeous and always smiling. We met the new General Manager Isaac who is delightful and would always stop for a chat along the way. The tours specialist Fretta who is awesome welcomed all the newcomers the first morning and provided us with all the local information that we required to set us on our adventure into town. We booked a couple of tours through Fretta and every thing was always just right.

We would definately come back to Breakas and bring our three teenagers.

Overall we could not fault this resort at all as everything was just beautiful - location, the staff, food & accommodation.

Keep Smiling !!
