“Great location, very relaxing & friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014

We stayed for 7 nights (Mum ,Dad and 16 year old Son). The General Manager set the tone for our fantastic stay from the moment we arrived.The staff were fantastic, the food was fantastic and everything was priced at a reasonable rate. For a truly relaxing and enjoyable break that is not a "Hotel Farm Resort" then Breakas will be the best decision you could make for Vanuatu. A point of difference with relaxed efficiency and high standards is the best way to describe this property. The tour desk did a wonderful job and Frita was very helpful with pointing us in the right direction.

Room Tip: Beach front Fare was a good spot.

Dear Lesley A,

thank you for the wonderful review and so glad you had a relaxed holiday with us.

As you say, we are definitely not the usual "Hotel Farm" resort. We love our location on the beach as do most of our guests, nothing beats whitesand beach on holidays in the tropics.

Thanks also for the great comments about the restaurant and dining. We feel the prices are very very good as well and strive to get the perfect meal from kitchen to plate. We have 5 chefs at the resort and always trying a few different experiment using the fresh local produce which is why we have some excellent off main menu specials at night.

We hope to see you back again soon.

This hotel has a beautiful beach front location and is easily accessible to town and on the local bus route. The pool, breakfast and bar were great.

The rooms do not have air conditioning and while we were aware of this on booking, the ocean breeze did not provide as much relief as we anticipated from reading the other Trip Advisor reviews. There is an open air bathroom in the majority of rooms (covered roof but an exposed gap). While private, all sorts of critters will find their way into your bathroom and sometimes room as a result.

Overall a descent stay but as with most places in Vanuatu, the value for money is less then many other holiday destinations. Vanuatu is as expensive (if not more) then many Australian cities.

Dear FoodCeej,

thanks for the review and glad you liked our location on the beach.

Our fares are designed to capture in the breezes from the ocean and achieve an overall consistent temperature which we think we do. Occasionally sometimes people find it a little cold and others a little warm.

We think Vanuatu is very good value for money when compared to most other South Pacific destinations. It will always be hard to compete with some places in Australia as power is 4 times more expensive here, most products are imported and we have a small population.

Vanuatu will never be, nor want to be a Bali/Indonesia style destination where they get 11 m visitors a year but with all the issues that go with it.

We have our point of difference in our genuinely friendly people and diverse culture in Vanuatu and its 83 islands.

We do hope you come back to see a little more of our little country, it is amazing what you see when you get off the beaten track here :-)

Thanks again for the review, it is very much appreciated.

In December, we experienced staying at Breakas-we loved it so much that seven months later,we stayed there again.The new general manager was generous and always willing to listen to you.The tourist manager handled all enquiries with proficiency and a friendly manner.The bar staff were incredibly entertaining and provided many laughs along with bands,performers and local village experiences to never forget.My only criticism is that it was very full -December was less crowded.Nevertheless, we plan on going back.

Dear Hayley_McNew,

thanks so much for visiting us again so soon and it was great to have you.

July and August are our two busiest months of the year as our guests escape the cooler climate and we generally completely full these two months, certainly tests things like ensuring fast restaurant service and even have had the very occasional room overbooked by enthusiastic travel agents :-) However in walking around down all I have seen is happy faces and lots of nice words which is always so nice for us all to see here.

We have a nice family team at Breakas and genuinely want to ensure every guests goes home relaxed and experienced a bit of our tropical paradise we call home, after all thats the point of a tropical holiday!

We do hope you make visiting Breakas a regular occurrence.

Until next time

We do pride ourselves on providing the best service we can. Things do not always go perfectly right in the tropics but if there is an issue we guarantee to do our best to put it right quickly.

Thanks for the wonderful review and we hope to see them back again for an anniversary at some stage in the future :-)

We had our first day here yesterday and dinner at Breakas. It was great food and staff couldn't be friendlier (always smiling). We asked best place to get pawpaw and next thing were given a whole pawpaw cut ready to go! We were going to catch bus home but a staff member was driving by and offered us free lift back to Nasama Resort where we were staying. Fantastic evening all up and beautiful setting. We'll be spending some more evenings here!

Dear nvpatter,

thank you so much for dining with us on your first night in Vanuatu. We get many guests from other resorts coming to dine with us, especially for our famous beachside dining which is unique in Port Vila.

We have a extra focus on providing fresh locally grown produce, usually picked, caught or provided to the resort on the day. Our Chefs pride themselves on the evening meal specials and the varying menus they provide from their kitchen.

I have passed on your wonderful comments to them.

Tropical regards

Highly recommend Breakas-great position; easy access to town but far enough out of town to be quiet, peaceful and private. easy access to other attractions- 1 of 800 buses on the island always passing the gate and willing to take you anywhere you want to go. clean, comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful staff. They even put on a decent earthquake for us :). We enjoyed the 'adults only' aspect of the resort. We stayed in an ocean view room for the first week and a garden room for the last 4 nights. Which is best? Depends on what you like. We particularly like being able to see the ocean at any time but the garden room was lovely, too. We even had some local visitors-local cat sleeping on top of the wardrobe and a good size crab greeted us in the bathroom-all part of the magic of the place. I believe the management are trying to improve the restaurant and meals so that eating at Breakas is as good or better than anywhere else on the island. Well done to all because you are definitely there. I especially appreciated the willingness of the staff to accommodate my special dietary requirements as much as they could. we would definitely stay at Breakas again should we be lucky enough to return to beautiful Vanuatu.

Room Tip: choose a room away from the main area of the resort and the bar if you don't like people walking...

Dear swal0438,

wow thanks for the amazing review. It sounds like you had a great time so big tick in our "goal achieved" box to ensure you had a great " feet in the sand" bit of R&R.

Our Tropical Fares are very well received, especially the open plan bathrooms. You do get the tropical bit of wildlife sharing the bathroom on the odd occasion and glad you didnt mind :-)

You are correct in that for the last 12 months with our new chefs and management team that there is a special focus on providing the very best restaurant experience.

We have added too or renovated much of the resort as discretely as we could over the previous 12 months and look out for more improvements for ours guests in the coming 12 months. We even have another 15 hammocks being installed next week in the garden fare areas, what better way to enjoy that cocktail or three than swaying amongst the palm trees.

Thanks again for the great feedback which have passed onto the team.

Please come back and see us again soon

My partner and I stayed at Breakas Beach Resort for 10 relaxing days in a Beachfront Bure. The food was absolutely delicious and the staff were very welcoming and happy to assist us. We would like to especially thank Florah, Rebecca, Melibu and Mantai, for making our holiday relaxing. Also a big thank you to Frida for organizing our tours for us. There is lots to do at Breakas such as snorkeling, having a massage, going for a village walk,intro to scuba diving in the pool, relaxing on a hammock or a beach chair and most importantly eating and drinking. Drinks were absolutely fantastic they were reasonably priced and they had everything you could want from local beers to mock-tails, cocktails and spirits. It was very easy to get a bus from Breakas into town which takes about 10 mins and is a really fun experience. The Beachfront Bure was fantastic, you get your own hammock and beach front chairs out the front as well as a small undercover area where you can have a drink and gaze at the beautiful ocean. The outdoor shower was beautiful and very romantic. The room was very nicely decorated and had everything you could need a small bar fridge, tea & coffee making facilities, day bed, a comfortable bed, mosquito net, fan, desk and safe. You could have your room made up every day if you wanted. Beach towels were available from the front desk for swimming or laying on the beach. Everything was perfect and was the perfect setting for a relaxing holiday. Thank you Breakas.
