We had a lovely trip to Vanuatu, staying at Breakas Beach Resort. A beautiful location only a 10minute bus ride to Post Vila. This was exactly what we wanted a quiet location with nothing to do but swim and relax on the beach. There was plenty to do if that's what you wanted. There was a couple of Cafes within walking distance which were lovely, Three Pigs and Cafe Vila. Highly recommend.
Thank you Travel Online for helping us organise a short break away from home.
Vanuatu is a beautiful island, rich lands and lovely water. Gorgeous waterfalls, good snorkeling, friendly happy people and very safe. This holiday destination is one that depends heavily on having good weather. There is not a lot to do, other than read a book, when weather turns bad. We were fortunate to have 3.5 sunny days of 7 . But the good outweighs the bad so go enjoy.
Breakas was a very nice beach resort, we enjoyed our time hanging out in the bar area of an evening before dinner, and swimming in the pool during the day. Vanuatu has changed a lot since we were last there. No longer is there an abundance of fresh seafood, that has all been fished out by the Chinese Government and sent overseas, however, the Chef at Breakas made some lovely meals. The rooms were always clean and tidy, the resort was also kept the same way. It was easy to get anywhere on the Island from Breakas as the local buses and taxis go past every two minutes. There is also a convenience store across the road. The staff were very friendly and couldn't be more accomodating. I'd maybe give the cocktails a miss as they weren't the best, I think it was the alcohol that was used in them, but overall we can not fault our stay at Breakas.
We had an amazing week at Breakas in Vanuatu on Efate Island. I really can recommend the food that
Paulo prepares with his team and Cindy who looks after the service and is on the ball all the time. Very lucky to have them at Breakas together with all the front of house staff, Bar tenders and housekeeping.
We were totally amazed about the friendliness of the resort staff and also in general all the people on the island.
we self-explored by having a car but next time will take tours and go and see other island.
Not having a TV for a week was actual good.
it was very relaxing holiday.
Location, service and staff all 5 star. Good variety of food options. Evening entertainment was bonus and enjoyable atmosphere.
My wife and I loved our week at Breakas. Room was comfortable, staff were so friendly (special mention to Barbara for her hospitality and Olivia for her excellent cooking demonstration). Front desk very helpful and we really enjoyed eating at the restaurant each night - excellent service and great food by chef Paulo.
Well maintained & clean. Fantastic room. Helpful friendly staff. Great food. Highly recommend
So much about Breakas is 10 out of 10. Location is perfectly situated on a beautiful coral reef that sees you just a couple of steps away from some brilliant snorkeling. Location to town isn't very far, but can be difficult for some of the local busses in returning you to the hotel, especially at night. No air con in your rooms makes summer accommodation a bit steamy, but it is a very small price to pay for a scenic view from most front doors and some sensational scenery overlooking the local beach which provides some brilliant sunsets. Staff are fantastic (as are all the locals on the Island), nothing is too hard and everything is done with a smile. Just be prepared for "Island Time", as a lot of tours and events don't always run on time - but I liked this, as it makes you just sit down and relax and enjoy the place and it's surroundings. Overall we had just the best time in Vanuatu and Breaks was a large part of this super positive experience. Thanks everyone!!
Really enjoyed my stay ay Breakas.
Lack of air conditioning made my stay a bit uncomfortable.
Continental breakfast was not good. Dinners were great! Highly recommend the dinner, best Chef!
Thank you for a great resort with all marina life, great services, lovely staff and a quiet location.
Small advice. We found, the changes in the fees for a few services on the island. Like, hire the bus for the day.
One day the price was different than the second day.
Please print out all the prices for the daily trip and stick them on them.
Overall, the other services were fantastic.
Thank you, we are coming back.
Great stay, wonderful food, excellent cleaning service, friendly staff. We will be back
The staff are amazing and the location right on the beach is beautiful, The rooms are a little dated but having not long come out of lockdown it's understandable why this is so.
Great resort in a fantastic location, staff will go out of their way to help you with whatever you need. Buffet breakfast and pizzas at night were good but the rest of the food was terrible. (Replace the chef) and it's five stars all the way.
Breakas is a great place to stay with friendly staff ready to help in any way. Having the beach/ reef at its doorstep was perfect to swim/ snorkel when the tide was high, otherwise, the pool was a lovely option.
The gardens and surrounds are well maintained daily, with other options to sit under trees away from the main building and pool, if you want more privacy. The huts were perfect and cleaned daily, with natural methods of ventilation using wooden slats, (flywire mesh to keep the mozzies out) and overhead fans. There was NO issue with tropical/high humidity mould as I've seen in other places like Bali. There is no TV in the huts which was fantastic to disengage from technology and just relax, read, sleep, or whatever!
The restaurant was good but did have quality control issues some of the time. Most of the meals were great.
Happy hour at the bar from 5pm was always a winner with buy one cocktail get one free, so by the time dinner came around it was welcomed.
Just one tip concerning your bar/ restaurant tab.....you are better off paying cash at the time of purchase.
Overall, it was a great place to stay, rest, swim or book day tours.
This place is amazing. The staff went beyond their normal duties and were so considerate with my husband’s Alzheimer’s disease
Thank you carol and Richard owens
Friendly staff most accommodating to visitors.the chef and his wife were consistently in touch with the resident needs. I could not recommend this resort more. Absolutely great.
Breakas was a fantastic place to stay the food, cocktails, service, and entertainment is highly recommended. The staff are incredible and attentive; nothing was an issue.
I would recommend breakas. It is beautiful resort on a beautiful beach. The staff is very welcoming and happy to help with everything. It is close to city and the longest we ever waited for the bus was 2-3 min. Amazing
The dinners and service were fantastic The Italian chef produces amazing flavoursome dishes. There was no need to eat anywhere else!
Resort was super clean and exceptionally well Maintained. Great beachside location with surf break . Cocktails, bar and nightly music and entertainment were of a high standard. Lovely gardens and peaceful location. Would recommend to friends!
The staff at Breaka's Beach Resort could not do enough to ensure our holiday was amazing. They were friendly, helpful and always smiling, The food was delicious and the location was perfect. We walked straight out of our room on to the beach - beautiful. We will be back!
It was great
- Very friendly and accomodating staff
- Delicious food and cocktails
- Tucked away in a nice pocket of Port Vila
- Relaxed vibe and not and over developed Resort
We had a beautiful stay. Very romantic and such a relaxing place. Staff are amazing and beautiful ambience
The staff were friendly and organised our day out perfectly,
We had no needs to go outside the resort for dining as the food was Five star!!
We would recommend staying h here to couples and individuals to relax.
As we are water uses and surfers this location was perfect. We took the added extra off having a beach front location which was great.
Food was good and enjoyed our meals. Bar prices and restaurant prices at resort same as the rest of eateries in Port Vila and we say' same as Aussie prices' so don't expect cheap. In saying that- we knew prior to going to Vanuatu- we loved getting involved with the entertainment etc at Breakas and staff were helpful without being pushy so if you wanted something all you had to do is ask. We would certainly go back and stay again. Only 4 stars as ceiling fan control was only on or off no speed control working and no air conditioner (but we knew that)
Service only 4 as would be nice to have a little more attention when hanging out in the afternoon etc around the pool or beac chairs for drinks etc
All up we had a great time there.
This was the best place for three 'girls' to celebrate our 50th Birthday. Relaxing, peaceful, friendly.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Breakas Beach Resort. The staff were all fantastic, always happy, smiling and nothing was too much trouble for them. The 14 years and above age restriction meant it was quiet and peaceful either beside the pool and bar or down on the beach. Our room was awesome and we both loved the outdoor shower. I would recommend BBR to anyone who wants to relax, drink a cocktail or two and enjoy the friendly hospitality of Vanuatu.
We stayed a week at a beach front fare. Worth the extra money to be on the beach. Staff at breakas were fantastic. So friendly and helpful. We would go back again.
Breakas is a fabulous resort and we would recommed it to anyone wanting a peaceful break in paradise. The facilities are lovely and the staff are amazing; we hope to holiday there again.
Food and bar prices more expensive than Auckland Central. Not just Breakas but all of Port Villa and resorts.
We ate one meal only,(dinner.) at Breakas due to cost.
Staff are amazing.
Prices aimed at Aussies so we lose with lower exchange rates.
Bonus was no young children.
Thank you Breakas Beach Resort for an incredible island getaway. My boyfriend and I had a fantastic time and would definitely return and recommend other couples and adults to the resort. Great location, helpful and friendly staff, fantastic food and 10 minutes to the middle of Port Vila. Amazing holiday.
The resort, staff, location are just amazing. To get the resort back to it's current state after Cyclone Pam is just unbelievable. The staff have done an outstanding job, the resort is beautiful, the service and food is impeccable and could not be faulted. Can't wait to go back next year....
Service was excellent and very punctual
Breakas is not the Hyatt so don't go there if that's what you want but if you want somewhere that is a it different but really comfortable and just so relaxing with staff that feel like family on the first day then it is for you.
This was a top break, this resort is a beauty, clean, staff very obliging. Frita, guest relations was excellent, thank you muchly Frita
A wonderful place to stay for any adult over 15 years old. The resort is built on the beach!! The staff are fantastic and everything one would need is available. The very frequent buses into Port Vila are available by flagging them down outside the resort gate and the security guards are on hand to assist. The cost is 150 vatu (less than $2.00).
Meals cost more than expected - approximately the same as in Australia and alcohol purchased at the hotel is very costly.
Food was great but just a little pricey otherwise a great resort. They would try to accommodate all of our wishes. My partner enjoyed the surf that was right in front of the resort. The huts were amazing, nice big soft bed.
The staff were friendly, the seafood and food was amazing and we had a wonderful stay at Breakas
Absolutely beautiful, if you want to relax by the sea and falling asleep with the sound of the waves, this is the place. The staff is so friendly,and very professional too, from the security officer to the cleaner, they were fantastic,you feel safe,and in Vanuatu you can trust them all from the staff at Breakas to the bus and taxi driver and the people on the island. Isaac the manager, Roy Frita and Katia, are excellent at their job, thank you you Breakas, for sure we will be back again, oh by the way, the food A plus, and the dining setting on the beach, beautiful.
We found Breaka's to be an excellent couples resort, friendly and courteous staff. Good value for money.
Breakas is the perfect place to escape from your busy life. No TV, great location, excellent food & service. I recommend this resort. The no children aspect is a welcome bonus.
Ideal for a relaxing holiday - just what we wanted
Great place to spend your time while in Vanuatu. Friendly and helpful staff . Food was a little expensive compared to places in Port Vila. But overall great place to stay.
My partner and I had a lovely 9 night stay at Breakas Beach Resort. We particularly loved the sundecks and hammocks dotted around the beach. The staff were lovely, the food delightful and cocktails were delicious. We loved Wednesday - Melanisian night and braved the kava on offer. While I didn't mind the no air-con my partner did suffer a bit. Apart from that we had a fantastic stay.
Thoroughly enjoyed stay at Breakas, fantastic position & great service
Awesome holiday and kids free resort so no children running around hogging the pool. Make sure you book a Beach Fare. Food a bit overpriced for dinner but there are plenty of other options in Port Vila.
Friendly people, plenty to do, easy to get around, could have stayed longer
A lovely place to go to get away from it all! Highly recommended for couples and people that enjoy swimming and water sports.
My fiancé and I had an amazing time during our 6 night stay at Breakas Beach Resort. The staff were lovely and the service was spot on. The pool and beach front location made for relaxing days and the resort is only a 10 minute bus ride into town. We stayed in a garden fares which was beautiful and cleaned daily.
We would definitely go back in a heart beat.
Great location. Friendly staff providing good service. Easy to organise trips and tours. Great place to relax around the resort or to get out and about. Great holiday experience.
Fantastic site for being away from the world but still with easy access to Vila if required.
Good meals & entertainment so stayed there the whole time.
Especially good value due to 5 days pay for 3.
Serene and quiet with comfortable rooms. No TV YAY!! Just a few little things could be tidied up. Lovely white beach, happy smiling staff and an easy bus ride to town. A great combination of resort , culture and the bustle of town .
lovely location and staff very friendly
Very relaxing, warm & welcoming, will be back again, thank you to everyone at Breakas for making our stay the most relaxing you years.
I cannot praise Breakas Beach Resort enough. The staff are so friendly and helpful, the location is great and the food was of the highest quality.
My fiancee and I spent our honeymoon exclusively at Breakas and after a few days we were so glad that we had decided not to move around.
The staff at Breakas greet you with a smile everyday and some become particular friends during your stay.
While I was a bit concerned after reading some bad reviews after making my booking I can say that whatever was happening when those people stayed is no longer a problem at Breakas. Any request we had was accommodated and Frida at the tour desk was particularly wonderful in organising some of our tours.
If you want luxury don't stay here but if you want beautiful island rooms, wonderful friendly people and the most relaxing atmosphere I've ever encountered Breakas is the place to go.
Breakas Beach Resort was exactly what we wanted. A beautiful location on the beach, fabulous pool, great food and drinks, friendly staff, no children.........a quiet, relaxing holiday in paradise.
Our Beachfront fare was perfect for us, right on the beach, clean, quiet and comfortable.
The pool was sensational - saltwater, clean and at the right temperature all the time.
Lovely food, nicely presented. The staff made us feel special and welcome.
A great, great holiday for us. Lots of swimming, lazing, reading and relaxing.
Lovely stay at Breakas - fabulous location and lovely pool.
Went with another couple....had the best time ever. The food was sensational every meal was the best. The staff were always helpful and cheerful. Location is perfect and rooms were fantastic. After you get used to the open air shower.. I can't wait to go back not sure anywhere else will compare..
Having worked in the Australian Outback for the last 7mths we needed a break!! I saw Breakers Resort advertised on TV so made a booking & am so glad we did as it was a great setting on the water also had excellent facilities for all.
Breakas was a perfect location to relax and unwind. Sunsets from the hammock sipping cocktails. Delicious seafood smorgasboard with free entertainment provided by island dancers was a highlight. Staff are shy initially, but have good sense of humour and nothing is a problem. Your enjoyment is their priority
Food 10 out of 10
Staff so friendly & nice
Location, could be a little closer to the main shops, but the distance isn't bad. Approx 15-20mins bus ride.
The views & rooms were clean and breath taking. Especially waking up to the waves of the ocean or sleeping near the beach at night.
They set up tables on the beach for dinner, so sweet & romantic with candles.
You can do as much .. or as little as you want! Highly recommended.
I loved my trip, the whole experience was worth every cent. I was worried about rain because we went in the rainy season but it was nice & sunny through & if it rained it did so for 5-15mins then stop & sun shine again.
The rooms were clean & neat, awesome outdoor type shower. The staff were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! so genuinely friendly.
Me & my sister agree we had the BEST food we had ever tried on our lives at that resort!
The food is quite expensive there but pretty worth it.
We loved our stay at Breakas it was very relaxing and was the perfect place to chill out for a week and do nothing. The entertainment, pool, food, cocktails and Hamocks to watch the sunset in are just what we were looking for.
My only critisism and this is nothing major would be the staff are not overly friendly which was a surprise as I was expecting to see happy smiling faces like in Fiji or any of the islands. Also if you are looking for privacy ask not to have Bungalow 4 as this sits right next to the bar and can be noisy.
Totally recommend for recharging the batteries. The resort staff were amazing, friendly and attentive. Spectacular spot, going to sleep and waking with the sound of waves crashing onto the beach! We will be back!
Cannot recommend this hotel enough. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend going with the beachfront bungalows for the amazing views. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and the food was amazing. Recommend the Saturday night seafood buffet. The fact that it is an adults only hotel really makes the difference when traveling as a couple. The only bad thing I can say about breakas is that when the cruise ships are in they must advertise their views because their pool and bar fills up with non guests that are a bit more boisterous than the regular guests. Some tried to charge drinks to our room. But apart from this it is an excellent hotel and thoroughly recommend to couples.
I have just returned from staying at Breakas Resort and it would have to be one of the best Resorts I have ever stayed in.
Port Vila and its attractions are only a short drive away, with buses and taxis constantly driving passed the front enterance.
The view is to die for, the staff very friendly, the grounds spotless, the owner George very hands-on, Alfred the tour desk operator very helpful and can organise anything in a moments notice, the food was of a 5 star standard, the fare cosy and bigger than expected (loved the bathroom).
Would definitely recommend getting a massage at the attached day spa - the best I have ever had.
All in all a wonderful Resort for couples and very relaxing with no children allowed.
If you are looking for a wedding or honeymoon venue, this Resort can not be beaten, you will be treated like royality!
My family just spent 4 days here, ending with my son getting married on the beach.
The venue, all the staff, accommodation and food was just just fantastic. We are already planning our next trip.
Breakas is definitely a cut above other resorts and as an adults only, it was vey friendly and relaxing. George (the owner) and Albert (the tour desk operator) were just awesome. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. The groundsmen are also fantastic and kept the whole place spotless.
One recommendation is to definitely get a massage for the 2 lovely ladies at the day spa. I have never had better.
The food was amazing! The total cost of our stay was unbelievable.
I totally recommend this resort!
Great room, location, beach, surfing! No complaints at all.
Got friendly with other young couples around the pool bar so I definitely recommend it for other young couples.
Good base to go exploring Efate and you can walk out to the front of the resort and hail a bus and they can take you into town.
