Overall we enjoyed our stay and the hotel is conveniently located for all local immenities. We stayed for a week in the one bedroom studio apartment. The room had a king bed (2 singles fixed together), which was comfortable enough, a fridge (which was quiet), a microwave, smallish TV, a good and quiet air conditioner, and plenty of wardrobe and...

My room was ready early so I was allowed an early check-in which was fantastic after hours in transit. The staff were all very friendly, helpful & accommodating. I definitely recommend this place for couples or friends.

With reception only staffed till 6pm we had to let ourselves in with the key left in the safe outside the property. We were in room 2B and after the initial Shakespearean quotes, thought the room was OK if nothing special. It was a good sized 1 bedroom apartment and we weren't actually planning on spending much time there. The... More

To be fair, I actually thought the property was really nice and the location was great. Here's the problem, we paid $220 a night for the apartment, only to be greeted by a sign above the sink saying that in order to keep prices competitive, only stays over 8 nights ($1760 in our case) would have their apartment serviced, and...

We arrived at the BrakFree Eco Beach and got a room facing towards the pool. Room was OK but since not used to self catering where we come from we missed simple things like breakfast in the morning. What was not OK was their way of introducing WIFI, when logging in and accepting the price for two hours - no... More

Stayed for the weeknd with the family and was very impressed with the general cleanliness and size of the 1 bedroom accommodation. The staff were very friendly, always smiling and made the check in/out so easy. Great that undercover parking was also included. Thank you, we will definitely be coming again.
