I stayed at Breakfree Long Island in January with my girlfriend for 3 nights. Better late than never I suppose. We decided to travel to Long Island mainly because we got it on a very affordable package deal. I was not expecting the world with this deal but I was looking forward to a few days of relaxation. I could...

I only found out the hotel was closed for refurbishment by chance when I asked how to arrange transfers less than 2 weeks before our arrival. We had paid in full. I was offered alternative accommodation in Airlie beach which is hardly an alternative to staying on an island in the Whitsundays. We will be given our money back but...

Dear emh515, Thank you for your feedback. After announcing on 5th January that we would be closing for a major refurbishment program from 30th January 2015, we endeavoured to contact all guests that had made a booking. There was a very limited number of bookings that only had an email address, but we managed to contact these, or the booking...

We were extremely disappointed with this accommodation and location. Our travel agent, Flight Centre recommended it as the best location to have an opportunity to see the Great Barrier Reef. This was not correct Hamilton Island would have been the best location as the boat-WhitSundays Cruises leaves from there directly. The Break-Free Resort website is misleading, it is propriety. This...

The rooms are pretty basic but are with all the necessary mod cons. The island is great to discover with oysters just lying on the beach. The walking trails are great to discover and do are the many beaches and bays around. Best value with the special deal.

Due to our limited time in the Whitsundays area we actually visited Long Island as independent daytrippers. We caught the earliest morning ferry from Airlie Beach and the last ferry back from the Long Island jetty the same day. We were blessed with a gorgeous blue sky day, and the tide was in that morning making for picture postcard views....

The misses and I have recently spent a week at this resort. The island is Awsome to get away from the normal commercial holiday destinations. It is fairly quiet and basic but we felt that added too the feel and atmosphere of being on a island away from the busy tourist areas. The hotel is fairly ran down but it...

We were pleasantly surprised by the accommodation having read some negative reviews, however it was clean and had all the necessities. You cant beat the view from your room as you are right on the beach and just meters from the water. We found the staff to be really friendly. There was only one night from the four we were...

BreakFree is definitely geared towards couples or families. I was there as a solo traveler and there were very limited options for social interactions. The room was fine. Clean but a bit spartan which was fine. The communication could have been better. I had some issues for some trips I wanted to take but it would have been a lot...

This was a very beautiful place. There were birds everywhere. We saw kookaburras up close and could hear them as we were waking up. There were cockatoos and bush stone curlews. The bush stone curlews would come around to our table by the snack bar and stand motionless. There were magpies with melodic calls. The turkeys were everywhere. We had...
