We love staying at The Breakers!! Out of all the main hotels on Lagoon Drive, we think it has the best outdoor area. Lovely swimming pools, water slides for kids and a large grassy area. We use our timeshare points to get a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom unit for 6 of us (parents, grandparent and 3 young men...21 and two 17 year...

My husband and I had the absolute pleasure to stay at the Breakers from Saturday, 8 April- 15 April 2017. We flew from Johannesburg to King Shaka International airport (Kulula). The airport is a mere 30 minutes drive from Breakers Resort. This proved to be a far better alternative than driving down to the coast. We made use of local...

Bacardi was pre ordered by friends the day before arrival, they ran out after the 1st round of drinks. The bar...

We enjoy the breakers and come here annually for a weeks holiday. Quite a few activities for the kids. The restaurant is slow in busy times and if you would like to go for dinner I suggest the Sands down the road as an alternative. Otherwise pleasant enough to stay

Absolutely great. The views from our room were amazing with the nature reserve right next door. Only let down was to not have a balcony. Staff was friendly and accomodating to our every need. Lovely pools and lovely restaurant .

Decent enough resort. But beware of the lying cheating staff and management. They will screw you over every chance they get. They will lye to your face and not willing to do anything if a room is not up to standard. They will cheat to ensure that refunds are not paid. Rather stay away.
