Good resort package for wheelchair user

Review of Breakers Resort
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 13 Nov 2023
The wheelchair accessibility at the resort was very good. There is a generous ramp from the undercover parking garage to the reception floor. There are three lifts that service all the floors (big enough for a wheelchair and perhaps two other people). Generators keep the lifts in working order during load shedding. The outside passages (from the lifts to the units) are wide enough.
All the units are classified as wheelchair friendly and in essence they are. The only problem is that the bathrooms can only be classed as tiny, with no chance of a wheelchair fitting through the door. On the 5th and 9th floors, there is a disabled bathroom outside in the passage, located between units 1 and 2 on those floors, that provide spacious facilities and a shower with a built-in shower chair.
The lounge and outside space are accessible, with a disabled bathroom located on Floor 0 where the lounge/restaurant/spa/hairdresser are. The pathway outside to the beach and promenade is a little steep but quite do-able in a wheelchair. Likewise with the wooden pathway to the Hawaan forest, although there are some steep areas that require a push.
Date of stay: October 2023
Room Tip: The higher up the unit, the less noise from the pool and outdoor areas below, especially noisy...

This is just a relaxing an beautiful place to spend a holiday. The rooms are clean, neat. There is wifi available. This is a place where family, kids of any age can relax an unwind. I enjoyed the facilities, miniature golf, volleyball, the slides at the pool is so awesome. There is a game room for the kids to enjoy. There is never a dull moment. Easy access to the beach. Would recommend this place if anyone looking to book a holiday.

My family had an amazing time, resort very child friendly and the staff are world class. The unit itself was magnificent. My kids are water babies, so the pool and waterslides are a super bonus. Hubby and myself enjoyed the bar very much. We will definately recommend it to others.

Went away for my birthday and WOW the staff, the resort and the experience was just amazing. We booked directly with Suzan, and we had such a pleasant stay. Would definitely recommend this resort if you looking to relax and unwind. Also, the location was amazing.

Best family vacay resort! We are frequent guests at Breakers!This stay deserved a great review. Check in was so quick - Warm, friendly welcome, no queues and our room was ready. We had a beautiful seaview! The apartment was so clean and comfortable. The kids entertainment 10/10. In SA Great weather calls for a braai! We enjoyed the new braai area and the kids enjoyed hours of fun at the brand new jungle gym!

Room tip: The kids pool is heated. Amazing beauty spa and salon onsite! So dont worry if you break a nail packing!
