"Breezes Beach Club review"
It is certainly worth emphasizing that much of this families disappointment may have been because they stayed at a very high quality safari camp, prior to Breezes which is regarded as a good four star hotel. We often have travellers who do a similar thing, opting to splash out on the safari in order to make the most of excellent guiding and then economise on the beach. Usually this is not a problem as we emphasize the difference in standards and of course price - Selous Safari Camp is about three times the price of Breezes. Perhaps we had not been clear enough in this case and it is a shame that these travellers expectations were not met as a result.
We also asked for comments on the operation of the water sports activities, and were assured by the team there that these trips are always lead by someone qualified in first aid. The guide in this case was a trained lifeguard called Sean who is 20 years old and from the UK. We were also told that every boat is equipped with a first aid kit, vinegar for any stings that may occur, life jackets, VHF radios, mobile phones, life buoys and ropes. Also currents are checked by a member of the team before any guests enter the water.
