Just in the week being here at schoolies I have had an amazing time. I think the amazing time was mainly because of the staff that work here. This includs the security and the front desk staff. I'd like to especially mention Danielle and Toni at front counter, they would go above and beyond just to help us out with...

A central location, walking distance to the Surfers Paradise shopping, restaurants and bars. We stayed in a ground floor apartment by the pool with a well planted for privacy, outdoor area and gardens. The beds and furniture were very comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked with equipment, although the glasses and crockery required a wash before use. The apartment was...

With undercover secure parking and away from the noise of the clubs etc it is a great place for families. Our family with two small children has stayed here twice without any complaint.
