After having our trip booked to the Gold Coast for months in advance, we were so excited to finally get to our apartment. We were absolutely blown away by the view, staying in a clean, spacious and modern one bedroom apartment on the 13th floor. So close to everything: beach, shops and yet so so quiet. Judy and Chris were...

We have just returned from our holiday on the Gold Coast. We stayed at ONE The Esplanade in Surfers for a week. My family, 2 adults and 2 teenage boys stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment overlooking the Pacific. Fabulous, roomy apartment with magnificent views of the ocean from every room! The apartment was spacious, clean and had all amenities...

We loved being in the heart of Surfers and right on the beach. It was still quiet and private for us as we were up on the 4th floor. The kids could take a swim in the pool and then get down onto the beach without having to worry about walking a long way or crossing roads. The surf lifesaving...

I won't mention any names but we booked two nights at another Hotel for a friend's birthday, after a very disappointing first night we decided we wanted to shift elsewhere. The minute we walked in to the lobby of One we were greeted by Chris he gave us a quick tour & gave us a more than reasonable price. Couldn't...

It certainly enjoys one of the best views of the beach. You could literally hear the cheers, laughters, screams, celebrations at the beach right from the balcony. As it is strategically positioned on the beach front, you get more of the view simply by watching the northern side of the beach action. Resident manager is very nice and helpful. He...
