Stayed here for three nights. Although I live in Surfers Paradise I had lots of relatives in town for a wedding and took the option to stay somewhere else :-) Management were great and gave me a terrific one bedroom unit.

This is a lovely spot for a vacation, but in these apartments more like a staycation. Like a home away from home. Facilities are basic, just like home, and you easily cater for yourself. Easy walk to the beach and Cavill, but far enough away so you are not disturbed by the louder vacationers.

Always great food accompanied by terrific service. A warm friendly atmosphere with a splendid variety of italian cuisine. I dine here with friends as often as possible. The price is very reasonable and I have no problems recommending Costa to anybody.

Hi Poidre Yes, we must agree also that the food and service is always good at Costa D'Oro Italian Restaurant but unfortunately you have published your review on Costa D'Ora Holiday Apartments....We've got a small 4 burner BBQ around the poolside which cooks a great steak.

Stayed here two nights - used as a base to get to Movie World and Sea World. Facilities are old and worn, though practical. Walking distance to Cavill Ave (main food/shopping street in Surfers Paradise). One block from beautiful beach. This accommodation was reasonably priced by Gold Coast standards. If possible, try and get a room higher in the complex...
