Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Building well located but apartment old and in need of renovation. Washing machine leaking, lots of hairs in shower and bathroom, daughter found shards of brown glass under the couch, dusty. Pool area was decent and was obviously renovated in the past years. Did not do my research before booking but assumed apartment would be better for over $600 per night. Would avoid in future.

This is a wonderful place to stay. So close to everything and yet also very private and not noisy. The ammenities (pool, gym, BBQ and steam room) were all looked after and easily accessible. The room was clean, well maintained and bright. Beds were very comfortable. We had a fabulous stay.

We love staying here at Paradise Centre Apartments and stay here every year as it is so central to everything we do while on holiday. This time around we had 2 apartment rooms due to the amount of family staying with our rooms being on different floors. The lovely lady at reception gave use an extra fob to be able to access the different levels and these were great but these lasted a couple of days before they stopped working. When we saw reception we got different staff who wanted them returned, said we aren't allowed them and to give each other one of our room keys. We get 2 room keys per room. When you have more than one person in a room you need more than one key so giving over a room key is not an option. We have had this extra fob before on previous visits with no issues. There needs to be a better system for families to be able to access each other and all staff should be on the same page. Other than this the other issues were small and didnt affect our stay. I would like to see them invest in a scales for bag weighing 🙂 this would save time at the airport.

So impressed with the views, locations and ease of access to Cavill avenue! Was a great stay, the heated pools were a nice plus too! Our room had 360 views of surfers paradise and was right above the hustle and bustle of Cavill. Check out was quick and easy.

Perfect beach front location, modern functional apartment. Clean and staff wonderful. Would definitely stay here again due to its location, price and facilities. Having the beach across the road is ideal as well as Gold Coast amenities including several restaurants within easy walking distance is a bonus. Wooolworths in the complex is ideal

I called a week early to request a high floor if available. Was put on the second floor will no ocean view. Arrived at 2pm for checkin and had to wait till 2:30 to get into the room. Lots of issues in the room. The walls were absolutely filthy. Curtains were old. Toilets not cleaned properly. Sliding doors don’t close tight. The air conditioning unit was inside a cupboard in the unit which sounded like a tornado in the bedrooms. DO NOT STAY IN THIS ROOM. YOU WILL BE DISAPPOINTED Location and pool facilities are the only good thing going for this accommodation.
