The facility was clean, convenient and the views spectacular. Staff were always very friendly and helpful. Ocean Plaza will certainly be the accommodation of choice when next visiting or holidaying in the Coolangatta area.

The resort is very convenient to beach, esplanade, shops (located directly from level 1 of complex!). The unit was spotlessly clean, spacious and comfortable with a superb view of the beach and coast line. Reception staff were helpful and obliging. Pool area well provided with lounges and seats and a generous shaded area and the pool was sparkling.
