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.

These apartments are in a good location. Just a short walk into Coolangatta and very easy access to the beach. Lovely little cafe on corner for meals, snacks,coffee. We had a 2 bedroom apartment which was quite spacious. The living areas had obviously had a bit of a facelift, bedrooms and bathrooms tired and dated. Our ensuite was so tiny you could hardly turn around in it, 2nd bathroom not much better. No exhaust fans in bathrooms. No instructions for appliances. The reception desk was not attended very often, we had questions about the tv and thought our ceiling fans weren't working but no one around to ask. Overall very average accommodation, needs updating and service could be improved.

So old and unmaintained. The drain in the laundry floor waste overflowed three times when you took the plug out of the sink. First time had to get Manager to unblock the drain and provide a mop. We managed with towels the other times. Had to leave the apartment when we washed as the machine was so loud you couldn’t hear yourself think. Husband repaired the tap in the ensuite to prevent it falling off. The doors and screens were so corroded you couldn’t open them. Had to get manager to put doors back on tracks. The accumulation of sand in the couches was disgusting and filthy. We had to clean them. Pool and spa was dirty and that complaint was coming from our Granddaughters. In short the apartment has received little or no preventative maintenance between lettings.

We had a 3 day stay and had a great time, perfect location in a quiet area, short walk to the beach, lovely pool area. Our 2 bedroom unit was a great size although looking a little run down. Very dated bathrooms and laundry which require a revamp. The unit was immaculately clean. No air conditioning might be an issue when the weather heats up but a lovely breeze saved us from the heat.

I stayed two weeks with my family including two small children, and we loved the Rainbow Commodore. Fantastic location, easy walk to Rainbow Bay beach, only couple minutes walk up to the incredible Point Danger lookout (where you can see whales galore during the migration season), and 10 minutes walk up to Coolangatta shops. The apartment we stayed in was very clean and well maintained, we have been staying in lots of apartments on the Gold Coast and this was the cleanest. Lovely view out to beach and lots of windows front and back to get the breezes. The on-site managers Karen and Max were so accommodating and helpful, we loved our stay and really did not want to leave!

If you what to be close to the beach and walking along the beach, or go swimming at the beach. Very close to walk to Coolangatta shop or Surf Clubs. You can go down for a coffee shop, just across the road.

Extremely happy with the service that we received whilst we stayed at the property. Apartment was very clean and pleasant and management very helpful.Views over Rainbow Bay were unobstructed and sunny all day .Magic views to the mountains were also available. Close walking distance to Coolangatta via esplanade and boardwalk. Short flat walk to Rainbow Bay Beach for safe swimming.

Lovely place to relax and unwind with the beach only a short stroll away. From the higher floors you are able to see through to the beach. Karen & Max are wonderful and very friendly managers. Heaps of restaurants and surf clubs for breakfast, lunch and dinner to select from. Big rooms and plenty of space in the kitchen and living areas. Balconies are big and a great way to watch the sun come down. Can't wait to visit again this year.

14 of us were visiting a friend in Rainbow Bay to celebrate a significant birthday. We decided to stay at Rainbow Commodore based on friends’ recommendations. We had three apartments with guest ages ranging from 3 to 71 quite an ask to keep entertained. Except for the birthday lunch we spent the whole time at the resort. The Managers were amazing and made sure we made the most of their facilities. We moved from pool table to terrace effortlessly with lots of laughs and good times. The units were spotless, facilities up to the mark and beds heavenly. So comfy! Aspect looking over Rainbow Bay and up to Surfers can’t be beaten. This is a gem. Your holiday will be memorable and the Managers Karen and Max must be congratulated on their outstanding property and service.
