A great location & friendly service, our start to our beach holiday for the last week of school holidays was excellent. Our 7th floor unit was perfectly located with ocean views that don't disappoint. The unit was clean & well equipped for our 5 night stay. A great pool, very family friendly. A fantastic spot to holiday.

Comfortable amenities, casual, relaxed ambience with convenient location beside the ocean. Spectacular 180 degree views from extensive balcony, perfect for whale spotting! Family vacation with four generations, was a most memorable long weekend with evening cocktails and music on the balcony. Watch the wind; it whipped up and whistled round us, so were unable to enjoy the balcony as much...

Stayed in apartment 907 over the new year. Absolutely loved it. Spacious, fresh, clean and with amazing views. Added bonus of 2 secure car parks. Beach and restaurants only metres away. The Greek restaurant across the road is awesome.

What a fantastic location. Service was brilliant. We arrived from an early flight and were able to check in by 9am. The apartment itself was excellent. Clean, air conditioned, large with amazing sea views. Pool was great. Free wifi was slow but 4G was available so it didn't really matter.

We spent a lovely Christmas at the Sebel. Very nice 3 bed apartment, spacious and very clean. The swimming pool is great for all, but particularly for children as the lagoon shape is perfect for adventures. All in all, well recommended

Location perfect and central. Large unit with a really well equipped kitchen. 8 th floor had a great view and not noisy at all. A new bed in the main bedroom and the front door is hard to lock . Otherwise a nice unit.

The hotel is in a perfect location with a lovely view and a very short walk to shops restaurants etc. We stayed in the apartment on one of the higher floors and could not hear any traffic. The room was modern and clean with a beachy, contemporary feel as well as new and working appliances. All the rooms were near...

Apartments are all different, this year ours was noisy, dated & grubby There are lots of nicer, cheaper options available. We had a nicer one last year. Not thoroughly cleaned before our arrival; shards of glass brushed under the sofa & coffee table, windows needed cleaning, bathroom would benefit from some bleach. Apartments are not cleaned just new Manchester left...

Two couples had plenty of space here in a three bedroom apartment on the 13th floor. Great balcony and views over Coolangatta Beach and a handy location with restaurants and shops nearby. If you can't face the rough and tumble of the icy surf (20 deg C the day we were there) there is a pool on the second floor...

The Sebel is nothing short of fantastic. From the first point of contact with William (the Manager) on the phone during a very emotional time for me as my Mother had just passed away and we were making the 6.5 hour drive to the Gold Coast through to our departure ... everything was great. Halfway into our drive I realised...
