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.

My family really enjoyed our stay here. We stayed in a self-contained 2brm, 2 bathroom room which had everything we needed to be comfortable. The kitchen was a good size with plenty of cooking items, crockery etc. We slept well in the comfortable beds. I liked how there was a washing machine and dryer also. The hotel is in a great location with a bus stop close by, shops just 5 minutes walk down the road and 1 block back from the beach. The heated pool was nice to swim in and I loved the pontoon going out to the river. We had a couple of small problems in our room which were dealt with swiftly by the very friendly and helpful staff at reception. We will stay here again next time we come to the Gold Coast for holidays.

We had a great stay here. In a great location with access to both the central Surfers Paradise and Nerang plus access to the family activities of the theme park precinct in the north.
Previous reviews that date back a few years tell of negative experiences at this site. None of that was our experience as we only have great things to say about our stay at Pelican Cove Apartments.
The apartment we stayed in had everything we needed and expected, it was clean, everything worked, the beds were comfortable and the grounds were beautiful groomed with two pools and two spas - one heated and one cold.
The BBQ area was clean and the on site car parking under the building was handy.
This is definitely our go to holiday accommodation on the Gold Coast from now on.

Family of four visiting from Sydney stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment, lovely dealings with Danielle and Michelle and all the permanent residents are just so wonderful. So welcoming and chatty despite us being the visitors and then being the couples that live here! Pools are clean, our apartment spacious and clean, bbq facilities clean and wonderful views all around. Close to all shops and cafes. Very quiet of a night time respectful visitors and guests during our stay...
completely faultless stay, thank you for having us we will be back

Thank you for a memorable stay at your establishment

My husband and I really enjoyed our 3 night stay at Pelican Cove Apartments. The location and setting was fabulous and the place had a really nice feel about it. Bed and pillows were really comfortable and the shower had wonderful pressure, both of which are important to us. Well equipped and clean kitchen. Our only suggestion for improvement would be replacing the 2 x 2 seater sofas which have seen better days but this did not impact on our stay too much. We look forward to staying again in the future.

There were 10 of us on family holiday. Apartments just perfect for what we needed. Close to all amenities, theme parks etc. BBQ, tennis courts and pools were all we needed on our rest days, no need to go anywhere. Management were the best they catered to our every need, so helpful and understanding with our forever changing plans due to NZ family not being able to join us (darn you COVID). Thank you WE WILL BE BACK

There were 12 of us. We hada ball. Close to all amenities, theme parks and beaches. Our own pool and tennis court were excellent and the BBQ area was also well managed and working.
I was chief cook and bottle washer. But I enjoyed it immensely. I will be back. Thank you Michelle.

We crushed at pelican cover for almost 2 weeks with my partner and 2 friends, and the apartment was just perfect, super clean and neat.
They even wait us with coffee and tea as present, that was such a sweet touch.
We have so much fun with the pool and the tennis court!
highly recommended!

Staff were friendly and helpful. Facilities were clean and excellent. Other guests well behaved. Great for a private restful holiday. Would return in future. Located in very quiet corner of the Gold Coast, but was close to shopping, dining and other attractions. The calm waterfront was fantastic for boaties!

My wife and I recently stayed here for a week and it was a nightmare. The apartment itself was located on the ground floor with a balcony facing South towards the swimming pools. There was a noisy little dog in a nearby unit that just barked and barked and barked, waking us up during the night on several occasions. There was a BBQ facility not too far away from our apartment and most evenings noisy drunks were partying there and the noises caused the paper thin walls to vibrate late into the night. As for the paper thin walls, the walls are so thin we could hear people in neighboring units peeing, pooping, farting, swearing and doing other X rated things. Keep your voice down if you don't want your conversation to be heard through your wall by the neighbor here! Doors would open and slam shut at night causing the walls to vibrate. Some units were playing loud music until the early hours of the morning, and other units would start their loud music early in the morning. The swimming pool was okay but a few days into our stay we noticed a poo floating in the pool and that was our last trip into the pool - we reported that to management and they removed it straight away. The only other thing management did was act like fun police for the pool area and warn kids who dived into the pool and just did other things that kids do. As far as handling complaints, management was useless. Management did nothing about the barking dog and did nothing about the loud music at night. Management also does nothing about people who smoke in common areas despite smoking in common areas being prohibited - management does however provide ash trays in common areas for smokers to use! The icing on the cake was when we saw a drunk guy staying on a top floor apartment on the other side urinate over his balcony and onto the units below - disgusting! Anyway, this place served its main purpose as we stayed here to be close to friends who live in nearby Runaway Bay. Other than that, the whole week was a nightmare and we would advise anybody thinking of staying here to avoid this place like the plague.

We hired a car from Brisbane Airport and it was so convenient, you can catch a train from the Brisbane airport down to the gold coast and the price is very reasonable but it wont drop you at Pelican Cove, you will still need a taxi. The public transport is excellent too. But a car is the way to go as far as we are concerned. secure parking under Pelican cove. But there is a small shopping centre nearby and the broad water is only a short walk that can supply all your grocery needs ect.
