Lots of space, great location. The building is older, you can only get wifi in the living room, the shower dripped and one of the lights didn't work. But. This was a great place for our family to stay. The rooms are large and comfortable. Walking distance to shops. Restaurants and the beach. Perfect spot for a family holiday. We... More

Bedding is clean The double was comfortable, but short for me at 6'4. Not a biggy . The grounds are well maintained. Michelle and her staff are pleasant and helpful.... More

We stayed here during our recent trip in December. Very pleasant manager, we checked in late at night and things were in order, even the AC was on, so that we would be comfortable. Car dock right outside the room was convenient. Close to Surfer's Paradise and theme parks, so a good spot. Lots of eateries around, so that's a... More

This is the 3rd time I have stayed and each time has been very pleasant, comfortable, clean, Management go out of their way to be helpful. The location with the Broadwater and many Restaurants close by is excellent and surprised on how quiet it is being on a busy road. I recommend this Jadran to families on a budget.

Room was unpleasantly smelling of stale smoke. Furniture was very old and couches so dirty and smelly we did not want to sit on them. Majority of residents appear to be 'living' there and have 'interesting' haircuts. Smoking and drinking on the balconies, seemed more like housing commission than tourist motel. One resident had their car jacked up and in... More
