“Perfect location”
Reviewed 21 May 2012

Spent one week in a one bedroom apartment in May 2012. Clean, perfect in every way. A little walk to the supermarket (i.e. takes 20 minutes) but enjoyable none the less. If one had a car, no trouble at all. I would have liked a sachet or two of laundry powder, as it's difficult buying it when travelling on a plane - or else bring your own from home. More detergent for the kitchen would have been nice as well. We would love to go again. The pool and barbeque areas were great. All in all a wonderful holiday.

Room Tip: We're in our early 60s and managed to walk to the supermaket and shops. Probably older people m...

The location is great and the staff are very friendly. We found the room to be clean, comfortable and generous in size. Our room had fantastic views of the beach/ocean. Very nice constant sea breeze into our apartment. There was a nice heated pool and convenient entry to the beach. The only disappointment was that an additional daily charge of $10aud was required for the use of the airconditioner (remote to operate unit was missing). This was not mentioned in the booking of the apartment so we found this very misleading. Also, we found the bed to be very uncomfortable, giving us both sore backs and necks each morning.

Apartment was dated and poorly maintained and the a number of the appliances were not working when we arrived, which is a real pain in the neck when advertised as fully self contained. Staff were friendly although unhelpful in fixing the problems. Location is good (right on the beach), however with the large amount of accomadation on the Gold Coast there is better appointed apartments and better value elsewhere. Overall we were disappointed.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a renovated room (ours wasn't)

My partner and I stayed here for just over a week and we didn't want to leave at the end. The location is amazing. You can walk out right on to the beach. It's very close to the bus stops making getting to the theme parks really easy.

The staff are really lovely and helpful. They even let us stay in our room for a bit longer after check out while we waited for the airport shuttle.

The rooms are really new and clean and have plenty of space. My only issue was that it advertised on wotif as fully air conditioned, which it is, but you need to pay extra for it. But as you're so close to the ocean we found opening the windows cooled the room quite quickly.
