I am not meaning to sound pompous but Golden Riviera is not the type of place I would generally consider staying in.
However, I was so glad to have my 'manners put back in' by this great accommodation.
We booked about a week out from our stay on Wotif.com (the only way GR takes bookings) and got a baaaaaargain for a two bedroom apartment.
Aircon in living room which sort of drifts into the bedrooms but I'd be a bit concerned a super hot weekend (it was 30 during our stay). Cieling fans in bedrooms. Main room is queen bed and ensuite. Second room is twins and own bathroom. Full living facilities such as laundry, kitchen, secure parking etc.
The pool is great and not too over run with kids.
Security of the entire compound is also very good.
10 minute cab / drive from OOL and it is right on the patrolled beach (albeit not beach views) it is a great location. You get use to the planes which can sometimes feel like they are landing on you but they do not disturb sleep.
Tugun surfclub is a three minute stroll and good for lunch / dinner. Viking (Currumbin) surfclub is awesome and a lovely 20 minute stroll along the beach from GR. Plenty of other dining options around.
Generally you get what you pay for however this cheap n cheerful offers amazing value for money and really delivers in comfort and locale.
