We spent 9 nights at Scarborough and found this resort was in a great location in a small strip of shops and cafe/restaurants. Friendly and helpful staff and clean, well decorated rooms. Great place to stay if you want to sit back and relax. Exactly what we needed for our stay. Not far from the Gold Coast /Sunshine coast so... More

Loved the double room. Great view over the bay. All the staff from the Managers to the environmental services were excellent. Friendly and helpful. All queries answered promtly. Fit out of the rooms was better than places twice the price. Will definitely be back.

Our daughter took us away for a short break to the Scarborough Beach Resort. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment with a large balcony and ocean views. The apartment was very spacious, clean and well presented. The size of the apartment makes sure you can have your own space, if needed from the family. Like anywhere you stay you... More
