These apartments are quite dated and could use some TLC , however you can't argue with the amazing views and perfect location . Set directly across from the beach and within minutes from cavil ave . There are pros and cons with the apartments themselves , no screens on windows or balcony, so if u want breeze you will have... More

I booked a weekend away with my partner through jetstar. Then Rang and spoke to Paul a week before my arrival asking for a early check in (midday) and if possible an apartment above 5th floor but not too high. He said he would "upgrade" us to a gorgeous room with the ocean front off the master bedroom on the... More

My partner and I stayed here during October and we were very happy with how everything was. We stayed on the 5th floor and the view from our apartment was spectacular! With just a 5 minute walk from the main strip The pricing is also very reasonable. The man at the desk was lovely and made us feel very welcome,... More

I would rate this place a 0/10 honestly needs a lot of attention, photos are false advertisement as they display probably the best room they have... Upon arrival we found dirty dishes which was disgusting... The utilities are that old when you use the stove top or grill it smells like fire. The pool said it was heated on the... More

Hello and I wish to apologise for your unfortunate experience as outlined above. When you identified the problems encountered I directed our housekeeping staff to rectify their oversights and believed that all matters had been attended to. Unfortunately the building and lifts are quite old and building works and lift upgrades are being conducted over the next few years. We... More

This hotel had friendly and helpful staff, magnificent views and great location but we felt disappointed by the following. We found the elevator to be old and unit 32 to be hot as there was no air-conditioning. The toilet smelt like urine for our whole 3 days, the bathroom floor was always wet and the front door was busted which... More

Unit No 10 is disgusting. The furniture should be at the tip. The kitchen is about 30 years old and is a pile of crumbling chipboard. The fixtures don't work and the fridge leaks. This unit should not be in the letting pool. Our car was also vandalised in the carpark by one of the residents who let down our... More

I just spent a lovely week at Olympus in unit 32 on the tenth floor. Great location, within walking distance to everything you would need. Amazing views. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Excellent value for money. I have stayed at quite a few places on the Gold Coast and I would definitely stay there again.

This hotel was great. The apartment (I had 21, level 6) was clean, spacious and modern. Bed was large and comfortable. View AMAZING! Kitchen is newly decorated and very clean and modern. Good laundry and bathroom. Negative: Internet was very slow and didn't work on some devices. I didn't bother chasing it up with reception as I was too busy... More

Hello Bec Comments are noted. We are looking at having air conditioning installed in apartments in 2016 so that is a big positive for the building. Unfortunately as we do not allow smoking in the apartments people have to go onto their balconies to smoke and this can inconvenience guests in other apartments (as I have experienced as a non-smoker)....
