We have just returned from another fantastic break on the GC and once again chose to stay at One The Esplanade. This time with friends we stayed in 39b on the 14th floor. Location is unbeatable and the service second to none. Comfy beds, foxtel, views, good bathrooms but ALMOST ready for a revamp. Next time we'll try the superior... More

My husband and 2 children (aged 6 and 4) stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment on th 8th floor with stunning views of the ocean and also all the way down The Esplanade as far as the... More

We stayed in a two bedroom unit for 6 days for the four of us plus toddler. The unit was very spacious, beautiful view of the beach, secure access and direct exit to the beach. However, there are a few negative points: - no servicing of the apartment for stays less than a week. The floor tiles does get quite... More

Spent a week and did not want to go home. Great views, excellent location, secure building and car parking, good amenities including pool and BBQ area. Will definitely stay again. Direct access to a patrolled beach.

We had a most enjoyable trip at the Gold Coast and our stay in One The Esplanade was made more pleasant because of the superb service provided by Judy and Chris. We did not know any better but we were a group of 10 travellers in 3 apartments and Judy and Chris arranged for all of us to be accommodated... More

This is a great complex,perfectly located for access to beach, SkyPoint, Infinity and the main scene of Surfers Paradise. The pool is beautiful and we enjoyed peaceful early morning swims before the sun got too hot, which was heaven. Parking onsite underground was excellent. Room fit-out was adequate, and we had what we needed in the kitchen. On the negative... More

Stayed at unit 35. Ocean view was fantastic. Rooms did not have air conditioning, but it was cooling and windy enough. The thing we did not like was the shower in the master room. It had very poor flow. Nothing Judy nor Chris could do as I think it was a plumbing issue. Lucky thing was the shower area beside... More
