Just recently stayed in a one bedroom ocean view apartment - such a great view and good sized room, the basics are supplied for you which helps. Great location in between Broadbeach and Surfers Paradise!! Quiet place with lovely owners - John and Anne were very nice and if reception wasn't open John would always pick up his mobile happy...

I have stayed here before. The place is very good value and has car parking. The view is great. The managers are very helpful and we will be going back there next May. Recommended. I need 200 characters .... so, the Northcliffe(?) surf club 400 metres down the road heading to the CBD is well worth visiting. It has a... More

Got a good price. Our one bedder could have done with a makeover as the kitchen was looking tired but it was clean, cosy and sunny. Well equipped. Bedroom and bathroom was a bit small and basic but clean. Beach 50m across the road...so convenient especially with a toddler. Management helpful...could keep our car in the car park for a... More

Stayed in November and had a great stay. Nice little unit, perfect for couples. Really nicely furnished and the views from the unit we stayed in (6B) were amazing, sitting on the balcony listening to the waves with no road in front was very relaxing, we even saw a dolphin from the balcony one day. Had all the conveniences needed... More

I found Emerald Sands to be excellent value for money. The location is ideal in that you're walking distance from all the highlights of Surfers Paradise, but just far enough away to be nice and quiet. The beach is right across the road, the views are excellent and the local surf club is just a block away. I couldn't ask... More

The price and location can not be beaten. The managers were very helpful and pleaseant. Some would say that the room was a little bit tired but it was clean spacious and had everything you need. We will go back again.

Well this place was okay and I probably should have paid more attention to the reviews before booking. The location is amazing. If you are coming to Surfers for the beach and surfing then there isn't much else that is closer for the price. The place was okay, but is hardly 4 stars. The tell tale sign that things are... More

Thank you for your review. In reply to your concerns we note the following: The sign in the lift is to remind children not to jump or fool around as it can trip the lift safety switch, resulting in a callout to Otis. Since the sign was installed 4 years ago we have had no callouts to Otis. All bedroom... More

Thank you for your review. In reply to your concerns: On check-in the 2 adult guests did not say they had a 3rd person staying until asked at check-out on departure. We don't provide extra linen for an extra guest if we are not informed on check-in even though we did ask how many were staying. We were surprised with... More
