These apartments were in a great location in surfers, near the observation sky point and all the local nightlife although very quiet during the night therefore no need to worry about noise. The apartment was clean and fresh when we walked in with clean bedding etc. The accommodation had a large bed, tv with cable, balcony and kitchen diner and... More

my friend and I were "upgraded" to this hotel after our original room was no longer available and we were disappointed to say the least. our bed had a brown stain on it, the walls were dirty, the couch broken and the according to the tag the pillows should have been replaced more than a year ago(December 2012). our bathroom...

The room had everything you needed and was big enough for 2. Self contained so check your dishes before you use them as all of ours were dirty. Huge Bed and nice bathroom (small) but hot water does run out after 1 shower so had to wait 10min in-between. close to transport and walking distance to everything. use the light... More

Costa D'ora was the worst place I have ever stayed in. It was cramped, there was no privacy (we were put on ground level, despite their description as including a private balcony), and it was mouldy and dirty. I had to go to Woolies as soon as we arrived, so that we could pick up cleaning supplies and disinfectant -... More

Hi there, we stay in this apartment for 13 nights (firstly wanna stay just 6 nights) and it was really lovely stay. Staff is very friendly, beach is 3 minutes by foot, supermarkets are cca 10 minutes away and the promenade to evening markets are also 7-10 minutes by foot. The apartment is well spaced - living room with couch... More

We booked this accommodation via Wotif as their website says Costa D'Ora has wi-fi available in all rooms. Having internet access was a minimum requirement for our stay, but when asked on arrival reception made excuses about it being an external company and was pay per hour. The in room wi-fi signal was extremely weak and could not connect over... More

Stayed here last October 2013 but haven't had the chance to post my review. But I just had to say how excellent our stay was. We stayed for 5 nights for $79 a night for a standard room! Such a bargain!! There was my husband, me and my 2 girls (4 and 7 yrs old). Our king bed was just... More

I chose this place because its weekly rate was considerably less than those surrounding and for its decent facilities. I was not disappointed upon arrival. Myself and +1 both enjoyed our apartment, comfortable bed, Foxtel with nearly all channels, all utensils provided. Did have to buy toilet paper from the local supermarket though (about 10mins walk). We were very happy... More

We stayed here for a week, while on holiday in Surfers Paradise. The location is excellent (approx 10 minutes walk from the center of Surfers Paradise, 4 minutes walk from the beach). The price to stay there was competitive and not overpriced like a few of the holiday apartments in Surfers. The staff were very helpful and friendly, and were... More
