We couldn't decide between Soul or The Marriott so did a few days at both. This is apartment style rather than resort style, but still with a full service (apartments made up each day). We had a plunge pool apartment but unfortunately it was too cold to use it! However it would have been fantastic in the summer and you... More

Soul hotel did not (mostly) disappoint. We were hoping for a comfortable, luxury mini-break (3 nights) in Surfers Paradise, and Soul met our criteria more than adequately. We had a 1-bedroom, ocean-view apartment on the 25th floor. The apartment was large and extremely well furnished, with two large balconies with uninterrupted views of the glistening Surfers Paradise beach. I don't... More

My husband surprised me for our wedding anniversary with a relaxing 5 days at Soul. I say this is one of the best stays on the GC because of the following reasons: 1. SPACIOUS!! This one bedroom apartment was seriously bigger than some peoples houses!! It was a home away from home and better than some tiny hotel room with... More

We had a 3 bed sky view room on lvl48 and loved it. Only wish we could have stayed longer. Reception was warm and friendly. Room was amazing. View even better! Room service was quick though probably a little overpriced.

My sister and I chose this hotel for our parent's 28th wedding anniversary, also their first time in Gold Coast. We arrived before 9am and were surprised that our room was already available for us. We got the 2 bedroom apartment with a plunge pool on level 4. Morgan, who assisted with our check-in, was very helpful and assured our... More

I honestly don't know how this hotel can be considered 5 stars, as it doesn't compare to the other apartments/hotels I have previously stayed at on the Gold Coast. The apartments are very small, we had a 3 bedroom apartment for 6 people, the main bedroom being quite big, the other two bedrooms too small to even fit our suitcases... More

I recently stayed at Soul the night before my best friends wedding, which was also at the hotel.
