We have stayed at Soul twice now. Every staff member you meet (even in the lift) are friendly and helpful. We have a 6 year old daughter and the pools and proximity to the beach are second to none. Close to all shops and entertainment, you don't even have to get in your car. Will definitely come back.

We just stayed at Soul for 5 nights over the last week for a school holidays break. The staff are kind and helpful, the apartments are airy, modern and comfortable and the views are amazing. We had a two bedroom with balconies overlooking the amazing surf. The pool area was a bit windy so we didn't do much swimming, but... More

I stayed here recently on a 3 day stay with my 5 year old son. We were met at the front entrance by a very friendly staff member who directed us to reception on the second floor. We were promptly given our room keys and given instructions on where to park and how to find our room. We found a... More

Booked the higher floor rooms, I think above level 40, huge difference from last time. Very luxurious and just felt far larger even know we were in a 2brm this time and 3brm last time. No... More

I loved our stay at Soul just because the apartment was so beautiful and luxurious. It was clean and had absolutely everything one would need at an apartment.Located right in the heart of Surfers Paradise, the location is perfect, a two minute walk to the beach and nearby restaurants. Although the apartments include a pool and spa, we spent all... More

I stayed with my family here for 4 nights, the location is right in the heart of Surfers Paradise, one of the main reason we chose this hotel since they have plenty of food option and beach across the road We drove to Goldcoast from Sunshine Coast, when we arrived at the hotel, the reception is on 2nd floor so...

Very nice design. We stayed in a three bedroom ocean view apartment on the seventh floor. For so low views were decent, my gran is scared of heights, so try stay higher up if you can! Very sleek and modern, staff were helpful with all our requests. Matches for a birthday cake and a needle for a dress disaster. Only... More
