The "Sun City" was really flash and we were impressed the moment we walked in. The pools were amazing but a bit inconsistent with whether they were warm or not so warm. This was important to us as the weather was fairly cold at the time and a warm pool or spa was what we needed! The apartment view was... More

Really good for the price. 21st floor, ocean view. Very clean and comfortable 1br apartment. Nice helpful front desk staff. Easy walk into Cavill Ave. Not a thing to complain about, except maybe they could heat the indoor pool a tad more in the middle of winter.

Stayed from 13th July to 18th and had a wonderful time. We had a 2 bedroom ocean view room on the 30th floor which was magnificent.

We stay here every year with a large group for the GC marathon weekend. All the apartments vary as they are privately owned. Overall they are fine. Some have interesting layouts. They have great views and the building is centrally located without being in the heart of noisy Surfers Paradise.
