Great location, walking distance to almost everything in Surfers Paradise, very outdated building (they have started renovations though) it does need the renovations. The room was clean but, in between the lounges was super dirty, dining room chairs had fabric hanging from the bottom. There was 4 of us and we all got a rash we are still trying to... More

Great to hear you enjoyed your time at Focus again. The views are amazing from our north facing two bedroom apartments and we are seeing whales at this time of year heading up the coast. These apartments are lovely and warm in this winter weather too as they catch all the sun. Our receptionists and staff always do their best... More

I had no problem with this apartment as we booked 2 x 3 bedrooms No 54 on the 13th & No 50 on the 12th floor. Most reviews seem to show that this apartment is the perfect one BUT IT IS NOT. Cleanliness We are not very particular about the cleanliness as we would rate the cleanliness as so-so and... More

We are disappointed by your negative review especially since we have been emailing about this problem for the past 4 days. Unfortunately damages such as the broken shelf in the shower and the ripped/burnt bed runner have to be replaced at your expense as the shelf was installed only the day prior to your arrival and the bed runners in...

After scrolling through many apartment reviews we chose to stay at the Focus Apartments and never, once, regretted our decision. We took the advice given in a number of reviews and opted for a superior room with an ocean view - we were not disappointed. We could see the ocean and the river. We stayed in room 112 on the...

Thank you for your review. Unit 112 is on a high floor with gorgeous views to the ocean and also the river and mountain views towards the hinterland. Our facilities are excellent as we are on an acre of land on The Esplanade so there is plenty of room for the kids. We have tennis racquets, table tennis bats and... More

I had a really great experience at Focus Apartments. The first thing I liked about it was that it was close to Surfer's Paradise. This meant that the main street and all the shopping was perhaps a 5-10 minute walk along with the night markets held on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. Secondly, the beach was conveniently across the road, which... More
