Yet again we were blown away with the most perfect stay to date.. Although we had a stuff up with rooms to begin with, we were placed on floor 8 room 34 with the most magnificent views of paradise :) originally we were to stay on floor 19 in an apartment we have stayed in before ( also amazing )...

Each unit is owned separately, the unit we stayed in is on one of the upper floors. 3 bedrooms, 7 people easily. Plenty of lounge and kitchen space. Comfortable modern equipment. Pool area closed off one area due to the renovation going on, but there are warning of this. Fast lifts, plenty of parking ( for an older building!). Great... More

We stayed here for Easter school holidays. The location is fantastic! Walk to Cavill Ave, the (flagged) beach is just across the pedestrian crossing, and 5 minutes to Australia Fair Shopping Centre. We stayed in a two bedroom superior apartment. It was clean, spacious and well presented. Unfortunately, it didn't have air conditioning, and, even in April, was quite hot... More

Have stayed here many times on holidays to Surfers and its always an enjoyable experience. The rooms are always clean with comfortable beds and great views. Price is reasonable for Surfers so do yourself a favour and check them out on your next stay.

Overall a good holiday, apartment quiet spacious, only problem was extremely hot inside. When there was a nice sea breeze it wasn't too bad, but no breeze was stifling. fans in the room were not very efficient, one in our room didn't work properly, they did give us another that helped. Management offered another room 3 bed but at an... More

Me and the guys stayed here for 3 nights whilst celebrating my bucks night. Place was great. Massive rooms, cold air con, balconies and friendly staff. I loved it. They were very accommodating to 15 guys staying there. The pool is great, tennis court is fantastic. Great location and good value. This would be my pick when I stay there... More

I recently spent 3 nights in a 2 bed apartment with my husband and 2 kids. Our apartment was spotlessly clean, the beds were all good quality, the water pressure in the showers was fantastic (I hate a dodgy shower!). The pool area is brilliant with a spa, kids pool and a larger pool, very well maintained and clean. Great... More

We stay at Focus each year in July. They are nice appartments with spectacular panoramic views of the beach. The block is older but many of the appartments have been renovated. The process of renovation was going on during our last visit which was a bit inconvenient. Several restaurants within walking distance. Great place to stay.

It became apparent on our first day there was no air-conditioning, on questioning management it was mentioned due to the age of the building (over 40 years old) they could not accommodate for this. On departure, I questioned the receptionist on this again who advised they do have air conditioning in some rooms...and it is a problem for them. My... More

Your review is appreciated. At Focus we have some apartments with air conditioning but not all. It is at the owner's discretion if they decide to install air conditioning in their apartments and most guests will request an apartment with air conditioning and we endeavour to give our guests all their requests if possible. We have certainly experienced a very... More

The service in this Apartment was terrible. Unreasonable managers that charge for items that are missing prior to using room without consent. Security staff very rude to teenagers and not reactive to entering apartments after hours.

Please see my previous response to your review - We have been looking after Schoolies for many years and our reputation is second to none. We provide a caring and professional service to them and our security is well regarded with the Schoolies. I... More
