Our family checked into three apartments. Ours was the better although dirty and the couches smelled like wet dog. There was also no plug so we couldn't bath my son. As reception is only open til 5 there is nothing you can do if you need anything. My sisters apartment was far worse. The bed needed to go to the... More

I checked in....5 minutes later I checked out. This was one of the worst hotel/apartments I have ever seen as you can see from the pics. DUST everywhere. There is a fake plant in the corner of room 5, which had not been dusted in about 3 years. The hallway stunk. It was dark and gloomy. Mould in the bottom... More

had many issues trying to book in to Tradewinds, finally when we arrived the lady on reception was not very pleasant- almost like we were annoying her by staying there. the corridor stunk like an ashtray, which filtered into the room. the beds were horrible and the pillows felt like they were full of rocks. i would not recommend this...

We stayed with some friends, they booked using a coupon. Upon arrival we were directed to a room that was not cleaned. Towels on chairs, bed pillows and dirt on the couch, dishes on the counter etc. A trip to the registration desk and we were changed to another 2 bed apartment. It was cleaner, but still very tired looking.... More

This was our fifth time as a family staying at Surfers Tradewinds and we keep coming back because we love it. The pool is right in the middle of the complex and is just great. Our two kids, Mike and Amy, can play all day in the pool while we sit on our balcony and watch them, if not on... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the size of our unit, and although we were initially disappointed that we got the ground floor, we weren't for too long, as it had many advantages such as very close to the pool BBQ area, and super close to underground parking. The room itself was well laid out, and had extras that you normally... More

Looking for accommodation took us a while but we finally decided on staying at Surfers Tradewinds. The location to Broadbeach shopping precinct with restaurants and facilities was perfect, just a short walking distance. Jupiter's Casino is just nearby with Pacific fair, the best shopping experience around, beside the casino. the beach was great for the kids and just 100m away.... More

After such a horrible week at enderley gardens, this place was nice. Our room 17 was spacious, clean and we were warm at night. Relaxing no fuss stay and the spa is amazing!! Only complaint we have is the onsite manager locked the pool area one night before 8 pm when closing time is 930 so in this case we... More

Great manager, great location with excellent access to the beach. The kids loved the heated pool and we enjoyed the many restaurants in the area. My recommendation is if you,the wife and kids need to escape try Tradewinds. Kids swim and and the wife and I reconnected, long overdue. Our son mike and daughter Amy just couldn't stop smiling.
