My friends and I had a short break at peninsula and stayed in 2 bedroom deluxe apartment 6f once again, this unit is the cleanest and most well kept modern unit I have ever stayed in. Everything close by and straight across the road for a swim in the surf. Views of the beach are incredible to wake up to.... More

The Peninsula is a great resort in a great location. Very close to the beach, shops, restaurants, nightlife but still far enough to not be disturbed. The room was fairly clean and very spacious. My only gripe is that the curtains were dirty, the bedroom furniture was very dated and the balcony doors were hard to open and lock. There... More

The views, amenity and features of the building make this resort one of the best in the Gold Coast. Good value for money, highly recommend the D units as you get 3 balconies facing the beach on the east, north and the hinterlands on the west.

We thoroughly enjoyed our mini break here, location location location...perfect. Our apartment requests were granted and reception staff are fantastic, you can tell they love their jobs, it shows and it makes you feel very welcome. Any issues with our apartment were sorted promptly and the complex has everything you need for a perfect break, thank you!

This is the second time we have stayed here. Last time was in Sep 13, but I think I forgot to write a review for that stay. We stayed here for 3 nights during the school holidays. I was more than happy with this apartment for the price we paid. It was a nice 2 bedroom, ocean/Cavill Ave view. The... More

We stayed at the Peninsula Surfers for 3 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment. The views north and south of the beach were fantastic. Waking up to a hinterland view was awesome too. Restaurants, cafe and shops are close by. There is also a patrolled beach across the road. The apartments are very spacious with fully equipped kitchen and laundry.... More

Management of the building really need to improve. Our family has regularly holidayed in the building for over 20 years. Checked in today and noticed changes. Was asked to give credit card for just an "imprint" at check in- told nothing would be charged except for damage etc as we had paid for our stay already.That is completely reasonable except... More

I have stayed at the breakfree peninsula two times. I have enjoyed both stays at this hotel. Located on the quiet side of the gold coast strip. Very close to the beach. Great views from the two bedroom apartment. Room was clean with great tiled floors. Kitchen was well stocked. Two swimming pools but only one is heated. A great... More

We stayed here for four nights in March, 2014. I can't fault any aspect of the resort. The apartment was very nice and spacious, the pools were lovely and the location is fantastic--just a short walk to Cavill Ave and across the street from the beach. But the real gem at this resort is the customer service. The staff go... More

Mum and I stayed here about a week ago and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, but only because, after being shown to the first apartment which was absolutely disgusting, we were shown another couple of apartments that were alot better and finally moved into one of those. We were only two people and could have paid for a one bedroom, but... More
