From the reviews on this site, (which I checked after I had booked the room) had all stated that this was the worst place that they had ever stayed at, I would definitely disagree with that. I didn't expect anything flash with how cheap the room was, (twin room for two adults) but I was pleasantly surprised. The room was... More

The accommodation is very basic and dated, needs upgrading with paint/ new mattresses / patio furniture and the hallways could do with new carpets to make it more friendly and welcoming, even just a bit of artwork to brighten the place up... But the views that we had for a two bedroomed apartment were great one of the river side... More

I stayed in a one bedroom unit with beach and hinterland views, it was very clean and in a great location. I visited a couple years ago and found the rooms a bit run-down. They have definitely been busy with renovations - the room I stayed in was modern and had everything I needed for a long weekend visit. It's... More

The room was awesome loved staying at the gold coast. The beach resort is the best one to stay at the gold coast especially since it is directly next to the beach. Highly recommended. The price is well worth it. The place was very tidy and it was the perfect size for 2 people in 1 room.

Stayed for one night. Check in was easy. Room looked like it has been freshened up with new furniture and a paint. Though shower still has black hairs on wall from last people. Went to use spa and only half the spa worked and no heat. Went to sauna and a used 'feminine' product was on the floor. Then at... More

This resort is great money for value, beachfront location and within walking distance to the heart of surfers paradise. The parking is great, you can park in a secure basement car park and park wherever. The guy who checked us in was very friendly and welcoming. We just stayed for the night and the unit we stayed in looked like... More

Do not stay here!!! We booked a king suite through booking.com. It promised a king bed, air con, balcony with ocean or hinterland views. Reality was a room that smelled of vomit, damp carpet, mould all over the window, a sliding door that took forever to open which led to a balcony that was dirty with warning signs all over... More

Spa was cold,pool area a disgrace with broken and ripped chairs,restaurant not open.This was lower in rating... More

Decided to stay here to save a 2hr drive home and it allowed a second day at Seaworld. I would say this is one step up from a backpackers resort, or is it? Maybe a back packers would be better. Room was clean and bed was very comfortable and position is good, right on the esplanade opposite the beach. Place... More
