We requested a room higher up when we booked, and they certainly delivered. We had views over the beach, over Coolangatta itself and over Tweed. The room was modern and spacious and the staff were lovely. This is now where we are staying in the future! Amazing holiday!

Stayed in a three bedroom apartment with two other couples over Easter. Couldn't be happier, staff were very obliging, wish I remembered the name of the girl at reception, she was lovely. We were on the 19th floor, views were sensational and noise was never an issue. Just park your car and walk! Can't wait to go back. One small... More

These apartments are in a great location, beach front, with great views. They are comfortable, with need of a bit updating. The problem with them is the noise. There is a pub below, the Coolangatta Hotel, which has live music and is very noisy. From about midnight to 4am the drunks spill out into the street and scream and yell.... More

The construction should be all finished by August 2014, which will be bring Woolworths, shops and more restaurants right to our... More

We spent a week here and it was fantastic. The apartment was spacious and clean and very comfortable. Units are also very sound proof from neighbouring quests which is a plus. Great views, friendly staff, clean and central location. Would stay here again for sure.
