I have stayed at the Ocean Plaza on a number of occasions. I have always found the staff to be friendly and helpful. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the shopping centre within the building had been upgraded (without losing my favourite dress shop!). The unit itself was spacious and the view as great.

We had a great stay at Ocean Plaza Resort. We had a 3 bdrm apartment for 3 x couples, we had a bathroom each, amazing views, and everything we needed. Perfect with a shopping mall and the Coolangatta Hotel directly underneath Ocean Plaza Resort. Loads of fantastic eating places within close proximity. The food and service at the Coolangatta Surfclub... More

All of our staff would like to thank you for your review. We have to agree with the location, as Coolangatta has it all, with the best beaches on the Gold Coast, entertainment, great food and all within walking distance. The recent changes at the Strand Mall has been a real boost to the area and is so convenient to... More

Hi My husband and I have just spent two weeks at ocean plaza Coolangatta, and have been going there for 15 yrs, but this year was so disappointing, due to quiet a few issues and would suggest that other people going to Coolangatta could find somewhere else to stay that was way better. And when I have tried to address... More

Ocean Plaza always appreciates reviews, good or bad. We took all suggestions and have made some changes. As we did explain with window cleaners, we have balustrades and windows cleaned on a monthly basis since we are right on the ocean. We posted signs in our lobby and in our lifts explaining they were on site, and we discussed with... More

My husband and I have just returned from a week here. I asked for a apartment up high and looking towards the east and rainbow bay. We got an apartment on the 16th floor looking exactly where I wanted. We had great views and no noise from the street or the pub below us. It is central to everything and... More

Ocean Plaza is a great resort for a family or couple wanting to get away and relax. Being close to the beach and supermarket is an absolute bonus for families while those without kids will appreciate being close to restaurants and bars.

Great restaurants, beaches and shopping right at our door. i also love the 2 x 18 hole golf courses located only 10 minutes away at the Coolangatta / Tweed golf course. We hope you return soon!

Our group of six women stayed in a three bedroom apartment on the 22nd floor which had awesome views both out to sea and over the hinterland. The apartment was spacious with a large kitchen and balcony. The hotel has secure parking underneath and direct access to the local shopping centre from one of the floors. There are restaurants and... More

Apartment 9 on the 4th floor is a spacious one with a full kitchen, comfortable open plan lounge and dining area and a huge balcony.

Our unit on 14th floor is wonderful, exactly as was shown on the Internet. All shops, restaurants, cafes, beaches etc., at our door step. If you wish to drive to Tweed Heads or Surfers Paradise it is only 30 minutes approx. each way.. Hubby and I love it. We will be back.
