I can't speak highly enough of Ocean Plaza resort, having stayed their with my parents for twenty years, and them before me another twenty. It is truly the epitome of what the lifestyle in Coolangatta should be, relaxed, laid back and laconic. I would recommend this highly to anyone for an affordable and homely hotel. Excellent tennis courts, Gym facilities... More

Stayed here for a long weekend. Great central place to stay at. Units were spacious with lovely beach views. All the stuff you needed were in the unit, and nice in clean and apart from a little bit of maintenance such as fixing the shower so could adjust height you could not fault.

Excellent position.. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Location - so central and easy walking to shops, eateries and the beach. 5 mins to the airport. You really don't need a car for a short stay. Our apartment was a bit "tired". Carpet was old and stained. Lounge was old and a bit lumpy. For a 4 1/2 star establishment the... More

We stayed here for the first part of the winter school holidays. It was a very good deal with a $10 off per night discount by liking Ocean Plaza on Facebook. We booked directly last minute.
