We stayed at Ocean Plaza for five nights over Christmas, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our unit was on the 16th floor and had great views over the beach. The unit was spacious, well furnished and the kitchen was well equipped. Often the images you see on the website of a unit are nothing like the unit you end up getting.... More

We just spent a week at the Ocean Plaza and were pleasantly surprised by our accommodation. Our room was spacious and while it had not been fully renovated, it was clean and tidy. Our view was amazing and the location to everything, including the beach, shops and restaurants was excellent. Parking was also a breeze. Would definitely stay here again.

We have just had six nights at Ocean Plaza and wish we could have had more. We were on the 12th floor and had beautiful views. We had a 2 bedroom apartment and it was very clean and spacious and had everything we needed. It;s in such a good position with shops underneath and restaurants so close..Will definitely stay there... More

We were on the 15th floor with an amazing view. 2 bedroom apartment was very spacious, bigger then most other apartments we have stayed at. From the outside I was concerned with what looked like an old fashioned high rise but I was happily suprised with the style and condition of the interior. Carpark is a little tricky but thats...

Our family had 2 x 3 bedroom apartments on the 21st floor for our "family Christmas" celebration. Our family flew and drove in from everywhere for a 4 day weekend. The facilities were fantastic, the view amazing, the rooms very clean and the staff were very friendly with nothing being a problem for them. The location for restaurants, the beach... More

We sincerely want to thank you for staying with us. Reunions seem to be very popular this year as many families find it easier to relax at a resort rather than hosting at home. We appreciate your review. More

We stayed in a two bed apartment on the 16th floor. The view was amazing. The apartment naturally stays quite cool, so we didn't use the air conditioning much at all. It was comfortable and spacious. Some of the fitting were a little older, but many things had been recently refreshed. We've stayed in many self-catering apartments, but this apartment... More

I stayed in a very large re-furbished apartment with beautiful decor and ambience. This is my fourth trip to Coolangatta and this apartment surpassed all the other resort apartments. It is very convenient for grocery shopping with direct access to Aldi's and Woolworths. The reception staff were all very friendly and helpful.
