We recently stayed at the Ocean Plaza for four days and couldn't be happier with the hotel, location and nearby shops and cafes. The view from our room was beautiful! The staff was very helpful and a pleasant to deal with. This is our second stay at the Ocean Plaza and I would highly recommend it as the perfect holiday... More

We enjoyed our weekend at Ocean Plaza. We were in a two bedroom apartment on the north side of the building on the 18th floor with great views north toward Surfers Paradise. The sunset views were beautiful. The apartment could do with a touch up of the painting and some of the fittings (especially the shower screen in the ensuite)... More

We were on the 8th floor with a great view of Coolangatta Beach. Unit was great as usual and anything was not a problem with the great staff who work there. In fact so much so that we have now purchased a unit in Ocean Plaza to go & live in.

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
