4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Stayed here for 1 week with a friend in 2 bedroom apartment. Was very modern, clean and spacious. Very well equipped with full kitchen and laundry facilities. Lovely large balcony accessed from bedroom and lounge. Good location with sea views walking distance to beach, bars and shops. Staff were friendly and helpful. Good value for money would recommend.

Quick drive to/from the airport. Greeted on arrival - staff was a little rude. Very outdated room. Lovely views, though. Sadly, no air conditioning which was a major issue in November, as it was extremely hot. Shower would stay very hot for at least two minutes, then go completely cold with barely any pressure. Beds were not comfortable. Specifically ask... More

Tweed and Coolangatta are one of our favourite places to holiday, now we have found the Rainbow Bay resort, we will be back. Small things like... More

we stayed at four different locations around Brisbane/Coolangatta/Tweed and found this place the best by far. It's not beachfront but has many other benefits, spotliss, decent pool, spa, quiet rooms for a good night sleep, bbq area, and fantastic available managers. Spacious and secure parking was important for us so this was great. The locailty is great for getting around... More

Greg and Felicity take good care of the place. We had unit 10 which was great as it had a good view of the surf. Pools lovely and bbq area nice and clean. I would definitely return. Good times. The only annoying thing was feeling guilty about getting in the lift after swimming. Really, you want to get nice and... More
