Whilst staying in this beautiful apartment we were treated very well by the reception staff. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment which was modern and very clean. The views were exceptional from the balcony and the apartments were located across the road from shops and restaurants which were everywhere. If you wanted a local mall they had a small... More

We stayed here in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 14th floor for two weeks – it was our home away from home. We found all the staff to be friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome. First impressions of our apartment were ‘wow’. So much space and with a magnificent view to the ocean directly over the road.... More

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights here and from the moment we arrived it just couldn't go correctly. At 5.30pm there was no reception staff (never is at that time), and when we did get to our room another guests luggage had been delivered to our room by error. Of the 3 clocks in the room none showed... More

This is probably the best place we have ever stayed in on a family holiday. We stayed in a 3 bed apartment on level 13. Incredible views, great facilities - gym, swimming pool and movie theatre. It was very relaxing, the reception staff were very helpful. We booked activities through reception who were able to get us a small discount... More

This apartment in Kirra beach is outstanding. The decorations look as though Shayna Blaze from the Block has visited. The rooms are well laid out. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment and got a reasonable rate through Hotel.com. The kitchen is equipped very well. Even has a wok burner on the stove the bathroom s are magnificent.

Pitstopping here on the way to somewhere else and selected based on location. Turns out made the right decision. The apartment is well laid out and the location enabled us to walk to Coolangatta with a nice stroll and no stress. There are a large number of little great cafés around and you can choose a different one each meal.
