We were looking for cheap accommodation not far from the World’s; the managers couldn't do enough for us. Secure parking, large pool, directly across the road from the Broadwater and one of the best parks that I have ever seen. The kids played for hours as we used the bbq facilities. There were lots of restaurants within a few minutes’... More

Went there early December 2010, arrive way before midday and they allowed us to check in early. Good value, we got 4 nights for 3 night price. We got the one bedroom, with queen size bed, and there's sofa bed in the lounge. It is a bit far from Surfer Paradise beach, but close to the Australia Fair Shopping Centre.... More

We stayed in a 2 level apartment in the peak of summer. Aircon was situated on the bottom level with only 1 fan in the top floor, despite the top having 2 bedrooms. There was no way of cooling the top floor, even with the AC being on full blast (wouldn't it make more sense to have the AC on... More

Air conditioning was on the top floor but flowed through downstairs. The pool was on 2 levels and there was a nice outdoor spa. Location was excellent, right on the... More
