We stayed for three nights in mid Feb - Cyclone Marcia time - when the weather was ordinary. The unit had a huge master bedroom with a comfy king bed, fantastic views up the Broadwater, and air con, TV, and a big en suite. The living and dining areas are also generous, with great views and air con, and (useful... More

The apartment was large but only the master bedroom had air-conThe other two bedrooms had portable fans that were very noisy so the children couldn't use them.The fridge was at least 20 yrs old and the showers were not up to scratch so I showered wearing thongs.Will not be staying again.

Thank you for your review we are extremely disappointed to have a negative report after so many positive ones. Your comment in regard to the shower is also surprising given the amount of positive reviews in regards to cleanliness, had this guest reported her dissatisfaction to reception we could have rectified this easily as all our bathroom are in excellent...

This is the best place that you could possibly stay on the Gold Coast. We originally stayed at this resort 10 years ago and decided that we would return to celebrate New Years Eve on the coast - we were not disappointed! The staff bend over backwards to help you, and always greet you with a smile. It certainly felt... More

Just spent 8 nights in a 2 bedroom unit. Whilst the unit is in original condition it was clean and very spacious. The location is excellent...proximity to tedder ave/ beach / seaworld etc. Amenities - Gym / Pool very good. Great option for anyone wanting a unit away from the hustle and bustle of surfers.

Fantastic 5 star resort. Stayed with hubby and 3 children in a 3 bedroom apartment. Really was a home away from home. Was right away from the hustle and bustle and still close enough to everything. Only complaint please put screens on the windows. Been on the 17th floor and wanting to open windows to let a breeze in couldn't... More

Not much more to say other than ideal location with fantastic broad water views. Rooms are awesome and well priced. Great people on site and would recommend to all. They say Tedder Avne is the best place on the coast to eat and I was very impressed with it as well. Not the same crowds you see in Surfers thankfully... More

My husband and I have just spent four nights staying at Oceans and were very impressed. We loved the South Port end of Surfers, its much nicer and not so hustle and bustle like Surfers Paradise. We did some research on accommodation as we wanted to be walking distance from the beach and restaurants and this apartment seemed to suit... More

After a two night stay here I am depressed to leave! The apartment is the most beautiful I have ever stayed in. Very spacious, clean and modern. The location is perfect, a very short walk to Tedder Av. With two young children I booked this apartment initially for its advertised indoor heated pool. We were all disappointed to get in... More

We visited the Gold Coast in August - we've been there many times, but this time stayed in Main Beach, which is the northern end of SP, on the way to Seaworld. This is more a 'residential' area, less commercial, much quieter, and definitely the place of choice for more mature couples and their friends! Ocean Sands is a 4+... More
