Ok the reviews you may have read are not all truly correct. Yes, this place is not a 5 star. An older apartment which does need improvement, but is worth the stay & money.The swimming pool /BBQ area was clean. I stayed in 7C unit (fan operated, not air con) which faced out towards the sea, great sea breeze while... More

Maybe the rest of the place isn't much better, but definitely don't let them put you in apartment 12A. At the time of booking, in October, one of the admittedly few air conditioned apartments was requested and agreed upon- we didn't get one and there was neither an explanation nor an apology. Management seemed genuinely apologetic about the condition of... More

Absolutely the most horrible service you have ever had. I was presented with a below standard room which stank to high heaven. Maybe a $50 a night backpacker room would have been better than this. Absolutely NO refund offered and almost immediately became unfriendly when making the complaint. Beware as even if you cancel after booking they will charge your... More

We booked the room through bookings.com the picture they used is nothing like the room we were given, room 8A was what we were given. On check in I stupidly paid for our 8 days stay without inspecting the room first, big mistake! As the reception refused to give us a refund. Each apartment is individually owned, we were unlucky...

We booked this even though most of the reviews were not good as we couldn't afford anything too expensive. We just kept our fingers crossed. We had seen the photos and we ended up with 8A - the one with the terrible vanity. All reviews are true, very tired and in need of a spruce up but not a lot... More

This accommodation tower is a mixed bag. The location is good and the views from apartments 5B. 6B (etc) are lovely. The rooms are a good size and our one bedroom unit had an ensuite and another bathroom and separate toilet. Lots of morning sun on our long balcony and an outside pool and spa and a well appointed covered... More

Staff were friendly for the limited time I saw them and located in good position for Southport area. Rooms are old and when told I had the refurbished room I expected more. New furniture and paint but that is about it. Could put more effort into cleaning as bathroom had hair in shower and toothpaste down vanity cupboard. Just didn't... More

The apartment had underground parking. The apartment itself was a bit old but was so spacious. There was two bathrooms for the one bedroom apartment that we stayed in. The verandah runs the whole way along the apartment and has magnificent views of the water. It had air conditioning in the bedroom and living area. The bathroom did have some... More

Located in a fantastic position! Central to everything a family would need. The building is a bit tired though and needs a coat of paint but has secure underground parking and was perfect for a weekend family getaway.
