Paid for 4 nights, could not even stay one night as I could not securely lock my room (faulty security lock, security key also missing from one set of keys, and the balcony sliding door also fell off). Manager not responding to after hours calls where I requested a room swap, when she finally did appear (returning from dinner it... More

Comfortable 1 bedroom apartment. Location on Gold Coast Highway, so traffic can be a bit noisy on the weekends. Walking distance to Australia Fair and the Broadwater. Awesome swimming pool with plenty of room to relax in the sun. Good Location if you just want to relax and are not fussy in going anywhere.

We have stayed here twice. We had a unit on the second floor and found it very noisy. The room was clean and comfortable. We arrived after hours - only just - and had to phone for the combination to get in and find our room key. It worked okay, however, as a resort, management should be there a little... More

Broken lifts, rude management, poor service, not worth the trouble. Only good thing was leaving. Lacks in cleaniness. Also noticed fire extinguishers out of date. When speaking to managers also had the impression they were intoxicated. Only good thing about the place is the view. It may be cheap but you defintely get what you pay for. A complete overhaul...

I was lucky enough to be placed on the 5th floor (of six floors). The self contained unit was clean and well appointed. Whilst the noise of the traffic was, at times, distracting, nothing could take away from the fabulous view of the broad water. The self contained kitchen was small but efficient and perfect for my needs. I loved... More

Very nice rooms. The living room and the balcony were very spacious and the room was clean and tidy. Toilets were clean as well and the washing machine and dryer were perfectly working. Good location for families, very quiet at night. We recommend to rent a car (if you don't have one) and it's only 20 minutes drive from the... More

Whilst I did not stay at Rays Resort with my family (I was there on business) I can definitely recommend the resort and the location for families with young children. The main reason I say this is that the Gold Coast does family vacation tourism better than any other location I've seen. Obviously there's the Theme Parks but in terms... More

Stayed here for 2 weeks and would never recommend or stay here again. You cannot sit on your balcony in peace due to the busiest road in Qld being just outside. The pool was ok but didn't look like it had been cleaned in a while. The stench of cigarette smoke everywhere was terrible. I have stayed in cheap hotels... More
