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 Also noticed fire extinguishers out of date.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

This was my second stay at the Rays. My first room was quite acceptable - clean & tidy. My second stay however is a little more disappointing. The room is very musty (even though it is peak holiday season and has obviously been used recently), some of the chairs/furniture have a old & dirty smell, and the carpet/furnishings are very...
