We found the rooms very spacious for 2 adults and 2 children,They were clean and it was great to have a full kitchen.Beds were very comfortable.The pool and spa were lovely.I could not fault the staff's service.I booked on line and inadvertently booked 2 apartments by mistake.They were kind enough to refund one booking.I would definitely stay here again.

We only stayed 1 night as a stopover. Would not have liked to have stayed any longer than that. Rooms basic at best, bathroom dated and you needed to hold shower head in place. Kitchen was again dated and the remnants of food from previous guests on the cooker was a little off putting, thankfully we didn't need to use... More

Nice enough, comfortable enough for the price you pay. Location is OK (5 mins drive from Australia fair). The biggest negative was the check in process, which was very inconvenient & unnecessarily difficult. I arrived around 5PM on a Saturday & found that the Reception was closed as they only open 9AM - 12PM on Saturday & Sunday (the busiest... More

Nice and clean,quiet apartment.roomy. Good facilities. Friendly, helpful staff. Easy access to parking. Close to shops, beach, restaurants but far enough away to not have to deal with the schoolies. Enjoyed my stay.

This place has the basic amenities with only 2 Foxtel Channels but the bed was comfortable. The hot water seemed to take forever to come through on the budget type shower head and the cupboards in the bathroom had a bad stench when opened, like water rot in the wood. There had been only 1 small cake of soap supplied,... More

This resort is centrally situated being across the road from the waterpark and within walking distance from shops and restaurants. Rooms are very comfortable with a small kitchette, tv, aircon and ensuite. Plenty of car parking. A pool, bbq, spa and half size tennise court. The furnishings are modest, my only criticism would be that they could use a fresh... More

Staff were so helpful, friendly and welcoming. 2br unit was basic but everything (fridge, kitchen utensils etc,) was there. Rooms were decorated by a clown (red front door, yellow walls, blue doors, dark blue carpet, red furniture, turquoise furniture), but it was our base and sleep place and price was good. They did provide some towels but there was no... More

The staff were very helpful and accommodating. The rooms are not great in decor, or furnishings but we only needed a base and somewhere to stay. It had a cooker fridge microwave etc so all we need really. Shower had great pressure. There was parking and a pool. Close to surfers paradise and SeaWorld. If you don't care about room... More

The booking was made on my behalf by a travel agent. As per the other reviewers, the complex is outdated, dirty and very uncomfortable. As a result, I checked out after one night. Definitely not recommended!

I stay there with my wife and 16 month son and found it outdated .It was old and in need of a renovation as the kitchen was falling a part as was fixtures in the apartment. Service was okay and restaurants we're walking distance but not all were open at night .
