We stayed at San Mateo for four nights at the end of Jan-start of Feb. We loved it. The apartments were a fair size and clean, some of the other reviews on here are unreasonable you have to expect a little dust in places, iv stayed at plenty of 5 star resorts to know that no one is perfect.

We have visited the San Mateo a number of times over the last five years and generally have had great experiences. However, there were a few significant let downs this time around. The underlying issues on this visit were cleaning and maintenance. It was awesome to see new washing machines in the apartments - a great step up from previously.... More

Very unclean, broken leg on chair, toilet seat broken benches had streak marks all over them, sink had grime in it. fridge had mould along top and dripped everywhere under the freezer.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment for just over a week and found it very comfortable. It was very quiet, we had a partial sea view from our balcony and the beach was only a block away. The apartment had everything we needed, including a washing machine and dryer. I wouldn't describe is as a luxury apartment, but then... More

Advertised as a 4 star luxury apartment hotel!! My assessment 2 stars only. Unattended reception; keys left in secure box. No additional linen for my colleague for his bed. No fan in internal bathroom. Some lights not functioning. AC remote batteries dead (replaced with my own). Very tight corridor. Stairs (fire escape) allowed one access only to outside - not... More

Good location across road from beach, 10min walk to broadbeach mall (15min with kids). We were on the 7th floor and the 2 bedroom apartment was very spacious for a family of 5. Pool and spa were great. Would thoroughly recommend this apartment

Our second visit to San Mateo proved to be just as enjoyable as the first. Our first visit was as a family of teenagers, this second one as a couple. Janette and Jim are most obliging and friendly, very informative on what is on and where, and have a grasp of individual needs of their occupants. Jim is handy with... More

I chose this apartment based on the reviews I had read. I booked a fully self contained luxury penthouse which was far from the truth. The location and views were excellent and very easy to walk to broadbeach restuarant and shopping. We stayed there as a family of 4 with 2 children and I was having my invalid cousin come... More

Walking distance to EVERYTHING yet a quiet location. I found this place thru Lastminute.com at the very last minute. When everything else on Wotif was ridiculously expensive over the long weekend, I found this little gem of a place. The manager even upgraded our room to an 'ocean view' on a higher floor, at no extra cost. It has a... More
