We love this hotel and stay here every time we travel to the coast. It has a great location near beach, parks ,shops and the new tram. The facilities are great. Rooms are huge (we get a south facing 2 bedroom) and staff are lovely. Wouldn't stay anywhere else.

We spent a few days at Carmel by the Sea to recharge our batteries. We wanted somewhere close to the beach, close to restaurants & attractions on the Gold Coast and not too expensive. Carmel by the Sea fitted the bill perfectly - the views from the hotel are spectacular. The service was good. The apartment was really specious and... More

we had a weekend stay recently and were very happy with the facilities, the location and the accommodation provided. We had a 3 bedroom apartment that was fantastic. Ocean views, modern fittings, spa, foxtel and right near the beach. we had no car, so the walk was a bit away from most things, but other than that, it was great.... More

Wonderful big apartments, very secure. Beautiful gardens and lovely outdoor pool with an added indoor pool and spa and gym. Close to major shopping and restaurants. Would highly recommend it. Just like living in your own apartment and left to your own devices.
