Very large 2 bed, 2 bath apartment, with great balcony and sea views. Good amenities all in working order. The apartment however is looking very old.....scuff marks, need of a paint job and a bit of a clean up to spruce it up

We stayed at the resort during the school holidays with four boistrous young children. The apartment we had was really spacious and child friendly and spotless. It is close to the shops and cafes of Broadbeach without the noise and crowds. It is right across the road from an excellent play park which the kids loved. My only down would... More

I have stayed here a few years ago. The 2 bedroom apartment was nice. Pretty basic, but the views make up for the slightly dated decor. Knowing the trouble i went through the first time to get a room with a decent view, and after reading other people's reviews, i called the hotel so that i could specifically request a... More

Amazing place with an incredible view and even better facilities. Outdoor pool and indoor to get you through the colder days. The hotel review will be in stark contrast to that of Pat Carroll who provides no accommodation but ordinary training and preparation!

This is the second time we have stayed at Carmel by the sea. we went back because the rooms are extremely large and well fitted out. The location is excellent, not in a noisy location and the facilities are good. The staff were okay but I guess not over enthusiastic about service, the hotel seems predominantly set up for permanent... More

We have stayed at Carmel by the Sea twice before because of its location close to the beach and as it's only a short walking distance to Broadbeach restaurants. This time we had a unit on the 5th floor. Our two bedroom unit was spacious with two bathrooms, a kitchen, utility room, lounge, dining room and large balcony. The balcony... More

We stayed at Carmel by the Sea in October 2014 in the 3 bedroom apartment on the 11th floor. Absolutely no regrets and would stay there again! The apartment was very spacious for hubby, mum and 3 boys. It is perfectly located from both shopping centres and across the road from the beach. You won't be disappointed.
