Stayed here for the Broadbeach blues festival. Foe the location to all the sites and the beach it is prime location. The view was amazing and had a large balcony to see it from. The appartment was very spacious and clean with a touch of a 90's feel. In between modern and holdiay inn. Self contained kitchen was okay, perhaps... More

Pacific Fair is 10 mins walk or 5mins drive away. There are lots of restaurants close by. There is a very good playground opposite. The staff and friendly and there... More

Having stayed at this property previously with family and enjoyed it I had no hesitation in booking again simply because of the value factor. Carmel was simply on a per square meter basis the best value for money in Broadbeach for larger apartments. We stayed for 10 nights recently on a family holiday after returning from a long stint overseas.... More

With so many apartments to choose from within Broadbeach we were delighted with our final decision. We needed a three bedroom apartment, on the beach, close to restaurants and shops but not too busy and noisy. Carmel by the sea ticked all our boxes. Our room was spacious and had magnificent ocean and beach views. A 5 minute walk to... More

Carmel by the Sea is a fantastic accommodation choice in central Broadbeach. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. The facilities in the hotel are fantastic. We used the indoor pool, sauna and tennis court during our stay, however there is also an outdoor pool and a lovely BBQ dining area. Being situated...

We rented four separate two bedroom apartments in the building and we found all of the apartments were of an exceptional standard. The pool and BBQ areas are of a very high standard and we made very... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with our family. We found the apartment to be spacious and light with an amazing view of the ocean and a very luxurious feel. The only comment I would make is that there were limited plates/cups for a large family and no plastics for the kids. The furniture and fittings in the apartments... More

Booked a 3 bedroom apartment at this hotel for 3days over the weekend to celebrate an 80th birthday. The place is amazing, with beautifully appointed rooms, excellent location right on the beach and with brilliant facilities at the hotel such as pool, spa, sauna, tennis courts, gym. A place that is hard to look past.
