Our apartment was spacious and modern and with amazing view as well. The staffs were very welcoming and smiling and ready to help everything we needed. Also, the hotel is located on a great location that we could walk only few mins for attractions

we hired a 2 bedroom apartment and were amazed by the size of it. 2 enormous living areas, dining area, 3 balconies, fabulous views from the 23rd floor. Building itself well located, playground and patrolled beach directly in front. 3 small blocks to walk to Mall and main restaurant strip. Lovely pool and bbq area.

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.

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.
