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.

The one bedroom apartment was fully equipped, clean and spacious. The view was fantastic and the location was perfect for walking to restaurants, shopping and the beach. The staff were also helpful and friendly. Definitely recommend this hotel.

Carmel by the Sea is a very comfortable, pleasant place to spend your holiday. We stayed over the Blues festival week end in a two bedroom apartment and everything was great. The views are magnificent, each room has a view of the ocean. The apartments have a well appointed kitchen and foxtell is installed and is free. We have also... More

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

The units are well placed. The local surf club is just two blocks walk as is the Oasis shopping centre which is the station for the monorail to Jupiters Casino.

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
