Stayed here for a conference that was held across the road @ Jupiters- Perfect to get away from the conference of a night. Stayed on the 13th floor 3 bedroom apartment, it was a rippa, good space 180 degree views of beach and city, modern (especially can hit miss here in broadbeach) only negative- charging for internet always annoys me....

Excellent location, Great facilities and service. Amazing view from high floors. Stayed here with a family of 4 adults and 2 kids, in a 3 bedroom apartment, we couldn't ask for much more. Very clean and tidy!

Haven't stayed here for 5 years, but the apartments have been very well maintained -very spacious with nice bathrooms. Supermarket and shops are a1minute walk away, which is very handy. The pool and lower deck are FANTASTIC.... More

We stayed at The Wave Resort for 5 nights in Apt 905, which is a 2 bedder. We were impressed by the size of the apartment and the luxe kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms fit-out. The whole place is just light filled and spacious. The Kitchen seems to be very equipped if you were to use as permanent resident, but we... More

Great location with great appartments. Poor customer service. Staff don't smile or greet you in the lifts,reception or lobby. Spa temperature was turned down when school had returned. Not servicing the rooms and very limited supplies doesn't make sence when you dont receive a discount for staying multiple nights. If they had a new customer in the room each night... More
