Looked up the reviews & was very pleased with my choice staying at the Wave Resort. I was torn between Peppers and this place & whilst I haven't been to Peppers, this place delivered. We had a 2 bed, very clean, spacious fully equipped apartment. The Wave is literally on Broadbeach & seconds from restaurants & minutes from the beach.... More

There is so much accommodation on the gold coast I got so confused when looking at where to stay that I went on a friends recommendation for this resort and was not... More

This is five star accommodation. It has an excellent location, walking distance to Pacific Fair, tram, beach, restaurants, shops, coffee houses and Woolies supermarket across the road. We were on level 7 in a one bedroom unit facing the sea, it was spacious (approx 50-60 sqm) and modern with an expansive private deck. We always looked forward to returning to... More

Absolutely great place to stay. Great location, friendly staff and very clean and modern rooms. The apartments are great value for money. Only downfall is you have to stay for a minimum of 3 nights, so I was told. Apart from that I can't fault it.

We stayed from 12-16 November. We had a 3 bedroom apartment on the 29th floor. Between 6 of us it worked out at only $50 per person per night so great value compared with a hotel room or 1 bedroom apartment. Also meant that we had 2 undercover car parks. The verandahs wrap around the whole apartment so the view... More

We were on the 24th floor the view is fantastic. The room was spacious and had everything you needed. We arrived late and there is nobody at the desk so that did take a little while. Unfortunately the spa heater had broken on the 4th floor. The pool area on the 34th floor is looking a little tired. Would definitely... More

My friend and I spent 4 nights here in a 3 bedroom apartment. With beautiful views of the ocean and hinterland, delicious restaurants right on your door step, and great shopping, what more could you want! We're already planning another trip for next year.
