We had stayed at Oscars before and the next time we were treated very badly and stayed elsewhere. It is now under new management and this has made a huge difference. Stayed twelve days and enjoyed the stay very much we did have a few hiccups but these were very minor and attended to with out fuss the unit was... More

Wonderful spacious apartments with uninterrupted views of the ocean and beach because of a caravan park directly in front. We have not had any problems with noise even during busy periods. Our third visit was during Christmas 2014. This will be our go to place for the Gold Coast when we visit family who live nearby. In selecting and booking... More

Travelled with our three children and the location was just fantastic...short walk to the beach, liquor outlets, Subway and cafes. The view from the large balcony was exactly what a beach holiday is about. The positives of the apartment were large-sized rooms, comfortable beds, clean furnishings and air conditioning. My only gripe would be that we were given only two... More

We were really impressed by our stay. We just missed out on a luxury room (there are only 3). We got a 2 bedroom apartment it was great. We are a family of 5 - 3 young kids (7, 5 & 3.5) and there was plenty of space. Great balcony - lots of room. we couldn't have asked for more... More

Would have been nice to have free fresh towels when necessary and also complimentary shower gel and soap on demand. Carpets could have used a deep steam clean and/or replacement. Still maintains a very late 80s early 90s feel. Great location outside the hustle and bustle of surfers. Very nice run from main beach to surfers.

Sorry to read our comments about the carpet. All carpets were deep steam cleaned by professionals in early December before peak season. I do wish you had brought it to our attention at the time as I do not know which apartment you stayed in so I could inspect and rectify the situation. You will find that when you book... More

Exceptional is what you would expect with an Oscar and that is what we got. We arrived outside office hours and the arrangements made in advance for access was hassle free and convenient. Our very large apartment on the 20th floor overlooking the ocean, large balcony for breakfast in the beautiful sun - amazing. Superior granite kitchen was a pure... More

Lovely Weather, second stay here, Very well maintained, close to surf club and Tedder Ave Shops. Great indoor pool. Lovely management. Close to patrolled beaches, walk to sailing club. North East end units end in a one ie 61,71 etc. which get Broadwater views as well as beach. Very relaxing holiday.

Thanks for your time in posting a review. Glad you enjoyed your stays with us and look forward to seeing you next time. Your hint about room numbers is not correct though. It would be so much easier if the apartments on level 6 were called 61 62 and 63. unfortunately not. Apartments are numbered 1-93, regardless of floor. More

Great room, spacious and clean with everything you need plus balconies to enjoy scenery. Great facilities, including pool, sauna, spa, tennis, all of which we used! Free limited internet. Pillows could have had more support.

The lounge/dining room has a large flat screen TV, radio DVD and flows onto a balcony with another tables plus comfortable seating.

So sorry about the light issues. We have now fixed them and sorted out the balcony. If we had known we would have come up straight away and fixed them for you. I love to read in bed so am particular about bedside lamps myself so fully understand. Glad you loved the apartment and views. If the apartment does not... More
