We had a 3 bedroom apartment which had ample room, there for a week from 14th January. Beautiful wrap around verandah with view of river, pool and beach. Very quiet apartment, great for family's close to everything but tucked away from the hustle and bustle. only thing is airconditioning is only in lounge room so bedrooms tend to heat up... More

We booked a family holiday at Contessa Apartments 26th December through to 9th January. Our three bedroom apartment (number 81) was a complete disappointment. Tatty and damaged furniture, dirty unpainted walls, limited cutlery and crockery, a broken door lock and overall a poorly presented apartment for $500 a night. The only saving grace was the building manager, he was polite... More

We have been taking our family to the Contessa now for the past 3 years and have always been very satisfied with the location, overall standard of the accommodation, and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

Loved the location, had all we needed, however the older reception lady was not a friendly person for the first point of call to the hotel. Rather rude! Cleaning staff were more helpful and friendly ( Thanks Karen!) We reported an electrical fault in our room and it was never seen to or fixed after 5 days, no contact from... More

Great location (north of the hustle and bustle that is Surfers), great facilities (indoor and outdoor pools) and great apartments (well appointed, spacious, neat and clean). We would definitely stay here again!

This was our first holiday to Queensland. We were very happy with the Contessa. The apartment was clean, neat and very comfortable. There was lots of room and the view was lovely as we over looked the pool and garden and could see the beach. Everything was so close to us, so it made it easy to go out for... More

The apartments may be a bit dated but older means larger, much more spacious rooms, good old quality fittings and marble tiling. The up side is the beautiful grounds and pool/pool area. This is such a feature of the place and provides guests with a really perfect environment to holiday in. Rarely do you find such a setting on the... More

We stayed in March 2015 in a 2 bedroom apartment. It was a great size with lovely views. The pool was awesome and it is a short easy walk to the beach. There is a small village shopping type area a few minutes walk away too. We'd start again.
