First off a word about many hotels on the Gold Coast: Many of them are self contained and individually owned and as such each room is furnished by the individual owner meaning the level will vary to a certain degree. So this review is only for the room I stayed in. Room Type: Executive 3 bedroom. Somewhat old. It had... More

We stayed in the 3 bedroom unit on level 15 which commanded gorgeous views of the ocean and the Hinterland. The apartment was fully equipped especially in the kitchen which was useful for light cooking with a fully functional stove, oven, microwave oven, refrigerator and dishwasher. It even had a rice cooker, which is something I have never come across... More

We had a slow start, but the staff and the unit were very clean and had beautiful views. The condominium is very centrally located, close to shops, restaurants, public transport and beautifully quiet, with wide surround balconies.
