Our family stayed for 3 nights in April 2014. The location of the Apartments was great for us as we were able to drive easily to MovieWorld, Wet N Wild and Seaworld each day where we and our 2 & 6 year olds had a ball. There is a shopping centre nearby for those who want to buy groceries or... More

This resort is a hidden gem on the Goldy. We stayed in a very large 2 bedroom apartment for 3 nights and were very impressed. For only $130 a night it was fully self contained and even had a huge veranda and pay TV. It has a heated pool and spa as well as unheated and backs onto the canal/river.... More

Location great! Not the busy end of the goldcoast. We hired a car to get around. Overall cleanliness of unit was good: floors and toilets. But felt though blankets hadn't been cleaned in a while. Utensils in kitchen were feral and needed a good scrub prior to use. Also reception won't change towels for clean towels or need to pay... More

Just had a 2 night stay on very short notice. Room for its age was in good condition and every thing worked. The gardens pool were beautifully maintained.

We returned for a second year and again enjoyed the friendly atmosphere at Pelican Cove. This is a great location, near the Broadwater beach yet away from the crowds at Surfers. The pool and grounds are very well maintained.

We have 4 children and really loved the location and family feel at Pelican Cove. Our boys loved using the swimming pool, spa and hiring the tennis raquets ($5 an hour... very reasonable). Location was good for going sight-seeing. We even drove down to Byron Bay one day and would really recommend that! Secure parking was a bit tight for... More
