Thank you to the Spindrift on the Beach for the most amazing family holiday. The location is just perfect, with the beach on the doorstop and some great restaurants and shops just 5 minutes walk away. The apartment was clean, modern and well-furnished, and the view from our ocean front apartment was spectacular. The extra touches the Spindrift provided such... More

Hi Stephen, Thank you, the cleanliness issue is taken seriously and I will follow through with housekeeping. The sun certainly likes to rise early in the morning and only our center Oceanfront apartments have the bedrooms directly facing east over the ocean which I can honestly say 99.9% of both couples and families absolutely love, light sleepers or not and...

We recently had a 5-night stay at Spindrift. It was a very enjoyable stay, right on the beach with no roads or paths to cross. Management were very professional and helpful and obviously kept the property clean and presentable. The rooms are a little dated though nicely furnished and fitted out. A great location with parks, good cafes and shops... More

We stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. We had apartment 19 on the 4th floor, a beach view apartment, which gives you a view of the ocean and the land looking towards Surfers Paradise. The apartment was clean and the kitchen was well equipped. Although there was a new aircon installed, we did not have it... More

Apartment was clean, location good. Incredibly noisy from the surf and wind as the windows do not close properly at all. If you don't like noise don't stay here. The accom was not couple friendly either which is a shame. We had to sleep in a bunk bed setup, given lots of couples travel tgthr, time to rethink. I wouldn't... More

Excellent location, friendly and accommodating staff. No request was too much. The accommodation was clean and well maintained. Surf club 2 doors down. Thank you Darren and your staff for helping make our daughter's 18th special. We will be back and we will be recommending to others.

Great location as you can walk straight to the beach where there is always a surf patrol. Great if you have kids. We stayed at Albatross North Apartments last time just up the road and found the unit to be much larger than Spindrift (they are also a little more expensive) Overall clean and reasonably well presented, although starting to...
