Booked this as part of a 6 week visit to OZ along the east coast and stayed here for 3 weeks. This was booked as a self catering 3 bedroom unit. All facilities were on site with lovely air con for those very hot days. Gated swimming pool was just yard from th back door and the communal BBQ was... More

We needed to be at Mermaid Beach for a specific event so unfortunately there was not much accommodation to choose from. The resort is relatively well located, being approximately 500m to the beach and surf club. It has a nice pool area and secure parking. The one bedroom unit we stayed in (unit 46) is aged and tired. The most... More

We stayed a week and enjoyed the central location and the pool. We were disappointed by the level of repair of the unit's fittings: broken zippers on cushions, a rotten door frame, and a very mouldy shower base in the ensuite and a shower rose in the main bathroom that would not remain in position. Overall, the unit met our... More

This is the third time in 12 years we've stayed at Diamond Cove Resort and it's still our favourite place on Australia's Gold Coast. Great layout with a wonderful lagoon pool,spa pool and BBQ area. Diamond Cove resort is very handy to Jupiters Casino (25 Min walk), 15 min walk to Pacific Fair Shopping Centre (incl. supermarket) and 5 min... More

Resort close to beach and restaurants - just off highway and close to shopping centre. 2 bedroom appartment was clean and roomy. Great pool view from lounge. Only negative was the 4 flights of steps up to our appartment, but had its advantage as it was a great way of exercising especially at our age which is over 60.

One of the main if not the only attractions of this complex is the lagoon pool. The brochure states "Start your mornings with a refreshing swim in our sparkling heated outdoor pool." Only problem is it's not heated, well not unless you call 23 degrees ideal. Considering that we're paid just under $200 a night over the Easter break for... More

Hidden away from the chaos but close to everything this resort is ideal for the budget conscious. $156 per night during Easter for a 2 bedroom is in my books very affordable. However the room fittings were in need of an update. Old and yellowing but functional which I guess is what's important. The ceramic ornament in the lounge room... More

I have read the favourable reviews of this resort but our two bedroom unit was very tired and shabby. We had a horrible outlook of the unattractive back fence. I found the reception unwelcoming. It was "read the conditions and sign here". No welcome or smiles. The pool was nice and it was handy to shops. I visit the Gold... More

We stayed at Diamond Cove Resort and had a very relaxing stay. It was quiet and close to the beach and shops. Our apartment was lovely and we were on the 3rd storey so had a beautiful view of Surfers Paradise from the lounge-room. At night the view was lovely with all the lit-up high rises. The unit was very... More

We love our central position and location on a quiet street just off the main Gold Coast Highway but close to all amenities. We are a family oriented resort and have a lot of families come back specifically for our pool which is heated all year round. It has a beach entry and steps around the pool which is great... More
