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

I have stayed in a few places around Gold Coast and this one i have been back to twice now! The place has a really beach/resort feel to it. It is surrounded in nice trees and bush with flowers and native Australian birds. It has a lovely pool in the middle of the grounds with a side spa and a... More

We love to hear from our repeat guests. We pride ourselves in our landscaped gardens and are always maintaining them for the enjoyment of our guests. (They are growing very quickly at the moment with all the rain we have currently had). We also have 2 or 3 local Kookaburras that visit on a regular basis - we love to... More

Located off the main highway in mermaid beach. Has all facilities needed and close to restaurants, take away, and recreational facilities. Beach and surfers or any other major shopping needs transport. Overall pleasant place to stay at with other families as well.
