We stayed her e for 6 nights over Christmas 2015. The apartment on level 6 was fantastic. The views are sensational. The air conditioned unit was very clean with two bathrooms, a must when you have 4 people. The linen and towels are very good quality. The grounds are immaculate with the swimming pool and an indoor spa and pool... More

I stayed here with my mum, dad and brother and we had a wonderful time. The rooms are very comfortable and the view is amazing. The beach is seconds away and is a lovely location to swim. The plunge pool and spa were lovely. Overall a great experience. Thanks!

It was perfect for my family and I. We have three children and they had a ball with the beach so close and a pool to splash in. Even when the weather was against us they had fun playing in the games room. My boys love planes because of their dad working on them so seeing them fly past was... More

what a wonderful little secret on the Gold Coast! Perfect family resort with the magnificent absolute beachfront out our back door-even with sand toys for the kids!Love the spa /sauna to finish off the lazy days! Staff very friendly, older style apartments but clean and spacious.

Lovely spot, slowly being renovated, well priced for the family. Walk straight onto beach, no roads. Outside pool, looking over the sea. Inside downstairs has a sauna room, very warm deep spa and cold plunge pool by its side. Foxtel for the tv addicts. I preferred sitting on one of the balconies watching planes landing and taking off. Or watching... More

Great beach location but disappointing accommodation. We travel a lot for business and the Pelican Sands only ticked a few boxes and not the important ones for us. Location for proximity to the airport and right on the beach was excellent. Our apartment was older style, dirty and run down. The wind whistled all night through gaps in window seals... More

pelicans2, Manager at Pelican Sands Beach Resort, responded to this review

We would have appreciated your response come direct to management so that we may rectify any problems-we don't know if you don't tell us! We feel you certainly get excellent 'Value for money" at The Absolute beachfront apartments. We don't claim to be a 5 star new resort-nor do we charge like them. Enjoy your travels! More

I found this a great place to relax, with all the facilities to keep kids happy, a quiet beach and roomy apartments at a great price. Great views , big balcony, huge lap pool and a very well maintained BBQ area almost on the beach. Little store just 100m away for take aways and groceries. B back.

One of the best positions on the Gold Coast. We stayed in unit 802 on the 8th floor in a two bedroom unit. The views from all rooms were to die for. The proximity to the beach, well it's almost on the beach!! The recently renovated unit was very comfortable with all the mod cons. The managers are very friendly... More
