Well located in the Gold Coast but requires a car to get to shops, theme parks and beach. Apartment needs improvement! Kitchen lacking plates and utensils. Oven door broken, stove needed repair. Washing machine top loader lid hit into dryer. Infested with ants. Hot upstairs no a/c only old fans. A/C downstairs did not respond to remote and had to... More

Totally Disappointed!! We stayed here 2 years ago & thought it was wonderful, this time round we brought extras with us and talked up how great it was. I have never been so embarrassed & disgusted, I couldn't believe how the units had deteriorated & how run down they were in such a short time, if there weren't so many... More

We only stayed at this complex because we were playing a tennis tournament nearby, but soon after arriving we found the whole apartment to be in a dilapidated state. There were cracks in the walls and holes in the walls. The walls were smeared in some splashes of some sort of liquids I'd hate to think about. The kitchen floor... More

I bought a voucher which gave us a discount. The apartment was about 20 years old and great for the family as we didn't have to watch our children's every move. The apartment was very comfortable, our children enjoyed the spa and pool. The staff at the reception were very friendly. I would highly recommend sailfish cove for people who... More

We have just arrived back from 5 nights stay and the townhouse we stayed in was on the canal. Highly recommending paying to stay on the canal. Loved having a lock up garage and the accommodation is surprisingly spacious for a family of 4. Staff were all friendly and we ate in the restaurant and the meals and coffee were... More

We checked in at the school holidays and found out that this place was beyond repair....filthy oven, ants crawling on the kitchen, carpets were stained and no air conditioning on the main bedroom....to top it off only one tv downstairs. This place is overrated....those people who gives excellent comments must have a share in this resort because half of them... More

Booked our deal months in advance. For our Xmas holiday. Was like "Fawlty Towers" they have no idea about customer service. Their communication is shocking, ring the after hrs line as there was no reception available when you check-in. They gave us the wrong room. We didn't get a place to sleep until 9pm. Only after waiting for them to... More

We just had 7days here and it was very nice. The rooms are a good size and it was nice and clean. We was right on the canal and it was lovely sitting out the back in the sun. Doing some fishing too. The Angela cove cafe was great yummy food and a good price. The staff in the office... More

Our family admittedly got a ' deal ' to stay here when we arrived the house allotted to us was big and on he canal, but the place was run down, dirty, holes in the walls, it reminded me of a bad student house. No matter what the price ( and it wasn't that cheap ) this place was a... More

A great place to stay, two large pools and the resort is gated. As Sailfish Cove is in Mermaid Waters you either need to hire a car to get around or familiarize yourself with the bus timetable. Angela's Cove Cafe is great! The meals are outstanding, great value and the service is fantastic.
