“great location, friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Great holiday location, a stones throw away from the beach, and a short walk to the nightlife surfer's paradise has to offer.Front staff were really friendly and accommodating. Would highly recommend to friends wanting to have a good time out, or a family wanting to be close to the beach and restaurants. Had a spacious room with a great view of the ocean.

Stayed one night only through sheer exhaustion. Booked online, very deceptive. It was so cramped. Looked dirty. Rusty towel rails, cracked mirrors,holes in curtains (to scared to close those incase they fell down). Found a 5 star for only $100. more

Morticia will be pleased to know all curtains in her apartment have been replaced as have the towel rails. We have also replaced the mirror which had a very small crack. Our guests can now enjoy our magnificent beachfront location and panoramic views from every apartment from the luxury of their spotlessly clean, very spacious and recently upgraded apartment.

We stayed 4 nights at the Olympus apartments and although we enjoyed our stay this apartment could only be rated as average. Let me start with the positives. Great location, amazing views, affordable accomodation, free parking, friendly helpful staff and a nice pool. Unfortunately there were a few things which let this place down. Firstly the hot water tank. We ran out of hot water each time we showered. Considering this 2 bedroom apartment can have 4 people it, the hot water tank certainly can't cope with this. Once you've finished your cold shower there is nowhere in the bathroom to hang your towels. The apartment was not as clean as it should be. The bed was very hard, not very comfortable. The apartment was quite cold and there is no heating or air conditioning (although we did find a small heater on our last day). This apartment has much potential and could be fantastic but due to the lack of attention to detail it is just average. Although I'm sure you could find worse places to stay you could also find
better.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. Staff were more than accommodating and especially reception staff were extremely friendly. Our room was clean and very comfortable but we especially enjoyed the view. Olympus Apartments were conveniently located, with great restaurants and everything we needed was within walking distance. Of course with the beach just across the road everything was perfect.

Room Tip: Staff were friendly and explained location and views of all rooms.

Great location, just across the road from the beach and an easy walk in to Surfers. Really friendly and helpful reception staff with good local knowledge. Will stay again on our next trip to the Gold Coast.

Half way through our ten night stay here.
The view from our balcony is absolutely breathtaking! The apartment has everything u would need and everything is clean and tidy, the pool sauna and tennis courts are fab and the service at reception is lovely. Your right in the centre of surfers and everything u would need is right on the doorstep.
If we ever return to surfers in the future we would definitely stay here again, it's beautiful : ))
