“Perfect and great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

I stayed in here for one week originally and then chose an additional week due to this hotel. This hotel has everything, it's fully furnished with everything needed to live here full time, if need be. It's cheaper than all hotels nearby (when bought in weeks), is really well located and clean throughout, The staff are always super helpful and was a big help to me getting around Gold Coast. Wifi is expensive compared to other places. I wouldn't have stayed in Surfer's Paradise for the second week with out Costa, we just found it so homely and cosy.

Room Tip: There is no lift so preferably towards the bottom, but the bottom on the left side has some rooms yo...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

I was very impressed with the helpful receptionist especially as we arrived after our approx arrival time we had suggested due to flight and traffic delays. She was very willing to give us some tips and handed us a street map with the main shops and nightlife. We were only staying for two nights and the apartment was perfectly situated for our needs.
It was close enough to general supplies and the attractions however in a quiet street so we were able to have a good night sleep in a safe environment.
Pros - air con, roomy enough for two people, close to attractions, safe and secure parking and helpful staff.
Cons - out dated, stairwell to apartments quite dirty.

Overall nice place. My partner and I recommend it ! Great value for money too!

I stay for 5 days in 1BR apartment with 2 adults & 1kid. Very good location, very convenient with walking distance to cavil mall, beach and mini mart shops to get some gocessories to cook light meals in the apartment. As the apartment provide the basic kitchenett including washing machine & dryer. The underground car park is very secure with proper allocate parking slot for me. And lastly the staff, Ms Linda is very helpful. It is small apartment but very comfortable. I sure to go back if I am in holiday next year.

Me and my girlfriend had a very special stay at Costa D'Ora - we got engaged!

The apartment was exactly what we wanted. Spacious enough with our balcony and two rooms.

We rented a car and the underground parking was very handy.

The security is well thought through and the TV, kitchen equipment was all in place and useful.

I personally wanted to thank the lady at the reception who was very helpful and understanding.

We know where to stay if we come to Gold Coast.

Thanks a lot.

Room Tip: Book in advance and know what you're looking for. Ask questions.

I really can't express, how the resorts are.. It's Marvellous & we do had a good stay from 24th Aug - 29th Aug 2012..Staff was very friendly.. Security is very tight esp the carparks & it's safe eventhough we were back late night... Room was Awesome with full equipped cooking utensils at the cute kitchenette.. Washing machine & dryer are useful which you don't need to pack the whole wardrobe from home.. Checking in & out are smooth.. Areas are clean.. Every time we were out some where, we can't wait to get back to Costa D'ora Apartment...

Thank You for the early checked-in on the 24th which we had 2-3 hours power nap before we explore Surfers Paradise which is just a footstep away, and also we celebrated our 11th years of Wedding Anniversary.. I will definitely recommends this apartment to family & friends...

Accessible to Woolsworths, Surfers Paradise (Shopping Paradise), Restaurants, Hard Rock Cafe & Beach.. And it's not more than 1KM walk... Not forgetting accessible to any routes, highways to Coolangatta Airport, Movie World, Sea World, Theme Parks & Brisbane...
