“Beware!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2007

When you can't sleep at night because of the cockroaches something is very wrong. We are talking 100s of little ones!

Me and my Wife arrived in this great location called Surfers Paradise. We checked in at the Equinox Sun resort. We stocked up the small fridge in the self contain apartment that had only one good thing about it- the sea view!
We went out for an evening meal. After we came back to our apartment we noticed the roaches around our bed, in the bathroom, on the balcony...The kitchen was infested.
Reception was closed. Lights were on all night.
We asked to be moved but the place was booked up...
Result 3 sleepless nights and nightmares about the Golden Coast.
IF YOU CAN, AVOID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stayed February 2007

Do not ever stay at this hotel, it was the worst holiday experience of my life. The website is very misleading about the facilities and the quality of the resort is deserving of a negative star. The title of 'Resort' should not be applied to The Equinox, but rather budget motel. The kitchen facilities were shocking, as the website states full kitchen facilities which were actually anything but. The bathrooms were in much need of a renovation and the fixtures kept breaking. Also, the gym can hardly be classified as a gym. It consisted of one multi purpose machine and one treadmill, unable to accomodate more than 2 people at a time. Overall, the Equinox should be demolished.
