“Excellent Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

The managers were engaging and gracious. We were allowed to check- in early and given a cnr 1 bdrm unit on the 13th flr, room 1302. Older style bldg., but our unit was immaculate and spacious, w/ impressive ocean views. Good 10 minute walk to Surfers, the Surf Club across the street serves delicious meals, we were suitably impressed. Underground and guest parking is gratis, perfect, because our VW van was cutting it a bit close for the lower level entrance.
Decided to spend an extra night, thank you, Surfers Beachside.

Room Tip: 7th flr and above, cnr 1 bdrm units are spectacular

Booked a two-bedroom apartment and the room is spacious! It was quite a last minute booking but manage to secure a good price for it. View from 9th floor is spectacular!
The apartment is equipped with technically everything that you need; kitchen,utensils, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, iron and board. It is just 2 minutes away to the beach and a short walk to Cavill Mall. Bus stop to theme parks is also nearby.

Hello znzhdhznl,
Thank you for taking the time to review our property, we are so thrilled you loved our great views from the balconies. Whale watching season has just started and already guests are rushing down telling us of the tail slapping they have seen from there apartments. There is so much to do on the Gold Coast. Yes we have theme parks, beaches and are close to Cavill mall, but don't forget the night markets and the Green Behind the Gold, Tamborine Mountain Rainforest Skywalk, O’Reilly’s Tree Tops walk , The natural bridge at Numinbah Valley and the Green Mountains a section of Lamington National Park to name just a few of the fun things that can be enjoyed with the family. Yes we have the best beaches in Australia and we are the Theme Park capital but we have so much more. Come back and explore. We hope to see you again soon Kind regards Lynne Kocass - Manager

We booked Surfers Beachside Apartments not knowing what to expect... We arrived to the most welcoming of welcomes from reception then when we walked into our apartment we felt at home right away... Omg we absolutely loved it there. We have two boys (aged 2 & 3) who didn't want come home. They loved the pool (which is so clean and the BBQ area right beside the pool is awesome). The beach is right across the road and we as a family loved walking across the road to the great Surf Club for breakfast every morning. We got home to Sydney today (Jan 3rd 2013) and we have already booked for December 2013... We HIGHLY recommend Surfers Beachside Apartments :D

WOW!!! was my first response when we walked into our apartment on the 12th floor. We found the rooms very spacious and our two children (4 & 1) loved it too. The full service kitchen, which included large fridge, microwave, dishwasher, toaster jug and all the other bits and pieces was awesome. The views were amazing and from our balcony we had beautiful views of sunrise over the ocean and sunsets over the range. The apartments are located only a short walk from the centre of Surfers which means that you're close enough to enjoy this amazing place, but also far enough away that you're not kept awake all night by the partygoers. The Gourmet Deilvery service is amazing and we enjoyed the convenience. Off street secure parking was an added bonus as was the very friendly staff. We loved it. We travelled to SP for a family reunion with members travelling to this central point. But even without the treat of seeing family we will definitely be back and will be staying here again.

Room Tip: Our stay was only for a couple of days so, sadly, we didnt get to use the pool, spa or saunas.

We stayed for a week in April. Booked a 2 bedroom apartment on the internet. The rooms were spacious but the apartment was in much need of a face lift. even a lick of paint would make feel better. furnishings were also a bit tired. We thought the apartment could have been cleaner. the utensil drawer was full of crumbs and lots of food marks. It felt quite dirty, I think we left the kitchen cleaner than we found it The table tops were quite stained too.
the pool was great and the managers very helpful. .Location great easy walk to cavill mall restaurants etc.

Thanks for your review. It is always with great concern when we receive a disappointing comment. We at Surfers Beachside Holiday Apartments strive to surpass our A.A.A rating of 4 star and find it personally disappointing when we receive comments like this.
As with most accommodation properties in Queensland & N.S.W we operate under a Management Rights Agreement .Management rights is the onsite care-taking and letting of units and townhouses and each apartment is individually purchased and owned
Therefore each apartment is owned separately and as Resident Managers our role is to operate a business for each apartment owner under strict guidelines of the body corporate. We endeavour to meet or even surpass guest’s expectations and encourage owners to continue to improve and keep the standards required in all accommodation apartments. I am pleased to advise that this apartment and seven others have had major renovations over the past 8 months and we have plans to complete the final few outstanding early next year.
With regards to cleanliness we would have appreciated to have been advised during your stay. We rely on staff to keep our property to the standard we have set and if there is a problem we would have been more than happy to have addressed it instantly and then it would have allowed us to have had our cleaning staff supervisor focus on this with the staff
We hope we see you again on your next stay on the Gold Coast and will be able to show you that this is not the normal at our property
