“Cheap is just cheap!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Very old property, pictures are not up-to-date. Our apartment did not look like the pictures on the website. The beds were uncomfortable and the rooms smelt mouldy.
We were just very very disappointed, although the couple running the apartments were very nice I was expecting a very different experience.

Paulette, we are sad to hear that you were disappointed with your room. If only you could have bought this to our attention we may have been able to relocate you to another apartment. We want all of our guest to enjoy their stay and at any time they feel unhappy please come see us.

Our family stayed at Paros for 11 nights in July. We had a three bedroom beach front apartment. While the complex is an older building, we found our accommodation clean, spacious, and very comfortable. We had plenty of room for our family of six to spread out and enjoy the complex.
The hot spa was relaxing after a busy day at the theme parks and the location made getting around easy with buses at the door.

The friendly staff were only too happy to help plan our holiday, and made our children feel very welcome. We will definitely be back. If you are thinking of holidaying on the Gold Coast I would highly recommend staying at Paros on the beach!

Room Tip: Apartment 1 has the best views!

me, my partner and his brother loved staying here! Very clean apart from one or two cups that was a bit dirty but that was not a problem at all. Just washed them again. Lovely spot for easy access to bus stops and a 10min walk to restaurants. You feel very welcomed by their lovely staff. I would be more than happy to recommend Paros on the beach to all my friends and family and will certainly stay again, hopefully in the near future. :)

It has been some years since our last visit to Paros on the Beach. We were very happy to be back. Beachfront unit with uninterrupted views of the surf. So relaxing. We chose a quiet time of year to visit this time and we were happy about that. A week mid June...escaping the frosts of good old Melbourne. Our unit had been recently renovated and was very spacious with all you need to make your trip comfortable. Our unit was clean and the best part was our balcony overlooking the beach, just perfect. We were helped at all times by friendly staff, from our booking right through to our rebooking for next year. Paros is an older style complex but it is maintained very well. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: The garden rooms do not have uninterrupted views of the ocean/beach and no aircon. If staying in ho...

My family (2 adults & 3 kids) stayed at Paros for week in April. The location was amazing - right on the beach - we could walk from our unit straight on to surfers beach. The service provided was wonderful - nothing was too much trouble. Although an older style of accommodation (and a little tired in some areas) compared with some of the high rises surrounding Paros - we wouldn't have wanted to stay anywhere else. Will hopefully get to Gold Coast again soon and stay here again.

My friends and I just came back from a 6 day stay with Paros on the Beach and it was the best experiences I have had. We had waited last minute to pick a destination for our break from University and we were lucky to find Paros. It was an affordable price and the unit was beautiful. We had unit 17, so we did not face the beach, yet the view of the pool and Surfers Paradise was just as great. We did a late check in and they made sure that everything was set for us beforehand. The front desk was always helpful and friendly, and I loved that you could borrow beach equipment if you needed it. One thing that bothered me was the amount of moths in the stairways,in the elevator, and even in our unit! But other than that, it was nothing but the best, especially for budgeting Study Abroad/ International college students!
