“Very noisey position but close to cafes, shops”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

This resort is on a bend in the gold coast highway and very noisy, we had to keep the doors closed all the time. The air conditioner being the on the balcony only increased the noise factor. For the price I paid I don't think it was very good value at all. I Normally stay at the QT in Surfers Paradise for the same price and there is no comparison on any level. On the positive side the resort is in walking distance to the local shops restaurants and cafes which were of a very high standard, Especially Bin 12, great food and even better cocktails.

Great location right in Burleigh. Two minute walk to shops, great cafes and restaurants, beach and surf life saving club (across busy highway). Well maintained resort with friendly and helpful staff. Clean spacious rooms with good size balcony. Great pool and tennis court, secure undercover parking. I did not notice any traffic noise and found that guests and permanent residence kept noise levels down. Highly recommend this as a good choice for Burleigh accommodation. Blackout curtains would be my only recommendation although light penetration was not too much of a problem.

Spent the night here in a two bedroom apartment.
Great spacious living area, the bedrooms were a little smaller but one had a great walk in wardrobe and bathroom.
Lovely area, much more relaxed than Surfer's Paradise.
The pool and BBQ area are great too and I like how it is very safe and secure (you need a swipe key to access the resort.)

Awesome resort just a minute walk to beautiful Burleigh beach. The apartments are modern, spotless and large. Burleigh is a lot more relaxed than surfers paradise but the resort is still just a short stroll from heaps of great restaurants.

Walking distance to the various restaurants and beach area at Burleigh Heads. These apartments are quite large and clean. Nothing special in terms of layout or decor, but quite convenient for short stays. Both my stays have been short term to meet and catch up with family.

Room Tip: Request as beach facing room and the higher floors are better to get away from car and street noise...

Great location, excellent value for a family of 7. Room was fantastic, far exceeded expectations. Kids loved the pool and spa which was fully shaded each afternoon. Spectacular views on the large balcony.
Will definitely stay again.
