“Modest but by far best value & relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

I rated it excellent evn though the accomodation is modest (not 5 star luxury) is set in an ideal location that has a balance of being close to the beach but not too close to traffic and people noise as it's set back. It has great views over the ocean and can hear the waves at night....sooo relaxing. The management is excellent (Yvonne in particular) ensure the whole place has a really relaxed vibe and nothing's a hassle. on top of all that, the rates for the accommodation here make it by far the best value on the Gold Coast that I've come across...and I've stayed in a lot of places on the Gold Coast.

Thanks for your great review. Glad you had a relaxing stay, and it's nice to see people using all the facilities(i.e sauna) during their stay.
We look forward to hosting you when you next feel like a relaxing weekend on the Gold Coast.

hat a great time. My wife and I are over 65 but the help from maureen and yvonne was nothing short of wonderful. I decided not to hire a car so I relied upon the advice given by these lovely ladies on each occassion they were spot on reagrarding bus times where to catch them and orgainizing tours. I will certainly be returningto this hotel/resort and will have our children think about the time that we spent there . We stayed in room 44 and it was fully self contained with kitchen, washing machine dryer and internet. What more can you ask for.Surfers paradise No No No
Bravo Maureen and Yvonne

Seven family and friends stayed in a penthouse suite for 9 nights from the 1st August. This was to coincide with my 60th birthday and our son's desire to get me on all the Gold Coast theme park rides before I am "too old".

Our stay was very good and was made even better by a week of absolutely perfect weather that even the locals admitted was "out of the box". The location of this block is near perfect being just one street back from the foreshore and while there are taller blocks around, your views of the ocean and across the suburbs to the Hinterland are pretty much unimpeded. A major shopping centre and supermarket are within easy walking distance which is very handy for stocking up as the apartments are fully self contained and self catering. There are also many restaurants and cafes in the same complex in case you don't feel like cooking every night.

I am only guessing but I estimate the building to be around 30 years old and has been maintained in very good condition. Sure there are the odd signs of wear and tear but when you consider the pounding these buildings take from their coastal environment, the odd blemish can be overlooked. The grounds and public areas are also clean and well maintained. Our contact with staff was minimal and limited to on site management and we found them to be helpful, cheerful and pleasant.

Our penthouse lacked any real wow factor to distinguish it as a penthouse and as far as we knew it could have been just another apartment on the top floor. Having said that, the apartment was very spacious over two levels and included several balconies, a sauna and plunge pool and large out door area overlooking the beach. It was clean, comfortable and very well equipped which in reality is all we look for. Our only gripe was the lack of and inconsistent water pressure. This was both hot and cold and didn't matter if one shower or all three were being used at the same time. On occasions it could blast you and on others there was hardly a dribble. Still, we had water and survived.

All in all, a very pleasant 9 nights in comfortable and well presented surroundings. Would not hesitate to recommend to friends or family.

Thank you for your in depth review of Ocean Royale. Your estimate of the buildings age is spot on at 30 , we do strive to maintain the building to the best it can be,and keep it looking clean and shiny.
The staff you did see are the only staff, the management team run everything to do with the building , so thanks for the kind words.
We will check why your water pressure was so erratic, and do apologize for this anomaly.
We look forward to hosting you in the future.
Regards Yvonne

Thank you so much for a great weekend away. The unit was clean with amazing ocean views. Staff was super friendly. Great value for your dollar at this place. Just a short walk to cafes and shops and easy transport around the corner to take you straight to the casino (the Lumi Air show was a huge hit). Safe basement parking for the car with easy access to lifts. Both an outdoor pool and an indoor heated pool with spa, and tennis courts you could book which looked in great condition. I highly recommend Ocean Royale!

Room Tip: We stayed in unit 25 on level 6.

We stayed for three nights recently and would definitely go back. So close to the beach as well as restaurants. Great views and facilities within the property. The staff were welcoming and also very helpful. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone!
