Our family has just enjoyed a fantastic 6 night stay at the Talisman. We stayed in Unit 60 on the 20th floor which has a Nth West aspect. Sunrise visible from the lounge and sunset through the kitchen window. The lounge has stunning views and looks out over the beach and back towards Surfers Paradise. There is a huge dining table and recliner lounge suite. Foxtel (satellite TV) is available as well as a DVD player. The kitchen has a fantastic view to Surfers and towards the West with awesome sunsets over the hills. The main bedroom has a view back down the beach towards Coolangatta. Our apartment was clean, tidy, spacious, quiet and fairly recently refurbished. All appliances in the kitchen were new and in excellent condition. It was great to have an option of dish washing liquid as well as dishwasher detergent as we preferred not to use the machine (water conservation). Sufficient sachets of tea and coffee were provided but UHT milk pottles rather than fresh. Although there is quite a bit of construction in Broadbeach we never heard any noise. However, the rubbish trucks come around 6am and I was always awake to hear them.
Resort facilities are excellent. The pool is awesome and extremely warm, so warm that we were swimming at 8am every morning. It is about 1.2M at the shallow end and 1.8M at the deep end. There is a spa attached to the pool and a barbeque area nearby. Tennis courts are available for hire and can be used under floodlight. A sauna is available for males and females but we never used them. A security key must be used at all times to gain access to the pool area. The beach is a couple of minutes walk across the road and has a patrolled area. A park is also right across the road with facilities for the little kids. Oasis shopping mall is 5 mins walk away and has a Woolworths supermarket. A smaller foodmarket is located a few blocks North on the Gold Coast highway for after hours grocery necessities.
We had a little bit of a hassle getting in as we arrived at 5pm on a Sunday and could not find a number to call for Reception. We had missed the phone number in the doorway as guests were exiting as we went in. We eventually found it and managed to get into the after hours key safe. Everyone on Reception was very welcoming and chatty - a real family atmosphere. Overall our stay was fantastic and exactly what we had been looking for. We paid AUD$990 for 6 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment which I feel was certainly excellent value for money.
