I stayed at the talisman with my brother and his friend (both 13) for 10 days. I contacted the Talisman around May to book; I then discovered later that these dates clashed with school commitments for both boys. I then contacted Talisman to ask whether we could change our booking which they were happy to do at the same price even though this became holiday period. We stayed in room 71 on the 23rd floor facing south east. This apartment was clean and had plenty of space. The furniture was a bit out of date but this did not concern us. Upon arrival we were greeted and everyday both myself and the boys were greeted even when they went out by themselves. Talisman Apartments is absolute beachfront with a 2 minute stroll across the road to the patrolled beaches and a 5 minute walk to Broadbeach mall which we underestimated. We begun only thinking it had a few stores (Woolworths incl) however we only went to Pacific Fair once choosing to go here instead! We went for the Theme parks and with public transport to all theme parks it was quite easy to go wherever we wanted whenever we wanted. Be careful the Theme Park express from Broadbeach to the parks has its last service about 11.30 am so make sure your there!!!!! Another thing make sure you book in advance to go to the Outback Spectacular as it cost $100 in taxis to get there and back! This however was our fault and lesson has been learnt!
The pool at the Talisman is gorgeous and we used it everyday, some days choosing to stay and relax in the spa and pool rather than going out. The area and the apartment were quite safe and this was important (being 21 and looking after 2 13yr old boys) with needing an electronic device to get into the pool and into the apartment after hours.
I would definitely stay here again and have already advised people to stay here, it is awesome and I hope to go back soon!
