“Great accommodation great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

We stayed at the Contessa holiday apartments for 14 nights, 3 bedrooms 2 bathroom apartment. We found the service excellent, the room on the 21st floor amazing we had great views of the gold coast. The best part was the location to all the theme parks and it was only a walk to the beach. The kids loved the 2 pools at the end of the day after we visited the themed parks.

Nothing was any trouble lovely people

I found the Contessa to be in a great location and was nice and quiet. Very close to the restaurant and shops in Main Beach. I even stayed there whilst it was schoolies and would have no hesitation in staying there again at the same time.

very convinient location, you can take shuttle bus 777 from airpot and it will just drop you off right in front of the contessa building. walk 2 minutes to the main beach to enjoy the most beautiful view. very close to the theme parks, such as sea world( highly recommended), movie world, wet n wild. you can also walk along the beach and reach suffers paradise easily. the 2 beadroom apartment we booked is very spacious and with equiped with everything, so we cooked everyday and it saved us a lot of money! If we have another chance to come back gold coast, we definitly we come back contessa again!

But if the owner of the building can repair all the glass curtains in bathroom of room 202, it will be great!

Family of 5 stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment in Jan 2014. Dated decor & cheep furniture like most of Gold Coast Apartments at this price but very clean. Didn't need Aircon for first 4 days, just opened the windows & doors & got blown away. Next 2 days were humid so we used the aircon. Apartment had everything you need to live with spectacular ocean views North & South.
Location was fantastic as traffic in Surfers was terrible. Only minutes to Seaworld & 15 mins to the other theme parks by car without having to go thru Surfers. Secure, undercover parking was great with easy access to lifts.
Kids used the indoor & outdoor pool & walked to the beach on 2 occasions.
We would definitely stay here again & recommend to family & friends.

We stayed at this property for 5 days in early November, and shared a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom unit with another couple. The apartment is in a perfect location in that is near all the action in Surfers, but just far enough away (10 minute walk) so as to not be too loud and noisy. The Tedder Avenue shops and restaurants are only a few blocks away, and the beach just 1 block. The apartment we had was on the 27th floor, so we had a fabulous view of not only the ocean, the inner waterways as well. The unit we had was furnished with all that one could want, and was tastefully decorated, and we felt was very fairly priced. The balcony was huge, and a great place to eat your breakfast. Having managers located in the lobby was also very helpful. The only negative thing I can think of about this apartment is that the outside pool area loses the sun quite early in the afternoon, but it was not a big issue. Paul

Room Tip: The higher the better for the views!

Great location. Beautiful surroundings. Well priced. Central to Sea World, Gold Coast attractions and beautiful panoramic views. Rooms were tastefully decorated and staff very friendly. I would highly recommend the Contessa to all travelers.

We are regular guests at Contessa. The units are good sized and well appointed. The common areas always are clean and well presented. Handy to Main Beach and patrolled beaches. Short walk to Tedder avenue for restaurants and supplies
