We booked here thru a travel agent in adelaide - we initially booked for 5 nights but ended up staying an extra 4 nights.
although we were off peak tourists to the gold coast, we found the facilitites very good, front desk friendly and the night security helpful. As a family of 5, the 2 bed apartment was a bit cramped bedroom wise - 3 kids in one room was a bit of a tight squeeze!
some of the facilities were closed due to maintainance/upgrading, the onsite shop and takeaway had closed down but the shops opposite and within 5 minutes stroll were more than adequate. pools/spa were clean and working and despite heavy rain for the first 3 days we were more than happy! front desk very helpful, and helped us sort out a problem with our hire car.
Lovely beach only 5 minutes walk away, and easy access to public transport to get to surfers.
Fantastic place to have spent my 40th birthday!
Would def stay there again when we are in aus again!
