We stayed here over the week of Christmas as a family of five. It is ideally and centrally located to the beach as well as shopping centers and attractions at Surfers and theme parks. The pools are the best feature of this place - they are large and well maintained and pretty amidst the gardens. Our room was on the third floor but that suited us and we had a nice view over pool. Our room was pretty modern and well appointed and had everything we needed in a self contained apartment. The only negative was that it could have been a bit cleaner on entry - like mopped floors and washed blankets. Also the stairs needed vacuuming more often. Overall a great place for a family summer vacation! Would not hesitate to return.

Stayed 10 nights. My son cried the first night as his bed was so uncomfortable. The double bed I stayed in was sagging on the sides. Really slippery tiles throughout unit. When they get wet which is goin to happen you have to be VERY careful. The lounge had stuffing coming out of the rips. saw a couple of cockroaches. Pool was not heated enough And had scum floating on it.
At least he weather was good an we could go down the beach and have family picnics.

We stayed 8 nights and this accommodation was perfect for our family. Great location, easy access to theme parks and other entertainment. Having our own kitchen made it so easy, and we loved the swimming pools!

We will definitely be back and I recommend it as a great place for families to holiday.

We stayed at Grande Florida Resort for the first time, in late nov. At first we thought oh dear in the middle of scholies, what have we done! But we were guiet supprised with the lay out of the resort and its facilities. Great spot near the beach and only a short drive to shopping!!! Enjoyed our stay we will be back!!!!

We had our girls only family holiday end of November at this wonderful resort. We stayed 5 nights/six days and wish we had more time. Very comfortable apartment, large, clean. A bit dated furniture, but nothing we could not live with. The lagoon pools were the highlite of the holiday, we spent lots of time in it. Enjoyed the lush tropical palmtrees & greeneries. Staff were very velcoming, close to Coles, pizza shop, etc. Lovely place to have a week holiday. We will be coming back. Thank you!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Before I start this is a fantastic resort.. Great location, next to a beautiful beach with direct access; two big lagoon pools both family friendly one heated; great staff and clean facilities. Ideal for a short break, you'd have thought. However, our stay started with being put in an apartment, number 55, which was not only considerably less attractive than those on the website but it reeked of cigarette smoke. We have an understanding that a lot of the apartments in resorts are privately owned so renovations and updating is down to individual owners therefore the standard of fixtures were easy to overlook. Butt (not a misspell) to put a family in accommodation that smelt like a 70's nightclub with furnishings to match is a little bit poor. That was night one.
The next day we spoke to management who sent a cleaner round immediately who confirmed the previous tenants were Smokey MaFag and his missus Fagash Lil. She was surprised we were put in there but did her best to get rid of the smell and did well. Excellent service. That night though ruined all the good work. We were disturbed at 9pm by a 'dude' humping stuff up to apt 72. When quizzed by my wife he said 'we have more coming up cause we've spent $5000 on this festival'. Hmm.. At 11pm we found out what. Slash Yeardrums and his mates had a full on gig going on!
Another call to the a manager required.
Day three and we had a great day. Lovely spot. The night was a different matter. Suffice to say the group of schoolies they put next door put paid to the last night of our short break. A call to the manager fixed it but the holiday was ruined.
So, in a nutshell, ask for a renovated apartment, one which has not been recently used as a kipper factory and preferably not 4 weeks either side of schoolies week. If this was my establishment I would protect the Getaway 'Best Family Holiday' tag and put families first.
