“The Most superb view on the coast.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

These apartments are right on the beach Rd at Alex. We were in Apt 45 which has a superb view of the beach, the surf club and up to Mooloolaba. We were unable to get away on time from home and so we were going to be late for Check In. A phone call fixed that very pleasantly and quickly.
There was a locked door that we were unable to open on arrival, anothr quick call and it was fixed... Again, staff member very pleasant.

The Apartment itself has seen some better days. While comfortable it was shabby and some parts downright filthy. The carpets were stained and awful, and the kitchenware was disgusting... Again, fixed quickly with a couple of runs through the Dishwasher.

I felt that it was good value for the price charged, and though dirty, because of such friendly staff would stay again.

The Pool area and Tennis courts were being revamped, so maybe some of the apartments may get a lick and a promise.

Room Tip: The rooms to the left of the building looking from the street have the most wonderful views... Athou...

We found this to be a nice place to stay ...we stayed in room 23 on the 5th floor and found it very pleasant...yes it was a bit noisy but where isn't when it is on the main road and close to the beach..just across the road from the beach and the skate park for the kids...there is no air conditioning in the bedroom but we did have a good breeze...found the unit clean and comfortable..it was a good price as well as it was half price renovation rate...spent most of the time on the patio in the breeze and enjoying the views..the free internet worked well...

Room Tip: Higher floor for better views..

We first stayed at these apartments in Nov 2011 on the 10 floor.We just loved the apartment and the lovely view. When a special came up last month we had to come back and this time stayed in an apartment on the 6th floor. It was just as great .Even though the pool and tennis court area was getting an overhaul and could not be used, a 50% tariff reduction was too good to turn down.Going to be great when finished.
From these apartments you can sit and watch the activities going on down below with surfing, runners, walkers, swimmers ,and skateboarders.The Surf Club is right opposite and meals are reasonably priced.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. We hope to return next year to try out the pool and tennis court area.

A recommendation from family members and a cheap price led us to book for 7 nights in dec 2012. It did have great views from the 8th floor across to the surf club and beach but really in this case you get what you pay for. The 70's style is tired and concrete lips to room entrances can be tricky. Won't book again I prefer to go to nicer place. This is definitely no more than two star.

Room Tip: Choose another resort

The "resort" is a serious let down. Ive asked for a nicer apartment but was told it doesn't get any nicer. Magnificent sea views is a joke. The bathroom is rotten with a minute bath. They had the cheek to call it a superior apartment! Now im stuck here for 5 nights and I can't cancel.

Fantastic location with amazing views. The room was great, very spacious and comfortable, on the 7th floor with views both north and south! The staff were very accommodating and assisted where possible (with restaurants, bars, sight seeing etc). Great amenities with the pool, sauna, spa and tennis court, and the beach right across the road (especially welcomed with such good weather!). Will definitely be going back sometime soon..

Room Tip: Unit 30 on the 7th floor was recently renovated and has amazing views, of both the north and south!
