    Check your bill. Our account was much higher than that which was quoted on their own website! And their rudeness when questioning why was disgraceful. There are too many other properties on the Gold Coast to bother staying at this one.More

    Hi We stayed there back in January and one of the pools is heated. I don't think you will be disappointed if you decide to stay here. The tennis courts, bbq area and pools are awesome and its a short walk to the beach.
