The only reason we give it 2 star is because of the view. However the view doesn't add up with the standard on the apartments. When you pay over medium price you really expect to get at least something that looks like 4 star. The apartment was 2+ star at best. The cleanliness was terrible as well. Old hairs in... More

Our room was on Level 16 and looked directly out to the big blue of the Coral Sea and beach below. Just stunning. The apartment had everything we needed and was very comfortable. The advantage of Ocean Plaza is that is on top of The Strand Shopping Centre so it is only a trip down the lift directly to Woolworths,... More

Stayed here last year to celebrate my special birthday. This was a treat for my family and ended up a complete waste of our money and time. The hotel room was absolutely filthy, the furniture beaten up and old, hair and sand everywhere(not ours!),and neighbours kept us up all night with loud music both nights. The pool area was disgusting,... More

We stayed in this resort for a few days. We paid full price and it was not cheap. There was 1 split cycle air conditioner that was very noisy.

We chose to stay here because of it's location; close to shops, beach and restaurants which was ideal. Our room was on the 13th floor (61) excellent views across to Surfers Paradise high rises especially at night and nearly 360 degree vista of the beach. We did feel this room could do with a re-vamp, dated furnishings, leather lounge suite... More

Great location and discount given at Surf Life Saving club across the road. Good size pool. Cons. No air conditioning in the bedrooms, (ok for my visit but not so good for summer). Windows do open but not keen on leaving the windows open for the children. The main bed was extremely hard and uncomfortable. Only paid wifi available.
