Great quality resort, our apartment was a great size for the six of us, modern and clean. Close to everything but bit of a maze inside the resort even to find it! Even got lost in the maze of a car park below which didn't even give you any room to turn round after a wrong turn! ( literally had... More

We stopped overnight so we could visit the Swell Sculptures by the Sea at nearby Currumbin. Very good restaurants a short stroll away so lots of choices for meals and drinks . The resort is clean and well looked after, staff were helpful and our room overlooking the pool and spa was very comfortable. Would have stayed a few more... More

We just stayed here for one night but were very happy. The apartments are extremely spacious and since there is room for four people the price is absolutely ok. It's close to the beach and a supermarket. The kitchen is well equipped and the pool and the jacuzzi were very pleasant. The staff was very warm and friendly. Burl eight... More

We stayed on a ground floor apartment and the pipe noise from people showering and going to the toilet was horrendous. I advised front reception and they chose not to do anything apart from say well the pipes need to be placed somewhere. Really disappointing.

We had a unit with a sea view. Great and relaxing. Would go back again if wanted in the area. Plenty of walking to do in this area. Close to sea and sand, and great restaurants only 5 min walk away. Weather not so spectacular but good anyway.
