We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday here. Well priced, across the road from the broad water and brilliant walking tracks. Gorgeous pool. Could have stayed longer. Wish we stayed longer. Short drive to Australia fair. Views were great from our apartment. We had a 2 bedroom apartment overlooking broad water.

We booked Crystal bay for two families for our recent family holiday. From the time we book all through our stay we were impressed. The facilities were exactly as mentioned, great, no fantastic views and sunrises from our room. The quieter end of the gold coast, excellent parklands across the road nearby. We'll worth the money. Friendly staff. Thank you... More

We hired the three bedroom corner apartment which had been renovated recently. The furniture looked like it had been selected from a Hamptons catalogue and was all very light and airy, but felt quite cluttered. Each bedroom had a QB/DB and a TV resting on a buffet cabinet/set of drawers. This was good in the larger rooms but in the... More

A good apartment for a short stay or longer. As a couple we found there was plenty of room and everything we needed. Good value when looking at prices at Gold Coast. Convenient location, good view, good amenities. We would stay here again.
