A family of five stayed in apartment 112 for three nights for my mum's 90th birthday. The most amazing thing is the view - huge floor to ceiling windows with amazing views. We watched whales two days out of three and we ate out on the balcony every day. Fabulous kitchen and two living areas. The whole complex is well... More

Have stayed here before and liked it hence the return visit. This is not the cheapest place in Broadbeach but the facilities and location represent good value for us: beachfront, parking, short walk to restaurants and shops, long outside pool that allows you to do decent laps and a heated indoor pool that was a boon in the poor weather....

We had a great time here, had a apartment facing the water on 8th floor. The apartment was really large and very comfortable. We loved the closeness to the Oasis Centre with its supermarket & eating options. Pacific Fair is a short walk away and this is now an excellent shopping destination.

Stayed here for 7 nights with my husband and toddler and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our apartment on the 5th floor was a little dated but it would have been super classy back in the 90's. It still had everything we needed and was so spacious. We actually loved it so much we googled what it would cost to... More

Nice accomodation only thing to comment on is would be more comfortable if the king bed had a mattress topper on it as the bed was rather firm and newer towels as they were quite worn but apart from that all good!
