We arrived late from brisbane. And thank goodness they have late arrivals check in that is super easy and systematic. First impression of the apartment was awesomely big with a great 270deg view with full height windows. The main beach is just across the apartment. Waking up to see the sunrise by the balcony was awesome. You can take a 1-2 km stroll by the beach to surfers paradise main shopping area. Tour brochures are free for u to grab and the friendly reception staff will readily help you. Its a bit of a hassle as u need keys to go to the underground carpark and to enter the apartment or the lift after 9 or 10pm but it definitely will put your safety at ease.

The place is a short walk to the beach. The staff was helpful and great. Cleanliness is questionable though. While the unit we got appeared clean, my husband saw a cockroach in the master bedroom. There was also a comb with blond hairs stuck to it in the master bedroom shower stall - we are Asians, no blonds! My guess was the housekeeping don't bother to do a thorough job. You have to clean the apartment yourself - vacuum cleaners provided. They will only clean your room once midway through your stay if you stay for 8 days or more. Otherwise you have to clear your own rubbish etc.
The sea view from the unit was good even though I was on the third floor. Some units in the building are used by long-term residents. It is a self-contained unit so sometimes when we were outside the unit, there can be an overpowering cooking smell. Despite the questionable standard of cleanliness, we were quite ok with the unit. You can also have a good walk to Surfers Paradise.

During our stay, on our last night we discovered cockroaches in the cupboard in the kitchen. This was extremely unhygienic and unsanitary as the cockroaches were seen at the bowls which we used to put our food in. We also found baby cockroaches which proved that they were there for a long period of time to lay eggs. The cockroaches did not supposedly fly in the window, as argued by the receptionist.

Overall, i will never come back again.

We have regular pest control procedures in place and Queensland is hot and humid at this time of year where the odd insect can fly into apartments.

Windows and Doors are generally left open in apartments to enjoy the ocean breezes and views of the beach that Seacrest does offer.

Thanks for your recent stay at Seacrest.

We stayed here in October 2013 and the Unit was beautiful, clean and well appointed.
The staff were awesome and the facilities, i.e. pools (both indoor and out) and games room were well used. We unfortunatley stayed in the week prior to the V8 races so had some noise and a lot of blocked roads in preparation for the race, so my only advice would be to avoid October, but otherwise it was close the shops, themeparks, public transport etc and we would certainly stay again.
