Took the wife on her first trip to Surfers Paradise. When we first entered our apartment we were both blown away by the view of Surfers Paradise Beach and the Pacific Ocean!! I used to holiday on the Gold Coast a lot as a kid and have traveled to great beaches all around the world and I forgot how good Surfers Paradise beach is. Olympus Apartments has an amazing location, close to everything. Friendly staff, clean rooms, and great for the price. I'll be coming back.

Room Tip: Buy food at the local supermarket and save money cooking at the apartment. Bring your laptop and use...

We travelled as a family to the Gold Coast for the first time and we were very happy with the 2br apartment. The place has minor faults (rust, wear and tear), but overall the apt was clean and the kitchen was adequate. The view is beautiful and a great location to be in to enjoy the vibe of Surfers Paradise. Helen at reception was lovely and was alway so friendly.

Olympus Apartments has been around for a while but is well maintained and in a great location- in fact right over the road from the main beach area. Where can you get a one bedroom apartment in good condition for less than $100 a night by booking on the discount web sites?.
We arrived late afternoon to a friendly welcome by the front desk and were soon in our apartment after having parked our car in the security basement carpark (included in cost). We were on the first floor and noticed all apartments have a balcony facing the beach, a real bonus. Our unit was a little tired but neat and very clean- a fresh coat of paint would work wonders. Our bedroom had a comfortable queen size bed, bathroom has a shower, no bath, kitchen is small but well equipped,however, no dishwasher. There is a small dining table and two lounges . The tv has foxtell at no extra cost.The laundry had a newish washing machine and a dryer. There is no air con but ceiling fans and there is a sea breeze if it gets hot at night.There is a small heated pool, a half size tennis court and a covered bbq area with a quality bbq. The grounds are neat and well kept. The apartment is a short walk to the main shopping area and restaurants. It was quiet during the week but a bit noisy at night on the weekend - but not a serious problem. Olympus gets 10/10 for location, 10/10 for price and 7/10 for the unit itself. We enjoyed this place and would stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor for great views

So many choices on Gold Coast. After reading other positive reviews, called Margaret at Olympus directly and were able to book the exact apartment we were looking for. Oceanfront view with balcony--awesome! Very attentive management; friendly and helpful. Grrrreat location; close to everything. Walking distance to restaurants, shopping, Thai massage and surf lessons. Thank you, Alan, Margaret and Mark (your lovely wife too) for making our stay so effortless and comfortable---won't soon forget that panoramic oceanview!

Room Tip: Oceanfront is the Best
