Surfers Century Apartments
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 7, 2011

We left our holiday to the last minute to book and were told the apartments were "quite old".
It was a pleasant surprise when we arrived to find the accommodation was brilliant. Modern furnishings, remote controlled ceiling fans, recently renovated bathrooms and laundry. We were on the 16th floor overlooking the beach. Every room had magnificent views and the sliding balcony door opened right up to let in a wonderful breeze. Pool was great to cool off in with a shady area to sit and read. Close enough to everything without being too close. Staff were very friendly and nothing was a problem for them. We will be returning next time we are at Surfers!

Room Tip: Great views 16th floor up on Eastern side!

We stayed with our extended family of 8, staff were very helpful right from booking supplying us with two beautiful rooms side by side on 20th floor,, both rooms had beautiful views, they were exceptionally clean and well furnished. Our family made great use of the beautiful pool and spa, gym and tennis courts. We found the hotel to be in a great location close to Cavill Ave and lots of nice restaurants although far enough out to be quiet and peaceful. Having not long returned from a overseasd trip this hotel compared favourably with others we stayed in of comparable price, rooms quite large and easily accomodated 4 adults in each room. We would be quite happy to stay again and recommend this hotel to our friends

This is a fabulous apartment building with one and two bedroom apartments. It is located close to Cavill Ave - 5 minute walk - and within walking distance to Broadbeach - 15 minute walk. Really close to beach therefore views are great. Has two tennis courts, pool, spa, and Gym. Reception staff are really courteous and helpful. Building maintained really well with very new upgrades, We'll be back!!

Me and my partner have chosen Surfers Century for many years as our holiday destination and always said we'd write some good comments about it, so here it is , I hope it encourages the managers and the friendly staff to keep up with the good job that is exceeding our expectations every year we come for holidays to Surfers Paradise.
The apartment sizes are much bigger than those that we use to stay in which is good when we come with our kids. The apartments we have stayed before have been refurbished and modernised over the years, the good thing is that sinc e we book directly we have been able to stay in our favourite aparment most of the time, as every one of them is different is good to let them know what are your preferences.
Friendly and helpful staff ,closeness to ocean,just crossing over the road and next to the flags,the views from the apartment are great, big and spacious, cable tv and dvd player for the kids, with great facilities such as two tennis courts , and a heated pool are very nice. We are waiting to see how the bbq area looks like when they refurbish it
and all close to attractions, restaurants, landmarks and peaceful surroundings gives us the perfect place to stay every year.
Definetely we'll continue to come and stay in Surfers Century for our holidays!

This is our second visit to Surfers with our young family and first time at Surfers Century. Based on our previous visit this seems to be about par for the course in this price range - hence overall I rate it as average. We just wanted to hang out at the beach and go up to Seaworld and go for a wander into Caville Ave.
Location - i reckon is on the limits for a young family (youngest 6 y.o.) when walking to Caville Ave, but still ok. You probably don't want to be too much closer or the noise will increase. Also, nice and close to the beach and life savers flags (surf club just down the road). Another plus is that it is just around the corner from a golf put put and trampoline trapeze which the kids love doing in the evenings.
Views - we were on the 7th floor on the beach side. However, the wall facing the beach only has one small window that you don't really look out much. Though you could certainly get a view from the balcony, this is an old style block with windows that don't really maximise the views.
Appartment - was musty and needed airing when we walked in .....but it was clean. Windows were really hard to open. Bedding was good. Had to buy a non-stick frypan from Woolies coz non in the kitchen. Stove and dishwasher were basic but functional. Two reasonable size bedrooms with 2 x un-renovated bathrooms (but in reasonable nick).
Pool was a little disappointing. The pool is a focal point for our kids. Basic rectangle shape with no kids features (just small shallow end). Also, the water was a bit cloudy - not exactly crystal clear.
Reception service was friendly enough....and the young guy on the desk at the weekends was very friendly and polite.

Overall......yup.....did the job.

Couple of quick comments for families......don't miss the dolphin show at Seaworld....an absolute highlight. And the water cannons at the back of the park are good fun if you have your cozzies. Also...made the mistake of going to WetnWild on a hot Saturday....we're talking serious crowds.....the only shade was sheltering under someone elses armpit.....wife almost went postal .......left after 2 hours.
