“Large and Comfortable”
Reviewed March 15, 2012

We had a 6 night stay here - the apartment is rather large and comfy but furnishings are rather tired. Chairs around table, fabric was well worn and holed.
Major fail from the receptionist - didn't mention the tag with the keys was needed to swipe access for the lift, back entry and pool. It was a couple of days into our stay when another guest showed us, before that we had been lucky to get entry when others where around. I would have felt more comfortable if the windows had flywire screens, far too easy for children to lean too far out. Depending on fitness, could be considered just a tad too far away from the centre of Surfers Paradise/restaurants etc.
The front doors where locked rather early in the day, I'm guessing when reception was closed, okay not a big thing to enter/exit from the back door but still annoying.
Would I go back there - not sure - the views were superb but I think there are loads of other places around which can do the same and make you feel more welcome.

Room Tip: we were on the 9th floor, and the views were fantastic. I would recommend asking for an apartment w...

We arrived to find our room unclean, crumbs on lounge, underlay sheets dirty, dusty bed side tables from previous people. Informed managers at least three times, about room unclean. Manager made us show cleaning staff room can you beleive, and cleaning staff asked us were to clean " Doesn't That Ring Bells" Male manager argumentive. Renovations on ground floor, we were staying on level 1 floor, so we could hear power tools and fumes from painting in progress. dirty clothes found out side bedroom window and cigarette butts as well Light blubs fell out of socket in laundry and towel rail fell off when towel placed on it. Will not be staying at Faulty Towers again

This is probably one of the most difficult things I have ever written. You can see from my previous reviews that I have been a huge fan of this place for many years. We recently had the opportunity to return prior to heading overseas for an extended skiing holiday. The first thing we noticed was that alot of money has been spent on the place (new pool & pool area, new BBQ area) On the surface it looked impressive. But try using the new facilities and you will quickly discover that it is mutton dressed up as lamb. The BBQ's are inadequate and absolutely filthy. When I queried the 'new' management they simply said "it had been cleaned earlier."
The cleanliness of the pool, the reception area, the grounds and our room were second rate and certainly not what we had experienced in previous years. The new managers have let the place go. It is difficult to say but I will never return! I cannot recommend this property.

Room Tip: Try another property

Spacious, clean, modern, comfortable, kitchen fully equipped, most importantly, it's only one street to the beach! Wake up everyday to the sound and smell of the ocean baby. =D

We spent a week at the Pacific Plaza apartments and had a range of family from grandparents to teenagers. It was a great time for the kids - with the theme parks, beaches, esplanade shopping - and also relaxing for those that preferred to just read a book. The apartment was well located, near the shopping and theme parks. Clean and had all the amenities (dishwasher, laundry, oven). I would have liked for the apartment to have air conditioning as some nights were very hot. There was a sea breeze but as I prefer not to leave the doors open at night, the breeze in the room was limited. Other than that, great apartment and definitely recommended. Bring your own extra towels, need to buy dishwasher, laundry detergent, etc as they only supply enough for a 2-3 days stay.

My husband and I have been staying at Pacific Plaza for more than 23 years. The first time, we went as a couple with some friends back when I was 19 and now go there with our kids who are now in their mid to late teens.

Pacific Plaza is an excellent place to stay, the views are beautiful, the rooms are very clean and have everything you need. Also, the staff are very friendly and helpful. Not to mention, the rates are fantastic, even in peak season.

It is so central to everything. A beautiful short stroll along the beach, which is at your doorstep, will take you directly into Surfers. Shops and Alfresco dinning are at your fingertips.

We are returning in early January 09 for a short stay of 4 nights because we love it so much. We would never consider staying anywhere else when we stay at the Gold Coast.

  • Liked — Very clean & spacious
  • Disliked — No airconditioning but great sea breeze
