Stayed at the Marrakesh apartments in the first week of December 2007. Had a fantastic stay in a one bedroom apartment on the seventh floor with views towards the ocean and Surfers Paradise. We booked through the wotif website for a great price of $110 per night. Upon our arrival we were greeted by very helpful and courteous reception staff who made checking in a breeze.
The apartment was lovely, quite a good size for two people. Modern decor and appliances (including dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer) comfortable furniture (both bed and lounge) and lovely balcony overlooking the buildings of Surfers and the ocean. The apartment was very clean and comfortable, and the airconditioning was fantastic as the weather was very hot during our stay. Didn't hear any traffic noise or any other noise from any of the neighbouring apartments.
Location is great, far enough away from the hustle and bustle and subsequent noise of Surfers Paradise, but still within walking distance. A great peaceful location, a minutes walk to the beach and also just a short stroll down to the lovely cafes and shops of Broadbeach. Bus stop just outside the driveway, and a 30 second walk to the highway for other bus routes.
We found the pool and garden facilities to be great. Both outdoor and indoor pools and spas were very clean and enjoyable to use. Beautiful gardens with palm trees surrounding pool and outdoor areas. Didn't use it, but also a nice little gym with various equipment to use if so inclined. Rooftop garden provides fantastic views of almost 360 degrees.
Only visited the on-site 'Kesh' poolside Bar and Cafe once, for their buffet breakfast. Upon checkin we were given a 2 for one voucher for the breakfast which is usually $9.00 per person. There was a selection of self serve cereals, toast, fruit salad, yoghurt and mini muffins plus tea/coffee/juice. I don't think its great value if you were to pay $9.00 per person, but with the voucher making it $4.50 I found it quite a nice breakfast for the price.
Check out was at 10am, but a locked baggage room is provided by the resort so you can keep your suitcases there until you are ready to leave. Once again, on checking out the staff were very pleasant to deal with.
Overall, we had a wonderful time at the Marrakesh Resort. Based on our experiences I would recommend it to anybody, and will certainly stay again on our next visit to the Gold Coast.
