enjoyed my holiday as usual views stunning rooms clean spacious owners very helpful with holiday hints location is perfect underground carpark is very safe and secure.
the rooms are very private and spacious.
having the cable tv is great though more chanels would be good.
perhaps a breakfast service would be great also.
the step into the bathroom can be dangerous as nearly stubbed toe on it.
but apart from that an ideal relaxing place to have a great family holiday.
i would recoment for anyone to stay there and i will certainly be going back when next on the gold coast

Room Tip: any room will have great views to all parts of surfers paradise

The location makes it easy to get around, away from the noisy Cavill Mall but close enough to get to, close to the beaches, excellent view and lovely staff. Will look at staying here next time. The rooms are neat and tidy and contained everything we needed for our stay.

Great welcome from Brenda and Steve,who obviously pride themselves on running a helpful and efficient service that is as good as the accomodation.The apartment on the sixth floor had amazing views of the ocean, on one side, from the balcony, or of the waters edge from the bedroom.We stayed with our young family of three children 7,5,and 3.Everything was clean well organised and surprisingly spacious.The laundry room in the apartment with the dryer was really invaluable.The bathrooms and kitchen were both spotless,lots of wardrobe space and very comfy beds.It was a little too chilly to swim in the outdoor pool,but the spa was heated to a cosy 33 and was enormous! So mostly the kids treated that as thier only private pool, the sauna on the side was a bonus.The whole place was very safe and secure,using your key fob to activate everything including the lift and car park was a great idea.We thought it was excellent value,We would certainly go back again.It also had a cute BBQ area and Tennis court as well which we didnt even get to try this time.It was central to everywhere,shops attractions etc and really convenient for hopping onto the freeway for theme parks and Hinterland, but also very relaxing too,watching the sun come up and go down over the sea from the balcony was lovely,big thumbs up.

We only stayed a few nights here but loved it, great views amazing staff and easy to get around. Would go back in a heartbeat too. The room was neat and tidy, everything we could need for our stay. Wish we had longer to enjoy the beach accross the road too!

Room Tip: Ask for high floor

The view is as great as all mentioned, nothing too mock up. I get beautiful sunrise everyday during the week Im there, enchanting night where you see the moon brightens the sea and coast and even if the moon is hidden, the stars are brightly lit up in the sky. You don't need to go out of hotel to see them. I can simply enjoy the view at the living hall. It is close to the surfer paradise prime area where it offers a variety of food. When we miss Asian food, there are good eating outlets at Chevron renaissance. After dinner, we could go to Coles at same venue to buy some grocery for next morning. Instructions are very clear at check in and and staightforward check out. I love the convenience and scenery this place has to offer. My family had a good time and would recommend to our friends and relatives who are visiting Gold coast. Thanks Capricon one for accommodating us and give us such a wonderful holiday experience.
