“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed December 16, 2011

Stayed here for 1 night as i had purchased a Scoopon coupon. Had a great unit on the 9th floor which had been renovated. I couldn't fault the cleanliness of the unit and it also had a good sized balcony. The pool area and surrounding grounds are quite clean and tidy. The scoopon deal came with a bottle of wine (Bowlers Run Sav Bl) and a cooked hot breakfast delivered to you door - I think they must get a local establishment to cook it and deliver it - it arrived hot and they also provided bread so that you could toast it. I found the breakfast was good and tasty.The only problem i guess is that you couldn't choose a time for it - it was at 8am but that was ok you could bo back to bed after it as there was late checkout of 12noon which was great. Would definitely stya here again using a coupon

Booked a studio unit at a good price online, arrived at the apartment to find we had been given a massive one bedroom apartment that could have slept 6 if required and only the 2 of us. apartment was very clean and modern and had everything we needed. Good points included a massive balcony and heaps of seating. having stayed in various gold coast apartments found this one very good value. only one issue with the unit was that the bath is difficult to get in / out of but this is a small issue. pool and spa area good, would gladly stay again if price is right.

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights and loved it. The rooms are clean, the staff are very friendly, the pool and BBQ area is nice and best of all it’s a short walk to the beach or Surfers Paradise. For the price I would highly recommend Ipanema.

My family really enjoyed their stay. The apartments were nice and bright. There is some traffic noise, but it's not too bad. The spa is lovely. There was a cold snap and the blankets are cotton so I went and bought a mink blanket. However the air con worked well; it would be warm enough. Views weren't great but we were on discounbt voucher so can't complain

Room Tip: As a two bedroom we had a one bedroom and a studio with a common entrance. Meant lots of room and p...

First of all at $75AUD per night for a 1 bedroom Apartment, Ipanema is a very good deal, personally the location is great mid way 15 mins walk to Cavill Ave, and about 20 to Broadbeach, although there is a bit of road noise.
We stayed here in January and thought it was fantastic! The Apartment was clean, comfortable, well appointed, everything worked and to be honest we were well and truelly surprised, hence the reason when we seen a deal for $75 per night we thought lets go back.
Before booking we did email and ask if the same room type (eg views, high floor etc) was possible, as it is not always possible for properties to gurantee- no reply (pet peeve). So we booked as it was for the next day and requested again on the booking (fingers crossed). On arrival we were advised similar but not the same, fair enough cant have everything you want all the time. However on entering the apartment, it smelt, the carpet was terribly stained all over, lights out, kitchen cupboards broken, blinds that have not been cleaned for years, hairs on the bathroom floor and in the bedroom. No faceclothes. We asked if we could change rooms but were advised Ipanema was 100% full.
That night we were kept awake from 1.30am from roadworks outside, not Ipanemas fault but it has a bearing when you ask again the next day to move rooms and the answer is still no.
Dont get me wrong, for $75 you can look past a lot of this but the sad thing is that some of the rooms are clearly a lot better than others, possibly one of those situations where some owners upgrade their units and others dont.
I would reccommend to give it a shot if you get deals like we did - it is worth it but dont expect 5 star. Note also that reception is only open until something like lunchtime on Saturdays and closed on Sundays, this needs reviewed for guests satisfaction.
The Pool and reception areas are 5 star. The guys that run Ipanema are nice enough guys.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has been renovated in the last 12 months
