“Totally Awesome Holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

Dates Tuesday 2nd October-9th October 2012
What a totally awesome holiday we had with the help from Surf Parade Resort.This is the second time in two years we have stayed there and can only say a big huge THANKS to you guys.This year we had our daughter with us whom was also catered for with a fold old out double bed/couch,this year we were on the fifth floor and the views were just awesome.The apartment was spectacular as last year with full kitchen including a dish washer this year,great lounge and our private balcony.The bathroom was great as well with our own washing machine and dryer and of coarse the spa bath.The other great feature we like is how the flat screen television is on a swivel that also allows to watch from the comfort of laying in bed.The other great feature is the secure underground car park which allowed us to come and go when ever we wanted to.The swimming pool/spa and the pool lounge area was so spotless and clean which is a great plus with us.Not to mention the nice people we met while there both in the pool area and the resort complex.

Thanks again guys.

Jasmine and Paul Hodgson

Stuff are really friendly and helpful. Facility are nice, the kitchen has everything u need to cook a meals. our room are at level 3, the view is quite limit but still nice. There are bus outside the resort that go to the major tourist spot in gold coast and it come every 10mins (but it not always on time). About 5 minutes you can walk to the main road and there are lot more bus that you can get around the city. Overall it a pleasant stay in surf parade resort.

Room Tip: There are bus stop outside the resort that go to surfer paradise, sea world, broadbeach and jupiter...

Excellent apartments - very clean & modern though only 1 small sachet of dishwashing detergent provided so you'll have to bring your own if you're staying a while.

Very convenient location as shops & eateries all close by ,bathroom, with an incredible ocean view. We stayed in Dec and the weather was very hot luckily the room has reverse cycle aircons that cool us up nicely.

Staff very kind, helpful & generous with their time & advice. We'll definitely stay here again on our next trip to the Gold Coast.

This was our first visit to Gold Coast and had to say that we made the good choice picking Surf Parade Resort. We booked the one-bedroom apartment and was given the unit on the 6th floor. It was a compact one-bedroom apartment with all the necessary facilities in it, nice view with good sun. The day staff were all nice and friendly and efficient, especially Cathy, Kelvin and James. There were a couple of hiccups but noteworthy to mention that Cathy had them resolved speedily. Some minor issues with the after hour staff which we brought up our concerns were also politely noted and that gave us the good impression the resort management staff valued the feedback we provided, which by the way, was our honest feedback. We like the resort location it gave us the chance to check out the vicinity so we went on a little foot mobile. Public transport is convenient, just a short ride to the shopping malls and Sea World and the beach is just 5-6 minutes walk from the resort. We stayed there from Sept 1 - 7 and when we were on board Qantas flight coming home, we were already thinking of the next trip to Gold Coast. Surf Parade Resort would be on our booking list if the price then meets our travel budget.

We had room 36 on the third floor. Furniture and fitting where quite dated but for the price it was fine. The room had a beautiful view and was exceptionally clean. We didn't use the pool or tennis courts but saw plenty of people who did. Late checkin went very smoothly. Excellent location with free secure parking to see the sights of the gold coast. Note: All the apartments are individually owned, we did see another room on our floor with more more modern furniture so it may be the luck of the draw

Surf Parade Resort is located a block or two off the ocean, so you don’t get a beach view, but that didn’t really bother me – you can see the surf from the balcony (just). What the apartments offer is a very comfortable accommodation – spacious, very clean and with ample facilities for the holiday-maker.
The room comes with a full kitchen, separate bedroom and bathroom and a balcony. Fans and air-conditioning ensure the rooms are kept comfortable. Sleep quality was excellent – the area is quiet and there is minimal noise from the street below. The bed was very comfortable and the Jacuzzi in the bathroom was brilliant.
Surf Parade Resort was a pleasant 15 minute walk to the centre of Broadbeach, so it combines good access to restaurants and shops with a quiet and secluded location. The staff were friendly and they seemed to have a huge amount of tourist information on display – even an information booth in the reception area.
Just one thing to note is that the reception is not manned 24 hours. For late check-ins (like me) there is a phone and a safe on the wall to the right of the front doors – pick up the phone and they give you a code to open the safe and get your keys.
I enjoyed my stay at the Surf Parade Resort and would recommend the place highly.

We staryed for 5 nights in August. Had a 8th floor apartment with a view of ocean. You will have to chose Ocean view or afternoon sun with any place in Surfers. Very hard to get both. Overall Surf Parade was a nice place to stay. Clean and comfortable. The apartment was well appointed. The spa bath was nice and the view from the bedroom over the ocean great. We would stay again. For the price it was great value.
