This was our first experience with Self Serviced Apartment, but worth it...We chose this property after reading good reviews on TA.
Pros: property is well placed in terms of vicinity to a beach- a short walk of 5 min and you are on very nice, clean, sandy beach. Though the resort is not very small, its efficiently run and have all amenities- a pool, BBQ facility, small Gym as well. Front-end staff was very helpful, check-in and check-out were very smooth as well. We had requested a higher floor, ocean facing room- which was what we got- a thanks to all guys there. View from 9th floor was very nice and we enjoyed breakfast / evening snacks in the balcony on most of the days of our stay. Kitchen was full with a microwave and utensils. A washing m/c and dryer with ironing board- all facilities what you can ask for. On grocery shopping- 5 min walk you have a small store, while 15 min walk can take you to Oasis Shopping mall which has a Woolworths. A bust stop is also nearby where you get s Sea-world bus, for other buses you have to go to GC highway, a short walk from the property.
Cons: Room was little small, for 3 of us (2 adult and a kid). In-room amenities are little old, in particular the washing m/c making very loud noise when on dryer mode. Though a beach is nearby, if you are looking at a property just on SP or Broadbeach- this is neither. Both are 15-20 min from the hotel. Also, if you are new to the area and need some help like a concierge of a hotel- you have to plan it well as office timings are like 9to5 (with weekends having even lesser hours) and you may not find front staff available beyond this hours.
All in all, though, we enjoyed our stay here. We highly recommend this for people looking for a nice property in quiet area with a nearby beach.

Room Tip: Go for higher floors and ocean facing rooms.

Your comprehensive review is really appreciated and will give other guests a good insight into self service apartments. Most owners have updated their washing machines and it is a good reminder to get onto the few that are left. Please to see that overall your stay was a really positive one and hopefully we see you again. Cathy

I came here with my husband & another couple in November.
From the moment we arrived everything was perfect. My husband & I were on the 7th floor & our friends were on level 5. We only had to deal with front desk 4 times once to check in, Once to book theme park tickets, Once because I lost my thongs lol (which were found at the pool) & then when it was time to checkout.
Our room was bright & welcoming.it wasn't super modern but everything we needed was there & in great working order.
Parking underneath was easy to use & there was plenty of space.
The pool area was clean & set out really nicely.
In a fantastic location. I would have to say some block out curtains would be great though as the sun rises really early.
I loved our stay & for the price it was unbelievable.
I will deffinatley be staying here again when we return to the gold coast.
Thank you Surf Parade for making our stay a great one.

We stayed here last year and liked it, so this year we came back for another holiday. It is still one of the best accommodations in GC. Last year, my only complain was the hot water pressure in this hotel. well, to our delight, they have actually installed new (high pressure) fixtures. so taking a shower after a dip on the beach was awesome this time.
The front lady is the most fantastic reception person I have seen. She is still so caring and helpful. I would come back here over and over. Thanks guys

Room Tip: This hotel has very good seaview rooms, so get one if you can.

Arrived end of October for three weeks stay and found the resort exactly fitted its description. The unit was all we hoped for and very well equipped we had a sea facing unit on the sixth floor with magnificent views only drawback was the 4 45am sunrise as the bedroom only had vertical blinds. It was great though to be able to watch this from our bed! Reception staff very friendly and gave us all the immediate information we required on check in as to location, shops etc. Later on trips were arranged for us and all enquiries dealt with most efficiently and in a friendly manner. Two minor repairs to the blinds in our unit were resolved immediately. Pool area was immaculate each morning and a pleasure to visit. The resort is about halfway between Broadbeach and Surfers Paradise and a bus stops outside, however we found the walk much more pleasant especially along the beautiful beach. I have no hesitation in recommending this property, believe me you will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: Front facing rooms have sun on balcony only until about 10 30am.
