As a former permanent resident of Surf Parade Resort ,I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. As usual, my ocean view room was awesome. Being November, watching the storms roll in during the evening is awesome from the Ocean View side of the building. With virtually 24 hours notice of my arrival, my room request was granted to a great ocean view on the ninth floor and up to is usual high standards. The amenities are top of the line, with a great pool/spa/bbq/sauna area for those looking to relax. If you require any extras, nothing is ever a problem and to top it off, the weather was fab for most of the 2 weeks. Its always great to catch up with Cathy, James & family, aswell as fellow permanent residents who make this place a warm, safe & happy home away from home. Would recommend to anyone looking for a central but quiet, beachfront spot.

Thanks Lucy , always a pleasure to see people like you returning and as you mentioned , we are a central but quiet and relaxing spot. Most of our numerous return guests mention this is the reason why they keep booking at Surf Parade Resort. Great catch up and hopefully we see you again soon. Cathy

A good friend of mine was scheduled to compete in an MMA event at Coolangatta, so he booked this hotel in Surfers Paradise, I don't know how much he paid for it. It is clean, has two single beds, lounge, kitchen, washing machine, and basically all the necessary items we needed. The views are spectacular, of other buildings and the famous sandy beach. I would love to stay here again.

we arrived 2 minutes before office closing time on a sunday, which is earlier than the week days, but there was alternative arrangements for after hours check in. This was no problem for the courteous staff at all. They asked if we were going to the V8 super car racing that day, which we had planned to, and she gave us 2 entry tickets worth $176! We were extremely grateful for this kind gesture and thoroughly enjoyed the racing.
Our room on the top floor was very clean and well appointed with great sea views and had plenty of room to relax in. All amenities worked well in the room and was well maintained. There was no chopping board in the kitchen so we mentioned it to reception and they delivered a new one within a couple of hours. Great service. The pool and bbq area was lovely, clean and tidy.
We really enjoyed our stay here, with walks along the beach every morning, and will stay here again.

Thanks for the great review and pleased to see that things went well for your weekend at the V8 racing. Pleased to see that you mentioned the missing chopping board , as it is a reminder to readers that should there be an issue at the time of your stay, contact Reception so your experience is a positive one. Nothing can be done to correct or verify an issue once you have left. Thanks for taking the time to review Surf Paraded Resort and looking forward to your return. Cathy

The apartment was extremely clean and well laid out, with all the necessary appliances. The reception staff were particularly helpful and eager to be of assistance, even going so far as to allow us into our room early after a long flight. The pool is of a reasonable if not overly large size, and the outside area was very well looked after with a good sized barbecue area. The Resort is ideally placed between Surfers Paradise and Broad Beach, meaning both were within easy walking distance. The beach itself was literally around the corner from the apartment, and local shops were also easy to reach. We stayed for three weeks in September and will definitely be returning on our next visit.

My wife and I stayed here for the month of October. In the run up to our trip I regularly checked this review site and I was confident of a good stay. This expectation was realised and more. We arrived around 0930, well before check in time, but within 30 minutes our room was available. 7th floor with ocean view. It was very clean and comfortable. Well kitted out with appliances. The sun hammered the windows from 0600 in the morning - what a downside!! - but we found that with it getting dark around 1800 we adjusted our body clock to going to bed, and getting up, earlier. Remember that this is self catering. The weekly service is merely a change of bed linen and towels.
The resort is quiet and well situated between Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach. Easy walking distance either way. The No. 750 bus runs straight outside. obtaining a Go Card from 7/11 store entitles you to a 30pc fare reduction. We found that is was just as cheap and often cheaper to use a taxi.
We tended to head into Broadbeach where there is a range of good restaurants, often offering big discounts for early dining. This makes it more affordable for UK visitors. Best $10 I spent was to join the Northcliffe Surf and Lifesaving Club, halfway to Surfers. Visitors are made most welcome and your membership gets you discounted food and drink.
Such was our satisfaction with our accommodation, we had little need to interact with the staff but they were always pleasant and any advice given proved to be good. As we had a mid-afternoon pickup I asked about a late checkout and, as our room was not being re occupied that day, this was not a problem.
What you see on their website is what you get. An excellent value for money resort, right at the magnificent beach and I will have no hesitation in returning.

My partner and I stayed here at the end of October during the weekend of the V8 races. The apartment exceeded all our expectations. Beautiful ocean views and the apartment itself was very clean and had everything we needed including a full kitchen, and washing machine and dryer. You even have an in-room spa! It is also in an ideal location - within walking distance to both broadbeach and surfer's paradise but nice and quiet. If we come back to the Gold Coast this is the only place we will be staying!

Room Tip: Ask for an Ocean view room on a high floor

my husband and i stayed here for our honeymoon, and it was the best experience i could have hoped for. ken helped us out alot even thou we hadnt given him much notice (2 weeks max) and he organised a few room shifts so that we could have hte 1 room over our whole 7 night stay. i loved waking up and being able to watch the sun rise over the water, and the fact that it had secure underground parking made it so easy to be comfortable leaving our car there while we walked into the heart of surfers almost every night, as it is only a 10 minute walk. ken set us up with theme park tickets, and was so friendly to talk to. all in all we both loved the stay and cannot thank ken enough for all his help. we will definitely be back!
