“FANTASTIC PLACE TO STAY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2009

Just returned from 7 wonderful days on the Gold Coast. Surf Parade was a great choice for me and my 2 teenage children. True my son had to sleep on a foldout couch in the lounge and my daughter and I shared a room but we knew that when we booked as this resort usually cater for couples. We choose it as it had been recommended as it was reasonably priced and in a great location. The pool area was great,surrounded by beautiful tropical gardens and we had friends over for a bbq one night and the managers were more than happy for us to do so. It was our first trip to the Gold Coast and Kathy ,James and Dustin gave us heaps of information on where to shop, eat and recommended some great attractions. Sitting on the generous balcony, with a sea view was a perfect way to start and end the day.

My partner, 18month old and I stayed at Surf Parade Resort for 10 nights and loved every minute of it. We were on the 6th floor at the front of the building and could see the sea.
Kathy was great on reception ! Holly says "hello" to Caitlyn!
Great location - nice and quiet at night. Must admit we did find it easier when we hired a car for the last few days as travelling around with an 18 month old on buses was a bit tiring....... especially waiting around having to change buses to get to places wasted a lot of time.
Sooooo very handy having a washing machine in your room (especially with a little one). The kitchen was well equiped and the swimming pool was really clean.
We also loved having a spa bath - so relaxing after a full on day !
Would highly reccomend this Resort to anyone.

Stayed here with my 11 year old daughter for five days and had a wonderful time. The apartments are well equipped, great value for money ($590 for 5 days) and we had nice ocean views - a wonderful way to wake up. When we had friends stay for a night Kathy kindly arranged for the room next door. The bus to the theme parks, airport and shopping stops outside the door and it is cheap. 2 minutes walk to the beach. The warm swimming pool and the relaxing spa are a welcome end to an exciting day at the theme parks even though it it mid winter. The staff are very helpful without imposing, recommending options even if they do not derive any commercial benefit for them. Any request was immediately addressed and they ensure that rowdy/noisy guests act considerately towards others. This is the place to stay if you want great value for money with a touch of class.

Was looking for a nice and clean apartment for the weekend with no noise. So thought we would try Surf Parade. Area where apartment is based is nice and quiet at night time but still close enough to walk to all the sites.
We had booked 2 rooms for two couples and both rooms were of similar standards. Well proportioned in size and with a larges bath / laundry room. Would say that the rooms were in need of a good clean or paint. It was just that they were showing there age. Bath towels you can tell were washed by a laundry company as you can smell that they have been mixed in with other laundry which must have been used in a kitchen as they had a “fast food grease smell”.
The furniture in the room was of the typical rental packages bamboo and floral patterns. Which as you can see with the photos were none to clean?
For $160 a night I was expecting more. The bed I thought was on wheels as when you rolled over in the night the whole thing moved.
Never used the pool or hot tub as from the balcony could see that construction was going on around that area and barricades were in place.
It was quiet at night time and could sleep with window open.
But must say that my quest to find a nice, clean, quiet apartment with an actually see view and not a “squint” around the other apartments still goes on.

We have just returned from another great 2 week stay at Surf Parade Resort, and it was as good as it was 2 years ago when we stayed.
Cathy, James and Dustin were very friendly and very helpful and knowledgeable about things to do in the area.
Will definatly be returning there next time we on the coast!!!

The apartments are kept to very high standard and in a great position. It's an easy walk to either Surfers or Broadbeach, depending how "lively" you want to be. The restaurants in Broadbeach have some really good voucher deals if ordering before 6.00pm.
The couple who run Surf Parade couldn't be more helpful, and offer good advice on anything to do with staying or touring this area.
Transport is good, but I would say a car is a must to appreciate the Gold / Sunshine Coast area.

I don't normally write these but was shocked to read what a couple of guests have written here about the management. I have been at this resort for the past 4 months and couldn't be happier. The truth is that this resort is extremely well managed and the staff are friendly and helpful. The pool and spa are well maintained and even the tennis court looks as if it is brand new. The problem with a lot of resorts on the gold coast is that there is a lot of noise because guests are allowed to do as they please. Here if people start to abuse the resort they are warned that they will be asked to leave. I think the proof of a good resort is in the amount of repeat business it gets and a huge number of the people here return year after year. I have to go home soon but will definitely be returning. It's a little slice of heaven.
