We spent 1 week at Surf Parade Resort. Neat and tidy , friendly staff and the room was ideal for my wife and I. Had views of the ocean and the going ons around us. Was told at reception that all the rooms had recently had air conditioning installed , which was a must on the hot days. Enjoyed the pool for a good relax . Intend to return next year. Great time , great staff and great place

Travelled with my partner to the Gold Coast Feb 2011. So many places to choose to stay and picked the Surf Parade Resort as recommended by Trip Advisor. Stayed top floor room 96. Awesome views, comfortable room with a spa, good location, Walking distance to Surfers Paradise and Broad Beach. Would highly recommend to stay here. Required late check out. No problem stayed till 4.00 pm as the room was not booked out for the following night. Was very grateful for that. Nothing was too much trouble. Staff were extremely helpful. Managed a trip to Byron Bay for the day. Not too far and well worth the effort. Go there if you have time and a car.

We stayed at Surf Parade Resort for 2 weeks this Jan 2011. When we arrived we were instantly greeted with the friendly faces of Cathy & James who run the resort. Nothing seemed too much for them. The room was AMAZING. Beautiful sea views, fully equipped even with a spa bath and everything was so clean and we wanted for nothing. Cathy was a mindful of information for local touristy things to do plus told us where the best shops were. Cathy & James go over and above the normal job of managing the resort, they introduced us to other guests who were equally welcoming and also spoke highly of them. We were invited to join the other guests in a birthday celebration whilst we were there with no pressure if we didn't feel like it.
Surf Parade is superbly positioned with a 2 min (if you walk slowly) walk to the beautiful 70k beach and also within walking distance of shops and restaurants plus the infamous Q1 building.
We will definitely return and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this as THE place to stay on the Gold Coast.

I have just come back from a 2 week stay at this resort and would highly recommend it to any holiday goer or someone wanting some good leisure time but within reach of all the attraction of the Gold Coast.

PS: Ocean View a must....over the 6th floor would be ideal

Loved our stay , found the staff very friendly and helpful. The Resort was keep to a high standard and those I spoke to also enjoyed their stay there. Lovely pool and Bar be que area which as we found the Australians pride themselves for. Found other guests lovely to mix with and would love to meet them again should we ever travel "down under" again. It is a top of the line 4 star star complex which we were concerned about as many are not up to standard. Cathy at reception was very helpful with any concern , booking attractions and suggesting activities, all this while she was easy on the eyes. We both loved our stay and were pleased with our travel agents suggestion.

Pleased your travel agent recommended us and that we were up to their standard. All guests are welcomed and our reward is that they have a pleasurable stay and maybe they will return or mention us to others looking for a nice spot to stay. As we say , we think this is our small part of paradise. Thank you for the pleasant review.

My wife and I have now stayed here 5 times over the last 9 years, so know the place pretty well, 3 of the trips have been long duration stays (1 month) over Xmas.

The apartments are 1 bedroom, with separate living and kitchen/ dining areas, large spa bathrooms with washer / dryer. The living areas have sofa beds to accommodate an additional guest if required. There is a relaxed, heated outdoor pool and spa, tennis court and fitness area. There is also an excellent large BBQ and ice machine!!

Rooms feature Foxtel equipped LCD Tv’s (although who wants to watch TV when you are on holiday on the Gold Coast!)

As we have stayed here so many times, arriving feels a little like coming home, and it is this feeling; knowing that we will have another fantastic time on the Gold Coast that keeps us coming back here. In a nutshell, Surf Parade Resort is very friendly, relaxed, and has a truly superb location on Surf Parade Rod

Location

Located on Surf Parade Rd, just a very short distance from the beach, the location is excellent. It takes around 15-20 mins to stroll into Broadbeach and a little more into Surfers Paradise. Hence this is a relaxing spot and the walk into Broadbeach is very pleasant either along Surf Parade Rd itself or along the esplanade. There is a convenience shop and 2 restaurants with a couple of mins walk, along with a BWS!!

Many rooms on the front of the building have ocean views, although we personally prefer an apartment on the back with Hinterland views and the afternoon sun. All rooms have large balconies which is a great feature. The resort has secure underground parking.

Surf Parade Report is good value considering the location.

Reception

Reception open 7 days a week, Kathy and the team are welcoming, helpful and very knowledgeable about the local area. A booking service for tours, tickets etc available.
Draculas and Jupiter’s dinner and show package are well worth doing.


Summary – We always have a great time here and feel welcome, highly recommended. My wife and I are looking forward to returning over Xmas.
