“A quiet spot to stay”
Reviewed June 7, 2006

Coolangatta has to be one of the under rated places to stay on the Gold Coast. The beaches of this area, Coolangatta and Rainbow Bay have to be the most picturesque in the region providing safe patrolled swimming for chidren and adults alike and awesome surf for the more adventurous.

The variety of accomodation in Coolangatta is very comparable to Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach, in some cases cheaper - budget to the discerning 4 star traveller.

The Bay Apartments sit in between these 2 categories. The building landscape is an oasis of palm trees and stairs. Not for the elderly or wheelchair bound as there are no lift facilities. A family friendly apartment block providing a cold pool and a spa. Some of the apartments have tiled floors which are wonderful in the heat of the Queensland summer but not good in June.

The apartments are furnished to an above average standard and the kitchens are stocked with ample dishes and cutlery.

The secure underground parking facilities are great and the apartment block is kept very secure with guests given swipe tags to use for entrance and exit.

The apartments are within walking distance to the bus stop, shops, restaurants and cafes of Coolangatta along with a great new Spa situated in the Reflections apartments. On the New South Wales side of the road the Twin Towns Club which is excellent value for meals. The supermarkets and local mall is also situated close by.

The staff here are extremely friendly and only too happy to help out with any queries.

Have just returned from a week at the Bay Apartments, Rainbow Bay, Coolangatta. Our unit had 2 bedrooms; 3 bedrooms are available complete with their own hot tub/spa. Apartment was immaculate; kitchen fully (and then some) equipped; living room spacious and well furnished; washer/dryer. Bedrooms (1 with ensuite), living room and dining room all have ceiling fans with remote controls. Lovely pool area with spa. Whole apartment block excellently managed by friendly couple who are very obliging and helpful. Apartments secure with underground parking. Highly recommend. Not on, but only a block from, Rainbow Bay with good swimming and surfing beach (one end of bay sheltered). Didn't want to leave.
