“Short stay but very nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

Wonderful view of Cooloongatta beach from our unit. Just across the road, Wonderful restaurants downstairs. The hotel is modern and clean and in a great spot close to restaurants and shops. We would stay there again.

Room Tip: we were only on the 2nd floor but the view was still fabulous. very comfortable

Excellent place to stay if you're vacaying with family. Good location (close to shops and eateries) and excellent accommodations (ours was a 3bedroom unit; spacious and clean rooms, ample storage space and best of all - the gorgeous ocean view!!). Highly recommend to anyone who's coming to this part of the world to stay here.

Ok so, they ARE holiday apartments but they are NOT serviced.
This was a bit new to me. Frankly, as I was only staying for 3 nights I would have preferred a hotel. The front reception folk were a bit off, frankly, quite unhelpful too, like 'this is NOT a hotel, mate' sort of a thing. Idiots.
The rooms were big and well appointed with a marvellous view BUT it's not a hotel. So the soap ran out, the toilet paper ran out, the tea and coffee ran out it had Broadband but NO wifi - IT'S 2013! Most folk I know only travel with an ipad now - seriously.
The TV channels were really poor and the day before I left I got a list of instructions informing not only to clean up but how EXACTLY to do it or incur a steep fee.

Oh and the blinds didn't work so I had to sleep with eye masks on. Annoying, especially when jet lagged.

I'll not be back to reflections I'm afraid. Not n a million. Oh and the pool was full of muscle bound lairy teenage boys flashing their backsides at each other in an in no way gay fashion. - great!

Room Tip: somewhere else.

This is the perfect location with amazing 180 degree views. The apartment is gorgeous with everything you want for a luxurious holiday. The balcony is delightful to sit on and is sheltered from the on-shore spring winds.

Only criticism is the pool and spa area. It's beside the building and in between Reflections Tower 2 and is quite simply a wind tunnel. The designer didn't have a lot of forethought here - it should have been at the front of the building. If it's a windy beach day and you can't spend time on the beach, don't count on the pool and spa area, you will need to find something else to do.

Otherwise absolutely gorgeous!

Perfect location, definitely the best location for a family holiday on the Gold Coast. Our room was fantastic, great pool and staff we're very polite and helpful. Looking forward to our next holiday at Reflections on the Sea. Kenny family

My Husband and I stayed @ Reflections on the sea for 3 nights. Unbeatable deal with booking.com. Arrived after hours and the key was waiting.
Unit 1403 is stunning. Beach views form the bath and main bedroom are amazing. Beach views from 2nd shower and bedroom are just as good.
Luxury appliances, stone bench tops and quality furnishing throughout.
A great central location, great choice of shops and restaraunts to suit most people.
Wind Tunnel effect mentioned by another review is accurate and is especially bad if the outside door is not closed properly.
The only negative I have is the underground car park for our unit was dreadful. There was a constant smell of off rubbish (seafood?) pervading the carpark area which was enough to induce dry retching.
Other than that...a perfect stay.....

Room Tip: room 1403 was divine :) Sunny, Quiet with amazing views!

We rented a 3 bdr apartment in the school holidays. What a disappointment our room was. For the price we paid I'd expect it to be quite nice, it was not. I have stayed at the Bellagio for cheaper than the price of this room. To the owners of unit 505 , spend some money on your unit. The unit is tired and dirty. All of your beds need to be replaced. The bed in the main room is peeling, how revolting. The bedding is old and musty. The unit is desperate for a paint job and the bathrooms are full of mould and so are the ceilings in the unit. My kids were sleeping with what they thought was a blanket but it was a mattress protector. Yuk.. It infuriates me to pay top price for a room that is below standard. It was pointless to complain as the they were fully booked. Also the smoke coming from the room next door was disgusting. People who smokes inside anymore!!! To the middle age blonde lady on the front desk be friendly and smile, thats normally what most people do when you walk into a foyer. Its called customer service. Now I will say we had friends staying in another unit and theres was lovely also we had friends staying in tower two, their unit was also nice. I think as a rule all owners should be made to spruce up there unit after 10 years.

Room Tip: My advice is ask if the rooms are well kept. If you are given room 505 ask for your money back. Loca...
