Santorini by the Sea
Ranked #29 of 49 Gold Coast B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 9, 2013

My partner and I stayed at the Santorini for three nights in October last year. Being a special occasion I asked for high floor room, which was not delivered, I found the staff to be slightly unaccommodating at times, we required information on how to get to theme parks and a vague uninterested response is what we received.
Apart from that I found it to be a pleasant place, the rooms were sunny, large and the pool was fantastic, there is a nice cafe/bar next door and bus stop across the road and the beach is only a 5min walk away.
Great location and I loved the Sanotrini/greek feel to it, it was very romantic.

I stayed in an apartment with some friends. I think the decor is quite outdated, and beds were a bit old and squeeky, but overall it was relatively clean and served its purpose for the price we were willing to pay for one night. If you don't want to be in Surfers Paradise then it's in a good location with shops at your doorstep. The beach down the end of the road is eroding though so you have to walk a bit further to actually set foot on the sand. Beware also if you don't like stairs there are lots at this place - made it a bit difficult with luggage, but it's not the end of the world. Overall it was a pleasant stay, I probably wouldn't rush back, but for one night it did the job!

We travelled with a relatively large group over the New Year period and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Nothing was too much trouble for Daniel and his team and all our requests were met in terms of changed and additional bedding etc.

These apartments are a good size and located in a great spot with everything you need at your doorstep. Nobby's Arc just below has a great breakfast and is open until late for drinks, there is an IGA, bottle shop and restaurants just a short walk up the road and not to mention the beach and surf club being about 10 mins walk away. Thanks for a great trip!

These apartments are huge, which would be great if your here with your family. Plenty of room for the kids, balcony good size, bedrooms are a good size and the living area is huge.
There is a dining table and couches, kitchen has all you need with cutlery/plates/toaster pots and pans etc.
Bathrooms are great as in there is plenty of room for vanity bags and great cupboard space, a little dated but very clean.
The bed is very hard, I actually felt the springs and the linen could be replaced. It's bit old and scratchy. But it is ok. Tea / coffee in room, you'll have to ask reception for a hair dryer though.
Location is fantastic, 5 minute walk to the beach and the boardwalk ( that goes for km's ). Public transport is just on the main road, 2 minute walk.
There are heaps of cafe's and Bar's around which is fantastic. 'Little beans' and 'Ark Bar' are two of the most popular and the best restaurant on the Gold Coast 'Helenika' is just there too, but you'll need to book for that one. Food is superb !
I would go back and stay, it has all you need. It's convenient, clean and roomy.

Room Tip: There are no elevators so keep in mind if you can't do stairs or have a lot of luggage.

We stayed at Santorini in March for a week. The location of the property is great. There are a plethora of cafes and shops and it is walking distance to the beach. The property is just off the main road so it is really easy to hop on/off busses heading north and south on the highway. The units themselves are very large and it was great for our family. The unit we stayed in was well maintained and tidy. It was a little older but it was perfect for us as we have a very young and active child. The owners were lovely and very helpful. We would definitely return to Santorini for another family holiday.

The place is tidy but dated.
Management did try but iif you plan to stay when it is hot don't ask for apartment 39.
It is up the back, adjacent to the hill. There is no breeze and the single piddling little air conditioner is barely able to cool the lounge room let alone the 3 non air conditioned bedrooms. It was so bad we moved mattresses onto the floor in the loungeroom just to sleep. After 5 nights we gave up and left and believe me they DO stick to their "early departure-no refund" policy.
It was so bad we lost two nights accommodation just to be comfortable. Never again thanks Santorini.

Room Tip: NOT 39 in Summer until the owners aircodition the bedrooms.
