We stayed for 5 nights from 3-8 December. Gorgeous view, extremely large, modern and clean apartment! Great value for money! This was our last holiday before our first baby and we will definitely be coming back every year for family holidays. Honestly couldnt fault a thing!

After staying in an extreemly disapointing apartment (hillhaven apartments) we checked into Ambience on Burleigh Beach, and what an amazing place to stay! Friendly and honest managers, modern and clean apartment with so much on offer for a reasonable price. Spa in each bathroom, clean well equiped kitchen, excellent parking safe and secure.Great bbq area, pool and spa were amazing!

Definatly will be returning in 2014.

We stayed in a 3 bed apartment for our wedding and also had family and friends staying here too for a total of 5 apartments.

The apartments were nice but we all thought it a bit rude that after paying $290 per night they only gave us 1 roll of toilet paper for each bathroom for four nights with a sign there saying if we wanted more we had to go and buy it. If we wanted an extra towel it was $2 as they only gave us 1 per guest. Same with the dishwasher, washing machine, etc.

I would have much preferred to pay an extra $5 per night for them to include extra towels, toilet paper, dishwasher tablets, etc.

There is a lot to say for staying in a motel, we won't be back

We had the 3 bedroom 3 bathroom apartment on the 12th floor of the back block. Incredibly roomy with a superb view of the beach straight out in front. Big balcony with table and plenty of chairs. Nicely appointed with filtered water available on the fridge which was a bonus. Had centrally controlled air conditioning which you could turn off in the main bedroom, but this did mean that the temperature fluctuated quite a bit between the bedrooms and the sitting area. Could have done with a second bedside table in the main bedroom and bedside lamps in this room. Minor issues really - we had a superb time and management were great.

We booked in a 2 room apartment. Before our arrival I received an email informing me that as our check in date is on a public holiday, there will be no reception. However we were given very clear instruction to get the keys from the locker and how to open the secured car park, the car park lot to park and also the lift to take.
The security is very good and access to the apartment is by only by a coin like chip inorder to open the main door and to access to your floor.
The 2 room apartment is very huge and new. It has a open concept kitchen with new kitchen utensils. The living room has 2 huge sofa which can sit up to 6. There is also a large LCD TV in the living as well as the 2 rooms.
The balcony is very big and it overlooks the beach. The 2 rooms are spacious and there are 2 bathrooms.
Just below the apartment there is a few resturants. However if you want more choices, there are more eatery and shops just across the road.
We enjoyed jogging on the burleigh beach as it is not as commercialized and crowded as surfers paradise. The beach is clean, people are very friendly and the view is really spectacular. We will return to stay here as we enjoyed every moment.

I am writing this a year after we stayed at Ambience but my motivation was after my wife and I recently stayed at a different apartment block on The Esplanade and had a much superior apartment for nearly half the price we paid for staying at Ambience.
Our original booking was made via flightcentre (never again !) after we received vouchers from our wedding. My wife requested a room with a sea view and we were duly given one,,,,, well if you went to the far right of the balcony and lent over and peered past the building in front. The apartment was very new and swish but not very functional and the kitchen had very little in the way of additional pots, pans and appliances.
Sorry for the negative review but we paid an awful lot of money for what I now consider a very average (if not poor) apartment and I would not recommend this place without checking the apartment out first before paying for it.

Room Tip: Check the room before you pay as the south side rooms have poor views and traffic noise

I chose this place after reading rave reviews despite my reservation with self-rated hotels, but I realised it was a big mistake the minute I arrived at the unit which was on the wrong side of the building at the back with traffic noise coming in even with all the doors and windows closed, and all I could see from the lounge was the building next door a few metres away. I think it's very unfair to charge the same rates for the back units as the front ones with ocean views and quiet streets. Things still looked fairly new and shiny, but I didn't like their furnishings much either. It was a bit like in a motel than in an upmarket hotel. They also left a note effectively asking to remove all rubbish from the apartment before the departure. I wouldn't be going back there ever again.

Room Tip: Avoid back units if possible
