“nice family holiday in the low tourist season”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

We were on the 22nd floor with beautiful views out to the ocean and to the hinterland. Self-contained with most of the things needed for a good holiday. Two items important to a tea drinker were not included in the kitchen: a tea strainer and a tea cosy for the teapot (a bit disappointing). Otherwise, all good and clean and comfortable.
A brisk walk to the local shops for groceries or takeaways.

Room Tip: All rooms have ocean as well as hinterland views. We felt that the 22nd floor was a bit too high up...

Hi Fiona,
we are really glad you enjoyed your holiday. Sorry you were disappointed about the tea strainer and teacosy, all you needed to do was come to reception an ask.
it is not something that we would normally put in each room, but being a fellow tea drinker I understand. So, anything you feel not provided that would make your stay more enjoyable, please do not hesitate to come and ask. See you next time.

Stayed on the 22nd floor in a 3 bedroom apartment. They were very clean, fresh and spacious. The front desk staff were very helpful and friendly and the views were amazing. We will be returning again.

Have been staying at Esplanade for more than 20 years. There is nothing on the Gold Coast, despite all of the fabulous apartment blocks that have been built over that time, that compares with the amazing views, huge size apartments and balconies, as well as location that Esplanade offers. This time we were on the 22nd floor with 21m of balcony (lineal not square!) space facing SE, E, NE, SW & NW - WOW!!. Sitting on the east facing balcony at this height you feel as though you are high above the beach, with a view forever - in all directions.
Only criticism is that many of the units are getting tired and retain 1980's furnishings. White goods and electrical items though tend to be modern and very functional.
Overall though, very highly recommended - hard to understand how people book units on the Gold Coast with limited or no views of the beautiful Pacific Ocean, particularly when Esplanade is so competitively priced.

What a great review, but so true, every time I go away and stay somewhere with little or no view I sometimes wonder why I just don't book into the Esplanade. Holiday at home.

Every unit is owned by someone different, and the furnishing of each is different, overall they are of great quality. We do have Standard, Gold and Platimun, though.

KInd Regards Sherri & Barry.

We had our first stay at the Esplanade Apartments in April.
We found the complex well maintained and the staff most helpful.
Our apartment on the 7th floor was spacious, clean and the views were amazing.
We were so impressed that we have booked again same time next year.

We love having new people come to stay with us. However, when they return, it is such a compliment, as there are plenty to choose from on the Golds Coast. Look forward to seeing you again next year.

This was our first stay at Burleigh and were really happy with the standard of our apartment and complex. We stayed on the southern side on the 6th floor and was surprised at how roomy it was. The views were superb from every room. The balcony wrapped around the front of the apartment and was a great place to relax and watch the world go by. The apartment had an abundance of storage which was a bonus. Will definitely return and have recommended friends give this accommodation a try.

Room Tip: Recommend no lower than 6th floor to enjoy views.

My family has been holidaying here for 4 times a year for mire than 20 years. The location is no doubt the best on the Gold Coast and these apartments are the largest in size on offer . There are 2 apartments on each floor and each have amazing views of the ocean from every balcony.
A must see is the retail shopping outlets in nearby James Street. A unique blend of retail with a coastal flavour and very different ranges of product.
There is also a regional shopping centre anchored by Big W and Woolworths for all your holiday needs.
The best white sandy beaches patrolled by lifesavers are great for adults and children alike.
The apartments have always been and still are managed so well. The building , pool and tennis court are in great condition.No request is every a problem . There are never any issues with noise and you always receive the best welcome and the very best service here.
Do yourself a favour and spend your next holiday at beautiful burleigh heads at Esplanade Apartments. You won't regret it.

We have been staying here on a regular basis for about ten years. It offers a spectacular view of the Gold Coast from South Stradbroke Island to Coolangatta. Access to the patrolled beaches, walking paths, national park, eating places and shopping is excellent. The apartments are very spacious with a view from every room - either over the beach or from the back towards the Gold Coast hinterland and mountains. The rates vary according the apartments standard of fit out - gold or platinum. Some have been more recently refurbished than others. The complex is very well maintained.

Thanks David for your wonderful review. We always love to see our return guests back and have many who have visited numerous times. Burleigh Esplanade is the perfect location for a relaxing, peaceful, wonderful holiday and is still close enough to the unique Burleigh Heads village to provide numerous cafes, restaurants and surf clubs. We hope to see you back again in the near future.
