Say no more! Don't be fooled by the promos on the Last Minute Websites. We booked a two bedroom unit, three adults and a child and were given an absolute dog! The curtains didn't close. The water ran cold after 4 minutes .. (1 shower for an apartment accommodating four guests ..) cigarette butts all over the deck .. key swipes wouldn't work .. the stairwell smelt like rotting carpet .. You had to unlock the door to get out but anyone could come up the stairs .. security and safety are not paramount. There were no mattress protectors on any of the beds ... cold spa for three days ...in short disgusting ..

Stayed here recently in a two bedroomed apartment with a coast view.

The apartments were easy to find just over the bridge from the main coastal road and we had a lovely two bedroomed apartment with a view of the Gold Coast skyline and the water.

The apartment was clean and spacious. It had a great sized balcony, living area, kitchen and one double bedroom with ensuite and another twin room and a bathroom. The only downside was that my friend complained the twin room single beds were not that comfrtable.

The apartment complex has a nice sized pool , a little on the chilly side! and a BBQ area and also under ground parking for those that need it.

Very good value when 4 of you are staying at the accomodation as it seems a lot at first but when you divide it down it isnt so bad. It is on the quieter side of the Gold Coast which we liked but if you are looking for accomodation being near to the night life then these apartments are not for you.

The apartments are right near to the water so I was able to run along the path by the water each day which was also a plus for me. There is also a shopping centre about 1k away. It's in a perfect location if you want to go to all the theme parks which we did.

My only other comment is that there was no WIFI or internet access which i struggled with.
