Everything about the unit we stayed in was perfect. From location, view and amenities , you could not get a better place to stay. We stayed in unit 45 on the 15th floor, 2 bedrooms , 2 bathrooms , very spacious and is very modern and has everything , including air conditioning. Great BBQ /pool area.
View is amazing , location is perfect -2 minute walk to patrolled beach, 5 min walk to some of the best restaurants and oasis shopping centre, 10 minute walk to Casino, 15 minute walk to pacific fair and draculas . We drove up , however , our car did not leave the underground carpark as there was no need for it.
The staff are friendly and very helpful. Totally recommend.

The staff at the Talisman were really friendly and helpful, I would recommend booking direct as they really try to accommodate all your needs. We had a 2 bedroom apartment with a huge balcony and the most amazing views of the sea. The apartment was really spacious and had everything you needed, it was super clean and in a perfect location. 2 mins away was a great shopping centre and loads of lovely cafes, restaurants. The pool ( loved the spa) and BBQ areas were very clean and well maintained. I would highly recommend and we will definite be back.
Many Thanks from The McEwens from Noosa.

I travelled with my 13 year old son and a girlfriend and her 15 and 20 year olds. We had separate 2-bedroom apartments, mine on the 20th Floor, hers on the 11th. Everything has more or less been covered in other reviews so I will keep it brief: the views to the ocean are wonderful and having that as the first thing you see in the morning is terrific; the Queen bed was really comfortable, the singles not so much as they were quite hard but some people like that; clean as a whistle; single air conditioner in lounge room, fans in the bedrooms; some of the cabinets in the wardrobe and bathroom had seen better days but this depends on the apartment - the bathrooms in my friend's apartment looked new; Woolworths supermarket and a broad selection of restaurants/bars within 5-minute walking distance (which meant my morning cappuccino and I were not long apart) and Pacific Fair Shopping Centre is probably a 20 minute walk if you want a big dose of retail therapy. Having the restaurants so close meant we didn't have to get back into the car after a day out to go to dinner which, to me, is a huge plus. The apartment comes equipped with the usual 2 sachets of dishwashing and dishwasher powder, a little tub of laundry detergent and coffee/tea/sugar. You will need to buy or bring everything else such as shampoo, conditioner etc. You are given 2 tiny bars of soap in each bathroom and although a little petty, I think for what you pay a night, they could spring for a box of tissues for the bathrooms. Staff are friendly and helpful; the kids loved the pool for a dip before dinner, Floors are secure at night as they can only be accessed by guests with keys until the desk opens at 8.30am. WiFi is pretty hopeless. The apartments are only a 20-30 minute drive from all the various Worlds and have underground parking. For those with smaller children, there is a huge park just across the road with equipment and other fun stuff. I would gladly recommend the Talisman to anyone visiting the Gold Coast.

I got a great deal about 10 days before travel, as i had a last minute change of plans. The location is amazing, and the views out of the lounge area are amazing. Great balcony.

It's just across the road from the patrolled beach You can be in the sea in 90 seconds from the apartments front door. I can't rave about the location enough. 3-4 minutes to broadbeach restaurants and 5 minutes walk to woolworths, 10-15 walk to the casino.

I was lucky enough to get a high floor. The furniture in bedrooms is dated, but the beds were comfortable, bathrooms and kitchen fairly modern.

Bear in mind; Not all apartments are air conditioned; all decorated differently, so you might have pot luck on the day. Air conditioned in my case meant a single wall unit in the lounge, which was adequate for the entire apartment if the ceiling fans in the bedrooms were running.

In my rate, Internet (wireless) and parking were included.

Internet: Slow. Heavily filtered. Only worked in very specific locations in the apartment.

Parking: great underground parking.

All in all, a few minor changes and this place would be 5/5 - update some of the tired furniture and 80s bedspreads, and fix the internet!

Room Tip: High floors, and ask about air con...

I just booked the penthouse at Talisman on Thursday. They contacted me immediately to confirm the booking and offer the options of the bedding. Although it was a small thing, it shows the care for customers. I used to choose 5* hotels and apartments but I have to call them to confirm the booking and etc. This is the first time! Very Surprise. I believe it will be a great start.

As they say in real estate, location is the most important thing. And the location of the Talisman apartments is the best in Broadbeach, possibly the whole Gold Coast.

This is our third stay at Talisman Apartments and we loved it yet again. (Previously we stayed in Apartment 42 about 5 years ago. This was an awesome apartment that had been fully renovated. It had the North West view.)

This 7 night holiday we had Apartment 49 on Level 16 which had a north east view. If comparing the north east view and the north west view, in my opinion the north east view is the better. EVERY room has an AMAZING view of the ocean. Plus you get a view of the coastline from Coolangatta up to Surfers.

That said, if you like to see all the sparkley lights of the skyscrapers at night, the North West view is better. And with the North West view you still get the amazing beach view from the lounge room.

It is just that you get a more private, beach view from the main bedroom with the North East view whereas the view from the main bedroom in the North West view is looking out to the buildings of the Gold Coast.

Apartment 49 had modern furniture (eg leather lounges) and had a very new kitchen. The rest of the unit was mostly refurbished though not as new as the kitchen. Sleep quality was exceptional with the constant hum of the ocean to soothe you to sleep. Beds were comfy though a little small for our liking (we are used to king size). They even have blackout curtains (hooray) which our previous units didn't have.

The beach across the road is patrolled and perfect for swimming. The sand is so white and fine, and the ocean so clean. The constant sea breeze meant you never felt too hot on the beach or in the apartment. We never had to use the air conditioning despite it being 34 degrees outside and we only needed the fans above the beds one night.

A tip .. If you want a good coffee, go to Crema Espresso in the Main Street of Broadbeach. If you like sushi, the sushi rolls near Woolworths were very nice.

Another tip .. Bring some of your own soap for the shower as the soap they provide probably won't last you a week if you are a family.

We thoroughly enjoyed this unit and would HIGHLY recommend it!

Room Tip: Units with north east view have the best views if you want beach views from every room.

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday at Talisman apartments, Broadbeach on the Gold Coast. I had originally booked room 11 on level 3 which was the only unit available on the southeast corner when I booked. On arrival we were delighted to be told by the lovely Carolyn that we were in room 35 on level 11, (again on the S/E corner) which was available as its renovations had just been finished. We've been here before and favour the S/E corner.

This apartment is brilliant, everything is new - both bathrooms, kitchen, floor etc. see photos.
The main bedroom has an ensuite and A/C, and A/C in the living area as well.
It has a well appointed kitchen with oven, cooktop and dishwasher (all Miele).
The whole unit is spacious with amazing views of the ocean, the southern Gold Coast and the hinterland.
This place ticks all the boxes - 2 min walk to the beach, 5 min walk to the shops inc grocery store etc. You can park your car under the building and not drive it for the whole holiday if you wish.
It has a nice pool and heated spa and a full size tennis court as well.

As with all the older apartment blocks on the Gold Coast, be sure to ask for a renovated unit.
All in all, the perfect place for a relaxing holiday.
Thanks to Carolyn, Wayne and co for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: We like the rooms on the southeast corner. There are 3 rooms to a floor so all the southeast rooms a...
