Island Beach Resort
Ranked #1 of 2 Broadbeach B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

We stayed in a two bedroom unit and were pleasantly surprised with the setout and amenities offered by this resort. While the decor is slightly dated the rooms are tidy and offer some great features. Some of these were... Double level, four decks two facing north and two facing south, two bathrooms and full kitchen. Would recommend this unit for a small family looking for a quiet holiday close to all broadbeach has to offer.

We spent two weeks here in July. We had a two bedroom unit which was great, but there were only two spare blankets and we could have done with another in the main bedroom. There was no heater, and the evenings were quite cool. The queen size bed seemed very new (which was great) but it was very very hard. The apartment seemed dusty. The dishwasher rack was held together (loosely) with insulating tape, but we didn't use it anyway. The curtains in the living room had food stains on them. Te secure parking (a huge bonus) was good but it was really dark, perhaps a couple of lights had blown? The pools was great, nice and warm, and the spa was wonderful too. The staff are welcoming and very nice, the location can't be beaten (except for the traffic but you can work around that) and overall it was a comfortable stay.

The room has a reverse cycle air/con which also can be used as a heater each room in the 2 bedroom apartments has 2 extra blankets spare in the warddrobe.
Sometimes it helps if you ask if your not sure.

Great place to stay. Stayed in a one bedroom apartment. Very clean, comfy bed, shower is great and had two nice balconies. Pool is clean and heated. Staff are friendly and helpful. Resort is not brand new, but price matched as we got a great deal on Wotif. Great location, between the beach and shopping centre and great places to eat nearby.
Only one towel supplied each, which is not enough for a resort with a swimming pool, however, when requested we were quickly given another towel each. Amount of coffee and tea was a bit small, only four of each and you are charged for any extra, you are also charged for extra toilet paper. Internet is heavily advertised on their website, however it is very expensive to cennect to. But overall a great stay!

WOW! The reality is even better than the pictures. the perfection of this place starts at the footpath.. TRUE. There is even a full laundry in the unit with a dryer! The second bedroom upstairs is like a penthouse. Super service by the operator. I rate it as equal to the best i have experienced in Greece, UK, USA and New Zealand - and much cheaper.
