“Superb Accomodation”
Reviewed September 7, 2010

We travelled from Sydney with our 3 children to attend a family engagement party on the Gold Coast. We arrived travel weary, but quickly revived when we arrived at our sensational apartment. We only stayed for 3 nights but wish we'd been able to stay longer, this is simply the best, and best value accomodation we've stayed in anywhere.

Living like millionaires at a very reasonable price - would not consider staying anywhere else on the Gold Coast after this.

We stayed for one week in Oscars on Main. I asked reception when we arrived, if we could upgrade rooms if the room we were given wasn't to die for. He readily agreed, and then said "I think you'll find you won't be disappointed". That was the understatement of the year. When we opened the door to our room, we both gasped with delight. The room was divine - uninterrupted views to die for, out to the ocean; beautifully furnished, immaculate, light filled, spacious, and solid construction (which you'd want for a high rise, but also very quiet). The resort managers, Mary and Karl, were very attentive throughout our stay, and we look forward to returning asap.

Oscar On Main is our very favourite place to stay. The staff have always been friendly and helpful. Always with a smile and a welcome back.
The apartments are amazing. Sitting on the verandah, watching the ocean. Coming back inside to sit in total luxury or snuggling at night in their very comfortable beds are just some of the pleasures we experence when staying at Oscars.
The short stroll to fabulous shopping and restaurants are an added bonus. We like to think of Oscars as our "decadent home away from home". We love it.
The only thing we don't like about Oscars is handing the keys back

Our group visited here last year for the first time and it was unanimous to return again this year. There are lots of options to choose from on the Coast but Oscars was so good we all said "if it ain't broke, don't fix it!"....

I've also booked my family in for a trip here so clearly I love the place!

Let's be clear about Oscar's... it's not a full hotel with concierge, restaurants and a zillion people around (at least not when I was there in the winter months). Check-in was a single lady who gave me a key and a run-down on the location and then I was taking my bags up to what was really a very spacious, clean, modern, comfortable apartment on the 18th floor. The view of the beach and surrounding area was magnificent. The main room is a big open plan lounge/living with attached kitchen. No room service here: there is a fridge and cooking facilities and plenty of room for your groceries so I think for a family holiday you couldn't get much better than this. While I'm used to 4 or 5 star hotel experiences I have to say even without the bells and whistles, Oscar's was just a great place, quiet place to stay and felt 5 star without the service.

We just got back from a weeks staf at Oscars in a 2brm on the 14th floor. We booked based on online reviews and were very impressed. The room was very tastefully refurbished with amazing views. We even saw the whales passing by (thru binoculars) from the balcony. This apartment didn't have any windows, the balacony wraps around past both beds and main living which made it feel safer with younger children - no falling out of windows...
The staff were helpful in assiting us with enquiries and a couple of bookings. I had a Coles Online order delivered to the apartment which saved time wandering around an unfamiliar shopping centre. Would highly recommend the Southport Surf Club for breakfast on the water.
We will be back - a great relaxed family break!

After having booked accommodation in Jan 10 at Nobby's Beach to ensure we had the type of accommodation we needed with a younger child and a teenager we arrived to find the accommodation claimed they could no longer give us what we had booked and offerred a much lesser standard of accommodation. We frantically rang around mid holiday season to find Oscar's and they were prepared to help us even if we did not take their offer of rooms.
It was very quiet, extremely comfortable , full views of sea from every window, in door and out door pool, secure basement parking. Very safe building minutes walk to great food places. It should be rated 5 star just for the very helpful friendly and professional service.
Our children loved the place. Only if you have very young children there are no screens on windows so very young children unsupervised might fall from the windows.
