Spindrift On The Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 11, 2013

My hubby & I & our 2 kids loved our stay at Spindrift! The pool & spa were a beautiful temperature. We didn't have an oceanview room but there was a beautiful oceanview from our balcony. The apartments are a great size even with an ensuite & with everything you need. We loved the quiet location but it was only a 30-40 minute drive to the theme parks in traffic.
For the price we paid we were very pleased with the absolute beachfront & the quality of accomodation. The extra touch of having kids beach toys available for free use & the library was great! We will definitely be back & would recommend it to everyone!!

Perfectly located right on the beach and with the surf club flags almost out the front, a family holiday doesn't get much better. The pool and spa are heated well and the BBQ area is well maintained. The on site managers fix any issues that arise during the stay and are helpful and friendly. Other guests when we've stayed have been friendly and have helped make our holiday even more enjoyable.

Rooms are well furnished, fresh linen supplied weekly. Secure building with secure underground parking (security levels have improved since our stay in 2012 - great improvement)

This was our second stay at Spindrift and we've stayed for between 10-14 days each time. My daughter asked if we could stay there forever. Already planning to return again next year.

Room Tip: Think all rooms in this building would be great, views become slightly more expansive as you move hi...

Our first visit to the Gold Coast, in fact Australia and the accomodation was great!

car parking space in the secure car park and an access fob for easy access/entry.

Staff were very polite and helpful.

We had a Garden apartment but it rapped around the side so you a got a great seaview as well. We saw Whales migrating south and playing in the sea on two occasions which pleased us all.

Pool opens at 7 and i had two very excited kids waking me up at 06.30 as they went in it everyday.
If i had to complain, my only gripe would be that i would have liked the rooms serviced and had at least more than two toilet rolls!

Great place, Location and would certainly go back.

Great place to have a holiday with the extended family right on the beach. Mornings on the beach watching the sunrise and making sandcastles. We enjoyed the great pool and spa and immaculately clean BBQ. Thanks for a fantastic holiday.

We stayed 5 nights in a Beachside unit on the second floor.The place was pretty clean bar the TV furniture which was dusty.Not sure if these units are individually owned as the furniture was showing lots of signs of wear and tear. The laminate on the side of the coffee table was loose and stuck back with sticky tape. The rusty DVD player was inoperable and not connected to the TV. I reported this as well as 2 blown lights but only one globe was replaced and no feed back re the DVD.The bed mattress was thin and quite hard and probably past its used by date.The windows and the door latch need some attention due to corrosion and looseness.One needs to lock the internal screen door as the main glass door lock is loose and may not offer any security.Management do offer a warning in their guest manual.
On the positive side the price was excellent, the location is relatively quiet and the place is on the beachfront.They offer good secure undercover parking and free Wifi with various degrees of performance.My overall opinion is this place is excellent value for the budget conscious family.

Room Tip: Request a floor higher up for better views and less noise.Neighbourhood dog occasionally barks at ni...

Back again at Spindrift. We come here 3 or 4 times a year we love it so much. Not only is the accommodation lovely but the pool and spa are usable all the year round and maintained immaculately.
Going to sleep lulled by the sound of the surf is one of nature's joys.
Darren and the family work very hard to keep the facilities so clean and lovely and really care. The personal touch and always being made to feel welcome is really appreciated.
