“Fantasic for families.”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Very friendly staff, large rooms. Quiet location and right next to patrolled beach, bus to surfers outside and an express bus to theme parks goes past each morning too.
Only a short walk to Pacific Fair Shopping Centre. Been staying here for a few days every year for about 8years and love it. This is not a Hotel so you have to clean up after yourself but brilliant value.

Room Tip: The rooms are all the same size but owned by different people as investments so can be furnished dif...

Perfectly situated at very quiet end of Mermaid Beach. very clean and spacious apartment--we stayed in apartment 11. Full kitchen with everything you could possibly need. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, washer and dryer. A balcony off lounge and both bedrooms. Lovely pool and garden area. Undercover parking--very secure. Highly recommended

The location of Montana Palms could not be any better in this busy stretch of coast. On a quiet side street off the main drag and only a quick walk to an awesome beach with surf club protection. Coffee and breakfast at the cafe on the corner and the Mermaid Beach Surf Club for drinks, snacks, free wi-fi and views. Under a kilometre walk to Pacific Fair (Coles supermarket and other useful stores) or a quick drive. Energetic types can join the activity on Hedges with cycling, walking and running happening from very early.

The apartments are a good size. We had four people (adult sized) and the beds were super comfortable and the bathrooms roomy. The doors/windows created a cross breeze for coolness. Outside decks are great for their purpose. The pool is lovely and clean.

NB:
-$5 air conditioning charge. Staying at other places we realise how wasteful some people can be with the air conditioning. If you are paying extra for it, then perhaps people will use it more wisely. Be prepared to pay if you want it. The accommodation price is reasonable so adding $5 for a/c is a good optional extra.
-Wifi cost. Good to do without but if you can't it is a quick walk to the surf club which is welcoming and has free and quick wifi. Better to check your mail (and how cold the weather is in New Zealand), once a day and then enjoy the healthy outdoor lifestyle for the rest of your time.

We recommend this accommodation to others and would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: We had Room 11. Exceptional beds!

When we got to the apartment and went to get the remote control for the air conditioners it was not in the bracket near the door. Instead we were greeted by a sign on the air conditioners which said there is a charge of $5 per night for air conditioning. Rip off. Also fans in bedrooms were not working and when I pointed this out on Sunday I was told it would be fixed Monday. Wrong, Wednesday came and still not fixed and as I was leaving next day I thought, what's the point. Service was second rate, you'd think by their attitude they were doing us a favour. Would I stay there again? Never!!!!!!!

Stayed here for 2 nights during the Blues on Broadbeach weekend, May 2013. Wanted to be walking distance to Broadbeach, which Montana Plams is, so that was a plus. On arrival, the manager upgraded me to a nicer room with better views. Also received a reduced rate for booking direct, not through a website. Unit had 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a good size open plan living/dining area. Small balcony with partial ocean views. It's not on the Gold Coast Highway, so no issues with road noise. Cleanliness was good. In all, a great place with friendly management. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Stayed in room 16, on the top floor. It was very nice. Be aware that there are no lifts to the top f...

We stayed at Montana Palms for four nights and had a fantastic time. Our hosts Julie and Ron were so very friendly and couldn't do enough to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as they possibly could. The unit was excellent - everything we needed to feel at home - and the garden setting is absolutely beautiful. Location is perfect - close enough to where it's all happening, but far enough away for peace and tranquility. We'll be back for sure!
