The resort is located directed on the beach, you need only walk 100m down to the surf. The resort pool and spa is great and well maintained. Our family of 4 (boys 9 & 6) had a great weekend here at the end of the school holidays and our car never left the secured parking area. Tugun patrolled beach and Currumbin patrolled beach are a small stroll down the waterline if you prefer to swim between the flags. Currumbin Creek (which is a little calmer and shallower for your kids) is a 10 min stroll along the beach, this was our favourite spot and we will return here again.
Eating out, Brian explained very well where we could eat with both surf clubs being within 5 mins walking, a street of restaurants back on the main road only 10 mins walking, plus we brought our own groceries for a BBQ at the complex. The views out to the ocean whilst cooking and eating on the deck were stunning on sunset. The BBQ is left extremely clean and the area has plenty of room for restless children to play. There is a swing and slippery dip in a small park right outside the complex, even my boys loved this! Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is literally around the corner and we had a lovely day wandering around looking at all the animals. We past a general store on the way home and treated ourselves to an ice cream.
The apartment (15) was really clean, well set out and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook small meals.
If I had to choose a negative and I am surprised no other review has mentioned it.....you must keep in mind you are right near the Gold Coast airport so the planes are noisy all day. In saying that though the only time I really noticed it was at 6am in the morning when we were woken everyday by the flurry of planes leaving. It meant we did not get a well earned sleep in any of the days we were there.
