“Tugun Delight!”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Wow!! The views are simply stunning! The Golden Riviera Beach Resort is a place to visit. In 2012 we stayed here with a large group of family & friends for a wedding. The service is professional but friendly. Our 2 bedroom waterfront apartment was fantastic. You open the door and look straight out to the ocean. The sound of the waves crashing on the beach just outside is awesome. It was plenty big enough, had everything we needed and was nice & clean!! Everything was modern & in good working order. The pool is a tropical delight and has bbq's for you to entertain by the pool. The location is perfect, so close to shops andrestaurants,& tugun surf lifesaving club which has fantastic meals. No road to cross to get to the beautiful endless beach and a park opposite for the children. All in all a great place to visit and create memories!!

Room Tip: Definitly choose waterfront - you won't regret it!!

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment that had a great ocean view and was super spacious. Location is key....a patrolled beach and a variety of excellent eateries close by. I stay here with my young family whenever we go to the Gold Coast. The heated pool is also a plus.

Thank you so much for you feedback. Golden Riviera really is that hidden gem and having the large heated pool is a great attraction for our guests.
We hope to see you again soon

We stayed for 3 nights. Beachfront units are the only way to go. I loved being so close to the surf beach. The noise of the surf was so loud at night (bliss!) The kitchen was large for a unit and well stocked. The appliances were quality, clean and worked well. My only complaint is that the carpet in the bedrooms was really old, dusty and badly in need of replacement - or tiling. But then again I am not a carpet person at all ;). If you have small children the ground floor units are best, they still have a fantastic view of the surf but have a small grassed area for them to run around. There are heaps of cafes, takeaways and resturants in a small walking distance. There is a great bakery, green grocer and supermarket just up the street. The pool in the complex was also great and even though it was peak season it wasn't crowded. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Room 21 or 20 if you have small children. They are ground floor units with beach views.

We stayed 2 nights last week. Fantastic place to stay. We had a beachfront unit on the top floor and it was extremely spacious, very clean and had everything we could possibly need. The pool is fantastic (heated so it takes the cold sting out of jumping in !) and the grounds are immaculate and very well presented. The managers are wonderful, so very friendly and happy to help with anything you need. The location is superb ! Lovely restaurants/cafes, grocery shop across the road, 20 min drive to Surfers, 10 mins to Coolangatta Restaurants etc. Can't fault the place and wish we could have stayed longer.

We have been staying here for years. Rooms are well well proportioned with great outlooks but would definitely go for beach front. Staff are very helpful and friendly. The grounds are immaculate and the pool just fantastic. It is very well positioned being close to parks, restaurants, theme parks, shops and clubs, currumbin sanctuary, surfers etc
Fantastic place.

I stayed here for 2 nights for a short break. I paid extra to obtain a beachfront unit with a sea view, and I was so pleased I did. The view was awesome of this beautiful quiet beach. I was delighted to see lots of whales from my balcony one morning. The unit is spacious, otherwise nothing special. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: pay up for beach front as the view is divine, this also faces away from the airport so would be quie...

We stayed here twice over 2 separate weeks last Christmas break. First stay was mid December to do the parks. Venue was easy to find, well located near local shops. Fish 'n chip shop was very good so too was the nearby supermarket. There is secure parking underneath the resort and the resort grounds were tropical, clean and well looked after. The pool was just lovely. The resort has its own gate onto the beach and it is 100m up to the Tugun SLSC and their patrolled area. The SLSC was lovely for dinner and/or lunch. Reasonable pricing, gorgeous outlook, lovely food with midweek specials.
Our first unit was the penthouse, which wasn't really a penthouse. Just a two storey unit above reception. We kept the northern windows closed from the lounge and main bedroom as it faced a car park and was literally a fishing rod distance to a public amenities block BUT the easterly view over the pool to the ocean was divine. The unit was clean and well appointed. 3 toilets, small cupboard laundry, dining etc. Ample for our stay.
We were not perturbed greatly by the aspect of the first unit, but on leaving queried about the cost of the beachfront units only to find they were the same price as the penthouse, so we were offered to view one which we did. We re-booked a week mid January and this time, we booked one right on the beach and the aspect was divine. Despite the fact, it rained all week, these units had no aircraft noise and were as well appointed as the 'penthouse', if not better. Our 3 teenagers still enjoyed surfing and fishing in the rain, playing in the pool in the rain, going to the gym and our boys particularly loved Subway on the corner of the street the resort was in. We liked the coffee shop a couple of doors up. Enjoy, it is a great resort, just be careful with room choices. It's not 5 star, but its a little golden gem.

Room Tip: Choose absolute beach front and not one on the northern end (as you will get some aircraft noise the...
