Golden Riviera Beach Resort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 2, 2014

I have been coming from the UK since 2005 to stay at Golden Riviera, usually in February or March. I love returning to the familiar surroundings, the beach, local shops, bus services and of course seeing many friends. Lovely helpful management. Don't know if I can face Economy air flight again but it could be worth it to stay at this resort!

We are so pleased that you can endure the long flight in Economy in order to stay at our beautiful resort.
What a reward for you to return to a place that you love to visit, where you can walk to the nearby cafes & shops, stroll along the beach, swim in the ocean or the pool, relax in the beautiful gardens or visit any of the local area.

Why not spoil yourself and stay in one of our absolute beachfront apartments where you can sit on the balcony, watch the sun rise, enjoy the surf, see families swimming, and in the evening enjoy the sunset.

As always we look forward to making your stay a pleasant one.

We have stayed at this property eight times and have booked stay number nine,we held a family re-union here in 2009 and can not speak highly enough of the Golden Riviera.We have always been impressed with the management (several changes) and quality of service , friendly staff and overall value for money. we are soon returning for our logest stay yet, four weeks and that will not be enough.The location is excellent and everythingis virtually at your doorstep. Whether you are a family, couple or group of friends this place would take some beating,I could go on and on but i believe i have made my point, do yourself a favour and stay here.

Room Tip: No rocket science here, just discuss the layout of the property with the staff when you book and cho...

We definitely have an amazing location with access to the beach - all you have to do is walk through the gate and you are on the beach- and two minutes walk to the local village and all it has to offer.
We all strive to ensure that all our guests(whether return guests or new guests) have an enjoyable experience and wonderful holiday at our resort, whether you stay for four nights or four weeks or longer, you are always welcome.

Stayed at Golden Riviera for a week in December and have already booked to go back this Christmas. Friendly, helpful management made us feel welcome and went out of their way to help. Late evening arrival wasn't a problem, they gave us some great sightseeing tips and also helped with tour and rental car bookings.

No roads to cross (rare anywhere in the world, let alone on the Gold Coast) to the beatuiful, quiet, patrolled beach; huge heated pool with nicely landscaped gardens; free electric BBQs; gym & sauna; quiet, safe and secure.

Large 2 bedroom apartment was spotlessly clean, modern and well appointed: air conditioned, 2 balconies, 2 modern bathrooms, good kitchen, nicely furnished, huge TV with cable. Even had a 6 seat dining table.

The surf club next door does affordable, good quality meals and has a great bar and balcony overlooking the beach.

Meals at the nearby Tugun tavern are also good value for money.

Supermarket, takeaway pizza shop, fish & chip shop, bakery, fruit shop and pharmacy are 2 minutes' walk.

Rental car, buses to Surfers Paradise/Coolangatta/Gold Coast airport are also within walking distance.

We can't wait to go back!

We stayed here for seven nights great location close to Restaurants, Tavern which had cheap meals, back to the unit it was a two bed two bathroom it had everything that you could want even had aTV in master bedroom which was very handy. Lovely large pool and spa and BBQ area there was nothing that we couldn't fault. Management were very helpful as when we arrived we were booked into a one bed unit and as i can't do steps they very kindly put us into a two bed unit at no extra cost

Room Tip: rooms closer to the back of the complex or beach side would be better as there is some road noise in...

The "Golden Riviera Resort" offers the vacationer a mostly quiet, relaxed atmosphere in a meticulously maintained complex. Sitting next to various shops, restaurants, and a beautifully maintained waterfront and promenade, this facility caters to all ages. The pool and its environs offer BBQ sites and picnic areas for the family. Management are helpful, amenable and pleasant to deal with. I would recommend this location to all my friends and relatives.

Fantastic view of the entire coastline from Unit 73. Great 2 bedroom unit with all necessities. Large pool in communal area with spa. Very quiet except for the roar of the surf. Walk out you front door straight onto the beach. Safe swim area with lifesavers on the beach. Staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay here's again.
