The beds are the worst, something you would get from a salvo store.
Dishwasher did not work, if you opened the door it nearly fell over was not even bolted in
You have to supply everything toilet paper, garbage bags etc
Cooking utensils cheap n nasty making it impossible to cook.
The stove was useless would not even heat up properly. Only one element actually worked, well sort of!

what a great place to stay, staff beyond helpful and friendly, the apartments well maintained and well provided for. The pool great as normal, gardens looking fine as normal. A pity the staff can't control the beach as well as that would make it a truly great holiday. But there is plenty to keep you occupied besides the beach.

We stayed from 8th October to 15th October. We had a wonderful time staying at Grande Florida. The kids loved the pool! Close to the beach, theme parks and shopping! Will definitely stay here again and recommend it to people.

The Grande Florida is a fantastic place to stay, this is our third time we have stayed there and have loved it each time. It is peaceful and very family friendly, the kids absolutely love it with the 2 pools and the games room, and also the quick walk to the beach. We are definately going back again. Love it!!!

This is the third time we have stayed at the Grande Florida resort.Each time we have stayed we have had a peaceful,pleasant and enjoyable holiday.It is reasonably central to anything you wish to do while staying on the Gold Coast.There is a wonderful place for breakfast on the beach that you can reach in about 3 minutes if you walk out the rear beach exit,and a supermarket that stays open till 10 pm most days just 5 minutes drive down the road towards Coolangatta to stock up at.The only negative about the whole experience was the Internet cafe needs a serious upgrading.Staff at the resort are second to none and value for money is unbeatable.I won't bother mentioning the two pools as everyone else already has,once you visit you will see why EVERYBODY mentions the two swimming pools.

Room Tip: Beach side rooms get first light.

We have stayed at this resort for the last 5 times we have been to the gold coast. Each time I stay I love it more. I have a family with three children and the girls love this place. you can walk out the back and swim in the surf or just stay around the two lagoon style pools. One is heated and one is cold. the people who run the place are so helpful and friendly. I had trouble with the washing machine and it was replaced with a brand new one in two days, in the meantime they gave me a key to another room to use that washing machine.
LOVE IT LOVE IT

The Grande Florida resort is amazing. With it's 2 amazing pools in which one is heated. We brought our family here (2 teenagers and a a7 year old) in 2010 and 2012. I would highly recommend Grande Florida to anyone. Reception staff were very helpful and always friendly and a pleasure to deal with.
It's only a walk across form the beach, everything is secured, such as parking and getting into the premises. It also has a games room and internet cafe, although not big, however still a lot of fun.
The theme parks are not too far away in which you can purchase passes with reception.
If your looking for a family get away, Grande Florida is the place to go.
Great value through qldgoldcoastholidays.com.au
