A great place to stay, but fixtures and fittings are getting a bit worn and weary. 1/2 mile to nearest shops.

The family comes here for a holiday once every few years. The rooms have had an upgrade since we were here last. The furniture is nice, the rooms are spacious with great seaside views. The staff really care for us and we'll be back again in the future.

Location great! Stayed in 601 and the room smelt like off yogurt especially the curtains. Had to open up doors and was quite loud due to this. Bed kept collapsing as well. Had to rebuild it our selves. very cheap designs, and the beams were thin and were held by plastic pieces that had to be fixed several times. Location was very good though. U also need to pay to use the pool table equipment and the table tennis stuff.

Perfect on the beach getaway. Fully furnished apartments, quiet,clean and comfortable. Views North to Gold Coast beaches and Coolangatta to the South. Leslie was a most helpful and friendly on site manager.

Great views, being right next to the beach. Close to the airport and reasonably priced. Bathroom had been recently renovated, but ensuite and kitchen quite dated and tired.

Absolutely breathtaking, you get views of the ocean from the front balcony and the hill's to the west from the back balcony. Rooms are clean, comfortable and modern. Airport right across the road so great for plane spotting.

The view from our apartment was the most amazing view, straight direct to the ocean it was like having our own private beach!! No roads or other apartments in the way! The room was clean and had a lovely kitchen and cute little furnishings. Loved the spa bath in our bathroom. Would definitely come back.
