Positive Reviews

Great, beachfront location.

The location of this accommodation is the top selling point for many travellers. Guests have amazing and uninterrupted waterfront views they can take in from private balconies, along with enjoying easy access to the beach.

Staff are very helpful.

Everyone working at this accommodation is super helpful and friendly, according to reviews. They always have a lot of local information on hand, along with tips on how to enjoy stays in Surfers Paradise.

Good facilities are found throughout the complex.

Private units at this complex are spacious and well equipped with comfortable furnishings. The rest of the property has a great, family friendly environment along with popular amenities including a heated pool and barbecue area.

Negative Reviews

Units aren't always as advertised.

Online postings about this accommodation describe the units as recently refurbished with photos to match. However, not all the rooms live up to these advertisements. Some of the private units are fairly rundown and have issues with dust build up, so guests should be aware of which kind of room they will receive before booking.

Many people have issues with the parking.

The underground parking offered at this accommodation won't suit vehicles of all styles. Even if guests can manoeuvre down into the garage, spots are very limited and finding public spaces nearby as an alternative can be equally difficult.

Air conditioners often don't work.

Getting the air conditioning to work properly in units presents a host of problems. Because these appliances seldom work, guests will often have to deal with warm and stuffy conditions.
