Without a doubt it is the location of this property which is it's most valuable asset. While the rooms are not 5 star Hilton style, they are very comfortable and I would rate the rooms as 3.5 to 4 star. We have visited and stayed in several Gold Coast apartments over the years and One The Esplanade is now our...

This is a delightful place to have a holiday. The position is ideal, on the beach, close to restaurants and shops and views from the huge windows to die for. We had a two bedroom, beachfront apartment which was very clean and tidy and had everything we could need for a holiday. The only problem was we wanted to just...

Beautiful, well kept apartments in a central location. You are right on the beach and the floor to ceiling windows make for amazing views, even in the bedroom. This was a winner for me. We saw whales every day on our 4 day stay, so we were very lucky. Rooms are spacious and clean and well equiped. Includes washing machine...

We have stayed at One the Esplanade now for quite a few years. We stay in a 2 bedroom deluxe apartment on the beach side. The Managers Judy and Chris are exceptional hosts.

Recommended by a friend. Up in Gold Coast on business for 6 days and very happy we stayed here. Very spacious apartments. A bit dated but clean and functional. There are apartments that have been recently renovated which weren't available for our stay. Amazing north facing balconies with unbeatable view. Good location. Right on beach. Away from main Surfers strip...

Wow, what a location. Superb views and only a 2 minute walk to Cavill Avenue. Not to mention it being right on the beach. We stayed in apartment 14 on the 5th floor which was 2 bed and 2 bathrooms. The room amenities were excellent! Every thing you could need in a self catering apartment at a very reasonable cost....

Enjoyed 3 nights ....family of 2 adults and 2 teenage boys.....our apartment was one of the ones that hadnt been renovated, but was still adequate though small things needed attention or replacing. The building is in a great location close to Cavill Ave, right on the beach, yet doesn't suffer from too much road noise. The amenities are really well...

We have now stayed here 4 times and will always come back! The views are A1 and the pool area walking straight on to the beach is fantastic! Also the location is perfect for exploring the night markets or taking part in all that Surfer's has to offer. But the thing that sticks in our memories always is the way...
