We had a wonderful 9 night stay in our apartment. The apartment had everything you could possibly need for a longer stay including washing machine, fully equipped kitchen and loads of TV channels including films. Although some of the furniture was basic, it was really clean and great value for money. The management team are fantastic - really friendly and... More

We just finished our week stay here over New Years and I would highly recommend this place as affordable accomodation. While it's not the flashiest place in town (basic decor) it certainly caters to all the amenities you could need. In particular we enjoyed having a kitchenette in our apartment so we had the option to eat in and save... More

We had a really bad experience with this place. We booked for 2 nights on a weekend through Wotif using our credit card. On the Friday at about 1pm, someone called Trevor, claiming to be from Costa d'Ora, rang me. He asked me to give my credit card number on the phone as he needed $200 as a deposit. He... More

We are sorry to hear that you felt you were dealt with unfairly. We tried to secure a deposit from you so that we could hold the booking. After three attempts to obtain a valid credit card number from you and you were unable to supply one, we were advised by Expedia (owned by Wotif) to cancel the booking. We... More

I booked the apartment few months back and a deposit of AUD$200 was taken from my account as a confirmation of my stay. I accepted the terms and continued with the plan of staying there. Once i reached there for my holiday, i paid the final balance of AUD$424 for the apartment cost of AUD$624. Then the manager was telling... More

Traveled to Surfers Paradise for a week and stayed at the Costa D'ora. Staff were amazing and welcoming from the first minute we checked in.
