Ideal for a bit of independence. Secure car parking underground. Quite a lot of stairs if you are on an upper level. All you should need. Washing machine, dryer etc. Very good security. Easy walking to a good hotel for a drink or a meal.

We went with my parents, they had a separate apartment which was very dated & tired compared to ours which was great, it had everything we needed new beds etc. The pool was great for the kids but way too cold for me, didn't feel heated? And the spa was also good but when the bubbles went on the smell...

Warm welcome on arrival. Was sent text message day before saying I could check in at 9am. Personally showed how to access secure carpark. Apartment clean and roomy. Great value for money. Very quiet considering it was fully booked. Will definitely book on my next trip to the Gold Coast.

Stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment. Had a nice big deck upstairs with a nice view. There was plenty of space in the apartment, it was tidy and clean. Be aware it is a self-contained apartment which means you don't get daily servicing (need to wash own towels and supply own toilet paper) which is a bit of a pain...

Stayed here for 2 nights with kids in a 2 bedroom apartment over the weekend. There was an error with Booking.com. We booked a spa room but was given a standard 2 bedroom. When we asked they said spa rooms were all booked and booking.com made the mistake not them and didn't offer to rectify it. This was a 4...

The apartment we got was huge, with an amazing view out to the spit. Check in after hours was easy and hassle free. The place is a little dated but it was clean and tidy. The couch if I could be a little picky was not the most comfortable and should be replaced sooner rather than latter. But most importantly...

Definitely a great hotel, free wifi, swimming pool/spa, great view and the list goes on. My family of 5 stayed there for 5 days after sharing 1 room in a previous hotel and our family all gave the thumbs up as the kids loved the pool, dad loves the barbecue and mum as always loves to rule the kitchen.
