One The Esplanade
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 March 2012

We stayed at the One on the Esplanade for 3 nights, we had a deluxe 2 bedroom apartment, it was so modern and comfortable. The veiws from our apartment were terrific from the bedroom we could see to Coolangatta and from the living rooms we could see right up to the spit. The unit was very quiet and being right on the beach was wonderful no roads to cross. There is so much to do as there is always something happening on the esplanade we were able to watch the fireworks from our balcony, movies on the beach and enjoy Surfers Paradise shops and cafes. Judy and Chris could not do enough for us, they made us feel really welcomed. We will definetly stay hee again.

Room Tip: The best rooms in my opinion are the ones on the beach front, fantastic views from all the rooms.

The One is certainly just that....The One!!!

Chris & Judy (The Ones' Managers) are the warmest , friendliest managers of anywhere we've stayed on the Gold Coast (in fact, anywhere in the world!) They have great local knowledge, up for a chat & are a credit to the complex.

We were holidaying with another family and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay!
After initially staying out of the "main strip" we decided to move and spend the last week of our holiday closer to the action! The One was perfect! Right on the southern end of The Esplanade in Surfers.

We stayed in room 39b (our friends were in 38) which was a 2 bed, 2 bathroom apartment on the 14th floor. The views were 2nd to none, a perfect vantage point to watch The Esplanade, the beach and the surrounding area's coastline!

Both bedrooms had amazing views (the main bedroom had a great nightime view of the city) and even a gorgeous view from the loo! We had comfy leather lounges, a lcd flat screen WITH full Foxtel (not just a few channels already programmed in to the tele) great for kids and sports nuts alike (hubby loved SkyRacing!)
The kitchen had all the mod cons, the fridge with ice maker & water dispenser was very handy to top up the cocktails and make the kids drink more water! Everything was there that we needed! The laundry facilities were also great (located in the main bathroom)

Sitting out on our balcony at any time of the day or night, we could hear hardly any car or people noise, just the roar of the ocean. Its a VERY deceptively quiet spot. Great views of early morning surfers and a great night time view of the Q1 (down the street)

BBQ area and pool were gorgeous with a private gate leading straight on to the beach (complete with outdoor shower upon return) Very very secure premises which was great. Even provided us with luggage trolley to take all our bags up the elevators to our room. Everything has been thought of at The One.
Beds were really comfy, shower pressure and height were great (for us tall people). Lounges comfy, tv reception perfect, beautifully clean, great wifi reception (user pays system unless you have 3G)

I think I could probably go on and on, but we are fussy travelers and we were NOT disappointed. Will definitely return and will be highly recommending The One to all family and friends for their GC accom!

Thanks Chris & Judy! :-)

One the Esplanade is the only place to stay in Surfers Paradise. It's close enough to Cavill Ave (400M) that you don't miss any of the action but far enough away that you can enjoy a peaceful night's sleep or glass of wine on the balcony. We have stayed at several hotels around Cavill ave and the noise of constant construction works and nightclubs can be very distracting. With private access to the beach and an outdoor shower, you only have to walk 50m to get back to your room. If the beach is too windy, the sheltered pool is a perfect alternative, yet you still have the beach view! Speaking of view there is no better view than the view from the balcony. Completely uninterrupted by other buildings. The building is a fantastic reflection of the lovely managers Chris & Judy, they were extremely accomodating and went out of their way to make our after hours arrival as easy as possible! Will be the only place I stay when visiting the Gold Coast

One the Esplanade is a luxury. I regard it as a treat. Located on the beach, it fulfills everything you are after! The rooms are great; people friendly and helfpul; there is a well maintained pool and garden area at your fingertips; and I haven't even mentioned a ocean at your doorstep. It is a unique location and holiday destination.

My brother,mother and I had a wonderful stay at One The Esplanade. The apartment we stayed in, apartment #22, was well equipped and had an incredible view of the beach and the esplanade. However, the most commendable thing of our stay was the front desk. Chris and Judy were spectacular. They helped us cancel a booking and even rang the cab company when i left my phone in a taxi! Best bang for your buck in all of Surfer's Paradise. Highly recommended. -Armand
