One The Esplanade
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 August 2017

There is a reason that this resort is named One the Esplanade and that it is simply the one and only place to stay in Surfers Paradise. It is close to everything, incredible views, great facilities and spacious well decorated apartments. Even though we were there in May the pool was heated and lovely to swim in.Under cover parking on site is also included.
The management team were friendly and helpful. If you are going to Surfers Paradise make sure you check this out first before booking any other accommodation.
We look forward to heading back again next year.

Room Tip: I would suggest above 4th floor for better beach views, but other than that all rooms were similar.

One The Esplanade is an absolutely beautiful place to stay! Judy and Chris are very welcoming and have a wealth of knowledge about the area, they are happy to find things out for you and book tours and transfers. The room is beautiful and a lot bigger than I expected very comfortable and the view of the ocean and up towards Cavill ave is just to die for! Waking up to the stunning sunrise everyday is just such a blessing and falling asleep to the sound of the waves is bliss! Pool is heated and great to swim in. There is also direct access to the beach through the pool gate! It's a nice 5 min walk up to Cavill ave to shop for find some delicious food! Would definitely recommend this place to everyone!!!

My girlfriend and I recently stayed at One The Esplanade for a few nights. Judy and Chris were extremely helpful and accommodating to us after we had a terrible experience the night before. The apartment we had was spotless and the view was amazing, we were lucky enough to be there for some fireworks right outside our balcony.
There was a washing machine and drying in our apartment.
The beach is just out the back gate past the delightful pool and bbq area.
We would recommend staying here and will return again one day.

Room Tip: All rooms have a fabulous view

I have been to the Gold Coast 5 times and stayed at different locations. In terms of location and quality of apartment, this is 'The One''!

We booked a 2 bedroom apartment and was given the corner unit mid-floor. The view was awesome and the proximity to ground level means I get to hear the lapping of waves sloshing against the beach, it has a therapeutic effect for someone seeking solace from the city. The beach is right next to the One. Views are unblocked and paranomic. The apartment is clean and modern (like 55" curved screen tv with foxtel).

Hosts Judy and Chris were courteous and helpful during our stay. I will definitely choose the One again for my 6th trip to Gold Coast!
