Us 3 Stayed in Unit 22 on Level 2. Just magnifisent .Really enjoyed our stay there for 10 Days with the Kids. They meet other Kids at the Pool everyday & we saw the Whales every Day. Late in the afternoon you could see the sun on their Tales as they came up. We found it really handy being down that end of the GC for once. Its still not far to the Theme Parks etc if you have a Car. Lovely View. Really friendly Lady Manager. Very Helpful. Lots to do at Tweed Heads etc. Handy to the Airport. You only heard the Planes really if you were at the Pool. Didn't worry us at all. Will Def. Go Back.

Beautiful position right on tugun beach on the gold coast. On arrival the property looks great. Pool, spa, bbq and common areas are clean, well layed out and nice. I opened the door to the apartment and the first thing I saw was the view - beautiful, and you certainly can't beat the sound of the ocean. I then looked at the apartment. It looked like an explosion of furniture from the op shop with a few modern, but dusty lamps. There was a cigarette butt on the verandah, stains on the verandah table, toothpaste on the bathroom tiles and what looked like black dog hair on the bathroom floor (I'm blonde). I did a bit of cleaning. The ensuite bathroom is old and tired. There is nowhere to hang handtowels or floor towels. A hook behind the door wouldn't hurt. The step into the shower is dangerous and if they can't afford to replace the toilet roll holder or do a few repairs? The bed is so hard that my back would ache. I slept on the lounge some nights - not acceptable. I was going to pull out the sofa bed but it was so dusty under there. I know that each apartment probably has a different owner. But I would hope that I was just unlucky and that other apartments in the complex are better furnished and maintained. You can take pot luck or be specific about what you want when you book.

We have just completed our eighth holiday at San Simeon over the last twenty years, It has been our preferred destination because of its beachfront position with view of Pacific Ocean in all its moods and access for uninterrupted beach walk to Currumbin to the north and Coolangatta to the South, While the rest of the coast has been over commercialized , this strip has retained the quieter pace and tranquillity you seek on a holiday with easy access to the various worlds in the north and the glitzy attractions in Surfers Paradise. The local car hire firms offer great deals without all the hidden overheads of larger chains. The Tugun shopping strip provides all your needs but if you want access to larger shopping centre , Elanora Pines is only 10 minutes away. San Simeon provides facilities for all age groups and if you decide to avoid a car , there is a bus stop outside that operate at regular intervals to take you south or north.

Room Tip: Rooms that face directly east have less noise and best view of sunrise and whale watching as well as quieter

Ordered a room with air conditioning, not a problem. But on arrival did not have , kitchen had dirty floor. Paid extra for supposedly superior room , was a waste of time. Unit was tired in need of an update. The managers are not full time at establishment and they have 2 different people taking reservations but they obviously do not talk to one another as was told they would leave notes which did not happen. Would not ever stay at this place again. When arriving there is no onsite parking to get keys. Room only had a oil heater which was next to useless. They appear to only be interested in your money

Thankyou Ian - we most certainly remember you and recall our interesting conversations with you back in early June when you stayed. Unfortunately, we only have 3 apartments with airconditioning.. However, during your stay, our Manager had to visit your apartment for maintenance and found the heater on - working very effectively. On checkin, we did advise you that an apartment with air conditioning would be coming available in 2 days and offered to relocate you if you were not satisfied with the heater. We did not hear from you so assumed that all was well. It is also clear that neither of the front office staff members recall your request for airconditioning which - I can assure you, would have been acknowledged. The apartment in which you stayed is one of our most popular apartments and has indeed been upgraded. It is disappointing that we did not meet your expectations. Perhaps, on meeting you, a softer approach towards office staff might have been more appropriate.
Thankyou for taking the time to review us here. San Simeon Team

Apartment lacks basics like blankets in both rooms for a winter stay. Only one useless little heater. The place was cold. Also threatened with a $69 cleaning charge if rubbish not taken out and a 9.30 check out time

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. I was however unable to confirm your booking with us as you have not provided your full name. All units are provided with a double blanket and 2 single blankets and the units are checked prior to guests arrival. We have not had to replenish any blankets in any of our units and it seems very unusual there were no blankets in your unit. If this was the situation all you needed to do was contact us and we would have provided you with blankets and an additional heater if required.
