Was here for a 4-day weekend. Resort has a very relaxed beachy vibe. We had a spacious 1 bedroom apartment - rooms have ceiling fans and air-con. Bed was comfy, kitchen handy and tidy, bathroom was also spacious. Cute little balcony for relaxing mornings and drying towels and swimmers! Short, easy walking distance to the beach, shops and central food/night life district of Broadbeach. Will definitely stay here again. So nice! Oh, and the spa is very nice on overcast or rainy days where you don't want to jump into the ocean.

Situated in quite street behind a walled garden setting. Very friendly management and staff.
Great location. Short walk to the beach, restaurants and Pacific Fair is only a 10 min walk.
The room was very clean, well appointed with ceiling fans, air conditioning and a compact kitchen. Loved the balcony view over the Pool and gardens. Lovely pool setting, with shaded areas perfect for relaxing. Excellent BBQ area with outdoor shower. Secure underground parking. Overall a delightful, well maintained 3 level property offering great value. Looking forward to staying next year.

We booked here as it was central to Big Shopping Plaza, Jupiters Casino, Beach, Dining areas. Only a 5 minute walk to every thing we needed for our short stay. The unit was dated but very clean, had air cond. TV, kitchenette, comfy bed and quiet street and covered parking. Would stay here again than a big high rise apartment.

I stayed here for a long weekend convention at the nearby Convention Centre (Sept 2015). This was an excellent location as it was approximately 600m from my destination. The local city centre was also approximately 600m away, which provided cafes, supermarkets, restaurants, nightlife, and was far enough away to be quiet. It was an affordable location, and pleasant stay.

The place was average, good location.
The "free" wi-if was useless, could download emails but couldn't open any.
The secured car park was handy.
Pool & hot spa were good & clean.
No fly wire screens on any windows or doors to balcony. Couldn't get any fresh air in the coolness of the evening, had to rely on overhead fans & a/c which at time was too cold.
