Accommodation in Gold Coast - advice please

Hi there

My husband and I are looking to go to the Gold Coast with another couple on Boxing Day and stay for approximately 7 nights. Our key requirement is for a great pool that we can relax and read books beside, and somewhere that's close to good restaurants.

We've been to the Gold Coast several times and really liked Broadbeach as a location as it's close to the mall, Jupiters etc. We stayed in a high rise hotel last time and didn't enjoy that so much - felt really disconnected from the world/pool. Other stays have been at Turtle Beach and the Swell. We liked both locations but would like to try something different. Any suggestions gratefully considered!

Thanks very much

Hi ShellNZ09

You have posted in the Brisbane forum - would suggest you put your post in the Gold Coast forum.

Jupiters is often recommended for its pool scene.

Sheraton Mirage is gorgeous and in some rooms the pool is "swim-up". 10 minutes in the opposite direction from the Coolangatta airport is Pepper's at Salt, Kingscliff which has an absolutely amazing pool, and many rooms have their own plunge pools too.
