Paradise Centre is a Mantra property, located right in the heart of Surfers Paradise. Like all of the Mantra properties, it is well appointed, modern, and this particular property is great for children. However, if there was to be any criticism of Paradise Centre, all the direct beach facing apartments are privately owned. So whilst there are ocean view apartments, the aspects face north/South, not face east. However, the proximity to the beach, and all the retail around the immediate vicinity is second to none.

In comparison, if you were specifically looking at that area, and in particular a Mantra property, I feel that Circle on Cavill has better ocean views - even though they are actually set further back. The difference in suitability for kids, is that Circle on Cavill is geared more for teenagers, as it has a games room, private threatre, three different pools (two outdoor, one indoor). Whereas Paradise is geared more for younger children, with two kids pools and 'play area' - which I'd imagine isn't a necessity for teenagers.

So if the rates are similar, perhaps Circle on Cavill may also be worth considering. Depending on budget, there are numerous wonderful apartment properties at the Gold Coast, especially in Broadbeach.

Yes, you are within walking distance of couple of supermarkets.

Yes, you are one block from the former Courtyard by Marriott (it's technically back to back on the same block), which is now the Hotel Grand Chancellor.

June and July are our winter months. Expect min 10 to max 21C.

Paradise Centre is very well located . It sits above a shopping centre and is in the heart of everything. There are two towers. We had a week here some years ago as we found a great deal. If the price was right, I would go again however I suspect that the property would need a renovation by now if they haven't already done so. Our room overlooked the mall from 7 th floor and it was a bit noisy though we still enjoyed our stay.

Not difficult. The bus stop, I believe is the main one in SP (at Appel Park on Ferny Avenue/GC Highway - next to Vibe Hotel). You can catch TX2 to Movieworld.

For transport information, the best website is: http://jp.translink.com.au/ Make sure to insert in the street address of your hotel (rather than your hotel's name) into the 'Start' section. It'll give you information on which bus to catch, where from, what time the bus comes, the cost, etc.
