Best Pool

I am travelling to the gold coast, Broadbeach, this November. My husband will be at a conference and I would like to laze in the sun at a nice pool. Which hotel has a good pool, with lots of sun, and sunbeds? So many hotel pools are now placed in the shade or you have to fight for a bed beside the pool in the sun?

Thanks, I would appreciate any info,

Linda

I just finished my stay at Meriton Broadbeach today!

They have a gorgeous outdoor pool that is ALWAYS in the sun, right next to a spa as well. In my entire stay there of 7 days, it never had a single person in it even though it has been nice and sunny. They also have an indoor heated pool with a spa alongside it as well.

There is a well sized "garden" area with deck chairs as well, as does the pool. I'd highly recommend Meriton Broadbeach.

If you're going to book the Meriton Broadbeach, make sure to look at this thread before booking: tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g255337-i929-k4811… as it advises of a discount for stays up until the 30th November, but you have to book by the 18th September 2011.

Good luck with your planning and have a GREAT time on the Gold Coast! :)

Hi,

The only problem with the Meriton pool is that its small. When we stayed ( Jan) the pool was always crowded & you did have to fight for a deck chair. However; its a nice pool. The other mentioned by surfoz is the Sofitel its rather nice & in the sunshine.

I just booked the Meriton again for Jan & got a fab deal through the hotel -(not online) you need to ring them. I booked a few rooms due to business & I got a oceanfront one bedroom apartment for $110.00 which is excellent. I also booked a 3 bedroom & 2 two Beds & there were equally good value.
