Hi everyone - quietly doing my head in trying to decide which accommodation option to go with for our visit to Broadbeach mid December - never been to Gold Coast before. We are a family with 3 teenagers and 1 five year old. Have spent hours looking at all options for 3 bed apartment but struggling to decide. Want to be close enough to walk to beach, shops, restaurants. Apartment to have nice ocean view, aircon and good resort facilities.
Options available at Carmel by the Sea, Ultra, Waves, Aria, Meriton and Mantra Sierra. Peppers/Oracle a little on the price side. Carmel looks nice, no buildings in front of it but doesn't have air con in the bedrooms and concerned that it could be hot. Ultra seems nice but have seen comments about uncomfortable pool loungers and wind noise through building. Pool seems bit small if lots of people there?? (anyone know whether sky houses at Ultra better than 3 bed apartments there?). Seems that noise could be issue at Waves and Aria, esp over weekends with night club etc?? Highway noise possible factor at Meriton and Mantra?? Verve and Air fully booked.
Would so appreciate your views on my options and if I am missing anything?? Thanks
