“Loved it”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

The location was perfect for us as it was right on the beachfront with amazing views. The rooms were clean and really nice and the managers were friendly and helpful. We have stayed in a few places on the Gold Coast but this was the best by a long way, we will definitely be returning! My children loved the pool.

Just spent five nights at these fantastic apartments, the location is the best, right on the beach. The views are magnificent. The room we had was modern and clean and the service from Judy & Chris was great.

Second time round and the experience is still top notch! Best views, great proximity to Cavill Avenue, excellent for families. In my opinion, probably the ONE place to stay on the Gold Coast Australia. I will be back!

This is the second time in Australia and the first time in Gold Coast. Although there was no room service, these hotel units were quite big - about a size of a condo! It is also a Absolute Beachfont apartment. Judy and Chris were really helpful. (We were the ones that stayed at Unit 23, Level 9 which were one of the three that had a bathtub, Jun 2013)

It is Amazing!

Room Tip: All rooms are great, but some are better. If you were going in a family, choose a room that has a ba...

This was the third visit with family to this secret gem. Right on the beach, no road to cross, the best view you can get and always in the sun. Right in the heart of Surfers with a great "low rise" feel. Hard to fault.

This is our fifth visit to Surfers Paradise but our first staying at One The Esplanade with our family. We wish we had of found this place earlier.
The views are amazing ( I think we stayed on level 10)
The management are superb ( Judy and Chris are always and I mean always friendly and helpful)
The location is perfect ( everything is within walking distance and Gold Coast hwy is easily accessible when you want to head off to the Theme Parks)
All of these fantastic reviews cannot be wrong.
We cannot wait to go back.
Regards John and Vanessa L

Our first time stay at One The Esplanade. Little wonder this is rated at #1. The service from Judy and Chris was superb. The rooms were excellent, spacious enough for our family of five and lovely and clean. We loved the absolute beachfront access, markets, shopping and restaurants. We can't wait to come again :-)

Room Tip: All rooms have a wonderful view of the beach and coast. We enjoyed a room on the beach side of the...
