Reviewed 16 January 2014

We stayed here 4 nights in December 2013. Got a 2 bedroom apartment wit an ocean view room. Our rates was very good, got a special 4 nts for the price of 3 through Ratestogo and ended up paying around $120/nt.

Overall comments:

Pros

Very roomy, clean, good size kitchen and lounge. Big wide Balcony overlooking the sea. This hotel in 2 streets from the main mall in surface paradise.

Cons:

Can not pick any major fault.

I would recommend this place as it is quite central with very reasonable price

Spent two weeks in December 2013 and paid 3650 dollars. The reception closes at 5:00 PM on weekdays and at 2:00 on Sundays. After that you are on your own and you can't check your apartment before you already moved in it.
The carpet was dirty and smelly. We did not switch on the air conditioner because it smelled too (apparently they do not change or clean the filters).
Only a few pots and pans, one of which could not be used because scratched. After the first and only service they provided, one brand polo shirt of us 'misteriously, disappeared. They only changed the sheets and towels, they didn't clean anything but they had plenty of time to rammage our belongings. We reported what happened to the receptionists to no avail, because their only job is ask you to pay in full when you arrive: they do not follow up on your complains. The worst rental experience we had. Of course, the apartment did not look like at all the ones posted on their webpage.

Room Tip: Choose another place to stay.

we enjoyed our second stay at the Aegean and once again found it to be very suitable for our needs. We requested a renovated apartment on the 23 floor, all the beds were very comfortable and the lounge/dining/kitchen area was a fantastic size and accommodated the five of us really well. The views were sensational.The location is excellent - walk to supermarkets and Cavill Avenue, the night markets and of course, the beach which is only one block away. There are many eating places suitable for all tastes including a great Indian restaurant on the ground floor of the apartment block.
The best thing about the the Aegean are the sport facilities - we used the indoor pool, spa and sauna at least twice a day - it was never crowded while we were there. The BBQ facilities are good and the tennis court was a good bonus. One downside was the extra charge to hire the tennis racquets (from memory about $4.00/racquet/hour) - the were not in great condition but we still had a lot of fun.
The service from both booking over the phone and also at reception was excellent- the staff were very helpful and pleasant. We also booked tickets to Dreamworld - very easy and just as cheap as booking on-line. There was zero noise from any other apartments and no street noise unless we had the balcony doors open. Parking was good in the secure underground car park.
I would recommend this as a good option for families looking for a budget place to stay - we were very impressed with the facilities given the price paid.

Room Tip: Ask for renovate apartment with ocean view - apartment 2312 was great

On paper this apartment looked pretty good. It was large, with a new TV, couch and fridge, but the cooktop, oven and dishwasher were old and all faulty. The glass topped tables are extremely dangerous for families, with sharp edges right at child head hight. The interior is well past its prime, but that's ok. Advertised as air conditioned, but bedrooms had only ceiling fans, I would not want to be here in summer. Impossibly noisy, we were on the fifth floor and the bar across the street made sleep impossible until early morning (~1 am). Combine that with curtains so thin they didn't block out street light, let alone day light. Most things are forgiveable, but the noise and the blinds mean we would never consider returning.

Room Tip: Find somewhere else

If you want cheap and cheerful this is your place! Our room had one Queen (or was it King) bed and two singles. Two bathrooms. A very large living area surrounded by windows (the garden view isn't a garden view by the way - it's more like a building view).

Pros
Nice clean sheets/pillows - no doona just blankets
Spacious
Good location
Price
Indoor heated pool/spa/gym (although I didn't use gym)

Cons
Noise - proximity to road works made it very difficult to sleep (they start work at 7am even on weekends)
The curtains were awful. I went to close mine and all I could smell was dust and had to move beds. I get the feeling the place could use a little make-over.
Reception not manned for long so don't go looking for assistance there!

If you can put up with the fact that it's a little unloved I guess you'll do fine. I'd avoid it until after the road works though and after that I'd advise requesting an upper level apartment because the partygoers keep you awake!

Room Tip: Get one away from the roadworks and up high!

We stayed for three nights in an apartment on the 25th floor with ocean views and it was amazing. We were lucky enough to have a whale breach right in front of the apartment while we were having breakfast. We had read the TA reviews and so when booking we requested a renovated apartment. The living space and balconies were huge and it was fully equipped with everything you could need. The entry foyer is attractive and the location is great with a very short and pleasant walk along the beachfront to the centre of Surfers.

Room Tip: Choose a renovated apartment with ocean views

Stayed with some friends for a long weekend (May 2013), low season so prices were a steal. The apartment was HUGE, amazing balcony (saw a humpback whale breaching for 20 minutes!), nice kitchen and all. The interior design was fine, many have mixed reviews here...these are individual apartments that are rented out through a common office.... EXPECT VARIATIONS!
But, staff was very helpful, just tell them if you aren't happy with anything.

Indoor pool was warm, gym is tiny but does the job off peak hours....

Great location!

Room Tip: Make sure the room has a balcony facing the ocean!
