“Fantastic stay”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

Our family stayed at Mari court in May. It was a fantastic place to stay, very close to both surfers and broadbeach. Apartments were clean and comfortable with a nice view of the gardens. The staff were wonderful and nothing was to much trouble. We loved how the Mari court was only 3 levels and we had the ground floor. Great for young families.I would recommend the Mari court to anyone . We can't wait to go back. Thanks for a great holiday.

Stayed May 2014

We stayed for 5 nights in April 2014. Apartments are lovely. Very clean and staff were excellent. Great security for the underground parking and also when moving around. All tours can be booked from reception. It is on the broadbeach side of Surfers and only about a 3 min walk to the beach. Restaurants in Broadbeach lovely and much better than going into Surfers.
Only about a 20min drive to all the Theme Parks. Would definitely stay there again. No complaints at all

The attitude of the staff at Mari Court has always been excellent. The rooms are clean and tidy and spacious. Love the tropical garden atmosphere and when Ive needed help with my bookings for my tours, reception has always assisted. Love it all. Better than staying at a hotel where they dont care who you are.

Had some melodramas before check-in and had to return home, notifying Ayla's to let her know we were on our way, upon check-in she was warm and friendly.

Overall the resort is clean, reasonably maintained and competitively priced. A great place for young families - a good, contained location, with no highway noise, a generously sized and warm swimming pool ; and a decent sized and heated spa.

We stayed in unit 56 which had a lovely breeze from the balcony and quite private.
The unit was clean and quite large. Our blown light bulb was changed within minutes of letting reception know of the fault.

The only problem was it was a HOT NIGHT - only two of the three speeds for the ceiling fan in the bedroom were working and that was either too slow or too fast (wind tunnel); and the air-conditioner in the living room did not cool the bedroom.

The resort is close for the hiking tourist - 15 minutes walk into Surfers Paradise or Broadbeach, or a couple of minutes drive (should you not wish to walk).

A valuable extra are the Northcliffe Surf Club Breakfast vouchers that Mari Court provided us were quite satisfying - the breakfast was filling and the views were lovely from the dinning area.

In conclusion, a pleasurable experience and I definitely would return again.




PS: THIS IS NOT THE FAULT OF THE RESORT BUT MUST BE MENTIONED:

The FOXTEL was woeful - so much so, that I would not give anyone the time of day if they tried to sign me up.

It only had the bare-bones selection of channels to choose from, and these were scattered in scarcity amongst an overwhelming number of channels that displayed the notorious "upgrade to view this channel" text screen.

We spent more time surfing through these channels trying to find something decent to watch than actually watching. The added 'bonus' was seeing some free-air channels were not available.

Foxtel should provide a better deal to holiday resorts as it is a way of demonstrating their full product range to prospective new clients.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our resort. We are so incredibly happy to hear you were impressed with your stay. We made sure to go up to the room and fix the fan the same day you notified us on departure, we hope next time you will tell us straight away so we can fix any problems while you are still staying with us. Our FOXTEL package does have 30 channels included we have them displayed inside the compendium on the coffee table so you can better navigate the active & non active channels. Unfortunately FOXTEL are unable to take away the channels that aren't provided so it does make it a little less convenient to find the channels you would like. We are so glad you enjoyed your experience with us and are happy that you have already contacted us to stay again, we look forward to your next stay with us.

I have just come back today from a stay here and i dont have any complaints. The location was quiet, and we heard no noise from any rooms around us. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the apt was clean, spacious, comfy and affordable. We had 3 children and 2 adults in a 3br and there was plenty of room. The apt had the basic kitchen utensils and cooking appliances you need, key locks for the balconies, secure access, 1 bathroom and ensuite, laundry, 3 decent sized rooms and foxtel. There was a pool, bbq facilities, mini golf, arcade and undercover car park on site. The bus stop, with busses going to the airport and all the theme parks was a 2 min walk away and the beach and a convenience store within walking distance. Would definitely recommend for anyone to stay here, and would have no hesitation booking again.

We recently stayed a mari court, 2 adults + 2 kids. The location is perfect. At surfers paradise without being right in the centre of the hustle & bustle. The hotel grounds are lovely and the pool. Couldn't keep the kids out of the pool. Short 100m stroll to patrolled beach. Fantastic price for family of 4 for high season time. Nice & comfortable 2bd apartment, could do with minor refurb, but still lovely & affordable. Staff were nice & helpful. Very happy we stayed there. Will stay there again. Thanks. Rachael & Ray

Set between the busy Surfers and Broadbeach, 2 min walk to beach, close to buses to airport and Dreamworld. The 2 minute walk to beach was to a life guard patrolled area.

We were there for 5 days two families in three bedroom unit. Unit was clean, with kitchenette and an ensuite in one bedroom. Has heated swimming pool with sub tropical garden light by fairy lights at night. Really enjoyed our stay and good value compared to similar places in NZ. Pricing was very cheap, bare bones, with additional cleaning, additional towels, and internet being an additional charge which is to be expected. The choice was ours and we chose to clean ourselves and leave the electronics at home.

Room Tip: Top level rooms do get the view.
