“Most amazing views ever! Friendly staff and great location...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2014

What a wonderful stay we had! It is away from the direct hustle and bustle at Surfers Paradise but yet so near whenever you want. I opened the curtains each morning to the most incredible views I have ever seen from each room -sea view and on side the canal and Gold Coast buildings!! and we all went for a swim in the sea and afterwards played tennis. Then had a lovely breakfast on the patio with cool breeze and sea view. We then headed off to theme parks or the many other tourist attractions at Surfers Paradise. We loved the heated huge spa pool as it was so relaxing after a busy day. The staff is very friendly and feels like family -we will definitely return in future! Thanks for a clean, beautifully furnished apartment and for the champagne on arrival!!

Room Tip: We stayed in a two bedroom apartment with unrestricted views of sea everywhere except the kid's...

My family and I recently stayed at Capricorn One and what a fantastic time we had. The room was modern and spacious and every previously read review raved about the view and now I know why, wow! Brenda and Steve are great people and very helpful. They did not impose themselves on you but were there if needed or for a chat. The boys loved the giant spa and glass elevator and its in a great spot to get to the theme parks and a nice 15 min walk to Cavil. We loved our stay and will be back ASAP.

From the moment we arrived the welcoming was very professional. Brenda gave us extra infomation we might need and used every advice she gave. The apartments are clean, we used the pool, sauna and tennis. Even spent sometime playing around the bbq area. only 2 minutre walk from beach which made it easy. Love it all, thanks again.. oh and the good thing, the beach are patrolled from 730 till 6 in dec..

A fantastic spot for a holiday, we spent 5 nights at Capricorn One. On the edge of Surfer's and Main Beach, we were still within a comfortable walk along the lovely esplanade to Cavil Ave. Brenda and Steve were more than helpful with any enquiry or request we had. Undercover parking and overall security was excellent....we only had access to the floor we were staying on, the reception/pool/ground floor and the carpark because we had a car. If you want a view, I wouldn't want to be any lower than the third floor. The nights had the potential to be a little challenging on hot nights as there was only an airconditioner in the main living area, and whilst the airflow through the unit was great with the afternoon/evening sea breeze, the traffic noise woke us very early in the morning.....so then we made the most of the early morning and walked across the road for a swim before breakfast.....who wants to sleep in on a Gold Coast holiday anyway!

Amazing!! My husband surprised myself and our daughters to a beautiful family getaway at the Capricorn One. The room was perfect, splendid views, clean and spacious, with everything you could possibly want or need. Steve and Brenda were so welcoming and went above and beyond to make sure our stay was fabulous, genuinely lovely people that provide a great service and go that extra mile to make it an experience to remember. The children loved the pool and indoor spa. I loved the fact that everything was within walking distance, we had plenty of opportunities to go for walks and take in all of what Surfers Paradise has to offer. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Capricorn One and would recommend it to anyone looking for wonderful accommodation at a great price!!!! We cannot wait to return for another family get away and will definitely be making the Capricorn One our first choice! Thankyou Steve and Brenda for making our stay so memorable. Willie, Katie and the girls ;)

I recently stayed there with my teen son, a friend and her teen. We booked back in March due to it being high season and me visiting Australia for Christmas. We asked for a flat with a great view and Brenda and Steve graciously accommodated this: apartment 1801. What can I say- clean and spacious with amazing views. What a way to wake up looking out across the road to a fantastic patrolled beach! Can't beat it.
Convenience stores, bus stops, Cavill Ave and Tedder Ave all within walking distance. Complex very well managed and organised and Brenda extremely lovely and helpful at all times. Pool, wonderful indoor spa, sauna and BBQ area were great! Go to the night markets, Lavish beauty and Paradise Jetboating whilst there! Brenda can help with tips or bookings.
Apartment is fully equipped and my only wish would have been free Wifi. I would definitely go back and recommend Capricorn One to anyone. Thanks to Brenda for everything!!!

We stayed in Capricorn One for 6 nights in Dec 2013 and had booked 2 units, #1501 & #1502. Brenda was lovely and was very welcoming on our arrival, recommending places to go and what to do. Upon our booking, we had requested for a higher floor and for both units to be on the same floor and we were thrilled to know on our arrival that our requests were being accomodated. There are only 2 units on each floor, so there's a bit of privacy especially if you come with 2 families. The view was simply majestic and breathe-taking, overlooking the beach. We love sitting at the balcony looking at the sunrise and sunset. The apartments are clean and spacious for all of us. We would love to go back to Capricorn One again. A fantastic and memorable place for all of us.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor and a beach view
