“The best view, a little shabby around the edges”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

We stayed for two nights in a three bedroom apartment with our two small children. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The highlights - amazing view, excellent front desk service (we made a number of requests which were quickly and pleasantly seen to), super large and pleasant apartment (bigger than our house), convenient location to the beach, nice pool and games facilities and quality toiletries. The lowlights - rooom was a little shabby (no plug for the spa, old plug for the kitchen, torn light fitting, small chunk missing out of plaster) and the overal height a little worrying with a three year old (but the "balcony" is enclosed and thankfully our boy didn't show any interest in playing with the windows). The breakfast on floor 77 was pleasant enough.

I had a wonderful stay and was happy with the staff! nice and close to everything with perfect views of the ocean, and night life. We went for a birthday and stayed on level 66 sub penthouse, as well as a three bedroomer! I recommend the Q1 as i thoroughly enjoyed it, as did my friends.

even though it was only for a couple of nights it was a fantastic experience, the staff were impeccably friendly and the venue was outstanding. The view is the amazing and the whole weekend was worth it!

I stayed 5 nights in the 1 bedroom apartment on the 36th floor.
First impression when I opened the door: WOW! It's spacious, bright, airy. Everything you need for that relaxed holiday planned. The rooms were clean, the carpet felt great underneath bare foot, the couches were comfy to lounge in and snuggle on.
Really close to the beach and just a few minutes walk from a nice shopping area.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2013

We stayed here, sunday - wednesday. We were booked in a 1 bedroom spa apartment with ocean view!

We got an apartment on level 14 (I was secretly a little disappointed when the lady at reception announced the level our room was on as I was hoping for higher) facing the ocean although there was a large apartment block smack bang in the middle of our ocean view! (not that this can be helped!).

The room was perfect for the three of us, Had eveything you could need, kitchen, laundry etc!

The portacot we hired was set up in the bedroom on arrival, we figured the $10 a night was cheaper than having to lug out portacot to the GC.

The only thing that wasnt great about the stay was breakfast at Longboards - Firstly we waited ages for our food, and it was pretty bad. Imagine soggy toast from the excess liquid swimming around your plate and hard yolks on your 'poached eggs'.

One recommendation for improvement at Q1 would be to have better roller shades on the living room windows as they are only really for shade and the room is quite light as the sun comes on, They have block out type blinds on the balcony - Im unsure as to why they didnt use them for all windows. Very minor issue though really!

Room Tip: Apartment style 'E'! one bedroom plus study!
