We booked directly with the hotel as I wanted to find out about the rooms etc. Got an extremely good rate which was much better than internet or booking sites eg Wotif/Needitnow etc.
Arrived late Saturday afternoon and reception was closed but managed to find our room ok. Upon entering found that it had not been serviced so after numerous phone calls to after hours service they finally tracked down the management who came and did a quick service on the room.
Apartment was well fitted out with a well stocked kitchen with every utensil, appliance you would need. Even right down to an umbrellas, green shopping bags etc. Nice modern two way bathroom with consistent hot water for showers. No face washers though.
Decor was comfortable and well maintained but there were these awful vases of fake flowers everywhere which looked a bit ordinary.
BBQ area was great, right on the beach adjoining the tennis court and pool. Great nightly atmosphere where families were eating dinner and the kids were playing around on the tennis court etc. Absolutely no shade around the pool or over deck chairs overlooking the beach, with the strong sun would recommend installation of shade protection.
Management were a bit indifferent, not that customer focussed and absolutely stunk of cigarette smoke which was rather off putting. I had to telephone them the day after departure as I had left a pair of earrings in the bathroom and her first reaction was to launch into my staff don't steal things, very honest etc, this is even before I could let her know exactly where I left them. It left a rather nasty feeling as overall our experience was quite pleasant but I did not expect to have this defensive tirade launched at me even before I had finished what I was trying to tell her. Since then I received a very curt message on my voice mail advising the earrings could not be found. I am afraid the jury is out on this one as I knew exactly where I had left them.
Overall good location, close by and within easy walking distance of Broadbeach and Surfers.
We hired a car for a couple of days but found the cheapest price was to go into one of the hire car offices around Surfers. We hired a 8 seater Tarago and was far cheaper this way than utilising the recommendation of the company by reception. We travelled with another family so it was very cost effective.
Would I stay there again, maybe for a family holiday , close to everything with lots of kids around where they can all safely play and the safety of a gate and fence along the back fence line.
