We stayed at the Chevron Renaissance for 7 nights in late May to early June and found it to be O.k. Having said that, we are planning another trip to the Gold Coast and the Chevron Renaissance is unlikely to appear on our itinerary. So here’s the run down:

Location: Pretty good if you are looking for somewhere central to Surfers Paradise. The shopping complex underneath was fairly handy, especially the supermarket, but of course the trade off is the noise….we were located on the 17th floor with an excellent view of the beach…and the ever present sound of the traffic & other holiday makers.

Pools: A choice of 3 great looking pools which we really didn’t make much use of due to inclement weather…though we did visit the heated indoor pool once we quickly got out as a) the operators obviously had a different interpretation of the concept of heated (it was actually rather cold) b) given the poor weather the indoor pool was seeing quite a bit of use in total and the cleaning routine wasn’t quite up to scratch…lots of delicious looking particles floating about. I’ve no doubt that in the warmer months the outdoor pools would be great…but with the cooler weather they were of no value.

Tour Desk: Ok, we got our theme park tickets there saved a couple of dollars….

Parking: Good….though I suspect that if we had been there at a “peak” time it may have been a different story. But during our stay we were always able to get a pretty good spot.

Reception & Other Staff: Not so good….while there were no major dramas at check-in the reception desk staff were not particularly helpful or friendly and when we rang down to request that they send someone up to clean the bathrooms which did not seem to have been cleaned after the last occupants they never turned up. Finally, when we went to check out reception was painful…..

The Apartment: Over all, a little cramped, but generally clean and in good condition with the notable exception of the bathrooms. They were a tad foul…..the tiles in both were covered in hair. We ended up cleaning them ourselves as, despite our request to reception for a cleaner to attend to it, no one ever turned up.

So overall it was just O.k…..I do feel that for the money you’re not getting either great value or service so on our next trip we will try somewhere else….we had a great holiday, all the theme parks were fantastic, shopping etc was great…but really the Chevron Renaissance didn’t add anything to our experience….

I went to 'Towers of Chevron' after going on a workplace famil last year. I am a travel agent and viewed over 40 properties throughout the Gold Coast. 2 properties stuck out and one was the 'Towers of Chevron' - So it was only fitting that I stay there for a girls weekend!! The rooms were amazing - We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment. We entered th apartment and simultaniously all 5 of us went 'oohhh, oooooh, ahhhh!!" - Beautiful polished floors, marble bench tops - modern furnishings and the most beautiful views of the beach & city. We really did enjoy having breakfast on the balcony. The girls absolutely loved the place. It is right next door to a Coles Supermarket so save a few of those precious $$$'s and buy breakfast & snacks there (milk too, you'll need coffee after all of the partying the Gold Coast has to offer!!). Also, just downstairs is SHOPPING! Yes, that is right - a 2 minute walk across the beautiful grounds (that resemble more of a resort style feeling than apartment style) you are smack bang in the middle of Surfers Paradise. We were in between Southport & Broadbeach so only 4 minutes drive to each (can't forget to shop at Australia Fair (SP) and Pacific Fair (BB). Also just a 3 minute drive to Jupiters including waiting for traffic lights!! Check in was fast and efficiant - The rooms were very clean and tidy - The location great - free underground parking was convenient to whichever tower you were staying in - we could not have asked for more! Splash out and treat yourself - Remember that saying 'you only get what you pay for' - It's true!!!

Stayed here in April to attend my friends wedding from Melbourne. We usually stay at Crown Towers Resort and defiantly wouldn’t have booked here if it wasn’t for all the guests staying in the same hotel.

Defiantly not a family environment. There are way too many young party goers hanging around yelling and screaming throughout the night. There were beer bottles in the foyer and carparks. There is no way I would have let my wife and young kids downstairs after 6pm. I think the issue with the location is the all the clubs are basically across the road.

Staff were rude. Room was very small. View was ok but interrupted by buildings and too loud to enjoy the balcony. Parking is very hard to find if you brining a car.

For me, I prefer to stay on the Northern end of Surfers Paradise not in the heart itself, Crown Towers I like more because its dead quiet at night so you can relax and feel safe with young children but can still walk to all the shops, cafes and each in a few minutes. If you can secure on of the renovated rooms your laughing because they are twice the size, better location and have the best facilities on the Gold Coast.

Wouldnt be staying here again.

I recently stayed at this complex in a 3 bedroom apartment with my 9 month old and another couple and found it to be excellent. I rented the apartment through a business on ebay and got an excellent rate.

The apartment was very modern and had fantastic ocean views (level 33). The beds and furniture were excellent. The complex is very central and has fantastic pools - especially the main pool which has sandy shores! There are several restaurants, lots of small shops and a coles supermarket and bakery below - everything you could need for your stay is all there. It is also a short walk to the beach and Cavill Ave etc.

The 'trade-off' is that even from floor 33 there was a bit of noise - especially on the Friday and Sat nights but it's not too bad.

It's hard to review this apartment as a 'hotel' because being privately owned you don't use the reception and the apartments are all furnished differently depending on the owner however the hotel facilities are excellent.

I stayed in tower 2 on the 32nd floor and highly recommend this complex. The location is ideal, walking distance to the beach, shops, and river. Tower 2 has a Coles supermarket right underneath but is still easily accessed from all 3 towers.
I did a lot of research and booked this apartment through the stayz website (property no. 23072) which saved me at least $50 per night. This way I also knew exactly which apartment I was getting and I didn't need to deal with reception at all. The service was excellent.
The apartment was 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms which easily accommodated 3 adults and 2 young children. It was spacious & very clean with views of the ocean and surrounds. The complex is very secure with access only to your floor and the communal areas. May is low season so it was very quiet and we often had the pool to ourselves. The outside pool is cold at this time of year but the huge spa was perfect.
I highly recommend this complex to all age groups. The high floors have magnificent views and you'll find it very hard to leave.
