Paros on the Beach
Reviewed 27 January 2012

We stayed at 2 bedroom garden apartment. Stayed for 6 nights of 8 before checking out and going to breakfree beachpoint.


Large upfront fees
-Dirty, dusty rooms which obviously had not been cleaned.
-no cleaning supplies provided except a dirty mop
-$1 per toilet roll, we were left with what remained from the previous guests.
-no air conditioning, very hot with no ventilation in bathrooms.
-on the first day when we got there the blind in the shower fell down which was patched up by the staff promptly with garbage bags and tape.

-DVD player and hairdryer were not provided although misleadingly stated on the Paros website.

- fans had 2 settings, extremely fast and off.

-door to ensuite fell apart because there was no ventilation in shower. Did I mention there was more rust than the titanic?

Don't go Paros! Go break free.. They were pleasant giving us a perfect room free coffee vouchers on arrival and only $20 more for bigger rooms.

Older 60s-70s style units with 2 modern bathrooms (shower only), large open plan living area and verandah,,, showing it's age ( sliding doors) but very spacious and functional. Well equipped kitchen and separate laundry. Nice lap pool and tennis court. Direct access to beach

This apartment was a little old but very clean and suitable for my family including 3 children aged 7,9 and 12. The kitchen was clean and welll stocked with utensils etc. with a full size fridge. having a washing machine and dryer was very handy.
The children loved the tennis court and we walked on the beach every day. Just 5 minutes walk along the beach or 10 minutes along the road is a fabulous surf club with great prices and great food, we ate there nearly every day.
My husband and I enjoyed the humungous king sized bed not even noticing when the children crawled in!!!
Its positioning is great with plenty of things to do within a half hour drive and the main street only 5 minutes one way and Pacific Fair (huge shopping centre) 5 minutes the other way.
The staff were friendly and accomodating.

Perfect beachside holiday for all the family.
Stayed in unit 25 which was very spacious, and well set up with fantastic ocean views.
Loved the fact that you could sit on one balcony and watch the kids in the pool and spa or on the other balcony and watch a game of tennis.
Loved being able to walk out the back gate right on to the beach for a morning walk (bit cold for a swim at this time of year).
Will definately stay here whenever in Surfers.

We have just returned from our stay at Paros on the beach. For 3 1/2 star accommodation, we were very happy with the apartment we were in. It fitted 6 adults and 2 children in comfortably. The apartment was beachfront and was neat to have the beach right there as our playground as we had our children and grandchildren with us. The apartment was clean and had being redecorated recently. It had heat pumps and central heating (which we needed, as the nights were cold). The staff were very helpful and accommodating.

Paros is a 20 min walk to broadbeach and 15 to surfers, which was great walking distance to head either way for dinner and drinks.

Only complaint we have is, we didn't stay longer.

Am already thinking about our next stay there and on the gold coast.

We stayed in a ground unit apartment right on the beach in January. It was simply amazing. The views were stunning. We opened the door from the lounge room and stepped right onto a small backyard and the beach started within meters. This apartment was 3 late bedrooms an 2 bathrooms. It had a full sized kitchen, dining table and lounge room as well as a laundry! The unit had recently been renovated and was clean, spacious and a perfect holiday. It was apartment number one. We spent our days looking at the ocean, taking long walks on the beach which was literally footsteps from the back door, and checking out the gold coast. It is a short walk to both surfers and broadbeach.

The complex itself is a little old, but it is very clean and tidy and the unit we stayed in had recently been renovated.

I would highly recommend this for anyone wanting a unit right on the beach.
