“Great location and view”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

This was a spare of the moment getaway for my son and I. I wanted to be close to the 'traditional' Surfers Paradise but also wake up to an amazing view.

This place offered both of these. It was fantastic to drive in, park the car and be able to walk every where. Good food, entertainment and attractions were within walking distance.

To wake and see the sun come up over the water was magical. The best part was I didn't need to get out of bed to do it!!!

The downside was the hotel is very old and dated. It's my understanding they are upgrading the apartments but we stayed in an unrenovated apartment. Whilst the decor was old and reminded me of my younger years, it had everything we needed and I was happy with our choice.

Yes I would stay here again as long as the price reflected the apartment and not just the brand name.

Stayed July 2014

I'm taking my wife to Paradise Center Apartments for our 20th wedding anniversary on September the 21st. Can't wait to get there so looking forward to it because I have been there before with the Wife and Kids and had the best experience. They made us feel so welcome.We are traveling from New Zealand. Bring on September the 21st! I highly recommend it.

Proximity of Hotel was just fantastic' everything at your fingertips from the beach across the road right down to a supermarket within the vicinity, along with shopping Bar & restaurants at your finger tips.
Timezone complex situated on the 4th floor great for families & couples alike.
Our room on the 22nd floor had terrific views of both the Beach & shops, the room itself certainly needed upgrading however was clean & more than comfortable, our friends were located on the 28th floor their room of same layout had been refurbished to a high standard, the frontage of the complex is going through a makeover so am assuming some of the more tired rooms are doing the same.
Disappointing factors, the rooms are only serviced every 8 days, we stayed 8 days would of been nice to have the linen changed, were only allocated 2 medium sized towels was a cost for an extra 2 towels...Overall though this is a great Hotel would certainly recommend it & will be staying again.

Room Tip: Perhaps ask for a modern refurbished room.

Lovely spacious apartment on 23rd floor of Ballah tower. The construction at the bottom of the building was a bit daunting upon arrival but once we negotiated that and made our way to our room we were pleasantly surprised. Beautiful view of the beach and Surfers Paradise central. The 'secret door' as we referred to it (Timezone) was a nice surprise for our kids and gave them some freedom to come and go from our apartment in relative safety. The pool was lovely even though it was Winter, nicely heated and the spa was also a treat.

We have just returned from an 8 night stay in a 2 bedroom executive apartment, the apartment was spacious & had amazing views. The staff were fantastic to deal with when I asked to move apartments due to street noise. There is construction going on & we were getting woken at 6am each morning with the noise but that was the only downside, we didn't mind it so much because the location & apartment was fantastic. I would definitely stay there again, it was lovely to walk straight into the shopping centre from the tower. We stayed in the Ballah tower & had fantastic views of the beach & city.
