I was on the Gold Coast for business and decided to put on a few extra days of R & R with my wife and we picked up a very good rate of $99 a night for a one bedroom apartment.
Great location in the centre of Coolangatta, walking distance of all you need – beach, restaurants, cafes, pubs and club. For those not familiar with Coolangatta it still remains a bit of small town feel and whist approaching, it has not reached the depths of over development that has occurred in Surfers Paradise.
The apartment was reasonably spacious with a large balcony. Although we did not use them, it is equipped with microwave, cooktop, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. Also well provided for with crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils.
The pool and surrounding area is very nice and beach is across the road.
If I had to be negative I would say it is looking a little tied in some areas but this not unusual in the high traffic areas of the Gold Coast.
Highly recommend at the right price.
Also if you are looking for good home style food (breakfast or lunch) at very reasonable prices, across the road from the Calypso is the Sweet Talk Cafe.
