“Loved the Sierra Grand”
Reviewed 31 July 2008

We took a chance as there had not been many reviews of this hotel (it had only been open for 3 months or so) and our family of two kids and two adults were very pleasantly surprised.
We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment, which was spacious, clean and well appointed with modern brand new appliances and furniture.
The real highlight of this property was the indoor and outdoor pools and spas, and also the sauna and gymnasium.
The location was opposite Pacific Fair Shopping Centre and the Casino, and only two short blocks from the patrolled section of the beach itself.
Staff were friendly and helpful, and I would stay there again, however I would request a higher floor, as there was some street noise audible from the Gold Coast Highway in the evening in our 4th floor apartment. We did have a look from an apartment on the 26th floor and the view of the Pacific Ocean was magnificent.

Reviewed 30 July 2008

We have just returned from 7 nights at the Sierra Grand. We were on the 19th Floor on the right hand side of the building as you look out to the ocean. We had a lovely view but may have not been the same from the back of the hotel or on the left hand side. I did request an ocean view on high floor upon booking.

The hotel is situated opposite Pacific Fair Shopping Centre (about a 5 walk across the highway and good 10 minute walk into the heart of Broadbeach. It is around a lot of buildings that are under construction but the noise level from this was not too bad as we were up high enough. We did find convenient the shops located on the highway side of the building under the Bel Air. An IGA, bottle shop, Pizza, Chinese. Only 2 minutes walk from the back entrance.

The apartment was lovely with modern furnishings. It was a good size with room for us the spread out. The kitchen was well equipped for a family stay along with washer and dryer. There were 2 bathrooms with a bath in the one off the master. The blinds were able to block out the early morning sun.

We swam in the indoor pool which was reasonably warm but couldn't stay in too long with the kids. The spa was quite a bit warmer and we hopped in this at the end to warm up. The gym was very well equipped and the outdoor pool was quite warm but didn't go in due to the wind chill factor. There were 2 BBQ's attached which looked good for warmer weather.

The beach was about 200m away along with a great park for the kids to play in and lots of space to run around in.

The staff were friendly but we were only given one key which was difficult when we went our separate ways. They were arranging another key.

I would certainly recommend the hotel to anyone. We really enjoyed it but maybe would have preferred to be a little closer to the action as we did hop in the car to go to dinner as the weather was quite chilly to walk in the cold weather the distance.

  • Liked — Ocean view and clean, new apartment
  • Disliked — No real complaints
