“Still a great spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2012

Stayed here previously and was able to book same room again. Sensational views along beach, and easy walk to Tedder Ave. Heated pool is great this time of year. Have stayed few other spots at Main beach and havent been able to find same value for money yet.

We stayed in early Spring for a few days and thoroughly enjoyed all the facilities (indoor and outdoor pools, BBQs) as well as the spacious and beautifully decorated apartment. Very attentive and helpful staff - very keen to accommodate guests requests. A couple of maintenance issues that the staff were happy to attend to. Amazing location - so close to the beach and playgrounds - very family friendly! All round a great experience - we'd certainly go back again.

Stayed for 3 nights. We loved the apartment. It was spacious, large kitchen, and living area. Good size dining table. The balcony was huge with amazing views of all 3 rooms. The kids enjoyed the outdoor pool, although it was a bit cold, so migrated to the heated indoor pool. We also tried out the tennis courts, and made use of the outdoor BBQ area. Apartments are very close to the beach and to the Tedder av, cafe strip.
Also a good base for driving to Dreamworld etc. Nice to be out of the busy Surfers Paradise area.
Apartment we stayed in had been nicely decorated and modernly furnished, and beautifully clean. Also very soundproof, all we could hear was the surf. Only thing I would say negative is the bath tub was on the small size.
Reception staff were very helpful on our late check-in and early departure.

we stayed in a superior ocean view room. It was a beautiful large apartment with gorgeous views. The staff were lovely and helpful and we had a free bottle of wine. The street behind was Tedder Avenue which had lovely restaurants. It was far enough from the hustle and bustle of surfers but close enough to walk to if you wanted to.

Stayed for two nights for in a two bedroom ocean view apartment. Great views, very good facilities although second bedroom single beds were just that. Main bedroom had a huge ensite bathroom with shower and huge bath. Smaller second bathroom only had shower. Spacious lounge room with tv and dvd player as well as internet access (pay). Laudry had washer and dryer as well as neccessary detergents. Inlcuded in the room was shampoo etc tea/coffee milk etc. enough for the time we were there. Fabulous location close to the Tedder Avenue strip of shops and varity of restaurants, although many seemed to have closed down. All in all highly reccommend and would again pay the extra for the higher renovated rooms.

We stayed here during winter, and enjoyed 5 nights of great weather. The apartments are located very close to Tedder avenue with its lovely array of restaurants and cafes. Our 2 bedroom apartment faced directly onto Main Beach with views up and down the coast. The apartment was amazing, with a great layout consisting of a bedroom on either side of the main large living area. Our 5 year old slept in the second bedroom with bathroom located just outside the door to the bedroom, and my husband and I could enjoy the large HD TV in the living room. There were large TVs in each bedroom and the cupboard space, bathroom and laundry facilities were superb. I highly recommend this resort. The apartments are renovated and very clean and modern, with beautiful artwork and furnishings; the view is superb; the location is brilliant; and the indoor pool, spa, and sauna were very welcome during the winter season!

Room Tip: The higher floors offer amazing views up and down the coast. We actually heard very loud music comin...

We have stayed in many apartments on the Gold Coast and the standards vary a lot as each one is individually owned so the quality and decor fluctauate a great deal, with most having a generic but acceptable feel. This apartment, on the 20th floor with uninterrupted beach views from every room, took our breath away! We felt as though a trusting friend had allowed us the privilege of staying in their private luxury condo! The apartment was decorated so beautifully, we often bought takeaways from nearby Tedder Avenue and luxuriated in the ambience of the huge balcony, where we were lucky enough to see whales pass by! There was every possible gadget and device in the well appointed kitchen for those wanting to prepare their own meals, but we found great 'early bird' specials for dining and takeaways on Tedder Avenue so we didn't bother. Our teenagers were also very happy with the indoor pool, spa, gym and tennis courts. The 15 minute walk into the sleazy action of Cavill Avenue didn't seem to bother them, and we were delighted with the quiet elegance of Main Beach.

Room Tip: We snuk a peak into a couple of 'open for inspections' and I really preferred the 'middl...
