Contessa Holiday Apartments
Ranked #5 of 5 Hotels in Main Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 December 2011

We have stayed in these apartments twice now and are impressed. The first time we stayed with my parents in a 3 bedroom - easily big enough for the 6 of us. The second time we had a 2 bedroom. The apartments were both very clean and nicely furnished. The facilities at Contessa are great - lovely outdoor pool, tennis court & indoor pool well used by us! It's not far to walk to the beach and Tedder Ave is around the corner with lots of great restaurants and bars.

We have stayed at a variety of properties at Main Beach over the last 15years. Contessa is the only place to which we have returned to stay again & again, in both 2 & 3 bedroom units. We have visited on at least 7 occasions & always found the accommodation to be clean, well-furnished, all with great views & well cared for by friendly staff. The facilities have always been well-maintained & we enjoy playing tennis & using both the indoor & outdoor pools, which we frequently find we have all to ourselves! The location could not be better, next to a quiet river but a quick stroll to the beach or a variety of restaurants on Tedder Avenue. Certainly the price cannot be beaten; we have found Contessa to be the "pick of the bunch" in Main Beach for value-for-money!

I booked a 3 bedroom apartment for a week. It comfortably accommodated 7 family members and the view from all rooms was excellent. The kids were running around in the apartment and having fun.The amenities in the rooms were standard and fairly well maintained. The spa was under renovation then but the indoor pool was good. It is only a walking distance to the beach and about a 5 min drive to the Sea World.

There is a secured underground car-park but didn't quite like the lift which seems threatening to break down each time we went onto it. Unfortunately, there were internet access in the apartment but there were paid wireless internet access in the lounge area on the ground floor.

Staff were friendly and helpful. Overall, Quiet enviroment and had a relaxing stay. Value for money.

The 2B & 2bath room was better than the pictures on the website. Excellent views and location. Played tennis, swam in both pools, used the spa and gym and had great service from our hosts. Finally and website that accurately described the facility. Will stay there again -Worth every penny!

The location of the Contessa is excellent. A block to the beach, walking distance to Tedder Avenue precinct and a short drive to Sea World. My 3 young kids enjoyed both the heated indoor pool and huge outdoor pool. The 3 bedroom apartment was excellent and well equiped with fantastic views. Staff were friendly and helpful.

There are lots of positives - fabulous views, spacious apartment, lovely manicured spacious lawns, nice tennis court and sparkling clean pool. HOWEVER the bathrooms had black slimey mould! It took ages to clean both showers. The rest of the apartment was very clean. Also a lot of the lights were not working. I was also annoyed we were not informed that painters would be on our balcony for 2 of the 5 days. This led to an embassing incident when i walked into the living room at 7am in my underwear only to find a man on the balcony. Also when checking in, i didn't appreciate being kept waiting a significant amount of time at Reception while the Manager chatted on the phone. A big NO NO in my opinion. Inspite these negatives we did have a good time.

Holiday with my 4 young kids to see the theme parks (movie world, wet n wild and sea world) and some shopping at Harbour town. The 3 BR apartment on a 18th floor with breath taking ocean views was amazing. Clean and spacious apartment with a fully equipped and clean kitchen. Its location was fantastic, quiet neighbourhood and easy to get to all the places we needed to go within 20 mins drive. Paid AUD5.50 for wifi hotspot access at the community room. The kids and us had a great time.
