Great apartment and great location. Hassle free and enjoyable. Large and spacious, quiet, with the Tedder Avenue café/restaurant strip 3 minutes walk away, patrolled beach just 3 minutes in the other direction. Pool and other communal areas well maintained.

Room Tip: North or north-east facing balconies have great views.

The apartment was big, spacious, clean, well equiped with great facilities. It was also very centrally located, you are a couple of minutes to cafes, Surfers, Sea World and the road out to the theme parks. We could not fault it in any way except that there are no security latches on the windows and our 19 month old could open the front door. We have four small children and it did make us a bit nervous but apart from that it was brilliant! We will definately be going back there again :)

We stayed 4 night at contessa in Nov 2013 and we got a three bedrooms apartment for 8 people. It is probably one of the biggest apartment we have ever stayed.( pretty of room for both adult and kids)
It has a superb location and. just 2 mins walk away from the beach. ( And an awesome ocean view from the apartment)
However, the service can be a little better as there was inadequate toilet roll, paper, detergent and TV was not working for a night! But luckily, the television was fixed within a day after contacting the receptionist.

Overall, I am happy with my stay at contessa and will certainly be staying there again!

We stayed in room 81 for 7 days, it was a large spacious 3 bedroom apartment, great view of the river from a long balcony and/or through the floor to ceiling windows and doors. Rooms were a generous size, beds were comfortable. Big self contained kitchen. Well presented and clean.… We rebooked to stay again the following week for another 3 nights, this time we got room 94, bit of a view of the ocean, we were just as happy with this room, same layout and size, although the beds and lounges weren't as comfortable.
There were a few maintenance issues but nothing that was a major problem.
Overall very happy with the accommodation, service and Value for money!
Next trip to Gold Coast we will definitely be staying there again.

We stayed 7 nights in apartment 112 on floor 11and loved the complex especially the indoor heated pool and spa. Our apartment was large and comfortable and we enjoyed the views from every window. It was great to be able to lie in bed and see all the lights (and lightning) and the sunrise. However this apartment needs maintenance and I sent a list of issues to the managers by email after we left. In the kitchen some crockery and glasses were chipped. A non-stick frypan needs to be thrown out as it left bits of non-stick residue on our food. The glass shower screen fell off on my daughter while she was showering!
Other items needing attention were the sliding doors, stained/dirty lounge and doona cover, kitchen cupboards needed adjusting, noisy fan, and various other problems. I would not expect to find all this in an apartment advertised as "Superior Accommodation".
We still enjoyed our stay and loved the proximity to the beach and the shopping/eating area in Tedder St. The water quality in all the pools was excellent and the grounds were well cared for. The acting managers Maureen and Harry were always friendly and helpful.
We would stay again.
