Excellent. Easy access, late entry, courteous staff, decent fridge, perfect in every way. Only issue was the pouring rain and insufficient car parks underneath. We had to unload and then park the car, hubby had to get wet with his flu, not so good. But otherwise extremely happy.

Great location, great views, buses at door if you don't have a car. Hotel very clean and friendly staff but our room was very tired. Mismatched furniture in living room, lounge/sofa bed very uncomfortable to sit on (needed replacing). No air-conditioning in bedroom, (ceiling fan only) Air-con only living area. Pool area lovely & clean and pool was heated :) Good value for money. Would stay again. :)

This complex is OK if you use one of the web services (e.g. TripAdvisor) to buy it "on special". It's clean, it's very quiet, and it has parking included.

Biggera Waters is the north end of Surfers' Paradise on Australia's Gold Coast. This is the end you stay if you are a boating enthusiast, because this is where the marina is. It is also an expensive part of the world, and you can forget on-street parking, there won't be any. Which is why you should look for accommodation that includes parking: RPR includes underground security parking.

Late-night check-in enables you to discover that their after-hours service is a call centre that is not even on site. It works, an it enables them to give themselves an extra star for having a 24-hour reception; but it's one of my pet hates. Sadly, accommodation in this area is over-competitive, so most properties put their front desk through to a call centre after hours.

The rooms are small, but clean and relatively well appointed. Cost-cutting is obvious: the queen bed is two singles pushed together, which gives you a line down the middle, but enables them to instantly re-configure the room. Cable TV is there, but only the basic channels. Then again, on holidays, who wants to watch TV?

The rooms have full cooking facilities, which is great for longer stays, and a functioning washing machine and clothes dryer (I know, I used them...)

The manager has a quirky sense of humour: very Australian. I thought he was great, but I can imagine some Americans would be taken aback by it. Relax guys, it's what Australians are like {Big Grin}.

This is an OK three-star. Whether it's "OK or "Great" depends on the price you get it for.

Room Tip: The amount you pay will determine how good the room is.

What can I say RPR is the best accommodation I have stayed in to date, I was given a 1 Bedroom Apartment on the Ground floor and up grade from the Studio which is a great thumbs up from me. lots of room in the apartment, LCD with 25 or so Foxtel channels, some views of the Broadwater from the outside area, Washing machine, Dishwasher, Dryer, shower, aircond Microwave, Fridge, all the kitchen cutlery and utensils required. The room is spacious with combo kitchen, living and a closed off Bedroom and ensuite, A balcony that opens up to the Broadwater not too much noise. I stayed in unit 1 3 B (tower B) Initially the first night i could hear the neighbours from the Neighbour backing the bedroom wall which was 1 4 B during the night and early morning but the second night was ok noise wise, there are Powerful street lights lit up at night outside the window so bring your eye masks as the blinds do somewhat to block the street lights. The Shower rose was powerful, the bath tub has seen better days, The swimming pool was warm, the Spa was great to be in, The car park was spacious, The Games room was simple, the electric BBQ was great just needed a tap closer to the BBQ so that cleaning it was more quicker, there is a hose but its 30 meters away in the carpark. Location right next to the Bus stop 30 secs walk or 35secs across the road the only negative is the Surfside 706 bus by Translink is a rarity so you could wait 30mins or hour on PH/Sundays or you could walk 1Km to Brisbane Rd along the great shared walking and cycle path along the broadwater with views of Straddie to die for. Biggera Waters is a quite area in between Runaway bay and Southport more family orientated will stay again at RPR.

Room Tip: be early and you might be able to get a good room, this place was book out all long weekend

Stayed three nights - 17/5, 18/5 & 19/5 - chose to upgrade to one bedroom apartment as studio rooms have interconnecting doors - wanted to avoid any noise from adjoining rooms.
Surfers Paradise CBD, Broadbeach Mall and most tourist attractions are within a 20/30 minutes drive.
There is a bus stop directly outside the apartment.
Pros - the apartment has a kitchen and laundry - all you need is food and hungry people.
Try Cafe Uno at Metromarkets, turn left - walk or drive 500 metres - great food - prices are very reasonable - they will suprise.
Cons - try to book an apartment with a walk in shower - those over the bath are not easy to access and would be difficult for elderly guests.
Noise from next unit balcony carried - did not cease at 10pm as required in block rules.

Room Tip: Plenty of room for entertaining on the balcony and lounge/dining - the one bedroom apartment ktichen...
