The communication was excellent and the location to everything was quite handy without being on the main drag. They have done a decent job renovating the retro apartments to current styling. One minor downfall was the air-conditioning unit was based in the kitchen, making a little uncomfortable on a summer's hot night. Ceiling fans were based in both the living and the bedroom though.

Quiet & close to shops, cafes & restaurants

Quiet location one street back from the beach compared with the street on the beach which is very heavy with noisy traffic. The apartment is close to shops, cafes & restaurants. The apartment has been refurbished and is clean, large & comfortable. I can recommend this place. Good location, friendly staff, good value for money

Resort was close to beach and shops.

Pros: Close to everything and the service was excellent.
Location: Beach, shops, markets in walking distance.
The staff were very friendly and helpful I had to climb stairs and had a lot of luggage. They had organized help for when I arrived and when I was leaving. They made me feel very welcomed. Highly recommend staying there. I would go back there again.

Lovely, clean, airy apartment-beautiful ocean view

A lovely weekend in spite of rain one day. Apartment (11) very spacious and comfortable for staying inside during heavy rain. I loved short easy walk to shops, cafes, park and beach. View was magnificent even during the rain on Saturday. Management very friendly and helpful. Bed extremely comfortable, apartment so fresh, clean and fully equipped - exactly as shown in photos in the brochures etc.

Very comfortable, close to everything

Pros: Comfortable, good proximity, quiet
Surf Dance is a very comfortable apartment hotel, good off street parking and other amenities such as a pool. Close walk (one block) to main part of town (not a level walk so take this into account if you have any accessibility issues).

helpful managers made us feel safe after savage st

Pros: all good
Cons: nothing really
The managers were so kind and considerate to us. We arrived as ex-cyclone Debbie was hitting Coolum. Megan came up to our room, at risk of being blown off the stairs!, and gave us a torch and asked if we were OK. When I said we had no food and it was now too dangerous to go outside, she brought us back food for dinner and breakfast from her own kitchen, at no cost! Sadly the power went out after that and we could not cook some of the food, but the torch came in very handy. We survived on cold bake beans and cereal! Would certainly stay there again, the unit was nice, it did have an ocean view and the pool was refreshing and clean, which came in handy when my grandson visited a couple of days later and the beach was too wild and dirty to swim at.
