Loved the pool area and downstairs amenities. The apartments are large but some need an update. This is the second time we have stayed and we will certainly return. The views are spectacular but need more chairs on the balcony.

Big and Beautiful

Lovely spacious apartment with huge main bedroom and spa in ensuite. Our 3 bedroom apartment was the perfect size for our family of 6. Fantastic views over the ocean and parklands. Close to patrolled beach, kids park, shops and restaurants. Indoor and outdoor pools and spa was fantastic for kids. Would definitely stay again!

Broadbeach 2 Bedroom Appt - Ocean view

Pros: Location. Size of apartment was very generous and view from balconies was excellent. Comfortable lounge. Extra large showers and king size bed.
Cons: Advertised as air-conditioned but second bedroom only had fans. Carpet very stained and needs replacement. Toaster very small and bread didn't fit.
Location: Pacific Fair a short 5 minute walk. Patrolled Beach across the road. Big park with BBQ's and surf club across the road. Lots of dining op
Excellent, very large and comfortable two bedroom apartment - stayed during Commonwealth Games and was very handy to transport, dining, pacific fair and games venues. Patrolled Beach just across the road. Pool and onsite facilities were very good. Quiet but handy to everything.

Nice older style spacious apartment with gorgeous sea view. Older style apartments have the lovely large bathrooms on the GC. The brand new ones are smaller. I will stay here again in future.
