Not Clean

Pros: Location
Cons: Hire a cleaner!
We stayed here for our holiday for 9 days. The location to the central part of the Gold Coast and Pacific Fair was ideal. Has a large pool and spa, which was great. Our room was large, 2 bedrooms, with ensuite, laundry and kitchen. The cleanliness was most disappointing, found the tv remote under a lounge cushion, which apart from the remote, had a toothbrush, chips and lollipop sticks under there too! The glass sliding doors were covered in hand prints, smudges and other slimey things, the balcony had 6 discarded cigarette butts there on the floor. We bought our own cleaning products and cleaned the place on the first morning, including air freshener. The crockery and cutlery also needed to be washed before use. The towels and bed linen were clean however.

Hi Troy, Once again we are sorry for the unpleasant experience you'd had while you were trying to create a wonderful memory for the New Year celebration . Diamond Cove Resort is now under new management and yes, we have hired an excellent cleaner to make sure the townhouses and apartments are serviced and cleaned to an excellent standard. Please do contact us next time you are in Gold Coast, we will definitely make it enjoyable for your stay. Our sincere apologies, Diamond Cove Resort

Large Apartment with aircon

Large spacious apartment. A bit older style with everything you need including aircon and Foxtel. The pool and spa pool were great. Close to Pacific Fair shops. Across highway from beach but close enough to walk to surf patrol beach each day.

Have stayed here before and had a great time. However this time room was dirty, toilet leaking, no hot water. Only there for one night. Staff were very apologetic next morning but that didn't change the state of the room.

Disappointed Stay

The bed was absolutely awful. No free Wi-Fi as advertised. Kitchen sink filthy. Only goid thing I can say about experience was the bathroom was ok. So pleased I was only there for one night. I was in room 46. Never again!!

Way overpriced!

This place was dreadful. The unit needed a HUGE clean. The carpets were absolutely filthy and the dust was so bad. My son has not had any problems with his Asthma for a very long time but after staying there was off school for three days as he didn't recover from being in such a dusty environment. The bed linen was appalling. One light blanket per bed which we found in the cupboard was not enough for Winter and I'm not sure the last time they were washed. The "quilt cover" was literally a single piece of material! The pool area is advertised to close at 9:30 yet at 10:30pm there were still people down there making a lot of noise. We were unable to use the tv at all during our stay as the remote was broken and the tv was unable to be turned on without it. I contacted a staff member during our stay and didn't receive a response. I emailed afterwards and once again did not receive a response. They did not provide what I paid for. Do not waste your money.
