I have stayed at over a dozen resorts and apartments in Surfers recently. The pricing for Focus fits the accomodation. It is a very good price for the proximity to the beach and cavill ave. Building is a bit dated, restaurant downstairs appears to have been under renovation for some time - this would be excellent if it reopened. If you are after a family holiday with beach views, in a large apartment without spending a fortune this is a reasonable option. The balconies are very good for small children also which suited us with our 3yo. Only real criticism was the beds need updating, both double beds sunk in the middle.

Thanks for taking the time out to leave a review, we appreciate both the positive and negative comments as they allow us to adapt ways we can make our guests stay more enjoyable. I am so pleased we were able to offer you an ocean view and a spacious well appointment apartment for your family at a cost effective tariff. We are in a great location within walking distance to Cavill Avenue and across from the beach. Thank you for your comments in regards to the beds that need addressing, we do not know if something is uncomfortable until it is reported to Reception, and we will pass your comment to the owner of the unit.

The apartment needs a good renovation. Hall ways are outdates and look like a scene from a horror movie. The rooms smelt really bad, and need attention to major cleaning as we had ants around the room. The dryer was extremely dirty with dust all around. Balconies seemed as though they havnt been cleaned for a few months. We had gaps around the windows with high pressure winds causing high pitched whistling sounds. Pros? The reception staff were extremely lovely, security was helpful and helped us locate our keys during late check in. The spa was to die for with warm water and pool was warm for a cool day. The reception area looked very fancy and welcoming.

Hi Nisa, Thanks for your review and constructive comments. The Body Corporate in in the process of updating all the hallways, we are in the process of having these painted and carpeted. I am so sorry to hear that the room smelt bad and had ants, we would have happily rectified this for you if this was bought to our attention. I will also look into your comments re: dryer lint, balconies and the wind noise. I am so pleased to hear the reception staff were pleasant and security was helpful. I hope you decide to join us again for your next Gold Coast stay. Kind Regards, Rebecca

Apartment steps away from Surfers paradise beach

Had a spacious 3 bedroom apartment. Building a bit dated but very clean and excellent location. Staff very friendly and helpful. Replaced broken dishwasher in a day. Very good value for money.

Nice hotel close to the beach

Pros: Those things mentioned above e.g. staff, balconies, views, proximity to the beach, fast lifts and life savers directly opposite
Cons: The rooms were in desperate need of modernisation particularly in the bathrooms and a good paint and good clean. Very 1970s.
Location: The facilities were more than adequate with a pool, spa, gym, table tennis, tennis courts, Shops restaurants and Cavil ave a short walk away
Unfortunately the room was a bit tired with flaking paint and old fashioned bathrooms etc The staff were very friendly and accommodating and were very efficient in rectifying the minor matters that needed to be attended to. It was in a great position, just four streets away from Cavil Ave and right on the beach. The views were fantastic and I couldn't believe how quick the lifts were to arrive. Often you have to wait ages to catch a lift. Unfortunately on one t.v. and no air conditioning in our room but there were terrific balconies with extremely wide doors that opened up a lot and allowed the sea air to flow through. The beach was right across the road as were the surf life savers.

Hotel is basic. Stayed in the deluxe apartments. Couch had a big tear in it. No a/c - just fans. Only one toilet roll in bathroom. No extras - for a week!!! Absolutely nothing extra in the rooms. Construction site next door so lots of noise starting from 6:30 in the morning. Unable to use pool during day because of the construction noise- the construction is right by the pool. On the plus side- right near the beach.
