Dirty and unenjoyable.

The unit was spacious enough although the cleanliness was very disappointing! Also the bed was rock hard and unusable. We actually had to sleep on the lounge which was actually more comfortable than the bed was! Location was good with a short walk to the tram station and beach. Overall our stay wasn't very enjoyable and I would recommend to anyone to spend a few more dollars on more 'accomodating' accomidation.

Great view and great price

Not only was the apartment spacious, the 3 balconies had great views, beds were super comfy, staff were lovely and our couch was so nice one of us fell asleep on it and decided to stay there. Near heaps of eateries, convenience stores and has ample parking. We will be back next year!

place to reside relax and enjoy holiday

Pros: see above
Cons: na
Location: perfect location within walking distance of major shopping centres and light rail station - right on the gold coast highway line
I chose Ipanema as my base for attending Bluesfest at Byron Bay over easter 2018 and the commonwealth games after easter. I found the location perfect, and all aspects of the resort exemplary; in summary the whole experience was one to savour and i will be returning for bluesfest in 2019 - and bringing two friends who will also need single bedroom apartments. Receptionist chardia (?? spelling) was particularly helpful and accommodating only adding to the enjoyment of the stay.
