Great location and great facilities

Pros: Fantastic Facilities - tennis court, squash court, indoor pool and spas. Loved the location of walking straight on to the beach from the pool area.
Great location right on the beach and easy 15 min walk to Cavill Avenue. The property has wonderful facilities from tennis courts, squash courts, inside and outside pool and spas. Unfortunately the apartment (12D) itself let the place down, as it needs work as it had a broken DVD player, no blinds in bathroom, rusty outside furniture etc. and needs quite a bit of updating. The apartment is spacious but with the flaws, it wasn’t worth what we paid for it. Would stay again but has to be in a better apartment.

Outdated but still a good stay

Pros: private beach access, selection of pools (all heated), 2 great very hot spas, secure parking, great view, proximity to CBD, full kitchen facilities
unit was quite old and dated, really needed a refurb, repaint, carpet cleaning, freshen up of bathrooms and kitchen, cupboards, etc. Lots of little things needing maintenance such as chipped tap enamel, cupboard doors, lamps, etc but too be expected all along the Gold Coast as so many places that have been there for a very long time. Also needed a good Spring clean (mattress toppers, tile grout, glass tables,etc.) But great location and 270 degree views, good facilities, secure parking, heater, laundry in the unit, fast elevator, lovely reception staff, quiet location, comfortable beds and couches, full size fridge/freezer
