I stayed here over a weekend as a Brisbane getaway. Overall first impressions are quite good - rooms are fairly spacious and resort amenities nice (nice pool, spa, gym and tennis court). Location is above all the best selling point - 5 minute walk to Surfers Paradise and close by the light rail network. WiFi is expensive so used my... More

When you first arrive at the resort, from the outside it looks quite nice and luxurious but you soon notice the "no parking, cars will be towed at owners expense" signs everywhere and get the feeling it's not so inviting. On arrival we were told that we needed to give a $200 security deposit, this was not mentioned when we... More

Resort was in a great location our room was right on the river so had a gorgeous view. The room itself was tidy but very dated, bed pretty uncomfortable and when I attempted to sleep on the sofa, the cushions could not be removed so was not a sofa bed as described. Staff were extremely helpful when microwave didn't work... More

This hotel has the potential to be lovely holiday accomodation however, furniture is very worn and dirty. The lounge had unknown gross white stains (I put a sheet over it) and the carpet is very discusting. When I complained immediately after check in the reception staff stated that they where full however, nothing else was done to resolve my issues.... More

Wow, I do not know where to start on how awful this hotel was. We arrived and the front desk area looked pretty run down and smelt like a stairwell in a multi-storey car park. The man attending the front desk gave us the usual conditions to sign for except it had that we had to empty our own rubbish... More

Amazing atmosphere & experience. With so much things to keep the kids entertained, you feel like you can start to relax. Will definitely be returning again. Was a good feeling knowing we didn't have to leave the resort for anything as they have a convenience store on site. Cant wait to go back.

This trip was to celebrate my daughters 18th. She wanted to go do all the theme parks for her birthday. This place was the perfect place to stay. Short walk to the esplanade, with its night markets an absolute treat. Bar right down stairs. Everything you could possibly want only a few mins walk. The staff were terrific, very accommodating,...
