Recently stayed at Swell resort for the second time at Burleigh Heads and appreciated the low key arrangements and self catered unit with high quality beds and appliances with versatile facilities which could accommodate the family. We made a three bed arrangement out of a two bed one by moving a single bed in the lounge . My 86yr old...

I arrived after the reception area had closed but had clear instructions as to how to gain a key so no difficulties there. The lady on reception was fantastic. Incredibly friendly, warm and approachable. I was by myself so it was lovely to have such a friendly face. The resort was clean and well kept. It's in a fantastic location...

Was meant to be here with other people and kids but a change of plans meant I'm here alone. Great location for shops nearby. Services here are low key but sufficient. Rooms are clean, quiet, very nice. Easy and excellent place to stay.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with friends. Check in was quick and easy, the parking instructions were a bid odd and we ended up parking in the wrong area. Oh well, nobody moved us on but we didn't know how to exit until someone walking past told us to drive onto the yellow square in front of the...

The facilities and location are great but the reception staff desperately need customer service training.

When this was pointed out...
