We are now in our fifth week of a six week holiday staying at the Swell Resort. We have stayed here on several occasions as we love Burleigh.

Not the cheapest place, but better than most other options in Burleigh and the 1 bdr option is a good size. Short walk to the beach and close to all the cafes and restaurants. Good size pool and gym. A bit disappointing that they charge $5 each for pool towels though.

Had high hopes when initially booking at the Swell, however this sadly did not turn out to be the case! We both felt that the cleanliness of the place was not up to scratch.

I make a biennial trip to Brisbane from the UK to visit my young 9 year old daughter and Burleigh has always been location of choice because of it's chilled out vibe and beautiful beach.

Found this on a comparison site for the right price. A few nights in a 2 bedroom apartment self-contained.

Disappointed with a few issues we had during our stay at Swell. We are pretty easy going people but the final issue we encountered encouraged me to write this review.

We enjoyed our stay at Swell over the Christmas period. Location is convenient to everything in Burleigh. It would have been nice to have a Unit on the front but the highway road noise is a distraction so it was lucky that we had a Unit on the 5th floor overlooking the Bowling greens which was great. Beds were very...
