Great value for money Clean and spacious Lovely management Free car park Great sea view I'm a bit stuck on what else to say the only reason it hasn't got five stars is because the wifi was very expensive.apart from that it is pretty much perfect.

The building has an elevator and we stayed in Room 516 which is on the south east corner, 5th floor. There is nothing fancy about the room; decor is a bit dated, but overall it was clean and roomy. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, laundry, but only 1 shower. Double bed in main bedroom, 2 Singles in the 2nd bedroom. Also...

My family stayed here for a week during Winter in a one bedroom and two bedroom apartment. The apartments were clean and tidy, had a kitchenette, washing machine and dryer in the apartments and had foxtel too. It was perfect for our stay. While it's not the glitz and glam of new high rise holiday accommodation - I couldn't fault...

Booked this on a very good value deal, which included free Wi-Fi. One bedroom unit. Asked for a higher floor but suspect due to the very good value deal we got was given a unit on the ground floor - good size, clean and in good condition. Reception staff excellent and very friendly. Great location half way between Broadbeach and...

We stayed at San Mateo for four nights at the end of Jan-start of Feb. We loved it. The apartments were a fair size and clean, some of the other reviews on here are unreasonable you have to expect a little dust in places, iv stayed at plenty of 5 star resorts to know that no one is perfect. San...

We have visited the San Mateo a number of times over the last five years and generally have had great experiences. However, there were a few significant let downs this time around. The underlying issues on this visit were cleaning and maintenance. It was awesome to see new washing machines in the apartments - a great step up from previously....

Thank you for taking the time to give us a review. We appreciate all feedback and do try to take it all on board. Yes, each apartment is individually owned and therefore each one is furnished differently, so yes, generally it is "first in, first serve" basis.
