I moved into Sailfish Cove while attending Bond University. I was meant to have a roommate but that never happened. They basically forced me out of my unit and into another unit before my lease was up because they were loosing money from me not having a roommate which was out of my control. I was only given a day...

We stayed here for 7 days with our four young children and we paid $650 for the week - fantastic price compared to other resorts anywhere on the gold coast. My parents were also with us and were upgraded for free to a 3 bedroom unit so they could be close to us instead of on the other side of...

This is actually a townhouse with a lot of permanently residing families, in Robina which is away from the real gold coast action. However, for those who are looking for a home away from home, this might be a good option. You can't walk to anything... Need to drive so this is a good option for families on a budget...

I found Sailfish Cove by purchasing a accommodation voucher on ebay. It had the cheapest rate for up to 6 people (there are 5 of us) for 7 nights - $650 for a 3 bedroom apartment. I couldn't even get that for a onsite cabin at a tourist park! The reception staff are lovely and helpful. Offered us a second...

I stayed at this resort for a week with my family of 6. I paid an extra $10 a week and received a river frount room. The water is literally 3 meters away from the back door. I loved the walk in wardrobe and ensuite. I loved the fact it felt like home. We had 3 toilets, 2 bathrooms, kitchen...

I am writing this as a longer-term tenant of Sailfish Cove. Sailfish Cove is located about a 5-10 minute drive from Broadbeach and Burleigh Heads, bit further to Surfers but convenient to Robina Town Centre- however, you do need a car to get to most places. The place holds 200+ units, containing a mix of permanent residents, Bond University students...

We had an extended family holiday and booked out three apartments. On check-in they mixed up the payments. The units are outdated and need a thorough clean. Blinds were broken, some lights didn't work and the dishwasher set off the electrical safety switch. Beds were uncomfortable. The permanent residents hate holiday makers - one yelled at us for not parking...
