I have been doing a lot of research on a good place to stay in the Surfers Paradise/Broadbeach area. I've been looking mainly at Q1, QT and Mantra Circle on Caville. I know these are all surfers paradise, so would be happy to extent options in Broadbeach if you have a suggestion. My question is, would you recommend one over the other? We are a NZ couple, just wanting to: relax, have good views of the ocean and be able to wander to restaurants/shops etc. We will have a car, so parking would be handy as well. We have a reasonable budget, but nothing super crazy! I see Mantra Circle on Caville says it is undergoing maintenance and I wonder if this will hinder our experience?
Would love to know anyone's thoughts or other hotel suggestions.
