We had two nights in Surfers Paradise. Had a great deal from Mantra. Large one bedroom apartment with sea views. The decor is becoming a bit dated but more than adequate for our needs. Plenty of room and good facilities if you want to stay longer. Great sitting out on the balcony watching the waves roll in.

Nice hotel with beautiful Aztec theme & decor in the main foyer & pool area. Very convenient location a short light rail trip from all the GC action. Professional desk staff & good facilities. Currently being renovated as the hotel was built in 1999 & must have had a lot of guests.

Old crusty 1990s decor. Dirty rooms. Every room had something broken, worn, chipped, mouldy or dirty. Very smelly blankets. Disgusting kitchen with chips, burns, dents & incredibly dated finishes. The sofas had crumbs & smelt terribly. Only fresh & clean item was the bed sheets.

Lovely family stay in a great location close to beach, restaurants, and shopping. Beds were a little uncomfortable but the staff were friendly and the views amazing. Driving to theme parks etc. was easy from this location and the tram is also very close. Pool area is lovely and there's also a pool table and a kids games area.

Had a wonderful stay, my room 2103 was fantastic with a wonderful ocean view. The room was clean and very roomy. Nice to have a decent size fridge in the apartment with a decent and well fitted kitchen. The pool was amazing.

Resort is great. Our breakfast great. Our room, tired and dated. Beds below average and air conditioners noisy and lack of direction makes sleeping a challenge. Staff ok without being overly helpful. Expected a 4 star experience, got a 3 star.

Good property and great room. Just a pity about the check in process. On arrival I was told that there would be a $1000 bond held on my credit card. I was shocked at this as I had only been told about a $200 bond. The lady on the front desk didn't seem to care about my shock and it...
