We had 3 amazing nights in a 3 bedroom apartment. Beautiful views and you could sit out front or back of the top floor depending on weather! Heaps of room for 3 couples, easy walk to restaurants, surf club and beaches.

The rooftop as you say has 360* views and plenty of outdoor furniture to enjoy. We are glad you enjoyed the Resort and its location to the beach, shops and...

The resort suited us perfectly being situated between Rainbow Bay and Duranbah. Shops and cafes were a short walk away and the airport was just a short taxi ride...

We are staying in a 2 bedroom self contained flat. It is clean, spacious, and has air conditioning and a washing machine. The pool is clean and a comfortable temperature, and there is a nice covered area to sit and have a BBQ. It is a few minutes walk to a lovely beach and about 10 minutes walk to a...

Arrived at resort late afternoon, check in quick and efficient. This is not a serviced apartment. We had a parking space in the basement and we had use of a luggage trolley to take to our apartment so only one trip is required from car. Opened door to a bright and spacious apartment with views to the ocean and pool....

On 27 Apr 2016, travelled from Coolangatta to Surfers Paradise, along the way dropped by Rainbow Bay. From the Pacific Ocean, strong wind blew, strong waves hit on its shore. Little people at the beach. It's also a site whereby enemies sunk few vessels during World War II. Monument to glorify the bravery of the Australian men and women who...

Nice accommodation and lovely location. Bed very comfortable and loved the large balcony. Only negative was the early check out of 9am. I have never stayed somewhere with such an early check out.

We stayed here in July 2015 for a few nights and it was a great stay. We had a 2 bedroom apartment that was huge and it was a shame it was only the two of us there. The view of the coast was pretty good even though partly obstructed by another building but that happens. Parking underground was easy...
