Have just spent 5 nights at the Golden Riviera Beach Resort, originally only booked 4 nights but loved it that much we didn't want to leave. We booked an absolute beach front apartment (won't say the number) just in case it's fully booked for next time we visit and we definitely will be back.
The view from the apartment was stunning, everything the Gold Coast should be! Luckily we are spoilt only having to travel from Brisbane, but being originally from the UK would have been over the moon to have those views after 24 hours on an plane.
The gardens were beautifully kept with no sign of rubbish anywhere.
As has been spoken about in previous reviews there are no stairs, not an issue for us but definitely something to think about if elderly or not fully mobile. Just ensure you book a ground floor unit and you to can enjoy everything the resort has to offer.
Our apartment had all the amenities of home, the kitchen was fully stocked with all the utensils a family needs if self catering is your thing.
Everything you need is close at hand, restaurants, shops and parks, we have a car but public transport is close by so again not really a problem. Tugun at night we found quiet but that is exactly what we wanted, have stayed at Surfers a number of times and although ideal for the younger generation, the constant sound of emergency vehicles is not something we wanted.
The apartments are directly under the flight path of the Gold Coast airport an absolute thrill for someone like me who loves planes, the noise was not obtrusive and the flights stop around 1000pm so a good nights sleep is there to be had.
Check in and check out were painless, and reception staff very helpful.
I definitely recommend the resort for a short break from Brisbane or for a longer trip from interstate or overseas, fellow Poms do yourself a favour and visit this part of the Gold Coast and think about the Golden Riviera ra Beach Resort I know you won't be disappointed.
