Golden Riviera Beach Resort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 February 2017

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.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the beach offer fantastic views.

What a location. Tucked into a quiet street next to the Tugun Surf Club this resort has absolute beachfront views. I booked a 2 bedroom apartment and we could not get any closer to the beach if we tried. We were on the third floor unit 73 and the breeze flowing through the unit and sounds of the waves crashing was amazing. The apartment is a generous size, well kitted out with 2 bathrooms and 2 toilets. Everything you need is catered for. Clean and tidy and very friendly helpful staff. Double carpark was a bonus. Pool, sauna gym, bbq. it is all there. Love this place.

Room Tip: Go the extra and book a beachfront. Definitely worth it

Stayed for 2 nights with the family.
Great location right on the beach and near cafes.
The room we stayed i was in great condition (i believe it had been recently redone) and perfect size for the 4 of us. There was hardly any noise which was very relaxing.

The room was lovely, the view beautiful and the grounds immaculate (we saw a very hardworking groundsman). The resort had a very relaxing feel. The pool was enormous and the managers were very friendly, welcoming and extremely helpdful.
Its a short walk to a fantastic night market and shops and restaurants.

There are just so many positive things to say about this resort:
The staff would rate as the best you could find;
The rooms are spacious and well maintained;
The resort is kept spotless;
It has an absolute beach frontage;
It has a large number of dining places within a few minutes walk;
The pool is a good size and well maintained;
Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is a 10-15 minute easy walk;
There is a generous WiFi allowance.

There are no lifts but the stairs will keep you fit. (You can always ask for a ground floor apartment anyway). It is near the airport but the planes do not bother you at all.

We loved our stay and will go there again.

Easy to locate resort with beach just outside the resort. Checking in was a breeze and settle to our room quickly. Grocery store and BWS store just round the conner so you could cook a great meals and enjoy your BWS in your own privacy. We had our enjoyable time cooking, eating and drinking...relaxing and enjoying the winter in Gold Coast.

Room Tip: choose a room with ocean or partial ocean view it will be quiet yet not disturb by the sound of the...

What a great place to stay for a relaxing holiday!! We caught the bus from the airport, about 10 mins ride. Dropped us off in Tugun and a flat, easy 1 minute walk to the resort. Easy check in... within a few minutes we were overlooking the beautiful beach from our balcony. Apartment large, clean, all amenities. Great nights sleep,..comfy bed. The local shops had all you would need. Plenty of places to eat at if you wanted a night out ranging from fast food, pub, club, restaurants. Or if you prefer a night in, take away galore. Also two excellent supermarkets, the small IGA had a range of Lenards products...so you could cook or have a BBQ. Local shops included a medical clinic, pharmacy, two amazing bakeries, hairdresser, and an abundance of coffee shops. Even an op shop if you liked to wander in. It was great to sleep with the window open and listen to the ocean. An easy walk each day in either direction along the beach. Take away coffee before, or whilst strolling along, or wander up to Currumbin for a coffee. Safe, clean, quiet, relaxed. The planes fly directly over the resort but this posed no problem... in fact a bit of fun to be plane spotting from so close. The resort itself has beautiful shady grounds that are immaculate. Wake in the morning and within a few minutes you could be on the beach strolling, swimming, watching dolphins. Checkout on leaving again was hassle free, walk down to the bus, and back to the airport within 15 minutes, all to sadly on the flight home!!

Room Tip: Only three levels..obviously the higher up the better the view.
