Management we're so friendly and helpful. Everything was clean and in working order. The pool and the garden surroundings were immaculate. Best of all the resort is located right on the beach and we had spectacular views from our spacious 2 bedroom apartment.
Just a note - The resort is in the flight path from the Gold Coast airport but it is not too close and it's not a busy airport with mostly flights in the middle of the day. It was actually fun watching the different planes fly over.

We stayed in a first floor apartment looking directly over the beach. The resort has a nice pool, and is right next to lots of good restaurants as well as supermarkets (fully equipped kitchen). The reception lady was very helpful. Hope to stay here again soon.

Booked online and was impressed by the pictures, location and services including free wifi. We booked and paid months in advance but was told on arrival that we had amount owing on our booking so double charged. This was refunded when we got to our room and checked bank statement. Also took $200 bond which wasn't released for 6 days. Weren't thrilled to find in the information booklet left in our room that the internet was basic and could really only be used in pool area and reception. We weren't given wifi password and so we phoned and requested it and was told by a different person that checked us in that we would have received it as it was one of the 4 bits of paper we were handed upon arrival. So we got no internet for our stay. The 4 pieces of paper we received was:
1: a map of the parking lot
2: a survey to fill out at the end of our stay
3: the eftpos receipt for the second time we had to pay the full amount of our booking ( we got an extra piece of paper too when it was refunded)
4: the receipt for the $200 bond that was held onto for 6 days after checking out.

Whilst the room was modern clean and spacious, there was a fair bit of hassle we could have done without.

I visited for work in Feb 17 and we stayed in 2 bedroom apartments. The beachfront location was amazing. The pool and spa area was lovely. The apartment was very spacious, but did get warm. We had to sleep with the bedroom doors open as the fans above level 1 were extremely loud. It was a great set up for visiting families.

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.
