We stay at Swell every time we visit the Gold Coast area. It is in a fantastic location, the staff are lovely and the rooms are a great size & the kids love the pool! Definitely recommend it.

Pros: very spacious, good facilities in the kitchen. great water pressure in the shower. Nice pool area, with bbq, kids loved it.
Cons: just a sheet on the bed, got very cold at night. we couldn't open our curtains as several other balconies were facing ours, no privacy. terrible ironing board. Expected a TV in the room for the price. dull lighting.
Location: above Club Burleigh, which was great, very convenient. walk to surf club, beach, cold rock.

Location: Excellent location within an easy stroll to great eateries and take away venues. Great parks and beach also close by.
As a family it was great having the bedrooms located downstairs when it was time for the kids to go to bed, however we didn't use the upstairs bathroom and found entering downstairs a pain whenever you forgot something. Pool water was warm for this time of year and facilities excellent.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: If you sell yourself as a resort, see to it that people do experience a resort feeling on arrival and during their stay.
We booked this hotel yesterday en route from Noosa to the Gold Coast. We stayed in various hotels here in Australia with the minimum requirements - Free Parking, Free Wi-fi and 2 kids in the party 11/14. On arrival at the hotel, even though the ad read (sleeps up to 2 children) we were told that we had to pay a further $30 dollars per day for the kids. We were not informed about the use of Wi-fi or a code and on entering the room we did not connect automatically either. Further we had to wipe faeces and vomit of the toilet bowl in the en-suite bathroom. Left overs in the fridge. Couches were sticky and filled with dirt on the side which popped up every time you sat down and got up. Empty bottles and clothing labels from previous guests under the bed, dust on the headboards, bedside tables, cupboards and picture frames. Sticky floors and old pantyhose on the floors behind the side tables. The place had a fowl smell to it and the balcony door could close but not lock. My husband went down immediately to take it up with the Manager but unfortunately reception was closed and we were stuck for the night. I went down this morning and ask to speak with the Manager but was told that due to it being weekend there in not one on duty. I informed Helen the receptionist of the above, showed her the photo’s and told her that we would like a refund for the other nights and that we are checking out. I was told to take up contact with Expedia for a refund.

Not for business travel

Pros: Close to the beach.
Cons: Market as an extended stay apartment - not a resort. If you claim to be a resort at least staff your front desk and offer maid service.
Location: Close to surfers paradise and Broad beach.
This is not a hotel or resort - it is an apartment building. Good for a family on vacation or an extended stay, not for business travel. Front desk is not staffed during normal check in times.

Handy location

We wanted a comfortable one-nighter not too far from the airport to start our Gold Coast holiday. Both the hotel and Burleigh Heads fitted the bill perfectly.

Pros: It's location and the secure parking.
Cons: The apartment we had suffered from excessive plumbing noise from adjacent room and noise from people and vehicles on the road nearby.
The hotel is comfortable and well appointed with helpful friendly staff.

Pros: Great rooms, great pool and close to everything
Location: Great location, walking distance to main street, restaurants, national park around the point & close to beach.
Great apartments, very spacious and has everything you need in kitchen and laundry. Great pool and spa, close to main street, beach, restaurants. The rooms around the pool are our favourite as they have a beautiful outlook & you can't hear the traffic noise.
