Needs Refurbishment

Old and worn out but location is great, air con works well, good to have a balcony. Bed was terrible. Pool was nice. Overall I would not stay there again unless there was no other choice.

Great location

Room was clean and tidy and big. GREAT location walk across the road to the beach. Elevator played up in the morning due to staff using it to service apartments. Pool was not cleaned until late. Some staff spoke bad English.

Don't bother

Great location if you get a room at the front all I could hear was screaming from the putt putt and slingshot and bins being emptied from the restaurant. I wouldn barely fit my 9 year old in the bathtub... Creeky floors extremely outdated never again!!

Great Value and Location

We had a great experience here - staff were friendly and helpful, they kindly assisted me with organising a birthday gift for my husband - in fact they went above and beyond for that. The rooms - may be a little dated - but they are making an effort with new paint and carpets and everything was clean - and our ocean view was amazing. The bed was comfortable and we had everything we needed for a one night stay in the studio room. We would not hesitate to stay there again - it is a lower budget hotel - so do not expect it to have fancy frills - just a great place to stay and enjoy all the amenities within walking distance.

Get what you pay for!

International Beach Resort @ The Gold Coast is an older property and your getting what you pay for when you stay there. We stayed overnight the staff were courteous and helpful they had taken out 2 children into account just based on our booking attention which was great. The site itself wasn't as good and we went in expecting an older decor and fittings and that is what we got. Its the little things that make it less than impressive like old worn carpets, doors with locks slightly out of alignment and noisy air conditioners. Did it affect our overnight stay much? No but if I were to plan to have stayed longer than 1 or 2 nights I would have booked elsewhere. Great location, cheap rates and free parking make it worth considering for a short stay though!

Would not go again

They kindly gave me an 'upgraded room' - I would have hated to have an ordinary one. It was pokey, the bed was very uncomfortable, the windows were filthy. The balcony door catch was almost rusted away and provided poor security. They also took $200 off my credit card as a security deposit - honestly you have struggled to do $200 of damage to this place- and they told me it would be reversed on check out. It is now a day later and it is still not reversed and I was told on check out that it would be 'several days' before the charge was reversed. I have stayed I. 5 star places throughout the world and never had such a ridiculous situation. Yes they take a credit card imprint but do not actually take the amount off your cardamom then make you wait several days to get it back. There is no way I would go to this place again and I would not recommend it to anyone. In addition it was hard to find and very, very noisy.

Warning

I highly advise anyone considering this hotel to re-think there plans. Pros: Free parking, beach front, location. Cons: Lost booking when arrived, only 1 lift working, carpets stained throughout hotel, broken windows in room, balcony door not installed correctly, wind and rain enters room, entry door to room incorrectly installed - light entering under and around door frame, stained curtains, both lifts broken in middle of night, extremely rude staff. This is the worst hotel I've ever stayed at and ive travel through some shady ones in central America. Never again!
