Great Value with a smile,

We stayed 5 nights at the hotel with all things being great, sure if you want first class, you can be happy here, sure if you expect silver service, then you must pay the price, we found the resort comfortable, well managed and in an excellent location, the staff and reception girls were exceptional, we will recommend others to stay here, and so will we' again and I'm you too wont find it to be disappointing, normally we stay in a more upmarket hotel, but now we will come back again, GREAT VALUE, all very satisfactory, thanks to all the staff and the ones who you dont see about silently doing a magnificent job of looking after this resort......... great job guy's well done.

ORDINARY

my family were disappointed in the room as a whole. on line it looked much cleaner, the furniture looked more up to date, not even the dishes matched and the television certainly wasn't as tiny as we had. over all it is a very very tied resort, im sure in its day it would have been magnificent but it needs a lot of money spent on it. I wont be staying there again.

Bad backpackers

this hotel was over priced. No phone in the room, cracked glasses, horrible bed and worse pillows. Staff didn't care as they were changing owners.

Mainly peaceful close to the action in Surfers

Apart from an alarm going off one night between 2 & 3 a.m. and the Fire Brigade attending & making a racket I found this a peaceful amenity close to all the action in Surfers. Just what I needed the week I was there! I rated the amenities as average as the Gym lacked a wide range of modern equipment and room amenities were a bit tired (eg showerhead) but the Pool was great. I'd be happy to stay there again.

Don't let the name fool you

'Paradise' refers to the location - Surfers Paradise. 'Island' is shared with many other local homes. 'Resort' is a bit far fetched unless palm trees suffice. We booked a family room and it came with one queen size bed plus a sofa bed in the lounge/dining room that had a lump in it so big it could have created the arch in your back - hardly 'family' room facilities other than the kitchen (large fridge, stove, microwave) and laundrette. A roll away bed could just fit in the room to make it a 2+2 configuration. The location was ace - a couple of blocks away from the heart of Surfers Paradise with its multitude of cuisine and entertainment, and easy access to transport to explore all the Gold Coast has to offer. The hot water in the shower was strong but the shower rose was positioned somewhat low - any person over 5'8 would find it uncomfortable to get their head wet. The laundry was a welcome addition except the dryer did not work. A small starter pack of toiletries and dishwasher detergent is supplied but further requirements need to be purchased at own cost. The staff were friendly and helpful. There is under cover secure parking and secure access to the site. The main reason for giving this venue an overall ordinary rating is the lack of adequate security to the individual unit and that some features were not operational - e.g. dryer and restaurant - but apart from that it was good value for money when booked several months in advance through the Club

could be better

the location was the best part of our stay. exactly where we wanted to stay. some of the staff were friendly, but seemed like they wouldn't help out. room could have done with some fresh paint and some bits and pieces stuck back down or removed. but it had a decent shower and bed which is all we really needed. overall happy
