Daniel K. Families with young children Singapore, July 18, 2015
For those on a budget

Price, location and service
The apartment was OK in terms of size and facilities but the things they used are starting to show their age. The shower screen door was not in good condition and the dryer was acting funny. Best to fork out more and stay in better ones.

Average rooms. Great service.

The staff, the size of the apartments, the washer and dryer
The staff were very welcoming and whilst there were a few things now working in our room they were fixed very quickly. I'd stay here again! The location was amazing- right near the shops, bus stops and beach. Amazing value for money!

A comfortable stay

Friendly and very helpful staff. The location was close to the main touris areas of Aurfers Paradise and located in a quiet area. The rooms are well appointed with kitchen, TV & air conditioning.
Restful and a relaxing place to put the feet up at the end of the day.

Never again

it was on Chevron Island where I wanted to be. cleaner from Bosnia was nice.
Awful. It was dirty , rooms were small and narrow, every plate was different like they took them from rubbish. pots were damaged, dangerous for health.

Great location and value for money

Location, Price, Swimming Pool
The apartment was adequate, however it was a little dated and could do with a refurb. The location was superb for access to surfers and the island itself has most services. The reception was never open which made it hard to utilise the service they claim to offer and being charged an additional $30/night for our 5 year old son really took the shine off our stay - unfortunately. The apartments have a lot of potential and they are good value for money, its just a shame that the management/owners dont seem to understand the hospitality industry and their clients.

Needs major upgrade

Location, Lock-up Garage, price in the lower bracket.
Looks great on the website and from the roadside. The Office smells. The room was dirty and badly in need of an upgrade. The freezer in the fridge was clogged up with a spill and ice that has been there for some time. There were many stains and marks on the walls. The bedcover was dirty. The lamp in the bedroom was wobbly. The mirrored door on the robe was falling apart. The carpet was stained. The curtain in the lounge had a major dirty stain along the bottom and spots as well. The small table and coffee table were wobbly. The towel rail was almost falling off. The shower head leaked ad was not sealed in the wall correctly. The shower did not drain properly. We had to spray the rooms with deodoriser to make it smell better. I guess you get what you pay for. I booked on-line based on the price, outside appearance and location.

comfortable, quiet, good parking.

close to beach and restaurants, quiet, friendly staff
was a nice room, quiet complex with free parking. room was fairly clean, bit of mould on the ceiling above the shower. private balcony. good for couples, aircon is extra at $5/day. dated but well priced, excellent for closeness to surfers paradise. all shops/beach/attractions of surfers are within walking distance. car is in a secure parking under the building. definately worth the price. :-)
