              We booked 2 unit of 3bedroom apartment. Our family love this 2 unit, nice and clean unit. Walking distance to beach market and surfer paradise. Throw stone distance to gold coast beach and cypress avenue railway station. Daily sunrise view from breakfast counter was the bonus of our trip. Kiddos enjoy the seaside view from the bottom window of breakfast counter too.

              Superb stay at the Focus Apartment!”

              Stay - Very happy and lucky to be allocated a sea-facing apartment on the 28th floor! Fantastic view! Felt good to just listen to the waves and watch the people go by on the street/beach. Apartment itself was very spacious, a little tired (it's been around for about 30+ years now!) but everything was clean and in good working condition. Location - short walk to the heart of Surfers Paradise. Service - Staff were very kind to initiate and inform about late check-in details. Overall, would stay here again if I'm in the GC area!

              Loved our stay at the Focus Apt. Night manager had to let us in after hours because I forgot to contact the front desk before arriving and obtain a passcode to enter the building after hours. Wonderful friendly help from permanent guest and night manager - service with a smile and I appoligise for waking you up. The rooms were large and very clean. The hotel is under some construction and slowly being upgraded and so we didn't get to use the outdoor facilities. View from the room was awesome. 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms made sharing with friends complete. 1 negative point: We had a large 8 seater van and could not park in their already squashy carpark that had rollerdoors / flipdoors on every carspace. On the plus side: We were given permission to park i the visitors carpark out front (Thankyou) We had a lovely time!!!

              Although this apartment block is of an older style & could do with some upgrades, you cannot take away from the views. The apartment I was in was very nice, well equipped & cosy. I would most definitely recommend FOCUS APARTMENTS to family & friends & will be back again w/out hesitation.

              Nice apartments, a little dated”

              We stayed in a 3-bedroomed apartment on the 19th floor. We had fantastic views from FIVE balconies in our apartment. As the building is circular, you get great views from all apartments. The staff were excellent, from the ladies on reception, to the friendly night manager, and all the security staff. The building is only about ten minutes walk to Cavill Ave, and right across the road from the lovely beach. The grounds are great, with a nice pool, kids pool, and spa. The description of the property does state there is an indoor pool, however this is incorrect. There is a sauna, a gym and a nice outdoor BBQ area. The apartment we stayed in was a little dated. The furniture could do with an upgrade, however the beds were very comfortable. We had two air conditioners. The one in the lounge looked new but didn't function correctly. The one in the main bedroom worked well, however it dripped lots of water onto the carpet constantly, and the outdoor unit was so rusty it looked like it would fall to pieces if we touched it! The main bathroom had a spa bath installed, however the jets didn't work, so it was just a big bath in reality. Every apartment is issued with a parking spot underneath the building, and each bay has a garage door so you can secure your vehicle. Some garage doors were up and overs, and some were roller doors. Our bay had a roller door that was not wound tightly, and hung so low that we couldn't get our car into the bay so we had to leave our car in the guest car park every day. We did have a lovely time though, despite these small annoyances, and wouldn't hesitate in recommending these apartments. There is a seafood restaurant at the bottom of the apartments, however we would never have eaten in there because the tanks of lobsters and fish that were on full view from the window were disgusting, and didn't entice us inside.

              Pros: Good location walking distance to main shopping areas in surfers paradise, very clean rooms, adequately furnished, very friendly staff and security personnel. Cons: very lousy wifi. Signal keeps dropping off. Others: Underground Car park flooded from heavy rain. But we were allowed to park at alternative lots within the property and that’s highly appreciated.

              Great location and we had a beautiful renovated apartment with air conditioning - we were very lucky. Being solid brick it was quiet. The views were amazing. The gym needs free weights and better quality equipment (I would not be happy paying the BC fees for the equipment it has. It also needs to be double size - no need for indoor table tennis. The tennis net was low so not suitable for our serious players but fine for little kids and the pool was fantastic - better than appeared in photos. The patrolled beach 100 m south is better than the patrolled beach across the road as the waves break further out so give you a longer ride.

              No dramas, as others have said the Wifi is pretty ordinary. Actually very ordinary, we couldn't get it to work in the time we were there. But the location is fantastic and value for money is great. Just far enough from the Surfers Paradise filth but close to the beach. Looks like we've found a new place to stay every trip, perfect for families.

              Value for Money”

              value for money, most facilities available, helpful staff

              It was excellent. The apartments were self equipped with most kitchen and household facilities. The views of the ocean were magnificent and the apartment itself was very well designed and spacious. The only things missing were free wi-fi and housekeeping. Overall, it was a great stay and I would definitely recommend it to families and groups who want to save money on accommodation without compromising on location and/or ease of access to facilities.

              Good for the price”

              We stayed in a 2 bedroom Superior Appartments . First impressions where it looked good looked like the living area had been upgraded. Got to the bedrooms and there is no Aircon , no fans . On a day where the nights where near 28deg even a cheap portable fan in each bedroom as I ended up sleeping on the couch both nights due to how hot the rooms where. We used the aircon in the living area however we ended up with a pool on our balcony due to a broken over flow pipe and the balcony sloping away from the drain . Cleanliness wasn’t great to be honest all the window tracks and door tracks looked like they hadn’t been cleaned in years and the people that stayed before us had fish and chips as the remnants where still under the bench outside. The rest of the room could do with an upgrade but to not have fans or Aircon in the bedrooms is a major no for me especially on the Gold Coast .

              was a bit disappointed that our balcony was flooded with water from aircon as a result my mother in law slipped and injured her leg and I cut my hand as I slipped and lost balanced wen I informed staff they weren't really concerned about it. invaded by ants and cockroaches in our apartment which was a concern apart from all that nice rooms close to everything gorgeous views
