Great location right on the beach with only a nice 15 minute drive to gold coast. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment which has a lot more space then expected.... it was huge. Everything we need for the week we could do at the unit.. Just a few steps outside and your right on a patrolled beach or a cafe just a few meters down the road. Only fault was it didn’t have aircon. Coming home everyday to a hot room was not pleasant. Yes you can open the windows for the sea breeze but very hard to sleep with the blinds banging. Thanks for a great stay
Large 2 bedroom self contained apartment with ocean views.”
Beautiful large apartment for 4 people with all mod cons, in a quiet area of Mermaid Beach. Close to cafe and SLSC with great food. Spindrift is absolute beachfront and all apartments have ocean views. Undercover parking, apartment modern and clean with two TV's, two AC's and fans.
We stayed in the Darenay building which is a short walk around the corner from Spindrift where you check in. We were in unit No 5 and found it modern, clean and very comfortable. Being right on Nobby Beach the views are outstanding and our teenagers loved being able to walk straight out onto the patrolled beach. There are plenty of top class eateries close by but only one very small convenience store just for milk/bread etc. The larger supermarkets are a short drive away. We would definitely recommend staying here.
Great location, be mindful air con not guaranteed ”
Spindrift is a great holiday accommodation providing excellent location literally on the beach. We stayed in an ocean front apartment on the ground floor which provided very easy access to both the pool and the beach. 2 bed apartment was plenty big enough and sea breezes in the living area were fantastic. It was however extremely hot in the bedrooms and bathrooms with hardly any relief provided by ceiling fans. There was no air con at all and this made sleeping difficult. We did however anticipate we may not have air con due to room description upon booking yet website indicated that there were sea breezes .... fine if you spend 24/7 in living area! Overall the location on the beach was the main selling point for us. 2 doors down is the Nobbys Beach surf club which had a great menu and a 5 min walk to Mexacali, Arc and other restaurants. Come prepared with your own beach towels, and bring replacement soap & toilet paper as these are additional cost if you need to replenish .
Spindrift had everything we were looking for - a quiet apartment right on the beach, within walking distance to cafes, restaurants. We loved the location and the most magnificent view over the ocean, and the direct access to the beach. Perfect week long break, and we'll definitely be back again.
Fabulous stay, friendly staff, SO close to the beach and a warm pool!”
Our family of 6 stayed (2 adults, 2 children and 2 toddlers) and it was fabulous. The beach is so close it felt like it was in our backyard, a beautiful view of the beach (and whales) from the balcony that also had sun all day long, the pool was beautiful and warm (and the spa even warmer) and it was very clean in the apartment. We liked the quiet beach that had lifesavers on duty the every day. An overall very quiet location, which we enjoyed with lots of nice cafes only a few minutes walk away. We were a little concerned with the toddlers as the balcony balustrades had a fair gap at the bottom, so we had to supervise very closely while outside. If you're travelling with young children, I would request a ground floor apartment. We were there in September/October, so no air con was fine, we could open a few windows and the sea breeze was lovely and cooled down the rooms almost instantly. Would definitely stay here again!
Lovely! again, cant go wrong with this spot!”
Spindrift is in a perfect spot for young families, it is central and close enough to get to all the ares of the Gold coast. Absolute water front rooms make the stay cool and are very peaceful. Netted security doors would be good so u could leave the doors open when out at night but no biggy!(might be mid summer though)The staff are great and friendly and even though we arrived after hours rushed around to fix a mistake (they forgot our cot). The guys who keeps the pool and BBQ area clean is a Legend!!!!! LOVE THE POOL, best ever, its so nice watching the ocean while in the spa. Thanks again spindrift we love your stuff!
We had a most enjoyable week at Spindrift apartments. The balcony view was amazing, and we were treated to whales going by. The kids loved the pool, and the spa, they had many hours of fun. The apartment was very well equipped. We loved the kitchen, the beds were comfortable and it was nice being self-contained and independent. Thankyou for a lovely place for a very relaxed holiday.
Lovely family holiday”
We had a lovely family holiday at Mermaid beach. The views of the beach from our apartment were amazing. We were so close to everything, especially the beach. We all had a lovely time.
Great view of the ocean, with the beach right there as soon as you walk outside. The beds were very comfy but if you are really picky with what pillow you sleep on then I’d recommend bringing your own. But, you get what you pay for. If you just want to get away and enjoy the view the Spindrift gives you then, you will be very happy. It is a fully functioning apartment with practically everything you would have at home. However, don’t expect the little things like coasters to put your drinks on, tissues or a cheap shower cap. Overall, the staff were very friendly and accommodating. A great place to stay.
Quiet and comfortable with superb ocean views”
Spindrift provides excellent self-contained accommodation. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. There is direct access to the beach and the patrolled area.
Beach Access ”
Staff are lovely, these are apartments so on weekends checkin closes early and keys left in lock box which is very handy. Older style block, but direct beach access is great for surfing families. Cages can be provided so boards etc can be left in the carpark safely. Nice warm pool, as it was raining whilst we were there and beach not swimmable due to blue bottles and excessive weed. Definitely recommend it and we will be back.
Lovely apartment right on the beach”
Disregard any of the bad reviews you may have read. This building is in the perfect location, close to shops and surf club. The staff are friendly and the unit we had was renovated and very clean . Everything was perfect. You could not fault this beach front unit on the first floor overlooking the pool. Did I mention that we were right on the beach. Will be back again. Love it.
Great Great Location”
Superb place on the beach itself. Our room had views of the waves crashing onto the shore at Mermaid Beach. My in-laws (from overseas) were sold on it. the hotel is a short drive (5 mins) from Coles supermarket that contains liquor store also. 20 minutes drive is Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and 20 minutes in the other direction is Sky Point Observation Tower and also the Pacific Fair Shopping Centre (every possible store). One drawback was that as we arrived after reception hours we couldn't access their internet. Poor. The other inconvenience is parking the car in the underground car park all the time. Apart from that the facilities inside the hotel were bonza! Plenty of cutlery, crockery and fridge oven etc.
The Place To Be at GC!”
Stayed in 2-bedroom apartment overlooking stunning Mermaid Beach. So convenient, quiet, beautiful and spectacular. Perfect for families - young and old!
Great spot, right on the beach, close proximity to cafes, shops, etc Great size apartment with all the mod cons, older style but clean and well maintained.
Great apartment, friendly staff and the view is to die for!!! Everything a small family needed was included and if you felt like eating out so many great options nearby. Patrolled beach is also just outside the hotel grounds which is very handy. We’ve already re-booked again for our holiday next year, could not recommend more :-)
This hotel provide everything we need, including washing machine and dryer. Beach is just in front of our apartment, kids enjoy the stay very much.
Perfect beach holiday location”
Excellent location with patrolled beach outside your door and surf club a few doors up the road. The complex is also only a short walk to the shops and cafes. The only negative was that our shower heads were old and kept falling down. The rooms were spacious and beds comfortable. The unit was clean and had everything we needed for a few days away including dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. We will definitely be coming back!
Great place, great location”
